                I was just wondering if any one has a contact email address to book a wedding. Or if any one on here has actually already booked a wedding at this resort and if you could tell me how long it took them to get back to you.

                thanks very much :)

                  I have the contact info at home. I will post it tonight when I have time. I also have a Vow Renewal package I will try and post tonight as well.

                  As far as the time it takes to hear from them: Originally before they hired a coordinator I was in contact with a National Sales Manager of NH Hotels (the hotel chain this resort is under) by the name of Nora. When I first emailed the resort, I swear, she responded in 10 minutes! Boy was I shocked! She replied saying she was calling the Judge later that date to confirm a date & time for other weddings and needed my contact information to see if my requested date was available. I got a confirmation back from her within a week with the new wedding coordinators information. This was back in late November/early December timeframe.

                  Since then, I have only heard from the coordinator once, asking how many people would I plan on having. I have emailed her at least twice after that in mid December and have yet to hear from her.

                  The resort just officially opened this past Saturday (1/5/0, so I am giving the coordinator the benefit of the doubt for now. I am assuming she is getting settled in and whatnot. I am in the process of making final decisions, but now, I think I am leaning more towards EdenH.
