Our wedding was in May. Although there was another wedding also, their time was earlier than ours and we did not hear any music nor did we have any interruption during our ceremony, it was perfectly planned. Since our initial visit, we had very many consultants handling our plans. They were all adequate, but the most efficient was Brian. He was completely at our disposal, attentive to every detail - tissues when needed, warming up our meals until we were ready to sit down to eat them, setting up every last detail to our explicit specifications and packing everything expertly. He was the consummate wedding consultant, in control at all times. We could have never done it without him. I would never trust a large event to anyone but Brian, he was certainly head and shoulders above the rest. The event went perfectly, WE even got thank you notes from our guests !

Totally ruined my daughters wedding.We were blasted by the sound system from wedding in the garden next to us.This was after we were promised that no two ceremonies would take place at the same time. Their ceremony was held up for at least 45 min as we were unable to hear their JP over the noise from the garden next door.They were unable to get photos with the sunset that Anthony"s likes to hype as it was dark by the time the ceremony was over.Our Guests were in the dark for cocktail hour as some of their lighting was out . Guy's with ladders came out to fix the lights after our guests gave up and went in the building. We paid for 5 hours open bar,yet guests were unable to get drinks because no staff present at the bar till dinner which wasn't served until 10pm . Food okay at best.

Very big attitude for such a mediocre wedding-mill. If they're going to book multiple events at the same time, they should at least manage it better.

Even though Anthony's advertises that you can have your wedding and pictures on the beach, it is illegal for him to do so as it is a public beach. Therefore your festivities can be disrupted at any time by dogs, volleyball games, boomboxes, etc, and any and all of the stuff that goes on at a public beach during nice weather. There's nothing you can do about it and I understand that if the neighbors just happen to decide to start up a game when you're out there trying to get the pictures of your life before the sun sets, well I hope you like a little background local color. As long as you're aware of this possibility then you won't be disappointed with the pictures (unless it rains!)
Other than that, all the food tastes like sawdust to me
