The following is a narration of the “We Can do That” service your guests will receive as they flow through the designed guest experience for a wedding at Morgan Creek Golf Course.
As the guests enter the driveway, they will see the polished brass sign indicating that everyone is welcome; this sets the tone for the remainder of their visit. The colorful flowers and foliage that line the driveway and gardens all make an impact as guests arrive. Since the signage is very clear, guests will know immediately where to park. As they walk up to the clubhouse entrance, they will notice the beautifully manicured, enclosed private wedding garden. Professionally dressed and with a visible name tag, the on-site wedding liaison, is calm and quick to direct the guests to the garden or banquet room. Always smiling and friendly, the wedding liaison is often the first team member that the guests encounter, and her presence will be felt throughout the evening. She is ready to lend a hand, but her presence is never intrusive, always one step ahead and able to anticipate any of the guests needs. Once inside the clubhouse, the guests will be impressed with the fabulous view of the surrounding mountains and the natural stone and timber of the clubhouse construction.
If attending a ceremony, guests will enjoy the natural surroundings and the impeccable stonework that make up the wedding garden. They will find details in their surroundings, the flower beds that have been meticulously maintained, the smell of freshly cut grass, the clean white padded garden chairs placed precisely along the paved aisle that the couple will soon walk down. Through the hum of excited chatter, background music softly plays, and the wedding liaison can be seen making final confirmations of timing with the DJ and officiant. The appearance of the officiant at the front of the garden signals the start of the ceremony and the wedding liaison signals for the DJ to start the first song. The ceremony has begun.
Following the completion of the ceremony guests will be welcomed to enter the ballroom where they are greeted with background music softly playing. The banquet servers are all professionally dressed in black pants and shoes, black dress shirt, with a necktie and visible nametag. Guests are approached by servers carrying trays, who invite them to try one of the passed canapés that the couple has carefully selected for them. Candle light is glowing, and the impressive stone fireplace creates a focal point within the ballroom. Guests approach the bar, where a friendly, knowledgeable bartender is ready to prepare the beverage of their choice. The view from the patio is spectacular and each guest will marvel at how picturesque the area is. The patio is clean and tidy, and the tables are covered in a white linen tablecloth with patio chairs inviting you to take a seat.
As the room begins to fill with guests, the presence of the wedding liaison can be felt as she quietly confirms the evenings plans with the Master of Ceremonies and the DJ. Each place setting has a tall cool glass of ice water. Soon it will be time for the couple’s grand entrance, guests have been asked to their seats by the master of ceremonies, as the happy couple waits behind closed doors for the liaisons que to enter. As the liaison and banquet supervisor open the doors, the couple is met with welcome cheers and a song to bring them into the ballroom. The evenings events have only just begun.
Once the couple have taken their seats at the head table and the Master of Ceremonies has had a chance to explain the house rules, guests will be invited to experience firsthand what Morgan Creek is famous for…. the food! Our celebrated chef and his talented team of professionals have created a lavish and mouthwatering buffet that cannot be rivaled anywhere in the lower mainland. The quality and presentation of the dinner buffet is astonishing, and the guests will be overwhelmed at the sheer size of the display. The elegant table décor adds to the overall impression of abundance, freshness and quality.
The wedding liaison will escort the couple and the bridal party to the buffet line where she will then assist the bride with her plate, to avoid any spillage that may occur. While the bridal party is selecting their dinner, guests will be offered one of the outstanding wines that have been specially chosen to complement the meal. Their server engages the guests in polite conversation while they await their turn to the buffet. Guests will notice the ease and efficiency in which they are invited to the buffet by a member of the banquet team; this team member will take a moment to explain that the dinner buffet is labeled and double sided. If they have any questions, the attending chefs are ready to answer any questions the guests may have. The bride and groom will be amazed at all the small details, and the BIG impression they make.
As the bridal party returns to the head table with the wedding liaison, the banquet supervisor will be there to offer wine. The supervisor will continue to serve the head table and be available to assist with any other needs the wedding party may have. This leaves the wedding liaison free to discuss the remainder of the evening’s events with the master of ceremonies and allows the couple to remain uninterrupted while they enjoy their meal. The remainder of their dinner proves to be very relaxing and enjoyable. All the servers have been trained with great care, and their polished appearance as well as their knowledge of correct serving and clearing techniques, all combine to provide an outstanding experience. Exceptional food, fabulous views and excellent service all result in a banquet experience that is second to none.
With an exquisite assortment, the dessert buffet is the perfect ending to the dinner itself. Freshly brewed coffee and tea is offered with a smile, and as the lights are dimmed the mood is further enhanced by the music and candlelight. Guests realize how romantic the setting truly is; they are relaxed, happy and have just enjoyed one of the most memorable wedding receptions ever.
As guests finish their desserts and sip on their coffee, they will be able to enjoy memorable speeches and watch as the couple shares their first dance together as newlyweds. They will shed a small tear as the bride dances with her father and groom with his mother. They will then be invited to the dance floor themselves to join the couple in celebration. Not too long after, the guests will catch the scent of something delicious, they will soon learn that the couple has arranged for a late-night snack for them to enjoy. Guests are welcome to enjoy the late-night snack and to refresh their drink at the bar before heading back to the dance floor to dance the night away.
As the guests begin to depart, they once again see the banquet team helping the family members, checking to make sure all the gifts have been packed up. The security and safety of the guests is paramount, and they will appreciate the well-lit parking lot and the presence of the Morgan Creek security staff. As they drive away, they will reflect on the nights events and reminisce about all the fun they had, the meal the enjoyed and the exceptional service they received from the staff at Morgan Creek.
