"Sherri was the best ever. We had gone to a couple of venues but we were having a smaller, intimate wedding. As soon as we met, Sherri and I hit it off. She helped us vision a small, intimate wedding but also very elegant. She had me describe exactly what I pictured and as a result, we discussed everything from the menu to the decor and the outside grounds, and she promised to make it happen. I could not have done this planning without her. She listens and knows what is needed to get done and makes sure she communicates with the bride and groom. Sherri went out of her way to make sure my wedding went off without a hitch. She helped my now husband plan a surprise for me - a horse drawn carriage, and I never found out about it. I would recommend Sherri and Lafrance Hospitality with 100% confidence." - Elizabeth
"My husband and I had our ceremony, reception, and our rehearsal dinner at Rachel's. From the first moment we met with the head coordinator, Sherri, we knew we made the right decision. Both her and the other coordinator, Stephanie were SO unbelievable from start to finish. From any little question we had to every single detail, they made sure everything was absolutely perfect for us! What really impressed us most of all, we mainly dealt with Sherri, and she wasn't working the day of the event, Stephanie was which was absolutely perfect! But Sherri came in on her day off, to set up our candy station for us and that really impressed us, absoluitely top-notch service at Rachel's and would highly recommend them to absolutely anyone!!!!! Thank You Sherri and Stephanie!!!!!"
"Simply elegant, simply affordable."

"We had our wedding reception at Rachel's in September. We had 190 guests in the Bellagio Room. The staff was fabulous. Sherri our coordinator took care of all our planning questions! Stephanie was great and made sure everything was perfect during the reception. We had perfect weather and were able to take advantage of the outdoor deck. It was nice to be able to get some air after lots of dancing!"
