Thank you for everything you did yesterday.  It was a perfect wedding!  We could not be any happier with the attention to detail the whole team gave to the wedding and it went off without a hitch.  If anything happened behind the scenes,  we weren’t aware of it, and that shows what a good job you all did!

Thanks again,

Ben and I would like to send you and the rest of The Brookside crew a huge thank you!! Our wedding was absolutely amazing.  It was everything we had been dreaming of and more.

You made the event so easy and fun for us and set all of my worries at ease!! Thank you for being so wonderful for not making a big deal about us having no alcohol at the wedding too.  That really meant so much to us.

I would recommend that anyone work with The Brookside Club because you are all so professional and easy to deal with.  We will never forget you. Thank you for answering our late-night phone calls and for the pump-up speech before walking the aisle!

All our love,

Ben and Ashley Hamel

**Ashley’s online review! ***
I just had my August 3 wedding at the Brookside Club in Bourne and it was absolutely wonderful! It was the first venue that I saw, and immediately I fell in love! I worked mostly with Andy and there are not enough great things that I can say about him and the rest of the team. Everyone was so nice and professional but they still managed to keep a very fun atmosphere for us. I was SO nervous on the day of the wedding, but Andy was able to completely put me at ease. Kim approached me a few times during the reception to make sure that everything was going well and to check to see if there was anything she could do to make our night better. In all honesty, NOTHING could have been improved. I loved the venue, but most of all I loved working with Andy, Kim, and Frank. Our day was flawless because of this team! I would recommend that anyone who is searching for that perfect venue condsider the Brookside Club! They are all so wonderful!

Hi, Frank and Andrew,

I just want to say thank you for helping us with the post funeral lunch at Sunset Grille yesterday.  It was a beautiful day, and we had 19 people join us after the interment ceremony at the National Cemetery.  Andrew greeted us when we arrived, and was ready for us.  The wait staff did an excellent job pouring wine, and helping us to make selections and the kitchen did a fabulous job with our choices.  Everyone had an amazing meal, and a lot of fun. It was lovely to be able to wind down after the funeral.  The staff were respectful and offered their condolences, while making us very comfortable and insuring that our needs were met.

Thank you so much for making our lunch such a lovely experience for all of us.  I know that many of us who live in the area will be coming back to Brookside soon.  You all did a wonderful job and we appreciate it.

Our best regards,
Kate & Tom

I just wanted to send an email out thanking you for all of your help making my wedding day amazing!  All of the guests had a wonderful time and everything turned out even better than I had imagined.  The food was so delicious—I received so many comments about how well the tenderloin was cooked—“just melted in your mouth!” and how well organized the reception went - bringing out hors d’oeuvres to the wedding party while we took photos.  The golf course was the perfect backdrop for wedding photos and the sunset we had was just breathtaking! 

Thank you for all of your help, you assisted in making our wedding both memorable and stress free!

Kindest thanks,

When I think about that night I just smile because when I looked around everyone was so happy. The family was so impressed, especially Robby’s grandmother. She loved the food and your delicious white sauce!! Compliments are still coming in. You and your staff did a wonderful job.  Robby and I, and the entire family were just sad the night had to end.  I hope that in the very near future I will be calling you again for another family celebration.

Wishing you a very successful season.

So sorry this email is a long time coming. We have been so busy since we got home from Mexico. We would like to thank you so much for all your help and making our day ever so wonderful. Everyone is still talking about what a amazing place The Brookside is and the food was spectacular. We had a wonderful and stress free wedding and we owe a great deal of thanks to you both. Considering it was a little stressful due to the huge amount of construction traffic, thank you for being ever so patient with the guests and DJ. We look forward to coming back on our one year anniversary.

Hi Melissa! 
 
I want to thank you so very much for making our wedding on 10-10-10, such a wonderful memory!! You did such a wonderful job making sure all the details were in place. Your waitstaff and bartender are to be commended on the excellent job they all did. They were all very polite and made sure that everything went smoothly.

Hats off to the chef and the kitchen staff as well. The appetizers were fabulous and the meals were out of this world!! So many of our guests commented on how wonderful their food was. Everything was cooked hot, to perfection and so delicious! A few of our friends didn’t even know that The Brookside existed and a few have been back for dinner at The Sunset Grille, and were extremely happy that they did! What a hidden GEM!!

I can’t thank you enough, Melissa, for all your help with the planning of such a special day. You were available at anytime that I needed and I so appreciate your professionalism, courtesy and thoughtfulness. You have a very difficult job which demands so much of your time and you always did so with your warm, caring smile. You are one in a million and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you did to make our special day, just that! Thank you too for ordering that gorgeous sunset!! It was amazing!!

Looking forward to seeing you again!

Much love,

We had our wedding at The Brookside Club in Bourne, MA and it was amazing.  We were concerned about the weather because it was a misty day, but it worked out fine.  The view was beautiful.  We received many compliments on the place. The food was fabulous. My family and I have made comments about how we have found a new spot to go and have dinner. Frank and Melissa were extremely helpful and made our day stress free.  Everything was wonderful.  We could not have asked for anything more.

Where do we begin? It would be impossible to thank you both enough for our amazing wedding at The Brookside Club. Of course, the facility itself is beautiful. But the care, patience and attention to detail of you and your entire staff are what make a wedding at Brookside an event to remember. Our guests are still praising the food, ambiance, views and hospitality. You were both such a pleasure to work with throughout our planning experience. Thank you for all of the compromises when I got an idea stuck in my head, and for surprising my new husband with a much appreciated cheeseburger for dinner! We hope loved ones in the future will be lucky and wise enough to host their weddings at The Brookside Club, so we can once again enjoy its elegant charm.

Sincerely,
Kristen and Aaron Smith

Hi Frank and Melissa,

I want to thank you both for just a beautiful wedding. Everyone I’ve talked with had such a wonderful time. The food was delicious. It was such a gorgeous night and everything looked beautiful. Many people were complimenting us on the setting, and the view was magnificent. We were so lucky to have mother nature shine on Kellie and Mark. Kellie and Mark were so happy and their table location was perfect. I will recommend you to anyone who is ever getting married on the Cape.

Once again, thanks,
Joanne Miller

Dear Frank and Melissa,

THANK YOU SO MUCH!! Everything was perfect for our daughter’s wedding this past September 5th. My husband has DJ’ed and I have videotaped thousands of weddings all over New England in the last 25 years, and Kristen & Aaron’s wedding was the best ever!! Of course it helped that the weather was perfect and the sunset breath-taking, but it was so much more than that…Working with both of you and your entire staff was a pleasure.  Everyone was friendly, helpful and professional, the food was excellent, and the room and grounds looked absolutely beautiful! Your kindness to our professional vendors, who are also our friends, was most appreciated. This was the first wedding in both families, and very special for us to be the parents of the bride. I will never forget how pretty the ceremony was-and the view! I have been meaning to write for weeks now but have had trouble coming up with the right words to describe how great everything was without sounding ridiculous! I’m sure Kristen will be thanking you herself, as she did most of the planning, but I really wanted to thank you and your entire staff on behalf of Ron and myself for making it so special.

Sincerely,

Dear Frank,

“Absolutley perfect” would be the words we’d use to describe our daughter’s wedding at The Brookside Club! If anyone is looking for ‘quintessential” Cape Cod, with wonderful service and food, along with a casual, yet elegant atmosphere, and last but not least, spectacular views, this is the location. You fulfilled absolutely every promise and your attention to detail was remarkable. We asked for three different favors to be placed in very particular locations, and it was done to perfection. (Nice job, Melissa!) From the moment we walked in, we were greeted by you personally and offered drinks and a platter of goodies. Our guests equally relayed the friendliness of your staff and how well prepared they were when over 100 people descended upon them. We send our sincere thanks to you and to your staff for all your fine work and for making our special event so memorable.

Best wishes,
Diane Scott

Dear Frank and Melissa,

Our wedding last Saturday evening was a most blessed event. EVERYTHING worked beautifully. Compliments were abundant about the wedding site, the food, service and the details. We would recommend The Brookside Club and your expertise to anyone planning a Cape Cod event. You both were a pleasure to work with and we, as the parents, can’t thank you enough for all you did to make Jen and Ryan’s wedding day so memorable. We send our heartfelt thanks to you both and to your staff who made this day!

Yours truly,

Dear Melissa, Frank and the rest of The Brookside Club staff,

We can’t thank you enough for making our day so perfect! You helped make sure that the best day of our lives was wonderful in every way. Frank, meeting with you before our wedding was always a pleasure. Your attention to detail and relaxed approach made the planning so easy and enjoyable. Melissa, you were truly a bride’s best friend on the big day and during the rehearsal. You took care of all the little things (and big things) still on my mind that day and helped keep me relaxed and calm. The whole staff took such great care of us and all of our guests. Everyone was so friendly and accommodating. You all made our wedding just perfect! Many of our guests have said that this was one of the best weddings they have ever been to and we couldn’t agree more. Thanks again!

Sincerely,

How can we ever thank you and your staff enough for such a wonderful evening. Melissa and your entire staff were great! Having the buffet out on the deck was great, and the compliments on the food were nonstop. Everyone had such a nice time, they hated to see the night end. I look forward to working with you again in December!

Dear Mr. Falcone,

This note is to thank you so very much for the “perfect luncheon” in honor of Ruth Clegg’s 100th birthday. I liked your thoroughness of detail in every part of the celebration from beginning to end. The location was wonderful (in front of the fireplace)-23 delicious luncheons were served. Our waitress was so good and pleasant that I was amazed that she was able to handle that many people so well. Thank you for making this a happy, happy birthday! Even the photographer came and took many pictures, one of which appeared in The Bourne Enterprise the following Friday. You have a 5 Star restaurant at The Brookside Club!

Sincerely,

Hi Frank,

Sorry that it has taken me a month to get this to you, but better late than never. I just wanted to say thank you so very much for everything you and your staff did for our wedding. Ryan and I could not have asked for better service. When we first began looking at reception places, the Brookside Club stood out because of its unbelievable service and attention to detail. On June 27th, even though a not so sunny day, you made everything wonderful. The food was amazing and the setting spectacular! All of our friends and families commented on everything and how wonderful the Brookside Club was. They kept telling us that it was the perfect place to enjoy the Cape and good friends. We are so happy that we chose the Brookside Club to celebrate our very special day! Thank you so much again. Please make sure to thank Melissa for keeping me calm. Enjoy the summer and I am sure that we will be back for lunch, brunch, and dinner.

Thank you again,
Caitlin and Ryan MacDonald,

Dear Mr. Falcone,

My family and I would like to thank you for the exemplary service provided by you and all the staff at The Brookside Club during all phases of our wedding. Weddings are extremely stressful, but with your help, it was planned efficiently and helped relieve us of many stressful tasks. At no time did we feel pressured or hurried and I have received many compliments from friends and family on how courteous your staff was. My vendors also commented on how accommodating the club was to their needs. We really appreciate all your hard work. Thank you again.

The Brookside Club Management,

I would like to thank you for the terrific service on 04/25/08 at the Bastoni/Holland wedding reception. I work at many venues every week and always point out true excellence. Your staff was incredible at taking care of the clients’ needs. I wanted to point out in particular Frank & Melissa who were extremely helpful. Your bartender and waitstaff should also be recognized as being very professional. It is always our goal to work at venues such as yours where the goal is your clients’ complete satisfaction. This could not have been more evident than at your facility.

Thank you and I hope to work with you again in the future.

Frank,

We are the parents of Daniel Geagan who was married on November 3, 2007 to Elizabeth Argent-Belcher with the wedding reception held at your facility. It was a memorable day as you may recall. Near hurricane winds caused widespread power outages. In spite of this ‘minor’ inconvenience, you and your staff performed to perfection, providing fine food enhanced by candlelight. Your foresight in utilizing the generator capabilities available to you ensured the occasion was a pleasurable and special event despite nature’s intrusion.

Sincerely,
Dr. Thomas and Barbara Geagan

Frank,

I just wanted to say thank you again for making our wedding the perfect day! It was so nice to not have to worry about ANYTHING! There wasn’t one thing you weren’t all over, making sure it was happening and happening right! Over the last year, so many people heard me talk about “My Frank”, I think they were beginning to wonder….Thank you also for being so great to my mom! She never stopped talking about the great customer service you provided! Please be assured, I will continue to recommend The Brookside Club to anyone who is looking for a beautiful place to have an event. Even more importantly, a place where you are treated as if you are the only event they have all year!

Thanks again for everything!

Frank,

Joe & I wanted to thank you, Sean and all of your staff for making our wedding day and planning experience so enjoyable. We have received so many compliments about our wedding and the beautiful setting The Brookside Club provided for us. Some have even told us it was the “most beautiful wedding they have ever been to” and I know much of that was to do with the scenic ceremony site, deck with the amazing sunset views and tastefully decorated Atlantic room. We were so thankful to have such a beautiful day to take advantage of the incredible view from the upper deck. The sunset was just spectacular that night and we also enjoyed some unexpected fireworks over Buzzards Bay. We even had some guests that went back the next day to show other family members how beautiful the club and grounds are. We have received numerous e-mails on how tremendous the food was and how many people really enjoyed the stations style dinner. I know for many weddings guests don’t often comment on the food as it is secondary to the event, however, we received so much feedback on how great the food and appetizers were (especially the carving station). We want to thank Sean for spending so much time with us when we were making our decision on the reception site. He always made time for us when we would stop in and he answered our endless questions without us ever feeling rushed. We probably visited The Brookside Club more than any couple and took every opportunity to have lunch, dinner, and Easter brunch there to get a flavor for what our wedding day may be like. We also want to thank you, Frank, for responding to my (what got to be daily) e-mails in order to help work through the endless details. You made our wedding planning with The Brookside Club truly enjoyable and we will miss working with you and of course “stalking” the club every few weeks. We only wish our day had gone by slower so we could have fully taken in the whole experience. I am sure you will see us back at The Brookside Club when we visit Cape Cod and I know it will become a new favorite for many of our guests.

Thank you again, Frank, for all of your help and for making our wedding so memorable.

Dear Mr. Falcone,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for the service and attention that we received on March 15, 2007, during a small luncheon held after my father’s funeral.  I was born in Taunton and frequently visit the Cape, but was unfamiliar with your restaurant. It was recommended that I try to arrange for a small luncheon after the burial services at Otis Air Force base. I stopped in one day as the golf course and restaurant were just closing. Your staff took the time to drop everything and help me to make arrangements. On the day of the funeral, we arrived and were greeted at the front door, shown directly to the room which was beautiful, and subsequently had all our needs met. You and Mack made sure that the food was served and the bar was taken care of without any follow-up from me. We were never rushed, the food was outstanding, and everyone treated us with respect and kindness.  It was a perfect ending to a rather hectic and emotional day. Again, I want to express my appreciation to your entire staff but especially to you and Mack who made the extra effort to see that everything went smoothly. I plan to stop by the next time we are visiting to enjoy your restaurant and try out the golf course. My Aunt, who lives in Wings Neck, was very impressed and plans to tell all her friends about the outstanding service we received at The Brookside Club.

My sincerest thanks,
Jeffrey W. Maynard

Dear Frank,

As we recall the events of 2006, our daughter Amanda’s wedding at the Brookside Club on July 29th was certainly the highlight of the year for us. The wedding was wonderful from the casual elegance of the beautiful setting to the excellent service and delicious food. Throughout the event, Sean and your staff were gracious, professional, and efficient. Our guests had a great time and continue to share with us many compliments regarding the fine food and polished service of the Brookside Club staff. If you wish, we would be pleased to serve as a reference to any couple considering the Brookside Club for their wedding. Thank you to Sean, your wonderful chef, the rest of your staff, and you for helping us create such a memorable wedding day for Amanda and Kevin.

Sincerely,
Charles and Sherry Tibbetts

We are still getting rave reviews from all our family and friends about how beautiful The Brookside Club was and what great service your staff provided.
