Ron and the Christy were fantastic to work with from the beginning. We met with several different reception vendors and many were very pushy and it didn't feel like we were anything more than income to them. Ron and The Christy were completely different. When we met with Ron the first time he was very friendly, open, provided a lot of tips and feedback, and he set us at ease. At the time we were living in South Dakota and he said he would be more than willingly to work with us to help accommodate our needs. He responded to emails in a reasonable amount of time, usually same day. My parents live out of town and he was flexible with me every time I asked if I could stop by to show people the place. Since we lived in SD we were looking for a place that required very little decoration and very little work on our end, and The Christy was just that. They already had centerpieces, table cloths, napkins, option of chair covers, chandeliers, and lights behind the head table. They also do their own catering and had their own bartenders, so that was one less thing we needed to worry about. We did decide to use a few of our own decorations and Ron and his team were more than willing to help us out with getting them set up. He offered to put the decorations out for us so that it was one less thing we needed to worry about. When we arrived for our wedding reception, Ron was wonderful. He came out to greet us and to talk to us about how the night would start off as far as meals, clearing the buffet, etc. It was such a relief to get to the reception and know that he had everything under control and that we didn't need to worry about a thing. The night was so stress-free for us. The food was delicious! Everyone complimented it that night and weeks after our wedding as well. Ron made sure to check in with us a couple of times throughout the night to make sure we didn't need anything. At the end of the night, we never felt rushed or like we were being kicked out. The Christy boxed up all the buffet food that wasn't eaten and the cake for us so that we could take it home. I highly recommend The Christy in O'Fallon to everyone. They were such a great, kind, and sincere staff to work with. They made it so we were able to enjoy our reception without any worries.
