“I was married in October 2015 at the Ballard Bay Club, and it could not have been more perfect! We had a fairly tight budget, and I thought there was no way we'd be able to afford a water front property, so we were over the moon when we found the Ballard Bay Club. It's located right on Puget Sound.... we booked the north room, which has floor-to-ceiling windows with a absolutely gorgeous view of the sound. The room was the perfect size for our wedding (75 guests). We used the single room for both the ceremony and the reception. The room had a section by the windows where we had the ceremony, and was later turned into the dance floor, and a raised platform separated by a low wall where all the tables were set up for dinner. The staff was amazing to work with! We met with them a couple of times to go over what we wanted, and on the day of the wedding everything went so smoothly I didn't have to worry about anything! They handled set up and tear down of the tables, chairs, etc. and provided everything, including linens, dishes, glassware, etc. as well as the bartenders and servers! Since Jewel Hospitality provides the catering as well as the venue, there was no coordination required, and they went above and beyond - including sending out a server with appetizers during the pictures to make sure we got some. The only "mistake" was that the chef accidentally made an additional entree that we hadn't ordered, so they put it out on the buffet anyway for free. Also, the food was AMAZING. I have been to a lot of weddings where the food (especially buffet food) is mediocre or just plain terrible, but everything was excellent. I would definitely recommend!”
“My wife and I were married at The Canal in Ballard this summer. We signed a contract with Jewel about 1.5 years before the event. Their contract was thorough and concise. We did plenty of research beforehand to make sure we were covered - whether through Jewel or by our other vendors. The staff was responsive to our questions - they would usually take a couple days to respond, but I'm sure they are also responding to several other couples including couples with a closer wedding date. The staff at The Canal and Jewel Hospitality could not have made our wedding more memorable or more enjoyable the day of the event. The service was fantastic from start to finish. Very professional staff and open and honest when asked questions. All of our guests raved about the food and venue. Most people had second or third helpings.”
“I recently had my wedding at the Canal and had an amazing experience! The venue itself is right on the water, and has a stunning interior! Marcia, Liz and all the staff at the wedding were absolutely amazing to work with and had a HUGE part in making my day as special as possible!
When I started the whole wedding planning process, I was very nervous. There just seem to be so many details to think about! Thank god for Liz and Marcia! They truly are experts at what they do, and had wonderful suggestions that addressed all of my concerns, down to the smallest detail. They even had a preferred vendor list, and I ended up selecting all my vendors from that list. I did my own research too, but in the end, all of my final choices were the vendors that Jewel Hospitality recommended. They clearly did a lot of research to make sure that I was well taken care of!
The day of the wedding was so much more than I expected! The staff there were so attentive to us, one of them even brought our specialty drinks to me and my husband right after we signed our marriage certificate so we could enjoy a celebratory drink right away! They also brought a tray of appetizers directly to me so I was able to eat before getting caught up talking to all my guests. How thoughtful is that?!
And I cannot say enough about the food! I've been to lots of weddings in the past, and I've just come to expect that the food served to large parties isn't going to be that great. BUT IT WAS AMAZING! We had lots of guests tell us they went for seconds and even thirds and just raved about how good the food was. And even though lots of people were going back for more, the buffet never ran out of food!
I had a great experience with Jewel and would high recommend using them for not only their customer service, but also because of the amazing food and wait staff!”
“I've had the Jewel experience as a bride, a maid of honor, and an event guest (several times over) and each experiences has been special thanks to the team at Jewel. Marcia and Cybal are gems on the back end and Paula was the best banquet captain (at our wedding) ever! I will definitely be going back to Jewel with my event needs.
I've noticed that a lot of the reviews on this page refer to Jewel's former event manager, Liz, but I can assure you that their newest hire, Nicole, is amazing! So friendly, responsive, and easy to talk to.”
“I booked the Canal for my March wedding and ceremony. Jewel Hospitality handled the catering, bartending, and cake for us. The whole experience was seamless. The food and cake were delicious. The bartender was excellent and all of the staff were friendly and totally on top of things.
Communication leading up to the event was clear and we received timely responses to emails. During the event, everything went smoothly and, other than receiving warm congratulations from the staff, we were hardly aware anything happening behind the scenes because it all went so smoothly. It was wonderful to know that the Canal had us covered so that we could just enjoy our wedding day!”
