“Holding our wedding ceremony and reception at Tom Ham’s was a dream come true. The venue is incredible, the views are top notch and the staff of Brooke and Perla make planning a wedding seem so manageable and easy. Brooke and Perla both were very responsive over email and phone, their software used for Event Planning made everything crystal clear and upfront. I would recommend Tom Ham’s to all the brides out there.”
