Wedding Reception of Our Dreams

My husband and I were married in early October of 2013, at Mombo. From the moment we stepped in for our initial visit with Tom Perron, the General Manager, we were enchanted. It was everything we were looking for for our perfect wedding: New England charm, amazing food, in the heart of downtown Portsmouth. And the cheerful and helpful employees were just the cherry on top.

We worked with Casey Syvertsen, the Special Events Manager, to plan all the details from timing to centerpieces to menu. She was absolutely AMAZING. She was so willing and pleasant that we felt like we were working with an old friend. She even answered all of my (numerous) e-mails that were full of detailed questions and nit-picky timeline options. And she answered them quickly and thoroughly.

The reception went off without a hitch (pun intended) and the staff was wonderful. The space was perfect for our group and everyone mingled and danced the night away. The centerpieces and other details were set up perfectly, and we were so in awe as we walked around and saw how everything came together. They made it so easy for us to relax and just know that we were in good hands.

The food was a hot topic of the evening. We were told that it was the best food anyone had ever had at a wedding! Five stars; Two-thumbs up! My husband and I made sure to have time to sit down and eat the wonderful meal. And we couldn’t believe how many options we were given and the level of creativity. From macaroni and cheese spoons and crab wontons, to duck confit risotto and asiago mashed potatoes, to horseradish crusted prime rib and cheddar-prosciutto chicken…All we kept saying was, “Yum!” They even packed a to-go bag for us to enjoy back at the hotel!

All in all, our wedding really was our dream wedding. It was exactly what we wanted and Mombo made it all happen without a worry. Their prices were competitive and there was a ton of unexpected value. A big thank you to Tom and Casey and the rest of the wonderful, smiling staff. We look forward to seeing you again soon when we stop by for dinner!
