What are people saying about the Needham Estate?

  • “Drew and Sandy,
    Before the afterglow of an unbelievably memorable celebration fades and before I get sucked back into the routine of my life I want to thank you formally for sharing your beautiful house and yard with me and all my friends.  It was the perfect backdrop for the experience I had hoped for.  I must say, despite all the drama on the eve of the event it all came together flawlessly.  Claudine Cermak is a real pro and a wonderful person with a huge heart.  We stressed about the weather in this our rainy season but the gods smiled on us.  Daisy might have complained about the heat, but I thought it fit the occasion for a tropical fiesta.  I have been enjoying all the wonderful pictures being shared on Facebook.  I can’t wait for the professional shots.  Joe McBroom will be sending me a link for the dropbox which I will gladly share with you.
    I do hope our paths cross again soon but in the meantime know that you played a major role in helping me make my birthday fantasy a reality.
    Thank you, thank you, thank you.
  • Wow!  What a Holiday Party!  I have received so many emails this morning with people raving about the party at your house!  I appreciate your hospitality and working with me to make our party happen!  I personally am very grateful to have met such a great couple! ~ KS, STONEGATE BANK

  • “Every detail was accounted for and our wedding was beautiful! We could not be happier with how our guests oggled at how professional and lovely our wedding and reception were handled!”
