As Sarah found out, Trish, the owner (or should I say ex-owner) of The Pearl (our wedding venue in KDH) has opened a new restaurant in Naples, FL called L'Etoile.
I just received an email from my florist this morning saying that the "Pearl has gone under new management and they are doing major renovations." So, since I have been calling/trying to get a hold of Trish for - oh, I dunno - 3 freaking months now, I decided to give the Sea Ranch a call since they own the property.
Lo and behold, The Pearl (Trish) decided not to renew her lease, and now the restaurant area has been bought out by the hotel. They are going to try to "honor the prices" agreed upon by the pearl - but GUESS WHAT?! TRISH STILL HAS MY MONEY!! And... even better than that... when I called her new place in FL trying to get a hold of her, she was there but miraculously "Stepped out for a moment" when she found out who was trying to get a hold of her.
Anyways, she'd better give me back my $1000 deposit, because I can tell you - the wrath of Anna is NOT pretty. How unprofessional can you possibly be? Do you want to MAYBE call your brides who are paying you thousands of dollars of their own money and let them know that you're closing your restaurant?!?!
Regardless, the Sea Ranch said they will call me back by Friday since they're trying to get everything sorted out, and that they're holding my date - but I'm seriously worried here. Are there ANY other brides on here going through the same problem right now?
