“ We just had to formally let you know how much Providence UCC appreciates everything that you did to help us celebrate our 160th Church Anniversary and the 19th for our Past, Rev.

We know exactly who to contact if we have an important event to sponsor. Please feel free to use us as a reference as we will certainly inform our friends and community organizations about your cooperation, skills and talent. Again, Thank You and May GOD continue to bless you!”

“ My daughters wedding reception at The Royal Courtyard was absolutely amazing all of our guest were astonished with how beautiful the venue was and the staff was totally professional and courteous, but I must say that from the very beginning I knew this place was different they cared about the details that were important to my daughter and that meant everything to me . We chose to cater in house and they met our expectation the food was especially important since we are Hispanic our typical dishes were essential to the reception and they absolutely understood what we wanted . Our reception was so good we decided to extend for an additional hour. Thank you soooo much Royal Courtyard for the most beautiful experience ever. A special thanks to Ms. Sharon & Mr. Noel and to the wonderful staff it would not have been as it turned out without you!”

“ Planned a 65th surprise birthday party for my husband. Since my son and his wife had their wedding reception at The Royal Courtyard and it was so fabulous, I decided to try to have the party there. Well, I did and it was great. Venue was very clean and appealing. Hope to have more events there in the future. Many thanks to the whole Royal Courtyard team.”
- Sonni Benn
“ As a special event coordinator myself, I can tell you without hesitation working with the Royal Courtyard and the staff, Sharon, was a wonderful experience. They are professional, organized, responsive and a pleasure to work with. Eliminate the stress of any occasion, the staff helped with everything from food to decorations to entertainment. The Royal courtyard offers two different sized event spaces, we utilized the large ballroom. There were about 100 people in attendance, the room setup had a stage, dance floor, buffet tables and seating for all guests and there was easily room for another 200 guests, however with the artful setup the space still felt welcoming and intimate. The decorations were beautiful, the food was good and event flowed easily. I highly recommend The Royal Courtyard, we already have plans to use the venue again this year.”
- Lisa Chacon
“ My husband and I was planning our wedding and reception for over a year and a half. When we say everything was superb, we mean everything! We must give our kudos to Noel and Sharon! They helped in every way they possible could even down to the last few weeks when I(the bride) started stressing a little over our guest count. They understood what we wanted and how we wanted everything for our reception. We encourage anyone who is looking for a nice venue for any occasion no matter the size we definitely would recommend The Royal Courtyard!! Everything is very reasonable down from the catering menu and the wedding package which is a plus! If you go anywhere else you will pay for every little thing! So again thank you thank you thank you Noel and Sharon for Everything!!!!!!!! Mr. and Mrs. Johnson 7.12.14”

A Hidden Jewel!
“ The Royal Courtyard is a breathtaking venue with superb service that went beyond my expectations.\r\n\r\nWe selected the Royal Courtyard to celebrate my wife\'s 40th birthday in a murder mystery 1920s style. The venue was indisputably the best choice with an excellent layout. For instance, The staff made the essential arrangements to turn a large salon into an intimate yet most elegant set up. Furthermore, both the service and attention to detail were phenomenal and truly evident of Management high-end venue vision and style.”

From planning my reception, to the actual day, they made it pleasant, beautiful, and stress free. I love the fact that they accommodated my husband and I and treated us like they cared and not like we were just a number. Management was very professional, and his staff are so sweet.

Stevenson Wedding 9-20-14
“ There are not enough good things I can say about The Royal Courtyard. From day one Sharon has been awesome. She took time out to sit down go over everything and show us the rooms and ideas. I dont live in VA Beach, so we had to make several trips down to the area and Noel and Sharon were always friendly, accommodating and answered all of our concerns. The day of our wedding was amazing, lots of excitement, the Royal Courtyard was the perfect place to have our reception. The food was fantastic and the room looked perfect. All of the wait staff was friendly to us and our guests. The facility is always clean and well kept up. I would recommend Noel, and Sharon and the Royal Courtyard to anyone!”
- Erin Stevenson
Most Amazing Wedding
“ We had the most amazing wedding thanks to the Royal Courtyard. Everything was beautifully done and they were able to accommodate our requests. They truly treat you like family. The ballroom was very spacious for my guests to enjoy themselves and for the set up to be exactly as I wanted. I look forward to future gatherings at Royal Courtyard. If you are looking for somewhere to have a wedding, birthday party, baby shower, etc, you would be silly not to chose this place!”
- Kristy and Andrew Gueits
FANTASTIC WEDDING VENUE!!!
“ The venue changed ownership after we originally signed the contract, but the new owner has made upgrades to the facility and was always accessible. The staff at The Royal Courtyard were wonderful to work with. We used our own centerpieces, but the staff helped with setting them up and putting out the favors and other items we dropped off the night before.”
- Robin & Kyle Wheeler
Company Holiday Party
“ Our Holiday party was fabulous. Event coordinator Sharon and Noel were very helpful in answering questions when planning the event, which made our party a total success. They were very generous and thoughtful, throughout The Royal Courtyard experience. Staff was helpful and friendly, the day of event, with setting up (Company:games, decor,etc.). The overall food was good, but the marinated beef was very delicious, Although, the planning was last minute, The Royal Courtyard covered all problems and concerns. The ballroom was very spacious and absolutely beautiful. We shall see you next year!”

BEAUTIFUL BUILDING, FRIENDLY STAFF & WONDERFUL CUSTOMER SERVICE
“ This letter is to compliment the Royal Courtyard for the wonderful work they did. The Wedding Reception on Saturday, Jan. 17, for Karlton & Karen was fantastic. Every bride and groom to be should know there is no need to look any further once they tour this venue. We can attest that it is definitely the right venue for you. it is a private venue where you do not have to share your day with other events in a building. There is plenty of parking for your guests all around the building. When allowed to set up for the event the ENTIRE staff was amazing, they helped us out even when it was not required of them. They were just as attentive to detail as we were. It was a staff member that found an issue with one of the tables that we had overlooked. With team effort, we were able to completely breakdown and refurnish the table with all of its ornaments in less than five minutes, in plenty of time before the guests arrived. The building is beautiful for all types of events. The up lighting is already there also saving you time and money. The food this past weekend was delicious, the roast beef just melted in our mouths. Again thank you Royal Courtyard for your friendly staff and wonderful customer service. We were more than pleased with your service.”
- Meme Thompson
“ When I became engaged, I selected my dream team to make sure my day would be unforgettable. I considered The Royal Courtyard, as my church had rented the venue for a function several years back. I was intrigued as to how my team could transform the ballroom to fit my needs. When I came in Sharon who was kind, attentive, and patient greeted me. I inquired about booking the ballroom for 2015. We were in December 2013. I also discovered that the venue was now under new ownership. After a series of conversations and questions, I finally signed the contract to book the venue. I was impressed by the outstanding customer service provided throughout my experience by Sharon. My communications lasted over a year and never did their outstanding customer service waiver. I had several vendors from event planners, musicians, photographers etc. and each was treated with the utmost respect by Sharon and staff. They were so accommodating throughout everyone's entire experience. After my big day, my event planners sang the praises of the venue staff during their setup and throughout my reception. As a bride I could not be around to monitor situations on my wedding day. I needed vendors I could count on to make sure my experience was the best. The staff at The Royal Courtyard did just that. My event planners relayed an incident that happened during their setup where a large centerpiece filled with water and candles cracked. They were so impressed by how the staff stepped in immediately to help them remove the flawed centerpiece so that they could re-set up the centerpiece for the table. All of this was done without asking. I cannot mention all of the extras that Sharon, and the staff did for me to make my day unforgettable. I can tell you that I will recommend The Royal Courtyard to all who inquire and even those who do not. Thanks.”

I would like to say Thank you to the staff you did a great job.”

“ My wedding day was exactly how I imagined it, thanks to The Royal Courtyard!! From the day I choose the venue, they made me feel very confident in my choice. Any questions or concerns I had up till the day of the wedding Daisy and Management, were there to answer quickly and ensured me that I wouldn't be disappointed. My husband and I can't believe the turn out, when we walked into the ballroom we felt like king and queen. The decor was above our expectations! Our guest were so amazed they couldn't even wait till after our honeymoon to call and tell us, what an amazing job they did. And the food was AMAZING!!! My photographer complimented the cook to me so many times, out of all the weddings he have serviced he said The Royal Courtyard was the BEST!!! This really made my husband & I so happy. The price was very affordable, and they had a package that was just right for me. I would like to send a special Thanks to Sharon and Noel and the rest of the Royal Courtyard team for making my day, a day I will never forget. It is still the talk of the town, thanks to you guys!! The Rouses!!!”

My Royal Birthday Party!!!
“ I recently celebrated my 50th Birthday at the Royal Courtyard and was absolutely astonished! My initial contact to use this venue was back in April where I had the pleasure of meeting Sharon and Noel, felt an instant connection and sense of trust. Ms Sharon gave me a tour of the venue and when we got to the ballroom I knew it was the perfect venue to host my birthday celebration. Upon receiving a quote for the services requested, pricing was overwhelmingly reasonable compared to other venues in the area as their services offers are no match. My event was on Friday, July 3, 2015 and nearing the end of the celebration I had one of my guest to advise me "You know you're all over Facebook". I was speechless but ecstatic at the same time as I was hoping the guest would enjoy the evening and have something to talk about. It is now a two weeks and since my celebration and I'm still getting compliments, gratitude for invites, "The food was delicious" "Their staff was very nice and friendly" That was a classy party its what I kept hearing! People keep asking me how I knew about the Royal Courtyard and that the venue was perfect for my event. The professionalism, compassion and friendliness experienced with the Royal Courtyard was amazing! Thank You for making my celebration everything I wanted it to be an more. Royal Courtyard will be HIGHLY! recommended. THANKS AGAIN FOR EVERYTHING!!! Elana Hendrieth”

My Mother-In-Laws Retirement Party!!!
“ Had my mother-in-laws retirement dinner party at The Royal Courtyard and it was gorgeous!! Everything was setup so beautiful and the staff was amazing! Management and staff made sure everything was perfect and all we had to do was show up. The dinner was delicious, we had Chicken Piccata, Marinated Beef with Herb Sauce, Mashed Potatoes and fresh Green Beans, with dinner rolls. And it was full service wait staff, which made socializing with guests so easy. The dance floor is awesome and they have a great sound system. There was also a cash bar for our guests, so everything we could ask for was provided! Definitely would use The Royal Courtyard again for my next event!!”

The Absolute Best Venue Ever
“ You WILL NOT find a better venue than the Royal Courtyard. I had my wedding and reception here on 11/07/2015. Through so many personal issues, Noel and Sharon worked with my fiancé and I to ensure that we had the best wedding day ever. They gave us the time and consideration that we needed to deal with our family issues while still trying to plan a large wedding. They were like having family helping us 🙂 On our wedding day, our family and friends could not say enough good things about this place. Our reception was the Diamond package which was AMAZING (and the absolute best price around town for such extravagance). The food was excellent, the decor was fabulous. The staff was top notch. I could not have asked for a better day! I was sad when it was over and wished we could've done it all over again! lol. I would definitely use this venue again for other functions. Side note: when I was looking for places to hold my wedding, it was daunting because I knew I was having 200+ guests and couldn't tell from other reviews if the places held 200 seated or 200 standing. I would like to say we had 200 seated with room to spare and a nice size dance floor. If you are looking for a place with space, this is the spot for you.”
- Ivory Ferreira
“ Thank you so much for the outstanding customer service. They were easy to work and communicate with.

Awesome Quinceanera (Sweet 15)
“ We had my daughter's quinceanera on the worst weather day ever, but Noel and Sharon and there wonderful staff were awesome!!! All of our guests were thrilled with the decorations and the raved about how delicious the food was. They couldn't get enough of it. The bartender was excellent also. Even though the weather didn't cooperate and all of my invited guests weren't able to make it to the party, the guests that did make it had a blast and overall the staff made our experience even more wonderful!!! It was such a relief not to have to worry about setting up stuff or decorating a hall because everything was taken care of for us. In the future we will be using The Royal Courtyard for our parties and will also highly recommend as many people as we can too!!!”

Very Nice Venue!!!
“ Very nice venue, friendly and helpful! Noel & Sharon, and his staff, was very accommodating and made a very special night for my daughter, family and friends...would highly recommend. Thanks again. Helpful?”
- Jonaliza Schoutes
“ I was not a fan of a big wedding; however, as it was important to my fiance I conceded . My search was rooted in budget and a one stop shop [too busy for too many vendors]. All the books, family, friends and online research prepped me for battle. The countless vendors I'd need, the hidden fees; I was prepared. I walked up to the first of my top three venues bated breath, sweaty and nervous. Immediately, I was warmly greeted with cheer and reassurance all would be handled. After leaving, I decided then and there that's all I needed to see. Our wedding was spectacular! We received compliments from our guests, family and even our photographers. It truly attests to the beauty and overall ambiance of the venue when a wedding photographer tells you it is "one of the most beautiful receptions they have ever photographed". The best part of the experience is the knowledge base of the staff. Sharon & Noel make it a point to truly cater to you. So much so, I returned for a family wedding two months after my own and a server stopped me and asked how were things. She went on to recount "never forgetting her brides". I truly don't remember her at all but WOW what customer service. Seldom do I do recommendations; however, when I truly feel it will change your life and experience I make it a point to do so. This review is lengthy as I truly think highly of this venue and encourage all to give them the opportunity to capture and formulate your event dreams. Eric & Sherry-Ann October 2016”

She said she didn't know the place was so beautiful and elegant. Robin and Sharon, was always nice and patient with all of my changes. And the entire staff was nice. If you are looking for a place where you want them to handle everything, this is it! Tell them your theme and they will do the rest. I will definitely be back here for my wedding. Thanks again for making my daughter's party an event to always remember.”

TWO THUMBS UP!!!
“ Two thumbs up, 5 out of 5 stars, knocked it out of the park all describe The Royal Courtyard and its staff! I had my daughter’s Mad Hatter Sweet 16 party there in March. We weren’t sure exactly what we were looking for as far as food and decorations. Sharon and Robin led us and made the planning experience seamless. We loved that they could supply everything; DJ, cake decorator, chef, bartender, etc… They did not miss any details. Everyone had the best time. The food was great and the cake was AWESOME. The DJ played to the crowd and it so worked. We recommend The Royal Courtyard to anyone we know who is planning an event. –T. Davis”

ABOVE AND BEYOND!!!
“ The staff at The Royal Courtyard is truly amazing. They went above and beyond for my special night. I gave them complete control of the decorating ideas, all I did was select the colors and the package. Mrs. Robin did her thing. Noel was right by my side the entire way providing me with his professional ideas. Mrs. Robin answered all of my calls with my crazy questions every time I called. They did not treat me like a customer at all, they treated me as family from the start and once my day came, my family was their family as well. Everything was stunning. The decorations, the lay out, the food EVERYTHING! When my guest walked into the ballroom we could hear the “Ooh and Aahh’s” It was truly amazing. Everyone was so warm and welcoming. They definitely relieved a lot of my stress. They are very professional and they definitely know how to cater to a bride. I’m forever grateful for Mrs. Robin, Noel and Chef Ron. All future events will be held at The Royal Courtyard”

Most Amazing Night!
“ My parents just had their 40th wedding anniversary party here and it was the most amazing night! My siblings and I planned this night for them and everyone from Royal Courtyard made us feel like family. This wonderful place took care of everything we needed and was always there when ever we had questions. The catering was on point and delicious, the Dj kept everybody moving, the bartender was excellent and so sweet, the photographer (Steven) was heaven sent with his patience and kindness, and Margarita was an absolute genius with the cake! The staff was fantastic! Last but never least. Noel (owner) and Robin (event coordinator) were the best! They really helped make this special night for my parents the most memorable event of their lives. Thank you so much everyone, from the bottom of all our hearts.”

AMAZING!!! TOTALLY AWESOME!!!!
“ AMAZING!!!! From the beginning to the end customer service was nothing less than Exceptional. The decorations at the venue were SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL!!!! From the time you entered the building to the exit the guest found the Royal Courtyard to be a Classy and Elegant venue. When we initially started out on our journey we was looking for a place that we could have everything in one place. A place we could have the wedding, cocktail hour, and the reception. So we didn’t lose any of our guest along the way. We shared the vision with Noel & Sharon and they reassured us that we came to the right place. Their staff would have no problem meeting our expectations. I for one did not want anyone to come in from out of town and feel like they had to do anything but enjoy them self. The Royal Courtyard delivered on every aspect and we was very pleased with the final results. Our consultation with Noel & Sharon on day one was informative and very reassuring. Any and every question we had was answered in a timely manner throughout the whole process. From the time we sat down at our consultation with Noel to the day of the wedding we found the customer service to be exceptional. Our wedding was TOTALLY AWESOME!!!! PRE-WEDDING our experience with planning the wedding was VERY reassuring and went smooth. Everything we was told happened and then some. WEDDING DAY the food was WONDERFUL chef Ron delivered as promised. We looked up and majority of our guess plates were empty. That's when we knew our decision was a good one. Hats off to Chef Ron! Mrs. Robin I would take you around the world with me if I could Your decorations was ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL and for that WE THANK YOU!!!! YOU DID YOUR THANG!!!! MANY BLESSINGS TO YOU! Our guess was VERY impressed and we are still receiving phone calls. THANK YOU FOR MAKING OUR WEDDING DAY A VERY SPECIAL AND MEMORABLE DAY!!!!”

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
“ First, of all... Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! It was such a wonderful affair! We were all happy of the turnout for my grandmother's surprise 80th birthday, especially my grandmother. She was so happy to see many friends and family that she had not seen in some time. Our family and friends were surprised on what a great venue my cousins & I chose. Most of them did not know about Royal Courtyard. My family enthused by the decor. I received many comments on the marinated beef. They were impressed by the tenderness and flavor. Thanks for suggesting the dish! The Tuscany chicken was yummy too! We all had fun and enjoyed our time there at Royal Courtyard. Everything was spectacular from the ambiance, the food, and the staff! Noel, you and your team did a marvelous job! From my family to you and the team... a standing ovation. FIVE STARS! We wish you continued success! See you all for more upcoming events! Again, thank you Noel and to the Royal Courtyard team! Sincerely, Sharon Mayor”

Thank you so much!
“ I had my 18th Birthday party here! aka Debut for Filipinos. It's a beautiful place to hold an event! The staff was very professional and very kind too! The tables were decorated so well! When you see it from the outside it seems deceiving but when you go inside you would be amazed by how elegant it looks. Most of our guests have never been here before and they were impressed. Rehearsals were only supposed to be an hour, but Noel let us rehearse for two hours. We had to practice our dances like my waltz and my special performance with my friends, practice how the 18 roses would walk and dance with me, and practice how the 18 candles would walk too. I'm very thankful for Noel for giving his time for us to rehearse all of this. We had a problem with the cake we order from a outside cake vendor because we were told it would feed 250. Noel saw the cake and knew that it wouldn't feed all our guests. The lady that we bought the cake from argued with my mom about how we didn't tell them how many people we would be feeding. (we did ask if it would fit 250 and they said yes) Noel could see how my mom was upset/mad and handled the situation with the cake lady. He offered to get a sheet cake for us! Without Noel, his wife Sharon, and the staff, I wouldn't have had such a special memory. Thank you so much!”

Kudos to the chef!!!
“ The Royal Courtyard surpass my expectations for my daughter’s Quinceanera. The staff is extremely friendly and the service is outstanding. It is evident customer service is a top priority for the staff. Noel & Sharon the venue owners, are extremely talented and share the vision of ensuring your event is just as important to them as it is for you. Furthermore, they take the time to work closely with you to ensure every detail is what you want. Sharon is by hands down incredible with decorating and full of ideas I have no doubt there is an event she cannot make beautiful. As for the food, we opted for the Latin Menu, being latin ourselves the food was amazing so much the guests were having seconds and continues to speak about the food the next day. Comments from guest were, “The food was seasoned just right and finger licking good.” Kudos to the chef!!! The bartender was by hands down one the best bartenders her personality and service was outstanding. During the party, I observed her working the bar and she was friendly, cheerful and treated every guest very well. At one point she made sure I had a drink in my hand when I walked by the bar. I now know this will be my go to place for any event planning. Thank you Royal Courtyard for making my daughter’s Quince so memorable and beautiful. Zenaida Flores”

“ The Royal Courtyard epitomizes the phrase "hidden gem". From the gorgeous venue, to the amazing food, to the staff's professional attentiveness as well as their impeccable attention to detail, it's 5 stars all the way around. We looked at a lot of venues for our daughter's quinceanera, some even in NJ where we are from, but none were comparable to the look, ambiance, and value of the Royal Courtyard. When we came in for rehearsal the night before I was literally brought to tears when I saw how perfect Sharon had made everything, it was truly more beautiful and perfect than I imagined it would be. Thank you Noel, Sharon, and staff for making my baby's big night absolutely fit for the princess that she is.”

The Food and Staff was Amazing!!!
“ I had my daughter's farewell quinceanera at this venue on July 6. It was honestly one of the most beautifully decorated events I have ever been to or seen since i have planned many other people's events. The food and staff was amazing. This venue was so beautifully decorated that I'm still getting compliments on it. It literally looked liked something out of a fairy tale book the venue was so breath taking and for an added bonus they made spanish food.

"Perfect place to have a wedding!
“ My husband and I just got married at Royal Courtyard on October 10, 2020. Everything was absolutely beautiful. The owners Noel and Sharon are so nice and they made sure our wedding day went off without a hitch and on schedule. What I love the most is you have the entire building to yourself so u you don’t have to share space with other events happening at the same time. The ceremony room and ballroom was decorated beautifully. The ballroom is huge with a large dance floor and with a full bar at the back of the room. The servers at the venue were extremely nice and accommodating and always made sure the guest and wedding party had everything we needed and the food was actually really good. The ballroom also has the draped ceiling which always give it that elegant touch for a wedding. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a place to have their wedding. You will not be sorry so check it out.”
