Vivian was awesome. The venue turned out to be beautiful. They offered a military discount to my husband and I that we were very grateful for. Vivian was very patient with my husband who had no clue about planning a wedding but knew I needed his help because I was deployed. Thank you Vivian. Everything was perfect

Rudy, Ann and the team there are phenomenal! They are so professional and the area is so gorgeous! My wedding was like a fairy tale! They are so kind and willing to work with whatever you need! They even let us borrow 22 centerpieces at no charge! Definitely get the décor package along with the room, you won't regret it!


My husband and I absolutely loved the service provided by the Bayanihan!!!! We originally worked with Mr. Rudy Batista who was so nice, friendly and personable, then Joel and Liberty were taking care of our needs and helping us with arrangements. The price was so reasonable we couldn't say no and didn't want to go anywhere else. Thanks again for making our wedding special and memorable!!

With Kind Regards,

Jermaine & Claudette Johnson

Gives local and traveling filipinos a place to connect, and for those interested in filipino culture a place to experience it.
