  • I had the pleasure of attending a wedding at The Devyn this past Saturday. I had never been inside and was amazed at how beautiful the ballroom was. The food served by their in house catering company was delicious and the open bar had a wide variety of drinks to choose from. The staff was super friendly and very helpful. I will definitely keep this place in mind for any events I have in the future.

  • We had our wedding ceremony and reception at The Devyn. We also used All Event rental for all our rental items and Bee Ridge Florist for our floral arrangements. We couldn't have had a MORE perfect wedding day due to Carl Wise and all of his staff at The Devyn, All Event Rental and Bee Ridge Florist (Special shout outs go to Michelle and Teala!!!!). Our day was the best day of our lives thus far and that is largely in part to the Devyn and corresponding companies', guidance, help, understanding and care!! Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything!!!

  • Thank you to the team at The Devyn! You all were amazing to work with. I would choose you all over and over again if I have to plan an event again. Carl worked very closely with me and he along with is team took my ideas and made my wedding more than I expected. I had the Carlisle room at The Devyn. It was the perfect room and setting for our theme. Thank you again!!

  • My husband and I recently got married at The Devyn. We held the ceremony in the outside Courtyard and the reception in the Alexandra Ballroom. Everything was impeccably beautiful and elegant!! Both spaces give a feeling of grandeur and yet intimacy. It was exactly what we wanted!!

  • Jennifer at The Devyn was a HUGE help to me! She came through for me to make sure I had flowers and all the beautiful decorations for my Wedding day! Even though some of the details were last minute because my wedding planner was slacking, Jennifer made sure that I had everything I needed to make my wedding a dream come true! She is awesome and I wish I had know about her being a wedding planner when I started my planning process, I would have most definitely chosen her to plan my whole day completely! The Devyn was decorated so beautifully for me and it was the most amazing night of my life! I chose the Alexandra ballroom and it was the best choice I ever made for a venue! I recommend them and Jennifer's services for all the brides to be!

  • Cheap, Shabby, Shotty presentation with an owner who would fit in as a used car sales man villian in any 90s film. Everyone in the area who works in the wedding industry refuses to do business or be associated with this business or their other business affiliations!! Worst Venue in town!!! Catering is disgusting and would run if I was you!!

    Hello Sarah, I hope you and Jordan are doing well. First, this was a shock after seeing you last in ??November 2018? After viewing the venue and meeting all our staff you placed a non-refundable deposit per the contract you signed to hold the room and date for your wedding. We went through months of planning and pricing different decor items and food. You consulted with our florist spending time determining your choices. You met with the owner to go over your very elaborate design idea for the outside entrance. Without hesitation, you chose all the ideas and prices presented to you. With the upgrade to a better chef we offered you a tasting with him. The purpose of all tastings it is to get your thoughts in line with the chef. After the tasting you told the chef it was great and your were very happy. You were so pleased that you even went as far to ask and receive the leftovers from the kitchen to take home with you. Then suddenly you said you want to cancel. The reason you said was the food. The owner I sat down with you both and gave you the opportunity to express your feelings. You expressed emphatically that you love working with me and the owner. What was expressed to us was that it was not good timing for the wedding, either emotionally or financially. You said you “weren’t ready for it.” We offered many solutions to keep your dream alive. For example, we offered to transfer the deposit to a different date to give you the time to be ready and we offered another tasting. The bottom line that you expressed to us was, “We feel that the timing of our wedding is not right.” As talked about earlier the deposit is non-refundable. We held the room and date for your event not allowing others to host theirs weddings on that date. Your decision, however, was to cancel despite the solutions. It is always a customers right to cancel but we will always do everything possible to provide everything they want to make their day perfect as well as preserving their deposit. We never want a customer to lose their deposit. All four of us, I felt came away understanding each other with shaking hands and hugging each other.

  • If there is a zero I would have gladly put it. When we first inquired abot The Devyn we spoke with jennifer. Who was up front and honest. She left and made her own event company, now I understand why. After spending over 5,000 dollars coordinating with Carl. Specific down to the floor plan. I paid multiple times with cards via email, including my mother who paid for the champagne 2.00 a person. 120 bucks. (Chanpange that was warm and that my uncle had to pour himself for all of the tables because they weren't set up yet) I get to the reception and there are short chairs so another table had to be rolled out with 4 extra chairs. (all emails, how many chairs and how many we needed is documented with photos for proof) then, I hear how my uncle sat up the bar and my entire room was set up wrong. I have pictures Carl emailed me of the layout we agreed on. Then photos of how it was actually sat up. Completely wrong. Days later he emailed me while I am my honeymoon asking how I am going to...

  • Carl Wise and his entire team went above and beyond to help make our special day nothing short of amazing. From coordinating an after hours meeting time due to my work schedule from staying late for day before rehearsal because myself and my entire wedding party got stuck in traffic due to an accident on the Skyway to my day of planner and bartenders. I would like to say that all staff were extremely helpful, understanding and professional. And of course the venue looked absolutely magical. I would recommend the Devyn and Bee Ridge Florists to anyone I know and those who I don't as well. Thank you again! -Sean & Shanika

  • Jennifer is an absolute blessing to work with. She made sure everything was perfect for our big day, and even in the face of the hired bartender calling in sick, she quickly stepped in and personally bartended our wedding for us! Without any obligation to, she also helped orchestrate my rehearsal, and even passed me my bouquet and fluffed my dress and veil as I got ready to walk down the aisle. From start to finish, I had nothing but a positive experience with the staff and venue itself. The venue is beautiful and the coordination with Bee Ridge Florist and All Event Rentals is extremely helpful in getting many of your wedding needs in one location.
