We are honored and humbled when we receive feedback like this, knowing that we have made someone's special day. Kudos to our team member Madeline Cope, and thank you to Courtney Z for the incredible review on the Knot: https://bit.ly/36Gq6AV

"I cannot speak highly enough about working with Madeline Cope through Discovery World/Bartolotta for our wedding in June. To start, we really appreciated her responsiveness in communication throughout the whole process. She always got back to us right away, was willing to answer questions over the phone and even meet in person at the venue to discuss logistics again before the big day. Many of our other vendors were difficult to get ahold of and needed multiple reminders to return calls, so it was really helpful that Madeline was always available to communicate with; it helped to relieve a lot of stress and frustration.

On the day of our wedding, she was calm, fully present, and went above and beyond what we expected from a venue coordinator. She brought us food during cocktail hour when we didn’t get a chance to try our appetizers due to lengthy family pictures, she calmly gave reminders 10 and 5 minutes before speeches for family members and helped the bride without a purse to keep track of her things the entire evening. We loved working with Madeline and would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone interested!

Discovery World as a venue was absolutely breath-taking. We received SO MANY compliments on how gorgeous the space was and how beautiful the surrounding area was. It was very easy for us to take all of our pictures on-site without having to travel around the city to get a good background. My only complaint is that we had to have all of our décor out of the venue on the same night we got married. It would be nice if they had a storage closet for these items that the bride and groom could pick up the next business day because it was difficult to coordinate moving everything into a large car and having a driver that didn’t enjoy the open bar. The staff was extremely helpful in getting all décor items packed up at the end of the night and providing carts to move all of our stuff.

OVERALL 10/10 for Discovery World and Madeline Cope-We are incredibly thankful!" -Courtney Z

We could not be more excited that Cyanne has returned to our team!

Welcome home, Cyanne!

Meet Cyanne Gore, Assistant Operations Manager at Bartolotta Catering & Events at Discovery World. Cyanne is excited to return to The Bartolotta Restaurants! "I was originally hired by The Bartolotta Restaurants in April of 2012 at the age of 19 after working as a temporary server for the company a year before. Throughout the years I was able to grow from temporary worker, to server, to banquet captain, to the assistant operations manager that I am currently. I grew so much thanks to the opportunities that The Bartolotta Restaurants afforded me and my sense of community has grown as well. I am excited to be back to continue to grow and to repay the company that gave a young 19-year-old a chance back in 2012."

Our team members are our secret sauce, and we are thrilled to have Cyanne rejoin The Bartolotta Restaurants family of employees.

We are very happy to welcome back Madeline!

Meet Madeline Cope, Catering Manager at Bartolotta Catering & Events at Discovery World. She is excited to return to The Bartolotta Restaurants because "it is my 5th year as Catering Sales Manager with Bartolotta Catering at Discovery World. I have met so many wonderful Bartolotta team members, clients, vendors; really does feel like a family! As events continue to book and return to our venue, it is the best to see everything come together and to see our guests be able to gather with family and friends again for weddings, events, non-profit galas, corporate functions, and more! I look forward to more opportunities within Bartolottas to support catering events. The most successful events are the ones that achieves your goals and exceeds your expectations."

Winter tends to get in the way for most people, cramping their travel plans, frustrating their movement, adding layers and additional considerations to their day. This is not the case for Lidija. For her, winter is energizing. She and Ron had hoped for the perfect winter wedding. It's exactly what they got - fresh snow, twinkle lights, a cozy dinner, even a surprise firework show. Finding joy and celebration in Winter, this a small peak into their day.
