Midsummer Night’s Dream

“I chose to have my small wedding (about 30 guests) at this venue and could not be more pleased with my choice. The atmosphere Mehmet and Lela have created at the Melange is surreal, an Old World oasis, where stress is left at the door and one is welcomed into the Ozelsel family. I was immediately drawn to this venue because of its character and charm evident in the eclectic blend of decor that has been individually handpicked and deliberately collected over time. Additionally, the gardens and Mediterranean courtyard are absolutely lovely and create a romantic idyllic setting, reminiscent of a Midsummer Night’s Dream.  While the venue itself is utterly beautiful, Mehmet and Lela are the most gracious and hospitable hosts, and took it upon themselves to ensure my wedding day was flawless. Any questions or concerns I had over the course of planning were immediately addressed either via e-mail or phone. Their attention to detail and expertise made the process easy and smooth, to where I could enjoy every aspect of wedding planning. Finally, the services provided in the wedding package were top-notch. I was given gourmet menus from which to design a four-course meal for my guests including a decadent white chocolate and raspberry wedding cake that was absolutely amazing. Overall, every single course was fresh, using local ingredients, and prepared with culinary genius. …The service provided by the waitstaff, headed by Mehmet and Lisa, was flawless and the whole evening went off without a hitch. Overall, I cannot express how superb this place and their service is. From the moment my mother and I walked in, to the moment the groom and I drove away, I was amazed at the level of service provided by such wonderful people. The Melange and the Ozelsel’s will always hold a special place in my heart.”
