Our wedding day was beautiful and went off without a hitch because Britty and her crew at 413 on Wacouta are AMAZING!Sent on 10/03/2019
From the moment we stepped into 413 on Wacouta and first met with Britty, my husband and I knew we would be in good hands. From advice about vendors to all of the behind the scenes schedule management - Britty was there for us 100%.
The space is beautiful and really speaks for itself. We made just enough decorations to accent what was already there. Otherwise, Britty's ability and willingness to adjust lighting and the floor plan to match our image of the day, made the space come alive.
Nothing can fully prepare you for the swirl of emotions felt on your wedding weekend, but my husband and I felt so secure and supported by Britty and her staff at 413 on Wacouta. We are beyond thankful for all they did for us and highly recommend them!
413 on Wacouta Event Center's reply:Tara- Thank you so much for taking the time to talk about your experience at 413 on Wacouta!! I LOVED working with you and and David to plan your big day. I loved all of the lavender details in your decorations and those delicious smelling lavender soaps your guests left with as favors! And it was so fun seeing pies out for dessert from Deco Catering rather than traditional cake- so fun!! Wishing you guys all the best! -Britty

Be prepared to be spoiled
We needed a venue large enough to accommodate our group but with an intimate and elegant feel. 413 on Wacouta did not disappoint!! We had 3 months to plan and execute everything! The venue is so beautiful that very little decorations were needed. We chose Sterling Catering (Sarah) and we had Toni (413 on Wacouta) as our coordinator. Oh. My. Goodness. EVERYTHING went without a hitch. These people know their stuff and leave NOTHING up to chance! We were communicated with in a timely fashion during the planning stage. They all took notes on what we wanted and how we wanted it. We never had to wait to have a question answered. As the bride, I thought that there might be something that was required of me on my wedding day. But EVERYTHING was taken care of!! We would HIGHLY recommend 413 on Wacouta for your wedding and/or your event. Be prepared to be spoiled! -JackieRead LessSent on 04/28/2020
