    Awesome Wedding

    Our wedding was wonderful. We went from 170 guest to 50 guest, and Aly and staff still made it memorable. We couldn't have chosen a more perfect venue.

    Covid Wedding

    My husband and I had our wedding here this past Labor Day weekend. Let me just say Aly our coordinator was amazing to work with! She made the process so smooth . The servers were great too! If I could give more stars I would. The room, the food, and the attention to detail that the Abbington provided made our wedding day perfect even during this pandemic. If you are considering them for an event id say absolutely go here. They have amazing customer service and the ballrooms are gorgeous. I look forward to having more future events here. Thank you for making our day truly a fairytale.
