My husband and I had our Pakistani wedding here in August 2020. We wish there were more stars to click on, they TOTALLY DESERVE WAY MORE! Abbington was not a only a beautiful, intimate and well located venue, THEY HAD THE BEST SERVICE EVER. Especially during the pandemic, they did everything to keep it safe and yet enjoyable for all guests.
We personally want to thank Aly and the general manager Tara. Aly was super welcoming and helpful throughout your entire process and was there at any minute to help you on your special day. They went above and beyond working with us and providing the best service we could ever ask for. We loved our experience so much, that we just went back 5 months later to book another event for our baby shower. :)
PLEASE DON'T HESITATE, WALK INTO THE ABBINGTON DISTINCTIVE BANQUETS, AND BOOK YOUR EVENT WITH THEM. You will totally not regret it.Sent on 02/06/2021

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.Sent on 09/25/2020

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.Sent on 09/29/2020
