Love | Partner | Serve

Abernethy Center exists to bring people together to experience the joy that it is to love and be loved. Over the past 18 years we've been part of thousands of love stories and developed the skills and expertise to craft extraordinary celebrations. Most importantly we have a heart for people and what matters to you. Your event is our event. We care about your “cares”. We partner with each client to create an event that is expressly unique- whether that be an epic love story, a nonprofit fundraiser, or a celebration of life. We’re in the business of creating extraordinary memories!

Who We Are
As a team we are dedicated, coachable, invested, innovative, adaptive, accountable and courageous. We believe that how we treat each other sets the foundation for our entire business and are of the mindset that “Who” we are being is equally important as “What” we are doing.

Love is at the foundation of who we are and at the heart of every event we perform. We love celebrating love!

We consider the world our practice-ground to create and connect. We’re committed to creating an environment that expresses genuine caring for all beings and forwards peace in the workplace, our community and the world.

How We Work
Our work is grounded in a set of core values that informs who we are and guides us in our daily work. We coach, communicate and manage our team from those values. We believe that communication begins with listening, and that “how” we listen is key to being of service. We are curious, progressive and open-minded, and understand that every event is a unique and personal expression for each individual.

We believe that to serve, is truly the highest form and expression of caring for one another and that service starts with us providing a foundation of integrity and transparency.

    Amazing Venue and Experience

    I cannot recommend Abernethy Center enough. The team was absolutely incredible to work with. My husband and I got married during the pandemic and were really nervous about everything. They bent over backwards to make our day perfect. If you are looking for a beautiful place to get married and want to work with a great staff this is the place to go!

    Thank you so much for your kind words! We absolutely LOVED getting to be a part of your day!
