We had the pleasure of working an event at Abington Art Center this past October. Sam was always very communicative and made the process leading up to the wedding enjoyable and easy. She was very flexible and easy to work with. Highly recommend the Art Center for your wedding or other special event! Looking forward to working there again soon :)
