    Wedding Reception 9/14/19

    Highly recommend!! We had such a great experience with Abe Lincoln Event!!! The staff were very professional, efficient and helpful through out the whole event. The fact that you were all accessible the whole time from planning and prep and event itself made everything run so smoothly and beautifully. Price is very reasonable as well. Thank you again!!
