Kimberly Scholten · Getting married on 07/09/2021
Our wedding was affected by COVID-19 and so due to the size of the room that we chose for the reception at the Memorial Coliseum we had to choose another room. In the meantime of finding this all out, we had heard from the church that they had strict limitations on everything as well! So when we talked to the Coliseum about the reception room, we threw in another idea of using the Arena for both wedding and reception. They did some checking and made it happen. The Coliseum could not have been any better about helping us and working with us on our wedding/reception. If it weren't for the Coliseum being there for us, I honestly don't know what we would have done. Brett and Nathan were absolutely fantastic to work with and can not say enough good about them and the Coliseum. Also, making the goal horn happen during our first kiss as husband and wife was amazing and a fantastic surprise for my husband! The Memorial Coliseum outdid themselves on our reception and wedding and our wedding is something we will never forget and will be telling our grandkids when we are old.Sent on 10/12/2020
Allen County War Memorial Coliseum's reply:Thank you Kimberly and Jason! It had been a long time since there was a banquet (or a wedding ceremony) in the arena. Thanks for being great to work with! All the best to you and the boys.

An Absolutely Wonderful Reception
Our original wedding date was May 30, 2020. When we realized we would have to reschedule, the Coliseum stepped up and couldn't have been more accommodating. Nathan and Brett were awesome to work with. They were able to work with our numbers, provide the ample space for our lobby cocktail hour, and a larger area for our reception and dance floor. The food was amazing, the facility impressive, and their attention to detail and to us during the whole event was top notch. From their flexibility on when we could access the area to set up, to providing ideas and suggestions when we asked, the desire to work with us and make us happy was evident. Along with our memories of the wedding that happened during the coronavirus pandemic, we will have memories of the fun we had working with the Coliseum staff preparing for it, as well as the great wedding reception venue where it happened.Sent on 08/23/2020
