    Baby shower.

    Hidden gem location. Beautiful and rustic. The staff were very friendly and helped during the set up which isn’t required but really added that “extra touch”. Has beautiful glass windows in the back which has a pretty view. Would definitely recommend 100x over. We loved that we had the freedom to decorate how we wanted and had the time before and after the party.

    The Best Day of Our Lives!

    AWC was the BEST experience ever! My husband and I worked with the most polite and diligent staff members. They were incredibly professional and extremely helpful in helping us achieve our dream wedding amidst all the craziness of Covid. They were also incredibly understanding and helpful since we had to plan the wedding while living long distant. The event center is gorgeous, unique, and intimate. I highly Recommend hiring this vendor!
