Our Wedding reception was perfect.

Felicia at Art Ovation and the staff were professional, friendly and attentive to detail. The chef prepared food that was amazing for the reception. Every detail was perfect and if we didn't think of something, Felicia did. All our guest commented on how great the Art Ovation and their staff were. I highly recommend the Art Ovation.
