    Magical!

    Wow, wow, wow!!!! What a magical weekend it was for us, our family, and friends at the Arts Ballroom! Simply put, it was absolute perfection! I couldn't have imagined how special and perfect the day was going to be! Everyone was over-the-top, they outdid themselves. I've been to many wedding venues and the Arts Ballroom sets themselves apart from the rest. The food, hospitality and service was top notch, something me and most of my guests have never seen or experienced before - it was endless!!! They truly go above and beyond to make your event so enjoyable, STRESS-FREE (I didn't even know that could be possible at my own wedding) and memorable...it couldn't have been a better day!!! My husband and I, family, and friends will cherish the memories created at the Arts Ballroom for the rest of our lives. The comments, texts, and phone calls continue to pour in from Saturday raving about the wedding.

    I would be remiss if I didn't personally thank the AMAZING STAFF! Thank you to CHRIS for planning the event and having the most incredible staff, COURTNEY for making sure everything came together, OLIVIA for being the best bridal attendant, MIKE for being the most attentive and detail oriented maitre 'd, ED the captain for making sure the event was executed flawlessly (and it sure was), PETE for keeping the drinks flowing and making the best cocktails and CHEF GEORGE for putting out the most undeniably delicious spread of food that anyone has ever seen!!!! The amount of food in addition to the variety at cocktail hour was mind-blowing. Every person I talked to couldn't believe the stations/displays they were seeing and that we were going to have a dinner service still lol. To all of the other STAFF MEMBERS that worked the event, you didn't go unnoticed! You're like the little elves working tirelessly in the background to ensure everything is smooth and steady. Last but not least, the owners; JOHN, MAGGIE, BILLY, TIM, and VINNY. I can't stress enough how exceptional the weekend was and we're so grateful for everyone that played a part in it! We can't thank you enough! Thank you!

    With love,
    The BooBoo's :)

    Worth Every Penny

    We initially started with our coordinator Kayleigh who left during our planning. We ended up using Courtney at the venue. Everything was taken care. Communication was easy and stress free. WORTH EVERY PENNY. We still have people raving about the food!
