An absolutely dream
Erika and her staff are absolutely amazing. I am a busy, working mom who didn’t have a ton of time to be on the phone or driving out to AU to plan a wedding for 110 people. Erika and I planned the entire wedding via EMAIL! Once I sent an email, I knew I’d have a response almost immediately. She was quick, knowledgeable, and so accommodating. Erika worked with my florist to make sure the flowers and lights were installed in our room to absolute perfection.Sent on 12/04/2019
Now to the food and venue- wow. The food was incredible. Every single guest could not stop talking about the food. The herb crusted pork with Apple brandy sauce was the talk of the night, as well as the crab cakes and mashed potatoes. The cocktail hour appetizers, the cupcakes, the popcorn bar.. everything was delicious and the presentation was superb. Our rehearsal dinner buffet was yummy and the staff was beyond attentive and kind. The ambiance from the candles and decor in our reception room was something out of a dream. I would recommend AU to anyone looking for a beautiful place to say “I Do”. It is truly a one stop shop; ceremony venue, rehearsal dinner venue, and wedding reception venue all in one. ❤️ Thank you AU!
