    Turned a Gym into a Wedding Venue

    What would we have done without Avalon, they were so professional, gave us EVERYTHING we wanted and super affordable! People won't stop talking about how amazing the food was, and can we please talk about how they TRANSFORMED SportRock Climbing Center (a gym) into a stunning wedding venue for our dream wedding! Will hire them for any upcoming events!

    We working with Christina, and boy was she a life saver! We were working with a really tight budget, and she went above and beyond to help us have the reception we dreamed of. She kept track of all of our detailed schedules, special requests, and complicated seating arrangements. On top of taking care of our catering, Christina functioned as a day-of coordinator as well!! She helped keep our reception on schedule and even was there during our ceremony to tell everyone when to walk down the aisle. Seriously, what more could you ask for?!?

    Avalon made our reception. The food and dessert was amazing. Milena is the best! I am not the bride that knows what she wants - than goodness for Milena! She was able to provide me with suggestions and ideas for the venue, linens, food options, and steered me away from what could have been some pretty unsightly decisions. The tasting really sold us - we were able to try everything we would be eating at our actual event, prepared and presented the same way it would be at the event. The cupcakes and cake were incredible and I seriously think about ordering them in bulk separately. The staff for the event were very professional. We had passed hors d' oeuvres, wine poured at dinner, and 2 bartenders - all were amazing. Guests told me after how cool the batenders were. Will definitely use Avalon for events in the future.
