The best experience from start to finish

My daughter recently had her reception there. The experience was superb thanks to Austin and his staff. The guests raved about the food, the service and the venue. Austin is extremely knowledgeable and very helpful when assisting you in the planning. Execution of the setup of the room was superb. No need for a wedding planner the day of. Austin stayed the entire night right up to the wrap up of the after party at 2 am. I would highly recommend this venue and Exquisite Catering.

Amazing from start to finish

If you are debating having your wedding here, do it. I cannot think of one annoying or difficult thing I had to deal with when planning my wedding at Babeville. All of the reviews about Austin are true- he is extremely helpful and professional. All of my random and sometimes silly questions were answered within hours in the weeks leading up to the wedding. On the day of, we were able to use Babeville as a starting point for pictures while they were still setting up. We had drinks and snacks available throughout the day. The actual wedding was magical. The staff made sure I always had a drink in my hand and saved food for us while we took a few pictures during cocktail hour. If I needed anything throughout the night one of the staff members was there to help or deliver. And definitely do the after party!! SO worth it.

Just perfect

I wouldn鈥檛 change a thing about our experience with Asbury Hall and Austin and his team at Exquisite Catering. The food was incredible, the service was amazing, the venue was unique and absolutely beautiful (the cafe bulb lights and uplighting are a must), and everything went SO smoothly thanks to Austin鈥檚 coordination. It was one of the greatest days of our lives, and we got non-stop compliments about what a great event it was. I might get divorced just so I can get married at Asbury Hall again.
