    Above and Beyond

    If you are looking for a dream wedding where you are the Belle of the Ball and your groom is Prince Charming then this is your ballroom. From start to finish it's what dreams are made of and you get to star in it! My son and "daughter" were married here last Friday. Every element of care was handled for us. The food was delicious, the lighting, the dance floor, the bridal suite, cocktail hour and so much more were all superb. Don't delay, make an appointment today and see for yourself.

    Definitely Choose Finley Catering!!!

    Finley Catering at the Ballroom at the Ben exceeded all of our expectations. We had the absolutely perfect wedding day thanks to them. We worked with Stacey from the beginning who is so nice and enthusiastic and makes you super excited for your big day! She had amazing recommendations as well that made our wedding truly incredible. Ott is also a dream come true. He makes you feel so incredibly special, you will feel like a famous person. Ott and the bridal suite attendant Barbara took AMAZING care of us. Everything runs flawlessly with Finley, you will not have to worry about a single thing. They are true professionals in this industry, extremely nice and personable and easy to work with, and of course the food is out of this world. We received so many compliments about the quality of the food (that is VERY plentiful!). Our guests were so impressed by both the cocktail hour, dinner, and the exquisite dessert room! Finley takes care of everything, you will be so happy you went with them! Our wedding day was a true dream come true.
