Charmed by the staff and location
I was beyond impressed with the service at Beaver Station. I had emailed Leanne late on a Friday night not expecting anything until the following week, but she responded almost immediately! This was just the beginning of the wonder communication I had with Leanne. She was so helpful when I was planning a wedding in four months. She was not abrasive or pushy about how it needed to be done, but always helpful with every question that came about and willing to send me any recommendations to look at. The day of my wedding I was so nervous to hear that Leanne would be out of town(YES I loved her that much). Even out of town she called me the night before to make sure I felt secure with all of the set up and timeline. On the day of my wedding, I was equally impressed with Leanne's replacement Betsy! She followed our timeline flawlessly. She even helped decorate to my liking! Beaver Station was no doubt the perfect place for the romantic wedding I had always dreamed of. The charm of the building shines through in every picture and our guests loved how welcoming they felt in the ambiance of the location.Sent on 02/20/2019

Pleasant and enlightening
I am the mother of the Groom. I met with Leanne before the couple did and with them. She was very helpful and professional. She gave wonderful ideas for the use of the facility and showed us many pictures of the venue during the month that we are booked for. Looking forward to working with her on all of the wedding plans.Sent on 04/04/2019

Beautiful venue for our wedding- staff was INCREDIBLE
Beaver Station Cultural & Event Center was more beautiful than I could have imagined for my wedding. The pricing was very reasonable. Leanne was so helpful from the start and assisted us through the end! It was great that Beaver Station has an approved list of vendors because it really helped narrow down the search. We used Leanne’s recommendation for our caterer (JPC), the cake (Kretchmar’s) and the DJ (FlipSide DJ) and we were not disappointed by any of it.Sent on 11/21/2018
Outside of working with Leanne, Claire was the coordinator for our wedding. She was INCREDIBLE. Our tables and centerpieces looked perfect and just how we wanted them, the other tables were set up beautifully, and all of the decoration were lovely. Claire made our day so memorable by making the room look magical. She was so attentive to us and kept the evening running smoothly. She was dressed so professionally and looked lovely and blended in taking care of things like she was a guest at the wedding.
Beaver Station was such a beautiful and unique place to have our wedding and both Leanne and Claire made our day perfect and one that the groom and I, and our friends and families will never forget!
