I highly recommend any wedding or event at Cafe La Cave! Carrie and Randy are amazing, talented, creative, and such down-to-earth people to work with...there are not enough good words for them! When my husband and I were looking for a venue, we remembered Cafe La Cave and walked in to check it out. Upon meeting Carrie, we were instantly impressed by the venue, the space, planning options, and her willingness to accomodate our needs. Randy was very helpful in coordinating the event and planning every detail perfectly so that my husband and I were able to enjoy the event. His high energy coupled with his amazing attention to detail made our wedding better than anything we could have imagined! I felt like I was living my fairy tale wedding. The staff themselves were absolutely wonderful and excellent ...they were always attentive, waiting on our guests, and attending to everyone's needs. My family and friends said they have never been to a wedding with such great service. In addition to everything, the food was so delicious! Guests had their choice of filet, chicken, or salmon. We heard nothing but compliments throughout the night. Carrie even worked with me since I have multiple food allergies to make sure I had a special meal. My husband and I are very very happy and pleased we had our wedding at Cafe La Cave. Carrie and Randy worked hard to make sure our day was truly special and memorable. They treated us like family and got to know us so that our wedding reception reflected who we are as a couple. They delivered on every promise and went above and beyond!

Cafe La Cave is one of the best kept secrets in the wedding industry! Their venue is absolutely incredible in every way. Randy and Carrie were wonderful throughout the wedding planning process, meeting with us several times and being in constant communication via email. They helped our vision come to life. We were looking for a venue that was "all-inclusive" and they definitely took care of all the behind the scenes work for us. They helped us perfect the small details that helped personalize our wedding, and did so up until the last minute!
Cafe La Cave is an amazing venue with a VERY reasonable price tag. We looked at several venues and this by far was the best overall value. Even better, the quality of the food and service was not compromised. We received SO many compliments about how delicious the food was, and the service was very prompt and professional. Randy emceed for us during the reception and was fantastic. He has a somewhat unique sequence of events but it flows well and makes for a very distinctive reception.
We, along with our guests had an absolute blast and Cafe La Cave gave us an unforgettable wedding. Thank you!
