    Anderson Wedding

    The Events center was so easy to work with. They were very accommodating. They wanted the wedding to be the bride and groom's wedding. I felt they wanted to make it special for the bride and groom.

    Elegant Venue

    We had nothing but great things said about this venue by our guests, they loved the food, they loved the space, and the location. For us the value for money was great in comparison to other venues in the area. The different packages you can choose was great and they even have multiple venue spaces to choose from that will fit into anyone's budget. Coordinator there made planning very easy and helpful with all the stress of a wedding. The food you do have to get through the venue but it's amazing I wouldn't have picked any other caterer - i'm still getting compliments on how good it was!
