WOW! Words can't express how AMAZING our wedding was at The Diplomat Banquet Center! This place is truly a hidden gem! Every single detail was PERFECT! I had guests asking me what it cost per plate because you would have thought we spent 120-150 dollars per person, but we did not. Pricing is BEYOND reasonable and more than generously fair!

Jenna was our point of contact and boy, are we happy she was. This lady is AMAZING! She took care of everything! Every single request made was granted, and handled with care. She went above and beyond for us to ensure that our day was perfect, she exceeded our expectations!

The food... OUTSTANDING! My only regret, not eating more of it! YUM!

You will REGRET not choosing the Diplomat, trust me! I attended PLENTY of weddings this past summer and NOTHING came close to ours at the Diplomat.

HUGE thanks to the Diplomat for making our day PERFECT! We will forever be loyal to you!
