    Amazing wedding venue!

    From the minute we walked into Eastbank, I knew it was the perfect place for our wedding reception. We had a great experience working with Adam, and especially Krista! They were always so prompt to answer any questions we had, and were wonderful to work with. Krista gave us lots of ideas and suggestions, and helped to make our reception perfect! We had around 350 guests and they helped us come up with a layout to make the most out of the space without feeling tight, and it worked out great! They have the most beautiful space and wonderful employees, which makes it the best venue for your reception!

    Adam was absolutely fantastic showing us around and making us feel comfortable in this process. This was our second venue visit and we were so happy with it, we canceled the other visits. So excited for our big day!!
