Fall Wedding

We had our wedding at Encore Events in fall 2023 and it was so beautiful! Not only were we able to have the wedding of our dreams at a price we could afford, but we also got so much help since it came with so many features like the DJ! We liked it so much that my brother also got married at this venue!
