So Glad We Chose European Chalet!

We selected European Chalet because we were able to rent out the entire venue to ourselves, have different spaces for the ceremony and reception, have ample parking, and get venue/catering/decor covered with a single vendor. I did not have a wedding coordinator so I worked with John K from European Chalet directly and he was AMAZING! Always quick to respond to emails and calls, very flexible when it came to touring the venue or requesting accommodations, and extremely professional and kind in all interactions. The only drawback of this venue is that there is not a space for getting ready onsite, so I changed into my wedding dress in the bathroom and had my wedding party had to block people from seeing me before the ceremony. It was not a big issue at all. Everything went perfectly the day of the wedding and we got so many compliments on the food provided by the venue. I 100% recommend working with John and the European Chalet!

European Chalet Banquets was an exceptional place to have a wedding reception. They paid attention to every little detail. Their wait staff is top notch, very friendly and accommodating. A wedding is a big day and you want it to be perfect...European Chalet Banquets makes everything go just the way it should. They take care of everything, there is nothing they won't do to make your day just the way it should be, beautiful in every way. I highly recommend this banquet hall for all your special occasions. I'm sure I will be using them again in the future. Thank you to all of the staff at European Chalet.
