    Exceeded our expectations!!

    Fairview Metropolitan exceeded our expectations! Planning a wedding during a pandemic was not easy but their team made rescheduling and planning as smoothly as possible with their attentiveness and communication. Having so many small and big details to decide on, choosing Fairview was by far the best and easiest because of the all inclusive deals they offered. The food was delish and the service was the best! Shout out to our bartender, unfortunately didn’t get her name, but she personally made sure my husband and I had a drink all night. Our guests even raved about her! DJ Keel was awesome, had our guests on the dance floor ALL NIGHT!! Angela was by far the sweetest, most attentive coordinator you can ask for (highly recommend to add a day of coordinator) it was a pleasure from the very beginning of planning with her, I felt like she understood our vision. I could go on and on about how amazing everything turned out. Be sure to check out Fairview yourself, they do not disappoint!! Thank you Fairview for the wedding of our dreams!!

    Professional, Courteous, Flexible

    Our daughter had her wedding and reception here at Fairview Metropolitan back in 2017 (https://www.fairviewevents.com/fairview-metropolitan-testimonials). We were so pleased with our experience with the Fairview staff and the event itself (absolute perfection), we decided to hold our parents’ Celebration of Life here. This review is in regards to the COL, however we believe the expertise and quality service provided by Fairview would apply to any event and/or function.

    We held our parents' Celebration of Life at Fairview Metropolitan on July 30, 2021. Event planning is ultra stressful and the pandemic just added to the mix. However, Angela Muse (our event director) made the process so effortless. She had so many helpful suggestions and was a true joy to work with. Very professional and courteous. With her assistance, we were able to customize a package that truly honored our parents' memory.

    This reception was held right after the church and burial services. We decided on appetizers, bar service and buffet dinner for 150 guests. The funeral services took almost 3 hours. By the time we got to Fairview, everyone was pretty hungry. When we arrived, all the appetizers and the bar service were ready and our guests were able to enjoy them right away. Appetizers were fabulous (I highly recommend the Ahi Tuna Tartar). The venue itself was beautifully set up. This was an afternoon event (no mood lighting) but it still had an elegant feel to it. We were also able to drop off the seating chart and pictures of our parents the day before our event (Fairview provided the easels). One less thing to do the day of the funeral. The buffet dinner was delicious and there was enough so that our guests could go for seconds if they wanted. Kudos to Kathy our bartender! Super friendly and kind. We felt so lucky to have her there.

    We had a video presentation and a Hula Show. We also had our brothers sing some songs and wanted to allot time for guests to pay tribute to our parents. DJ Andrew made all this happen. He provided the music, mikes, speakers and projection screen. The funeral ran long, and we arrived to the venue almost 45 minutes late. We were worried we'd go overtime with all we wanted to do, but DJ Andrew didn't let that happen. We were able to do all the presentations within our 4 hour time slot. He moved everything along so smoothly and didn't make it feel rushed. The dinner music was spot on for our family. We used the dance floor for the Hula Show and the singing which worked out perfectly. At the close of the event, he played 'Lovely Day'. That got everyone on the dance floor! He had mentioned to us that Celebrations of Life don't necessarily have to be sad occasions. He was right. Although we were sad to lose our parents, DJ Andrew made our event an unforgettable and true celebration of their lives. Many thanks to you DJ Andrew!

    Angela and the crew at Fairview Metropolitan really know their stuff. Our family is so grateful to them. Highly recommend this venue. Excellent, flexible and professional service. Oh and did I mention, plenty of free parking? Enough said.

    Everything was perfect!

    WOW! Everything was perfect with Fairview from the beginning call with Kelley to the final goodbye on that magical night. My honey and I tied the knot at sunset on 11/16/19. IT WAS PERFECT!

    Coordinator: Kelley - I can not brag on this amazing human enough. From our first talk, walk-through, emails, text, calls, multiple questions and meetings, she did an outstanding job!! Her advice, listening ear when everyone was getting on my nerves and calmness was greatly appreciated. Words can not express my gratitude. On the day of the wedding she took care of everything including me!

    Venue: Simple and gorgeous! The ceremony was right before sunset at 4:25 (I was late). No wind. A plane did go by but it's the airport next door and it wasn't super loud. I didn't do any of the gazebo decor but the background with the sparkling grass and white chairs, very elegant. The tent/reception was everything!! The reason I picked this venue was because of the tent. The drapery all around, with the spider lighting and twinkle lights, makes the place decorated!

    Food: Even though I didn't eat any of appetizers, the food was good. Your typical wedding food but it's yummy. I don't recommend the veggie lasagna or the salmon. All the salads, side dishes and main entrees were yummy. They have a really large menu. We had the food buffet style so there was so so much food. Everyone was able to eat twice.

    Bar: The drinks were great! The bartender Kathy was so friendly and made sure I had a drink all night. Our guest are still talking about how the drinks were great!

    Cake: I used their vendor, Mazzetti's for the cake. It was super moist, beautiful and yummy. The ladies at the bakery were very helpful and sent me pictures of cakes after I explained to them what I wanted.

    Fairview has affordable and flexible packages. They truly are a one stop shop, they have everything. I only used their vendor for the cake. We used our own DJ, who had the party going from the moment we stepped in the tent. I used Modish Events & Decor for my sweetheart table and wedding party tables.
