    The perfect place for our wedding!

    Wow! We cannot recommend FECC enough. Everything about this venue was perfect for our wedding, especially the venue coordinator, Meg. She is fabulous and guided us through the entire process. Meg was responsive, reliable, and helped ensure our wedding day went off without any issue! From the tour, to the white glove tasting, to the actual reception, our wedding experience was comfortable, fun, and truly enjoyable!

    The venue itself is gorgeous, and our guests loved the food and atmosphere! We were able to work with the in house Sommelier to bring in some special bottles of wine and liquor, which really made the evening unique. The quality of the food was incredible, guests were able to order tableside, and we actually loved the menu so much we added an extra entree! The cocktail hour was unbelievable, we were blown away at the selection and qulaity of the items.

    FECC is an "all-in-one" venue, which means for a single price per head, they take care of almost the entire day! Food and drinks (including morning-of!), servers, bar, linens, reception item set up and break down etc. We LOVED that we didn't have to stay behind at the end of the night to break down and bring back any items (except for gifts/card).

    While the venue is expensive, we really did receive the absolute best. We would highly recommend this venue for any couples looking for a wedding venue!

    Exactly what you're looking for

    From the moment we stepped onto Fiddler's and met Meg, my husband and I knew this was the place we wanted our reception to be. Meg has the ability to just make you feel comfortable and calm, even when wedding planning can be the opposite. She was so responsive throughout the whole wedding process; even when she was on maternity leave! On the day of, Lara did an amazing job setting up all of my decorations and checking in on us making sure we were okay! She even made sure we ate and that our cake was saved the next day. I couldn't have imagined things would have ran as smoothly as they did if it were not for Lara and Meg!

    The food here is spectacular, the views are breathtaking, and I didn't just feel like bride #85849 -- they truly took the time with us throughout the whole journey; from answering our questions, to private tastings, to having one wedding per day, to getting ready in the bridal suite, and even visiting Fiddler's after the wedding. Everyone there is so welcoming and talented in what they do -- you won't regret booking this venue!

    Mother of the Bride

    Our wedding at Fiddler's Elbow far exceeded expectations. The entire experience from the planning until the actual event was made so easy with the knowledgable, professional and experienced staff coordinating all aspects. They helped guide us through all the challenges that Covid 19 threw our way. Our wedding was months ago and people are still talking about it. The food was amazing, the setting spectacular and the staff was beyond amazing. Just beyond thrilled with Fiddler's Elbow.
