    My husband and I got married on October 6, 2017 and had our reception at Fiddler’s Elbow. We booked the event in July, 2016 with Lorraine and after meeting her, and having a tour of the venue we were excited to work with her. However, during the summer of 2017, the management switched to Jade and Teri. These two ladies were absolutely amazing! When we started talking details with them, they had been there maybe a month, and they knew the answers like they had been there for years. They were very professional, honest and easy to work with. They made our wedding day perfect. We appreciated their constant check-ins with my husband and I throughout the night, ensuring we were doing okay and seeing if we needed anything (always making sure we had a fresh drink in our hand). The day before the wedding I gave Teri a list of how we wanted the room decorated and when we arrived after the ceremony everything was exactly how we had dreamed.
    The day of the wedding my bridesmaids and I got ready in the bridal suite -"The Reagan Room" upstairs at Fiddler’s. They provided breakfast and lunch for all of us. The hair salon came out to Fiddler’s and loved the set-up of the room, easily enough space to do 8 bridesmaids, 2 moms and my hair.
    FECC strives to provide excellent service. As was evident every time we met with Teri, Jade, and the other wonderful employees. All of our venders have told us that they really enjoyed working with the staff at FECC.
    They have a shuttle that my husband and the groomsmen took after getting ready at FECC for transportation to the church.
    The outdoor space is stunning (and one of the main reasons why we picked FECC). The terrace with the awning, fire pits and fireplace was ideal for a Fall wedding. The sunset over the golf course was picturesque. The exterior stone building makes a perfect backdrop for photos and is gorgeous as guests drive up to the venue. The reception room has a stage for the band and a large dance floor.

    They have a special lighting system that allows for direct spotlights on the centerpieces, along the façade of the walls and also on the maid of honor and best man while they give their speeches. It is perfect place for a classic, elegant wedding.
    The food was absolutely delicious. My husband's grandmother, raised in Italy, is still talking about the charcuterie table during the cocktail hour and the crab cake appetizer (it’s been 6 weeks since the wedding). The serving of the entrees was impressive as well – 3-4 servers all come out at once so the entire table is served at the same time. The pastry chef is very talented and made us the most perfect cake. It was absolutely delicious!
    The brick oven pizza truck at the end of the night was exactly what our guests wanted. We ended the night with a sparkler send off. Our guests filed outside and formed a tunnel with the sparklers. Jade had a golf cart for us at the end on the other side which we jumped on and rode off into the night. Afterwards, our guests enjoyed personal sized brick oven pizza’s already boxed in the parking lot while waiting for the bus back to the hotel. It was a magical ending to the most perfect day!
