    Wedding November 6,2021

    Heather was my go to person! She was very professional and readily available when needed! We also dealt with Christine when ordering our beverages, she made everything easy! The night of our event everyone was on point! The people were so helpful and right there when we needed anything. I would definitely consider using their services and this venue again

    Best Wedding EVER

    Heather and the staff at the Frauenthal saved our wedding!
    The original venue we booked backed out and we were incredibly fortunate to have both our ceremony & reception at the Frauenthal (our original first choice).
    We wanted the architecture of a church, without the religious affiliation. Getting married on stage was an incredible experience and decorations were minimal due to the 18th century beauty.
    We had our cocktail hour for our guests on stage directly after the ceremony, then our guests only had to go up to the 2nd floor for the reception (in the beautiful reception gallery). Having the Delta hotel directly across the street was SUPER convenient for all and we saved money on transportation. Having our name in lights on the marquee was so cool and the entire day was unforgettable. We had plenty of space and even had our bride and groom dressing rooms.
    I cannot recommend this venue enough. Cannot wait for our wedding pictures to be ready to re live all the beautiful moments.
