This was the perfect place to host our son in law and daughter's wedding. John and the entire staff were super helpful and responsive. We keep hearing from our guests how wonderful the evening was and what a great time everyone had. We had the hors d'veours in the lounge area, a movie for the children in the theater and dinner in the reception area and through out the evening guests could wander around looking at cars. This was the most wonderful evening. I highly recommend Gateway Classic Cars for your event.Sent on 07/17/2016
