The GTCTC was affordable, the staff was very helpful and attentive to all of our needs on my daughter's special day.
The GTCTC coordinator helped us with room layouts and gave us ideas.

The Aramark catering was outstanding, and the food was also 5 star. I felt like I was eating at a 5 star restaurant the food was so good.
Salmon was cooked perfectly and the prime rib was fork tender.

The day I toured this facility I knew my wedding dreams were coming true. The Greater Tacoma Convention and Trade center is gorgeous, and the service was impeccable. All I had to do was sit down with the coordinators there and explain my vision for my wedding and they made it real. They even provided the majority of decor saving me alot of money. The day of my wedding, I showed up and everything was set up to perfection. I even had an assistant catering to my every whim. The food was beautifully displayed and delicious. I would never have thought my wedding could be so stress free and in such a stunning building. They handled everything from set up, cutting and serving my cake, to tear down. It was truly an amazing day there.
