    Absolutely Amazing

    The Lazarretto Ballroom did a fabulous job on our wedding, both leading up the day and the day of. Terri and her staff are fantastic. Each meeting we had with Terri prior to the big day was amazing. She answered all the questions that we had and made the wedding process so easy. I am so happy that we chose the Laz for our wedding the bartenders, waitstaff, and everyone else who helped behind the scene are amazing. Again, Terri is a fantastic person and I couldn't have asked for a better venue.
