    The perfect spot for a wedding!

    Our wedding was the absolute best because of the Lazaretto Ballroom. We are so lucky to have our wedding here!! Terri is an absolute angel! She worked with us for everything and was so understanding. Anytime I had a question she responded back in no time. Not once were we ever pestered for money or told that something was impossible. She has an answer for everything. She's a God-send!
    Also the staff is wonderful too. They were so accommodating to us and our guests. One of our guest didn't feel well prior to the cocktail hour, and Terri actually let him lie down in her office until he felt better. Also a waiter went out of their way to get my nephew something different to eat at the reception.
    The food is out of this world (were still hearing about it from our guests), the venue is large and the location couldn't be more convenient. Not to mention you won't find a more affordable place with the total package than the Lazaretto. We had our centerpieces, cake, bridal suite, food, bar, linens, chair covers, and taxes all included!
    The food tasting was incredible and we even got to take so much home to enjoy again and again. All of the recommended vendors were also spectacular! We had our dream wedding thanks to the Lazaretto and to Terri! Would recommend this place to anyone. Thank you guys so much for making our day special! We love you guys!

    The most minor details will be the ones you remember most about your wedding day. The amazing staff at Lazaretto Ballroom pays attention to these details more than any other venue I have worked. I proudly recommend this to each of my brides ahead of all other wedding venues.

    Working with the staff at Lazaretto is hands down one of the best nights you will experience as a pro. Terry and her staff are always on their A Game and take care of not only the bride and groom during the night, but also take care of vendors whenever in need. I always look forward to going back to the Lazaretto Ballroom and highly recommend this place more than ever.
