From the moment we walked into Macaluso’s we knew this was the place we were going to have our reception. From day one, Maroon and the rest of the staff had done nothing but go above and beyond to make sure our wedding was nothing but perfect! And it was, from start to finish our wedding day exceeded our expectations. We were also blown away buy the incredible and stunning renovations that were done! My guest will definitely be talking about my wedding for a very long time! I will continue to suggest Macaluso’s to everyone I know , along with using them for the rest of my family events!
