Amazing venue and staff
Being a same sex couple, the first hurdle we thought we would have to jump is finding a place that was accepting. But from the time we walked in the door to get a quote, to the very end of the wedding night everything went amazing. Fergie and her staff were very accepting, accommodating and did everything they could to make our wedding day special. Anytime i had any questions, Fergie was very prompt in responding. I couldn’t of imagined having my wedding anywhere else. Our wedding coordinator Stephanie did amazing at calming our nerves on the big day. We couldn’t of done it without her. The guests are still raving about the food, how nice the venue was and the great drinks. 10/10 would recommend them to anyone.Sent on 11/19/2019

MacRay Harbor Banquet Center
Venue was superb except for two minor exceptions...we had our ceremony in the lower level banquet room and had no way to keep guests out until we were ready. Also, the temperature and humidity in the entire facility, including the upper level where we had our reception, were too high. We requested several times for cooler temps but were told the A/C has not been working correctly. Other than that, everything was wonderful- staff, food, view, and drinks were A+.Sent on 07/12/2019

Tim and Lindsey’s Wedding
We were very satisfied with the service. The food was excellent and the bar tender was great. The only thing that happened was we ran out of plates and chicken. But otherwise everything was great!!Sent on 07/05/2019
