    Best day ever!

    The Abbey was amazing! We did both our ceremony and reception there. Everyone loved the venue. All of my vendors had worked with the abbey before. Day of the wedding, I didn’t lift a finger. Everyone was so responsive, I couldn’t have asked for a better day.

    Main Street Abbey's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words Leslie!! We are so glad you enjoyed your day stress free. That is always our goal.

    All the Best,

    The Most Incredible Venue

    I can’t recommend this venue enough!! Candance did such an amazing job helping us prepare for months leading up to the wedding and on the day of she coordinated everything perfectly and was always very calm (even when we were a bit stressed). We originally scheduled our wedding the fall of 2020 and had to push back our big reception an entire year because of COVID. Candace was so kind and professional as we worked through the details of pushing back the wedding and she was able to answer every question we had to put us at ease. The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous and every one of our guests was impressed by the indoor space and the outdoor terrace. Our caterer (Russo’s Catering) was also incredible to work with and since they are a preferred caterer for the venue, they took care of every detail with ease. I will be recommending Main Street Abbey to all my friends so hopefully I can attend another wedding here! It is worth every penny and is the absolute perfect wedding venue.
