Absolutely beautiful, classy and top of the line for a wedding venue.Sent on 01/30/2018
Everything from decor to service to the wedding coordination was perfect. We had a elegant, fun wedding!
It was very spacious with room for cocktail area, reception seating, a Dj area, desert area and a large dance floor.
Maize was beautiful and the lighting was perfect, but it was the staff I'll remember. They were all smiling, all seemed happy to be there. Thank you for being so kind. The service and food are top notch. The wait staff and bartenders were so professional.
I can't say enough but for sure our guests and our families walked away extremely happy!
Truly did have the BEST wedding!
Fernando and Wilson made sure to impress us, And that they did! Couldn't imagine having our wedding anywhere else, Thanks to Maize!
A 5-star experience!
