    Best Wedding Venue EVER

    Absolutely the best staff I could have worked with! Through the planning process, day-before, and day-of I could not have had a more cooperative venue. I was planning my wedding from four states away, but they were helpful in scheduling meetings around my travel schedule. All I had to do was show up for the wedding, as I knew they were taking care of everything else.

    And, THE FOOD!!! Hands down the best wedding food I have ever tasted, and I wasn't even planning on eating! Even a week after the wedding, I am still getting compliments on the venue, the staff, the bar, and the FOOD! Did I mention the FOOD??

    COVID or not, The Makoy Center is without a doubt the best wedding venue I could have imagined, and they made my day truly unforgettable!!
