So flexible, so kind!
Like many couples this year, my fiance and I made the decision to push back our wedding due to COVID-19. But unlike several horror stories I've heard this summer, it was a breeze to do so -- and that's because of Karin and everyone at the Marcus Center/Sazama's! When I reached out to Karin in June about our December 2020 wedding, I thought she'd think I was crazy for wanting to reschedule six months out or tell us we needed to wait and see how things progressed. Instead, Karin called back right away to let us know every option was on the table and the ball was in our court. The flexibility was great, but it was Karin's kind, thoughtful and sincere demeanor throughout the entire process that really blew me away. We are SO looking forward to our December 2021 wedding at the Marcus Center!Sent on 09/14/2020

We had a wedding booked with Sazama’s at the MPAC and unfortunately, Coronavirus changed our plans. Lynn and the team at Sazama’s reached out immediately and offered other opportunities to ensure our special day could still happen. We can’t thank Lynn and the Sazama’s team enough for all their help, support, and willingness to work with us! Our experience was so positive we would love to work with Lynn again in the future!!!Sent on 09/01/2020

Cool and calm during the storm!
I am a corona-bride and I had to change my wedding date from June 2020 to June 2021. It was a stressful time while I was deciding how to go about my dream wedding and the possibility of moving it. Before I even knew which way was up, Lynn with the Marcus Center reached out to me to make sure my family and I are okay and if there was anything she should do to help. I worked with Lynn to find another date in 2021 once I realized that was what I wanted to do. I cannot say enough about how lucky I am to have picked Marcus Center as my venue. So supportive, so helpful, and so accommodating. Thank you thank you.Sent on 04/26/2020
