We were blown away with the quality of service from the Marcus Center! We worked with Lynn throughout the whole process, and she made everything absolutely stress-free. It was like having our own wedding planner for the reception. She was very quick to respond to all of my emails (even if it was a question about a very small detail) and I always felt like they were willing to accommodate exactly what I wanted for my wedding. They offer package options for meals, but things can be substituted or slightly altered to fit exactly what you want for your day. I would highly recommend using them. It took a lot of stress out the planning the reception.Sent on 08/03/2016

Beautiful and Professional
The venue was gorgeous, especially at night. The atmosphere was so sophisticated and everything was clean and beautiful. The ceiling I was worried would take away from the evening but it added even more than I could've imagined. The service was phenomenal and Lynn was AMAZING to work with. She was always so responsive and accommodating to my constant emails. I would 10/10 recommend this venue.Sent on 01/14/2019
Only issue we had was they ran out of steaks for our guests and the late night snack was pulled from the floor early.

Booking The Marcus Center and Sazama's for our wedding was the best decision we have ever made; we will never forget our experience with them. It was truly unbelievable. We had SO many guests tell us they were left speechless and they had never seen anything like it. From day one, Lynn had gone above and beyond to ensure everything would go smoothly and would be exactly the way we wanted. The venue is stunning-from the Bradley Pavilion to having two other unique spaces for use; the Fitch Gardens and the private balcony overlooking the river. The service was like none other I have ever experienced at a wedding before (and I've been to A LOT of weddings) I couldn't believe how quickly they were able to serve a 5 course meal. The chef even allowed me to design the menu, and her interpretations on the dishes were beyond delicious. Our guests were absolutely blown away with the food. I cannot emphasize it enough that booking this venue will be the best decision you would ever make. I have some pretty high standards and the PAC and Sazama's team beyond exceeded them. Thank you again for allowing us to have our dream wedding! It would've never have been nearly the same elsewhere!Sent on 10/14/2018
