    Perfect Wedding Weekend!

    We had our daughters's wedding at the Marquis De Lafayette Ballroom. It was absolutely perfect! We worked with Marie and she was awesome! She was always very responsive with emails. Very accommodating when we wanted to meet up to go over room set up or show my daughter's new in-laws the room when they came into town. The day of staff was fantastic. They had the room set up exactly as we had wanted. It was perfect! I had many guest telling me how great the staff was. The head bartender was fantastic..making great drinks all night long. The food was delicious! The venue is absolutely beautiful and the staff made the night perfect. I really can't say enough about the whole experience. It was perfect!

    Amazing experience!

    My wedding was held in the Crystal Ballroom (the smaller of the two ballrooms run by Marquis De Lafayatte). Ali and her team did an amazing job making my wedding a perfect experience! The food was delicious, the staff was great, and I can't think of one thing to complain about. Ali was responsive to every email I sent prior to the wedding and was always helpful. Everyone had a great time and I felt supported every step of the way.
