    Nothing short of amazing

    We got married here on 12/7/18 and had the most wonderful time! From the beginning the staff at MOAR and Brûlée were so helpful, informative, and kind. Tori and Ashley were wonderful to work with, they answered all of our questions in a timely manner and were able to provide a ton of helpful suggestions and tips along the way! The day of the staff couldn’t have been more helpful, they were extremely attentive. The entire wedding ran so smoothly from the ceremony all the way through the end of the night. MOAR and Brûlée offer nothing but a memorable evening from the setting to the food to the drinks. They were so accommodating to dietary needs/preferences and our guests STILL talk about the food they had at our wedding. We had such a great experience here at the MOAR, I would HIGHLY recommend this place for a wedding.

    Wedding excellence

    The MAR was absolutely wonderful to work with for our November 2018 wedding - incredibly responsive to all of our questions leading up to our wedding. They had a great handle on all the little details and we did not worry about anything the day of. We could not hope for a smoother day!
