    Danielle goes above and beyond!

    Danielle was a pleasure to work with! I'm a local planner and I'm used to having an assistant from my team for the big day. For the wedding at NCS, it was a little smaller so I worked it solo. Danielle was a God send and I couldn't have done it without her! She not only served as the venue contact, and assisted the catering team, but she also assisted me and picked up any slack. She went above and beyond, and I cannot thank her enough! NCS is such a quaint venue that all couples should check out, religious or not. It's perfect for a smaller affair and has views and nooks for pictures galore!

    Amazing from start to finish

    Our experience with Danielle and the whole NCS team was amazing from start to finish. Danielle was incredibly organized and proactive about sorting out details and working with our other vendors. We couldn't have asked for an smoother or more enjoyable experience, honestly.
