Amazing venue and team
My husband and I recently got married at Noor in December 2019, and we can't be more happy we did. The moment we made contact to tour the venue to the very end we were met with the best service and care. Bridget Ann, Maria, Miranda, and the rest of the team were amazing. Our guests talked about how much they loved the venue and food! We chose the Sofia ballroom and ended up doing our ceremony indoors due to rain and it was still beautiful.Sent on 01/04/2020
Miranda our event manager, I could not rave and thank her enough for all her work with us when we had a few crisis moments leading up to our wedding. She went above and beyond and was quick to answer our questions.
I would highly recommend NOOR and am so grateful they made our day so special!

Amazing!! Thank you so much!
The NOOR Team and Venue are fantastic and words can't express our gratitude for their help throughout the whole wedding from start to end.Sent on 03/15/2020
Bridget Ann, Miranda and the whole events team were amazing and so, so accommodating. They always went the extra mile and provided tons of insight and feedback which was especially helpful for my indecisive wife.
Our guests all loved the food and couldn't help but rave about the venue - seriously, the pictures don't do it justice. We're so glad we walked in and checked it out because it's so beautiful and requires minimal decoration.
Thank you so much for everything!

Our Forever Story
It actually didn't take us much to decide on Noor as our venue. We had done all the research and really only had 3 venues in mind that we wanted to see. Noor was are 2nd location to visit and as soon as we had met with the owner and coordinators at Noor, we had no need to even look at the 3rd venue. We fell in love with everything about the venue! From all the interior decoration, floor plan, ceremony area, menu, but mostly our corrdinator was very accommodating in what we were comfortable with our budget and what options Noor could provide for us. The food was all so good, we are so glad that we went with the deluxe duo selections. Our guest all complimented on the venue and they were all very surprised how yummy all the food was, because most wedding venue food options are typical mediocre quality. Everyone left very full and couldn't stop talking about the food selections and of course the full bar options as well. We had our ceremony outside by the fountains and loved the closed off curtains because it made the ceremony very intimate. We are so happy we chose team Noor! Thank you team for giving us the best experience and so happy that we can tell people that our Forever Story began at Noor.Sent on 12/26/2019

I had a pleasure to work with Noor venue couple of weeks ago. The entire team at Noor are fantastic. From the top down they truly run an event proving how much they care about the day of, and the enjoyment of the brides and grooms.

Thank you Amin for all your help love working there and with you, and always looking forward to the next one!
