    most memorable and smooth wedding experience!

    couldn’t have asked for a better vendor/venue to celebrate our wedding ceremony! NIU and specifically, Gina Kenyon, made the entire experience of having a COVID wedding super smooth, memorable and super enjoyable. it truly wouldn’t have been possible without her help!

    we hosted a 3-day indian wedding at NIU in late august. with COVID, it was becoming super stressful planning our events and figuring out the logistics. but gina, made it all possible.
    my family and i want to express our deepest gratitude for all their efforts, support and help. I really believe that the events wouldn't have been as amazing as they were if it weren't for the NIU staff, especially Gina!! Every single person who attended was super impressed and pleasantly surprised on how well everything was organized from the NIU side - they were extremely impressed with how much help and effort she showed throughout the festivities. We cannot thank her enough for everything she did -- whether its waking up super early to accommodate my hair and make up or letting the caterers in, setting up the rooms well in advance along with the centerpieces, super quick tear downs and getting ready for the next event, and just overall flexibility with last minute changes and requests - not once did i hear a "no" from her in anything we requested. I am super appreciative of that and it just made the whole process very smooth and reliving for us! our sincerest thank you!
