Fantastic Wedding Reception Venue
Penn Wells did a wonderful job with my wedding reception for an excellent price. They do not charge you to use their venue if you use their catering services - all you pay for is food, drinks and a small fee to have the dance floor set up. Jackie works with you to make sure everything is exactly the way you want it to be. When we were planning our wedding, my husband was living in Virginia and I was living in North Carolina. She was very accommodating with meeting us when we were in town and communicating via email and phone calls. There was plenty of space for guests to wait in the lobby before the reception and enjoy some appetizers. In the reception hall, the space easily held our 100 guests, as well as the dance floor, space for our jazz band, tables for the cake and gifts, and the bar. We met with Jackie just a few times before the wedding and had all the details ironed out before our wedding day. It was amazing just being able to show up to our wedding reception and not having to worry about a thing in terms of set up or other vendors dropping things off (cake, flowers). The building itself is beautiful and our photographer took some awesome pictures of us around the hotel. They will also put your name on the marquis down the street, which is amazing. If you're looking for a beautiful reception venue with staff that is amazing to work with, book Penn Wells.Sent on 11/09/2018
Side note - Jackie knows a woman who makes amazing wedding cakes for a very reasonable price, and she ended up making our wedding cake.
