Walking into the event center (when still looking for a venue) I was extremely impressed with venue as well as the representatives professionalism, helpfulness, kindness and willingness to make everything work for us just how we wanted it. They really went above and beyond for all of our requests and last minute ideas. On the big day everything looked amazing! The wait staff that served us were very kind and professional. Working with the event center truly made our lives a little easier for our big day!Sent on 12/23/2014
