    Absolutely perfect

    This was the wedding of my dreams. Megan Gurba and the staff was so friendly and helpful in making it a special day for us. None of the guests wanted to leave! Everything was perfect, the ceremony and reception was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the staff was accommodating and professional. I couldn't ask for more. All in all, I highly recommend Ruth Eckerd Hall for your next wedding or upcoming event.

    Incredible Wedding

    My wife and I had THE BEST DAY! They were so helpful with everything. Coordinating the colors, tasting and selecting the food (which had rave reviews by our guests), scheduling around our busy schedules, doing the rehearsal on short notice and helping pull it all together. Thank you for giving my wife a Grand Reveal during the ceremony they drew back the curtain and helped coordinate the music so she felt and looked like a princess. It was perfect. We all stayed to the very end nobody wanted to leave. I couldn't be more thankful to Megan Gurba. She was so accommodating and helpful. The staff helped me make the trellis the day of the wedding. My best man and i were sweating on the balcony the day of the ceremony and the staff came over to help us.
    They let us take pictures in the theater and in front of the venue. It was perfect. The bartenders took great care of us. It was a night I'll never forget and a night i wish could have lasted forever.
