Andrea is the best out there! No doubt! No question! Not up for debate! She made our big day so wonderfully perfect and smooth! Even when my husband's father was late she kept her cool and everything flowed just fine! She is beyond the sweetest person and I wouldn't wanted to have been any other wedding coordinator's bride! My husband and I were beyond thrilled and pleased with our big day! If we could do it all over again, I promise it would be at Stage 1 hands down every time! The only thing we would ever change is make our wedding like 3 hours longer because we had so much fun it went by incredibly too fast! We stepped in the hall while looking for locations and immediately knew this was our wedding place! Also best value in town! Can't be Andrea at Stage 1! I promise she'll make your wedding everything you've dreamed of and more! ❤Sent on 08/14/2019
Stage 1 Catering's reply:Lauren, You, Zach, and Grandma Linda were the best! It was my pleasure making your day a little less stress free. Watching you Zach practice your 1st dance made me cry. You two were such perfectionist that it made me giggle as well... LOVED every moment. Thank you for making us your choice for your wedding/reception.
Stage 1 is an Ambrosia favorite! Beautiful location, amazing reception area for your event and the owner Andrea is always a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!
