An Elegant Venue with Flexibility
Our wedding reception was at the STEM Atrium in likely the last wedding before this period of postponements. It was an incredibly stressful time as things were changing daily, but the onsite coordinators were so helpful. We did not hire our own personal wedding coordinator, and they even helped to set up our centerpieces. Everything went so smoothly during a time of great anxiety and angst. We can't wait to see how it photographs, but even from the photos we received from our friends and family, we know we won't be disappointed. In this time of venues being very exclusive with their vendors, we really appreciated the ability to customize our catering and alcohol to meet our budget needs.Sent on 03/24/2020
