    My wife and I have selected this venue for our wedding this past weekend and it was such an amazing experience. Arthur and Lorraine helped us throughout all of the planning and made our wedding day a beautiful memory. The staff was amazing and was so kind. The food was out of this world and was so delicious and the venue itself is spacious and great for any family event. Chose this place for your next wedding!

    Nothing Short of Amazing

    wish I could give this venue more than 5 stars. We had our wedding here this past Saturday 4/10/2021 and had the most amazing and perfect day! We originally had planned a fall 2020 wedding but due to covid had to postpone and change venues. I found The Brookside Banquets, and immediately emailed Arthur to see if they could accommodate our smaller wedding. He did that and so much more, no questions asked! Arthur and Lorraine were there every step of the way to make our day amazing. From the food, to the beautiful venue, to their warm Hospitality and answering any question I had, they truly made our day so amazing. I could never thank them enough for accommodating us. The venue speaks for itself, as it truly is so beautiful. Our guests were commenting all night on how perfect our space was, from the grand ballroom to the decor and ceremony space. They loved every aspect of our more intimate wedding, and I truly cannot thank Arthur, Lorraine, and Silvette (our bridal suite attendant) enough. You all are absolute angels. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you. -Krystal & Alexis
