    Our wedding was absolutely amazing and fun. The reception area was decorated beautifully, way beyond our expectations. Vicky was with us every step of the way, she's absolutely amazing to work with. I could not be happier with how the whole evening went.

    Vicky and the casino were absolutely amazing. Everything was first class. I could not imagine having our reception anywhere else. Everyone states the reception was truly amazing. They were very easy to work with and literally do EVERYTHING for the bride and groom. Food and service were exceptional. They are truly worth every penny!

    The Casino, and specifically, Vicky, are AMAZING! They surpassed all expectations of my husband and I and really did an excellent job with everything! There are many different tiers to chose from so that you are able to get what you want and still be able to afford it. I did not realize all of the potential "headaches" associated with planning a wedding/reception until we started, however, I didn't need to worry about any of them because Vicky took care of everything! You literally drop off all of your decorations a day or two before the reception, and when you show up, it is all set up! They also break everything down for you and you just pick it up a few days after--and this is all included in your package!! They gave us the food that was left over when people didn't show up (I've never heard of places doing that), and they have a wonderful vendor recommendation list that makes things so much easier! My husband and I originally grew up in the area, but have since moved away, so planning the reception from hours away was no problem at all with Vicky at our side! The staff are all generally nice, caring, sweet people and we never at any point felt pressured or guilted into anything. We have gotten endless compliments from family and friends on the food, the service (the waitresses/waiters are impeccably dressed and are very professional), the overall "flow" of the evening, and just the beauty of the venue itself!! We owe our FLAWLESS reception all to Vicky and the staff at The Casino and can't thank them enough for our perfect reception!!

The Casino is one of my favorite venues to work with for wedding receptions. They have beautiful reception areas, wonderful staff to work with and the food is amazing. Chef Terry makes the most gorgeous cakes that taste delicious. I've been photographing weddings at the Casino for many years and it's always a joy to return - like seeing old friends.
