    Ashley was amazing and I had zero stress on the day of my wedding because she made sure everything was taken care of. Besides that, The Edison staff in general was amazing and so helpful.

    We hade the ceremony and the reception both at the Edison, and they made our entire wedding possible. We had a number of extenuating circumstances the month before our wedding which made it difficult to really concentrate on the wedding and all the details around it. We trusted Mike and Ashley and they literally put it all together; we just had to show up. The venue is so beautiful that we really didn't have to worry much about decorations. The team was so helpful they might as well have been our wedding planners. The food was delicious and the drinks never ended. The band set up was epic, and everyone enjoyed dancing outside. To say we got every pennies worth out of this venue would be an understatement. I cannot recommend this venue, team, location, etc., enough. They made this big day possible.
