Above and Beyond

I booked The Famous Venue for my ceremony and reception and I was able to provide all you can drink as well as plated dinners for my guests without breaking my budget. Teddy even went above and beyond and made us a custom monogram for the projector screen to display behind us. The Famous Venue is a newer wedding venue but they are not new to customer service or hospitality! I couldn't imagine my day being any more perfect than they made it.
