    My wedding reception was at The Fawcett Event Center and it was an incredible night! The space was decorated amazingly, the staff was incredibly professional, and the food was delicious (family and friends still talk about it!) My event coordinator was Nicole Ewing and she managed the event flawlessly! She was attentive to all of our needs on our wedding day and every day leading up to the event. There was a lot of last-minute craziness the week of our wedding, and Nicole was flexible and understanding through it all. I recommend this venue and the wonderful staff for any event!
