    What a Great Wedding at the Fawcett Center!

    I would highly recommend the Fawcett center for many reasons.
    The first would be the staff, everyone was so friendly and eager to help make sure we had the best wedding especially Nicole our Event Manager. She was great to work with. Nicole really wants you to have the best wedding.2nd was the food it was amazing. We are still getting compliments on the food and venue months later.
    Thank you Fawcett center staff!

    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!

    Thank you Alison! We loved hosting your wedding and hope to see you and Chuck again soon!
