    My husband and I could not be happier to have hosted our wedding reception at the Fetzer Center. We met while attending WMU so it was the perfect place to celebrate our marriage. I could go on for pages and pages about how wonderful it was having our wedding at Fetzer, so I'll try to keep it short. Shannon and Todd and the whole team were absolutely incredible. They were so flexible with what we wanted and accommodated almost every request we made, but were also completely realistic when tempering our expectations. The space was beautiful and the perfect size. The outdoor deck space was lovely and a great place to gather away from the music. And can we talk about the FOOD?? We were getting comments the whole night about how amazing the food was. It came out piping hot and was so delicious. The mini desserts were exactly what we wanted and the late-night sliders were a total hit. Todd got creative designing a signature drink for us and it was so popular the bartenders actually ran out of the ingredients! It was such an amazing evening and I could not be more grateful to the whole team at Fetzer for helping us create our dream wedding. I really think this venue is Kalamazoo's greatest hidden treasure! THANK YOU so much for everything!!!
