We used the Fezter center for our June wedding reception. From the very start, we really liked everyone there, especially our wedding coordinator Stacy. Stacy was so friendly and easy to work with, not to mention very professional. She was very accommodating. I had some last minute changes I wanted and she was able to make it happen for us! The staff there is very friendly and professional. Everyone there made our wedding day special and everything ran so smoothly. We were very pleased with them and would recommend them to anyone for any event! Great place, thank you Stacy and staff for making our wedding day a great one!Sent on 06/18/2019
