    Amazing customer service

    Abby and Katie were attentive and informative while I was researching venues. I appreciate the care they took to go out of their way to provide a video tour of the space when the Covid pandemic began. They were great to work with!

    Perfect in every way

    Frazier was a dream come true! We are so happy we picked it as our wedding venue both for our ceremony & reception. It all flowed so perfect and that was all thanks to Frazier! The staff was very helpful & so nice to work with. They make it easy for you and what’s better than that when planning a wedding. Plus the venue is freaking beautiful. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
