Wendi was so fun to work with. We are both widowed high school sweethearts who re-connected through facebook and friends. We wanted a night of just fun and celebrating. Wendi and her team had our backs all the way. The site was draped in white with lights and looked like a fairy tale. We had asked Wendi for recommendations on catering and DJ. We got the BEST of both. Our guests have done nothing but rave about how much fun they had. We had zero headaches and 100% fun. All in all, being at Gillespie Center was the best decision we made next to marrying each other!Sent on 10/16/2017

I am really glad that I chose the Gillespie center for out reception. The venue can be transformed into an amazing room (I suggest getting it draped)! Wendie was so nice and easy to work with, my husband and I loved having the reception here.Sent on 12/18/2016

We loved working with the Gillespie Center for our daughter's wedding reception. The center is beautiful, the administrator was very helpful with suggestions and creative ideas and gave us quality service. Communication is very important and we got calls back right away when we had questions. The cost to rent the center is very comparable to anything else available and therefore the value was cost effective for us. Location is easy to find and the wildlife area is visible with windows all across the room. We loved it!Sent on 04/30/2009
