    Absolutely Amazing!

    The venue is beautiful! Elegant and timeless! The staff is incredibly helpful, from planning, through the big night! Our daughter's wedding was perfect. The Staff was so helpful! They were even available the Monday morning after the wedding to help me load up our decorations! I highly recommend the High Five!

    The High Five GR's reply:

    Liz, thank you so much for your kind words. It was so wonderful to have your Daughter's big day at our venue. Thank you again for letting us be apart of the wedding, you were a joy to work with.

    The best venue choice!

    The High Five was amazing throughout the entire process. From the time we booked with them, through planning, the rehearsal, and the day of the wedding. We were so impressed by their quick responses! They were more than happy to jump on a phone call if we needed it and were willing to give their opinions when asked! Even through covid they made sure to keep up communication. The venue itself is beautiful and we got compliments all night! Plus they coordinated with all of our vendors when to show up so it's one less thing you have to worry about. I cannot talk enough about how beautiful and perfect our day was thanks to the High Five. I wish we could relive this day over and over again.
