Could not have asked for a better wedding day! Elizabeth made planning very enjoyable and so easy. Very accommodating to what the bride and groom envision for their wedding day and works with your budget. The venue is breathtaking, I highly recommend The Lancaster at St. Clair!!

Robbie and Elizabeth have been great to work with. Sara, Executive Chef, was so accommodating at our tasting. I would just tell others looking at the venue to feel open to ask for changes and express what they want. Originally, the cost of the rental was too much for us; so, we asked Robbie to work with us for a time which was less expensive. I believe I could have decreased some costs if I had used local caterers, bakery and florists. But, the convenience of having it all coordinated through Elizabeth is well worth the extra expense. I have full faith that Michaelis Events will make everything fabulous.
