We had the BEST experience working with The Penny. It is such a beautiful and unique event space in the Central Coast. The staff was so kind and easy to work with. They were incredibly responsive and worked hard to make the event run seamlessly and make our vision come to life. They offer a variety of amazing vendors and coordinate with them to get everything set up smoothly. It was such a great experience working alongside everyone at The Penny and I would highly recommend using them for your next event!Sent on 12/12/2019
