LOVED this venue!

Had my wedding here in August 2023. Pfister event manager, Emily, helped me every step of the way! The staff went above and beyond and made us feel like family. Not only did our big day feel like a looked like one too. The atmosphere of the Pfister is absolutely gorgeous!! Food was delicious, service was great, & the rooms were perfect. 100% reccomend this venue!

The Pfister Hotel for wedding reception

Working with The Pfister Hotel and having our wedding reception there was an absolute dream! I do not think words can adequately describe how amazing planning our wedding was, and then how unbelievable the actual wedding turned out. Amanda was our Event Manager and she was the best person to work with. She was responsive and on top of everything during every second of the planning process and actual reception. I felt like we were in the best hands and our wedding was everything I had dreamed it would be. The food was exactly how it tasted during the tasting a few months before, which was great. The cocktail hour was spacious and so nice. Our reception was in the Grand Ballroom and it was gorgeous. The dance floor was a great size, the room held all of our tables, two bars, and a stage of the band. The service staff for the night was so kind- they even brought me a brand new plate because mine was cold when I sat down to eat after saying hi to people. Amanda made sure everything was perfect. She worked with all the vendors the day of to make sure everyone was able to access the ballroom and set up properly. I could not imagine having our wedding anywhere else. The whole weekend we were at The Pfister we felt so valued and it added to our excitement. Double bonus- they are a dog-friendly hotel so our dog was able to enjoy the weekend with us and the whole staff was so happy to have him there! It was truly the best experience!
