    From the moment we met with Katie, we were very impressed! She was so friendly and very knowledgeable. We knew walking out that we wanted to have our wedding reception here. Even though the initial date we wanted had been taken, we were able to change the date so that we could have our reception at the Pinnacle Club! I know that everything will be great because Katie is awesome and has been very helpful from the very beginning! So excited to have our reception here!!

    I've been working with Katie Thielman at the Pinnacle Club and she is absolutely 100% fabulous to work with! She is so extremely flexible and helpful and responds within minutes if you email her. I feel as though I'm kind of a pain to work with because I plan way in advance and think about anything that could possibly go wrong and because of this (I'm not exaggerating), I've probably emailed Katie over 50 times and every time, she is super helpful and never makes me feel bad about any of the questions I'm asking (sometimes with people you can feel as though you're annoying them or you're wasting their time, but with Katie, that's not the case). Absolutely everything about this place is wonderful! We have not actually had our reception there yet, but I'm not worried at all because as long as Katie is there, everything will be perfect!
