No one compares to them from the customer service to the overall experience!

    Best place to have a wedding

    First of all planning a wedding is very stressful but booking the venue Fort Lauderdale made things soooo much easier. You will never meet a coordinator that is as awesome as Roby. He is also the owner so that made things even more smoother. Each time I freaked out he calms me down and everything I needed he helped me find. He call and texts you to make sure you are good. He was even my flower girl when my flower girl froze up halfway down the aisle lol . He made my wedding day go soooo smoothly that I only focused on having fun. His entire staff literally caters to you and what you want.I am soo satisfied and definitely recommend the Venue Fort Lauderdale for wedding an any other event honestly.
