    I fell in love with the Thelma the minute I parked the car. It is undeniable the sheer beauty of the Thelma, from the modern art galleries to the old architectural details in the Great Hall and Fountain City Room. We loved working with Jacqui and Jessica, but there are a few things I'd like to highlight in my review:

    1) If you're having your wedding anywhere near Christmas (before or after), be aware that there are significant charges to relocate any Christmas decorations in the venue.
    2) If my guests had one complaint for the evening, it would be that the bartenders tended to be a little short with them. Not the most chipper or respectful of bartenders they've met in their lives.
    3) In the planning stages, I wish I would have taken more notes myself. Seemingly, the Thelma staff would be taking notes, but I'd find myself repeating things over and over each time we met. No biggie. All was fine, just a bit frustrating.

    Everything else was superb. Truly. All my guests were immediately impressed and my pictures are glorious with the Thelma as a backdrop.

    Thank you for everything.

    Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts's reply:

    Cassie's wedding at THELMA was beautiful and we loved working with her. We apologize if the bartenders were not respectful. We certainly strive on providing the highest level of service. Regarding the holiday decorations, we were merely charging what the company which installed the decorations charged to remove and then set them up again. We have holiday parties through January so the decorations are up for a bit. And finally, in Cassie's first meeting she was with a sales person who then hands off the event an Events Coordinator. All notes were passed on, however, it is very rare that all decisions are made in that first sales meeting. Thanks for the input!
