Traditions at the Glen was such an amazing setting for my bridal shower, our rehearsal dinner and wedding reception. Our reception was everything I could have imagined and more. We would not have changed a thing! Everyone there went above and beyond for Jeremy and I, especially Jami, and we are very happy we chose Traditions. Would highly recommend this venue to others!

The staff at Teaditions is amazing! They responded usually within minutes to my ridiculous emails and were willing to work with me to create my dream wedding. When my mother was unexpectedly placed in a wheelchair, the sales manager was willing to meet with me unscheduled and figure out a plan. The banquet manager was on hand through out the night. The food is also superb!!

I planned my entire wedding from Shanghai, and I cannot say how amazing my experience in dealing with Traditions at the Glen was!!! Being that I wasn't even in the same country, I wasn't sure what to expect, but Traditions really knocked my socks off with the level of service that they provided me. They are truly an all-in-one wedding experience with their fabulous level of professionalism and their amazing thoughtful staff members. Even things that I would have never thought of they took care for me, and they did it all so I could have a perfect & fabulous wedding day with my family and friends that was completely worry-free! I've been to a lot of my friends' weddings, and I have to say, my experience with Traditions at the Glen blew everybody else's out of the water. Thanks for making my wedding so memorable & picture perfect - my husband and I can't thank you enough from the bottom of our hearts for providing us with the best day of our lives!
