I cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience with Union League Cafe. The staff walked my husband & I through the planning process, they were always ready to answer our questions, they suggested reliable vendors (who were amazing), and they handled all day-of issues so smoothly. Any anxiety I thought I would have concerning planning was unnecessary and quickly dissipated because Union League handled each and every detail so well. From easy wheelchair accessibility for our guests to letting our photographer know the best locales for photos around the neighborhood, we felt so taken care of. The atmosphere, the cuisine-- all of it was stellar. The waitstaff was lovely, our entire menu was so delicious-- every detail was just superb. We have received many compliments on our wedding (including from some notoriously hard to please family members!), and I know all the credit goes to Christina, Rachel and the entire staff. It's such an incredibly beautiful venue with an unparalleled menu-- it was the only venue we ever seriously considered, and my husband & I are so grateful to everyone there. It was just a dream, and we are so thankful to everyone at Union League Cafe for all their hard work!

We just had the pleasure of celebrating our daughter’s wedding at Union League Café this past Saturday. Needless to say, it was a spectacular night; the setting was elegant, the food was delicious, and the staff was courteous and competent. This is specifically let you know our thoughts regarding the exceptional work of Mrs. Christina FitzGerald.

From the first day we met her, we recognized that she has a mastery of her trade. She was the epitome of professionalism and embodied the kind of elegance that we wanted to bring to our event. Throughout the entire process--almost a year--she was always available, timely and meticulous. Following our tasting dinner, she took all of our suggestions and clearly incorporated them into the final dinner. She successfully coordinated multiple vendors and handled all last-minute unexpected occurrences. Her presence throughout the night (along with the others who worked that evening) helped the event flow flawlessly. Even after all was said and done, when we wanted to meet to discuss our final bill, we had the sense that she would be there for our family in the future if there was any request we might have from her. Her very being was a comfort to us--she has a way of making people feel welcomed, at ease and very well taken care of. Additionally, her personal investment in the happiness of our daughter and son-in-law was palpable and very much appreciated.

In closing, we would like to thank you for bringing together such an amazing team. We will have no hesitation in reaching out to you if our next daughter ever decides to get married!
