From the first moment our family engaged with Michelle Finley , to the end of the wedding event , it was a fabulous experience. Just a beautiful venue , with outstanding food and service. Michelle and the Union Trust team ( Dave , our host during the rehearsal and wedding was so helpful ) were a pleasure to work with , and we received many compliments from our friends and family who attended. The attention given in the planning , and during the wedding by the Finley Catering and Union Trust staff was truly exceptional, and well beyond our exceptions.Sent on 10/04/2014

Everything was beyond perfect!
We had our wedding at Union Trust Ballroom on 3/15/19. I can not express how amazing it was, everything down to the last detail was perfect and I didn’t have to worry about a thing. I don’t even know where to begin because it was flawless. Prior to the wedding Kathryn was so responsive and helped with every single stupid question I could come up with. The day of the wedding was beyond perfect and Thomas runs everything like a well-oiled machine. My husband and I didn’t have to worry about a single thing and were able to enjoy the time with our guests. We were never without a full drink in our hands and they were so attentive to our families and guests as well. Almost every single guest has called/ texted/ commented on the amazing food and how everything was just beyond perfect. I am so glad we chose Union Trust for our wedding, the venue, food and staff were wonderful!!!Sent on 03/27/2019

Breathtaking Venue + Spectacular Service & Team!
Our wedding was on March 8, 2019. Words cannot express how amazing this venue is OR how amazing the team at Finley Catering is, truly!Sent on 04/04/2019
We worked with Stacey and she was so attentive, responsive and helpful throughout the planning process. From our initial meeting, to our menu meeting, even to the day of the wedding. I loved being able to reach out to her with any questions of how the day and night might work, to see what we can do or add into our wedding experience and more. Not only was Stacey amazing but the team she works with at Union Trust were perfect.
Thomas and Lisa truly made us feel like we were with family and really helping to move our day and night along. They were just as attentive and always checking in on us. Lisa saved me many times that day from helping my girls bustle me, to helping with the veil and more. The venue is breathtaking and this team knows how to make all of your wedding dreams come to life. The food was great, so many different options for cocktail hour. The cocktails were perfect! Our guests are still commenting on the venue and experience even a month later!
Great Venue, Stunning surroundings great to work with
Very easy to work with, and very organized with the planning. One of the most popular sites to perform at. Would recommend to anyone looking for a venue for their wedding or event!
