    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!!!

    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!

    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!
