    A M A Z I N G !!!!!!!!!!!

    I honestly don't even know where to start, but let's just say look no further!!! Upper Shirley's exceeded any and all of my expectations, which were very high! We are from Baltimore so wanted to ensure we set the bar high given 95% of our guests were from out of town, and we have received sooo many compliments on how beautiful the venue was, how amazing and delicious the food and wine were, etc. This venue is worth every penny and the food is literally to die for!!!!!!!! Catherine was so professional, knowledgeable and excellent to work with from the beginning and made the entire experience; walk through(s), tastings, payments, last minute arrangements, etc. so seamless. She is a true event professional and the USV staff and service for our wedding was above stellar!!! USV made my wedding absolutely perfect (from arriving, to the amazing bridal suite and grooms den service, to the cocktail hour, dinner, etc.) and I would recommend to anyone and everyone- the experience is truly like none other- 10 STARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
