    My overall experience was good. The ballroom is amazing and the food is great. Their service was good, but I wish they would do a better job at explaining all the aspects and timeline better. If you don't ask, it won't be explained to you. Make sure you read the contract very carefully and that the price won't change for the year that your wedding takes place verses when you sign the contract. Mine did. We eventually got our original price, but it was another stressor that we hadn't expected that we had to take care of.

    Beautiful venue for the price! However, u are only provided chairs and not guarenteed sound (double check). Also, there is no real privacy....strangers love weddings too.

    This was a great place to have a wedding. The Prado matched our expectations. The food was great, everybody liked every dish and the facilities structured helped with the logistics.

    For the ceremony they have a great patio Spanish style, surrounded by flowers with a center fountain, the rain didn't help but it was great otherwise.

    Absolutely great location, but the price tag was very high for what was provided.

    Overall, delicious. They are a bit spendy and they don't have a lot of flexibility but we really enjoyed it.
