I have nothing negative to say about the Abernethy Center. Not going to lie, it's not cheap, but it was worth every penny. I really appreciated the military discount. I started working with Laura from the day we booked the venue to the week of the wedding (over a year time frame) and she was the absolute best. I probably asked her literally a thousand questions and e-mailed her a bunch but she was always patient with me and always got back to me. At the rehearsal and the day of the wedding, we worked with Amy who was also super Awesome :] Her and my coordinator worked very well together. The chapel and the ballroom were extremely beautiful and elegant. The staff, every single person, the coat check, servers, etc, were all polite, professional, just excellent all around. The food was AMAZING. It's like the kind of food you get at 5 star restaurants. I got the "silver birch" table runners that looked amazing with my winter theme. The lighting was perfect. It was nice that they had a projector and screen built into the ceiling, one less thing to worry about. They made sure everything flowed smoothly and went according to the timeline. I don't know what else to say, everything was just perfect.

I can not put into words how amazing this place is! I have been working with Elizabeth for 18 months and she is an amazing person. She made everyone of my dreams come true. The whole wedding had not one flaw! The servers during the day were amazing. The food was wonderful. The decorations and cleanness of the place was great. Everyone is so nice! I couldn't have imagined my wedding any other place. They gave us all our dreams!

We had our wedding at Abernethy Center, and I could not be more pleased. The site is gorgeous and they have everything you could want for a spectacular day. Want a gorgeous garden? They've got two. A quaint Chapel? Check. An elegant ballroom? Got it. An amazing venue that people are still talking about? Abernethy Center is the place!
We wanted an elegant and sophisticated wedding, and the various settings with the Chapel ceremony, cocktail hour in the Veiled Garden, and dinner and dancing in the Ballroom gave us exactly what we wanted.

Here are my top 10 favorite things:

10. The Chapel -- from the front with the picture-perfect steps and steeple to the backdrop of the gorgeous trees behind the windows of the Chapel.

9. The Chapel bell ringing at the end of the ceremony.

8. The lush garden setting which gave a gorgeous variety of settings for our photographs and then a perfect setting for our cocktail party.

7. The elegant ballroom with marble entry, expandability, and great dance floor.

6. The food.
5. The food.
4. The food. I'm not just using up numbers here; it's really that good. All of our guests are still raving about it. It was "the quality you'd expect at a top-notch restaurant, not a wedding venue" was what we've heard said many times.

3. The extraordinary level of service. They were top-notch in all aspects throughout the planning process and the wedding.

2. The staff. Every member of the staff was fantastic. From the planning to the rehearsal to the ceremony to the party, every member of the staff that we interacted with was extraordinarily professional and helpful.

And #1:
Our wedding! No one had a better time that day than me, the bride. I don't know how many people can say that, or that they truly enjoyed every aspect of planning and working with their vendors, or that they can't find anything that they would want to change on the wedding day. I count myself very lucky to be able to say all those things, and it's because of Abernethy Center.

Elizabeth was the best event specialist a bride could ask for! She was very responsive, kind and patient (despite the barrage of last minute emails I sent her about the wedding details)! She made sure our priorities were achieved within the budget we had set and the food and setting were fantastic. Everything about our wedding at Abernethy Center's Veiled Garden and Ballroom went exactly as I dreamed. The staff was extremely professional, met all our expectations and provided us a day we'll never forget! It was especially meaningful to be married in the garden where my fiancé proposed one year ago. Abernethy Center will always have a special place in our lives and I would highly recommend future brides have their special day here, too.

Abernethy and the staff were beyond amazing. From the pre planning with Laura to the day of coordination with Amy everything was flawless. Laura made the planning portion so fun and easy to follow. She was always prompt with her responses and quick to answer any questions we had. Amy was on point with the day of coordination and made everything flow so smoothly with absolutely no hiccups! Our guests raved about the food, service, and overall ambiance in Abigail’s garden. I highly recommend any future couples to Abernethy Center!

I got married 6 months ago at the Abernethy Center in Abigail's Garden. My Event Specialist was Laura and she was absolutely the best to work with through the whole wedding planning process and it definitely was the best day of my life! Laura is the most nicest person and definitely reassures you that your wedding day will be great and I would definitely recommend her to anyone that is getting married at the Abernethy Center. On my wedding day my wedding officiant was 45 minutes late and my day of coordinator Amy, made me feel at ease and not to worry that everything would be ok. Amy had the caterers serve my guests appetizers and wine before the ceremony while we waited on the wedding officiant and after the wedding my guests told me how well that all worked out and I was so happy everyone was pleased and I can't thank the Abernethy Center enough for making those changes to make my guests happy while we waited on the wedding officiant. Overall having my wedding at the Abernethy Center was a great decision and I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone!!!
