We were so pleased we chose Founders Hall for our reception. Khaki was a breeze to work with and Frank (head chef, Aria) works magic in the kitchen! They worked with us every step of the way and were on call whenever we needed them. Khaki is organized and excellent at what she does. Frank served delicious food to 400 people, including cocktail hour, a 5 course meal and dessert hour. Our 6 hour reception went by too quickly! We loved working with the team at Founders Hall and will always remember our magical wedding weekend!

We have mixed feelings about our overall experience with Founders Hall. The space itself is beautiful and chivari chairs are included in your rental price which is a huge perk. The indoor trees, marble flooring and soaring ceiling make a beautiful backdrop to many different wedding feels. The food and day-of wait staff provided by the mandatory caterer (Aria restaurant) were incredible. The food all tasted amazing! Working with Aria leading up to our day was much more stressful that I would have hoped. They lost our food order, tried to pass other dishes that we didn't like off on us and were at times a bit rude with us. However, they did give us several more rounds of tastings to try to re-discover the dishes we loved at our first tasting after they forgot the original dishes we had agreed on. They also worked with us to specialize a few bar options and incorporate service details we wanted. They could have been a bit more organized in their process (i.e. they kept giving us dishes with mushrooms to try after we specifically asked for no mushrooms, they gave us a chicken dish to try that was exactly our salad course that we already agreed on with the addition of a chicken breast), but in the end came through with a great day of staff and perfectly cooked dishes. I would in the end recommend this vendor to a friend, but would also recommend that that person keep specific and detailed records of exactly the food they want (like literally down to the tiniest detail of what sauces, garnishes, sides, mains, etc that they liked at their tasting), exactly the price that was agreed on and so forth just to make sure nothing gets lost over time.
