We worked with Erin Borcherding for our wedding/reception and she was spectacular, very easy to work with, accommodating to all our needs, and on top of everything! We were in the Alexandria room on the lower floor. It was beautiful with it's new ceiling! Everything went off without an issue and the staff was awesome. One-World was the caterer for the reception and it was yummy! Erin was there the entire time and did a wonderful job as our wedding coordinator! I would highly recommend The Packard and its staff for any event, just a pleasure to work with!

The event coordinator was so easy to work with! She helped make the day run as smooth as possible! We were very pleased with the Packard and how wonderful our reception turned out to be. Highly recommended.

This is a beautiful venue for a reception. Me and my husband got married on July 26, 2014 and used the Packard's ballroom as our reception space. We were so pleased with the services they provided and the great communication throughout the entire process. Our coordinator was amazing and was a huge part of making this successfully our dream wedding with much ease. My husband and I didn't have to worry about anything. All the vendors we choose for decorator, cake, DJ, etc. all said working with the Packard on set up and tear down was seamless. The majority of our guests were traveling from out of state and when we were talking to them the day after they were all impressed with how good the food was for being plated and served, the staff was very kind to everyone and how everything just flowed nicely. No one received cold dishes or had to wait an extended period of time to be served. I recommend this place to anyone looking for an amazing place to hold their reception. They make sure you and all your guests have a wonderful time making memories that last a lifetime.

When we started out with the Packard, they were very accommodating and answered questions quickly. However, it was hard to work with them from where we were living for school. Also, when my mother had many questions, she seemed to be annoyed. We were caught off guard a few months before the wedding, finding out we had to set everything up for our reception the morning of, because they booked a wedding that Friday. Still, the room is absolutely gorgeous, and fit my theme quite nicely. The food was great, and everyone we invited complimented the food over and over.

The Packard was great -- beautiful space, really flexible and open to setting up the space how you want, and Erin was awesome to work with! The reception was beautiful and went off without a hitch! Except, of course, that my husband and I were hitched ;)

The Packard was great to work with! They were accommodating with food not on their list. They were always willing to work with other vendors. They were up front with things that may have been an issue. The Packard is a great venue with character. The service was great, timely, helpful, and friendly. The dance floor is large!

We are so happy we had our wedding at the Packard! Everything was perfect and they were extremely accommodating to our needs. We wanted to have gluten free food and they worked diligently with us to make sure the food was just right and went way out of their way to make us happy. Erin, the planner there, was very punctual and lovely to work with. Our day went wonderfully and we are so happy we chose the Packard!
