We were very excitied to have our wedding reception with this vendor. However, the week we got married our wedding planner was out of town. We were reassured that everything we had wanted for our big day would be passed on to those who would be setting up the reception hall. When we got there the ceiling treatment was NOT ANYTHING like the picture they had showed us. The kids table we had requested was no where to be found. The vases were not what we had been shown/ordered and therefore our flowers did not fit into them. There was very minimal decorations in the hall itself. The tablecloths were MOSTLY all the same color but I had to request that they change out those that were off colored. When I approached the manager about the fact that these details were not what had been discussed he proceeded to tell me how long he had worked on everything and tried to rationalize why things were the way they were. My sister-in-law had to step in and set him straight. When I asked if I could return later in the evening to make sure everything looked as we had asked, they were not accommodating. All in all I would not recommend this place to anyone. It was a VERY STRESSFUL evening. Good news, despite all the details that went wrong, we had a great wedding and had a lot of fun with our family and friends.

The venue was perfect size for the wedding, with movable walls to fit our reception. The food was delicious and ready on time, and the staff was very efficient and professional. I chose the venue because room rental included the set up of the banquet room...tables, chairs, linen, silverware, lights under the skirted tables, and a backdrop. Everything I would stress about on my own was handled and taken care of by their staff. Everyone was friendly to work with and it went off without a hitch on their part!!

My food at the event was awful . The food that I taste tested was wonderful but the food at the event was terrible and not the food I ordered in which they breeched our contract . My guest left and went to McDonalds because of the food. Also the honeymoon "suite" was terrible I would have been better off at a Motel 6 . Also when we tried to talk to management about the situation they give us the completer run around to the point we had to get a lawyer involved . I would not recommend my dog eat or have an event there.

My daughter's wedding was held at the event center. During the planning stages of the event, a new event coordinator was reassigned to us. At first, I was somewhat nervous about that....but there was no reason to be. The wedding went off perfectly. The banquet room was beautiful, the food was great, and Larry and his service team were exceptional!!

Me and my husband were married here. The size of the reception roon was really nice, and it was well worth the money.

The food was excellent, no complaints from anyone! Considering it's hard to please my family.

The sales managers were also very helpful and nice. Very professional and able to work with me to go above and beyond my expectations!

I feel they were very accomadating to my needs as the bride. Most guests where from here but my guests from the south enjoyed their cajun food. They specially made a vegetarian dish for just me!
