Our wedding reception at the Avalon Manor was perfect. We were assisted by Katie, who was extremely knowledgeable and helpful as we planned for our event. The food was fabulous and our guests raved about it, many commenting on it being the best they have had at a wedding. The venue is beautiful, and the service was great. We couldn't have asked for more...

The Avalon was awesome throughout every step of our reception. I did not have a ceremony here, but my reception was perfect! They listened to what I wanted and made it happen. Katie and Sarah were attentive to my wants and did an awesome job in accommodating! The ballroom looked beautiful and the staff did a fabulous job! My guests are still giving compliments about the food and service. I forgot to order a vegetarian meal for one of my guests, and the wait staff heard and had her a new plate in seconds!! Our bartenders not only made sure that our drinks were perfect, but also something for my minor daughter. They were amazing and I could not have asked for a better time! Thank you

Well, where do I start. The room was late being set-up, so our 5:30 ceremony didn't start until 5:45. Not a huge deal...but nerve racking as a bride. Somehow, over $400 of my makeup disappeared, my moh extra jewelry and my toss garter just vanished. At the end of the night, I am pretty sure the staff either took in back to wash or threw away our engraved toasting glasses. The rep we were dealing with wasn't very personable.

I was very happy with Avalon Manor! They did an absolutely beautiful job with our wedding. Out point of contact was very professional, responsive and did a great job of guiding us through the process.

On the day of the wedding, the staff and service were phenomenal. The head waitress introduced herself to us and told us to ask her if we needed anything at all. All of the food was brought out in an orderly fashion and on time. People also loved it and we got a lot of compliments on how tasty it was. We did have an issue with one bartender not wanting to serve the bridal party during the 'break' hour, however the head waitress was great and speedily resolved this issue.

The only complaint I could possibly have is they aren't very good with the before and after of accommodating your 'stuff'. For example, my mom put together a great sweets table, but she had to go home to pick it all up and then set it up in between the ceremony and reception. It would have been great to be able to just drop that off the afternoon before withe everything else, but the Avalon couldn't accommodate fridge space.

In addition, after the wedding, you are supposed to remove everything that night or it will be thrown away. This really kills the celbratory mood because someone has to be sober and coordinate the tear down. I feel like this is a little inconsiderate policy, and it would not be hard to have a rule that things need to be picked up by say 9AM the next morning. These are just things to consider as you book the venue.

Also they DO NOT SERVE SHOTS. This was NOT spelled out to me clearly before I signed the contract and I was super bummed - I really wish I would have known that in advance. However, they make mixed drinks so it works out.

Overall, we had a very pleasant experience. I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone else!
