Wow. I cannot believe the superior service, beauty, helpfulness, and kindness that "The Glow" had to offer. Tabbatha and Jeremy were the best people to work with, even though my millions of questions and concerns. I had 250+ guests, and they were more than easily accommodated... Read More with a delicious buffet and two bar services. They offer everything you can think of to help you on your big day as well. Showers, rehersal dinner, ceremony, photography, dj, limo...the list is endless. They even accommodated my family and friends with special needs and food allergies with their special services. I spent a good deal of time looking for a venue, and this one tops them all-even if you have a smaller reception, it would still be perfect with the use of their room divider and amazingly high and beautiful ceilings. Many of my friends and family knew very little or anything about this place before we had our reception there, but they will never be able to forget it now. You really cannot beat the best price, service, and quality of the Glow, even if you try to to everything by yourself. Trust me. I already did the research for you. AND, the Ramada Inn will shuttle guests that stay at their hotel if you book more than twenty rooms/nights.

The Golden Glow is a great option for a reception and/or ceremony! It's a very nice facility with fantastic chefs. Go to one of the complimentary wedding showcases to taste the food, and you'll see how good their food is. The facility can host several weddings during the same... Read More time slot because of multiple ballrooms and entrances. The event coordinator, Jessica, is very helpful. She went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly for set up and the reception. The outdoor Glow Garden was available during our reception, so we were able to use that space for taking family photos. Golden Glow's prices are definitely a great value, too! My only wish is that they offered rental of Chiavari chairs (or had a recommended company that did), or had banquet chairs in a more neutral color than maroon and gold. Chair covers and sashes are available for rental, but I did not want chair covers.

I would not recommend hosting your event here. I had an event for a 50th wedding anniversary August 20th. Let Alix know I would be there about 10 to start decorating for our 1:00 party. Showed up at 10:30 and there was not one thing ready for me. I was informed by a chef... Read More that they realized at 2 am that morning that they didn't have enough tables and chairs for my event and they had to rent them. That they would be there at 11:30. I told him I had to decorate and 90% of the decorations I had go on the tables. I was told I would be given staff to help me decorate. That did not happen. The room at 10:30 hadn't even been cleaned from the night before, bathroom dirty, bar dirty, had not been vacuumed absolutely zero preparation had been done. I had to stay on top of the 2 staff members I was given to get the room ready with the exception of Dan he tried his best to get everything needed to make sure the party was ready at 1:00 but he is only 1 person. I had to have my sister-in-law vacuum the room because the table and chairs finally showed up at 11:00 and the staff I was given had to help get them to the room. I had to help put on linens to make sure we would be ready on time. I was very disappointed that the manager of the Golden Glow was showing the room to potential clients and frankly where in our way while we where preparing for the party and once after our party started. Totally inappropriate. I was never contacted by management during set up or during our party or even after our party to apologize for this mishap or to even assist in getting the room ready or explain what had happen. I sent an email to Alix stating all this and how disappointed I was that the ball was dropped on our party and was never given a response. There was one employee Dan that helped tremendously to ensure my party would be ready by 1:00 if it wasn't for him I am not sure we would have been prepared for our guest. I had this at the Golden Glow to make it so it was stress free. This was so not the case they could have cared less about the mishap they had their money for the event and left me hanging. The only positive thing I can say is the food (soup and sandwiches) was good. Otherwise I would not recommend and I won't be having a party there again.

Great Place For A Wedding!

The Golden Glow was the perfect location for my ceremony and reception. The service was great and the prices are reasonable. The only suggestion I have for them would be to create a Bridal/Groom room for the wedding party to get ready.
