A perfect venue and perfect hosts. As we travel across the Unites States teaching for the Institute of Wedding and Event Design, we came across Simply Unique Events and were entirely pleased with everything from the venue and it's space to the service. The layout of the space met our specifications perfectly as well as the decor and ease of access. It's located in a good area close to all amenities was easy to find and has a multitude of ways to load in our trailer full of decor. Dean and his wife Cindy were abundantly gracious and helped us with everything. Advice for wedding and event planners, brides and grooms: Make sure you take the time to view Simply Unique Events. They are extremely helpful, full of creativity and have a perfect venue for any occasion. The space lends itself to any decor choice. You will be happy you choose them.
Love Love Love this place!!!Reviewed on 7/06/2012 Tu Wana F
The staff was AMAZING!!! The facility was emmaculate. The bridal suite was beautiful. My husband and I got married on June 10th 2012. Cindy and Dean were there for us all the way through our journey. We met them after having a bad experience with another venue. We were glad that we met them. Our families are still talking about how beautiful the wedding was and how nice everyone was. We have no complaints about the venue or staff at all. We love Dean and Cindy!!! We love Simply Unique Events!!!
family of groomReviewed on 10/12/2011 jane b
I attended my cousin's reception at parkway west . I loved the venue it was beautiful and the service was great .I look forward to to my receptionthere as well .
Our day was very special and we loved every minute. The girls that worked there were very diligent and made sure we got everything we wanted and needed to make the day as smooth as possible. This location had in house cooks, wait staff, dj, and bar all included and the main girls did all the decorations so everything was out of our hands which was nice. They decorated according to mine and my husband's taste. The only reason I'm giving them 4 stars and not 5 is because the ceiling light fixtures are very annoying and the ceremony pics were either hit or miss. The formal pics we took looked awful with the beautiful ceremonial arch but then the disgusting ceiling lamp just looked so out of place. Also pictures with all the groomsmen walking down the aisle look so goofy because they were all ducking so that they didn't hit their head on the light. I think the building it's self needs a make over of those dang lights. But everything else was great.
Jordan and I did both our ceremony and reception there and it was perfect! When Cindy told us a new team was raking over for our wedding because of a surgery we were a little nervous, but the girls did an amazing job making our day perfect! Our guests had a great time too and loved the place! I would definitely recommend it!!
James & I couldn't have had a better experience! They were awesome! They made us feel very loved and appreciated. The staff was on top of everything and we really got to just enjoy our reception. The venue was decorated pretty and elegant! We couldn't have asked for a better day!
FANTASTIC VENUE!!Reviewed on 6/04/2014 Molly F
This was the first venue we looked at (I wanted a place that held ceremony outside and reception inside at the same location). We then saw 3 more venues after this one, and even before I left the last one, I knew I wanted to go with Simply Unique. Dean and Cindy really took care of my husband and I, and put up with my constant emails and texts with no hesitation. The only issue I ran into was with the DJ. Communication seemed to be an issue when it came to setting up our initial meeting. We then had a form to fill out requesting certain songs or artists we wanted played or not played and it seemed as though I had to request those songs. Besides that the food was DELICIOUS, the reception space could not have been more perfect and it felt as though my husband and I were King and Queen (Cindy and Dean took such good care of us). I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for stress-free planning (they also take point with my other vendors and and made suer I knew of no issues that popped up day of).
Mixed ReviewReviewed on 10/27/2011 Laura W
I really loved the layout and look of Parkway West. We got so many compliments on the way our reception looked. It's very clean and updated with an elegant feel. I was happy with the way they set parkway west up. It was exactly how I wanted it to look. My guests really enjoyed the separate bar/lounge area and patio. The only issues I had with Parkway west was their communication and the manager the night of the reception. Many times I had to follow up on my emails and phone calls. It becomes concerning and frustrating when you can't get a response from them. The price seems really great upfront, but once you add the 18% service charge and taxes onto the total it really adds up! The manager that night at Parkway West caused some issues. Her name is Karina. She added a lot of unneccessary stress and my guests started to notice the way she was acting, not good... She was never rude to me though, but I wasn't happy with what I heard happened before I arrived at the reception. The other parkway west employees were really nice and easy to work with. If you book this facility, my suggestion is to ask for someone else to be there that night of the reception.
Great siteReviewed on 10/09/2011 Leslie E
We loved the location and the look of the venue. We loved working with Dan and his wife Leesa. They were very understanding and helpful. There was one lady on the wedding day that made it a stressful event, but once Dan arrived everything was fine, and he kept the lady away from us for the remainder of the event.
Great place but not great service!Reviewed on 10/03/2011 Shelby T
We loved the venue, the price, and the location. But the people were hard to work with at times. They missed a meeting they set up with us and were even late to the venue on the day of the wedding.
