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... Read More 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.

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.

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... Read More we met them. Our families are still talking about how beautiful the wedding was and how nice everyone was.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS VENUE! Bree the wedding Coordinator is amazing and i think she would have been perfect to work with.

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... Read More 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.

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... Read More 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).

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... Read More 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 site

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.
