The Event Factory was AWESOME! All aspects of a Wedding in one place and you don't have to deal with several vendors for major things like the caterer, photographer/videographer they were included. The staff made sure EVERYTHING was taken care of and did a Fabulous job making... Read More us comfortable with what to expect. At our rehearsal, Lindsey made sure that every knew where they were supposed to be and exactly what was to happen from the ceremony to the end of the reception. Stacie the photographer took awesome photos prior to the event as well as during it and made sure all the important photos were captured. Lindsey the DJ directed the wedding and reception so no one missed out on anything. On the big day the entire staff was very attentive to the Bride and Groom and made sure our guests had everything they needed. The food was very tasty and the presentation was great. It was one stop shopping for a Wedding and I couldn't be happier about it! We only had to worry about the officiant (who was a personal friend) our wedding attire, ordering the wedding cake and providing a bartender/security since we served alcohol. (Small things like the Cake cutter and Bride/Groom toasting flutes, and extra decorations were also not included.) But overall it was beyond well worth the money spent for peace of mind that I had then and the lasting memories I have now! They also include a 16x20 photo, large wedding album for the couple and small wedding album for both the parents. You get to download all of the photos with a copyright release and choose to either have them print all the photos or do it on your own. I will definetly recommend them to anyone looking for a budget friendly, hassle free, almost all-inclusive event.

Jenny and Mike was great we handled everything on the phone. I gave him an idea of what we wanted and he pegged it. Everyone was up and dancing for 4 hour. We had a blast.

We had our wedding two weeks ago. We got the small family package in the Forest room . The package includes up to thirty people including my husband & myself, catering, photography, music & beverage bar. The food was absolutely amazing, a huge thank you to the... Read More chef. The dj was my biggest complaint , this is why they got a 4/5 for my review. We gave the dj a cd with songs that we wanted played and a request to not have one specific band played, she played that very band at least three times , not any off the cd we wanted and my biggest complaint is she played the wrong first song for my husband & I. She realized right awaybut didn't change it or try to fix it, she never even apologized. They were sloppy with they're time management also. Other than that the wedding went perfectly and was beautiful. It was a great price for everything we received and they decorated beautifully. They even let us go in early and set everything up. Their music mistakes and time management are the only problems we really had. Everything else went without a hitch. All in all we'd have the wedding there again.

Love the head table & chairs!

I love both floor plans, the almost-all-inclusive packages that cater to almost any budget. What sold me though, was the set of grandious chairs in the celestial ballroom with the glass top table. I felt like royalty sitting there!

Overall we had a great time. Coming in on the carriage was just a wow factor for our guests and added something different to the event. They allowed us to create our own slide show and this was also a nice touch. I only wish they had a more variety of linens as we had to rent... Read More the colors that we wanted and was told that they would not assist with setting this up because they were not their own. The Event Factory was very professional overall and I would recommend them in the future, especially if you are on a budget and need an all inclusive package which they offer to include(photographers, videographer, food and DJ) They also have a chapel so you can have both ceremony and reception there without having to leave.
