Susan at Wagner's was a godsend!! Our initial venue double booked our day and we were left without a venue at about 60 days out- talk about panicking!!

Read More remembered them from my sister's high school awards ceremonies and thought hey this might work.... We ended up calling and making an appointment just to go over pricing and my mother and I were so happy with the package and quote we negotiated -we ended up booking the day and leaving a deposit.

So Let's forward to the big day- We decided to exchange our vows there as well so as not to make it confusing for our guests having to drive to one place first then another. The ballroom turned out amazing!! perfect venue for our group and a great place to exchange vows, we had more than enough room so it was perfect. Susan was nothing short of a miracle that day helping us get through with our precession, making sure no one interrupted our ceremony and getting us through to the cocktail and app hour Whew!! we made it :) The food on the buffet was absolutely spectacular and going with the chef carved prime rib gave it that extra something we were looking for. Trust me, you cant go wrong with it. After the dinner service, they quickly and quietly tore down the buffet and moved us seamlessly into the next phase- the party!! The its ok we got through it with no major disasters and let your hair down part of the night and it was just perfect!! I cant thank Susan or the staff enough for all of their help and in rescuing our special day they went above and beyond what was expected.
