“We will forever be grateful that we chose to have our wedding at Encore Events!”

Kaitlyn and her team were so incredibly helpful and paid attention to so many details that we hadn’t even thought of. They truly kept things running smoothly day of, and were kind and responsive to my every question and concern in the months leading up to it. Our wedding day was absolutely gorgeous- we had our ceremony at the gazebo and our reception in the Rose Ballroom and both were perfect. The food was WONDERFUL, and the servers and bartender were also all so kind and went above and beyond for our Guests! We truly had an incredible experience and Encore Events will always hold a special place in our hearts! – Lindsey Grace Hong
