Nicole offered a quality tour of the space and offered some innovative ideas for utilizing the space. When we arrived members of the staff graciously checked on us to ensure we were attended to. There are always unexpected “issues” in events, and I think its not much about the issues that pop up, but how they are handled. Based on my experiences today, I have the upmost confidence that your team would provide our guests with a flawless experience.
