The Abernethy Center is AMAZING! From the beautiful ceremony and reception options to the knowledgeable, friendly staff to the incredible FOOD! Our entire day went smoothly and exactly as I'd planned! 5 stars for Abernethy!Aug 27, 2013
I got married in Abigail's Garden a month ago, and it was absolutely the best day, ever! Everything went perfectly, in most part, thanks to Abernethy Center and its staff. I have to credit Abernethy with helping me find some amazing vendors, such as my photographers (Steele Photography), and ceremony musicians (Duo Con Brio). When my husband and I booked our wedding at Abernethy Center, we were given a packet that included a list of their preferred vendors, leading us to the aforementioned vendors, who all helped contribute to such a perfect day! So, you can say that the Abernethy Center was beyond helpful from the start. And that service didn't end there- a few months before our wedding, we my husband and I were invited to a Chef's preview, where we got to meet with a few vendors, and most importantly, sample delicious food; make a decision for our dinner menu. At the Chef's preview, we were given a menu worksheet where we rated the foods and narrowed them down to what we wanted for our menu. That worksheet was left with our event specialist, Elizabeth, who kept it on hand for us until we had our details meeting with her. In this meeting, we were able to discuss not only menu, but decor, timeline, etc. Getting to discuss those things in person definitely helped alleviate some wedding planning stress! Especially since we found out they were willing to work with us on some timeline/setting up issues we had been worrying about. They were very kind and understanding about everything! A few weeks before the wedding, we received an event timeline of our wedding day (which helped us to plan photo times, etc), and we were given a wedding worksheet to fill out, which would be given to our ceremony specialist for our rehearsal and wedding day. At our rehearsal, we were greeted by our ceremony specialist, Lindsey. She was very sweet and understanding, even though we had to start the rehearsal late because some of the bridal party showed up late. During rehearsal, Lindsey managed to gather the bridal party and line everyone up for processional/recessional. She let us run through that until we felt confident everything would run smoothly on wedding day, and guess what? It did! Everything from our arrival to our departure went insanely well! There were snacks and drinks waiting for the bridal party when we arrived! And I knew Lindsey was out and about taking care of vendor and family questions so that my husband and I could relax and enjoy our day. I know we would have been stressed, had we not had a day of coordinator (which is actually one of the main reasons I booked Abernethy Center in the first place). Lindsey was fantastic! She was super helpful, and was always there to guide us and the bridal party, and she made sure everything was effortless for us! She even served our dinner to us, even though we were having a buffet style dinner. I thought that was a nice touch! And the food- it was SO GOOD! We received lots of compliments from guests about how much they enjoyed the food. For dessert, we originally had opted to have a dessert bar that Abernethy provides (which we still did!), but then asked Abernethy Center if they'd be willing to add on a Smore's bar for us, and they did! And it looked wonderful! The smore's bar was a HUGE HIT! Everyone loved all of the desserts offered! We received a lot of compliments on the desserts/smores as well! Once the night was over, we were given a to-go bag of food, dessert, and cider. We thought that was a really wonderful touch! Everyone (especially my husband and I) enjoyed our time in Abigail's Garden! Everything was SO BEAUTIFUL and turned out PERFECTLY! The gazebo and tent looked amazing with our decorations (it definitely helps that Abernethy Center makes it easy to customize your venue to your vision, which is another reason we booked with Abernethy) and the staff was so kind and accommodating! It seemed to us that the they truly cared, as they were with us every step of the way -from booking to our departure on wedding day- to ensure that our day was as special as it could possibly be. And it really was such a SPECIAL and PERFECT day!
