Lisa's did a wonderful job catering our large wedding reception dinner and the food was fabulous. We received many compliments on it. The service was quick and the experience with them was great.
As an alum, I was thrilled to have my wedding at the chapel at Augsburg. It is a beautiful space and really worked well for us. The only bad thing was the sun came in through the skylight or upper windows and glared across my husband and his groomsmen's faces through half the ceremony. We didn't expect it but it wasn't awful. Overall, the staff did a great job and the space was perfect for us.
Overall, the studio is beautiful and functional. It worked out quite well for us. The only bad things were the parking lot was too small for my 300 guests and some had to park down the street a ways, which was ok on a nice day but could be bad if weather was bad. The space held 300 guests using the entire room, so to have the dance, we had to ask half our guests to get up and the staff removed tables - so a lot of people left, which was not what we intended. If you have that many people, just know it'll be a tight squeeze. it's probably best to cap at 250 or something. The dance lessons are great but leave plenty of time to have more than one. Finally, I was told we could have people there at 10 a.m. to set up our stuff but the tables were not ready, so that caused some issues. they really needed to have that ready earlier and I'm not sure how everything got done but it caused some stress for my family. The studio is a really nice, pleasant space and it's great to have your dance and place all included. Bringing our own caterer in was great, too.
The Lex was a wonderful spot for our rehearsal dinner. The food was excellent, staff was gracious, quick and helpful, and we really enjoyed our evening there. It felt elegant and cozy.
We stayed at the hotel and did our gift opening there. It was a good spot for this. We appreciated the free room because we had many guests stay there.
We did get photos taken at Como near the pavilion and they turned out beautifully - it was a sunny, bright fall day with beautiful colors everywhere. We will treasure our pictures from that day forever and they mean even more in our favorite spot, Como Park.
