Our wedding in Cheney was perfect! We had a large wedding which left us with only a few places to hold it in Cheney without going to Spokane, but we kept it local and it was wonderful. Every vendor we used was top notch, I don't have a single complaint about any of them. They worked within our budget and provided more than we ever could have imagined. Cheney is beautiful in May and our wedding day was gorgeous!
Our cake was absolutely beautiful! Marsell was so great; I gave her my idea and she turned it into a fabulous cake. She made the most elegant cake and topper, and the cake tasted soooooo delicious. We met once to taste her cake and decide what kind we wanted, she matched our wedding colors, and she delivered. The best part is that she will make another top tier cake on our 1 year anniversary for free. I definitely recommend Marsell's cakes to any bride getting married in the Spokane area!
We met once before our wedding and I told her what I was picturing. She took out some stems right there and made some sample boutonnieres, corsages, bouquets, and centerpieces. I didn't even have to think about the flowers after that. She was helpful at keeping within our budget and she delivered. They forgot to deliver two corsages, but they were local, and had them to us in 10 minutes.
There is not really another hotel in Cheney, so we didn't have any other choice, but we didn't need one because the Holiday Inn was so great! The staff were very helpful. They put welcome baskets we provided in each room for our guests, they gave us a group rate, and they provided a shuttle for our guests to and from the venue and airport.
If there were more stars, I would give this venue a 10!!! First of all, the event planning staff at EWU took care of ALL the details. We looked at numerous beautiful buildings on the campus and this one was the one that had enough space for all our guests. The event staff came up with a great menu just for our wedding. We met before hand to go over room layout, to see what the tables would look like (they were beautiful!), to look at lighting, and they were very flexible making changes. The event staff was great at emailing different menus, plans, room layouts, table settings, all of it since I was out of the area most of the time I was planning. The day before our wedding, they set up all the tables and allowed us to come and decorate the hall, but they took care of setting the tables, providing the sound setup for the DJ, adjusting the lighting, everything. We gave them the centerpieces (they also had some that we could have chosen) and they set them up as well. It was so easy, the dinner tasted great, and they took care of every detail - from setup to cleanup. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! There are even more beautiful historic buildings on the campus that have just been renovated, I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
