Hear It From Our Guests

We could not have asked for a smoother planning process and a phenomenal day of the event. Angela was attentive to all questions for how to plan the event. Her staff member, Keli was gracious in meeting with us the day of to quickly decorate. And the Aramark staff just pulled off such an amazing spread of food and were so gracious and kind to our visitors. Everyone felt welcomed and relaxed and knew they were in good hands. Thank you for everything! Baptizing our grandchild was not only such an important part of our day at the University Chapel, but to come up and feel truly welcomed in such a beautiful restaurant such as the Fairview Pavilion, we could not have asked for anything better.
