Dear Sophie,

I have been trying to think of the best way to express my gratitude for all your hard work in producing our reception. I cannot simply find enough words. From the moment we meet with you in October, 2015, your knowledge and expertise have been invaluable. I felt comfortable asking you any question and was impressed with your immediate response time!

The reception itself was magical. Everything was laid out exactly like you said it would be- I was so happy!! The food was absolutely delicious and the service was first class! Our friends and family (along with Jimmie and I) were beyond impressed with how we were treated–we felt like celebrities!

The breakfast the following day was also superb as was the service-even with the power outage happening! We floated home :-)

I could not have asked for anything more. It was truly the best day of my life. You clearly listen to your clients and personalize each one. I feel you are the best in this business and will refer any potential bride to you and The Atheneum. Please share this with your supervisor; I want my feelings known about your work ethic.

With heartfelt thanks,
Amy P.

I cannot WAIT to have my wedding at the International Banquet Center at the Atheneum Suites Hotel!!! We have booked it for our wedding next year and they have been nothing but accommodating and responsive. Sophie has surely taken care of us already! She has gone out of her way to meet with us 3 times before we booked, and even made sure we could see it when it was set up for a wedding!! She was helping put everything together for the bride that evening and still made me feel like we had her full attention for the short time we were there. I can’t wait for this beautiful space accompanied by such a great and attentive staff.

Dear Sophie,

I can’t thank you enough for everything you and your team did to make our wedding reception absolutely PERFECT. You treated us, our family and guests like royalty. From the minute our guests stepped into the Atheneum Suites, they were highly impressed with the attentiveness, professionalism and friendliness your staff provided.

Your team set up our reception so that it was absolutely breathtaking. You did not miss a single detail and made everything look even better that I could of imagined. All our guests had nothing but fabulous things to say about the food, service, venue and overall night. Several people have told us it’s the best wedding that they have ever been to…and the compliments keep pouring in.

Your staff was extremely courteous and really went the extra mile to make sure Jeff and I were happy. They always checked in on us and made sure our glassed were full throughout the night. Even when I came down to brunch the next morning, everything was beautiful.

I will always continue to spread the word about your fabulous venue and hardworking staff. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You made our wedding night the best night of our lives…and I hope to have 5, 10, and 50 year anniversary parties there!!!!

Andrea & Jeff
