Our son??s wedding ceremony and reception were at the Abernethy Center in September, 2009, and it was a lovely evening from beginning to end. Already in the planning stages the staff was always ready and willing to help coordinate, answer any questions that we had and were very accommodating with our special requests. The ceremony was in the Veiled Garden, which is stunning ?? beautiful and private. The reception was in the Ballroom which was the perfect venue to celebrate with the newlyweds. The Ballroom itself is beautiful, and after adding our own touches ?? centerpieces, candles and flowers ?? it was magical. The catering was better than we ever imagined. The buffet was excellent and beautifully displayed. We had many comments on the delicious dinner. We also had many comments on what a ??fun? reception it was. The DJ, Eric, was awesome. He kept the reception flowing so smoothly and involved our guests throughout the evening which they really enjoyed. Our son and his beautiful bride had a very special evening that was extraordinary in every way. We all have treasured memories of their wedding celebration and the start of their new life together.

Our daughters wedding turned out perfect! From the initial meeting and all through the process, the staff worked with every detail and made it a pleasure for us which can be viewed as typically a very stressful time. My daughter was able to truly enjoy her wedding day and not worry about the cake topper, flowers on the tables, video presentation, and everything else that she planned so perfectly for that day. Having the florist next door to the Abernathy Center was a tremendous benefit and it worked extremely well. When we talk to friends, family and guests about the wedding, the first thing they comment on is the food and how beautiful everything was. Abernathy Center truly made this day a day we will remember as perfect.

As a local buisness owner, I have had the opportunity to work closely with the Abernethy Center. Time and time again they have not failed to go above and beyond to create a flawless event for all parties involved. Their superb attention to detail and high standards of excellance put everyone at ease and instills confidence in 3rd parties, such as myself. I have yet to collaborate on an event with them, whether it be a wedding, business conference, or holiday party that has been anything less than stunning. Their dedication and involvement in the community ensures fresh local products and services that promise a vibrant and refreshing experience in all aspects.

My husband and I chose the Abernethy Center for our wedding on September 19, 2009. We couldn't have been happier with the outcome. We thoroughly enjoyed the staff, they were very helpful and friendly. They assisted us with planning the "in's and out's" of our day. One reason (and of the main reasons) for choosing this location: BEAUTIFUL grounds! Our pictures turned out beautifully. And, we had a contingency plan for rain, which we ended up not needing (PHEW!)

We chose the indoor/outdoor package, which included the Veiled Garden ceremony and Abernethy Ballroom reception. The catering was outstanding, we heard many good things from our guests about the food. We also included an open bar in our package and guests were obviously happy about that ;-)

One thing I recommend when setting up your event at the AC is to be clear on "day of" event staff, who will be there as your point person/coordinator.

Overall a beautiful event, great staff, and I defintiely recommend this location, I have no regrets! And, I've heard nothing but great things from all my guest too.

I got married at the Abernethy Center last July and my experience was more than I could have hoped or expected. From the moment we booked at the Abernethy Center, their staff was there to answer any and all of our wedding questions. We felt very guided through the process. We also received all of our 5 star vendors via their recommendation. My husband and I live in California and were looking for a venue that our out of town guests would be dazzled by and the Abernethy Center provided that. The event was smooth and felt very seamless. We still to this day get compliments on how beautiful our wedding was!

Pros: Amazing Staff

I loved spending out special day at the Abernethy Center. I would recommend it to anyone, hands down. We had great service the whole way through our planning. The staff had excellent ideas and were there for us the whole day. Very easy to get a hold of and keep in contact with. The venue was nothing short from amazing. Beautiful, awesome prices, and the food was delicious. Best of all, we didn't have to worry about anything the day of the wedding which was great. The Abernethy was perfect!!!

Had 2 visits to the Abernethy Center to consider using for a wedding. The first time it was in the winter and could not really get a good idea of the gardens, but did get the price booklet. Went back in the late summer, had made an appt, they were very helpful, had good hand outs, ideas, preferred vendors, etc. But once you start adding on items which without them, the wedding would seem bare bones, look out...the price was pretty high. And they like to have as many events as they can squeeze in, so be certain you know your time allotment and how many weddings are happening at the same time for parking issues. And traffic noise from I205 was noticeable as was the train coming through right there by the wedding gazebo!We ended up not using them, they were not available the date we wanted, although they did try and convince us to use a Sunday as it would be less money. Just not quite classy enough!

Business Response:

Thank you for your feedback! Thank you for your feedback, we do value it immensely! We apologize if you felt let down in any way by what we have to offer. Abernethy Center has designed its pricing to be very inclusive so that the price for our site rental and our least expensive catering package includes all of the basic items needed for a successful reception, such as tables and chairs, a dance floor, linens, china, glassware, flatware, a full service staff, and pre-event and day-of coordination. We have designed it so that extra items that not everyone would choose to include are available as add-ons. While we do sometimes conduct two events at the same time, every effort is made to keep the events as separate as possible β?? we want each bride to be able to enjoy her special day to the fullest! We do provide separate designated parking for each of our event venues, each with approximately 100 parking spaces. We hope that you found a venue that you love and that you have a wonderful wedding day!

I've enjoyed performing weddings at the Abernethy Center. The grounds and gardens are beautiful. The setting in the woods, garden, gazebo with running streams and brick paver paths. It's magical. The staff is always on hand and attentive. The coordinators work hard to make the event flow seamlessly. The food is wonderful too. Plenty of parking!! I've never seen a venue with this good of parking. Big Plus!

The Abernethy Center hosted our daughter's July 2007 wedding. As out-of-towners, we relied very heavily on the staff at the Abernethy Center for advise and guidance in planning this important event. With 230 guests attending the wedding the facilities were absolutely beautiful. The weather co-operated and the ceremony was held in the Veiled Gardens under rain threatening skies which was a perfectly comfortable day. The staff had indoor back up plans for bad weather ready. The reception in the ballroom was incredible. They more than accommodated all of our wishes for our menu. The food and the wedding cake from their bakery were outstanding. Our guests were overly impressed with the food, the hosted bar, and the DJ (Eric) led activities. All of the recommendations for the DJ, flowers, photographer, car rental, etc. performed beyond our expectations. Our daughter's wedding will always be a treasured memory. Everyone had such a great time. We would recommend Alison and the rest staff at the Abernethy Center to anyone planning a wedding. They are amazing!

I had my wedding at the Abernethy Center last year and it was PERFECT!!!!! We have recieved soooo many compliments from our guests. They can't stop telling us how great the food was, how beautifull the place was and that it was the best wedding that they had ever been to. Abernethy staff were more than helpfull!! The sales department was great in helping create the timeline for the event and accomodating my needs and all of the staff at the wedding were so professional, the ceremony specialist made sure I had everything I need before the ceremony and was great in rounding all of the wedding party up to get me down the isle! I couldn't of asked for a more perfect day. I highly recommend the Abernethy Center to anyone looking for a wedding venue, they went above and beyond my expectations!!!!

I will be honest overall the place was amazing! It is truely an amazing site to have a wedding. But, looks can be deceiving. Your wedding is suppose to be the best of you life. Well, mine wasn't!!!!!! The Abernethy Center provides you with a "wedding cordinator". Well, I guess I was misinformed there are no wedding cordinators there are olny the "leads" (people who lead everything/whos in charged). Well they don't lead, direct, take charge of anything. On your wedding day you are pretty much your own cordinator. You direct everything. They have you write out an ouline of your wedding with the time every little detail and that is a big waste of time.
