New Years Eve was great. They did a fantastic job. They were covid alert. They laid out the tables appropriately and I can't say a bad thing about how they handled this function. Although the band Soda could have done the count down on time rather than 40 seconds after the new year was already here. The DJ was better and they should have had a DJ for the entire night. He played better dance music and when that happens more people came up to dance. Great time.
My husband and I got married at the Abbington Banquets last month and it was truly one of the best days of our lives. Our wedding was postponed because of covid since May of 2020 and Tara went above and beyond to make the process as easy as possible for us and helped us every step of the way. Under such stressful circumstances during a pandemic she was always so nice even when I asked for extra accommodations. She always got back to me very quickly with anything I needed and took care of everything that came with my package without me having to do much other than make choices. The best thing was her positive attitude which made the process enjoyable. My second biggest concern was the food and honestly it was the BEST wedding venue food I have ever had. Their food is so good I even catered my family’s thanksgiving dinner from the venue last year and that was so delicious as well. It was a great experience working with Tara!
The wedding and staff during our reception were awesome. The whole process leading up to the wedding was horrible. We had booked with one planner come to find out about a month before our wedding, she had quit and no one bothered to let either of us know. We finally get a new planner and come in to talk to her. Our file was completely wrong! Everything we had set already was the complete opposite of what we wanted. We basically had to start over. A month before our wedding. Our new planner, Kathy, was HORRIBLE to work with. She was crabby and rude to us 90% of the time. I had to tell her multiple times about times, food, rehearsal, when I was coming in to get ready the day of the wedding. EVERYTHING. She tells me it's because she's old and can't remember. I was in every week because she wouldn't put anything o said in our file and would never remember anything that we wanted. She made what was supposed to be a fun time, a stressful time. Come the day of the wedding, I kept hearing tons of people complaining about her and how rude she was. We had a couple friends come in and decorate for us before the wedding. Kathy proceeded to gossip with them and complain about me and say how I had no idea what I wanted. I knew exactly what I wanted. She just chose not to work with us. She needs to retire before she does something to someone else. She WAS NOT a pleasure to work with
We had our wedding ceremony and reception on 9/3/21. The venue is gorgeous and staff is amazing. Our coordinator was Kathy. Kathy was great to work with. My husband and I greatly appreciated her expertise. There were moments when we would have liked her to pay attention to details when finalizing things. However, Kathy was always open to receiving our opinions throughout this process. We've received high praises from our guests on how good the food was and the overall beauty of this venue. I highly recommend this venue based on affordability, professionalism and overall beauty.
We had our wedding here in early October of 2021. Tara was absolutely incredible and so helpful from the first time we met with her up until the end of our day. She was so attentive and made sure everything was in order. With COVID and all the challenges that come with it they really did everything to make it as stress free as possible. I cannot say enough good things about the Abbington. The staff was amazing and the food was delicious. Our guests cannot stop talking about how perfect and incredible the entire event was. Would recommend them to everyone! Everything exceeded our expectations!
