What do clients have to say about you?

Finley was absolutely UNREAL! My husband and I cannot say enough good things. We looked at about 20 wedding venues and could not be happier with our decision to book with Finley. From start to finish, they exceeded all our expectations. The food was not only delicious but served piping hot, which is no small feat for a large event. The cocktail hour was unlike anything we've ever seen; our guests were blown away by the quality and creativity of the offerings. My husband and I always had a drink in our hand, thanks to the fantastic service. They ensured our reception went off without a hitch, making us feel like the most important people in the room. A guest with significant restaurant experience told us they had never seen a wedding reception executed this perfectly. Multiple times we were told that the reception was over the top! If you want your wedding to be a culinary and service masterpiece, Finley is the way to go!

There was never a doubt that my wife and I were going to book Finley. The debate was always which of their venues to choose! We ultimately went with the Ballroom at the Ben and couldn’t have been happier. The food (WOW), the detail, the staff, and the ambiance was just perfect. We knew we would have nothing to worry about. Having an 11+ year background in the wedding industry, I’ve seen it all. The good, the bad, and the ugly. But every time I’ve been lucky enough to work with the Finley family, that’s exactly how they treat you. Like family. And it was no different being on the other side this time. Thank you so much for giving us the wedding of our dreams.

Thank you to Maitre d for the BEST wedding ever!!!!!! Good morning Ott, I don't know where to begin. The only way to be successful in this business is to surround yourself with GREAT people. Mr. and Mrs. Finley can check that one off their list. Words can not even begin to express our gratitude for YOU making our day so special. It was truly one of the BEST days of our lives. The last thing I said to you at our final meeting prior to the wedding was "I want everything perfect" It was a perfect, incredible, amazing day that will leave us with unforgettable memories. If we had to do this again, there is absolutely NOTHING we would change. The table setups, cocktail hour food and service, dinner food and service, bartenders, band, and most importantly YOU were all amazing!! You made me feel like my best friend was overseeing the wedding. You were with me every phase of the wedding (nice touch bringing me the sea bass). We were blessed to have you as the man in charge of our very special day!!
