Lasting Impressions

The Athenaeum takes great pride in exceeding expectations and executing your perfect event. We value the close relationship formed with each one of our members during the preparation and planning of their celebration. It is their words and compliments that best capture the essence and experience of hosting an event at The Athenaeum. Please see below the small sample of the many member compliments that we have received over the years.

It's Monday morning, and all are still feeling the warm glow from the wonderful ceremony and reception Saturday. Thanks to you and your staff for your gentle but invaluable guidance that brought my daughter's wedding vision to reality. Many folks said it was the best they'd ever attended. The club was so elegant and the staff was exceptional to us and our guests.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help in organizing our wedding reception. I'm so happy we ended up moving in out to the courtyard. The weather was perfectly lovely. The lights were beautiful. The food was delicious - and we absolutely devoured our late-night packaged meals at the hotel! Thank you so much for you patience with all of our last-minute planning and details. Your calmness and cheerfulness really made all the difference. I just really cannot say enough to thank you.

Thanks again for all your help in putting together what amounted to a truly lovely wedding reception for our daughter and her newly minted husband. You held our hands, so to speak, when we needed it and patiently guided us through the entire process as well as the many options and the pros and cons of each. We always felt confident in your organization and your judgment, and our confidence in you was never misplaced. Thanks, too, for the excellent vendor list that you put together.

Wow...you are all one great team...! Thank you so much for making the wedding...not just beautiful.... but magical! The food, service, music, the love story, the flowers...(and of course the organization). I can't wait to see the photos and the video to re-live such a special evening. You are all the very best!

There are no words to express my gratitude for all your help with Chandler's Gala. Everything was perfect! Service outstanding, food fabulous -- just a perfect evening. Love working with you -- you are a delight. Thanks for everything.

We did it! A perfect party! Your skills as a party manager are beyond compare! ... The most often made comment of our guests was "the best party we've ever been too!" Could be that our love, your love and their love was showing through.

As you know it was a fabulous time for us and certainly an evening to remember. I think that you and your staff deserve the highet compliments for the organization and performance on the occasion., from beginning to end. I would say the entire event eas flawless from a standpoint of the organization, the flow and the elements of timing. The entire orchestation turned out to be absolutely perfect.
