"We had our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception at the Pfister Hotel - and it was amazing. The Ceremony and Reception were in the Imperial Ballroom, which was absolutely gorgeous. Mickey was our venue contact, and he was so great to work with. Mickey helped ensure the room was laid out as we requested, was so helpful with our tasting trial, our catering and bar selections. I would absolutely recommend a wedding at the Pfister!"

"We had our wedding at the Pfister Hotel. It was amazing and so beautiful! Jessica, Amanda and the rest of the staff were AMAZING! They worked with our schedule and were so patient with us about making decisions and making sure everything went according to plan. It turned out better than we ever expected! Thank you guys best day ever!"

"The entire Pfister team was amazing. From start to finish we were satisfied with our service. Bailey made booking the event really easy and our coordinator Matt was super helpful and went out of his way to make the event be fantastic. He himself went out and bought specific items to make special drinks for the big day. We had to push our wedding back due to COVID and the Pfister team made everything go smoothly. The wedding food was all amazing, you could not go wrong with any item you choose for the wedding and it is all made fresh the afternoon of the wedding. We also had some people who had dietary restrictions and the Pfister team handled it like pros. 10/10 would book my wedding there again."

"You can't go wrong with a wedding at the Pfister. Every single detail is perfect. The hotel is so gorgeous, historic and elegant. We loved our wedding there so much and there are not enough good things to say about the flexibility and ease of planning a wedding with the Pfister during COVID. The food was amazing, everything ran on time, and I was able to enjoy the day without any worries. We were able to save on decorations as well, since the venue is so beautiful on its own! Our wedding was one year postponed, and worth every minute of the wait! You will not regret having your wedding at the Pfister."
