  • I would 100000 precent recommend having a wedding at the East Town Ballroom. I knew nothing about weddings before starting to plan for my big day. David and Cathy were great people to work with and would respond to any questions I had. They were also really responsive with all the covid guidelines. Plus, the venue looked like a fairytale and the food was very good!

It was a true pleasure working thru this process with you, even with the multiple curve balls we’ve experienced over the last year!
