  • We had our ceremony and reception at SURG. We booked about a year and a half out. Andrea was great to work with and was flexible to our needs. We had a gorgeous day. Even so, the bartenders were rude to guests and charged folks for drinks even though we had open bar for family. The food servers were also not a joy to be around and were heard complaining about the night and their job. Overall, Andrea worked her a** off for us to have an amazing day. I just wish the workers at SURG would have made us feel the same way.
