  • I don't have enough words to describe how wonderful World Cafe Live was for our wedding! From the beginning, WCL made the process of wedding planning so much less stressful for us. As you all know, put "wedding" on anything and it becomes 10x more expensive, but WCL remained reasonably priced and did not have all the hidden fees that we were finding at other venues in the city. And the venue came with a wonderful wedding planner! Bridget was a wonderful resource throughout the entire process to help me stay on track, think of all the details and execute our day without flaws. The wedding itself was magical and would not have been nearly as special somewhere else. All of our guests were so impressed, that 6 weeks later I am still getting compliments about how our wedding was one of the best they have ever been to! This would not be even close to being possible without Bridget and World Cafe Live.
