The Winningers (May '18 wedding)

 "Fort Frenzy and staff made planning a wedding so easy and stress free. Jen and Teresa are a great combo who made sure everything goes perfect. The attention to detail is one thing we did not have to worry about because they had it covered. Our wedding was exactly how we imaged it would be. We would not have wanted to have our wedding anywhere else. Thanks again for helping make a perfect memory for us!" 

The Ashbrooks (Dec. '17 wedding)

"The Cardiff Center at Fort Frenzy was everything and more for a venue for our wedding reception.   We loved everything about having our wedding reception take place at The Cardiff Center! The inside was absolutely gorgeous! The draping is 100 percent a game a changer in that room! The day of our wedding, everything ran smoothly and flawlessly. From the food, the bar, the projectors for our videos, the set up of the room--the whole night was perfect. The Cardiff Center took care of all of our needs! We highly recommend it for your big day!" 

Theresa Compart-Smith (Mar. '18 wedding)

"Just like most girls, I dreamt of my wedding for years...envisioning what that day will be and then trying to think of how we are going to bring our vision to reality.  At the Cardiff Center, I didn’t have to worry about any of it.  Jen and Teresa brought the vision of my wedding to reality.  They took the time to explain and walked me through every step of the planning process.  I could not have asked for more. They go above and beyond any expectations.  Now, over a year later, I still have guests talking about how elegant and beautiful our wedding was."
