We worked with Michelle, she was absolutely amazing, very prompt, straight forward and kind. She made the planning as easy as it could be and was happy to jump on a call the moment we needed it. Her emails were detailed and didn't leave you questioning what was left to do. We had the atrium room, it was spacious and grand giving all my guests a place where they were comfortable.

We absolutely loved the William Tell for our wedding day! When we originally booked our wedding in August of 2015, we were working with Jill B. She unfortunately left the William Tell a few months later and my husband and I were a bit nervous about transitioning to a new rep. Thankfully for us, Jill G. did an amazing job of taking over and getting to know everything little aspect of our wedding to make us feel comfortable moving forward. She answered all of my millions of random little questions I had and even came in to sit in a meeting with my day-of-coordinators to answer their questions. They made sure we were greatly accommodated on the wedding day. We were able to bring all of our decorations and centerpieces in on the day before the wedding even though there was an event in our room that night. They let us use an empty hotel room on the first floor to store it all, saving us time on our actual wedding day. We were given the honeymoon suite which was large and gave us ample room for hair and makeup. The food was delicious and we are still getting compliments about the beef and mashed potatoes. And the Atrium Room was as gorgeous as it was the day we walked in for the first time. The fireplace and loft added such a great touch that our friends and family can't stop talking about them! We absolutely recommend the William Tell if you're looking for a gorgeous and large venue!

Speak to them honestly about what you need and then decide if it will be a good fit. They try to accommodate what you want, even if it means sticking to your budget or making personal adjustments that aren't usually asked for.

Michelle D was absolutely a Godsend ! I felt very comfortable working with her. She knows her stuff and was very patient with us even with last minute changes in the number of guests. She got back to me promptly and helped me coordinate the most flawless wedding reception. I couldn't be happier with my experience!

William Tell did an absolutely incredible job of making our big day perfect! From the moment we walked in to tour the venue to keeping our cake top for a week after (because we had forgotten to pick it up!), they were wonderful! They were incredibly flexible when we had special requests, provided multiple options for us and provided great insight into what works well for weddings of our size (220). They had great attention to detail and met all of our requests. We had chosen a plain cake and did not have a cake topper so they offered to decorate it with gorgeous flowers for no charge. All our guests raved about the quick, polite service from all the staff and about how good the food was! We could not have been happier.

Rebecca Z. Was an amazing event planner at the William Tell. She was very attentive and took time to make our day so special. If you plan an event at the William Tell, be sure to request Rebecca Z. as your planner and you will not be disappointed.

I loved this venue; it was exactly what I was looking for. The Atrium Room had a great rustic feel, and it was a huge location. Rebecca was my coordinator, and I could not have asked for a better person to handle my wedding reception. She had an answer for every question I had, and she did everything in her power to give me what I wanted for the big day. We left our centerpieces and gift table decor with her prior to the wedding; when I arrived at my reception, I didn't even need to tweak anything! She set up every table, picture, and any other element so perfectly. I was amazed when I walked in the door to see my entire reception exactly how I pictured it. I seriously could not have had this amazing reception without her!
