Every part of our wedding planning with IEC couldn’t have gone any better or easier.  Our sales manager patiently answered all of our questions and helped us to select the date that would fulfill our list of needs.  She also helped us select other vendors by providing her expert opinion based on our goals for the reception.

Chelsea answered our constant stream of questions and dealt with our extreme attention to detail with the utmost patience and humor.  The planning process was stress free and easy.  She provided great direction and ideas.  The reception was exactly what Kaeleigh had pictured – every single detail.  It was very elegant yet simple.  I lost track of the number of people that told us it was the most beautiful wedding reception they had attended.  However, the beauty wasn’t only in the flowers and decoration, it was in the elegance of the venue – from the walk through the corridor of pictures of Justin and Kaeleigh, to the cocktail party in the foyer where guests enjoyed the Ding Darling artwork, to the rich woodwork and the personalized lighting in the Grand Ballroom.  The food was wonderful – no small feat since we were running forty-five minutes behind schedule causing a delay in the original serving time.  The entire IEC staff at the reception was very professional, helpful, and prompt with every need or request.  EVERY aspect of our reception was perfect and exactly as we had planned.

We can’t thank you enough for everything you did to make Justin and Kaeleigh’s wedding reception such a memorable occasion.  I felt like not only were we planning a beautiful wedding reception, but we were building a friendship along the way.

Coral & Kim Johnson Parents of Bride

Everything turned out amazing and just wanted to thank you all for the hard work. Definitely would have not been able to do it without you. Everyone has been commenting that it was the best food that they have had at a wedding before! (Seriously everyone has been saying that... I don't think I have ever personally commented on the food before so I am very impressed).
