ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL!!! My husband and I had our wedding there June 2022. We are so blessed to have been told about Gateway & couldn’t have chose a better place! The owner and her staff were very helpful with whatever we needed. Awesome communication with our Wedding planner and Vendors! Even making sure our officiant had what he needed throughout the ceremony with him being a diabetic. Our decor was absolutely breathtaking! Definitely would book again! #TheColes PS: Y’all don’t get the delay on the review twisted… we have been enjoying our married life 🤪 #Book#Book#Book

We had to change venues for our daughter's pre-wedding gathering. The staff at Gateway were able to accommodate us on the original date, provide food and even decorate for us. The fees were more than reasonable and you could see that the owner had put her heart into each detail. We were so grateful for having such a nice venue for this big event in our family. I highly recommend Gateway Event Center for your next gathering.
