We heard of and toured the banquet hall after a recommendation from my husbands co-worker. Surprisingly, it ended up being a great fit. The team did an exceptional job that exceeded all our expectations. This is a hidden GEM - a great value provided by amazing staff. At a point, I was concerned about it being in a industrial center. But, the day of and looking back at photos, you wouldn't have noticed and, it was beautiful! Picking a venue was our biggest decision - you put your wedding in the hands of the venue more than any other vendor and, I would pick this venue/team again in a heartbeat. We keep getting comments from family and friends that they were so impressed by all their efforts - their flexibility with COVID and, the rain we experienced, custom work on the menu and set up, all of their spot-on vendor recommendations and, they did it with a smile. They cared about our day and I felt we really could rely on them. I cannot be happier with the Executive and am so grateful with how helpful they were during challenging moments!

A hidden gem - exceeded expectations


I don't even know where to begin with Executive Banquet Center! My husband and I originally booked a different venue. After having issues with the previous venue due to the pandemic, we withdrew from the contract. We came across the Executive, and fell in love with it. Not only is the ballroom and grounds beautiful, but the staff goes above and beyond expectations. The staff made sure the entire day went smoothly. They also made sure I did not have to lift a finger! They set up all the decorations, and broke down/packed up our decor and gifts. My husband and I didn't really have a chance to eat, so the staff packed up a little "to-go" box to make sure we ate later, in addition, they packed up our cake as well. Anything my husband, I, or my guests needed they took care of. Almost every guest we had complimented the food, drinks and service! I could keep going on about this venue, but that would end up being a novel! If you're looking for a place with great food, and great service you've found it! - Alexis V. Married on 05/23/2021

The Best Wedding Ever


I highly recommend Executive Banquet and Conference center. It is beautiful venue with a lovely outdoor patio area but the people are what truly make the place top notch. Planning a wedding is stressful in the best of times. During a pandemic, with everything constantly changing, the stress is multiplied, however Ronnie and Pam worked closely with my daughter and her husband every step of the way. They were understanding, kind and flexible helping to make the wedding day unforgettable. In addition, the flowers and wedding cake from Bing's Bakery were wonderful making the whole day complete success. - Kelly O. Married on 09/11/2019
