What people are saying…

“I just had my wedding at The McKinley in June. I cannot say enough about them! From the food to the staff everything was amazing. We did the buffet and everyone has their food in a timely manner and the food was amazing! The staff was so helpful and accommodating. Working with Alisha during the whole planning process made things so much easier for me. She was very helpful, and made things run so smooth for my husband and I. I would definitely recommend having your wedding here!”

“My husband and I recently had our reception at the McKinley. Hands down, the best choice we could have ever made! The venue itself is absolutely amazing. Plenty of space so you do not feel crowded, but instead you can enjoy the space while still visiting with other guests. The staff was incredible. They went above and beyond to help us with every detail. They are very friendly to work with! Alisha (coordinator) was the absolute best! She made the whole process worry free! The food- wow! Literally, the best food I’ve ever had at a wedding! Every single guest of ours commented about how great the food was. Every decoration that we had was set up beautifully and I couldn’t have asked for a better place to have our reception. It was a magical feeling walking in after the wedding to see such an elegant reception set up! Well done to all of the McKinley staff!!”

“Where do I even begin? Working with Alisha and the staff at the McKinley was amazing! Our whole planning process was stress free and fun and we couldn’t have asked for anything more! The venue was decorated just as we imagined it, the food was DELICIOUS and our guests were totally blown away! Our wedding was a dream come true! From our signature Bride and Groom Drinks, to our Smore bar, the food and how helpful the staff was throughout the process, I can’t thank you guys enough for everything you did for us throughout the process! Our wedding is still being talked about and how it was the best wedding people have ever been to!”

“The staff, food, service, and ambiance was also exceptional. Dinner was served to all 190 of my guests in what seemed like record time. The staff was friendly, professional, and responsive to any requests. The food was delicious – especially the chicken cordon bleu and the maple soy salmon. The setup of the room was perfect for both the cocktail hour and the reception, without feeling cramped. The dance floor is huge and accommodates a large crowd.”
