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! -Melissa Vaglica
I must say that by far the McKinley is the most perfect and huge venue I have ever seen! I was a little hesitant of the place when we first met with Alisha, but once the big day finally came, everything she promised it could be, became reality! Our friends and family CAN NOT stop talking about how it was the best reception they have ever been to, and they have been to A LOT of weddings. Plus, the food was superb! I would definitely recommend either the Mediterranean Stuffed Chicken or the Potato Encrusted Cod. It makes us feel good knowing that we made a good decision in placing our reception in the hands of Alicia and the staff at the McKinley. COULD NOT have gone any more perfect! Thank you so, so much!! -Jonathan Tiffany
My husband and I had our wedding reception at The McKinley this September and it was better than we could have ever dreamed of! The coordinators went above and beyond to make sure the night went perfect. They are super accommodating with any ideas you may have in the planning process (and give many suggestions!) and are always available to answer any questions you may have. I planned our wedding from Hawaii and had no troubles at all staying in contact with them throughout the process. We also had many of our 200 guests tell us that it was the best food they had ever had at a reception. Gorgeous venue, great people, delicious food! I will always whole-heartedly recommend this venue to any couple planning their wedding in the Binghamton area! -Nikki Batdorf
The McKinley was where my son Bryan Wagner and now beautiful wife, Melissa had their wedding reception. I was very impressed with the professionalism of the staff, the excellent service of the food and the personalization of it being ” their day!” I would like to say Thank you to all who made it so special! I can’t say enough on the excellent choice that they had made for their venue. -Terri Wagner
The McKinley did a fantastic job on making our wedding day perfect. The food was great; my personal favorite was the stuffed chicken. Also, something that I really enjoyed was the fact the bartenders remembered most of the guest drinks. I would recommend the McKinley for anyone’s wedding, the staff is great. -Bryan Wagner
We had our wedding at the McKinley and it was absolutely amazing!! The staff was so attentive during the entire day. From the moment I got there to the last dance song everything was perfect! We have been told multiple times by many of our guests how beautiful the venue was and what a great job their staff did! The planning stages themselves were some of my favorites working with their team. Everyone went above and beyond of what I expected. They were very helpful and accommodating throughout the process. We had some special requests and they all worked very hard to make them happen for us! We really can’t thank everyone at the McKinley enough for making our day so special and perfect! I highly recommend the McKinley they were truly amazing! -Kelliann Lamond
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!! – Lorisa Thomas
The McKinley was the placed I always wanted for my reception, even before I was engaged. I used to work at the McKinley and I know all of the hard work that goes on behind the scenes of a wedding reception. It was such a nice feeling the be the bride and be on the other end of things. Alisha was absolutely fantastic as she guided me through the planning process, and was so flexible with my busy work schedule. The tasting they had was perfect, and let me have another look at things set up before I had my big day. The whole space is completely stunning, from the entrance, to the sunk in dance floor. Plenty of room for dancing, eating, mingling and for a photobooth! This facility really has it all, and does everything to not only make this all about you but make it perfect for you. The food was amazing, and it was awesome to hear all my guests still talking about it weeks after the wedding. Everyone serving did a great job keeping the dinner flow going while keeping the place clean. The layout is perfect and the music could be heard from every corner of the room, and the decorations across the high ceiling were beautiful. My wedding day was perfect and I have Alisha and the McKinley to thank for it, I’m so grateful for all of their hardwork while making my reception perfect. -Melissa Binkewicz
Everything came out better than I ever could have hoped for, the staff was wonderful, food was fantastic, and the room was beautiful. I was getting compliments from not only all of the guests but also from a couple of my vendors that have never been to the McKinley. They told me that it was one of the nicest places they have ever been to and hoped they could return for another wedding. The planning process was basically a breeze, Alisha was beyond helpful and willing to jump through any hoop I threw her way. She helped me coordinate everything from 3 hours away; as I live out of town, which would be difficult for any bride but she was able to pull it all together so effortlessly. Once everything came together the entire venue just looked spectacular and everything went off without a hitch. I could not be happier with how the day turned out. -Chelsea Charles
Selecting the McKinley for our wedding reception was one of the easiest and best choices we made for our special day. From beginning to end, the staff exceeded our expectations. The venue is enormous with lofty ceilings and extravagant light fixtures. There is even a balcony and private room upstairs for the bridal party. In addition, we loved the sunken-in dance floor. It was so spacious and easy for guests to watch couples dance the night away. Also, it provided a separate setting for them to mingle and hear one another. Alisha Fisher, the Director of Catering and Sales, was so incredibly sweet and such a huge help. Mrs. Fisher helped us plan out our whole wedding reception from start to finish and we received a free delicious tasting to boot! She also provided us with wonderful advice throughout the process and was there whenever we needed her! On our wedding day, the staff did such a fabulous job. They had security quickly open up a private room for our bridal party, because we showed up unexpectedly early! Mrs. Fisher even surprised us by showing up at the reception unexpectedly! She checked in on us and brought up drinks and hors d’oeuvres to the private room! She also took additional pictures of us on our wedding day and posted them on our Facebook wall the very next day! The food and service on our wedding day was out of this world! The buffet was perfect and the staff was on point, they checked in with every table constantly. For our bridal party, they got us anything that we needed or wanted! Our guests couldn’t stop complimenting the McKinley for it’s extravagant space, excellent food, and friendly staff. Our wedding day was perfect because of the McKinley and their hardworking staff, we cannot thank them enough. I highly recommend The McKinley to anyone looking for a wedding venue in the Binghamton, Endicott, or Vestal area, I can guarantee you will not find anywhere else that matches their expertise! -Carly Schrader
