Our reception at the Diplomat was exceptional! Jenna, the private event coordinator, was wonderful to work with. We didn’t have to hire an outside wedding coordinator because she helped us coordinate everything. She was very professional, patient, and prompt–always available to answer questions and ready to help us make decisions. The venue was absolutely gorgeous with a lovely setup by Jen and staff. Our guests raved about the food–delicious appetizers, salads, and main courses, the elegant room, and personable staff. Most importantly, they really enjoyed themselves! We highly recommend The Diplomat as the entire reception, including the cocktail hour was better than what we expected and imagined.
Beautiful venue. They are pretty accommodating and flexible to most of your needs. All the food options are very good.
We had a wonderful experience at the Diplomat for our wedding reception! Every person that we worked with in preparing for our reception was friendly, helpful and very accommodating. Any time I had a question about our event, Jenna was available to assist and was extremely helpful. At the beginning of our reception, the manager made sure to seek us out to let us know that he was there if we needed anything. Our bartenders were wonderful and friendly to all our guests, as were our servers. The food was great, too. Also, we were thrilled when we were offered a free upgrade to a larger room, when the Diplomat had a cancellation for that room. Thanks to everyone there that helped make our reception so wonderful and memorable!
Fantastic to work with. Everything was perfect, and the food was outstanding.
I would recommend using Diplomat to everyone!
They were great to work with and took care of us from start to finish. We had a blast and they did everything we wanted. It was beautiful and the best day ever!
I loved having my reception at the diplomat. The manager Jen was very helpful and put together a great package for us. The food was really good and the employees were very nice. Our bartenders were hilarious too and very welcoming.
