Testimonials

I just wanted to send a very big thank you for all the help you provided in making our wedding day a very special one.  From the first interaction I had with Andrew, to the last I had with you, I was very pleased with your services and am so very happy that I found this venue!

I also was made aware of some of the kinks that took place with our catering service, and want to apologize for any grief you may have experienced with them.

Thanks again, and much success in bringing happiness to the many more guests and events that you will host at your lovely venue!

Shannon and I wanted to thank you for all of your help leading into the Gala and for making the evening Wonderful!  I just love that room and how wonderful it looks without too terribly jmmuch effort.  We were thrilled to have raised over $100,000 that night!  Thank you for helping with our success.

We had the pleasure of having our wedding reception at the MEZZ on August 6, 2011. From start to finish, the staff was awesome! Whenever we needed to meet, they were available, kept in constant communication with us, and were excellent hostesses at the reception. Everyone at the MEZZ is so friendly, and we are grateful that we had the chance to work with such a great team. Our family and guests are still talking about how GORGEOUS the facilities are. Nothing in Orlando compares to the MEZZ, as it has its own unique and very contemporary look which is totally different from the cliché, banquet reception halls! We used the Abbey as well as the MEZZ, and loved the fact that they each had two distinct looks– we loved the decor and vibe of each! The lighting in the main room was spectacular, and created a great purple glow in our wedding pictures. We also used the various bold wallpapers as backdrops for our bridal party pictures, which not only was convenient but created the most amazing pictures. After months of searching for the perfect place for our wedding reception, we were very fortunate (and relieved!) that the MEZZ was our last stop. We knew right away that this truly was the perfect place for us, and are forever grateful that we chose the hottest venue in Orlando to party the night away as Mr. & Mrs.!

Thanks to everyone there!

The Parkers (Bride and Groom)

The Central Florida Jazz Society has never been able to attract much attention, and we’re too small to rock the socks off the arts community.  However, at the Abbey, we’ve been made to feel like rock stars!

What a team!  Each of you has been attentive to our wishes and demands, and every aspect of our once-a-month concerts has been handled with understanding, grace and, above all, a feeling of genuine happiness that our group is spending its time with you.

The surroundings are beautiful, and the sound and lighting systems are spectacular. We appreciate your support staff, too – they define the word professional.  In fact, you all could be poster children for Customer Service.  The feeling among our members is that “we’ve found the perfect home.”  What a comfort!

I hope you never change.  CFJS would like to stay with you forever – or, at least, for the foreseeable future.  I can’t wait to sign the contract for our 2012-2013 seasons.

Our family and friends were “Wowd” from the beginning of our ceremony to the end of our reception..

You guys are amazing!!!

Two words immediately come to mind when I think about my experience producing an event at The Abbey: effortless and enjoyable! First, the staff at Artful Events were there from start to finish–from the earliest conversations about what we planned to do, to the actual event execution–Jenna and Andy and their team were courteous, patient, expert, and extremely accommodating. I am very detail oriented and if there was something that I needed to know or a special request that I had, Jenna either knew the answer right away or she took the time to find out for me.

When it comes to event execution, all I can say is WOW. The Artful Events team, in conjunction with The Abbey staff were there to make sure our event (a full runway fashion show) went off flawlessly. Their expertise in the area of event planning and production is unmatched in downtown Orlando venues. I would absolutely recommend Artful Events and The Abbey to anyone looking to put on a classy, fun, successful event in a truly unique venue in downtown Orlando. And I honestly can’t wait to put on another event there myself!

“The MEZZ was the ideal location for our Key Initiative Committee’s (young professionals) Wedding Crashers event. The space offers many set-up options and the lighting is amazing! The evening ran smoothly and The MEZZ staff was extremely professional.”

Just wanted to thank you for an evening we will treasure forever.  All of the guests loved the venue as much as Katie and Joe did when they selected to celebrate their wedding with The MEZZ.  No doubt a wonderful decision and it was a pleasure to work with you both.  Thank you for all your efforts to ensure that the “perfect couple” had THE perfect location in Orlando.

Hope to work with you again at some point in the future when it is our son’s turn.  The Abbey is fantastic and I can confidently say no one does it better.

Chris (Mother of The Bride)

Thank you for all of your help with our “wedding crashers reception” for the Ronald McDonald House.  You were so wonderful to work with and made our groups’ planning part a breeze! Look forward to keeping in touch and thank you again for all of your help!

Mimi (Event Coordinator)

My name is Nicole and I am a local wedding planner (Nicole Squared Events). Today we took one of our newest brides into The MEZZ and Jenna helped us so much. She was so helpful and shared our excitement that we signed right there on the spot only seeing one other venue prior. I just wanted to say what an amazing venue you have and what a great and easy experience it was for us today.

Nicole  (Wedding Planner)

I just wanted to send you two a quick note to thank you for the great job you are doing at Artful Events.  The UCF function on Thursday and David’s wedding yesterday could not have been any more different in set up and requirements; and yet you pulled both of them off flawlessly.

Jim (Owner)

Wow! What a spectacular wedding. It was so very beautiful and the Abbey and MEZZ were a real hit. Thanks for all your hard work and help in making our day perfect. It truly exceeded our wildest dreams!
