I am so glad we picked Michael’s to have our ceremony and reception. I am 100% satisfied with the service we received from the time we booked the venue up to the date of the wedding. I have spoken to several people there and they each were so helpful. From the owners son down to the people that place the linen on the tables. The sales ladies Ms. Janet, Ms. Jan, Shannon were FANTASTIC. No matter when I called or came in they were so helpful and willing to answer all my questions. Barry was WONDERFUL! He was there to help out with the rehersal and the day of the wedding to make sure everything went smoothly. My family just loved Barry! Dan made sure that our cake was exactly how we wanted it. Everyone was very professional. Their willingness to make my day special I will never forget. Everyone is still raving about how good the food was! The day went so fast I wish I had more time to enjoy it! If anyone is looking for a venue Michael’s Eighth Avenue is one place you should look into and you definitely will not be disappointed. Thank you Michael’s Eighth Avenue for helping to make my day special!
I CANNOT say enough good things about my experience with Michael’s Eighth Avenue!! I worked with Ms. Janice in the office for all the planning and paperwork and she was awesome! I KNOW I called her like 20 times over the course of my planning and I SWEAR every convo started with me saying ‘Hey Ms. Janice, I’m SOO sorry to bother u again’ or ‘Hey Ms. Janice, It’s Jessica, AGAIN, sorry to be so neurotic!’ And every single time I called it was ‘It’s not a problem at all Jessica.’ or ‘It’s why I’m here!’. She was patient, kind and understanding of the fact that while it was what she did for a living, it was MY only wedding planning experience & I was super type A about getting it all just right! She was a joy to work with and made the entire planning phase enjoyable!
As for the Maitre D, ASK FOR CONNIE BY NAME!!!!!! Almost every review I’d read in my research says to do this and so I did. And I could not have asked for anyone better! Connie was the best thing that happened to me on my wedding day next to my Hubby! Not only was she patient, kind & professional, she made sure her only mission that day was ME! And as self centered as that may sound, trust me the day of, that’s EXACTLY what u need! If she hadn’t brought food to me, I wouldn’t have eaten a thing! She’s such a pro, she knew how to keep the night moving and while we had an AMAZING DJ and he ran the show, Connie knew how to run things seamlessly from behind the scenes. She kept the whole day flowing without flaw & she worked almost completely in shadow! She deserves an award for her amazing work & there just aren’t words to thank her enough for it all. I cried as I wrote her Thank You card when we came back from our honeymoon & AGAIN as I had a convo with my Hubby just recently after attending a wedding at another venue (blah!) & realizing just how BLESSED we were!
Some say it’s not a real wedding without something going wrong?? Than we didn’t have one because everyone at Michael’s made sure ours was flawless!
We ABSOLUTELY loved Michaels, they were the best. I had looked around at a lot of other venues that were pretty pricey and I had to choose from their specified Catering list. Then came along from out of the Heavens Michaels Eighth Avenue. They offered us a phenomenal package at the greatest price. Their outside garden was beautiful and Shannon who heads the outside events is steadily adding new elements to make the space even more desireable. They were patient, prepared, and willing to do anything asked and anything not asked. For my wedding my aunts who does weddings all the time assisted me with a lot of the planning but through out my time planning the staff ( Ms. Janet and Shannon especially) acted as a wedding planner. My wedding was so blissful and I will never forget how wonderful Michael Eighth Avenue was in helping us create such a wonderful day.
Lastly, they were so accommodating that Shannon went out of her way to find me a wagon to use for my oldet son to pull my baby down the aisle. Just adding another wonderful effect to my wedding to have my little boys as the ring bears. Not to mention how patient and caring she was with my children. THE BEST. COULD NOT HAVE ASKED FOR MORE………..HURRY UP AND CHECK THEM OUT DON’T LET THE OPPORTUNITY PAST YOU BY……I STILL HAVE GUEST TELLING ME THAT IT WAS THE BEST WEDDING THAT THEY HAVE EVER BEEN TO. 😉
Michael’s was there to make our day so very special from the very first viewing through the very last song at the reception. Everyone at Michael’s was so very professional and we are so pleased to have them there on our special day and that they made our day feel so personalized and that they paid attention to all the little details that make your wedding day special.
Before selecting Michael’s Eighth Avenue as our venue, we received many quotes; which many of these were well out of our price range. The pricing at Michael’s was very reasonable and I felt that they would go above & beyond to include anything that we wanted to personalize our day. Our wedding cake was included in our package along with all linens, charger plates, table settings, up-lighting, appetizers, dinner, dessert buffet as well as a signature drink. Having all of this included was very helpful as we did not have to look for additional vendors to bring these items into our venue.
Connie was such an amazing Maitre’d. She was there to help with any and everything that was needed. Fallon helped in so many ways from helping my mom pin on her corsage to sitting on the floor & taking chalk to the back of my dress to get rid of the few grass stains that I got on my dress during my pre-ceremony portraits. She helped make sure things ran smoothly & for that we are so appreciative. Shannon was there to help from the very beginning when I scheduled a showing of Michaels. She was always quick to respond to any questions & we are both so very appreciative of everything that she did to help us through this process. Shannon even offered to help with some of the details & running out to the store to grab heel liners for the bride. She made sure everyone was in the right place at the right time so that our wedding would run smoothly.
Everyone made our day so special and memorable!!

Michael’s Eighth Ave was a fantastic venue! We worked for nearly two years with Nora, who was patient and wonderful throughout the entire process. She was helpful and friendly; she was willing to give honest feedback and had an upbeat and personable attitude the entire time. Connie took over the day before the wedding as the Maitre D’ and was a life saver! She knew what to do and worked wonderfully behind the scenes to make our day one that we will never forget. Our guests are still raving, a month later, about how wonderful the wedding was and how fantastic the food tasted. The wedding cake was to die for; moist and melted in your mouth! The entire staff did such a wonderful job and I would recommend this venue to anyone and everyone getting married!
Michael’s Eighth Avenue turned our wedding dreams into reality. The staff at Michael’s is phenomenal they made us and our guest feel like royalty ensuring our entire event went through so smoothly. Our Ceremony was in the garden it was gorgeously decorated and our photos turned out amazing. Our ballroom was breathtaking as we entered for the first time we both were taken back with how beautiful it was. During our reception Ms. Connie was wonderful she made sure we ate got our drinks and ensured that every part of our reception from greeting our guest, cutting our cake and first dances took place on time! I can’t thank Michael’s staff enough for making our day magical for us!!
Sarah, I just wanted to thank you and the staff at Michael’s for doing such a wonderful job at Katie and Dan’s wedding on Friday. Everyone had a great time and said the food was delicious. They also commented on the beautiful garden and most of the folks did not even know that the garden was there until the wedding. Tia and her girl in training, (sorry I can’t remember her name) and Connie were superb and took care of all of our needs upon and beyond what we expected. We look forward to going to another wedding at Michael’s and I would highly recommend your facility for any function large or small. Also everyone was commenting on how delicious the cake was and asked where we got it from. They could not believe it was made there. So please tell the pastry chef they can come over my house anytime and bake for me! Also someone asked if you can just order a cake from there, I told them I would ask. Thank you again for a beautiful wedding and making our daughter and son in law’s day truly special.
My husband, and I got married at Michael’s on June 27, 2015. The only word I can use to describe the ENTIRE experience is SUPERB”. Our wedding was Michael’s first all outdoor wedding (meaning that in addition to doing to the ceremony and cocktail hour outside, we also had our reception outside under the tent). Michael’s went above and beyond to make sure that everything was beautiful and flowed smoothly. I was somewhat nervous because this was their first outdoor reception, and on top of that, there were heavy thunderstorms the entire day of our wedding! In spite of all that, Michael’s still ensured that everything was beautiful. The food was excellent! The service was incredible! Michael’s is the best value you will find in all of Maryland! Special thanks to Sara, Tia, Connie and all the other staff for making our wedding a day that we will always cherish.
The place was perfect! The food was delicious.. The staff was considered and friendly. A great place to have any event. Did I mention that the food was delicious? Thanks to everyone at Michael’s my wedding was a success.
