“My special thanks goes to the entire team that made our event so special. The catered food was amazing – all three entrees were prepared beautifully and rivaled any downtown restaurant in quality.  There were no shortage of comments from Dad, Mom, and our guests on how beautiful the venue was, how wonderful the staff treated them and how memorable the well coordinated event!  It was everything I imagined it would be!”
– Jan Durwood, Durwood Family event

“You made NAFSA look really good to our attendees. You were so easy to work with, we are very pleased with what a success the Opening Reception was in the Live Block.”
– Leslie Murray, NAFSA Convention Planner

“We had so many wonderful comments about the Midland and how nice and helpful all the employees were. Of course the venue speaks for itself. The Midland is simply the "fairy tale" place to host a wedding.”
– Barb Gangel, Mother-of-the-Bride, Midland Wedding

“I want to let you know how pleased we were with the reception. The venue, the food and the staff all more than met the high standards that have come to be expected by our reception attendees. People were still talking about the AIFS reception all day Friday.”
– Kerry Geffert, AIFS Reception
