Why are we all-inclusive?

Host and owner, Greg Carlyle, knows that being recognized for the epitome of excellence does not come easy. It has had to be proven with every one of the 1,000 plus weddings he has hosted. He knows perfection is best never left to chance. So Greg decided that all the magic has got to come from The Millennium Center team and our trusted vendors. The result is near perfection, rave reviews and a value that’s hard to beat.
