The wedding and reception were exceptional!! We received so many positive comments about everything. Many of our guests felt it was the best wedding they had ever been too. The bride said it was all she could have imagined. The holding areas for the brides party and grooms party were perfect. And the wedding and reception area were beautiful.
Kara saw to our every need and kept me calm with all my questions and concerns and did it all with a smile. All of the staff we encountered were friendly, bright, attentive and professional. It was a frigid day and none of the staff complained as they escorted the wedding party for pictures in the stadium with smiles on their faces and enjoyed this special day for us.
Your attention to detail is to be commended, as well as your cheerful professionalism and coordination of all the vendors. You worked tirelessly through the night, always friendly and smiling. We were thoroughly impressed as were the bride and groom and our guests. It was a very meaningful day and I can't imagine it to have been any more beautiful than what we experienced from you and your staff.
Thank you very much. Words cannot express fully our joy.

When looking to make a special event even more "special," I contacted Cardinals Special Events to see about hosting a fundraising event at Busch Stadium. That was in 2015, and now in 2017, this will be our third time hosting our event at the ballpark. The venue is beautiful and unique, and our guests love taking pictures on the field. We opted to add the pitching in the bullpen and batting in the batting cages experiences, which people really get a kick out of and look forward to each year.
With such a beautiful venue, I thought we may have to compromise on the quality of the food, but that was not the case at all. The food was excellent, and our guests rave about the brisket.
As a coordinator for our largest fundraising event of the year, the most important thing is having quality, efficient partners to work with on events. There are so many tiny details that make a good event great, and that takes a lot of planning and preparation. The Cardinals event staff are phenomenal to work with. They communicate clearly, are creative and provide that extra level of service that creates a truly memorable event. I highly recommend this team of professional, attentive people who make it easy to have an excellent event.

Dear Cardinals Special Events team,
It's impossible to convey our true gratitude for such a wonderful party. The incredible food, the top-notch service, the setting, the helpful communication during all the planning -- start to finish, top to bottom, it was a great evening -- was really impressive by every single person involved.
It's still unclear who had more fun, parents or graduates, but it was an amazing evening!! Because of so much hard work, resourcefulness, tremendous time and incredible flexibility, you all made it happen, and for this, we all are so appreciative.
I can only assume Metallica made our night look easier, but I know how much you put into making the party absolutely perfect! My only concern is our younger son, Sam, who after seeing the photos and hearing about all the fun, asked, "Can they do it again in two years for my class, Dad?" :). I hope you all get some time off to relax soon this summer. In the meantime, let's get the Birds back on the winning track soon.
Thank you all again for making it happen, and for orchestrating such an amazing party. What a spectacular team doing these special events!!
I just wanted to tell you how much everyone enjoyed our party at Busch. Everyone (I'm not exaggerating) commented how great the venue was and how much they enjoyed the food! Thanks for making it a rousing success. Pass our thanks on to the staff. Everyone was great.

Our Wine & Whiskers event at the Redbird Club in Busch Stadium was beyond amazing. From the beginning planning stages to the end of the event, Courtney took care of all the details, making our event a huge success. All the skills that are necessary in her field were very apparent throughout a process that can be intimidating. Last-minute changes and requests (which were many) were handled with total professionalism. And the event was the night before Opening Day, which the whole company was surely busy preparing for, yet Courtney made us feel as though we were her only focus. We've held our event at this venue for many years, and hope to continue for many more years in the future. Thanks to Courtney and the Cardinals team for always taking such good care of our staff, volunteers and guests.

It was a night to remember for the rest of my life!
We have heard nothing but great comments from those who attended. I cannot thank you enough for all that you did to make this such a remarkable experience for all of us.
Thank you so much!
