    Beautiful wedding!

    Working with Le Challenger was so easy and made everything worry-free for us. Joe was always available to answer questions and understood what we wanted. The venue is beautiful and elegant, we were lucky enough to have great weather for an outdoor ceremony. The food choices were delicious, and Claude and Reza helped everything run smoothly throughout the night.

    We are so glad we chose Le Challenger to hold our wedding reception. The room was gorgeous, well maintained and very nicely decorated (which makes it much easier to adapt your own wedding decos to the room). The staff was so professional, we received so many good comments from our guests about how amazing they got served during the reception. As a bride who did not have a wedding planner, the team at the Challenger helped me keep everything on track and made sure our evening was perfect!
    I would recommend them to anybody!!!
    Thank you Joe Russo and your team!!!

    Great service, excellent quality

    We were very happy to have our reception at the Challenger. We had 240 guests and we were very comfortable in the Salle des Nations. We really liked that we had the whole upstairs floor to ourselves, and didn’t feel like we were crammed in with multiple other weddings, like we saw at other halls. We had our cocktail outside, which was beautiful. We only heard great comments about the food. Everyone ate very well and it was great quality. The staff was very friendly and respectful. Overall, it was also less expensive than other places we visited, but without sacrificing any of the quality
    We had two good friends of ours as wedding planners for the day, and it made a world of difference for us. They set up the hall for us and inspected everything before the guests arrived. A few of the seat cushions were dirty and the staff had them changed right away. They were also in contact with the staff all night, so we didn’t have to worry about anything. Everything went perfectly, and any small incidents were treated rapidly and efficiently by the staff.

    PMG's best

    Joe was wonderful in helping us accomodate our particular needs. Very responsive and understanding.

    The location functions like a well oiled machine, all vendors were very pleased in the way they were all able to make it all work. We went to several PMG locations and Joe was able to wow us.

    It ended up being a perfect night and we received many kuddos to the team at Le Challenger Piazza.
