Words truly cannot express just how happy we were with choosing Schauer for our reception venue. The moment we met Amy we felt incredibly confident that we would be in great hands and we were so right! Amy is such a pleasant person who was super professional and accommodating throughout the entire planning process. Schauer is a beautiful venue. We absolutely loved having the Suckow Art Gallery and Automotive museum open for cocktail hour and guests seemed to really enjoy this as well! All in all we highly recommend working with Amy and choosing Schauer for your wedding venue!

Amy was the BEST and the space is quite easy to transform into almost any vision with the assistance of Amy. I've been planning corporate events for 40 years and have never enjoyed the planning as much working with anyone else. I highly recommend you call Amy to start planning your amazing day at the Schauer Arts Center... you will not be disappointed with the venue or the service!

Absolutely wonderful!
The event coordinator, Amy, was fabulous to work with. She even took time to answer questions for me on her day off.
