We loved having our reception here!! Suzan and Henry were wonderful as well as Carolina. Our wedding reception went very smoothly!! I thought they were very reasonably priced as well. The only thing I wish was different was that they accepted credit card. Unfortunately it was check only.

When my husband and I first met with AEC we met with Henry. Henry was extremely helpful and friendly. He gave us so much information. We loved the appearance and liked working with him.

Our biggest upset with the venue, was that after the initial booking, we never saw Henry again. His wife, Susan, took over. Susan was not as friendly or professional. The planning with her was very frustrating at times. She was not flexible at all when it came to setting up and was quite rude to our DJ/groomsmen.

However, the overall experience was great. The venue is beautiful and at a good price. On the actual wedding day, everything ran very smoothly. The staff that was there serving was excellent. They were very attentive. We got to eat first which helped moved the wedding right along.

They were incredibly helpful. At the last minute I was unable to get the sparklers for my wedding. They gave them to me so that my day would still be just the way I wanted it. The food was amazing and everyone had a great time. It is especially great that they serve the bride and groom immediately, while everyone else is in line at the buffet. My groom, now husband, was so hungry and we were so worried everyone was going to talk to us while we were trying to eat, that we would not be able to.

Suzan and Henry run the AEC and did an excellent job for me from start to finish (presenting the venue, supporting the bride and accommodating my wishes). They were very responsive and organized and were available when I needed them. This venue was very reasonably priced and they rent linens in house and provide the catering, which takes out a lot of the hassle of finding vendors! I actually end up using another vendor for my napkins b/c AEC has colored linens, but only white napkins and I wanted lavender. Also, you are allowed to bring your own alcohol and they just charge the pour fee. Bartenders/staff are all included. Henry and Suzan also make recommendations for vendors they've enjoyed and you can trust that they only recommend good vendors. All of our guests absolutely loved the venue, the dance floor and they all raved about the food...it was genuinely delicious. I highly recommend AEC to any couple.

We held our reception at the Addison Event Center, and I cannot possibly recommend it highly enough. This venue was probably one of our two favorite vendors (along with our photographers). Henry and Suzan were so flexible and willing to work with me and my husband to make everything happen perfectly, even when we changed our minds about everything and went crazy in the last few weeks before the wedding.

You also really cannot beat the price. The venue is beautiful, and the food is excellent... and you would never, ever guess just how affordable it is. Because they also allow you to bring your own alcohol, you save tons of money.

Henry and Suzan made our wedding awesome. We really enjoyed working with them, and I would recommend them to anyone.

My husband and I had our wedding reception at this event center on October 1, 2011 and it turned out better than what we had hoped for! Susan and Henry were very helpful, easy to contact when needed, and were more than happy to help us with the DJ and photographer we were looking for. They were both very patient with us too and thank them for that! The reception venue is wonderful, they had the uplights we wanted, they had wonderful people working for them, and we were also able to have food tasting before deciding on our menu...and my favorite was the grilled vegetables!!! It was very convenient for us as they already had the things we needed for rent (and not have to rent it somewhere else). Our guests were pretty impressed considering we only had 2 months to plan our entire wedding, plus it didn't cost us an arm and a leg to have our unforgettable wedding party reception!

We would certainly recommend this place.

The DJ and photographer they had recommended to us were also great! They had done exactly what we wanted considering the price!!!

To Susan and Henry...thank you so much for making our wedding a memorable one not only for us but also for our guests!

Henry and Suzan were phenomenal. The center is absolutely beautiful, and they have done an excellent job creating a beautiful ballroom atmosphere at a reasonable price. The food was AMAZING and all I keep hearing from my guests is how awesome the food was. They were very accommodating and asked all the right questions to make the image in your head come to life. They were very attentive to detail and always helpful when I had questions, concerns, or if I wanted to do something a little non-traditional. I highly recommend Henry and Suzan @ AEC.

Henry and Suzan were so accomodating that I need a new word for "accomodating". They provided everything we requested and pointed out a few details that we'd overlooked. This is the only venue where I was allowed to bring in my own caterer (a friend from work whose work with at-risk kids I wanted to support), and Raymond (the chef) tells me that they were as accomodating to him as they were to my wife and me.

Here's an example of their attention to the "little things": Henry gave me an empty keg to take to the liquer store when I picked up the beer, to simplify the deposit logistics. They even stored some of the party equipment that we brought over for a couple of weeks while my wife and I went on honeymoon.

The acoustics in the room are great. The dance floor is a good size, and the flooring is solid and well-maintained. The furniture and decorations are professional-grade and in good repair. The flat- and table-ware was spotless. The staff was attentive without being intrusive (a very fine line to walk)

In short, I cannot imagine how anything could have been improved.

The Addison Event Center is a wonderful venue. Henry and Suzan were such a pleasure to work with from the very beginning. We were able to attend a mock rehearsal at the Addison Event Center prior to making a deposit. During the mock rehearsal we were able to taste the food and meet with several vendors that were preferred. We were so impressed we made a deposit and secured our date within a week! We highly recommend the Addison Event Center to future couples.

This place is a one stop shop. One side is for the ceremony and the other side is for the reception. The two ladies that we spoke to were very courteous. We went for a go-see rather quickly. They prepare the food and even serve drinks if wanted. The rooms were beautiful but had no windows. The restrooms were kept nicely which is very important for guests. The ceiling was tall which gave the room a very grande look and feel. The most beautiful chandelier hangs in the main room. If two rooms aren't needed, the wall can be removed to just have one.

Henry and Suzan were so helpful with everything! The food was great, and no one ever had to ask for a refill in their glass. We had forgotten at final payment to rent the stands for the alter arrangements and they decided to just let us have them. They are the kindest people and you can really see that they work hard to make the wedding exactly what the brides dream is.

Great value for the cost.

The location is great it Addison, but hard to find unless you put up signs for your guests since it is behind another building. Not the best for exit pictures.

The inside is BEAUTIFUL. We loved the walls and the set up. Middle dance floor with bride and groom at the head with all the guests to the left or right of the dance floor. We loved having the buffet line outside of the sitting area. The staff was great and asked us several times throughout the night what they could do to help us throughout the night.

The only complaint I have is about our exit. Throughout the planning process, I had asked Suzan what we should do (bubbles, sparklers, etc). She told us not to do sparklers because it would burn the carpet. I asked if we could do cut up paper and she said that would be great. At our last meeting before the wedding, we dropped off the paper and she blew up saying she told us to do sparklers the entire time. It was frustrating and stressful a week before the wedding to think we did the wrong thing. Everything turned out fine and our wedding party helped clean up the paper.

I would recommend this location to anyone that isn't looking for a location that has a beautiful outside of the building. This place is wonderful, but looks sketchy from the outside.

I am saddened that the previous owners of the Addison Event Center put such a negative light on this place, because I was thrilled with everything about my experience with the Addison Event Center. It's important that people give this place a fair chance.

First of all, the AEC is conveniently located off of Midway and Beltway in Addison, close to restaurants, nightlife, and several affordable hotels, which is ideal for out of town guests.

Secondly, the venue is very lovely, and was just the right size for our group of about 110 guests, but it could easily accommodate more. It has a nice large dance floor and plenty of space. There are 2 sets of french doors on one side of the room that open up into a nice hallway where the buffet line was set up. You can also choose a plated dinner if you like. We had enough room to seat everyone comfortably in the main ballroom, and yet the place looked like a full house.

Henry & Suzan were so great to work with, because they were very clear about all of the details up front. We knew exactly what to expect in terms of price, decorations, menu, service (bartender, waiters, etc) and so on. Also, they were pretty easy to get in touch with, and were flexible as far as making changes to the menu, decor, etc. We had several meetings before the big day and when it finally came, my husband and family and I were very confident in this venue. They had everything ready to go exactly as planned by the time the reception started. Henry and Suzan stayed at the venue all night, and were there to assist if anything unexpected came up (although everything went just as planned).

We ended up using several of the items they had for our decor. They had a large selection of nice silk tablecloths and napkins in several different colors, as well as large vases and LED lit-up stands to use for centerpieces. We were able to use all of these at a reasonable price. In addition, the food is fantastic. We received compliments all night! Another great thing about this place is that they allowed us to taste test most of the food way in advance, to figure out which menu choices we wanted. I also love that they had wait staff to come and refill drinks for our guests. Also, their bartenders were fantastic, and provided all of the mixers needed for our alcoholic beverages - all we had to do was provide the alcohol.

In my opinion, this venue is the best value for the price. There is a lot included, and the price is very reasonable when you consider everything. You will not be disappointed with Addison Event Center!

When I first booked the AEC for my reception I was dealing with D'Juna. At first I believed she was great!

However, I was out of town trying to plan my wedding and had a very difficult time getting a hold of her. Needless to say there were some moments of panic not knowing if I could count on her.

Six weeks before my wedding I called to schedule a food tasting and got in touch with Susan. I was informed that James and D'juna were no longer involved with the AEC and Susan and Henry were taking over. They were wonderful!

Obviously I was concerned about how things would turn out with new ownership in place, but Henry and Susan calmed all my fears. They took care of everything and the day went off without a hitch.

When I first booked the AEC for my reception I was dealing with D'Juna. At first I believed she was great!

However, I was out of town trying to plan my wedding and had a very difficult time getting a hold of her. Needless to say there were some moments of panic not knowing if I could count on her.

Six weeks before my wedding I called to schedule a food tasting and got in touch with Susan. I was informed that James and D'juna were no longer involved with the AEC and Susan and Henry were taking over. They were wonderful!

Obviously I was concerned about how things would turn out with new ownership in place, but Henry and Susan calmed all my fears. They took care of everything and the day went off without a hitch.

first do your research on djuna case-you will find a long history of deception and out-n-out theft. my wife and i understand there is no such thing as a perfect wedding but djuna didn't show up to a 5pm wedding until 830pm wearing sweat shorts. the lady she sent was so drunk she fell and cut her arm and then she took her bottle and locked herself in the storage closet becaus we "asked to many questions" my guests had to set their own tables up. the bartender didn't stay behind bar after she got drunk on our wine our guests had to cut their own cake. NO A/C. two waitresses to take care of 120 people one spoke no english. we saw many reviews like mine but ignored thinking it would be worth the price-i now know djuna & james case are preditors preying on people looking for a deal. The kitchen was filthy and plates and glasses had not been washed-if you are looking for the most embarasing moment of your life Djuna Case can help.

I had my wedding reception at Addison Event Center on January 12th, 2008. My reception did turn out nicely, though the few things that were messed up were completely D'juna's fault. She made me angry back in October, at which point I refused to have any further contact with her and my fiancee made all the other arrangements. So, here are my complaints:
1. Their 'monthly' tastings are not actually monthly. The only had 2 in between when we booked the site and when our reception took place. (If I had known there would only have been two, I would have went to the first one, which took place the week after we booked the place, but I was supposed to go out of town, so I figured I would catch the next one.) For the 2nd one, which was 2 months after the first, I was out of town for work, but coming back that night around 7:30pm. I emailed D'juna and told her the situation and told her that my fiancee would come and pick up the food and bring it home so I could taste it when I got home that night, since I figured I would not have enough time to get from DFW to Addison to get to tasting. She emailed me back and encouraged me to come, saying that as long as I could get there before 9pm there would be no problems. I knew I could make it by then, so I said okay. I got there slightly after 8pm, and D'juna says," Oh sorry, we ran out of food! You should have gotten here earlier!" Needless to say, I am beyond pissed, and at that point my fiancee become the point of contact for Addison Event Center.
2. When it was time to confirm our catering and pay the remaining payment, my fiancee made an appointment with D'juna to do so. However, D'juna did not shown up, so her husband, James, was there in her place. This would have been fine, except he had no idea what he was doing! He repeatedly made errors and had to recalculate our total about 4 times before he did it correctly. It was a very unprofessional situation and somewhat embarrassing to have to keep correcting him.
3. My fiancee contacts D'juna to see when would be a good time for us to set up the reception, deliver beer/wine before the reception. Instead of doing it when we wanted (after we got off work Thursday, or after the rehearsal dinner, Friday), she tells us to come Thursday at 12 noon. When we arrive, no one is there! My fiancee calls James Case, who says that the manager should be there. When my fiancee attempted to call Mr. Case back again after 45 minutes (and still no-show), he never answered. My fiancee leaves messages for both numbers and never gets a call back until 3:30 pm. So finally, when we arrive at 4pm, the 'manager' is there. So, we ended up doing it at the time we originally would have liked, except my fiancee could have spent the day working instead of waiting for someone to show up at Addison Event Center! To top it off, when we arrived, two other women were there waiting for D'Juna to show up, and she never did before they left.
4. When we were setting up, I noticed that there were several more tables than we needed (even with overseating) and that we didn't have enough favors to put at each place setting for these unneeded tables, so I asked the 'manager' to remove them (4 tables) before the reception, and he said he would. None of these tables had centerpieces or our favors. At the reception, the tables were still there, undecorated! And some of our guests had sat at one of them! I was so angry, and I could not understand why they didn't move the tables. I had to explain to the guests what happened, and fetch them favors from a nearby table.
5. This is the worst one...Now, D'juna is real big on being 'upfront' with the pricing and cost and such, which was great with me. That's why we paid the 19% gratuity applied to all of our catering and bar service costs. However, when I got my pictures back this week, I noticed a picture of the bar (which I had not even been to during the reception because D'juna kept brining us drinks--now I think I understand why). And there was a TIP JAR!!! I was so filled with anger when I saw this, because not only had we paid 19% grat. up front on all the liquor we brought, but we did not even use the entire keg or 3 cases of the wine, which we had still paid for 2 weeks prior. I am so embarrassed that some of our guests had actually put tip money in this jar. If I had seen it at the reception, I would have had a fit. I guess I am naive in assuming that there would not have been one, but I think D'juna is sneaky for not ever mentioning it. And the so-called manager---he was the bartender. And tips for serving beer and wine, no less? There weren't even any mixed drinks!!!
Anyway, that's my experience. I would not recommend them. Use this information as you see fit.

The Addison Event Center is a beautiful place however, the owner D'Juna does not have good business practice. After I booked the place I was told by a decorator to go to ask.com and search Djuna Case FT. WORTH TX, and to my suprise there was several stories about her and Better Business Bureau complaints as well. You can never reach her on the phone, you can leave message after message after message and you don't get a phone call back. Ladies take my advice I made it work and my wedding turned out very nice but it was by the strength of my husband and wedding coordinator I couldn't deal with that lady any longer. Just BEWARE!!!!

Used the lobby of the Addison Theatre for our reception; it was beautiful! Very modern but with natural roots with rock walls and a wall of windows looking out into the sculpture garden. Did not have to decorate much because art is already hung on the walls (changes seasonally). Extremely professional and courteous staff, and gorgeous location!

De'juana was very professional until the day of the wedding - when passed off her wedding coordinator to one of her employees who knew nothing of our wedding, what we wanted and what we had planned. The day turned out ok (with a few minor hitches) and Addison Event Center is beauty and a bargain of a price. Would cautiously recommend.

Great communication on pre-sale and sale of services, not very responsive before wedding up until 3 weeks before wedding, then all hands on deck. Caused a bit of stress, but the value was worth it!!! People thought we had a much more expensive wedding than we did. GREAT FOOD!
