Celebration Cinema's The Wave Room was a beautiful location for our reception. Many of our guests complimented on our reception location because it was so fun! It looked beautiful all set up. The catering provided was exceptional. There was a great variety of food options to choose from. Our dinner was delicious, and many of our guests commented on how good it was. I've worked in catering for 5+ years and the service that The Wave Room provided was by far some of the best I've seen. The staff was very friendly and professional. April, the Coordinator, was great to work with. She was very professional and organized with all of our details. Overall, we had an amazing day. The Wave Room gave us a beautiful reception location, excellent food, full bar, and many memories, all for a great price!

Great value, I just wish I would have had slightly more professional service for a wedding, but- the $1000 we saved on food allowed us to have a better honeymoon. And- the waveroom is really affordable.
April was good, but kind of hard to get ahold of. However- if you are going for a well planned out budget wedding- I do in fact reccomend this place.

Celebration! Catering provided the catering for my wedding off-site, including hors d'oeuvres and a plated dinner. The food was good, they were flexible about their menu, and the staff on the day was excellent. There were a few small glitches that I didn't expect, including that they did not have white tablecloths for rectangular tables, only for rounds, so we had to buy/rent tablecloths and skirts for our head and appetizer tables.

We had our reception at celebration cinemas wave room. Went for the tasting and everything was awesome. We went with the plated dinner, about $22 a person, and the food was awful. We had prime rib, it was overcooked and flavorless and not to mention they served it with A1 steak sauce?!?! Staff for catering absolutely was awful and didnt know what they were doing. Our second menu choice was this breaded chicken and I beleive it was like a mustard sauce, which during the tasting was amazing... not so much for our wedding.. it was awful and soggy. If you are having your wedding there I would suggest going with another catering service. Owe I did get an apology call from the chef.. wahoo. Nothing can change having awful food at your wedding.. its suppose to be your perfect day and the one thing I thought I could count on was good food and with Celebration catering that was definitely not the case. (the hors devours were good though, cheese and fruit haha)

Owe and I almost forgot... we did a cash bar for mixed drinks... the bar ran our of liquor because they forgot to order it for our wedding so they had like half bottles to start with. Seriously unorganized. :(

On another note working with a lady named April there was an absolute pleasure. As for setting up the room and everything that was all very nice. Excellent venue, awful catering.
