Everyone was helpful, kind, and easy to work with. Food was great! You tell them what you want and they get it done - just like I envisioned it! Really made the experience less stressful from a bride's stand-point! Would do it all again just as it was!

Celebrations is an amazing site on the Swift Creek Reservoir. They have three different sites to choose from. We chose the Manor house. It is private and very close to the water which is what we were going for. Christina and the Celebrations crew are amazing to work with and will make your vision of your event come to life.

Neither the groom or I were wanting to spend endless hours researching, planning, scheduling and coordinating; so using Celebrations was the perfect choice for us. They have multiple picturesque locations on the property to choose from, a one-page preferred vendors list, an awesome wedding coordinator (Christina) who helped keep us on track and have fun and a fantastic caterer, Debbie. They made everything very easy for us and worry free which helped us enjoy every part of our wedding.

With Celebrations, our wedding day was exactly as I imagined it and completely relaxed and stress free. Christina (the wedding coordinator) is incredibly helpful both during the planning and the day of coordination! I've never heard of a bride getting to eat on her wedding day, but Christina had plates waiting for us pre-made before the buffet opened! She is incredibly thoughtful and remembers important details that you never would have thought of yourself. I can not recommend Celebrations on the Reservoir more highly! Thanks to the whole team!

I had the perfect wedding the the Manor House! The event coordinator, Christina, helped keep me on track with every step of planning. The venue was absolutely gorgeous; my entire family and all my friends were very impressed with how beautiful it was. Also, Christina was there on my wedding day and made sure everything went smoothly. All I had to worry about on my big day was having a blast with my guests and my new husband! The price was a little more than other venues, but it included a lot more, such as the linens, tables and chairs (which were very nice). I did not have to rent anything or deal with set up/ break down. The little extra money up front saved us a lot of stress and headache! I would not have changed a thing!

It was a true fairy tale!!! They have a beautiful venue that makes you feel as if you are tucked somewhere far away --- yet, it's such a short drive to hotels at the end of the evening. The staff was all so friendly. Christina was our evenT coordinator. She went above and beyond the entire time. Answering ALL my emails so quickly, calmed any worries I had, and made my wedding day just perfect. THANKS CELEBRATIONS!!!!

Christina! Christina! Christina! She made our day so special and perfect!! I was a wreck, like all brides worrying about every detail and Christina was my rock!! She was organized, prepared, always one step ahead & insured we weren’t bother by anything besides enjoying our special day. My husband and I got married on November 9th at Encore, we ended up having a larger turnout then we thought we would have and I worried there wouldn't be enough room for everyone…. But not Christina she handle everything. We will book events in the future at Celebrations because of Christina! If you choose to host your wedding or event at Celebrations, you won’t be sorry, from the great food and fun bar staff and ask for Christina! SHE’S THE BEST!!

My wife and I were very pleased with Celebrations at the Reservoir. We had quite a bit of rain on our special day. However, my wife was able to relax and enjoy her day without a worry; it was evident that our wedding planner, Christina, had it all together. It shows how much she truly cares. The food was fantastic. We still hear from our guests how much they enjoyed Celebrations. THANKS!

Celebrations is a beautiful venue that has catering on-site, wedding coordinators for assistance, and several vendors they work closely with. Everyone there was very helpful and responsive to my questions in the planning process. They were also flexible when I changed my mind about several different things! I had a wonderful experience working with Celebrations and would highly recommend them.

I was thrilled. If I could do it over again, I would do it all the same. The Wedding Planner was great. The food was to die for & was the talk of the night.

I know everyone says there is no such thing as a "perfect" wedding day, but that is exactly what it was, PERFECT, PERFECT in every way possible. The staff jumped through hoops to make sure my guests were happy, and that I was well taken care of on my big day. My event coordinator had planned everything to a "t" that I had asked for, and was two steps ahead of me on everything else. The food was everything that we had hoped for and was the talk of the night. The night flowed unbelievably smoothly. If there was something I could re-do, I wouldn't, it was nothing less than perfect. I rate Celebrations at the Reservoir with an A++++!

They were extremely flexible with me, as I wanted to get married at one of their reception sites instead of a ceremony site. Together we figured out how to make the wedding and the reception beautiful. I could not have asked for anything more!

The physical setting is great, and the tent is surprisingly roomy and can be lovely (Manor House). The wedding coordinator that they provide is an absolute lifesaver -- even though she'd heard questions and worries like ours dozens of times, she was always kind, helpful and just so competent. The day-of coordination took ALL the stress off -- can't imagine what it would have been like to try to do it ourselves. And the food was absolutely SPECTACULAR! Really top notch. Re. the site: pros are that you have this lovely venue looking over the water amidst trees, the coordinating and food are fantastic, you can have candles on your tables and sparklers at the end of the night (it's in Powhatan, one of the few places near RIC that allows sparklers), and there's a great space for the bride/maids to get ready. Cons: you have to have a DJ (no bands allowed because of noise ordinances) we needed to hire a bus for the under 30 crowd to make sure everyone got home safely -- long way out on twisty roads, and the Manor House building itself is, well, not very much like a "manor" -- kind of like an overgrown Brady Bunch house with columns in the front. Luckily no one really notices or remembers the house because the action all takes place on the lawn or in the tent. The tent holds a lot of people comfortably (we were 153, seated dinner) with a great dance floor space.

Everyone who came to the wedding commented on the beautiful location! There are three ceremony locations which correspond to their own reception location. We got married at The Landing and had our reception at the Pool Pavillion. It was the perfect location for our wedding, and I'm really happy we went with Celebrations. Additionally, the staff there were super nice and professional.

My husband and I fell in love with Celebrations when we visited. It was wonderful to have a venue close to Richmond but still on the water. We were at the Manor House, which is set up above the reservoir. The venue was beautiful, and went off without a hitch. Part of the package with Celebrations is a wedding coordinator. We didn't hire a wedding planner - no need for us really - but having the coordinator there (we had Heather, she was fantastic) made the site worth it by itself. Heather was amazing in the pre-planning (deciding on all those little details) as well as on the day. She made it so easy to be "in the moment" because I knew that she was taking care of everything. It was just another "turn key" characteristic about Celebrations - wedding coordinator (day-of), food, beverages, rentals, tent, reception, ceremony site all rolled into one. Though it is definitely not on the cheap end, I would say it was a good value.

I loved Celebrations from the beginning. It's on the Swift Creek Reservoir and the setting is absolutely amazing. They have three ceremony locations and three reception sites, and each is extremely unique. They include an on-site coordinator, which was very helpful but we only met a few times and I wish they had had a few more coordinators (they have two) so that they could spend more time with each couple. But my husband is a marine and due to deployment schedules we had to move our date up from May 2009 to October 2008, and they were extremely willing to work with us with only a few months notice.

Celebrations was great, but I think it was a little overpriced. The in-house caterer (Morris Hicks) is wonderful and our guests raved about the food, and the in-house florist (Sharon) is so sweet. Our guests raved about how beautiful the wedding was, and I would change nothing if I had it to do over again.

It was the most perfect day & using Celebrations was the reason it all went off without a hitch. our Mistress of ceremonies said that things would go wrong, but their job is to take care of it so I would never know. She was right.

The wedding was beautiful and all our guests had a wonderful time. That being said, there are a few things that I wish we had known ahead of time. We had a bit of a mixed bag. The venue is beautiful. We used the Landing (giant dock) as the ceremony site and the Pool Pavilion for the reception. Alyssa was great and open to all our ideas. Like others who have reviewed, we sometimes had a lag in communications..but things were handled. There are things to keep in mind. If you use the pool pavilion, make sure that all of your guests can sit on the first floor. Anyone that you seat in the loft will NOT be able to see or interact with the main group. Also, the DJ and dance floor are out by the pool. Make sure your DJ brings a setup that includes some sort of speaker for the inside. It was hard to hear the announcements. When they say the reception must end by 11pm, they mean it. When the dinner was cleared, they took everything. Folks went back later for more cake and there were no plates or silverware available. At the end of our event, they were stripping tables at 10:30 and wanted us out of the building immediately after 11pm. Also, ask for a receipt for every payment you make. They do not give you one as a matter of course, and it would have come in handy when we had a difference of opinion on payment amounts. The parking is VERY confusing. We would still have chosen Celebrations, but would have changed how we handled some things!

Celebrations was a beautiful location and we were very happy with it for our wedding. It is fairly pricey though, we ended up having to scrimp on a lot of other things because we chose Celebrations. They provided a wedding coordinator and a mistress of ceremonies, which was quite helpful for me (since I did all the planning myself), although in many cases I felt that I would have been better off just being able to speak directly with the chef or the caterer, etc. They were also a bit difficult to get in touch with at times, which got frustrating. At times they seemed fairly stuck on "the way things should be", which I didn't like because my husband and I are more about making it fun and enjoyable than making it proper, but they always let me have my way without too much fuss, and they were able to give good suggestions as to ways that I could improve upon my own ideas. The only complaint I had was that the catering staff didn't seem to know exactly what it was they were serving (I had a vegetarian meat substitute, but the servers told my vegetarian guests it was an organic meat, so they didn't get to eat it). I would recommend Celebrations as a venue though, since the setting is beautiful and the staff really were professional and helpful. Just give yourself plenty of time to work through all the details with them.

My husband and I had a wonderful time at our wedding; it was everything we wanted it to be. The venue is beautiful and the food is amazing thanks to Carolyn. The day-of staff at our wedding was nothing short of fabulous and did everything they could to make sure everything went smoothly. However, we did have a few issues and I wish that Celebrations had made the planning phase of the wedding easier.

We never received an estimate even though we were promised one. I was able make a spreadsheet with my own estimate based upon what was in the contract and on the catering documents. My payments were based upon my estimate and we were lucky that I was not very far off at all.

We did not receive the final bill from Celebrations until the day it was due- I had to ask for it that week, in fact. The first bill we were sent was wrong (they used our estimated number of guests instead of our actual number, which I had e-mailed them) and it took several hours to get a corrected bill.

We used Celebrations shuttle service to transport our guests to and from the hotel. I wish I had spent more for an actual transportation service. The shuttle says “Celebrations” on the side, but there was no sign with our names and the driver never checked that he had passengers who were going to our wedding. Thus, when he arrived at the venue on the first run, it was discovered that 2/3 of the people on the bus were for a wedding at another venue. Rather than return to the hotel, drop them off, and pick up my passengers for the second run, he took them to the other venue. My guests (who were the ones I’d paid to transport) were stranded. It worked out, but that was thanks to the hotel and NOT Celebrations.

I would tell people that the venue is great and we wouldn’t have changed anything, but be cautious and careful about tracking estimated costs, know when your payments are due, and use another transportation service, not their shuttle.

I got married in April 2013 and used Celebrations' Manor site for both my ceremony and reception. I loved the view of the lake, the outdoor spring feel and the Southern feel the house provided.

What I was disappointed in was the service. I am a detail oriented person and have a design degree. My mom and I met with our venue contact multiple times and though that things could have been more organized. Lots of communication was done through email and a lot of miscommunications occurred, adding to the frustration of planning. Especially over food and table arrangements. We were told that 12 would fit comfortably at each table, which was untrue and we had to switch it to 11 at the last second. Also, the setup team seemed inexperienced as I had to tell them that there was suppose to be a dance floor. Also, when we got there the bathrooms were still not cleaned from the night before and there were some pipes and boards laying behind some bushes right by the cocktail hour.

You have to use their catering, or pay a fee. They have events where you can taste the food, but if what you want isn't at the tasting there isn't a way to try it out before the wedding.

Also, there seemed to be a lack of services provided. They did not have highchairs, limited linens or a backup tent for the rain. You hire out a tent through another company, but they can jack up the price right before your wedding (it doubled from what we were originally told).

After helping plan some of my friends weddings and planning my own, I would love to work at Celebrations because it is a gorgeous venue and just needs some detail oriented people and training of its staff. A friend also used Celebrations and ran into similar issues.

I recently had my wedding at Celebrations. The food was wonderful, all of our guests loved it. The venue is beautiful but everything is extremely overpriced. My wedding planner was very flighty and forgot things often, my mother was doing the majority of setting up on our wedding day because the planner could not be found. Everything was very rushed at the end, we had to find our planner and remind her that it was time for our last dance and exit. Wedding planners need to be very detail oriented and on top of things, mine was not. If I could go back I would elope.
