My husband and I had our reception at the Grand Ballroom in Butler, a venue owned and operated by JPC Event Group. We were assigned Rick as our event manager. I think Jen typically handles the events at the Grand Ballroom and our experience with her on the day of our event was very positive.

We got many positive comments on our food and we were overall pleased with everything JPC had to offer. Our wedding was in Grove City, PA and this venue allowed us to have a high quality reception without having our guests travel to Pittsburgh.

Our major complaints were the communication breakdowns in the last few weeks leading up to the wedding. We received an incorrect meal/decor contract 3 weeks out which caused a lot of unnecessary stress-- especially when it took several days to make contact with someone over the issues. Maybe I was looking for more communication than the industry standard, but I was disappointed with the communication/feedback we received for the amount of money we paid.

Our guests were served a different potato than we requested (not a huge deal, but we did sign a meal contract) and each table was to have a gold organza runner (which we paid extra for) that we were told would be on the tables for our reception when we asked inquired why the runner was not on the table during table set-up a 2 days prior to our event.

The venue allows renters to bring in their own alcohol which is a nice perk and a great way to save money-- this was something we looked for specifically in a venue and JPC was one of the few places we found that option.

Overall, our experience with JPC was positive and I would suggest it to a friend. There are certainly things to be aware of when signing a contract with JPC. In the big picture, these challenges were minor and we ended up having a beautiful reception in a beautiful venue.

I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful it was to work with everyone on the JPC Event Group team! From our very first meeting we knew that we were in good hands! When we met our "day of" coordinator Liz, she was just amazing! She was so friendly, professional, attentive, and detail-orientated. She really made everything go so smoothly. We could not have picked a better catering company! The food was so delicious (Thank you so much, Chef Rohn) and we received so many compliments on it! The JPC Event Group staff really helped to make our special day even more special. They went above and beyond! We highly recommend them!!!

I would absolutely recommend JPC Event Group to a friend. I had feedback such as "the best wedding food I've ever had." My husband and I enjoyed the packed up left overs for days after the wedding. Jen, our event coordinator was one of the most flexible vendors I worked with during the entire wedding planning process. Her quick e-mail responses and attentiveness to detail was so refreshing. I hope to attend another wedding in the future that JPC is catering so I can enjoy their delicious food again.

JPC and all of the people there (especially Jen) are phenomenal. I was still getting compliments on the food a few weeks after the reception. I personally enjoyed everything as well

Jen was so amazingly attentive to us (the bride and groom) during the reception, almost to the point where I felt bad, like we were stealing her attention from other goings on! I would recommend JPC to anyone I care about

The only hard part was traveling to them (we live in the South Hills), but even still, I would recommend them!

There are not enough words to express how amazing our food and event planning services through JPC were. We came into our first meeting with a rough idea of what we might want and how we thought we wanted things to be. Jen and the rest of the JPC staff were able to take what I had in my mind and make it reality. When we first saw our venue the night of our wedding, I cried, because everything was perfection. I can't thank JPC enough for making my wedding amazing.

We did food stations and these peoples put on an impressive show. The food was fabulous, delicious! Jen waited on us hand and foot. We were truly king & queen for the day. They decorated for us too and sans one electrical snafu, they did a great job! I wish we could have more parties catered by JPC Events and Jen. Jen did everything we needed and more. Thanks for wonderful memories.

JPC Event Group was our caterer and also the owner of our reception hall, the Grand Ballroom in Butler. Rick was excellent! He helped us develop a menu that would work with our small budget, kept in touch via email, and was willing to meet with us in person too. The space is absolutely beautiful, and it's huge! The staff was great the day of, with everything from the great food buffet to cutting the sheet cake.
I only had two issues, and they were both minor. The first, I had been told in writing that I would only have to make one payment because of the size of our reception. I received a bill for a first payment (that I shouldn't have owed), and when I tried to email them about it, I had to ask several times before I received a response.
The other issue was that the reception hall was suppose to be unlocked by a certain time that morning so that my friends could get in there to decorate. The staff member didn't show up with the keys until an hour later! Luckily, my friend took care of the situation for me, but it could have been a "panic" moment.
All things considered, I would definitely use this venue again. They were great at helping us to create our perfect reception!

We planned from DC and only met with Rick once during the year of our wedding planning so I can truly say that he was "responsive" and we went into our reception with no worries. Our food was so delicious and the flowers were gorgeous and lasted so long after the wedding also. They helped us hire entertainment and an officiAnt also that we enjoyed. The ballroom space that he recommended was so beautiful and new looking as it had been renovated recently. Many items came included with the space so that helped us save on rentals. An all around good experience with great memories and I would recommend them and the ballroom.
