Honestly when we first booked this place we loved it. Mary was so sweet and was on top of EVERYTHING for us. Now she no longer works there and the new girl they had replace her is TERRIBLE. I had every detail worked out November of 2014 and when i called them to check in on something the beginning of February the people couldn't even find my contract and wasn't even sure if my date was booked. Luckily we had proof of contract and were able to get in touch with the catering company in time to make sure they were still booked. The new women they had take over for Mary is horrible i have had two different detail meetings with her within the last two months and she never remembers anything we discussed previously and never gets in contact with me like she promises. I have called and left multiple messages for her to call me back and havent received a phone call back. Wedding planning is supposed to be a fun experience and honestly this is making it so stressful that its ruining it.

I got married at the Kemper Center 12/20/2014. The venue is absolutely stunning, and my wedding day went off without a hitch, but my experience planning with the Kemper Center staff was terrible. They are difficult to get in contact with as the staff is only at the center part time and rarely responds to emails. The staff member who gave the initial tour answered any questions we could ask, but when asked about prices could only offer up and "it's negotiable."

After our initial tour, I set up another meeting to sign a contract and discuss specifics of the wedding. When we showed up for the meeting, no one was there. After waiting for 20 minutes and calling the Kemper Center repeatedly, we got in contact with a different staff member who agreed to come to the Kemper Center and meet with us. She hand recorded all of the details of the wedding and agreed to mail it to me to sign. After two weeks of not receiving the contract, we called her only to be told it had been mailed. Two weeks later, still no contract. The Kemper Center agreed to mail it again. Finally, I received and signed it. Several weeks later, I contacted Kemper t0 set up a meeting to discuss the reception. To my shock, they didn't have any record of my reception on Dec. 20th - only that we needed the chapel. Luckily the reception hall had not been booked in the meantime and they were able to send me a revised contract. It took three times of revising and mailing the contract for the Kemper Center to finally get everything correct!

After we signed the contract,we were contacted by Kemper exactly once prior to the wedding to ask how many guests we would have…which they got wrong! We received no direction as to where and when to arrive at the Kemper Center, which parts we would have use of, or what needed to be done after the ceremony. The first time we saw a staff member the day of the wedding was halfway through the reception- and she didn't speak to a single person!

The venue is absolutely breathtaking. Inside and out. This building is historic and full of beautiful woodwork and stained glass. The alter is breath taking. The Kemper Center staff were extremely flexible, allowed changes to be made and always had our best interest in mind. The doors were open when we needed them to be, the facility was spotless, the bathrooms were all stocked with supplies, and any questions we had were always answered. I would definitely recommend this venue. We got some of the most amazing pictures here inside and out. In reading some of the other views, yes, brides have very high expectations and we want everything to go off with a hitch. In reality, that rarely happens. Was the coordinator a little scattered at times? Yes. I cannot even imagine all of the things they have to coordinate and her partner had quit. Cut them some slack.

Mary ,

Thank you again for al of your help with when it came to our wedding.

St. Marys Chapel was a perfect setting for us!! It is gorgeous inside and was just what we wanted.

The Chem Lab was for cocktail hour was set up wonderful. Everyone loved reading the history from the photos on the wall.

Founders Hall was just the right size for us. We didn't want a huge wedding. We wanted the very closest family and friends. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Well maybe there is one thing. Staying past midnight (HAHA).

I would recommend this venue to other brides and grooms.

The chapel and entire venue at the Kemper Center is gorgeous. I could not have found a better place to have my wedding ceremony. The contacts do not offer much help other than in showing the venue, booking the event, and changing dates. Other than that they seemed to stay out of the picture, which was good for me but if you are looking for a venue who will really assist in planning other aspects of your event I am not sure that will be available here. All in all I loved the wedding I had here and the service was always friendly. I would recommend to other brides.
