everyone was wonderful with the whole process, from planning, to carrying out all of our wishes for our wedding day. I have very severe food allergies and they went above and beyond to change the menu to make sure everything was safe. The whole staff was just wonderful, we keep getting rave reviews from our guests on how wonderful it was.

My sister suggested looking at the PNC Reception Center for my wedding after she had looked there for her wedding in 2011. The place is private and only throws one event at a time, so the place will be yours on your special day. The prices were hard to beat, which is a huge part of why we booked our wedding here. We decided to book after our first tasting. The food is delicious and there are so many options and that's before we even looked at the upgrades! My event planner's name was Kevin, who was very easy to work with and pretty much let us decide whatever you wanted, which ended up biting me in the behind... a month before my wedding, I received a letter in the mail stating that he was no longer my event consultant. When I called and spoke to Andy, the owner, he was not very easy to speak to and made me feel like I was bothering him. His wife took over as my event planner, but after trying to reach her several times I received an email from Kevin stating that he was going to stay my event consultant. I was disappointed in a lot of the communication, but in the end, it turned out to be a wonderful event.

Carol Biafore and everyone at PNC Reception Center are AMAZING! Our ceremony was in the beautiful East Garden, followed by the reception inside. The food was fantastic. Weeks later, I am still being told by our guests how great everything was. They went above and beyond our already high expectations. Carol was fantastic in every way possible. She seemed to know whenever I needed her before I knew myself. Our ceremony and reception were beautiful thanks to her and the staff.

We hosted our June 23rd wedding at the Merri Makers Reception Center located at the PNC Bank Arts Center. They really did an amazing job. The food was delicious. They have a spacious bridal suite for your bridal party to relax and freshen up in. You have a server personally assigned to you all night, which is a wonderful perk. The cocktail hour space has indoor and outdoor seating. The ballroom is a nice size, but not too big for our 120 person wedding. It's a nice space which can only hold one event at a time, so you don't have to share your space with another wedding. They have two ceremony sites (in case there is a concert the evening of your wedding). We were at the Enchanted Forest site. When I saw the Enchanted Forest site it was very hard for me to visualize what the cermony would look like. Once the chairs and flowers were all set up, it really looked wonderful! All of our guests were directed to this site and had no trouble finding it. The ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were all run so smoothly! Carol was running our show that night and she was absolutely wonderful! I really felt completely stress free. I know that a lot of brides say how the whole night was a blur, and they didn't get to eat dinner or spend lots of time on the dance floor. I feel completely the opposite. I had such a blast at my wedding (and was able to eat some delicious filet mignon, too!) Thanks to Carol, Rose and the whole crew at Merri-Makers, I will have memories to treasure for a lifetime!

I recently had my wedding reception at PNC, and it was amazing!! The cocktail hour was beautifully set-up and allowed guests to choose either an indoor or outdoor seating area. The food was delicious--and yes the B&G ate at the cocktail hour! The ballroom decoration and set-up was close to perfect. The main entrees were delicious, according to guests' feedback. The service on the wedding day was excellent! we asked for a 6 hr reception instead of the standard 5, and they did it at no extra charge! No other venue would do this. There were several things we asked for and they did them at no extra charge. The one thing that upset me was the cake (which is provided by a contracted bakery). It was not the exact one we picked in terms of appearance. The pillars in between the cake layers were soooo tall and made the cake look tacky. Otherwise, everything was excellent! Carol, our Maitre' D and event consultant was amazing and accomplished every detail we had requested for! Leading up to the wedding day, I had so many questions and special requests, which were all addressed in a timely fashion and with great customer service! She never made me feel annoying for calling so much, lol. Thank you PNC for making our wedding so beautiful and memorable :)
