Rachel, our wedding coordinator/caterer that helped us was great! She went over all details with us and was super flexible when I changed a million things on her the week of the wedding, she was available and ready to help all the time.
The night of the wedding everything went really well!! The serving staff was very friendly and attentive, and everything went smoothly.

The only thing that I heard from other guests was that the bartenders were not so nice and kind of rude at times. and the bar was closed during dinner when we had asked for it to stay open, and thats when the bartenders werent very nice.
But anyway, overall it was a great choice. Food was delicious and everyone had a great time!

Joy Kubat at the Radisson was so wonderful to work with. She was very pleasant and professional and was willing to cater to our special requests. We were very happy with the way the night went overall. The room was set up perfectly, the food was delicious and we received many complements from our guests! I would definitely recommend the Radisson as venue for a wedding reception or any other event!

I had my wedding reception at the Radisson on May 10th. I had an overall good experience with the venue, and loved the room I rented. The only hiccups I had in service was the wrong vegetable being served with all my dinners, despite correcting the error several days prior. They offered a free breakfast coupon for the issue. I did have to request the dance floor to be bigger, which was done, and I'm very grateful for that. Overall it was a great event, and I'm glad I chose Radisson. I do wish I got answers to the issues faster, but overall things went well.

Having our reception at the Radisson was great. The food tastes good, the service is great, and they are willing to help in some areas of set up. However, don't plan on getting in there early enough to decorate anything yourself. You will need to hire someone to do setup for you.

We got married at the Paper valley as well as everything else was there.

Overall till the week before wedding they were flat out amazing. then we got a charge they didn't tell us about (was in contract) just not told about it but told us about everything else, so suprise fee to us but was there all along.

The wedding day itself:

We did get our room check in early after I ran into a manager and asked if we could have one room to put our stuff into.

Everything on their part setup wise was prefect, food tasted great! we had package with free beer, and I was drinking non "free drinks" which they kept bugging me about to pay (groom, with a room and $500 in back up in case we overspent) could of been brought up better or handled at check out, knew I had to pay.

They refused to serve one of our guests they was on the guest list, had to fight to get him food which he got after everyone else was done eating.

We had the reception in the Empire ballroom which was great, closer to end of the night we were told we had till noon to clean up, so my now wife left her bouquet done there(which maybe she shouldn't have but figuring you have till noon you don't think about it) We left for the night to go to our room around 12:30am

We were up and downstairs to start cleaning Empire Ballroom at 7:15am and they had thrown away her bouquet, which we had to grab out of the trash and had some of our other flowers thrown away as well. They had all of our stuff in a corner of the room at this time.

After talking to the manager "I will have to look into this" so we shall see if we hear from them.

We found out someone left us a card at the front desk after we left, we had someone stop back they said they delievered it to the room early in the morning.

Which was nowhere to be found, so waiting to see the outcome of the card and the rest still..

We were beyond happy with all aspects of our wedding at the Radisson Paper Valley. From my very first email to Jessica, she was attentive and quick to respond and was accommodating with my requests and changes during the course of the year we planned our wedding. We had our ceremony in the courtyard and it proved to be a great place to hold this event. The food and ambiance during the reception were also great. Traci was there the day of our event and was always there if we had a question or needed something. Everyone from the catering staff, servers, bartenders, security and front desk people were so great to us and our guests.

My husband and I chose this venue because it is one of the few spaces in the Fox Valley that is able to hold an event for more than 250 people. If there had been another option, we would have picked it.

At one time, the Paper Valley was THE reception site for a wedding in Appleton. Unfortunately, much of their facility and their practices are very outdated. The event staff never went beyond their duties unless we asked them for specific things, and there were plenty of details that were missed. I found myself repeating details and plans we had gone over before.

The food is average banquet food--nothing special. The space is an average ballroom. If you want to create something unique, you'll have to bring in lots of rentals and decor.

We used the courtyard for our cocktail hour, which was a very nice addition to the day. Guests really seemed to enjoy the space. It was also nice to have our reception at a hotel, so guests could just go to their rooms after the wedding.

Because our wedding was on a Friday, we received a number of discounts and promotions. However, the food and beverage was still quite expensive for the quality of service we were getting. I can't imagine what our bill would have been had our wedding been on a Saturday.

All in all, this venue is just so-so. Our wedding was beautiful, and I wasn't unhappy with the reception. But this was because we added lots of extra details, linens, and decor, to make the wedding our own. If you're looking for a large ballroom to accommodate more than 250 guests, this might be one of your only options. But if you're looking for a unique, beautiful atmosphere and a venue that serves delicious food and will provide great service, this isn't it.
