I wanted a venue to hold just my wedding ceremony at that wasn't a church or a chapel. The Community House's outside white tented terrance was the perfect location! Working with the event coordinator, Sarah Tufts, was a breeze. She was extremely knowledgable, professional, and quick to respond to all email correspondance regarding my special day which is everything anyone could want in the person in charge of the production of your ceremony. In addition to that, she was very polite and easy to work with. :) I was able tp bring in my own paper lanterns and decorate the tent however I desired.

The site was very affordable. We got married on a Saturday and as long as we were off the grounds by 3pm it was only $300! Both inside and outside the Community House is gorgeous and great for picture taking with the bridal party. Across the street from the site, is a park with a fountain, benches, trees and all kinds of structures ideal for capturing beautiful photos.

I highly recommend this venue!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this place!! It beautiful inside and out! We had our wedding here with the ceremony outside on the tented terrace and the reception inside the ballrooms. My guests are still giving me compliments on how gorgeous our venue was and how attentive, nice and courteous the staff was! And working with Sara Tufts, the events coordinator, was a breeze! She was so understanding and made everything so easy. I'd definitely have another event here and recommend this venue to anyone!

My only complaint is that their paperwork makes it seem as though they are not willing to help the bride in any way. They said that they will not place anything and that they recommend hiring a coordinator. I panicked over this for months. In recent weeks, they have been very accommodating, and on our big day, they were fantastic. Every staff member had a smile and was very friendly and helpful. I wish we could have gotten off to a better start. They don't allow vendors to set up until 3 hours before the ceremony starts. This wasn't really emphasized before I signed the contract. It worked out, but this was one of the most expensive things: hiring extra people and paying people more money to make this timeframe work. Our ceremony went very smoothly because of their help, and you can't find a more beautiful setting for a wedding. Just be aware of the rules they have for setting up and the parking issues in that area.

The community house was just the finest location for our wedding!! From the exterior courtyard with a white tent for our cocktail hour, to the inside Wallace ballroom for our reception, it was just stunning! The building is fabulously beautiful and recently updated carpet, paint, curtains, upholstery, and more! I had such great confidence in working with Sarah in event planning and her patience and promptness working with me was just the best for any bride! The venue has a fabulous caterer, Epoch Catering, which I hired and I also highly recommend them too. Unbelievable food and service!

Sarah helped with vases for the tented area, contacting all my vendors for delivery information, anything I dropped off for set up, and much more. I was able to decorate the back courtyard by the ball room with twinkle lights for a quaint feeling with the pond there and the photos of the night were stunning!

I can't say enough good things of this place, it really made our day a dream come true. I highly recommend it!!
