Had our wedding here just last month, and the place was absolutely awesome! When we started planning, the main thing we wanted was a great band, and great food. St. Clements Reception really came through! The food was amazing! Cocktail hour had really great food, from the shakes and sliders to the mac and chees martinis, everything was just perfect. Every wedding I have been to, you eat at cocktail hour and by the time dinner comes around your still to full to eat anything at dinner, but fortunately the food looked and tasted to good, so no matter how full everyone was, we all just kept eating. This venue was an amazing value, and they were really easy to work with. It made planning a wedding enjoyable because we knew that everything was covered and taken care of. When our Photobooth person didn't arrive on time, the maitre d' was immediately on top of it, and called the vendor, who was lost and provided him with directions. I am looking forward to my friends getting married so I can suggest using the same venue, because there is nothing more that I would like to do than go back there and get to experience everything from the guests side. As for anyone reading this, I would highly suggest giving this place a look. It is definitely worth it!

Hi Tara,
Thank you and your staff for our Wonderful, Fabulous Wedding.
Omg everyone is talking about what a good time they had and how wonderful the food was. I knew from the moment I came there to view the place I wanted to have my our wedding there. I had never thought I could afford the venue but thanks to you and your staff our dreams came true.
No one gave me personalize service like you did. You made me feel like we were old friends. At The Reception Center it did not matter how big or small our budget was you guys were able to work with us. We absolutely love the whole place. I can not thank you and the staff enough. You guys really made our day special. Tears of Joy.

Thank you and God Bless
Mr. and Mrs., Carnegie

My husband and I got married on 6/27/15 and we could not have a picked a better place! Tara and her team made everything we wanted perfect. And, we had bought a cake from somewhere else (we decided on this before choosing anywhere) and without hesitation, we were offered a cupcake tower instead. (Other places we went to only responded with "you still have to pay for the cake" and offered nothing in exchange.) To the chef and his team, the food was absolutely amazing! And looked just as great! ... The room lighting was exactly what we wanted and everything from the candy bar to the placement of the photo booth was perfect! I seriously think we could not have had a better place if we made it ourselves! Thank You so much to the Reception Center, you honestly were the best choice we made!!

Clement was by far the best decision we made in the wedding planning process. Our original venue lost their lease about a year from our wedding date, so for about a week we were in a total panic.

A friend told us about The Reception Center, so we decided to give it a try. From the moment we walked into the venue, we knew we were going to be very happy here. Not only did Mark, and later Tara, completely put us at ease with everything a reception entails, they were very upfront with everything. The room is beautiful, the service was excellent and the food was the best I have ever had at a wedding- we got married in May and people are STILL talking about how delicious the food was.

The Reception Center is the perfect place to have your wedding reception- the staff is caring, the pricing is a perfect value and the food is second to none!

Everything was simply amazing, they were also so generous to allow us to come almost 2 hours early and use the bridal suite because the rain came while we were doing our outdoor photos. To explain to someone what you are looking to do and to have those same people execute it perfectly is unheard of. Tara and her team were FUN-nominal. Thank you so very much.

I wouldn't have wished for a better group of people to be able to work with when planning my special day. From the moment we met Mark we knew The Reception Center was the place for us. Mark met with us in multiple occasions and was always there when we had a question. The food was amazing and people are still talking about it today. Mark even had sangria made for our wedding when we asked if that could be added to the bar. And it went during the cocktail hour! I will definitely be calling Mark when I need to have an event catered or need a reception space.

I can not begin to say how much we loved the reception center. The location was absolutely perfect and the food was out of this world. Mark and his staff could not have been any better even if they wanted to.
