We just got married 10.7.16 and we were blown away! Planning a wedding half way across the country scared me at first. However, we couldn't have done it without the amazing staff at the Reception Center! They made sure every detail was perfect! We had such an amazing and memorable time there. The food is out of this world, and we had people tell us that this was the first wedding they been to where the cake tasted just as good as it looked! Everything was perfect! We cannot thank them enough for everything that was done. This truly is a great venue, with incredible staff, and amazing prices to boot! Thank you again.

Me and my husband just got married this past Saturday and we could not be happier!!!! The Reception Center is top notch in every category!!! Our guests are still talking about how incredible the food was (which was one of the reasons we picked The Reception Center; we have never had better food in our lives!!!)!!! Marybeth is a dream to work with!! She was right there every step of the way! Cindy, our Maitre D, was phenomenal!!!! Cindy was our right hand man the whole night, whether it be getting us drinks or showing us how to cut the wedding cake, she was there for us!!! While planning our wedding our family and friends kept telling us "don't stress too much, something will go wrong the day of your wedding." We are still laughing because we honestly had the most PERFECT wedding anyone could ask for....NOTHING WENT WRONG!!! Thank you Marybeth, Cindy, and the entire staff at The Reception Center for giving us the perfect day!!!

My husband and I looked at many venues and were discouraged at the pricing and event space; we were beginning to feel like we wouldn't find a place. I found out about the Reception Center through a friend and decided to go there. I was amazed at how much was included at an incredible price! I worked with Tara and JoAnne; whenever I had a question they responded right away and were extremely flexible. The wedding day was perfect and I couldn't ask for more. There was so much food at the cocktail hour I barely had room for dinner! I would absolutely recommend the Reception Center.

The Reception Center at St. Clements was an absolutely amazing venue for my wedding. My wife and I were blown away by their presentation, professionalism, options, and affordability. The staff were fantastic and super helpful throughout the entire planning and sales process. They over-delivered on everything we could have asked for, and the all-inclusive option is by far the best way to go! The preferred vendors they work with are tremendous, and the food is AMAZING!

I would absolutely recommend you visit this venue and meet with the staff. You won't even want to visit anywhere else.

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

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!
