Jupiter Civic Center
The Jupiter Civic Center is one of the most perfect locations for a reception you could ask for. Located on a beautiful stretch of Jupiter beach front, this building has the picture mix of rustic charm and elegant tropical.
This was the PERFECT venue for our casual, but elegant, beach wedding! There is no other place like the Civic Center and the value is incredible!! We will never forget our special day.
OK, so we were originally thinking about having our ceremony at the Jupiter Lighthouse but were discouraged by their lack of bathrooms as well as the accessability for my older guests. Once we booked the Jupiter Civic Center, the Town of Jupiter allows you to utilize the beach. When I orginally booked tghe JCC about a year ago.. the beach in front of it was unbelievably gorgeous... I know this is no fault of the town of Jupiter, but the day of my rehearsal dinner I was shocked. The erosion that had occurred on the beach was unbelievable. We had lost almost 40 ft of beach of the course of several months. None-the-less we made it work. The beach was beautiful, but definitely busy with patrons. The beach however was very clean, and well taken care. I do suggest anyone getting married on the beach looking into the use of a sound system as your guests will be unable to hear you over the sound of the waves.
When I originally began my planning I had stumbled across the JCC but because of their requirement of being a business owner in the Town of Jupiter, I was quickly deterred. I booked my wedding at the Delray Beach Golf Club. When my husband and I were forced to re-evaluate our finances for the wedding, we found ourselves looking for a facility that we could rent out. We stumbled upon the JCC again and I began looking for someone who had a business that could sponsor me. I was very lucky to have a co-worker who was one. I actually ended up at that point havng to wait approx. 2 months to book the civic center because they did not open up the next calendar year for bookings until about the middle of the year. This was particularly stressful for me but I ensured that I was an hour early that day and waited outside the Town of Jupiter building in a line with several others who were also looking to book it. (Word to the wise.. the dates fill up VERY QUICKLY!) I do however think the town should consider renting to individuals in the town of jupiter as well. I realize that it is a liability, but perhaps charge them a higher price for the use? Just something to consider! With that said, we found the Civic Center the morning of the wedding in great shape. The chairs were stacked neatly (which we used for the ceremony) and the tables were all put away. There were plenty of extension cords, laders, and other tools for our use. The bathrooms were clean and fully stocked. We found all fo the appliances were operational and in good condition. All in all, I would say we had a fantastic experience with the JCC and it truly made our wedding what it was: Intimate, Romantic, and beautiful!
