This was the perfect place to have a wedding for us.
The planning was made so easy by the event coordinator, Lisa, who will walk you through every step of the way if you need it, like I did. I’m a terrible planner, but having someone to say “we’ve had brides do this or this” or “we can try this or this” made the event so much less stressful. She was extremely knowledgeable, both about event planning and the building.
As for the building itself, it is just gorgeous and made for some really great wedding photos. The Bridal Suite was spacious, and myself, my mom, and my three bridespeople, the photographer and a couple of guests never felt crowded. We wanted to keep it traditional and not see each other before the ceremony, and the space made it extremely easy to do that.
I had my ceremony in the Gallery and the reception in Community Hall. The Gallery is a smaller space, but it was plenty big enough for all our guests, and it’s a space that is very simple and chic. It doesn’t take a lot to make it look elegant, so it was the perfect place for the ceremony.
The Community Hall was the perfect place for the reception. It’s so large, but again doesn’t need more than simple decorations to make it look great, but looks beautiful with more complex decorations as well! There was plenty of room for a dance floor, tables, bar, dessert section, food tables, and anything else we could have wanted. My guests never felt crowded, and it was an amazingly fun event.
We prepared our own food and used the kitchen, and it could not have been a better place for that! We could spread out, have multiple stations, and never feel crowded.
As for the setup and prep, the BCC staff did almost everything! Chairs, tablecloths, tables, all set out in exactly the way we wanted them. The only thing we had to do was put the centerpieces on the tables! As for clean up, it was super simple, they do that for you as well! If you use the kitchen, you have to wash your dishes, but other than that, you take your stuff out, and they will do the rest. It makes big events, especially weddings, so much less stress free.
As for our photos, they were beautiful with so many places to take them! The fountain out front, the balcony, the stage, everywhere they all looked amazing because it has such an incredible backdrop.
I cannot stress enough how much I adored my wedding experience here.Sent on 04/05/2019

Our Dreams Came True
My husband and I got married here on July 16, 2017! Everyone there was so much more than helpful! I never once got any bad vibes or worries about anything that was supplied and taken care of by this venue.
The coordinator made it SO EASY to plan all of it and figure out the perfect ceremony and reception! I got everything I ever wanted, and more. Thanks to this place and the staff, my wedding was a dream and I couldn’t have asked for better.
I highly suggest working with this great crew. They really take care of their clients and do all they can to make things perfect for you.
Thank you guys so much for helping my husband and my dreams come true!Sent on 04/10/2019
