We had our daughter and son-in-law's wedding reception at Celebrations. We also used their DJ, who was great, and the photo booth which was so much fun, and very reasonably priced. We took pictures outside where it was absolutely beautiful !! Inside, our guests were enjoying appetizers and drinks, then later , we had a wonderful dinner. The food was absolutely delicious. We wanted a place that had good food, and they certainly did. John and Laurie were awesome to work with. They have so many things right there, that they make everything so much easier. The service, food, DJ, presentation, absolutely EVERYTHING was amazing. We had no complaints. We highly recommended Celebrations. If we did it over, we'd have the wedding right there as well.Sent on 01/17/2017

John and Laurie made the planning process much easier. Their venue was absolutely stunning and the food was excellent! Many of my guests have been contacting me and telling me how much they LOVED the food, especially the macaroni and cheese.
Would definitely recommend this venue to anyone interested in having any kind of event at this location. 😊

I've photographed multiple weddings at Celebrations and they always do a fantastic job of taking care of their couples!
I've had the pleasure of working with John & Laurie at Celebrations on many occasions. Each time they consistently show a real concern for every couple whose day they're entrusted with. From every detail in presentation, to food, to service, they excel in all areas. I've worked in nearly every wedding venue in Central New York... I'd feel confident recommending Celebrations to anyone.
