We had our wedding reception here this past weekend and we were so happy we did!!Sent on 09/16/2019
First of all, Laurie was always on the ball and really helped us to plan out everything. She is quick to respond to any questions or issues we had. They also did the majority of decorating for us. They offer so many services including a DJ and photo booth.
Our guests really enjoyed the food and the venue in general. We had so many compliments. The grounds and the patio are gorgeous!!! They have done so much work landscaping.
Finally, the DJ (Faith) was excellent. She took the majority of our requests and actually played them. This was really important to us and we were so happy about that. The other songs she chose were fun as well.
We are so grateful to Laurie and John. Thank you so much for making everything go so smoothly. We didn’t have to worry about anything once we were there, just having fun!! We would not hesitate to recommend this venue.

Thank you so much for everything John & Laurie .Sent on 08/28/2019
You can tell that they are professional and have experience. The venue is beautiful inside and out . My guest loved the amazing dinner . The photo booth was a hit and the picture quality is so clear . Your staff was so helpful and friendly . If I had to do it all over there is no doubt I would pick celebrations again hands down. What they provide really does help with some of the stress that comes with planning a wedding. Our day was perfect .

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.
