Celebrations was an excellent choice for our wedding ceremony and reception. John and Laurie throughout the whole process were reliable, organized, and efficient making the whole experience go smoothly. Celebrations has a lot to offer with the option of in house photography and DJ (and more recently photo-booth) and they also have a bunch of options regarding the food and drink so you can choose what is right for you. We opted out of the DJ and photography, but it was nice to have the option. We did participate in the photo-booth option and we don't regret that decision (all of the guests loved it). But, from the beginning to the very end, working with Celebrations was a wonderful experience. They truly made our day everything we ever imagined and I don't think we could have chosen a more perfect place for us to get married. Landscaping was flawless, food and drink were wonderful, and the staff was great. We would definitely recommend Celebrations to any one!

Experienced and professional owners

Jason and I could not have had a better experience at Celebrations. We toured several reception venues for our July 2022 wedding, and were extremely impressed by John and Laurie鈥檚 professionalism and wealth of experience. They helped us envision how the space would look and feel during the event, clearly presented food options and extra services, and were very easy to communicate with through the whole process. They worked with us to create a schedule for the evening and their day-of coordination was invaluable. Many friends and family members told us that our wedding was one of the nicest they had been to and that the food in particular was excellent, and John and Laurie certainly played a role in helping everything go so well.

P.S. I was particularly thrilled with the clever sound system that allowed the dance floor to be at a louder, danceable volume while keeping the music low enough to talk over at the tables!

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.
