Amazing Venue- Highly Recommend
We just had our wedding at the new center court venue this past Saturday, wedding and reception. Everything about it was absolutely beautiful!! It was everything we had hoped for. The entire celebrations staff was wonderful to work with. Ann was always available to answer questions and assist during the planning period . Day of, there were several staff consistently peaking in and asking if we needed anything and what they could do to help. Side note, the bridal suite was AMAZING!! It was beyond amazing to have a large indoor and outdoor space, with a full kitchen, bar, kitchen table AND 3 salon stations. We arrived in the morning and everyone and everything came to us. When we needed a plan B for our ceremony music the celebrations staff swooped in to help before I could even think to panic. The food was amazing. Having a large family with lots of kids we had family raving about all the things for the kids to do. Most of our family stayed the entire time, adults and kids. We received so many compliments from our family about the venue from the food, the beautiful venue, the outside space, and the list goes on. It was a perfect day. Thanks for everything, Celebrations!! We would HIGHLY recommend!!!Sent on 09/12/2019
