    Everything I never knew I wanted.

    My husband (ahhh I am saying my husband) and I got married at Celebrations on the River about 2 weeks ago, and our wedding was everything and more I could have hoped for. The venue was absolutely stunning and our guests are still talking about it. The bridal suite was the perfect place for us girls to get ready and relax before I said my I dos!

    But the day was made because of the amazing staff that were there to help from day one. Ann, Kayla and Rebekka were absolutely amazing. They made every little detail perfect and did everything possible to give us the day of our dreams. Even my mom (mother of the bride) couldn't have been happier about our venue choice and the team that we surrounded ourselves with.

    Having our wedding at Celebrations was honestly they best choice we made! A wonderful way and place to start our lives together!

    Wonderful Wedding Venue

    I highly recommend Celebrations on the River for anyone considering it for an event. Our daughter and son-in-law held their wedding reception there this past Saturday in the River Park space (banquet hall and 3 season room). The day of the event was wonderful. It went way beyond my expectations.
    Our guests raved about what a great place it was for the reception. It was beautifully decorated, clean and had lots of spaces for guests to enjoy during the evening including the 3 season room and the beautifully lit areas on the terrace and around the fire pit. (It was a little dark in the 3 season room, it might be nice to add some lamps or other lighting.) The women of the bridal party enjoyed the luxury of the bridal suite. It made the day just a little more special to have that space. We had lots of room for dancing which was good as the dance floor was full most of the night.
    On the day of the event, Rebekka, our event planner during the reception, was a rock star! She and the rest of the staff were friendly, attentive and very responsive. They exceeded my expectations in setting up and monitoring our s’more bar and apple nacho station to ensure it was well stocked all night. They were prompt at picking up at tables. Some guest might say too quick at cleaning up, as they wanted to go back to the banquet hall for seconds, but plates and silverware had already been picked up. Guests did enjoy the late night pizza which was very good. Speaking of food, the guests gushed about the melt in your mouth ham, the delicious garlic mashed potatoes and the tasty couscous. Yum!
    I appreciated that Celebrations had décor package options. It was great that we could have them do the majority of the decorating and we could focus on some areas that we wanted to personalize with our own decor. Also, having the security of a card slot and an option to lock up gifts overnight was really nice.
    Last, but not least I want to recognize Ann, Director of Events. She is the best! She is knowledgeable, fun and responsive. She helped us navigate through the process and had great suggestions. She was able to paint a picture of what the day might look like and she delivered on that plan. She answered all of my questions and there were many. She was quick to reply to emails and always got back to us when she said she would. She was also on site the day of the event to make sure things went smoothly. We couldn’t have asked for a better day.
