The Center Club is the best place to get married! Here are my reasons it was the perfect venue for us:Sent on 01/18/2013
1. All inclusive packages for your budget
I was planning my wedding within 6 months so I needed a venue that would make it easier for me. When I found out the Center Club PREFERRED credit cards (they don’t charge you extra for using one either), INCLUDED valet, cake (from awesome bakeries), chiavari chairs, hors d’oeuvres, and ALCOHOL all for a very fair rate, I was so relieved! It almost sounded too good to be true! But it got better! The food was SO good and guests commented that it was great as well!
2. Plan B for weather
Another important factor for me since I got married in January was the weather. If it rained, would I have an option to have the wedding indoors? I was at ease knowing there were both options. The day of my wedding there was a 60% chance of rain. It didn’t end up raining, but it was freezing and windy outside so we had the wedding indoors. I thought the room would be too small for our 125 guests, but it was still beautiful and guests were relieved it wasn’t in the freezing cold.
3. Amazing ambiance
The best thing about the venue is its new modern facelift. Our guests were in awe when they walked in and couldn’t imagine how we could afford such a nice venue. There are not that many photos of the new venue online, so you MUST visit!
4. Can do attitude
Again I cannot express how grateful we were for Chris. He had become such a partner and an integral part to our whole planning process!He met with us whenever we needed and replied promptly to all of our emails. Even up until the night before the wedding he called me on my cell to discuss final details and was extremely patient with my last minute requests. He had such a “can do” attitude and the entire time made us feel like he was trying to make our day the best day ever.... and it truly WAS!

Dream wedding come true!
My husband and I are so grateful to have had Chris as our reception coordinator. He was so helpful throughout the entire process and never once made it stressful. We are so lucky to have had him plan out our wedding at center club! This venue was so elegant and classy which made it so perfect for our wedding. Thank you for treating our guests like royalty. We are forever grateful to you.Sent on 04/24/2019

We had our wedding reception at Center Club and thanks to Chris Hartley and his fabulous team we had the best experience ever! The all inclusive pricing makes everything so easy, Chris Hartley was always responsive to questions we had throughout the planning process, the food was amazing (especially the late night "Authentic Taco Station" snack option- you would not believe how many of our guests told us they were the best tacos they had ever had), and the service was unbelievable. I would highly recommend Center Club to anyone looking to host a large event. You will not be disappointed!!!Sent on 02/06/2018

The Center Club is truly a one-of-a-kind venue. Every detail, from the artwork to the furniture is gorgeous. And the wedding/special event professionals there are just that ... professionals. I can also say their chef is amazing and very creative -- whether it's passed appetizers or a plated dinner. Some people may think you have to be a member to have a wedding or other event there, and that's not the case. Five stars all around in my book!
Center Club is a wonderful venue! This hidden gem boasts beautiful chandeliers, a water feature, and great backdrops for wedding photography. The service is excellent from the event managers to the servers. They will take good care of you and ensure your wedding is everything you dreamed!
The Center Club is a beautiful venue with a great staff. They are professional and courteous and a great bunch of people to work with. I would highly recommend them!
