    Great Location with Culture

    This venue was excellent. The tables and chairs were all included which was great. They offered extra rooms for changing/storage. The best part about it was that the venue included a 2 hour museum tour for all of the guests to browse on their own pace. It was a nice addition for the guests to enjoy while pictures were being taken.

    We LOVED having our ceremony and reception at the CCHS!! Cyndi was our coordinator, and she was so helpful with any questions we had. The venue is pretty and unique, and right in town- perfect for pictures. And the Hotel Warner is right across the street, so it's nice and convenient. We used the patio out front for cocktail hour, and it was beautiful. It's a pretty blank space so it works with any color scheme or theme you'd like to use, and a nice stage that you can use for your wedding band/DJ. I highly recommend the CCHS! I am so happy we had our wedding there.
