    Beautiful venue with organized professionals!

    We were impressed with CJ's Off the Square the moment we stepped onto the property. The level of professionalism and organization sold us instantly. It was the very first venue we toured and we kept going back to it. The day of, Brette made sure that our wedding day timeline was on schedule and that everybody was where they needed to be. She had a great personality and was very welcoming to everybody who was involved with the wedding. We loved our experience at CJ's and can't recommend it enough.

    Beautiful wedding stress free

    Our May wedding at CJs was like a fairytale. The venue is so beautiful and makes the event feel intimate and magical. The staff at CJs makes the experience stress free because they do all of the work! Our planner was Sidney and she was so easy to work with and was always willing to answer any questions or concerns we had. Throughout the planning process people would always ask me if I was stressed or so busy with planning and my answer was no! The food was actually amazing, which I know is shocking for a wedding.
