A Perfect Day!

We got married here last Saturday and the venue was beautiful! All of our guests loved it and it was the perfect size for the wedding we had. While planning this wedding from Texas, Monica was super helpful answering all of our questions. The online portal was very easy to use and helped keep track of all the documents and communication. All of the staff day of were wonderful and helped make our day feel special!

Fantastic!

Not only is the venue gorgeous but Monica and the rest of the staff are top notch! Their online portal was user friendly, kept everything organized in one convenient place, and allowed for online payments. Monica was responsive, accommodating, personable, and her established relationships with our vendors helped in coordinating our big day. The entire staff was polite and efficient; they did a great job clearing glasses from the tables after dinner or as they were empty and none of our guest ever had to wait for a drink. The arbor we purchased for the ceremony was too light to withstand the wind but Monica offered the arbor from the venue that was better suited for the conditions. When we had inclement weather and had to move our cocktail hour inside from the rooftop, the staff made it a smooth and easy transition. Also, you can't beat the stunning view of the Mississippi. We are extremely happy we chose the Celebration Center for our wedding and would recommend it to anyone looking for a space to host their event!
