Wedding venue

Absolutely beautiful and amazing venue. The staff, especially the coordinator was very patient and professional. No matter how many times I called and asked questions or made changes, she was patient and understanding. The wedding was beautiful, on time and worth it, thanks to the coordinator!

Amazing Experience

Wow, where do I begin?! I was initially referred to a few other venues but after speaking with them, not only were they out of my budget but they did not offer any other services except for renting the building. I found the Ruthe Jackson Center on google. I set an appointment to visit their venue. It was absolutely elegant and classy. Exactly what I wanted. I was assisted by Rebecca. Rebecca was very patient, a great listener and she was able to assist us in making our dream wedding come true. The Ruthe Jackson Center was a one stop shop for me. I refused to be a stressed out bride and they helped me accomplish that. Not only did they offer a beautiful venue, but I was able to get my catering with them (my now husband and I went in for a dinner tasting and it was amazing). We had our guests served by the staff, I am so glad that we chose this option. The venue also has a list of vendors that they work with frequently. This was a life saver! I chose our photographer (Avant Multimedia) and our entertainment (The Leonardo Group) from the list, oh yea and we chose the a bakery from their list to create our wedding and groom cake (CakeAholics). It really only took me about a month to complete all of the details. We also had the venue do our decorations. The ballroom is perfect the way it is and we didn't have to do much to it. Sometimes simple is better. I kept having people ask me if I was excited, well sometimes its hard to get excited when you are still busy getting all of the details together but all of that changed the day of my wedding. I walked into the venue and my mouth literally dropped! To see all of the small details come together and now I am witnessing the big picture, I literally could not contain myself. I was overjoyed! Everyone that we used did an amazing job. Rebecca was so attentive (I also used them as my coordinator) and responsive to our needs. The entire wedding from the day we signed our contract to the moment the reception was over was top notch. Everyone was professional, we could tell that they love what they do, and my guest are still raving about our wedding. What is really is exciting is that my now husband was more excited than I was. He knew some of the details but not all of them, so to see his face light up when he saw the ballroom was priceless. My husband had a great time dancing, laughing and just enjoying the moment. We definitely enjoyed our wedding day and we did not have to break the bank! Thank you Rebecca and Ruthe Jackson Center for making our day memorable.

Ruthe Jackson Center is the perfect venue!

The Ruthe Jackson Center was the perfect venue for our special day. From the initial tour of the facility and throughout the entire planning process our experience was perfect.
The amenities provided and the level of customer service exceeded our expectations.
The meals provided were tasty and nice portions. We were pleased with the final cost and would recommend this venue for any special event.
