The Community HOuse

The word PERFECT unfortunately does not do justice to how absolutely incredible our wedding was at The Community House! From the beginning of the planning process, they were extremely professional with every question we had, and they even offered up multiple things to help that we didn't even think about.
The day of the wedding was so stress free it almost felt strange. Whenever someone needed something, it was delivered, whenever something came up, it was taken care of within a blink of an eye.
We had budgeted a lot of time to setup the ballroom with decor the way we wanted, after doing one table they told us we will do the rest go focus on your day! Absolutely incredible, and im certain the layout was better than anything we could have done! I wish i could add pictures!
The food was also on time and incredible! Everyone was served like a five-star restaurant, and it tasted like it too!

I cannot say enough about Catherine and the way she treated myself and my wife through the whole process. Getting us everything we needed, making calls on our behalf, calming our nerves... Above and beyond does not even begin to describe it!
Also wanted to shoutout Nick, Kent, Leon, as individuals that blew us away with their quality of service, however everyone was also wonderful!

We are so happy we picked The Community House for our big day, and we would absolutely recommend them to anyone interested in looking for a venue! 10/10, 5 stars!

The BEST Experience! Love The Community House!!

The Community House was the only wedding venue my husband and I toured and we instantly fell in love. The venue is stunning, the food was amazing, and the staff is incredible! We had to postpone our reception 3 times and the staff was SO accommodating and made the postponing process seamless. Lauren Timmerman was great to work with, so responsive, and made our day stress free. All of our guests are still raving about the venue, staff, and the food. Highly recommend The Community House — you won’t regret it!

Beautiful, delicious, responsive

Our experience with The Community House was great! We were able to do a FaceTime tour and booked before we’d visited in person. We did experience a couple of changes in point-people, but all were lovely and responsive, and we were just thrilled with the coordinator, Lauren. She and the team handled minor hiccups smoothly. The food was fantastic and beautifully presented, and the chef and team were very accommodating to dietary needs and changes in the menu to add food and bar options when we risked not meeting the minimums due to COVID affecting our guest count. They even packed up a couple of slices of our cutting cake to bring home with us! Everyone was great on the day of, the service was fantastic, and the venue was a very pleasant place to get ready for, and celebrate, our wedding. We highly recommend The Community House.
