    An Elegant Wedding Shower

    The TCH sales planner made the planning fun and simple right down to every detail. No surprises. The elegant setting, gourmet food, prompt and attentive service made for a beautiful wedding shower (40 guests) for my daughter. My daughter was so pleased with everything. I would host another event at TCH for sure!

    Wonderful Venue!

    The Community House made our wedding day perfect! Sarah, the event planner was with us every step of the way! She truly went above and beyond throughout our entire time of working with her! The venue was very accommodation of our wedding schedule/timeline and made sure we always had what we needed! The food was excellent and service was beyond words! All of the staff members checked in with us multiple times throughout dinner and made sure we had everything we needed throughout the whole evening. We received multiple compliments on the food and service. We highly recommend working with Sarah at The Community House!
