    Truly Special

    MaryBeth and Brian are incredible. Every little detail of our day was taken care of. They go above and beyond. Our guests loved the food, and people kept telling me how much they enjoyed cocktail hour! They took such care with our decorations and made it look better than we could have imagined. They are also just wonderful people, and they are so helpful and communicative. The value you get here is far and away better than anywhere else. I would recommend this venue to everyone. Can we give six stars?

    Adam Saber Event Entertainment has been working at the Reception Center for many years. Within last few years, we had the honor of being made an preferred vendor with The Reception Center and I can not begin to say what an amazing venue they are! Their food is with out a doubt, the best food, whether you choose a sit down or buffet, its prepared for perfection. The room is large in size and they are investing in the newest uplighting technology to provide a decor that meets your desires. With two large bars, there is never a line and the bartenders are professional all the way... I highly recommend The Reception Center and know anyone who chooses them, will not be disappointed.
