We just got married 10.7.16 and we were blown away! Planning a wedding half way across the country scared me at first. However, we couldn't have done it without the amazing staff at the Reception Center! They made sure every detail was perfect! We had such an amazing and memorable time there. The food is out of this world, and we had people tell us that this was the first wedding they been to where the cake tasted just as good as it looked! Everything was perfect! We cannot thank them enough for everything that was done. This truly is a great venue, with incredible staff, and amazing prices to boot! Thank you again.

My fiance and I went to view several venues and we decided to choose "The Reception Center at Saint Clement" its a hidden jewel, we love the fact that is intimate setting. Only one event will be taken place that day which will be our wedding. Marybeth our coordinator was sweet and helpful, pricing was reasonable, ranges right with our budget. I'm happy with our choice.

I heard about The Reception Center on a Facebook thread. I checked out their website & then e-mailed to inquire about packages & cost information. I received a reply quickly, and Marybeth attached the wedding packages and cost information. Most of the other venues that I contacted ignored questions regarding packages and costs until we booked a tour with them.
The Reception Center was within our budget, so we did the Tasting and Tour a few days later. I went with my wedding-planner-pro sister. From the moment we walked in, we were blown away by the décor & ambiance of the venue. Marybeth asked if there were any food allergies beforehand. I have celiac, so they put all of the gluten free food on a different plate to avoid cross-contamination. The food was delicious. My sister and I were sold on the venue.
It didn’t take much to convince my husband and we booked the venue the following Saturday. Marybeth was super helpful during the entire planning process, every question I had was answered (even if I asked the same question 3 different times). She somehow managed to alleviate a lot of the stress that goes along with planning a wedding. They even made me my own little gluten free cake! Our wedding went flawlessly. Marybeth & Peg were so helpful and even though I was a nervous wreck, Peg somehow managed to calm me down. Our maître d was amazing… she knew what we needed before we knew it. Everyone was raving about the food and the shakes & slider station was the biggest hit!
The Reception Center is a wonderful family run venue with great service and delicious food! Having my own wedding there in November of 2010 I can tell you from personal experience the venue and service does not compare! Everything was perfect and they make it stress free during the planning!
Great facility, great staff and great food. I highly recommend The Reception Center at Saint Clement to all my clients & friends.
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.
