    COVID-friendly venue

    Absolutely recommend if someone is considering a COVID-friendly intimate wedding. We decided to have a small wedding of 40 people and they were able to accommodate both ceremony and reception at their patio space. Depending on the seating arrangement, they host up to 50 for reception outside. Jonathan the event coordinator had so much experience and was very professional and knowledgeable in coordinating weddings. The quality of the service and food overall was excellent.

    Above & Beyond

    My husband and I got married in May 2019 at the University Club so my review is woefully overdue, but I cannot speak highly enough of the entire team at the UCP and of our experience. Jonathan and Kelly made everything feel seamless and were so supportive throughout the entire planning process. They made us feel like they were part of our team, and let me just tell you - if you have parents with strong opinions like we do, they are a team you can't pass up having on your side. There plenty of things to be stressed about out on our day of, but not a single one of them related to our reception. The food, layout, setup, service, and attention to detail and to us and our guests was above and beyond what we could have imagined. THANK YOU UCP!!!
