    Easy, Reasonable, and Beautiful

    We chose the UNF University Center for our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. We had the ceremony on the patio overlooking the pond and it was absolutely perfect! The patio is covered so there was no concern if the weather was bad. Thankfully we had perfect weather. The cocktail hour was in the lobby of the building and then the reception in the Board of Trustees ballroom. We had around 140 guests and it was the perfect size. The bar and the buffet were in adjoining rooms and it gave us more space for seating and the dance floor. We made custom drapery for the ceiling to hide the drop ceiling and between that and the uplighting from UNF and our DJ, it completely transformed the room. We chose a buffet dinner which was absolutely delicious! So many people commented on how unexpectedly great the food was. If you book with UNF, I highly recommend the beef burgundy. The best part of having our wedding and reception at UNF was working with Pam Bush. Pam was amazing! She is seriously the most patient and sweetest lady ever. Pam worked with us from the very beginning to tour the space, sign contracts (that we ended up changing multiple times), pick food, and coordinating with me times to setup and take down our decorations. Pam was there for the rehearsal and all day for the wedding making sure everything went smoothly and in order. On top of the wonderful, food, service, and venue, the University Center is reasonably priced and was able to allow us to have the large wedding we wanted and stay within budget. UNF’s University Center is a hidden gem for weddings!

    Very easy to work with. The venue includes table linens, tables, chairs, glassware, plates, silverware. Must cater through UNF besides the cake. The total includes food and bar. They had a great selection of food. And refunded us for expenses that weren’t consumed. I’ve gotten endless compliments.
