We wanted somewhere with an outdoor setting for our rustic themed wedding, but also somewhere with a plan B in the event of rain & storms. The Anderson Center was the perfect choice for our ceremony and reception! The grounds were beautiful and I liked the convenience of having everything at the same place.

Amy was so helpful with any questions I had! The space is unique and close to home which made it a perfect location. The make-up room is fabulous and makes you feel like a total VIP on your big day :)

I worked with Amy Meyer at the Anderson Center in Anderson Township! What a beautiful place! You can get great pictures inside and out without having to go anywhere. The set up is great! Amy is so easy to work with and very flexible. She is quick to return emails and phone calls. The staff was very accommodating and granted all of our requests! I got so many compliments on choosing such a great venue for a wedding! The best part is your guests can move around and are not stuck in the same room all night! We had our ceremony on the spiral staircase and then moved up to the dining room for dinner, had cocktail our on upper atrium and then moved everyone downstairs for dancing! So cool!!!!! I would recommend Amy and the Anderson Center for any party or wedding!

The Anderson Heritage Center provided us with the intimate setting that we wanted for our son and daughter in law's dinner party celebrating their recent marriage in Seoul, South Korea. The event included included 37 guests.
With a little imagination we were able to give the dining room a lovely Camelot style decor and still feel as if we were at home. The staff were very accommodating with us, meeting several times at the venue to allow us to make measurements for decorations and secure final details.
The center set up a projector and screen for the bride and groom to show a video presentation.
The staff member on duty was very helpful and professional throughout the event.
We supplied our own food, served buffet style and kept warm with those little burner things you place under a tin tray. Unfortunately, there is not an oven in the kitchen.
There was plenty of room in the fridge for keeping items cold but no freezer. Ice was kept in a cooler.
The upstairs bedrooms served nicely as changing rooms for the bride and groom. They were able to change into traditional wedding clothes they had brought from Korea in comfort.
There is plenty of parking and easy access into the house. The bathrooms were very clean and easily accessible.
Even though it was winter, we were lucky with the weather and were able to get some lovely photographs of the bride and groom outside in the white gazebo.
The Heritage Center was just what we wanted!

Everything was perfect except for the hour just prior to the reception starting. My family was gathered with a photographer I was paying by the hour for photos. Out of respect for the other ceremony taking place on the grounds, we elected to have our photos in the back by the bridge-a beautiful setting. When we arrived, there were at least 50 kids and accompanying parents taking pictures for a High School Homecoming. Our planner and photographer politely explained we had rented the facility and they would have to move. This was met with cussing and rude remarks by the parents. The site manger for the Anderson Center also asked them to move-and he was also cursed at. Finally, they moved on, over towards the ceremony-but this sucked up 30 precious minutes. We had no choice but to speed through our pictures to finish before the guests began arriving. The other issue this caused was this group of parents took all the parking. It became an issue for my arriving guests. Very disappointing this type of scenario was not planned for. I realize is is not the venue's fault if these parents and kids descend-but a word of caution if you plan to use the facility-make sure there is a plan in place to quickly evacuate or not allow this to happen to you! Outside of that the facility was a perfect setting for our party-all of our guest enjoyed the party!

I absolutely loved this venue! It encompassed everything we were looking for! Everyone with the Anderson event center was extremely helpful and I felt they were truly planning (and excited) with me.
I only experienced one mishap. I found out a week before my wedding that they were renovating the front of the Heritage Center - not from the event center, but from my wedding coordinator (who is not attached to Anderson). It was still in progress the day of the wedding and it did cause some problems with pictures we were wanting to take, however, they did clean up a lot of the tape and mess before the actual wedding.
It rained the day of, but, just a few weeks before Amy offered me a larger sized tent (due to a larger party occurring a few weeks later) and we were able to hold the entire ceremony under the tent! It turned out beautiful. :)
It is a great venue. I would highly recommend it!
