TESTIMONIALS • REVIEWS
The planning process was very smooth and made a very stressful time much simpler. This was my first time ever planning an event and I would and do highly recommend McHales, The Center, and Lindsay to anyone as this was such a pleasant experience!
We received many compliments on how well organized and friendly the entire staff was. Made the overall experience perfect!
- Brooke & Zack –
We absolutely loved working with Lindsay! She was thorough in her explanations, kind, enthusiastic, and always prompt in response to questions.
Our banquet manager, Erin, went above and beyond for us. We are so happy we were able to work with her through our wedding weekend. She made our lives so much easier and was great to interact with.
- Courtney & Mitchell –
We chose The Center for its convenient downtown location and ability to hold our large wedding group, but we were blown away by the level of service and offerings that they provide. We loved the fact that they had so many great decor items that we were able to use without added cost and they were all really nice options that we would have selected ourselves. Everything looked beautiful and our guests loved the location. Paula, Katie, and their team could not have been better to work with from every detail leading up to the event and during the event. We planned our wedding without a hired planner, but with how involved and detailed The Center staff was, it all went off without a hitch. We highly recommend The Center for a fabulous downtown wedding!

“The Center was by far the easiest and best decision I made during the wedding planning process…truly a diamond in the rough, shining modern amongst the typical, tired and dated downtown reception venues. The Center was extremely flexible and sensitive to client’s needs. In hindsight I believe I was more relaxed during the planning process due to my unwavering confidence in their staff.”
- Alex & Tom –
“The Center is fantastic. The staff was amazing to work with!! I could not have been happier with the entire wedding and staff. We did our ceremony and reception there, which I highly recommend. 10 stars!!!!! ”
- Chelsea & Casey –
“If you’re looking for a venue to bring your dreams to life you’ve found the one! So wonderful and kind. They made our wedding day a breeze. The absolute best!”
- Kristen & Luke –
“There are not enough good things that I can say about The Center and the amazing staff! Katie is simply the best, and was always so incredibly helpful at any point! The second my now husband and I walked in and toured, we had our minds made up! The space is so beautiful and it is easy to dress it up to your specific vision! We will send anyone we know to The Center for not only their ceremony/reception needs but any major event!!!!”
- Lauren & Brad –
“The staff at The Center played a huge role in our event. They took the time to sit through several (sometimes lengthy) meetings with our planner, caterer and family to really understand what we wanted for our wedding day. They helped recommend affordable vendors, and even talked through our budget with me when I was frantically trying to make everything work. They were always available – returning phone calls within a day and coming in on Saturdays and Sundays to meet to accommodate our schedule. We couldn’t have been happier with how the wedding turned out, and would highly recommend The Center to other couples.”
