  • If you are a bride looking for the perfect wedding day-then the Center Club is your venue. However, you must have Chlris Hartley as your Event Coordinator though. My wedding was the party of the century all because of Chris Hartley. I was not a bridezilla but I was a very picky bride who wanted to control everything. But during my first meeting with Chris, I immediately became comfortable and he gained my trust . I really loved his since of humor, professionalism, and great personality. Even though I was not his only client, he made me feel extremely important. He responded to my emails and voicemails in a timely manner. He was very patient with me because I did ask a lot of questions. I didnt know everything about wedding planning, but Chris sure does. He was extremely creative in helping me with the decor by suggesting great vendors ( Tomgirl Bakery along with others) to help my day to be stress free. Chris also made great suggestions that worked within my budget. He made hi... Read more

  • I just had my wedding and reception at the Center Club with the help of event director Chris and his wonderfully accommodating staff. Everything from the organization of the event to the big day itself went wonderfully. Chris and his staff were so accommodating and offered such a great all inclusive package deal that just couldn't be beat. The appetizers and dinner were outstanding and we got so many compliments from our guests on how much they enjoyed the food and the top notch service. (Many compliments were for the bacon wrapped scallop appetizers! Yummy!) They only do one event per day so YOUR wedding is the focus of the staff which is great. Thanks to the Center Club for providing an elegant setting, wonderful staff, excellent food and memories to last a lifetime for this new bride and groom. It was a stress free experience! Thank you!

  • Our wedding reception was at The Center Club and it was a wonderful and memorable experience. The meal choices were well rounded so we had something for every's taste. The Garden Room allowed for guests to mingle outside and inside and lucky for us the day was beautiful and our guests were very impressed. The Center Club gave us a table placement that worked so well for the event. I had a wish for the napkin folding and what we wanted on each table and Chris Hartley handled it to perfection! Chris and his staff worked well with our florist and with the company that handled our wedding cake. Chris created a special entree to fit our budget. Chris and his staff "went that extra mile" in all respects! He provided a room for our wedding gifts, he provided a table so our guests could sign a photo. Chris offered us the idea to place a video screen in the reception area for viewing of photos we provided on a thumb drive. Chris and his staff provided a piano for the musician we hired for our r...

  • We cannot believe how we were so fortunate to have celebrated our wedding reception at the Center Club! My first meeting with Chris was really pleasant and he was incredibly helpful and very accommodating. He was very thoughtful and always offered to help us in any way that will make our wedding day super special. We had our tasting and it was nice that they were able to customized the menu to our needs. Our food was perfect!!!! Both of us and all our guests were very impressed with the professional service and how the meals all came out warm, savory, and perfectly cooked. The place was so cozy and elegant. Our wedding package even included complimentary valet...our guests loved the convenience. What an amazing evening! Everything went smoothly and beautifully. Thank you Chris and staff for making our wedding day so memorable!

  • Center Club was the perfect venue for our wedding reception. My fiance was very particular about the venue and we looked at places from L.A. to San Diego. On a whim, we decided to look into Center Club after finding them in "Here Comes the Guide". Our mothers decided to see the venue with us and after taking one look decided unanimously it was the perfect place for our reception. The online photos do not do it justice; the fountains, patio and ballroom are gorgeous. Christine Petersen, the event director, was very kind and flexible to work with. Last minute additions or changes were never a problem for her. I read the previous review regarding a negative experience because they were not members of the club; however, this was not my experience at all, everyone at Center Club was very polite and respectful to us though we were not members.

  • As a wedding party member/guest this was the worst reception site for any large group. The wedding was approximately 160, and with the diagonal block setup of the room, about half the guests couldn't see a thing during the toasts, first dance, etc. Even less for the cake cutting. It may be find for groups of about 50 to 75, but it was horrible for our group. The food was not great, rubbery chicken, cold soup, overcooked vegetables, and the wine service was pretty bad. We didn't get the red wine option at our table (though we asked several times) until the meal was over (the other tables had it, and we didn't). Mind you, we were the table next to/behind the sweethearts table/wedding party table. Couldn't see a thing from our seats. It was pretty disappointing as a guest. The cocktail hour was in the walkway. Oh, and the dance floor was in the middle of the diagonal setup, so if you were on the other side of the room from the bar... forget getting to it. It was so crowded that it was imp... Read more

  • The Center Club is an absolutely beautiful venue. It is so elegant and impressive - I fell in love with it the first time I set foot there. The food is also incredible - the best food you could ask for at a wedding. The service left a little bit to be desired...maybe it was just because my family is not an official "member" (even though they opened up the venue to non-members), but my main contact was a bit of a disappointment. When I first met with him, he made a lot of promises, but as time went on, he didn't really come through on them. Through the planning process, he never initiated contact with me (unless it was time for a payment), so unless I reached out to him, I would go for weeks without hearing anything. Several times, he made me feel like a nuisance with questions I'd ask him - now, I wasn't at all a "bridezilla", I was actually SUPER laid-back about everything...but he acted annoyed with me many times. For the most part, everything was fine - the day went really smooth... Read more
