Campus Club was the perfect venue for our wedding reception in August. We loved having the option to be outside on the terrace (amazing spot for pictures) or inside admiring the skyline views. The food is top notch. But best of all, Jenn the coordinator was amazing to work with. She was quick to answer my many questions, offered suggestions when needed, and keep a running tally of everything we decided. Our reception was amazing- the staff were great. Cannot recommend it enough. Thanks Campus Club!
We had our wedding at the Campus Club in August, and it was PERFECT! We live in NYC and we had to plan the wedding from out of state, but Jenn, Jane and their team made it very easy to plan, they were there to help every step of the way, answering questions whenever we needed. And the wedding day was BEAUTIFUL. The ceremony was outside on the terrace with the beautiful view. And there was a rain plan if it rained, which was important to us. We were able to have the ceremony outside, but we loved that they were flexible and able to decide last minute if we were going to need to move the ceremony indoors. The reception in the West Wing was spectacular, and we had our first dance, speeches, and dinner as the sun was setting - it was an epic, cinematic sky! We've gotten so many compliments on the space and the food. The food was something that was very important to us, and it was local and unique and delicious! The Staff was so friendly and helpful. We always had what we needed. I couldn't have asked for a more wonderful experience. And all at a reasonable cost. We HIGHLY recommend this venue!
