I am so thrilled to write a raving review of the Canoe Club Ballroom! We had our wedding there on 1/21/17 and everything was perfect! From the moment we walked into CCB, Robert and I knew this was the place for our special day! We were super concerned with space because we were having a 200 person wedding and we had been to weddings where space was cramped and crowded. The CCB was perfect because there literally was not a bad seat in the house. It has such an open atmosphere and the dance floor was plenty big enough for our large crowd! We also had a 10-piece band play at our wedding and the stage at the CCB was perfect for accommodating their equipment and instruments! Another important detail for us was the ability to create our own environment within our venue. One of the other really big reasons why we choose the CCB was because it has such a classic design. The hardwood floors are gorgeous and the white walls with beautiful molding gave use the ability to decorate the space without competing with stationary décor like we had seen at other venues. We utilized the elegant simplicity of the CCB design to bring in our own personal touches to really create a custom space for our reception. With that being said, Stacy and Jill allowed us to bring in a truck load (literally) of our own decorations into the venue and gave us the creative ability to take over the ballroom to create a truly custom space. Being able to be so creative with the space was so fun! Both Stacy and Jill were so wonderful to work with throughout the whole planning process. They are both super responsive and also great resources to bounce ideas off of. We also loved that there were never times where we felt nervous about hidden costs. Stacy had been very upfront with us from the beginning about how much a reception of our size would be and also helped us pick and choose things that would work well within our budget. Her ability to be so open and honest about pricing made us extremely comfortable from the initial meeting we had with her. The reception could not have been more perfect! All of our ideas had come to life! The decoration displays were perfectly executed, the staff were incredibly attentive and professional, and the food was amazing! Our guests raved about the service, the food, the bar and the venue space. We could not be more thrilled! I cannot express how much we really loved our experience with the CCB! They were so wonderful to work with and made planning so easy for us as far as the venue. Stacy and Jill made us feel so comfortable from the moment we first visited the CCB to our last dance of our special day. Everyone there is amazing!!!
Honestly, if you want the wedding of your dreams...book it at the Canoe Club! It is really that simple! Stacy and Jillian are the best in the business not to mention the CCB is absolutely beautiful inside and out! I could go on and on but all I can say is you will not be disappointed! They seriously treat you like family, and make sure everything runs smoothly from the day you book, right up to the very end and beyond! I got married there on January 7, 2017 during what appears to be the first and last blizzard of 2017 and they could not have been better making sure everything ran perfectly, like it wasn't snowing at all! The CCB and Staff is perfection at its finest! My sincerest thanks to Stacy, Jillian, and all the other staff who worked our wedding as they made sure they were there regardless of the weather! The atmosphere was incredible although the blizzard added lots of stress on me, had it not been for Stacy and Jillian I am not sure I would have kept it together! People were cancelling due to the storm the day of the wedding, and Stacy or Jillian would check in and tell me not to worry it was going to be wonderful and beautiful no matter what! In the end, of course they were right! Thank you for making it seem like it wasn't even snowing! It was seamless from start to finish! They say rain brings luck on your wedding day...I am not sure what 19" of snow brings with blizzard conditions...except perhaps a perfect story to tell in the end?! Thanks to family, friends, and the CCB and staff! Love to you all! I could go on and on, but trust me, at first look you will fall in love all over again!
If you want personal service the day of your wedding, pick the Canoe Club. Stacy, Jillian and the rest of the girls go out of their way to ensure that the bride and the groom have everything they need for their amazing day. From the attention to detail and how they take all of your information, guest lists, etc and make sure everything is set up and laid out appropriately, to ensuring the room looks exactly how you envisioned. They bend over backwards to take care of any needs you may have and do everything they can to give you the wedding of your dreams. We were supposed to have an outdoor ceremony and we had ceremony cards. They laid those cards out and an hour before our ceremony, it down-poured. They quickly scooped up the cards and set up for an in-door ceremony. I had two dress issues, one, the top hook and button ripped and the girls met me in the bathroom after safety pins were no working and sewed me into my dress. Then when a glass of red wine was spilled on my blush pink wedding dress, they again, met me in the bridal bathroom and helped me to blot it out. No one that did not witness it even knew the wine had been spilled afterwards. They flipped the room from ceremony to reception in something like 2 1/2 minutes and those are just some of the examples I can speak of to sign their praises. I could not have picked a better venue and group of people to work with through the whole process. I would highly recommend the Canoe Club. Plus, having their preferred vendor list really made the search for a DJ, florist, limo service, etc. so much easier and I found incredible individuals and vendors to work with.
I cannot say enough about Stacy and Jill for everything they did to make my daughter's wedding day a dream come true. From the very first meeting at their Open House to a few days before the wedding when we dropped off all the essentials they went above and BEYOND!! They were very calming and reassuring and knew exactly what to say and do. Always prompt responses to calls, texts or emails. The Canoe Club Ballroom is the place to have your wedding reception. I give it a MILLION stars!!!Thank you again for everything!! It was wonderful!!! Love you ladies!!!
I can't even truly describe how amazing our experience was with CCB for our September 1st wedding. Stacey and Jill are superheroes! From the very first time we met both these ladies their passion for this industry and to be there not only in a business sense but personal level was obvious. We could send an email with either 1 or 100 questions and we would get a reply to every single one. When our wedding day came I was relaxed, which doesn't happen, knowing that everything at the venue was being taken care of. Also, our last meeting before the big day we went through the whole set up and they wanted to know how everything should look and make sure we had all questions answered. Once arriving at the venue from the first look we were so happy to see not only Stacey and Jill but all of the CCB staff. Anything needed prior to the ceremony was taken care of and they did an amazing job making sure no guests saw us prior to the ceremony which was a request. The whole day flew by, but was absolutely what we pictured/wanted thanks to the CCB. Our guests are still talking about how amazing/gorgeous the venue was and how much fun they had. I will strongly and highly recommend the CCB to anyone that will be looking for a wedding venue.
There truly are no words to express fully how amazing the Canoe Club Ballroom and staff are. We could not have dreamt of a more perfect day. From the beginning planning stages up to the very last dance Jillian and Stacy were there! All of our guests have told us how beautiful the venue was and how impressed they were by how hands on staff was!
I'm not even sure where to begin to explain how happy I am to have chosen the Canoe Club Ballroom for my marriage. I knew from the moment I walked in that it was the perfect setting for me! Stacy, Jillian, Erica, Andrea, and everyone else involved during this process were so helpful, knowledgable, professional, and kind. Being a bride who was pretty clueless from the start as to how much planning and work is involved, I am forever grateful to the Canoe Club for making everything a whole lot easier as they have built great relationships with multiple vendors and are unbelievably organized. From the outdoor grounds utilized for our ceremony and the indoor reception area to the amazing food and photo booth, everything was perfect! If you are looking for the best venue to host the wedding of your dreams with a staff who truly knows what they're doing, the Canoe Club Ballroom is definitely for you! Thank you all so much :)
The Canoe Club Ballroom made our wedding day absolutely perfect! They are so organized, well prepared and professional. From the first day that we toured and met with one of the bridal assistants we knew that this was the place for us! At each meeting they made us feel relaxed and kept us organized. They are easy going but made sure to help us feel so prepared when the day came. Every family member and friend was impressed with not only the organization of our wedding day, but were blown away by the beautiful upkeep of the ceremony space and Ballroom. I cannot say enough about the Canoe Club, they truly made our wedding day everything that we imagined and more. We are so appreciative of Stacy, Jill and the staff and are forever grateful! Thank you, thank you!!
Don’t listen to bad reviews. This place really is 5 stars! They have a huge dance floor! You never would think that while looking for venues that a dance floor would be lacking. The CCB has a wonderfully large dance floor (hint Ballroom..) and the table spacing is not crowded even for 180 to 200 people. Check out photos on their actual site to see. (About 10 people to a table) Also, the CCB is pretty straight forward about their cost which is very comforting! They have a lot of beautiful additional add on decors but you can get them or leave them out totally in your control depending on your style/ and cost allowance. They lay it out for you and you can create a payment plan that makes sense to the average spender. The CCB is also handicapped accessible which is really great for family/friends that might need this service. There is also a wonderful stage for a DJ or live band. Some other key points about this location are the bridal bathroom, “man cave” and bridal photo room. The “man cave” is a small room beside the front entrance that is decorated with sports “men(or women)” like themed décor. It’s a cute place for the groom or sports enthusiastic wife to hang out and get ready. Hey, women can enjoy this space too! Go visit on a Saturday to their open house and you’ll see it all. The CCB was amazing and really made our wedding day go so exceptionally well. We recently got married here this past July 1, 2017 and we could not have asked for more. When we arrived at the CCB, our wedding party went straight to the gazebo where we took pictures and had a few cocktails before entering the reception hall. It was such a great transition and offered time for some really breathtaking photos that we have as memories now. Memories are the "key word" for this venue. You will not be disappointed with the hassle free wedding planning if you book with the CCB. They are straight forward with costs, allow you to bring in outside cake vendors/own (we had our own Oreo cookie stacked cake!), and can easily be contacted via email or text within 24 hours. The CCB will help you create the personalized wedding you want! The hall itself is gorgeous and all your guests are in one room which is so essential. They offer you easy to use tools as well to help organize the venue and seating plan later on in the scheduling process. You can even make payments online using your credit/debit cards. NO snail mail required! They even provide their own photo booth (optional) which is really cute. They create a guest book with photos and signatures from guests for you! The staff will treat you like family and I am not just saying this it literally is true. When we visited here for the first time it was ironically the first venue we looked at. After leaving I looked at my soon to be husband and said,” I really love this place can this be it?” It looked at me and said, “maybe, I feel the same but we might as well look around to the other places too.” We looked at a few other locations and NONE of them set the stage like the CCB. It was love at first “site” literally!
The Canoe Club was the first venue I visited and from the moment I saw the ballroom, I knew it was the one. My husband and I had our reception on 4/30/17 and the night could not have been more perfect! From the planning stages to the night of the wedding, everything ran so smoothly. Stacy and Jill are rock stars! They were so easy to work with and they kept the night moving smoothly, from the introductions to the bouquet toss. When my dress's bustle broke right before the Father/Daughter dance, Stacy sewed it right back up (and it looked better than the original bustle!) It's been over two months since the reception and our guests are still talking about how much fun they had and how beautiful the Canoe Club is. It was absolutely the wedding of my dreams, I wish I could go back and relive the day!
My now husband Matt and I were married at the Canoe Club on 4/22/17. We had an amazing experience working with Stacy and Jillian, they were both very attentive and responsive to all questions and concerns. They helped us have a beautiful wedding despite the rainy day we ended up with, we couldn't have asked for better and we now have wonderful memories of our special day to last us a life time .
When Tom and I first viewed the Canoe Club Ballroom, I immediately fell in love. It was beautiful inside and out! I loved that there were packages to choose from that met our needs. The payment plan made it much more easier to manage. Stacy and Jillian were always available to answer any questions within a timely manner. I was so happy that they were invested in our Superhero theme and plan to come out dressed in costume! The day of went smoothly and was the most amazing night of our lives! If I could ever do another event there I would and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to get married!
My fiancé and I scheduled a tour on 3/5/2017 at 10:30 am. Was confirmed via phone call. We showed up and no one was there. I was very upset cause we drove 30 to 40 minutes to get there and I was extremely excited to look at this place. After trying to contact someone I left a voicemail stating I was upset and this was completely unprofessional and I wanted a apology phone call. So we left, we get a phone call at 1055 from the lady that was handling tours saying she was right down the street. Sorry we can't turn around we have another scheduled appointment that we don't want to be late for. She actually said " no big deal, I live right down the street". Seriously if you live right down the street why were you a half hour late for our scheduled tour.
This venue is amazing. I do joy even know where to start. They have been fabulous from the beginning to the end. I was physically sick for most of my reception and they did everything possible to make me feel better. They checked in on me. All the guests could not say enough good things about this place. Stacy, Jill and the whole team: thank you for making this the happiest day of my life
Where do I begin? I remember the first time walking into the Canoe Club and felt an instant feeling of happiness. I told my mother in the parking lot I think this is the one. Stacy and her staff are amazing. The girls were always so quick to respond to any questions I had. I had the greatest experience because of them. Thank you again for making my big day the best day. I love you guys!!
My husband and I got married at the Canoe Club Ballroom a month ago. It was the first venue I looked at and loved it right away. The hardwood floors made for a huge dance floor and enough space for our 140 guests. We loved the cocktail area that had couches and overlooked the river outside. Stacy & Jill couldn't have been more helpful. Any question we had were answered quickly by either email or text. They know exactly what they are doing and we felt very comfortable trusting them to get everything done right on our wedding day. Everything went smooth and they did an awesome job decorating the room just how we had imagined. Everyone said they had so much fun, loved the entire venue and really enjoyed the photo booth. Being able to get married outside was a plus and it was a gorgeous setting. Our pictures came out great. We had a great night and experience. We would definitely recommend the CCB to any of our friends. We can't thank Stacy & Jill enough for helping make a stressful time much less stressful and easy.
I can't stress enough how incredible our experience was with Canoe Club Ballroom for our wedding on 10/22/2016. Jillian and Stacy took all of the work out of planning - they did an exceptional job of organizing the most wonderful evening I could ever imagine. Not only did everything look beautiful, but the events of the night flowed so smoothly thanks to these ladies and our incredible DJ. I would recommend The Canoe Club Ballroom to anyone that is getting married!! We have gotten rave reviews on the night from all of our family and friends!! The prices were reasonable, the room was beautiful, and they thought of everything that I should have but maybe didn't! I am so happy with our decision to have our reception there! I only wish I could do it all over again!!! Thank you Canoe Club! We'll never forget our amazing night with you at our wedding!!!
My husband and I fell in love with the Canoe Club Ballroom on day one! We were married in the garden gazebo alongside the river in Fall 2016. Being married outside was an important element for us. Although their name says ballroom the inside is modern and romantic (not the typical carpet, drapery and chandeliers). We were looking for a location that could host both the ceremony and reception. Stacy, Jillian and the CCB team were an amazing team to work with. They executed our vision perfectly. They are professional, have great attention to detail and the service was above and beyond expectations. Of course you want your wedding day to be the best day ever! We can happily say it was! Thank you CCB!!! Tanya & Mike
The Canoe Club Ballroom was the first and last place we looked for our wedding venue. The place is absolutely gorgeous! As soon as we walked in, we knew we didn't want to look anywhere else. Stacy and Jillian (as well as the rest of the staff) are amazing to work with and made the entire planning process as stress free as possible. They were so organized from day 1, I knew I wouldn't have to worry about anything the day of and I didn't. The day went so smoothly and everything was flawless. I received so many compliments on how beautiful the place was, how good the food was, and how great the staff was. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding day! You will not be disappointed by booking the Canoe Club Ballroom for your wedding.
loved everything about this place, from the staff to the ballroom to the package deals. I love the layout of the place its so big and open. I think we might end up getting this.
My husband and I got married at the Canoe Club Ballroom two weeks ago on September 23rd, we wanted a fairytale wedding in a ballroom with me wearing a princess dress, and let me tell you that we got exactly what we envisioned! We first visited in December 2015 and immediately fell in love with the venue and the staff! I had butterflies walking through the venue and we left knowing it was going to be where we would get married! Stacy and Jillian and the rest of the staff are AMAZING from the first day we went to the countless emails and meetings, rehearsal and finally our big day they were there taking care of everything from start to finish and they truly want to make your day special! I had zero stress on my day and wasn't the least bit worried in anything not going as planned because of how professional the canoe club staff handled everything. They set everything up just the way we wanted with all of the decorations we brought in, and they also packed everything up for us and made sure it got it my car safely for my brother to take care of it all from there. We didn't have to worry about anything. Which we were so grateful for! The grounds outside are beautiful! My husband and I always wanted to get married outside even before we knew eachother so we were so grateful the rain held off till our reception and we had a beautiful ceremony outside, and then our formal pictures outside. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect! Thank you everyone at the Canoe Club Ballroom for making our dream wedding come true! - Hannah and Ryan
The Canoe Club helped me have my dream day. Stacey and Jill were amazing. I felt like I knew everything I needed to know well in advance. The planning was seamless. The day of ran like a well oiled machine. They kept everything on track. They were very sweet and made me feel special, even though they does this all the time. I never felt pressured to upgrade, purchase more, or anything. I felt like their priority was making sure I had the day I wanted. I couldn't imagine my wedding day being any better and that is in large part to how amazing they and the staff are!
I had the extreme pleasure of getting married at the CCB on 9/3/16. While the weather was gorgeous, our vendors were great, and the night was fun, the most beautiful part of the whole event was the venue. The staff at the Canoe Club Ballroom stops at nothing to ensure your special day goes off without a hitch. They are true professionals who focus on taking as much responsibility off of the plate of the bride and groom as possible. They coordinate final details with vendors, respond immediately to any calls, texts or emails, and know exactly how to throw a party! They pampered me from the moment I stepped in the door, and tolerated the BEYOND obnoxious groomsmen (eye roll). The food was great, the drinks were strong, and the price was reasonable. The ceremony location is picturesque, and the reception hall is immaculate. I would not have changed a thing about this venue given the opportunity. I can't thank Stacey and Jillian enough for their hard work, dedication, and expertise. They truly made this day memorable in so many special ways. If you are looking for a breathtaking venue with professional staff and little stress...this is your place!
I remember when I first starting looking at venues to get married in. After looking at about 10 different places, my husband found CCB on theknot.com. We scheduled an open-house and as soon as he got there, he fell in love. My husband works with construction so the first thing he noticed was the painting, framing of everything, and decorations. I remember he called me to hurry up and get there because he had found the spot we were getting married in. He also said "Babe, the painting here is so well done! Everything is so new! Our pictures are going to come out so good! (haha) As soon as I got there, I also fell in love! The white bridge with the green background and the glass windows inside the venue with the background of the lake was my favorite part. I would like to thank Jillian and Stacy for guiding and helping us every step of the way. They are definitely professional and know exactly what they are doing. Without them my day definitely wouldn't have been as perfect as it was. As the big day got closer, they calmed us down and took everything they possibly could off of our back so we were less-stressed! I loved working with the CCB team. It was a pressure working you guys!! You guys are simply amazing :D
Canoe Club Ballroom was everything we ever imagined! CCB was the first of many venues we toured, and they set the bar high! Other venues and staffs paled in comparison. We were so pleased with the entire process, from our first visit through the wedding night itself. Throughout the entire planning process the staff was so helpful. Anytime we had a question, they quickly answered it. The prices were so reasonable, and the venue itself is stunning. We highly recommend Canoe Club Ballroom!
