Wonderful!Reviewed on 7/17/2012 Bridget B
We had both our ceremony and reception at the Moorestown Community House- and they were both gorgeous! The traditional elements of this venue are what really set it apart from other cookie cutter places. It's beautiful and big. There is even a bridal suite upstairs to get ready. We had a wonderful event.
We had our wedding at the Moorestown Community house this past NYE 2016. It was a perfect venue. We did not have access to the club room due to renovations, but the size of the rooms in the rest of the venue was great for the size of our wedding (90 people). One of the things which was more important to my husband and I is that our venue was historic and have historic features. The community house perfectly fit this want. Also main street Moorestown is a great place to take pictures and a nice setting for a wedding. I would highly recommend the community house as a wedding venue.
The Moorestown Ballroom at the Community House was a gorgeous and affordable option for our wedding. For the price you cannot get a more classic and beautiful building for your event. We had the ceremony and reception at this venue and loved every minute of it. The photos turned out beautiful, especially the ones taken on the lawn with the gorgeous brick building as a backdrop. Know that you do not get any help from the venue - once your date is picked, they don't even want to talk to you until the week before the event. You'll need to go through your caterer to talk to them about anything you need to know. But that is understandable as this isn't solely an event building, which is what I loved about it. No 'wedding factory' feel here!
I had looked at a lot of of venues and fell in love with the Moorestown Community House the second I pulled up. Joan was very quick to answer emails and had no problem with me visiting a bunch of times over the past year with different people to ooh and ahh over it and measure. I was a little disappointed the one room wasn't available because of the fire last year, but arrangements were made and everything came together very nicely. Joan was great making sure the bridal suite was finished in time for my wedding and it looked better than I could've ever imagined. I can't wait to see pictures of everyone in the building!
The Venue itself was breathtaking but the staff really made it shine. My husband and I held our daughter's wedding reception at the Venue this past April. In sum, we were blown away. The food from Bacio Catering was phenomenal and very cutting edge. The kitchen also provided our guest with gluten free options. The space itself coupled with the sound and lighting made for a magical evening! Finally Chef Robert and his staff were amazing. They listened to our ideas and transformed our vision into reality!! They also ensured that each guest enjoyed themselves and that we had the time of our lives!! We would absolutely recommend The Venue and Bacio Catering!! Five Stars across the board!

We had our wedding at the Moorestown Community house on December 5, 2014. We are still receiving compliments from guests, and have two that now want their weddings at the Community House, as well. It was absolutely perfect. The venue is so elegant, and photographs wonderfully. The environment of the Community house makes for a very classy event. We had a very enjoyable time planning our wedding with the community house and the employees. Joan especially, was very helpful! We are sad it's over, and will miss them! :)
Stunning Wedding Venue!Reviewed on 12/01/2014 Amanda N
I had my wedding reception at Moorestown Community House on November 22nd 2014. It is absolutely beautiful, for any bride looking for a unique classy stunning wedding venue - book here! You get the entire building all day - upstairs there is a large room for you and the girls to get your hair and makeup done, a private smaller bridal room to get dressed in and take pictures in, a kitchen and bathroom. The main floor has a beautiful wide hallway to layout seating charts and gift table, and there are 2 large rooms in addition to the ballroom. We used the front room for cocktails, and the garden room was used for candy table, dessert, coffee and photo booth. The ballroom was perfect, with a fireplace and large dance floor. We had 90 guests and it didn't feel empty nor cramped. I'm sure you could comfortably fit more people and tables. We communicated with Joan, who was a pleasure to work with and she had several helpful suggestions for other vendors. We had the perfect wedding at Moorestown Community House - I strongly suggest you consider them for your wedding!

She was always there with great advice and suggestions to make this day wonderful. I cant thank her enough. The venue is charming and has so much character and spirit . Not your 'cookie cutter' wedding venue . It is warm and enchanting like a mansion from long ago . We loved it as did our friends and family! Thank you thank you! Moorestown Community House!
Moorestown Ballroom - Amazing WeddingReviewed on 10/02/2014
My son and daughter-in-law were married this past weekend and had their reception at the Moorestown Ballroom. The Ballroom was elegant. All my family and friends commented on how beautiful the entire facility was. Everything was just perfect! My other son, the best man, was doing a video presentation as part of his toast and Joan, from the Moorestown Ballroom helped him obtain a screen and projector from her facility. We can't thank you enough for giving them an amazing wedding, one that they will never forget!!!!
Classic EleganceReviewed on 7/03/2012 Jessica B
I wanted a venue that was solely mine, didn't have to worry about other weddings taking place. Also, I wanted an elegant environment... the ballroom at the Community House, rather the entire building was exactly this and perfect in every way. It is a gorgeous building and perfect if you are hiring a band due to the stage in the ballroom. This place has personality and a lot of charm and you do not need to over do it on the decorations as it is just beautiful to begin with. Would recommend this for anyone with a wedding around 150 people, it is perfect. Also you get the facility the entire day, so I got ready there in the morning with my bridesmaids which made it very convenient.
awesome venueReviewed on 6/28/2012 Lauren M
The Moorestown Community House was a great find. It totally fit the look and feel that we were looking for in a wedding venue. We chose Due Amici caterers and couldn't have been happier with our day.
This is the perfect venue if you are looking for something unique with a vintage flare. We had use of the majority of the building and grounds. The bridal suite upstairs included several rooms with enough space for even a large bridal party to get ready. The building is incredibly photogenic. Joan Brown was wonderful, answered all questions and responded to all e-mails in a timely manner. The ballroom was perfect for our 130 guests (I think 15-17 tables would be okay, otherwise, it would get too cramped.) This is an absolutely stunning venue inside and out!
