My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Heights Event Center in August 2018 and were very happy with our choice to work with the Heights for our wedding. We set up a tour of the venue about a year before our wedding. When we arrived for the tour the venue was set up for an upcoming wedding and looked very nice. This helped us see how well the space could be used for our own wedding and got us thinking about what kind of look we would want for ourselves. After we expressed interest in the Heights, the owner and director, Chad, set up a food tasting for us. This was done at no charge, and allowed us to select 2-3 options for each part of the meal to try ahead of time. The food tasting was done very well and we were blown away by the flavors and quality of the food. This led to our decision to book the Heights for our reception.
Leading up to the wedding, we had several touch bases with Chad to go over our bar and food menu selections, discuss our guest count and other logistics for our day. Overall this went well. One thing to remember about working with the Heights is that it is a small business. So if your wedding or event is not in the near future you may not always receive an immediate response to emails, as Chad may be working with another client whose event is nearer. This was not a problem for us as we were reaching out for some things quite a bit in advance of our own wedding.
On the day before the wedding, Chad allowed us to set up the majority of the decorations ahead of time. This included table decorations, several easels with large frames, and a backdrop behind the head table. While this would not have been possible if there was an event the day before our wedding, we felt very lucky to be able to set up and it relieved a lot of stress on the wedding day. Overall this flexibility was really helpful to us.
On the day of the wedding, the venue was set up perfectly, the cocktail hour food and dinner food were amazing and our guests had a wonderful experience. We had our guest book and photo displays set up in the lobby area and our dinner and dance in the main hall. Both spaces were clean, set up nicely and provided a good impression to us and our guests. The service provided by the bar and wait staff was courteous, timely and attentive. Besides the bar and buffet line moving quickly, the Heights staff also sliced and served our cake. Tables were cleared away quickly and they made sure the head table had enough appetizers and drinks throughout the meal. I would also like to mention that we had some older guests in attendance who were well accommodated with the venue’s elevators, wide doors, etc. Feedback from our guests was very positive on the food and how well the space worked for our reception. It was almost 90 degrees the day of our reception so everyone was very happy to be inside in air conditioning.
Overall, we felt the Heights met or exceeded all our expectations. We feel it was a great value, and we would gladly recommend this reception venue to others.Mallory Massey
I could not be happier with our experience at the Heights! My husband and I held our wedding reception there this past weekend. From beginning to end, Chad was absolutely fantastic! He gave amazing suggestions for the meal and desserts, and my guest were raving the entire night about how wonderful the food was! His staff was extremely attentive, and made sure we were all taken care of for the entire evening. Putting together a reception can be a bit stressful. Chad helped to ease my worries, and took care of us every step of the way!!Amber Bach
The food was incredible ! . The venue was quite affordable and we were able to decorate it so it became quite beautiful for our wedding reception/dance. Can't say enough about how good the food was . Would highly recommend this venue .Raja Hassan
Beautiful place to rent!!Arvi K
The food....AMAZING. We got a smoked pork, vegetarian dish and a Parmesan encrusted chicken breast. Our guests still are raving about how delicious it was and you get a very good amount of food. I actually got to sit down and eat and it was easily some of the best food I have had in my life.
The staff were very attentive, making sure me and my husband were well taken care of. They would bring us waters when we were looking dehydrated. My guests told me that the staff was amazing and helpful at every turn. The staff knew what they were doing, were very organized and very polite to all of my guests, they wanted to ensure that everyone was having an amazing time.
The venue, also amazing. We had about 155 guests that fit in one half of the hall space perfectly. We were able to set everything up the day before the wedding so we weren't stressed on our wedding day. Chad was very responsive to anything we were needing including tables, linens and made sure everything looked beautiful the day of.
We booked out wedding at The Heights about 8 months out from our wedding day. The first 7 months or so it was a bit challenging to get ahold of the Chad but the month before the wedding he would answer every call and email right away!
Overall I would highly recommend The Heights to anyone looking for a venue. If you like an amazing staff, food and venue this is the place for you! Chad was very kind and made sure that we were well taken care of!patrice morris
We had our wedding reception here in the first week of April 2014. Everything was excellent on the part of the event center. We were able to get in the day before our event and decorate it with the assistance of the staff and all of our communications with the event coordinator (Chad) was prompt and professional. And the FOOD!! It was the best we ever had at an event and our guests agreed. Several other recent brides had commented that they paid twice as much as we did and the meals did not near as good as ours. I would HIGLY recommend that if you have an event coming up that you consider the Heights. It will be well worth your while.Joshua
Pretty darn good overall. They food was fantastic for buffet style.John Berryman
