The Madren Center at Clemson University, An Eventective User from Summerville, SC

I had my wedding reception at the Madren Center on the campus of Clemson University in Clemson, SC. Our wedding was in December, so we had the reception in the main ballroom, but they also offer an outdoor pavilion by the lake that is beautiful in the spring, summer, and fall. Many people have both their ceremony and reception there. The catering was done in-house (required) and they also did an excellent job. Every employee was helpful, well dressed, and professional. There is also a hotel (the James F. Martin Inn) connected to the Madren Center, which is incredibly convenient for the wedding party and out of town guests. I would highly recommend this location!
