Wedding reception is the name of the party, not the mappable venue. 

There are wedding themed event halls all over japan - they love the idea of a western wedding in a "church" (they all are fake churches) -  but are used for non-wedding events too. My school has a parent-teacher dinner at one.  

There has to be an "event space" that is meant for smaller facilities - I dont care about renting a stadium or a civic center if im looking for an event space for a wedding or an office party.

Places where wedding receptions take place typically also allow for other parties such as wedding anniversaries, etc. Actually any gathering where food and drinks are involved. They are called "feestzaal" (party room) in Dutch. I would not use the tag wedding_reception for those.
