Why We Like This Place

• The classical design of the Engelhood Court room is marked by marble floors, recessed archways, and access to the museum galleries, which your guests can tour before the event.

• Outdoor weddings are charming in the Memorial Garden. It’s a beautiful courtyard filled with stone sculptures and pebbled walkways that’s well suited for everything from exchanging vows to sipping cocktails.

• Intimate gatherings feel right at home in the Ballantine House, with its oak paneling, rich forest-green carpet and elegant lighting.
