Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This family-owned event center located in the heart of the city offers a classic backdrop for a traditional or contemporary celebration. The five indoor and outdoor spaces, infused with Old World European charm, can be combined to suit your needs.
  • At the Pavilion, you can wed in the courtyard beneath a vine-covered arbor, followed by cocktails in the Montecantini Room, with its antique bar and marble cocktail furniture. Then, dine and dance in the Pavilion, a tented ballroom outfitted with sparkling modern chandeliers, sconces, travertine flooring, and pretty moveable bars.
  • The culinary experts will help you craft a personalized menu that is sure to please every foodie guest. Fresh, inventive Italian dishes may be paired with plenty of exciting add-ons, like wood-fired Neopolitan pizza, sorbet intermezzos, flambé donuts, cannoli stations, and s'mores!
