Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Built in 1913, the Greek-inspired architecture of this private club exudes polished elegance. Nestled in a quiet neighborhood bounded by elms, cypresses and laurel hedges, the feel is of a private estate—and since yours will be the only wedding of the day, you'll enjoy the thoughtful, caring service to match the setting.
  • Exchange vows al fresco between the elegant columns of a handsome, curved portico, which opens onto a domed, parquet-floored foyer that is sure to impress. More intimate ceremonies are lovely in the music room, where a grand piano stands against a light-loving wall of windows.
  • The spacious, airy ballroom is the heart of the club, framed with a Tudor-capped fireplace on one side and a wall of windows and French doors on the other. If you need a break from the festivities, step out onto the breezy patio, lined with flowers and small hedges, or retire to the "domino room," which boasts a clubby feel and plush seating.
