Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • You can literally “set the stage” for your wedding ceremony. This historic building offers two separate ballrooms, both of which feature a raised stage with ample space for exchanging vows and serving cocktails while the room is reset for your reception.
  • There are six unique event spaces to choose from. Two ballrooms equal two totally different moods: the spacious, gold and white Grand Ballroom boasts crystal chandeliers and a 30-foot ceiling, and the elegant Portlandia Room is flooded with natural light thanks to big, beautiful windows—it's ideal for intimate celebrations, or may be combined with the Broadway Room to maximize the space.
  • The catering choices are sure to please any palate. Their in-house chef not only creates a far-ranging menu of favorites but will also customize for vegan, vegetarian, ethnic or gluten-free dishes. And, if you like, you can even hire an outside caterer!
