We have always enjoyed their staff and their food (yum!). The front of 1705 Prime is a great backdrop for Ceremonies. The Cocktail Hour bar space is ideal for entertaining your crowd during photos. The Reception space is wonderful! With their new renovations, the space is perfect for bringing in your own colors and designs to customize this venue to your specific style. There is a great nook for the Photo Booth, a beautiful cake location in front of their glass wine cellar, and a great dance floor space. The venue creates a great experience for guests, especially with the different rooms for entertaining throughout the night. We always look forward to our next event at 1705 Prime!
