We struggled to re-plan our wedding multiple times during the COVID-19 pandemic and ended up celebrating with our close family at 223 Main. When our photographer and guests said they loved the space, we decided to open it up to the public for other couples to enjoy.
223 Main is the perfect space for intimate weddings and celebrations! Our goal is to help other couples frustrated with all of the options and re-planing, celebrate their big day while still following current guidelines and regulations. 223 Main provides couples with a beautiful, open-concept space that is entirely customizable to meet their needs and style.
