Beautiful Venue

701 Whaley is the most perfect wedding venue. I love the history it contains, and the beauty of the exposed walls. Tom and Victoria were more than accommodating, and super flexible, even with last minute changes. It was the foundation to a beautiful wedding, and made all my dreams come true. I highly recommend!

Great value and atmosphere

If you are going for a vintage looking wedding where your reception and ceremony can be held in the same location this is your spot to be. Within the address they have about 4-5 different venue spaces that you can choose from for your special day also including a private bridal suite. Great cost efficient option especially if you have your wedding at an off peak time such as a Friday like we did or some point during the week. The price for peak times on Saturdays is still very much cheaper than other venues in the area.

We loved this venue! The manager, Tom Chinn, was so helpful and accommodating. We rented the Granby Room for our rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding, and also for the ceremony and cocktail hour. We used the Grand Hall for our reception and it was so beautiful! We had about 130 guests, with plenty of room for seating for all, a DJ with a large dance floor area, bar in the back, photo booth, food stations all around and a place of honor for the cake. We converted the Granby Room into a lounge during our reception for those who wanted to step away from the music for a bit and we had excellent feedback from that idea. We also rented the manager's office for the bridal party preparations and then used it during the wedding and reception for child care and nursing mothers. We had 2 babysitters there, and it worked out wonderfully! The bride and groom did their first look upstairs in the Olympia room (where the bride also shot some of her bridal portrait photos - just lovely!), and the outside areas provided a gorgeous backdrop for some of the post wedding photos. I highly recommend this venue!
