I am obsessed with this building. It's beautiful and has a romantic feeling. We used the main floor which was perfect for my smaller wedding (both the ceremony and reception), but they can accommodate all sizes. They were super easy to work with and very, very pleasant people!

This hall was the perfect size. And the outdoor balcony overlooking the park was magnificent. The staff was friendly and very helpful.

I had my wedding & reception here on June 30, 2012. We planned to have only our reception here & we were going to get married in Bayliss Park across the street. The day ended up being 100 degrees & humid. They were very helpful in letting us change & use their ceremony space. Both spaces were the most beautiful. They were very helpful and easy to work with. The only negatives are that the reception space is on the 2nd floor and the restrooms are on the first floor, you can't light candles on the fireplace in the ceremony space, & you can't use Ice Buckets in the reception space. The space came with chairs, tables, & linens which is wonderful because we couldn't afford to rent them after how much we payed to rent the space. They have no liquer license so you can't sell alcohol, we just had an open bar which worked well for us. If you are serving alcohol you need to hire their security guard or one of your own. The security gueard they brought in spent most of his time away from the reception eating our food. Every time I saw him he was eating. We had a pretty calm crowd so I wasn't too worried. Just irritated that I paid for him to ignore our reception & eat our food. I will say if I had to do everything again I would for sure use them again, it was the most wonderful beautiful setting we could have ever asked for.
Bayliss Park Hall is the go-to place in the metro area for that special place to host events. The staff is friendly, professional, and experienced at insuring you receive the attention needed that will help make your event memorable.
