    Simply Perfect

    Day Block was the perfect location for our wedding reception. The staff was friendly, helpful, and professional. With our late September ceremony being outdoors the risk of rain was high. Day Block was great to have as an alternate ceremony location. They helped us make a back-up plan, setting our minds at ease. The space itself is beautiful, with its warm brick walls and large, picturesque windows. With our 150+ guest the room felt full but not crowded. One of my favorite things Day Block offered was the option to pick our own caterer. This helped to keep our reception unique and on theme (we had charcuterie boards with our Harvest theme). However, ordering late night pizzas from the facility was one of the best decisions we made. They were delicious and helped to keep the party going. It was also great having the venue so close to many great hotel options. We went with the Marriott, who provided a shuttle to and from the venue. Overall Day Block was the perfect fit for us and we couldn't have been happier on our big day!
