    Absolutely amazing!

    I absolutely LOVED working with Allen at the Floating World Gallery, and having our wedding ceremony and reception in his space. All of our guests raved at how beautiful the gallery was, and Allen was an absolute dream to work with. Allen was easily reachable and on-hand to answer any and all of our questions, anywhere from a year out to the morning of. I felt like we won the lottery getting the amazing space and such an amazing event manager all in one! I would highly recommend that everyone host their events at Floating World and work with Allen.

    Wedding Day made easy!!!

    Allen and his team were incredible. My wife and I were both the first of our families to get married, and there were a lot of unknowns in the process. However, Allen was consistently available and accommodating-the venue was everything we could have dreamed of and more! We can't say enough wonderful things about their services and flexibility-and our day went off without a hitch!

    Thank you so much Riley ! I loved being part of your big day. Please drop by and see me when ever you are in the area !

    Floating World is the TOPS!

    We had an absolute dream of a time working with Allen at Floating World Gallery. From the very start, he provided a calm atmosphere for us, which was necessary during the turbulence of planning a wedding! He made us fully aware of what the space came with, and his entirely transparent way of speaking with us was incredibly refreshing! We had unlimited access to ask questions and plan our day, and the absolutely mind-blowing professionalism we enjoyed the week of was second to none. If we could get married there all over again we would! Thank you Floating World, and endless love and thanks to Allen!

    Floating World Events's reply:

    Thank you so Much Theresa ! It was my great pleasure ! I would love to see you both again some time !
