One of the best priced venues that meets any expectation.

We have done numerous events at this venue, and it is one of our favorites for weddings. They have a very quick turnaround time from ceremony to reception. Guests also enjoyed AirBooth Social Photobooth at cocktail hour and the reception. The bride and groom also wanted the new theGuestbookPhone service. We were happy to present a cute little vintage player with all their guest voice messages from the phone at the night's end.

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!
