Excellent Catering and Venue
WOW! Fabulous Venue
We were on the rooftop, and it was a very special palce for our wedding. Guests loved the city buildings and sights around at night and the view down on to Logan Circle was great. The facilities are first rate with a modern space indoors, and an open area (we had a tent setup) on the rooftop for outdoor dining./dancing.
Alex is fantastic and helped make our day very special!!
