A beautiful spot with folks who are easy to work with!
We had our Happily Ever After Party at Friday Musicale and it was fantastic! Jeff and Emily accommodated our every want and had great ideas as well. They provide a lot of flexibility so you can make it your own unique event. They also worked closely with our vendors (who we got to choose!). It was perfect and looking forward to being a member of this venue that does great work in Jacksonville.Sent on 01/31/2020

I love this all in one venue. This was perfect for my intimate wedding for my family and friends. Mr. Jeff and Cece were amazing and were very helpful. It also is a great place for pictures. My photographer had so many ideas from this space that she bought to life!Sent on 04/22/2021

An Amazing Wedding Day
Jeff and CeeCee were absolutely amazing in helping me coordinate my wedding. Jeff was amazing and answering all of my questions from the beginning all the way to the end. Jeff was also very helpful by providing me with affordable catering, decoration, and other vendor contacts. Jeff assisted me with creating the seating arrangements and had the hall set up the night before. I couldn’t have asked for a more affordable wedding venue. Jeff even accommodated the small budget that I had for the wedding. All in all I had a great experience with Friday musicale, and if you are debating on choosing this venue I would say go for it. CeeCee was also the event manager the weekend of the wedding and she helped me get all of the last minute items needed for the wedding without having to go to the store (she’s heaven sent).Sent on 04/15/2021
