Gorgeous venue, wonderful people
We had our reception here and I am SO glad we chose the Franco Center. The staff and management were very friendly, helpful, and easy to work with. They really went above and beyond to help us design the day we wanted. It definitely took a lot of the wedding planning stress off. The food was fantastic, and the decorations were absolutely beautiful. They did a fantastic job at making what we pictured come to life. I highly recommend the Franco Center, and frankly I'm surprised that they don't have more reviews. It is a very unique place full of history and charm. Our guests loved it!Sent on 07/27/2019

Our wedding at the Franco Center was AMAZING! The staff was very helpful and flexible in every request I made (and I am a perfectionist!). Our guests had nothing but nice things to say about the venue and we feel they had a wonderful time. We would certainly recommend the Franco Center to anyone looking to get married in the near future.Sent on 12/31/2015

Very personal and professional service--accommodating our very different wedding and needs. We found Richard and Edmond to be extremely friendly and easy to work with. The building itself is historic and gorgeous, the perfect venue for weddings, especially interfaith ones! We had a lot of out-of-town guests, including some from India, Canada and The Hague, and all of them were very impressed with the venue, reception hall, and food. We were fortunate, indeed, to have found the perfect setting in the charming town of Lewiston, ME, for our Indian/American Wedding.Sent on 01/17/2016
The Gendron Franco Center is another of L/A's stunning buildings that has been preserved for generations to come. Their Performance Hall is absolutely breathtaking and is a fantastic place for a wedding ceremony. They also host concerts and performances -- a great opportunity to check it out!
I had the fortunate opportunity to photograph a wedding at the Franco American Center in Lewiston, Maine this past fall. The venue is beautiful and was very accommodating to both myself and my clients. I would definitely recommend this wedding venue to future brides!
