The Norris Pavilion is a hidden gem!! I could not have imagined having my wedding reception anywhere else. Paige and Jeff were amazing to work with. They got back to me quickly and answered all my crazy questions and helped my vision become a reality. They truly made this part of wedding planning easy. All of my other vendors said that the staff was the best to work with and were all very efficient. The room itself is gorgeous and fit my 170 guest count comfortable with room to spare. One issue I had at other sites was the motif of the room and being hard to fit my color scheme. Any color and style goes in this room and you can add so much with their lighting options. I highly recommend this venue!

Definitely the perfect venue for our evening cocktail hour and reception to our wedding! We had the pleasure of working with Ebony at the Norris Pavillion for our March 2018 wedding. Ebony was extremely helpful with all the set up/layout of how my husband and I wanted our reception. She was so easy to work with, especially when she seemlessly transitioned into this role when we were working with a previous employee. She responded to all of our emails in a timely manner and was always available to meet in person, which made communication much easier. She was great!
The venue itself is beautiful and very customizable to your taste. They have sliders to an outdoor space where you can keep open to make the ballroom feel even bigger, and can create great flow for the reception. Their lighting options are perfect! This helped us limit decorations on our end since the venue provided so options for that, and could help make the space look like a wedding reception.
We had about 140 people attend, and it was definitely large enough for people to move around and just enjoy the space. As mentioned, for the Norris Pavillion, it is very customizable. This means a lot of the items needed are a la carte. Especially for rentals. Meaning, you have to find rentals for linen/napkins, other chairs (if you dont like what they offer), etc; additional bars for the outdoor space IF you need an extra one. Most venues we saw were a la carte, so we didnt mind, but a good thing to keep in mind.
All in all, I highly recommend this venue, and would definitely use it again for a personal party. The price, the Norris Pavillion employees, and location was everything I hoped for and more.
Thank you again to the Norris Pavillion and Ebony for making our special day one to remember.

Had the most amazing wedding reception at the Harlyne J. Norris Pavilion! The whole ambiance was beautiful and it was all thanks to Lara. Lara is the most amazing, kind, funny, helpful, and overall professional director. She helped bring our vision to life and was there every step of the way. She made everything really easy and was always available and quick to respond. I would recommend this venue over and over. We really liked that we could provide our own alcohol, rentals (plates, glasses, utensils) are included, and the you get to utilize the entire building. And the marquee is so cool!
