Great Venue in Downtown Greensboro

Great venue! We used the rooftop venue of Kress Terrace for our outdoor ceremony as well as Suite 300 on the lower level for our reception. We loved the look of the venue and it gave an elegant city feel which is what we wanted for our wedding. The staff was very helpful during the planning process as well as day of making sure that everything went how we wanted it to.

The Hurricane Bride

This vendor saved our wedding. I was a displaced bride because of hurricane Florence and not only did they open their venue for me, they made our wedding day perfect. I would choose them a thousand time over and over.

I absolutely LOVE this place!! My husband and I got married here last October. We had our ceremony at the indoor/outdoor Kress Terrace then our reception at Suite 300. Everything was beautiful! The management team went above and beyond to make our day perfect. The food was delicious and the staff were great! I would recommend this venue to everyone!
