Dream Wedding!

We couldn't have been more thrilled about hosting our wedding reception at Imperia! From the moment you walk into this venue you feel it's a memorable and special place :) the decor is top notch! It is a DANCE VENUE! We couldn't have hosted the dance party we did without the space of Imperia. It was idyllic. From the very beginning, JJ and Tasia were so communicative, accommodating, and focused on creating the event of our dreams! JJ's flowers matched the paper products my mom made PERFECTLY. It made for such a cohesive, polished look. Tasia was so flexible with our "alternative " requests for a private dinner in the back (just my husband and I) and for edible centerpieces that were a HIT! Tasia kept the night moving on a timeline so smoothly I just got to sit back and enjoy the ride. Our guests couldn't stop complimenting the efficiency and professionalism of the staff. The Imperia is an event venue. Because of this, they throw parties like well-oiled machines!! If you want to feel like you've landed in the middle of a Gatsby party or if you want to throw the dance party of a lifetime, do not hesitate and BOOK IMPERIA!

Most beautiful experience of all time!

The staff at the Imperia make everything simple, fun, and perfect. We are so lucky to have gotten to work with them! Every time we step foot in the building we were met with excitement, kindness, and the best organization. They have this down to a science. They accommodated us with little requests here and there and really made sure we understood every single part of the process. The tasting was so fun and exciting! Picking florals was amazing! From the coordination before the event to the wedding rehearsal to the day of, they made sure we got every single thing we wanted. All due to them, it was our most perfect day. We can鈥檛 wait to come up with another reason to have a party with the Imperia! The absolute best!
