About

On WeddingWire since 2008

Maceli's is an authentic combination of trendy industrial and modern elegance. Once Lawrence's downtown drive thru lumber yard, it was converted into a commercial laundry production facility in 1963. Forty years later, Maceli's relocated to this location and transformed it into one of Lawrence's most popular spots to host wedding celebrations. Our venue can comfortably accommodate weddings from 75 to 350. Following your ceremony in the Ballroom, your guests can enjoy a cocktail hour in our newly renovated Bistro Room, while our staff transforms the Ballroom and Mezzanine for your reception.

We are conveniently located just 1 block away south of the the New Hampshire Street Parking Garage and Town Place Suites by Marriott. Since 1995, we have has been catering events of all sizes in and around Lawrence and look forward to helping you with your next event...whether it's our place or yours.

Delicious food and great service!

We used Maceli's for catering at our wedding, and the food was delicious! They accommodated dietary restrictions and preferences from our guests, and we heard nothing but positive reviews for the food from our friends and family. We also appreciated being able to sample and learn about the food in advance of the wedding, which helped us feel confident in our choices for our guests.

If we had to get married all over again, we'd choose Maceli's for our food!

Amazing food, location, and staff.

I can't say enough good things about Maceli's. The food is amazing, the venue is spectacular, and the staff incredibly professional and courteous. We had some challenges that day with a difficult DJ, who was horrible, and the staff including the owner handled the situation beautifully. We had both the wedding and the reception there and it was wonderful. If you are needing a place to get married at or even just a place to have your reception, I highly recommend using them.

Amazing venue and catering!

Maceli's catering and venue were perfect for our wedding! The venue looked beautiful and the whole night went smoothly. Mary was great to work with and we loved our planning session with her. Most of all, the majority of complements from the day were about the food! It was so good and one of our top priorities for the day. Thank you Maceli's!

I had a great experience photographing a wedding at this facility. The decorations and ambiance were unique and a lot of fun! They also catered a wedding at Abe & Jake's and it was delicious!
