Entyse Lyfe had the opportunity to work with Kate and the Main Street Ballroom team for their Open House event! It is truly great as a planner to work with a Venue that is upfront, honest and flexible. Main Street is all of that and so much more! This space is amazing for any event. The natural elements of Main Street Ballroom are great for capturing beautiful photos for your most special moments! We highly recommend Main Street Ballroom!
Main Street Ballroom is such a unique and gorgeous space to hold your wedding! Kate is such a joy to work with - easygoing, creative and totally appreciates how stressful wedding planning can be, so the policies and offerings she has crafted for engaged couples are such a refreshing thing to see in this industry! I've had the pleasure of photographing the ballroom both indoors and out, and LOVE the texture, history, charm and industrial chic vibe of the space... all steps from the river, outdoor patio and Ellicott City's Main Street (so many great photo opportunities)!!! I look forward to working together in the years to come!
