    A Stunning Venue w/ an Amazing Staff

    Mechanics Hall was an amazing wedding venue and we couldn't be happier for using them as the setting of our big day. Planning a wedding is hard. Planning a wedding during a pandemic is extremely hard. On top of that, being a same-sex couple, there's more stress because of all the stories you hear about vendors not willing to work with couples due to personal beliefs. We were extremely relieved and happy that Mechanics Hall was welcoming to us and our vision with what we are looking for. We also used a queer performer for our officiant and cocktail hour entertainment. The staff at Mechanics Hall were so careful and conscientious of that person's pronouns and identity. On top of that, everyone that worked the day before and day of our wedding were so accommodating of our needs and were paramount in making the day run smoothly. All of our guests were stunned by the architecture of the venue and how beautiful it was able to become this winter themed event. Even without a functioning kitchen, the event planners were super helpful with providing caterers in the area that are familiar with the venue and are able to transport the food and keep it hot, even on the coldest days (we got married in January, temperature reaching a high of 21 for the day). It's such a unique venue and we couldn't recommend it enough for a wedding.

    Mechanics Hall's reply:

    Hi Eric,

    Mechanics Hall certainly provides a magnificent and breath-taking setting for a wedding, but the staff truly makes the event. Joan鈥檚 customer service was outstanding - she was able to be flexible with us and from the very start worked hard to make sure our wedding reception would be an unforgettable night. Joan is great to work with, professional, thoughtful, detail-oriented, and made our lives very easy throughout the whole process! She took charge by getting all our vendors on board and ready to go, which limited my need to get too far into the weeds. The set-up of the Main Hall, Washburn Hall for cocktail hour, and even the Boardroom for the wedding party was well done. Joan even took to helping with lighting set up during our pictures as cocktail hour was going on - she truly goes the extra mile. When it came time to later on in the reception, Anna was extremely helpful in keeping the event running smoothly, even negotiating competing priorities in the timeline. Suzan, in a bartender-type role, also gave incredible service. That was greatly appreciated! I don鈥檛 think we could have asked for a more stunning venue for our wedding reception, and what made it even better was the talent and dedication of the staff! I cannot recommend Mechanics Hall enough and am fortunate for the memories my husband and I, along with our family and friends, made that night. Our guests were in awe of the venue and we couldn't believe our fortune in being able to celebrate our newly minted marriage at Mechanics Hall!

WOW, where to start for this most terrific & gorgeous historic hall. Plenty of eye candy for those romantic shots, as this hall is a visual gem. Then we'd be remiss if we didn't elaborate on the fact that it is also an often used hall for recording music, so whether you have a full orchestra or a DJ, the acoustics are fabulous. You will be well taken care of with their team of Pro's who will hold your hand through the quick booking process with plenty of assistance to put you at ease. This beautiful hall has plenty of parking and hotel accommodations for your guests so rush on over to take a good look at this amazing venue.

Mechanics Hall has a reputation as a first-class wedding site, and it well-deserves it. It's really a stunning place to host a wedding... Meticulously maintained and gorgeous. Best of all, the staff is warm and professional, and they were very helpful/responsive in getting us comfortable in the space (as a caterer).
