    Mechanics Hall certainly provides a magnificent and breath-taking setting for a wedding, but the staff truly makes the event. Joan’s 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’t 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!

    Where to begin? Mr. Bob Kennedy and the Mechanic's Hall team are absolutely fantastic! There are many moving parts to a Indian Hindu wedding. The team is incredibly kind, professional, and responsive to everything. The Hall is stunning and is the perfect backdrop when you want to make a statement. I highly recommend hosting your wedding at Mechanic's 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).
