I had the perfect Wedding at Memorial Hall

I cannot say enough amazing things about my wedding at Memorial Hall aka The Please Touch Museum and Br没l茅e Catering.
Every person I worked with was accommodating and compassionate. Terri is an absolute angel. Our bridal attendant was superb. Every single guest raved about the food! All the appetizers were unreal and the main dishes were to die for.
Planning the event went so smoothly and I felt so confident going into the wedding day that everything was going to be perfect and it absolutely was perfect. And I know I had the most unique and beautiful reception venue. I mean the carousel sold me the minute I saw it and everyone was FLOORED by the beauty of Hamilton Hall. I cannot recommend Memorial Hall/ The Please Touch Museum enough.

Amazing Wedding!

We had our wedding at the Please Touch Museum and it was amazing! The venue was absolutely stunning, so much fun with the carousel and our DJ up in the multi-colored torch, and the night ran very smoothly. Terri and her team were very responsive to our (many) questions and helped guide us through the process. Many of our friends and family said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. I can't recommend PTM enough

Amazing unexpected wedding venue

We are so happy we chose to have our wedding at the Please Touch Museum! Our guests are still talking about how great everything was. The entire process was easy and the venue was gorgeous. We were able to have a beautifully elegant wedding while still incorporating some fun elements. We would definitely recommend this venue for anyone looking for a unique wedding.
