    Beautiful budget venue with drawbacks

    I loved this venue. You can't beat the location for the price, and you get time to set up and tear down included since the rental is for the whole weekend. I loved the unique feel and the string lights. That being said, there are some downfalls to such a great price. The venue is owned by the city and on a working portion of dock, meaning that you have NO IDEA what will be happening outside the venue on the day of your event. I had specifically picked this venue to be able to get married outside right on the dock by the water. Unfortunately, the city had parked the huge (ugly) barge they had used earlier that weekend for 4th of July fireworks DIRECTLY below our ceremony site. When I did the walkthrough on Friday I asked if they could move it to the empty space just down the dock. They said they could not because of the cost it would take to move it. I was so disappointed the venue/city had not thought this through and had put it in the worst location they possibly could have for our event. So, because the tide was high, there's barge in most of our ceremony photos. This was something that could have been 100% avoided had the venue city done better planning. Other potential issues (what's going on with the crabbing business next door or what kind of ships are in the dry dock) are something I had been warned about and was prepared for, but I had never thought there would be something tied up right where we were going to have some of our most important photos. If you choose this venue just go into it with the full awareness that you will have no control over anything going outside. Also as a side note, my veil and tulle dress snagged badly on the floor. It's a GORGEOUS floor and I love how it looks, just would have picked a different material for my dress.
