The Perfect Day!
My wedding was absolutely perfect! Aaron (event coordinator) worked well with my day of coordinator to bring all of my ideas to life. I caught a flat on the day of rehearsal, causing us to be late, but Aaron was flexible and also provided us ample time to set up for the big day. The rooftop was great for my ceremony and the hall area was great for my reception.Sent on 09/12/2019
The entire team was swift in moving chairs and everything was set up just like I wanted. I also like that they don't charge the couple to have a cash bar, as I know some venues will charge you a portion.

Beyond my expectations
Aaron was great to deal with. Very responsive via email and very accommodating. I would absolutely recommend this venue, was perfect for our small/casual setting (though they can accommodate various settings). Very reasonable as well.Sent on 03/20/2019
