Sanctuary at Admiral is a very unique and special place. We were ready to sign up the moment we drove by and saw the charming courtyard, and castle looking exterior. It's very warm and elegant inside, unlike other venues that are a blank space that you've got to bring character to. The value is unbelievable, because in addition to the actual space where you can marry and quick change to a reception, there's a beautiful bridal suite, speak easy, and separate room for the groomsmen. We received so many compliments on how unique and beautiful the whole wedding was. We worked with Davi who was an absolute doll. She was warm and easy to work with, and knew exactly what needed to be done in order to make the whole wedding and reception come off seamlessly.

Holy GORGEOUS! We fell in love with Sanctuary the moment we saw it online - and this was before they redecorated! Now, it's even more beautiful from the inside out! The art-deco design is so unique, and their staff is so accommodating! We went on more walk-throughs to plan and measure than should be acceptable, but they welcomed us with open arms every time we showed up! Thank you Joshua and Benjamin for everything!

The Sanctuary At Admiral is such an amazing space. We fell in love with it as soon as we rolled up in front. But once you have been inside, its like a visual treasure trove. The thing about the sanctuary that makes it so unique is this place has SOUL. You can feel it. Its tempting... Enchanting.... And we LOVE working with the staff there. We recommend!!
