    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!

    Our July wedding at the Sanctuary at Admiral was truly exceptional. We enjoyed an event that was carefree and full of joy and laughter thanks to the meticulous planning, execution, and attention to detail by Foodz Catering and our fabulous coordinator, Davi Sabotta.

    It was love at first sight with the Sanctuary at Admiral venue. It’s handsome features and abundant amenities made it an easy choice- little additional décor was needed, the bride and groom suites were comfortable and necessary, the Speakeasy was the perfect spot for an epic dance party, and each photo was as beautiful as the next- from the outside lawn and patio to the interior rich in colors and texture. We were happy to find it was competitively priced and provided our guests ease on critical points like parking and accessibility that made it our first choice.

    The quality of food and service from Foodz Catering was simply outstanding. Our food was delicious, our drinks, courtesy of the talented and charming Max, were superb, and, was served with great care, professionalism, and well-orchestrated coordination.

    Best of all, we felt calm and well-informed from start to finish- all 10 months of planning- under the care and guidance of Davi Sabotta as our coordinator. Davi was responsive and invested in our event from Day One. We benefitted greatly from her expertise and felt at ease having our questions answered, details organized, and needs tended to as we met with Davi regularly over those months of planning. On the day of the wedding, everything ran smoothly, just as we had planned together with Davi, and she tended to our guests and us with the utmost professionalism and sincere care.

    We had a wonderful wedding at the Sanctuary at Admiral- one we wouldn’t trade for anything. We are grateful for all that was abundantly provided to us in making it an exceptional experience.

    We truly love events at The Sanctuary! The flow of the venue works great for ceremony and reception combos, and the balcony makes for an awesome grand entrance! The sunken pit is one of our favorite dancefloors! There is just some magic that happens in this venue! We look forward to the next event at The Santuary!

    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!!
