    This venue is absolutely amazing and my wedding was absolutely perfect. It was beautiful, elegant, romantic, unique to us, and was exactly what I envisioned in my head. I will recommend them to everyone I can in the future. Here are more details:

    THE VENUE
    The space is gorgeous, unique, vintage, and loaded with character. It was a men's club in the 30's and has so many details that make the space have a great feel. We utilized the stage both for the ceremony and for our 8-piece reception band. The space was made for dancing and the sound system in the space is amazing. I received compliments all night about the venue.

    THE STAFF
    I was amazed to find out that the venue rental included a day-of coordinator, and then was even more blown away by our coordinator, Eddie. Eddie made sure that everything went so beautifully and smoothly on our day, but he also was so attentive and involved from the day we met all the way up to our actual day. Todd is the space manager, and he helped create the environment in exactly the specifications I desired and then ran all the tech the evening of including putting on a light show for us to accompany our band. Claire owns the building and she is so personable and wants you to have the most amazing day of your life and does everything she can to be sure it happens.

    INCLUDED
    You can't beat the price of this venue and everything it includes. The venue rental encompasses tables, chairs, lounge furniture, set up, staff, sound system, linens, china, flatware, and for extra they'll do your catering too. Claire booked our caterer and I received so many compliments on the food. Plus, any changes or adjustments you want to make they will accommodate. They have no vendor restrictions and they also know a bunch of vendors if you don't know who to hire.

    I just can't speak highly enough about Sunset Temple and I can't thank them enough for making our special day truly miraculous.
