    Accommodating and Beautiful

    The Apothecary Lofts and Ridnour Room was the perfect space for our wedding. The vibe is very historical and almost trips you back in time. Beautiful views of the Lincoln Haymarket! I loved the people who we worked with, and I felt like they genuinely wanted to build a relationship with us before the event. Communication was very easy! The upstairs lofts were cozy and perfect for the bridal party to get ready together! We also had the lofts for our wedding night, and it was so simple to just take the elevator from the reception to the loft.
