    Dreamy wedding venue

    The Blanche is absolutely amazing! This was the first venue we toured when my husband and I just got engaged! The building is a perfect mixture of historic with a modern twist- it was the perfect venue! Dennille and Emily were absolutely phenomenal to work with! They were so helpful from the very first email contact to the end of our wedding. Our wedding was absolutely perfect and I honestly cannot think of a more better venue for us.

    We also stayed at the Blanche hotel room the night before our event, the hotel rooms were super clean, accommodated all our needs, felt secure and was SUPER CUTE! 15/10 🤩🥰🤍
