Definitely an amazing venue. There is nothing in our area that even comes close! We chose the Blanche as the location for my daughter’s wedding and it was perfect. We had the wedding and the reception all in one location. The bridal suite is spectacular! To top it all off we stayed in the striking hotel rooms and didn’t have to travel. The staff went above and beyond to make our event perfect! I highly recommend The Blanche for all your events.Sent on 06/09/2020

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 🤩🥰🤍Sent on 12/15/2020
