    Stunning venue

    This venue is the most beautiful place to get married, and it is a great price for what you get. Each room is stunning, but not too gaudy or showy. I received more compliments on choosing this venue than anything else, and the pictures have turned out so well. The people who work there are a pleasure to work with, and the event coordinator they partner with, Amy Smith of Imperial Productions, is the best of the best. I am beyond happy that I chose The Blanche for my wedding venue!!

    Amazing Experience from start to finish!

    The second you walk into the Blanche you fall in love with it’s history and it’s beautiful architecture. We booked it for our wedding and not only was the staff amazing before hand, they were great during and after. Their event space was perfect, and their hotel rooms were unique and exquisite. 1000/10 would recommend throwing an event here or simply spending a weekend. You won’t regret it.
