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 🤩🥰🤍

Great Venue

We had our wedding here in April. Everything was perfect. I could not recommend this venue more. The versatility of the space really allowed you to have exactly what you wanted whether it was an outside or inside wedding. We had our ceremony upstairs and it was beautiful the reception was in the ballroom originally we had planned to have the cocktail hour outside but we moved it to the inside entrance because of rain and me and my husband both agreed that it turned out way better than we could have planned. Denille and Emily were super helpful through the whole process. I loved that we had imperial production to help collaborate and have everything run seamlessly as a perk of using the Blanche from the moment I met my husband I knew I wanted to get married at the Blanche and they delivered everything to make our day perfect. We had a hotel rooms for the whole weekend, making it so easy And accessible for our guest which was a perk because I just wanted a big slumber party with all of your friends and family. The bridal suite was perfect. We had I had a bridal party of seven including both of our moms and it was plenty of room for everybody to relax before the ceremony I highly recommend using this venue. Your day, and your pictures will be so memorable.
