Facilities and Capacity
The Classic Center offers six elegant ceremony and reception rooms for weddings of every size and budget. Each room can accommodate 100 to 300 guests for a banquet reception, and up to 500 for indoor ceremonies. Two of the most popular ballrooms, the Olympia and Parthenon, feature vintage decors, elegant white drapery, and wood dance floors for up to 150 guests. The more intimate Foundry Street Building is a recently restored warehouse that offers a more industrial chic and modern ambiance. It features exposed brick and wood beams, as well as the original warehouse doors. Four smaller banquet halls are available in the main building. The largest of the event spaces, The Athena Ballrooms, offer space for up to 500 guests in a theatre-style ceremony or 300 guests for a banquet reception. These ballrooms have white drapes, high ceilings, and chandeliers above the dance floor to promote the utmost elegance and sophistication.

Services Offered
The Classic Center staff work together to make your wedding dream come true. You’ll be in contact with an event coordinator as well as a catering manager to plan out every detail of your day. The in-house caterer, Levy, provides all food and drink for your big day including a custom banquet meal or a variety of hors d’oeuvres and buffet meal options. The event coordinator will then work with you to design the floor plan, coordinate your wedding day timeline with vendors, and execute the finishing touches for your event.

    The Classic Center was wonderful both Emily (wedding coordinator) and Meredith (catering consultant) were great to work with! Emily made sure that the whole day ran smoothly and I wasn't worried with one detail that day. It was wonderful how they prepared our food and drinks for us so that we could actually sneak some food in. It was so great to work with professionals who were there every step of the way to make sure I was not stressed that day!

    The Classic Center was a wonderful place to have a reception. Our reception was in the atrium, which was beautiful and very spacious. The staff was great and always quick to respond to my questions during the planning process. They were very helpful to my parents in getting our stuff to the car after the reception was over.
