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 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!Sent on 06/30/2014

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.Sent on 06/19/2013
