The Engine Room was the perfect venue for our reception! It is such a beautiful and unique space! All of our guests absolutely loved the venue, as did our vendors who complimented it repeatedly! Michelle was wonderful to work with and helped us develop a layout that included a stage through The Engine Room for our band and perfect lighting. All of her suggestions were so helpful in making decisions. My now-husband and all of the groomsmen loved getting to hang out in the groom's suite, and my hairstylists appreciated the lighting and mirror space in the bridal suite. Michelle was very flexible in helping us meet our needs for the venue based on the timeline, and everything was exactly as discussed. We were so impressed by the space and everyone we worked with, and absolutely love our photos with The Engine Room as the backdrop. It was perfect for us!Sent on 03/25/2018
