The Gatsby is a gorgeously ornate wedding venue nestled in the diverse heart of Shelbyville, Kentucky. Invigorated by a rich history, this 19th-century building has been beautifully restored to its former glory under the care of Ben and Melinda Hardin. Calling 524 Main Street its home, this downtown setting is an effortless blend of roaring twenties style and timeless elegance.
Facilities and Capacity
Ben and Melinda have poured a wealth of passion and devotion into transforming The Gatsby into an event space worthy of milestone occasions. First built in the 1880s, this historic building has taken numerous shapes, from advertising and dance studios to an antique market. Recent renovations have infused the space with a new lease of life and a capacity for lavish ceremonies, cocktail hours, and wedding receptions. Easily accommodating 375 guests, the open-plan hallway is a tasteful display of antiquated hardwood flooring and golden inlays that represent the heyday of 1920s glamour. Crafted with love, the venue features gorgeous Italian Empire style chandeliers dripping with sophistication and opulence. Beneath a fully-embellished ceiling, guests can dine, dance, and mingle on the mezzanine or the dancefloor below. Meanwhile, to-be-weds will have private access to a luxurious get-ready suite. At the end of the night, a choice of industrial lofts continues the aesthetic with ample dining and lounge spaces.
At The Gatsby, to-be-weds are free to make the site their own, bringing their personal brand of refinement by way of esteemed outdoor vendors and caterers. The in-house staff will be available to help transform the hall as needed throughout the wedding day, overseen by the venue's dedicated event planner. All wedding packages include gold Chiavari chairs, rectangular tables, and cocktail tables. Additional items include: linens, centrepieces, and a ceremony arch or altar.
