The Gideon Putnam was a great place to have our wedding. Jennifer McVay and the banquet manager Sandy went above and beyond our expectations. The food is fabulous! My husband and I are so glad we picked The Gideon Putnam to celebrate our big day!

Sandy Makis and her team were awesome! The Gideon was so beautiful and romantic and fun. I can not say enough how wonderful it was to get married at the Gideon. They were so easy to work with and willing to help and do anything I needed. I can't wait to go back for our anniversary! Seriously happy bride!

The Gideon Putnam is a beautiful place for a wedding or family event. I've captured numerous events there over the years. Their new ballroom is nicely updated and their outside views are stunning for photos. I highly recommend them for your venue location. OOTOphoto looks forward to working there again.
