    Elegant, Convenient, Seamless

    We held our wedding at The Great Room in Feb 2020 and it was a dream! Laura was on top of everything from the moment we booked, through our planning meetings, to the follow up after the wedding. The organization and professionalism was outstanding. On wedding day, we didn't have to lift a finger as the team handled everything from coordinating with vendors, set up and take down, making sure everyone was where they were supposed to be, and checking on the bride and groom. The venue is beautiful and it makes it so easy to have the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all in the same building. The food was catered by the venue and received so many compliments from our guests. I highly recommend having your wedding at The Great Room!

    Loved the entire event

    The staff, especially our wedding coordinator through the Great Room, were incredible to work with. The value was great for the area and the location is awesome. Food was fantastic and the in-house drinks were a hit as well. We felt very taken care and always had a staff member eager to help us the entire day. We had both ceremony and reception here and the change was seamless and efficient. I would highly recommend the venue to anyone.

    Perfect and magica!

    I had the most amazing experience having my wedding at the Great Room! Laura was our wedding coordinator and from the beginning to the end she was exceptional. She made things so seamless and wonderful. The convenience of having food, alcohol, tables and linens included truly makes things easier for the bride. Her input and helpfulness throughout the process was very much appreciated. Our wedding was perfect and we have Laura to thank for so much Of that! Anyone considering the great room for their wedding should go for it! I promise you won’t regret it!
