Such a wonderful experience!

I booked my wedding with The Great Room on VERY short notice, after my original wedding venue cancelled our wedding 3 weeks prior to our event due to COVID-19. Angie was so helpful in getting us a tour as quickly as possible and making all arrangements. We emailed maybe 20 times back and forth to get the contract/menu/guest count right, and she happily corresponded with me. I successfully replanned my wedding in just 3 weeks and Angie was a pivotal part of that. She made sure every detail was in place exactly how I envisioned. You also cant beat the price for their beautiful space! Although it was not exactly like our original venue, it was spacious, romantic, and I wouldn't change anything about our wedding.

Unbelievably Professional & Reasonable

The Great Room is an absolute steal that I would recommend to ANYONE. At just $1,750 for four hours on a Sunday, the historic venue provides those sought-after industrial vibes in a classy room that needs little further decoration. The covered deck was a great space to spread out into. The staff could not have been more lovely and professional - they elevated our night and made it feel even more special. Angie is a true expert who makes planning and coordination simple, and you'll spend the whole process feeling like you're in good hands. She recommended many of our additional vendors to us as well! Lastly, while you won't be able to choose your own caterer, the food from Putting On The Ritz was AMAZING, and they really try to work with you if you want to supplement alcohol packages, etc. Can't say enough good things!

Perfect For Us!

The Great Room was absolutely perfect for us! They were incredibly flexible with us (we planned our whole wedding from Hawaii) and had to postpone once due to COVID. During the wintertime they keep the entire place decorated for Christmas which was perfect and elegant! It meant we didn't have to do more for decor ourselves. Angie took so much stress and weight off my shoulders as she did so much work behind the scenes to make my wedding so beautiful! Her and her team were so friendly and set up everything just as I had envisioned it! There a surplus of parking, it's in a beautiful historic building, and offered a late night wedding. I absolutely loved it, especially for the price. I would definitely recommend it to anyone else!
