    a perfect day!

    We had our wedding at the harris building this past weekend and everything was perfect! The staff was all very helpful, especially during the room switch from ceremony to reception. We were off taking pictures between & everything was set to go for intros right when we got back! The DJ Bradley was awesome & played all of the songs we requested! He was also very helpful keeping our timeline on track. From the very beginning of planning to the end of the night, everyone was so helpful & made this much less stressful. 12/10 would recommend the harris building! We cannot thank them enough!!!

    Amazing Experience

    Our wedding day at the Harris Building exceeded expectations beyond belief! The Harris Building gave us the most gorgeous wedding ceremony and reception all at one place. Providing us with an exceptional Event Coordinator made planning our wedding the most enjoyable experience with literally no stress! They covered everything from Valet, Tables, Chairs, Linens, DJ, Photography and Floral! Eight months later and our friends and family still rave about our wedding. We just cannot express enough how wonderful every single detail was. It truly was the best day of our lives!
