Get married at the Harris Building!!!

The Harris Building was hands down the BEST decision we made for our May 22, 2021 wedding. The building is absolutely breathtaking, the staff (shout out to Kelsi and team) are responsive, organized, and incredibly helpful, and given our last minute COVID changes, they were willing to work with us to make it the best day we could have ever imagined. I HIGHLY recommend this venue to anyone looking for an elegant, urban atmosphere for their wedding, and seeking peace of mind during the planning process. I can't say enough great things about this venue and will certainly recommend it for any future event.

Excellent Venue & Staff

My wife and I had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Harris Building in May of 2023. The venue was beautiful and the staff was a huge help. We planned our wedding from California and did not see the venue until the day before our wedding. It exceeded our expectations, as did the wonderful people that worked with us. From keeping our wedding party on task during rehearsal, to taking care of things behind the scenes on the wedding day, the staff at the Harris Building ensured our day was special.

Flexible, Helpful, and GORGEOUS

The Harris Building venue itself is absolutely gorgeous and big enough to host a ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception in the same space. We not only fell in love with the elegant, yet warm space, but the staff, specifically Kelsi Gaunt, was absolutely INCREDIBLE. Planning a wedding during COVID-19 wasn't ideal, but Kelsi worked with us every step of the way and went above and beyond to make sure that our day was absolutely perfect.
