    The Ballroom and South Room are 2 of the prettiest rooms in Louisville! Everything was perfect and we couldn't thank Leigh at The Henry Clay and everyone at The Silver Spoon enough for making our daughter's Wedding "the best day of our lives!"

    My only complaint was that the bar staff really needs to do a better job of ensuring that underage drinkers dont have access to the alcohol. I understand that someone else could get it for them, but there were times where I saw people underage approach the bar and get served.

    Otherwise everything else was excellent!
