Love the Hoff Center!
My husbands grandparents were running late to the ceremony because of a train. A member of their staff met them outside in the rain and parked their car for them. They even allowed us to come back at a later date to pick up the decorations we didn’t want to worry about that night. They truly went above and beyond. I would recommend this venue to anyone.
1000/10 Incredible Venue!
The venue also works with a rental company so any linens you need you can work with them to coordinate colors and they work these rentals into your quote. This amazed me because it took one less thing off my plate to worry about! They also offer rentals of china and silverware, making it yet another thing less to worry about!
We used PACE for both our ceremony and reception space and they made the transition so very seamless. I loved that we were able to let our guests visit the art gallery during the room flip to entertain them as well, it was a wonderful little touch that just made our day that much more unique. At the end of the night, we did not have to have a plan to pack up all of our things, the PACE team takes care of all of that and we just had to pick up our belongings the next week. I absolutely loved that detail! It really was the icing on the cake to make our wedding that much more enjoyable for all!
My husband and I have said over and over that if we had to do it all over again we would not change a thing. I cannot say enough positive things about PACE and the team supporting them! It is a beautiful, unique space that offers multiple spaces to host your ceremony and reception. We received so many compliments from our guests on the space and how unique it was, and many have visited on Hoff Fourth Fridays since! If you love a modern but industrial look, please do not sit on this venue! No gatekeeping here, I’ve recommended the venue to several family and friends since we had our wedding there!
