    We used Kentucky Center for the Arts for our cocktail hour and reception and it was ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! I would have never thought that you could use their foyer for a wedding but man, it turned out amazing. We worked with Becky Grider and she was great at working out the layout with last minute details and making sure we had everything we needed. They are great to work with for a more than fair priced and accommodated roughly 235 guests comfortably. HIGHLY SUGGESTED!!!
