This was the best venue ever! It was incredibly unique and the layout is amazing for a wedding around 160 people with a large dance floor area! Our guests were mesmerized by how gorgeous and spacious it was inside and had a blast dancing on the stage, sitting in the wooden thrones, going up to the second level (with auditorium seats). We also had a private suite on the 5th floor which was perfect for us to have a quiet moment together and our wedding party to store their stuff! Would 100% recommend having your wedding at The Murphy.Sent on 09/30/2015
