    Amazing Venue

    The Orion Ballroom is an exceptional venue that took care of all our wedding needs. Since our wedding was at the end of December (12/28/18, 7:30 pm), we received an outstanding deal on the rental fee. The venue was also very flexible with us regarding having a late wedding rehearsal on the day before our event. You’re able to purchase additional hours if you want but our package came with four hours of event time, and roughly one-hour post event to pick up any items that you brought in (the venue handles cleaning and helped us with minor breakdown). We found this to be plenty of time for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Also, our wedding was the only one for that Friday, so we were able to come in earlier in the day (around noon) to put out any additional decorations and to get hair and makeup done.

    Space – The venue is space is absolutely beautiful and is all encompassing when it comes to facility space. Both our ceremony and reception took place at this venue but in separate spaces. The transition from our bridal and groom suites, to the ceremony room, to cocktail hour, to the reception area flowed nicely. We had a beautiful bridal suite with plenty of seating and multiple vanity areas with mirrors. My husband and his guys also had their own groom’s suite. The dance floor, tables, chairs (Chiavari chairs), white tablecloths, white napkins, plates, glasses, and silverware came as part of the package. We brought in table runners and centerpieces, and full length colored tablecloths and decorations for the head table. However, the facility does offer linen upgrades for an additional fee.

    View – The Orion Ballroom has the entire 15th floor so the view is awesome at night. Our wedding took place in the evening, so the panoramic view of the city was breathtaking. We received a TON of compliments on the location.

    Food/Beverages – Initially, we were a bit disappointed that the venue does not allow outside catering. However, the food was delicious! If you want alcohol, you will be required to go with their bartenders. We had a cash bar but options for an open bar and/or drink tickets are also available. We also paid for the non-alcoholic beverage package so that our guests would not have to pay for sodas.

    Staff – The staff was great! We worked directly with Latosha, but Jessica stepped in from time to time as needed. Both ladies were available when needed and were extremely helpful to us. Something to note, however, is that if you are looking for an actual coordinator, you will want to hire an outside vendor for this. They help to coordinate vendors and set your timeline for your event, but they don’t handle the specifics. They do provide an event captain that will keep your timeline on track on the day of your event (she was fantastic). The staff did a fantastic job on our wedding day and catered to every need without question and in the most pleasant manner. I could not have asked to work with a better group of people. They really made my husband’s and my wedding day even more special.

    We loved it

    Can't say enough good things about Jessica and The Orion's team. The whole process was so easy with them. My husband is in the army and they were able to work with us in case the date of his availability would change and they gave us a discount for his service. Our day went so smooth and it was so lovely. From our first emails to the actual day they were very responsive. Their servers were so attentive to my husband and I. I would recommend everyone to them. They were all inclusive so it made planning a little easier and so affordable! The money we spent here was for all white table linens, napkins, all dinnerware, chairs, tables, ceremony room, reception hall and food. We did a buffet style dinner which helped on cost but they have other options and we had a dry wedding as well. They have different juice options and coffee and tea available for everyone.
