    Laura and her team made this a dream--it was affordable, orginal, and truly amazing. Things to know: you need experienced people on your side to make it work (set up, load in, catering, planners, the works), it gets a little warm, and the acoustics aren't perfect (which makes sense because of all of the concrete). Nonetheless, we had a great time and everyone LOVED the venue. Simple centepieces and uplighting were all we needed to make it look gorgeous. Highly recommend (but know what you're getting into).

    My daughter's wedding at the Parthenon was beautiful! It is a very unique venue! The only negative comment I have is that there is no flexibility on when you can set up. They are open until 4:30 on Saturdays so until they close, no one could get into the building to set up. It made for a very hectic hour and a half! They do have trouble cooling the building because the ceilings are so high so it was a bit warm in the building on a hot July night.
