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).Sent on 07/16/2017

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.Sent on 08/04/2014
