    The most stunning venue; and FANTASTIC food!

    Purslane knocked it outta the park (get it?) and we had a fabulous experience. With Alexandra at the helm as our day-of coordinator, we felt in good hands at every moment. She was very communicative, warm and helpful.

    We were offered a large menu to choose food from - it was all divine and hard to make decisions! (We brought in our own desserts.)

    And the VENUE.... I mean, that venue is just so gorgeous it does not require much extra decor. However, should you want it, be prepared hire loads of extra help; Window for load-in and out is very tight.

    Another surprise, you / band / DJ is required to bring in all sound equipment. Be prepared to budget for that.

    Alexandra does a great job of prepping the space ahead of time, however, I would've loved to control the lights so that we could notch it down as the party revved up.

    Also, worth noting, no matter how much money you throw at Purslane, they are unable to keep the party going beyond the contracted hours. We learned the hard way but had a nearby dive bar lined up for the after party.

    All around a wonderful experience.
