    Amazing historic venue

    Stasi at SBDAC was such a pleasure to work with during the planning of my wedding. She was responsive to all my questions & her team did an amazing job hanging a large backdrop for our ceremony upstairs & then moving it downstairs in time for the reception. The lighting was beyond perfect for the look we were going for. I was blown away at how the space was transformed from one day to the next for our event. I can't thank Stasi enough for all she did behind the scenes to make my day perfect because I found out later it was more than she should have. I highly recommend the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center for events & definitely encourage everyone to visit them on a regular day to check out the beautiful artwork displayed in their galleries.

    We just had our wedding at SBDAC and it was incredible from start to finish! Stasi was a joy to work with everyone and everything went perfectly without a hitch. Thank you so much for making our big day so special!!
