    Loved using the VAHS for our wedding reception. The open area by the gift shop was great for cocktail hour and inside the hall was spacious enough to accommodate all of our guests. They were super nice to work with and overall I loved it! Lighting and chair rentals are a must though! They really transformed the space.
