    The Washington Pavilion staff was completely dedicated to providing an easy, highly customize-able, and beautiful experience for my husband and I's reception. The picture I attached doesn't even do the space justice! All of our guests complimented the stage's elegance...and the price is fairly affordable as well. The Washington Pavilion has an in-house caterer (Leonardo's Cafe) - we had the pasta buffet, which was absolutely delicious and received many compliments from our guests. The Pavilion also has large dressing rooms with huge mirrors and vanity lights, which makes for a fun place for the ladies to get ready in the morning. If you're looking for a unique and memorable venue, this place is it! We can't recommend this place enough. (Dustin and Chelsea, married 7/7/18).
