“The venue itself is a beautiful, architecturally-designed building evoking a modern feel with clean lines. Guests enjoy the natural light that emanates from the large-scale wall created from glass windows. The entire staff is top-notch and clients can enjoy having an event manager to assist with them venue-related details along the planning process. Then on the day of the wedding, their catering staff is there to cater to any needs the clients or the guests needs. Food is high-end cuisine from their in-house restaurant, Forty-Two,” says Meredith Corning of Meredith Events.
“This space is a dream! It is both a blank canvas and full of personality, and it lends itself to so many styles from modern minimalist to glitzy and girly. All the small details have been thought through and the team here is so great at communicating and delivering on their promises. I’m all about color so I love working in this space where any touch of color really pops!” says Maddie Ward of Sonnet Wedding.
