Woman Getting Married Says:

You had me at white walls and white floors, Gary. While this doesn’t offer as much of a big open space as say, The Midtown Loft, I love the vibe here. I would go super small and intimate in this venue (under 75 people) to keep it fun and flowing. Also with that amazing light and with the brightness of the space I would also love to see a daytime wedding here!
