This is a great place to host a big reception, especially when you're on a bit of a budget and a time constraint! The hall is huge, and it can hold over 200 people. It's a bit simple, but with the right decorations the hall looked just beautiful! What I really liked about it was that there was enough room for all our guests, and they had a huge dance floor, which was great. They had a great set-up for the bar, which was apart from the rest of the room, so we were able to keep all the alcohol in one area. The hall manager and director, Mike and Ben, were really great about helping us to plan for this event. We had access at 8'oclock in the morning for the DJ and the caterers and the florist to set up, and it worked out great! Everyone had a wonderful time!

Ben, the hall manager, is very nice and easy to talk to. He's full of great ideas and helped us a lot w/ arranging the tables and setting up as i had about 200 guests. I would use this place again for a large event.

Overall, I was quite pleased with the Firemen's Hall.

Praises:
- Ben, the hall manager, completely understood our situation (two college students with a tight wedding budget) and gave us a discount on the rental fee. (He also supplied fountain drinks for no additional cost.)
- We were given access to the hall on numerous occasions to plan / set up the decor.
- We supplied a floor plan to Ben prior to the wedding date and when we showed up the morning of, all of the tables and chairs in both the ceremony and reception areas were already set up to our liking.

Hiccups:
- It takes many tries to reach the hall by phone. However, the venue staff is very good at replying to e-mails.
- One of the hall's security guards failed to turn off his cell phone during the ceremony. It, of course, decided to go off just as I was walking down the aisle.
- It took Ben a bit longer than necessary to return our security deposit.

Like I said earlier, with all things considered, I am pleased with my experience with the Firemen's Hall and its staff. If I had to plan my wedding all over again, with the same budgetary constraints, I would choose the Firemen's Hall once again.
