Recently my husband and I got married and the venue the place itself is beautiful, but I will never spend another dime renting out this venue if Mobly still in charge. When I first met with him he was very pleasant. A week before our wedding I call to set an appointment so that I can show my decorator a visual of what I want the decor and set up to be. Mobly was very nasty he ask me a million question on why I need to see the venue after interrogating me he finally schedule an appointment for Friday morning at 7 am he never showed nor return any of my calls.

The lobby and ball room are gorgeous. The mood of the room during our reception was so great. I loved the balcony at night as well. In the middle of us planning our wedding the center changed management and a few things we were promised were no delivered. For example, we were promised to have a piano in the room and my father was planning to use it to preform a song, but on the day of the wedding, it was no where to be found.

Patsy, the event coordinator, was very nice to work with. This place also has some rules you need to follow, but it’s worth it. The venue is beautiful and really close to downtown and the intracoastal which makes for nice pictures. We got a lot of compliments that night. Everyone was really impressed with the venue. I’m very happy that we were able to have our reception there. It’s the perfect size for around 100 people. I would not recommend much more than 100 people for this venue though. I would say max 120ish. The ballroom area is beautiful with the ceiling draping and lights. It is also very neutral which makes it easy to use any color palette inside to decorate it.

Beautiful venue, affordable, and very accommodating venue. I would highly recommend for parties with 120 people or less. Venue is crowded when you have more than that. Our ceremony was held in the very beautiful courtyard and our reception was held upstairs. Mobly was a pleasure to work with.

Beware. The person who coordinates events for this venue has a horrible attitude and a rude persona. He often oscillates between being nice and rude. Not very reliable at all. Takes forever to respond to phone calls. Again. Beware. If you're looking for a cheap venue and don't care about anything else, proceed at your own risk.
