The Paxton Ballroom was everything we could have asked for in a wedding venue and more. It was elegant, romantic, and logistically set up perfectly for our size of wedding (about 250 guests). The ability to utilize the lobby for our cocktail hour and move into the ballroom for dinner and dancing was a nice touch. Throughout the entire process they were professional and went above and beyond to help us make our wedding perfect. Could not recommend this venue more to those looking for a classic ballroom look.

Chad has been nothing short of awesome. When we were trying to decide which venue to go with, he was very patient and answered my dozens of questions promptly. I would definitely recommend the Paxton Ballroom to anyone!

The Paxton was beautiful and the team there did such a great job of providing a wonderful reception area. Chad the event manager was great to work with even with me emailing him days before the wedding! I had so many great comments about the bartenders and how funny they were too! Loved having my reception at the Paxton!

I knew that Chad, the manager of the Paxton, was going to be awesome to work with when he responded to my initial information-gathering email within 5 minutes. We were in contact all throughout the wedding planning, and he was always great about answering questions and providing suggestions for my husband and my wedding reception.

At the wedding reception itself, Chad greeted us, offered his congratulations, and helped the DJ coordinate everyone getting in line for the wedding party’s entrance. When it came time to eat, the Paxton representatives made sure my husband and I got to get in line first for the buffet, and even carried my plate back to my seat so I wouldn’t get food on my dress (which was a life-saver). They made sure the rest of the night ran smoothly and if there were any hiccups, I didn’t know of them!

To give a bit of advice to future brides and grooms, I would definitely recommend having your wedding reception at a place (like the Paxton) that pretty much handles everything (tables, chairs, linens, catering, bar, security, parking). That way, the only stuff YOU have to worry about is just anything extra you want to bring (decorations, centerpieces, guestbook, etc.).

I can’t stress enough how nice it was to work with Chad and his team. Overall, our wedding reception was everything we could have hoped for and was as stress-free as possible. :)

Chad was the least helpful coordinator I have ever met. Do not have your event here. He seemed put out by any request. The staff tore apart the room two hours before the reception was over ruining my friends' night. The bride and groom wanted to have their last dance and walk out looking back at the beautiful ballroom. Also, late guest arrived to bare wood tables and centerpieces on the stage. Cakes were wrapped up so noone could get any. This was at 9pm. They paid to stay until 11pm. While they have a beautiful venue when it is all set up with rented table and chair covers it is not a place that cares about their client. Chad says that they don't clean the carpets or chairs. Gross! The bathrooms weren't maintained during the party either. The staff danced while breaking down the room early. Overall, unproffessional.

I had my dream wedding reception at the Paxton Ballroom in October. It was a perfect venue for 150 guests, but could have accommodated 200 well. We were able to rent out the beautiful lobby for cocktail hour, and the ballroom easily fit a large dance floor (we rented extensions) and the stage fit an 8-piece band. Chad, the general manager, was incredible to work with throughout the entire process. It was like having a wedding planner without hiring one. They use Hap Abraham catering, and the buffet was not your typical wedding buffet. I've heard from dozens of guests that it was some of the best wedding food they've ever had. I never write reviews for anything, but highly recommend this venue. Most of my guest were from out of town, and the Old Market setting was perfect and easy for the guests to get around. We got rave reviews...Wish I could do it all over!

Chad and his entire staff are Wonderful! I could not have asked for a better day and group of people to work with! They truly made sure it was our day and let us know they were there if we needed anything. I never worried about a thing because it was already thought of and taken care of! All of our guests were impressed by the venue, the food, and the beverage service!
Thank you for making my wedding a dream come true!
