This was the perfect place to hold a wedding ceremony & reception. Beautiful décor without adding a thing! Staff was so great and pleasant to work with! Georgia gave us so many great ideas - don't need a wedding planner working with her! Yet we were able to incorporate our own ideas, too. With many family members being from the country, this city space felt very safe and secure! Thank you, thank you for making it a wonderful day!

Our wedding was 100% PERFECT. There is not a single thing I would change!! Everything was on time, WAY better than expected, and we were even AHEAD of schedule!!! It was absolutely beautiful. Everyone was telling us how great of a venue the hall was! Georgia is the nicest woman I have worked with during my wedding and she goes above and beyond to make sure the wedding goes perfect! She was even out of town during my wedding, but her team of wedding coordinators were perfect and knew everything that was going on.

The Great Hall is just beautiful! It was such a perfect setting for our giant wedding and fit everyone (300 + guests) comfortably. We ended up working with two different ladies over the year of planning due to them switching supervisors but everything went very smoothly as if we were working with the same person the whole time! They were so helpful and accommodating, it made our wedding just perfect!

Natalie Hunter rocks my socks off. Georgia was so much help, even stopped in during our wedding reception. So sweet of her!
It was beautiful. I couldnt have imagined it any other way and the great hall made each and every envision come a reality for me! This was something we booked BEFORE we were officially engaged because we knew we had to have it, couldnt miss passing up that beautiful venue!

The Great Hall was exactly what we wanted for our wedding - beautiful, romantic, and unique. Natalie was always available to answer our questions, and was also prompt to do so. We were able to choose from a list of 5 or 6 caterers, so we could fine one that fit our style and budget.

I would recommend the Great Hall to anyone looking for an amazing place to have a wedding reception.

The Great Hall is a dream wedding venue. The space itself is beautiful and gives off a 1920's, art deco vibe that was exactly what I was looking for. The openness and high ceilings provides a grand backdrop for any event. We received so many compliments that night on how beautiful the venue is. We had our ceremony and reception in the same spot and with the help of The Great Hall's 3 amazing coordinators, the whole day went just as planned. They were such a great help, kept us on schedule, answered probably a million questions, and made sure all the little things were taken care of so that we didn't have to worry about a thing. The day/night was perfect. The bridal suite was a great place to get ready. It is nothing fancy, but it is a large room with mirrors, don't really need anything else!
Georgia is fantastic to work with. She really knows her stuff and has a lot of great tips and suggestions to help your day run as smoothly as possible. I am so glad we listened to her on invitations, timing, etc.
If you want a beautiful wedding ceremony and/or reception- The Great Hall is the best. I wouldn't want to get married anywhere else!

Natalie at The Great Hall is excellent at what she does. She helped my wedding day to run seamlessly & made sure all of my vendors knew when to be there to set up, etc. She took all the worry of the day off my shoulders! The venue is so beautiful, I couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to get married. Natalie was very flexible in working with our many requests for the event.
