We had our wedding at The Hall at Fauntleroy in April of this year. It was an absolutely wonderful event, and we are so pleased with the service. This venue is run by Tuxedos and Tennis Shoes, who are a very professional and talented catering company. I really appreciated the simplicity of having the venue and caterer combined, particularly in the last few weeks before the wedding. They have a host of options for decor, and know how to realize a great event, without your having to ask for all the details.

We had some custom decorations to the space as well, and they were very flexible in working with one of our friends to make sure the installation worked. They also didn't blink an eye when we suggested a dessert pot-luck, and had place cards at the ready so our guests could label the dishes they had made. What I had envisioned as a simple community table turned into an exquisite dessert buffet.

The venue was reasonably priced for a spring event, particularly given the level of service. Additional time at the space does cost a little bit extra, which is why I've given flexibility a 4.5 not 5. However, I felt that the standard time allowed was enough for us, and we didn't feel rushed.

Thank you to the whole Tuxedos and Tennis Shoes team for helping to make our event such a success!!

Tuxedo and Tennis Shoes has some of the best food I've ever tasted. Our guests loved the food and the venue was perfect for our size wedding (around 225 people). I've knocked a few stars off for the lack of response to emails. As a bride, it was hard to not receive timely responses to questions. It was hard to work with the vendor in this aspect but at the end of the day they delivered as promised.

Hall at Fauntleroy was an extremely charming venue. We used the Vashon Room for our reception and the garden area in the back for our ceremony. The cocktail hour was in the courtyard. We had 130 guests and the venue fit perfectly. The only downside to the venue is that it is older and there really isn't a very nice area for the bridal party to get ready at. We rented a classroom upstairs but it was old and smelled a little funny and it's not very bridal looking for pictures. The HAF manager Denise was very nice to work with though and there was a lot of flexibility with the time we could have the classroom for. The exclusive caterer is Tuxedos and Tennis Shoes catering. We had the opportunity to work with both David and Reed Haggerty. We could not have been happier with the service. Everything was top notch and they did more than we even expected. They packed our leftovers at the end of the night and helped with all our extra props and items. Most importantly, their food is amazing. Everything from presentation to taste. Our served appetizers were so cute and so delicious. We got so many compliments from our guests saying how much they enjoyed everything. The entrees were so good too. We would highly recommend TNT.

For the most part was very flexible and easy to work with this venue/vendor. The gal that was my main point of contact did not seem to ever have been married before, and seemed to be a bit unenthusiastic about her job; that being said I'm sure working with brides is hard, and she did an adequate job. The day of the wedding was unseasonably warm, and their air conditioning attempts were not awesome. Other than that, it was a great wedding, the actual waiting staff on the day itself were amazing. :) Food was wonderful too!!

I am extremely pleased with the level of customer service I received here (even though in the 10 month process I worked with 3 reps one got promoted, one who knows, and the final one). Everyone was fantastic. They always knew what was going on. I think they keep great files. They are professional and well organized. They always called back within the business day, and answered emails within 24 hours, with the exception of the times where my email went to their spam box (which I knew right away, because it was weird that I would have to wait to hear back from them). The venue is beautiful and they have everything you need available to rent. The space is extremely versatile. Also there is a parking lot.

The venue is beautiful. The food was amazing (people are still commenting on our food almost a month later). The only hitch was that our site coordinator was less than reliable. While the whole event turned out beautiful, he would do things like say he would email me in the afternoon with an updated estimate for the changes I had requested, and I wouldn't get the email until after I reminded him 3 or 4 days later. While it may have been just another event for him, it was a major event for me, so it would've been nice if he had been a little more on the ball. HOWEVER, other than that, the event itself was perfect! The soft seating was a hit, as was the unusual layout we used. They never said that something wasn't possible, and it all turned out beautifully.

I was so pleased with how my wedding at the Hall at Fauntleroy turned out!! I held both the ceremony and reception in the Emerald Room, and the staff did a wonderful job of changing over the rooms very quickly. The room was gorgeous, and hardly needed any decorating. We were near plenty of beaches so took advantage of this and had all of our bridal party pictures done before the wedding at Lincoln Park. Everyone loved the food that Tuxedos & Tennis Shoes provided, and the coordinators worked very hard to keep everything within our budget. We did have to spend an extra $100 per hour in order to get access to the venue earlier than our assigned time, but it wasn't too big of a deal and well worth it. I would recommend this venue to anybody looking to get married in Seattle -- the venue was beautiful, food was amazing and I couldn't have asked for a better place to get married!!

I booked my ceremony & reception here. For the size of the venue, and the automatic ambience, it was a steal! I barely had to do any decorating at all. The people who work there helped me out with every question I asked. The only downside was the booking blocks. I had rented the room from 6 pm to 12 am. If I wanted it any earlier, I'd have to pay extra. That's a late wedding! It worked out well with the retro cocktail party theme we had going on, but still, it was late. Also I was told if my vendors showed up a little early, it should be fine. When a couple of my vendors DID show up early, I ended up getting charged. But otherwise, I highly recommend this place for the value and the ambience!
