featured venues

Selecting your Venue is one of the most important decisions in planning a successful event. The Venue will often dictate the number of guests you are limited to, the style of food and beverage you can provide, and the whole look and feel of what can be accomplished. This list is by no means complete but each of the Venues listed do allow you to bring in a Caterer of your choice. Each Venue may also have their own policies which can impact the cost and execution of your event, so always review the details carefully.
