This versatile venue boasts a simple yet sophisticated color scheme of mostly cream with dark green, red and gold accents. The grand ballroom’s dramatic high ceiling is hand painted with ornate detail. Exquisite craftsmanship of this magnitude is unparalleled in modern architecture. For more conservatively styled receptions your ambiance is elevated to the next level by the room's character, making this the perfect location, no matter what your vision may be.
In addition to the grand ballroom itself, you and your guests will have the opportunity to enjoy several other spaces within the facility. The third floor foyer outside of the grand ballroom, equipped with two restored oak bars, serves as a cozy cocktail space, allowing your guests to mingle before they are seated. The picturesque grand balcony overlooking the ballroom offers your guests a breathtaking bird’s eye view of the reception, as well as an excellent vantage point for wedding photographers. The Board Room, also included, serves as the perfect wedding party suite for private refreshments and freshening up before your grand introduction.
If you'd like to incorporate an outdoor element for cocktail hour or even your wedding ceremony, the front patio is available to rent in addition to the grand ballroom.
For an additional fee, some couples elect to host their cocktail hour amidst the building's first floor lobby and surrounding wings of the museum. This allows guests the opportunity to view a unique look into American history by telling the stories of the individuals that served our country through military equipment, artifacts and personal mementos.
Here is just one of the amazing reviews received –
This venue has everything - historic beauty, several options for an onsite ceremony, a beautiful lawn for onsite pictures, provided tables and chairs with setup and tear-down included for the reception, and amazing staff, including professional & helpful event coordinators! We initially came across S+S while looking for a venue to accommodate 250 guests. Then we quickly realized they were the best venue around!
