It’s the foyer immediately outside of the Walnut Ballroom. They’ve added a lot of really modern black and white touches. We’ll be holding our cocktail hour there.
I love the paintings that flank the doors to the Ballroom.
Very cool black and white credenza.

The Music Room has two grand staircases that lead to the cocktail hour.
This is my favorite part of the remodel. We decided to take pictures over here with the bridal party.
We’re taking pictures before the ceremony. Since we both want to have our first meeting together special, this is where we decided to meet!

Does anyone find anything redeeming about these drapes?
Overall, I am happy with the remodeling of the ballroom. It’s a risky decision to pick a venue that is going over a remodel. In our case, the remodeling to the reception space was minimal: new drapes, new carpet, and a fresh coat on the wood walls.
If you find a venue that you love, I’d say go for it! Just be prepared to not like some of the changes. In our case, it is the hideous drapes.
