"Excellent venue for our wedding"

There are a few key things that really set them apart from other venues: Responsiveness... Value... Overall appearance... Professionalism and friendliness... and excellent food!

- Kristin G

"I'd give 6 stars of I could"

Super flexible to accommodate anything you want! Can't say enough nice things. Got the package which included coctail hour, cake, cake cutting, champagne, and a VERY luxurious complimentary honeymoon presidential suite! Food was amazing.

- Sarah

"It was one of the best choices we made"

We had made a lot of our own decorations and signs and they made sure everything was just like we wanted. The ballroom was beautiful. We are so happy we had our wedding at the Whitehall.

- Bellatrix V.
