This flexible building features elegant interiors that provide a classic template suitable for a range of wedding visions and event sizes. The large building is brimming with memorable architectural details that easily enhance a couple’s celebrations. The construction of The Masonic began in 1920 and it was finished in 1926. It was built to accommodate the growing Masonic fraternities in the city, which had begun to render the original location on Lafayette Boulevard inadequate. Purchasing land on Bagg Street, now Temple Avenue, George Mason and Company created the stunning building that still stands today. The massive complex provided ample facilities, with ballrooms, a Chapel, dining rooms, a barbershop, and much more as part of the original design. Couples hosting their wedding at The Masonic can choose from multiple spaces, ideal for small and large gatherings alike.

Intricate molding and beautiful chandeliers are just some of the elements that make this a memorable locale. The staff here is eager to help couples mark their milestone moment in a way that leaves a lasting impression. They can also provide catering, bar services, and technical assistance to help make the event a success.
