Beautiful Wedding Reception at VisArts 9/28/2013

If you're looking for an original, intimate and classy wedding reception - I would highly recommend VisArts! The Buchanan room fit my 160 guests perfectly with plenty of dance floor space. The paper lanterns added a warm touch to the elegant room. We put the guest book/gifts... Read More table, photobooth and bar in the hallway - it was wonderful and felt very unique because you can see all the creative art exhibits through the clear glass. The guests also raved about the rooftop cocktail hour, with its open space and beautiful view over the town square. The VisArts staff was incredibly flexible and great to work with!

Fall Wedding At Visarts

Reviewed on 10/29/2012 N B

I had a very specific vision for my wedding. Visarts really embraced the idea and helped make it happen. Many thanks to the staff who went above and beyond to make it happen. The location was perfect for 140 people. The gallery gave the wedding its own charm and uniqueness.

We had our wedding on October 24th at VisArts and it was an amazing experience. Everything about the place was beautiful and spacious. We used just about the entire place for the wedding for both ceremony and reception. From the beginning of planning all the way to the end... Read More of the wedding, Amy and Jackie have been wonderful to work with. Without them (and a few key people), the wedding wouldn't have gone as smoothly as it did. I am so happy we found VisArts.

Review for VisArts

Reviewed on 5/10/2010 ROBIN W

The event room is at the end of the hall full of art galleries - all art galleries had glass walls so you could see through. The room itself had two full sides of glass walls looking down on the town square fountain and restaurants. The room is brand new in 2008 and has great... Read More lighting carpet and electronics.;if you want a good sized dance floor (we had 12x16 i think) then you have a few options: do a sit-down dinner (no buffet tables) for 175 guests or less do a buffet for 125 guests or less or put the food tables in the hallway.
