Elegant intimate venue - An Eventective User from GAINESVILLE

The Quinlan is the perfect blend of an elegant and creative space. Just big enough to have a good sized wedding, but small enough that every detail is special and the event feels intimate. The Quinlan staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and they go above and beyond to ensure your event runs smoothly. The sculpture garden is a truly beautiful space, and the galleries inside house gorgeous artwork! Everyone who has seen pictures from our wedding has been blown away by how striking the venue was. I'd recommend them in a heart beat.
