Supported Layouts and Capacities
Our daughter was married June 14 at our church in West Memphis then we had the reception at the Columns! Everything was perfect! The security was excellent! The Columns is big enough for a hung party which we needed! Over 450 guests and a lot were from out of state. There are motels and hotels located near the columns! The staff at the Columns were very accommodating . At first I was worried that the bar was too long but it was not! Thanks to the Columns we had tables enough for the 'sitters' and plenty of room for the 'visiting' too. Clean very helper spacious!! If I could recommend one thing it would be to put restroom signs or directions on the walls to help people know there are two sets! Thank you again for helping us have a beautiful reception for our family and guests! My daughter said it was everything she had dreamed of! So, The Columns made our dreams come true!
