Classic Warehouse Wedding - An Eventective User from Minneapolis

This is a gorgeous space!! Big windows & a great balcony. We had our wedding last fall here and the space is essentially a blank slate. You can design it how you want and they are really flexible. The price was pretty good, especially since we picked a not-too-pricy caterer! Ask for Chris - he was super helpful.
