FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
What is your maximum capacity?
The maximum capacity of the entire building is 250. This number changes drastically depending on the number of tables, chairs, furniture, etc. that you add to the building. For a wedding we typically recommend keeping your guest count closer to a maximum of 150 for maximum comfort.
