It has a mezzanine, arched antique windows, exposed brick, gorgeous black and white tile, and modern chandeliers. Ceremonies can take place either on the balcony or in front of the windows. 

Outdoor ceremonies can be held on the lovely garden patio on the ground level of the building. It is a walled garden with stone accents, potted trees, and flowers. You can wed in front of a water feature after making your entrance down a wrought iron staircase. In the case of bad weather, the ceremony can be moved inside to a specially reserved backup area.
