When I started looking into reception locations, I didn’t even know the House of Blues was an option. I thought it could be an interesting venue and set up an appointment. Within the first ten minutes of the meeting with Rachel, I knew that HOB was the perfect location for our reception. Rachel was amazing to work with throughout the whole planning process. She was quick to respond to e-mails with all my questions and she made sure to keep the whole process moving along and keeping me on pace to get things done when they needed to happen. She also handled coordinating all the deliveries and set up with the various vendors we used for our music, photography, cake and flowers. When we did our final walk through the week before the reception, Rachel was so helpful in helping me nail down all the details and fully wrap my head around how everything was going to look. And on the day of the wedding, Rachel was there to make sure everything ran smoothly. She helped coordinate the timing on everything with the DJ and made sure we were where we needed to be at all the right times. She was so great and I wish I could work with her again sometime soon!
With regard to HOB in general, I could not have been happier. The food was amazing – everyone I talked to said it was the best “reception food” they’d ever had. Everything was gorgeous – from the table set up to the lighting and candles. The on-site technicians handled designing and setting up all the lighting in a way that would coordinate with our colors and make the space look amazing. And really, you can’t go wrong with a head table on a stage where so many awesome bands and performers have appeared over the years! HOB provides an amazing and unique location for your reception and I would definitely recommend it.
Having our wedding ceremony at the HOB was totally awesome! The venue is amazing, the staff is fantastic, and it really made for a one-of-a-kind, spectacular event. I found that the cost for the rental was not much more (and actually less in some cases) than renting an art gallery or something similar, and after including the staff's professionalism and coordination (because they put on large scale events all the time) it was totally worth it.
