This is a neat place to have the wedding or reception because the building itself has so much character on its own that decorating expenses are really cut down. The only problem is that there is not one central room for announcements, dancing, etc. The rooms are all split up and rather small, but it is a nice venue if your guest list was like ours - a big split between seniors and young people. The young friends were able dance away and laugh and have fun in one room, while the older family and friends were able to be on the quiet porch.
