It all starts with a gorgeous venue. With an industrial-style design, Gilman Event Hall is a minimalist blank canvas that effortlessly allows for each couple’s individual style and preferences. The restored building boasts gorgeous wooden floors, exposed brick walls, and floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the space with natural light and views of the downtown cityscape.

Gilman Event Hall can be split up into three separate event spaces, so wedding guests never have to leave the property from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception. Not only will the bride and groom have access to approximately 9,000 square feet of event space, they can also take advantage of a vast collection of amenities, from vintage farmhouse tables and wooden pilgrim chairs to china, silverware, glassware, and complimentary candle centerpieces.

The venue provides on-site catering and beverage services, and guests are sure to love the Gilman Event Hall’s elevated cuisine. Offerings include braised short rib crostini, duck confit, crab-stuffed mushrooms, and a build-your-own risotto station. When it comes time for dancing, couples can bring in a DJ, live band, and customized dance floor to set the party in motion.

Once the wedding is over, the couple and their guests can enjoy a number of nightlife hot spots within walking distance of Gilman Event Hall. Nearby accommodations ensure guests have easy sleeping arrangements and allow for capping off a stunning event with style and luxury.
