Q: Can I rent the Ballroom for half days?
A: Due to the size of our venue providing space for ceremony & reception we cannot offer half days. Holiday rates apply to Fri/Sun rate.
Q. Do you hold dates?
A. Due to the number of inquiries that we receive, we are unable to hold dates at this time. Dates are booked based on a contract and deposit check in hand.
Q. How do I reserve a date?
A. A signed rental agreement and a 20% non-refundable deposit are required to reserve a date. Deposits paid for a reservation of a date are transferable to another date (if available).
The balance of the rental and the damage deposit is due one month (30) days in advance of the rental date. If you are booking the date within 30 days, you will have three (3) days from the booking date to pay the rental balance.
Q. What is the Damage Deposit for?

Q. Is a wedding coordinator required?
A. The Brick Ballroom highly recommends hiring a professional wedding coordinator. The Brick Ballroom site manager is not a wedding coordinator, merely a facilities manager making sure that the building is unlocked/locked up, all vendors are following the rules, cleaning has happened properly, etc. We can provide a list of day of coordinators if needed.
Q: Does the Brick Ballroom have a sound system?
A: We have two large speakers with Blu tooth and a microphone. Also, we have a dedicated sound booth for the use of whatever professional you choose to hire. We can also provide you with a list of potential DJ’s who have the sound equipment to supply all your Audio and Visual needs for your event. There is also a mezzanine for a live band to play over the dance floor.
Q: Is alcohol allowed?
A: Yes. We do not provide the alcohol and we recommend consulting your homeowner’s insurance company for event insurance just so you are covered.
Q: Do you require a licensed bartender?
A: Yes. We can offer you a list of names if needed.
Q: Do you have a pastor that can marry us?
A: Yes. One of the owners of the Ballroom is a licensed officiant and can be hired for an additional fee.
Q: How many tables and chairs do you have?
A: We have 300 of our wood antique, lime-washed Napoleon chairs.
We have 15 seventy-two inch round folding wood tables (seat 12 people each), 4 eight foot rectangle tables, 12 six foot rectangle tables, and 1 four foot cake table.
The Ballroom seats 400 and holds 800 standing room only (by code).
Tables and chairs are included in the rental price.
Q: If my wedding is on a Saturday and there is a wedding on that Friday, how/when/where can I rehearse for my ceremony?
A: Traditionally, rehearsals are held the day before the wedding and in the same spot that the ceremony will take place. Since Friday and Sunday weddings are growing increasingly popular, access to the venue two days in a row isn’t often an option at the Brick Ballroom. If an event is booked for the day before your rental we recommend still having a rehearsal either in another location or scheduling an hour before the wedding (an additional hour for free).
Mostly the rehearsal is for the wedding party to know what to do. If on the day of the wedding the bride does not want her groom to see her, she could always sit the rehearsal out, since she has the easy part of just walking down the aisle.
Your rehearsal day/time will be confirmed 30 days prior to your event.
Q: Do you have a list of caterers, florists, DJ’s and other vendors you can recommend for our wedding?
A: Yes. We are more than ready to help with suggestions in all areas.
Q: Are we required to use certain vendors?
A: No, and we don’t charge anything for you to bring any outside vendors to the Ballroom.
Q: Can I bring my coordinator, DJ, florist, grandma, etc. out to visit the Ballroom so they can see where I’m getting married?
A: While we allow for one additional scheduled visit to the ballroom after the reservation, for the sake of time, we cannot schedule more than that.
Q: Do you allow outside catering?
A: Yes, we do.
Q: I’d like to decorate for my event. What guidelines must be followed?
A: The Brick Ballroom has endless possibilities for decorating for your event. Please refer to your contract for guidelines on limitations.
Q: Do you have projectors to show videos or slideshows?
A: Yes, we have two projectors set up that cover the entire wall. Slideshows need to be made by the renter and emailed to us 1 week before the event.
Q: Are tables and chairs included in the rental fee of The Brick Ballroom?
