Tell us a little about the venue? Is there a history or a cool story couples love to hear?
Right after my husband and I got married and moved to Green Cove Springs, we noticed the town's abandoned movie theatre was for sale and knew we could do something cool with it. One of our many ideas was a venue since we had a hard time finding a unique wedding venue that fit our style and it seemed like everything out there was a more rustic style or a banquet hall feel.
When we noticed the theatre's original brick walls and exposed wood ceilings, we knew the building had some character. And of course nothing compares to the neon sign lit up at night. We found an awesome builder who connected us with a commercial designer and an architect and the rest was history. From demo to completion the project was finished in about a year.
