CAN I HAVE A SEATED CEREMONY? Yes! Seating will be provided in the East Studio for up to 96 guests
WHERE CAN I HAVE MY CEREMONY TAKE PLACE? All ceremonies are held inside in the East Studio
CAN OUR DOG COME? Unfortunately, due to local ordinance, we can't allow dogs or other animals inside the facility
HOW DOES BYOB WORK? If you opt for BYOB then you will work directly with your caterer on how much booze to buy. Your caterer will supply the mixer package, plus ice, garnishes and a licensed bartender. All of our caterers also offer full bar packages. BYOB is merely an option.
CAN I BRING IN A HOMEMADE APPETIZER OR DESSERT? This is considered on a case by case basis but the answer is typically no. Caterers are the ones handling and serving the food so for liability reasons, they can't handle and serve food that was not prepared by them.
If you have a talented friend or family member who wants to make your wedding cake or cupcakes, this is usually approved by the caterers.
CAN I HAVE A LIVE BAND? We do not recommend a large, live band due to the space they take up. Trios or quartets can be nice for the ceremony and/or cocktail hour but most often our couples opt for a DJ.
CAN MY FRIEND/COUSIN/NEIGHBOR BE MY DJ/PHOTOGRAPHER/VIDEOGRAPHER? Yes! If your friend/cousin/neighbor is able to provide us with a COI prior to the event date.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE FULL RENTAL PRICE? 12 tables, 96 chairs, 4 high boys, 4 extra floating tables (if needed), dimmable lighting, all greenery, shelf decor, anything listed here we didn't already mention and an onsite event manager who will act as a "day of" contact for you and your vendors. The onsite event manager is there from the morning of your event all the way until the clean up is complete. They will accept your deliveries, manage your vendors, your timeline, handle any decor set up you might need, and coordinate packing up your personal items at the end of the night. The rental price includes all taxes and fees.
CAN I SMOKE IN THE COURTYARD? Nope. It's against city ordinance.
CAN I HAVE A SPARKLER EXIT? No. Out of respect for our neighbors we ask that guests quietly exit the premise following events.
DO YOU HAVE ANY DECOR RULES? Yes we do!
Glitter, confetti, fake flower petals, balloon releases...pretty much anything that ultimately just turns into litter is no go.
We also require candles are contained in a glass votive. Tea light candles in plastic votives that may or may not show up first in an Amazon search are not allowed as they are fire hazards and will spontaneously combust. Seriously.
If you need to hang something on an interior walls, we ask that you bring command hooks or use painters tape. If you're unsure, just asks us.
HOW LATE CAN MY EVENT GO? Due to city noise ordinance, events must end at 11:00pm on Fridays/Saturdays + 10:00pm on Sundays. The bar will close 15 minutes prior to event end time.
We are very respectful of our neighbors and we ask that guests depart in a quiet manner. From four blocks down to a 1/2 mile away, there are plenty of great places to schedule a private after party. If you need some suggestions just let us know.
DO YOU OFFER PARKING? Depending on the size of your event, ample parking is available in our adjacent lot. For larger gatherings, The Lytle Auditorium has secured overflow parking and can recommend local valet options if desired
WHEN CAN I TOUR? The Auditorium is currently under construction but hard hat tours will be offered midway through 2023. In the interim, please enjoy a video walkthrough of the proposed space:
ARE YOU WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE? Yes! Our events are all held on the ground floor
