I had my wedding reception at the Norris Pavilion this past July and could not have been happier with the way everything turned out. Paige, the event coordinator, was extremely helpful, responsive, flexible, and organized throughout every step of the planning and execution, even when our guest count went up from 200 to 270 (which got a little cozy but worked out)! We had a beautiful cocktail hour out on the front lobby and a buffet dinner outside on the back terrace, which looked lovely at night with the twinkly lights. The indoor reception area was spacious enough for all the tables and a large dance floor, and had a variety of lighting options to choose from. Everything went super smoothly, and we got so many compliments on how beautiful the venue looked! There is a free parking lot across the street for guests, plenty of restrooms, and two options for a bar (indoor and outdoor). The price is extremely reasonable considering all the included amenities such as tables, chairs, plate settings and glassware, and a dance floor, with options to rent their speakers/extra lighting/projector screen etc so you don't have to bring in your own (which makes things so much easier). Also, there is the option to bring in your own caterer for a fee and I really appreciated that we could bring our own alcohol as well. I highly recommend the Norris Pavilion!
We used Norris as the venue for our reception. At first look Norris may not have it all. However, what is great about Norris is that you can dress it up whatever you like and they are very flexible. There are additional add ons that make the venue look amazing. Lara was extremely easy to work with and reassured us that everything will go well for the wedding and it did. Jade, the day of coordinator, also kept the wedding going well. You may not have heard of Norris for weddings because they dont really advertise themselves. They are a diamond in the rough. We had about 200 guests and it did not feel cramped at all. If we have another event we would definitely chose Norris
