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

Definitely the perfect venue for our evening cocktail hour and reception to our wedding! We had the pleasure of working with Ebony at the Norris Pavillion for our March 2018 wedding. Ebony was extremely helpful with all the set up/layout of how my husband and I wanted our reception. She was so easy to work with, especially when she seemlessly transitioned into this role when we were working with a previous employee. She responded to all of our emails in a timely manner and was always available to meet in person, which made communication much easier. She was great!

The venue itself is beautiful and very customizable to your taste. They have sliders to an outdoor space where you can keep open to make the ballroom feel even bigger, and can create great flow for the reception. Their lighting options are perfect! This helped us limit decorations on our end since the venue provided so options for that, and could help make the space look like a wedding reception.

We had about 140 people attend, and it was definitely large enough for people to move around and just enjoy the space. As mentioned, for the Norris Pavillion, it is very customizable. This means a lot of the items needed are a la carte. Especially for rentals. Meaning, you have to find rentals for linen/napkins, other chairs (if you dont like what they offer), etc; additional bars for the outdoor space IF you need an extra one. Most venues we saw were a la carte, so we didnt mind, but a good thing to keep in mind.

All in all, I highly recommend this venue, and would definitely use it again for a personal party. The price, the Norris Pavillion employees, and location was everything I hoped for and more.

Thank you again to the Norris Pavillion and Ebony for making our special day one to remember.

Had the most amazing wedding reception at the Harlyne J. Norris Pavilion! The whole ambiance was beautiful and it was all thanks to Lara. Lara is the most amazing, kind, funny, helpful, and overall professional director. She helped bring our vision to life and was there every step of the way. She made everything really easy and was always available and quick to respond. I would recommend this venue over and over. We really liked that we could provide our own alcohol, rentals (plates, glasses, utensils) are included, and the you get to utilize the entire building. And the marquee is so cool!

I cannot recommend the Harlyne J Norris Pavilion enough! Although it is more of a DIY kind of venue, if you're prepared to put in some time you can truly create a one of a kind wedding here. The space is quite large, with several spaces for dual purposes. We used the front area for the cocktail hour, the patio as a chill outdoor hang out area, the foyer for our ohotobooth and the ballet studio for our buffet!

A huge selling point of this venue is that they let you bring in your own alcohol, which saves thousands of dollars. It's also extremely reasonably priced, and the staff is so on point. Our coordinator Lara, was always available for any questions we had which was very much appreciated. Overall, we would absolutely recommend this venue, thank you for helping us pull off our dream wedding!!
