Weddings at the Hall

Coming together to celebrate two lives coming together is a beautiful communal experience and we are always honored to host weddings at Elder Hall.

Whether you are looking for a reception venue or you want to tie the knot and throw a party in the same space, we can accommodate all your plans for your big day. Elder Hall is designed to be as welcoming as a friend’s house and we know your guests will feel that warmth when they step through our doors. 


We can customize the space to fit your party, with space for 54 seated guests and up to 75 standing. Our tables are communal and we like to serve family-style to give your guests more reasons to connect with one another. We also have a Beckel Canvas tent that can add room or create another cozy space for your celebration. 

Everything we do centers around the kitchen, where chef Jason French and his team will help you create a menu inspired by seasonal, locally sourced food. We also offer full beverage service and can create a custom cocktail to add another personal touch to your special day.

We like to keep things simple at the Hall and let the warmth of the space speak for itself, while reflecting the unique vibe of your wedding. For an additional fee, our event coordinator is available to help design tablescapes and floral arrangements. She will also manage the timing and flow of your event so you can be in the moment on your special day. Please ask about our wedding production services when you inquire about the availability of Elder Hall.

We’d love to chat with you about your celebration. Get in touch with us to inquire about availability and let’s start planning!
