Weddings at The Lafayette Grande

We’re not your ordinary banquet hall; we can promise you that. From our vintage elevator to our grand staircases, you’ll experience something wonderful at the Lafayette Grande.

...but the food was so good I went up for seconds. You need to book this venue!

- Audrey Jeglic

Chances are because you’re reading this, you have good taste. We pride ourselves on the exquisite taste of our hosts, especially when it comes to their wedding venue. At The Lafayette Grande, we want your day to be easy. Such effort goes into wedding planning; it becomes a part-time job. Long ago, we decided to lift some of that burden off your shoulders and provide a simple selection process, and memorable experience for your guests.

We craft experiences.

The Lafayette Grande brings the grandiosity and opulence of celebrations from the early 20th century and marries it with the grace and sophistication of our historic building and ballrooms. And we do it at a reasonable price. With many wedding packages, including food and beverage service, table settings, and our three ballrooms w/ bridal suites, bars, and our two lounges we can support weddings up to 500 people.
