"This Victorian treasure was built in the late 1800s and originally served as the Middlesex County Courthouse. The main room has been lovingly restored and has an exquisitely embellished ceiling. In warmer months, the ceremonies may be held in Centanni Courtyard. This airy, outdoor space continues the historic feel with large arbor and brick pathways." - "Why We Like This Place" - Hear Comes the Guide
"Very affordable, super elegant without being over the top, beautiful building and grounds, really friendly and accommodating staff...we couldn't have been happier with the place we picked for our big day, it was perfect!" - C.K.
“This venue is absolutely beautiful. We were struck by both the courtyard, where we had our ceremony, and the theater, where dinner was served. The theater itself is so beautiful that, other than table linens and flowers, we did not decorate it at all. The architecture, marble, and ceiling are so striking. We also used the standard lighting and did not need any extra lights.” - Review from Wedding Wire
“We had our wedding at the Multicultural Arts Center in July, 2014. It was an absolutely beautiful day, and everything went perfectly. They were very flexible with allowing us to drop things off the day before our wedding, and kept a room cold for our flowers. The process was really stress-free for us, and for the location/aesthetics vs. price ratio, you really can’t be this venue." - Review from Wedding Wire
"We couldn't have found a better ceremony & reception location! It's such a hidden gem... close enough to the city but still has a certain unique charm about it. I was nervous about having the ceremony setup in the ballroom (with tables moved temporarily behind a partition), but entering the room to walk down the aisle totally put me at ease. It looked amazing, and their setup / transition was seamless." - A.R.
