I offer you this take on this rentable loft style ground floor space - host a small elopement/intimate wedding ceremony. The space is available for a minimum of a 2 hour rental at $300 - you can keep it simple and bring in a few chairs to create the perfect aisle, hire a professional photographer (like those housed within) and get married! Or contact them directly to inquire about the possibilities of bringing in a few tables or food and beverages.
I see this as the perfect winter elopement space - the huge windows let in so much light and the space is beautiful as is, no need to pay for and bring in decorations.
