The Old Metropolitan Hall is the perfect venue for a wedding ceremony and reception. By itself, The Old Met is beautiful with so many special details that it does not require many additions. My ... Read more wedding had approximately 50 guests and we were able to elegantly push the tables back to seat everyone for the ceremony. At dinner we used their amazing farmhouse tables that are certainly worth the additional small fee. There was not a detail that wasn’t considered when designing this space. The downstairs made the perfect reception space and we were able to dance the night away using their surround sound that was perfect for not only the reception but also the ceremony. I mostly used their recommended vendors and they did not disappoint. Most importantly was their genuine excitement and investment into my wedding. That credit specifically goes to Sarah, their Events and Venue Manager. She was outstanding and so much fun to work with. They also have wedding planning services that paired me with Steph Saunders, at Steph Saunders Wedding and Events for my day of coordination. This venue is very affordable for everything that you get. I would absolutely recommend this venue for any event!

Beautiful venue is a great location

We had a wonderful experience planning and hosting our wedding ceremony and reception at Old Met. Our main contact, Sarah, was extremely responsive, friendly, and professional throughout the entire ... Read more planning process. She helped to minimize our stress throughout the process and shared great ideas with us based on her experiences working with other couples. We always felt like we were in good hands! The venue itself is beautiful and felt very true to us/our style. The venue was a great size for our guest list (approximately 60 guests); it provided plenty of space, yet still felt intimate. The space would also work well for a slightly larger guest list. The location is extremely convenient for guests with hotels and restaurants within walking distance on the downtown mall. We also loved the fact that our guests were able to experience the Downtown Mall and the heart of Cville. I highly recommend hosting your wedding or another special event at Old Met!

Sarah at OMH was a pleasure to work with, super responsive, and was very helpful with any and all questions we had. The space is super versatile, gorgeous on it's own but easy to decorate to really ... Read more wow, and is full of character. Our guests gave endless compliments about how much they loved the venue, and how unique the bar area downstairs is. I highly recommend hiring Steph Saunders at Old Met as your coordinator if you need one, she is an absolute pleasure to work with. She kept us calm for our big day, was very organized, and we couldn't have done it without her.
