Hold your ceremony in the secret garden courtyard, and enjoy your reception in a room canopied with handmade chandeliers and covered in vintage touches.

Best of all, Venue 3Two is one of the only venues that functions as a non-profit. Proceeds are donated to local organizations and helping the community.
