"Love it! Can't wait to host an event here. Simply beautiful!" - Ayana O., Facebook

"Todd and his staff were there for me every step of the way to ensure that my vision was carried out. He Always called me back right away when I would leave messages with little questions that would arise throughout the planning process. During my outdoor reception, there was a terrible storm and Todd and his staff acted quickly to make sure things were moved and changed to our back up plan. He handled my rentals too through a company he uses often which also took a major headache off my hands. His team worked their butts off at my event to make sure everything was just as I had imagined!" Kathryn, Wedding Wire

"The Brownstone is a beautiful building. A lot of my friends recently got married and were mad it wasn't on the radar for them! I would definitely consider using Butlers and the Brownstone again for other events and to recommend them for other brides. " - Tameka, Wedding Wire

"Todd was great to work with! It was a beautiful venue and worked well for a wedding of 100. They worked well with special requests we had! Great venue and great food!" - reviewer, Wedding Wire

"The macaroni and cheese bar and the smores bar were the talk of the reception! The Brownstone was the perfect location for a wedding. We were able to start with an outside cocktail hour and then proceed to the ballroom when the guest of honor arrived. The venue offered everything we needed!" - reviewer, Project Wedding
