This place is amazing. The bar is beautiful and the venue is very spacious. Two rooms upstairs to get ready, a mirrored room to take beautiful pictures and later put your buffet in and a huge ballroom for the ceremony. There is also a balcony to put the DJ on...we are so glad we chose this venue.
The ballroom is beautiful with it's draperies and wood details and is very nicely decorated throughout, especially in the bride and groom suites. We were able to decorate the wedding archway to suite our colors and style and the staff was very helpful and kind in answering all my first time mother of the bride questions!
Great price and absolutely stunning! We couldn't have chosen a better venue!
The first time we saw the ballroom we knew that was the place we wanted to have our wedding. The owners were great and so helpful the day of the wedding. They helped set up before the wedding and got us anything we needed. The prices were great and they had a lot of items we could rent from them instead of buying. I would recommend them for any event not just a wedding. Beautiful location for sure.
I HIGHLY recommend this venue! Jodi and Neil were absolutely amazing to work with throughout the entire process! They were very responsive to all my emails and got back to me right away whenever I emailed them with questions. Everyone at my wedding loved the building and it has so much character! After entering the venue, you forget that you are even in downtown Centralia and you are swept away into the 1920's with the original hardwood floor and beautiful drapings across the ceiling. I would definitely recommend anyone to have their wedding here!
The value is wonderful, the place is beautiful and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a wedding venue. Thank you Neil and Jodi!!
This is the perfect wedding venue for anyone who wants high-class vintage charm without paying big city prices. My groom and I are both from Tacoma and when we would tell people we were getting married in Centralia we got plenty of strange looks, but on the day of the wedding I had so many people tell me that they understood why! The ballroom is gorgeous and unique. We were able to have our ceremony in a separate room from the reception (which was in the ballroom), and that worked out so well with timing and ease of transition. We also had two bands (a jazz trio and Sol Bird, who does motown) and they sounded AMAZING. With two kitchens PLUS a separate bar room with a super cool antique bar, the Aerie had everything we could have dreamed of.
If that wasn't enough, Jodi and Neil were super helpful and laid back. The few "rules" they have were completely reasonable for protecting the ballroom (i.e., don't drag furniture across the hardwood floors). Otherwise, they let us bring in all our own vendors, bring in hard liquor, even candles! By far the most flexible venue I'd checked out.
No matter where you live in Western WA, check out this ballroom. It's worth the drive!
The Aerie was absolutely perfect. When my fiance and I went to look at it, we knew as soon as we walked in that it was the perfect place for us to hold our special day. Jodi and Neil are amazing to work with, and are extremely helpful and caring. They make you feel more like family, than a client. The ballroom is spectacular, and the prices are even more amazing. You would be doing yourself a disservice if you did not go look at the ballroom. Do not judge it by the pictures, they do not do it justice. AMAZING!
