Posted this in the Indiana forums, but the location isn't far for those south of Chicago..
FI and I reserved the Maki Ballroom in the old Crown Point Courthouse in Crown Point, IN a few months ago. Now, we have decided to have a much smaller wedding, and the ballroom is just too big for us. FI tried to cancel it yesterday, and they said it is completely non-refundable, but they may give us some back if someone else books it. So now, I’m trying to advertise for them J
Here are some pictures and info:
It cost us $500 to rent. You can bring in your own alcohol (as long as it is served by a licensed bartender) which can be a huge cost savings. It is located in downtown Crown Point, and is in the “square” – which has several classier bars and restaurants around the venue, good for an after-reception cocktail.
Our date was August 16, 2014.
