I cannot say enough positive things about Porta. Everytime I think back to our wedding, I feel like I am transported right back to that day, standing on the dance floor with my husband, while my friends, family, and the Porta staff sing the lyrics of Ho Hey by the Lumineers as we dance to our wedding song.

We were able to celebrate care free all night knowing this amazing team was taking care of our special day. Our hearts are so filled with love for the unforgettable memories created. Thank you for making our perfect September day a dream come true!

I took a gamble as one of the first weddings at the venue and I am so happy I did. My wedding was a bit non-traditional and they accommodated me every step of the way. The space itself is great to work with especially when you have the giant, beautiful pizza ovens as a backdrop. More importantly, the people at Porta are what made my wedding feel intimate, special and important.
