Revisiting – My wedding venue is closed! Now what?

Edited to update: Valleydale Ballroom is officially out of business.  I have heard from multiple venues who have dates available and are more than willing to help out couples affected by this sudden closing.  If you are affected, please feel free to reach out to me and I will put you in contact with those venues!!


Late this afternoon rumors started flying that The ValleyDale Ballroom has shut it’s doors – please note this has NOT been 100% confirmed (there are a gazillion rumors floating around about the closing and whether it is temporary) but the signs are there. IF this is the case, it will likely leave multiple events in limbo and a whole lot of upset couples. I thought it would be a good idea to revisit a post from back in 2008 when another local venue suddenly shut down: My Wedding Venue is Closed!  Now What?

If Valleydale Ballroom is indeed closed, I hope the those who are now searching for a new venue are able to find solutions quickly!

    Has anyone heard any additional details around ValleyDale potentially closing?? My wedding is scheduled to be at ValleyDale on 8/29, and I have heard these rumors a number of places. I have called, emailed, left message, etc. for both Dana and Marty at ValleyDale, but have not heard anything! Please help!

    I can’t believe Valleydale is closed! I photographed quite a few weddings there. I wish they called their wedding clients before the rumors started. According to the news they are giving everyone their money back.
