A venue as unique 

as your love story.

One hundred and twenty years ago this was a secret meeting space, then a school, a church, an antique store, my personal favorite...a frog museum, an art gallery, and now The Melonlight Ballroom - a school of dance, a performance theater, and a sanctuary of love. 

We invite you be a part of the Melonlight story.

Rave reviews from our couples...

"The staff at Melonlight was amazing! The space was perfect for our reception. We wanted a space that was unique and classy, not banquet hall looking and this was the perfect spot! We also took dance lessons there and it turned out beautiful at the wedding, and we felt amazing dancing such a beautiful first dance together!"

Sierra

"Not only is this place beautiful, but the energy is amazing. I had my wedding reception here. Emily and her husband were a ball to work with. It was the perfect end to my night. I feel thankful to have found this beautiful place to celebrate with the people who mean the most to me. Thank you for such wonderful memories. FLT for life!"

Richelle

"Emily was super easy to work with and very accommodating. We were planning our wedding while we were living out of state and she helped along the way with everything. They made sure everything was ready for us the day of and had people there to help everything run smoothly. I highly recommend this venue to everyone!"
