Memorial House at Memory Grove Park Wedding Venue

wedding details at memorial house at memory grove park

If a wedding venue with an elegant, historic hall illuminated by natural light, gorgeous chandeliers and a working fireplace sounds like your jam, Memorial House at Memory Grove Park is your place. This venue has been a gathering place for weddings and celebrations since the 1920s. Memorial House is conveniently located just minutes from downtown yet hidden away in the peaceful environment of City Creek Canyon. The venue also features a gorgeous garden setting amidst the waterways and monuments of Memory Grove Park. I had the opportunity to get more information in the form of question and answer from Lindsi at Memorial House, and hope that it’s helpful to you as you are planning your big day!
