Gray Hotel Wedding Venue

Eat, drink and be married at The Gray

Just like every couple is different, no two weddings are the same at The Kimpton Gray Hotel. There are a few common threads, like “first looks” in our dramatic all-marble lobby, floor-to-ceiling ballroom windows, rooftop reveling at our Boleo restaurant, and gloriously happy brides and grooms. Discover more in these true tales of love and nuptials.
