The Historic Eau Claire Masonic Ballroom
Eau Claire Wedding Ceremonies

Romantic, historic setting.
Reflecting your tastes.
Dedicated staff to help you.

At The Eau Claire Masonic Ballroom we believe that your wedding day is meaningful and honor that by giving you exclusive use of the venue for your special day! We also help eliminate some of the stress by giving you up to two days to decorate (typically Thursday & Friday) and one to de-decorate (Monday; please confirm specific availability and times with our event coordinator).

Our wedding chapel is designed for optimal acoustics with a beautiful coffered ceiling and modern sound system. The 4,800 square foot room is adorned with impressive crown molding, elegant woodwork and can accommodate up to 400 guests. The chapel is also available as a rain site if you are having your reception with us.

Our grand ballroom has chandeliers draped with lighted tulle, a raised head table platform with lit tulle backdrop, and a formal entrance ideal for grand march introductions. The ballroom offers over 8,000 square feet with stately columns and terrazzo floor that can accommodate from 100-500 guests.

Our exquisite Fireside Lounge with detailed crown molding and checkered terrazzo floor is reminiscent of a 1920s London private club. At 1,150 square feet the lounge provides you with many options: receiving line, cocktail hour, photoshoots, a quiet place for guests to gather, or as an intimate ceremony setting.

Personalize the venue! You may decorate our venue spaces however you like (with only a few minor exceptions). Please run your ideas past our event coordinator when you meet. She may even suggest something you haven't considered!

Eau Claire Wedding at the Masonic Ballroom:

Ceremonies

Have the ceremony you want!

Choose from 16 backdrop options for your wedding setting, from a wooden glen to a medieval cathedral! A two-hour rehearsal the evening before your wedding is included in your ceremony rental. We encourage you and your bridal party to bring your wedding dresses, suits and accessories to keep in the secure bridal suites just so there is one less thing to think about on your important day.

You bring your own officiant — religious leader, justice of the peace, ordained family member — it is your wedding and should reflect who you are and what you believe. Every kind of musical need will be met whether it is our Mahler pipe organ, piano, hired musicians, or sound system for your favorite prerecorded music.

You will also have use of our private bride’s and groom’s suites the day of your event. Ample windows offering natural light, full length mirrors, private bathrooms, and space for hanging your wedding clothes. To help you to remember to relax on your special day we offer mimosa packages and have a foosball table in the groom’s suite.

“I highly recommend the Masonic Ballroom! The staff were excellent. Decorations, lights, and tables were included in the rental which was a great bonus. The Masonic Ballroom was very flexible for any needs/issues that arose before the wedding and the 'day of' support was just fantastic. Working hand-in-hand with the photographer, D,J and personal attendants throughout the day made everything flow so well. The event coordinator was there every step of the way to make sure everything ended up perfect! You always want your special day to go perfectly and the Masonic Ballroom definitely delivered!”
