"NCS was truly the perfect venue for our wedding. The beautiful Oak Court allowed the kids to run around in the shadow of the Cathedral while adults sipped cocktails...and Hearst Auditorium felt grand and elegant. The view of the Cathedral along with the tall ceilings with our uplighting made me feel like a princess at a ball!" - Ashley Cooper Bianchi, 2017
