Recently, the ladies of LTEC visited a chic venue in the heart of Mid-City that offers a little something for every type of bride. Originally built in 1968, the Cannery sits in a warehouse area previously used as a canning facility. However, the past has not dictated the future and the venue space was updated with a neutral contemporary interior, stained concrete and rustic flare. The Cannery opened as a wedding venue in 2012.

In each of its three main rooms, the Cannery offers a different vibe and feel to fit the many styles and personalities for each couple’s celebration.

White tufted leather chairs and banquettes, mirrored tables with metallic silver chairs and hanging chandeliers line the back area by the bar. Rustic touches of wood and hefty barn doors give the area texture and warmth, while LED lights, a Carrera marble bar and other small touches add a modern, club-like accent.

The vast ballroom area has the capability to fit between 75 and 500 reception style, depending on the floor plan and area setup. Recently, trim molding was added to the ballroom area along with pipe and draping to give the space extra styling options for a ceremony.
