All About Storehouse 408 Cambridge
The Venue Exterior:
One of the most amazing things about this venue is that it looks as minimal on the outside as on the inside. It’s like having a place to yourself and you can decorate the space however you want to.
On the outside, it looks like a modern piece of architecture with a hut-shaped roof style. The walls are painted in dark grey with sleek, glass doors and windows installed to make it look attractive. There are two vases of flowers on either side of the entrance door filled with a generous bunch of fresh flowers.
Around it, you can see concrete walls and a polished concrete floor that gives a very smooth look.
The Venue Interior:
When you walk inside, the first thing that greets you is a customized doormat that says ‘hi there!’ Number one way of attracting the guests, indeed. And for the ceiling, they have used beer rollers and have hung cute ceiling lights from it. A nice way for a warm welcome.
Next up, there are glass doors that lead you straight to the main hall one, yes there are more than one main halls, there are actually five in total. Each main hall can easily accommodate as small a number as 30 and as big as up to 160 people.
There is a sufficient number of windows to let as much sunlight stream in as possible. Daylight ceremonies look especially beautiful because of the light and subtle interior of the venue.
The walls are painted in a white shade and the birth wall is made of bricks, giving the room a very original look. What’s cool about this place is that there’s a door inside that opens in the courtyard outside where, oftentimes, the wedding ceremonies are. So, that the guests can have easy access to the courtyard.
The door pulls up like a blind and curves a little before sitting fixed on the ceiling, so it does not get in the way. Definitely an awesome feature.
There are minimal and unique lights hanging from the ceiling and all of these lights, everywhere, are warm and light up the room in just the right way.
The Flex Room & Private Bathroom for The Couple:
Just beside the hall, is a hallway that has flex room on one side of it. The flex room is basically for the couples where they can get ready, click their pictures, keep their gifts in, and wait for the guests to settle down so they can show up together in case they don’t want the guests seeing them prior to the ceremony.
Also, they get a separate bathroom space, as well for their personal use. And the bathroom is slightly bigger than the rest of the powder rooms. The interior is also super cute with beige paint and matching printed tiles. It’s minimal with a wooden floor, sink, and a toilet seat. However, the space is just enough for changing clothes.
The Powder Rooms:
Storehouse 408 offers exactly seven powder rooms for the guests that are also gender neutral. The space is small as compared to the private bathroom for the couple but it’s enough, otherwise. All the doors of this venue are matte black with gold handles and black details on them.
The interior of the powder room is somewhat similar to the private bathroom. It has a vanity, and a toilet and the staff makes sure that they are always well-kempt.
