If you’re looking for an intimate wedding space that still has enough room for you to express your creativity, then we can’t recommend 5Eleven Palafox enough. Dalton Young Films & Photography has had the pleasure of covering events at this fabulous wedding venue, and we’re sure you’ll love it too.
5Eleven Palafox is in the heart of Downtown Pensacola, an area famous for its rich heritage – it was America’s first settlement. The symbolism is quite charming, offering a blend of history and romance, what better place to open a new chapter? The building was originally built in 1896 and has been specially designed to host up to 200 people inside and outside.
The neighborhood is known for its laid-back atmosphere, fine dining, vibrant arts and culture scene, and historical architectural styles.
5Eleven Palafox is what’s known as a “raw event space” – it doesn’t have any permanent decor. It is also decorated in a neutral color palette, so you have a lot of creative freedom in terms of how you want to design and style your wedding. Past brides also love the historic feel of the indoor space – its exposed brick walls provide an elegant atmosphere, perfect for a luxury event.
It’s a full-service venue, so you won’t have to worry about bar services and catering or table and chair rentals. They’re also flexible and allow you to take on vendors of your choice!
They have a reception area, and their indoor space has glamorous high ceilings and large windows that provide stunning views of Downtown Pensacola and allow a good amount of natural light to brighten the room. They also have four fully equipped bathrooms, Wi-Fi, and AV for your entertainment set-up. Caterers can work on-site as they have a kitchen; however, only approved caterers can use this amenity. They’ve curated a list of preferred caterers, so you’re in safe hands.
Their outdoor space is a beautiful covered courtyard, great for sun protection (2/3rds of Pensacola days are sunny). The courtyard has pleasant scenery: benches, lush greenery, and a large shade tree for incredible outdoor shots. They also have a large lawn which is perfect for luxury tented events.
Although 5Eleven Palafox does not have accommodation on site, it does have a pretty impressive bridal loft. The bridal suite has full-size mirrors, two bathrooms, cozy lounge seats, and a kitchenette; the space comes at no extra cost and is part of your booking. The loft is decorated in pastels and pale rose tints, very spacious and luxurious, making it perfect for preparations and convenient for touch-ups between events. You and your bridesmaids will surely appreciate the convenience. Former brides love the suite and say it’s a beautiful place to start your morning!
5Eleven Palafox has very responsive staff that will help you through the planning process and will gladly show you around the venue. They also offer Bridal Shower and Engagement Party Packages.
Your guests will love the venue, too, as it has private parking; it is also handicap accessible, so you are assured your event is inclusive. Their pricing is all-inclusive and will save you time and money; you can use the venue for your ceremony and reception, perhaps choosing to be indoors for one event and outdoors for the next!
