    To be fair, I didn’t think you were having a courthouse wedding with the location being listed as “The Old Courthouse.”  It sounded like a restaurant to me.

    Seems clear to me.  You can add a details section with more info on the venue and dress code.  This wouldn’t happen to be the courthouse in Crowne Point, would it?  I’m from NWI and went to a wedding reception there once and it was beautiful!!!  Best wishes!

    You could always add “the historic old courthouse” to emphasize it isn’t a current courthouse.

    I would leave out the second floor part and word it something like this:


    Our traditional ceremony will take place at the historical Old Courthouse in downtown City. A cocktail hour and reception will follow in the restored ballroom (or another word to describe it).

    I also think it helps that you have noted that you’ll be having your cocktail and reception there as well. I think it is pretty clear.
