proposal with a small family gathering

I'm helping my brother plan a marriage proposal. We're looking for a private space to host a small family gathering. Is your space available on this date? We would be interested in a combination of both studio A and B, as he will propose on the rooftop and we'll celebrate inside. Any information you can provide would be helpful.
