  • My husband and I were sure of this wedding venue eventually being ours even before we were joke. We walked by and saw another wedding one night and in that moment knew this was the place. The venue and area surrounding it is beautiful and unique. The space inside is so cool just as it is that you don't have to waste a ton on decorations to dress it up. The 2 floors, industrial components, market lights, etc. give the it such a warm, intimate and special feel. The packages are easy to chose from and the staff is AMAZING to work with. They are so professional and responsive. The food from Angus I've ever had at a wedding. This is not your typical reception food, people could not stop talking about it after our day. We knew right away this was the place and we were blown away by the service.
