    Unique, Romantic, and Industrial

    171 Genesee Team, Martin and Schmidt Family,

    Jimmy and I thank you so much for helping to plan and orchestrate our wedding day! We fell in love with the unique space at first site two winters ago as we started the wedding planning process! Utica is a hometown that Jimmy and I share together since we bought our home in 2015, so it was important that our venue was local and encompassed our life together!

    The venue easily speaks for itself! It’s beautiful historical features, one of the oldest operating Otis elevator in the country, exposed brick, and unprecedented views of downtown Utica from the floor to ceiling windows! It was also important that we surrounded our wedding planning process with local friends, family and businesses that we trust! The Martin’s and Schmidt’s are just that!

    Our breath was taken away when we saw everything come together! Christine and family had beautiful decor options and pulled everything together seamlessly! From planning, to set up, to day of coordination, to clean up! The families of the 171 baby are top notch!

    The Gaffney’s thank you for kickstarting our married journey off in a beautiful way!

    Picture Perfect Venue

    My husband and I had a hard time deciding on a wedding venue until we found 171 Events. The second we walked into the building and met Chris, we knew it was the perfect venue for our wedding...every corner of the building has charm and beauty!! Chris was hands on throughout the entire planning process, always lending suggestions/ideas, and quick at communicating. Our wedding day was beyond perfect and far surpassed our expectations. It's been three weeks since our day and people keep commenting on the beautiful venue and all the details we planned with Chris. 171 Events is the perfect venue!! Thank you, Chris and your wonderful team!! xoxo Emily and Paul
