The 9th Street Abbey was the perfect venue for us! It was stunning and Madeline was incredible to work with. She was beyond helpful, responsive, and accommodating. She made sure everything ran perfectly throughout the day and was more than on top of everything. I can’t recommend this venue enough!

The venue was stunning. The service was exceptional. Our guests raved about the garden patio for cocktail hour. I wouldn’t change a thing!

The Abbey is an incredibly beautiful place and a perfect choice if you are interested in having the ceremony and reception in the same location as we did for our 9/18 wedding. We did not have an outside wedding planner, but Patty Long's day-of planning staff are professional, knowledgeable and extremely organized. Our day of planner, Jenna, was able to coordinate the timeline, vendors arriving, wait staff and the overall flow of the event from start to finish.

Additionally, because the catering and the venue are tied together and there is a kitchen on-site, the food is very fresh and not at all like typical wedding food options. (Dry chicken, anyone?) They were able to work with us to create a custom brunch menu that our guests loved.

We received many compliments from our other VENDORS about how well-produced, beautifully and smoothly the entire event went. Our photographers were AMAZED at the natural morning daylight in the loft area (I highly recommend renting this as well as the venue for the bridal party to get ready in). The garden area, staircases, stained glass, and high arched ceiling create the perfect backdrop for top-notch photos. I would recommend 9th Street Abbey, or Patty Long's Catering, in general, to anyone without hesitation.
