The perfect venue!

We absolutely LOVED working with Opal 28! From start to finish they were an absolute joy. They were a well-oiled machine with clear and consistent communication throughout the entire process. The staff were SO attentive and kind, there were no surprise fees, and everyone went beyond the call of duty.

Having an Opal 28 on-site coordinator (shoutout Ranessa) for the process and wedding day made planning a breeze. She made everything run so smoothly and we really felt that we had nothing to worry about. Even with the ever-changing Covid rules, she and the rest of the staff were always cool, calm, and collected.

Being able to have the music piped through the venue sound system gave us one less thing to worry about. That also goes for their on-site catering. A few months after the wedding we’re still having guests tell us how fantastic the food was, both cocktail hour appetizers and the plated dinner! (The goat cheese balls, lemonade-brined fried chicken, and avocado toast were fantastic cocktail appetizers. The salmon and carrots for dinner were also phenomenal).

Having the ability to bring in our own decorations and dessert made it so we could set our own budget and do whatever we wanted. They even kept our desserts in their fridge and helped us box up the leftovers.

Opal 28 also has apartments above the event space that we rented out. That made getting ready and having a place to stay really easy.

We cannot rave about Opal 28 enough!

This is the perfect intimate space

This event space is incredible. Everything was as advertised and better! They made everything happen. Very human team to work with! Everyone was so responsive with excellent communication and recommendations. I planned a wedding with them for 100 people remotely and it went perfectly. Thanks Kristi and Kara!

Opal 28 was the perfect venue for our intimate wedding. We had 9 people in total, and Opal 28 went above and beyond to make our Tuesday Elopement magical and absolute perfection! I would highly recommend Opal 28 to anyone looking for an amazing venue and people who are passionate about creating a beautiful wedding day! Thank you Opal 28!
