Above and Beyond for the Perfect Wedding
My Fiance and I were adamant about not breaking the bank with our wedding. When we found Assemblea we knew immediately that this was the right space for us. The team were incredibly flexible especially considering how much of our wedding was DIY. The staff let us rent the space for a few hours the night before to load a bunch of stuff in and decorate with our family. A few examples of how above and beyond Assembea went.Sent on 04/19/2019
- They let our dog Turnip come to the ceremony and hang out into the evenging.
- We stapled fabric and lights to the wall behind the altar, and dried flowers all along one of the walls.
- No approved catering list meant that we could pick anyone we wanted to cater. We landed on Smoque BBQ, who also did a wonderful job.
The day of the ceremony was of course semi-chaotic, but the staff and our hired staff made sure my wife and I didn't have to stress out.
I can not say enough how happy we were to pick Assemblea. Thanks!
Assemblea's reply:Thank you so much, George and Emily! I'm so glad that you chose Assemblea for your beautiful wedding. It was a lot of fun to see your vision come to life in the space. All the best on your journey together!

Assemblea Was Wonderful!
My husband and I rented this venue for our wedding and it was absolutely amazing!!! The venue has a beautiful open layout, the natural lighting is perfect and the venue manager/director, Kahrin, is great to work with. Kahrin was responded quickly to emails, was helpful and made sure that we had a memorable night. I'm so glad I chose this venue, it was more than I could have imagined!Sent on 07/17/2019
