    First thing we booked

    We knew that we wanted to book Blockhouse as our wedding venue very soon after we got engaged. We did not even end up touring any other venues because we felt like Blockhouse was so perfect! It had everything we wanted and was the perfect little garden oasis in the middle of an urban environment--and only a few blocks from our apartment! Blockhouse did not disappoint--we had the most magical evening there for our wedding and everything there was even more perfect than we could have imagined! We received many compliments throughout the night (and in the days following) about how we chose such a wonderful venue. Could not recommend Blockhouse enough and literally could not imagine getting married anywhere else!

    Covid wedding

    I am so grateful, like many of our other vendors Blockhouse stuck with us through all the changes we had to make due to covid. On the day of the wedding we had someone there the whole time helping us with anything we needed and answering questions. The space is beautiful and perfect for a small gathering which is what we had! We are very thankful and highly recommend this space!

    Amazing intimate wedding venue

    If you have a wedding under 100 guests, look no further than this venue. We recently tied the knot in early October with 70 people on our guest list and it was absolute perfection. Each and every one of my guests commented on how perfect it was. Blockhouse was the only venue we looked at - we knew the moment we walked in that it was the space. After booking, Emily and her team were impeccable. From helping bring the vision to life to day-of - everything was flawless. Huge thank you to this team for all of their hard work and wonderful customer service. Seriously, if you want a romantic venue and you have a smaller guest list, book this place!
