Beautiful, peaceful, intimate venue with wonderful vendor service

Blockhouse is an incredible venue, and the staff at Cast + Co were incredibly helpful and easy to work with right from the beginning. Booking was easy, what was included and what could be added was straightforward and transparent. Great additional vendor recommendations. Quick to respond to all emails!

Gorgeous venue!

Gorgeous venue! The greenhouse with the plants and flowers looked beautiful on our wedding day! I loved how reasonable the space was. The nursery has a roof and collapsable walls if it’s too hot, and you can rent heaters if it’s too cold. The Blockhouse space also has a roof, heaters, and plenty of room for a decent dance floor. The inside space is very roomy. We rented the plant wall to fill out the area behind our ceremony. We also paid for the extra hour before our event for family photos. All in all a very reasonably priced venue. Everyone thought it was beautiful, and I agree.

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!
