Cider Gallery is such a beautiful venue. I had my wedding here in April 2021 and have nothing but praise for the location and also their events manager Jennifer!!! We first met Jennifer in 2019 before the pandemic hit when we put down our deposit. She let us tour the space and answered our questions. Cider Gallery is very experienced at hosting weddings and they had printed information prepared that is helpful for planning the wedding and to share with vendors.Sent on 05/01/2021
During the pandemic, Jennifer was very understanding and let us postpone the wedding date with no extra cost or other consequences. From start to finish, Jennifer was very kind and accommodating! It's clear that weddings are her passion as she is very knowledgeable in the topic, offering great advice when needed. The week before our wedding, Cider Gallery spruced up the courtyard in preparation of our outdoor ceremony, adding more sod, new plants in the planters, and extra pea gravel in the paved circle rock area.
Jennifer coordinated with our wedding planner as we approached our new wedding date, ensuring everything went smoothly, and provided info about decorating the space. She provided a detailed floor plan for the reception and even rented a sweethearts table for us. We rented our tables and chairs from Cider Gallery and also used them for our bar services with no trouble. They had detailed guidelines and precautions for COVID safety.
We were allowed into the venue for an hour during rehearsal on the day before. On the day of the wedding, they let us inside early in the morning for setup and gave us access to the space all day. The owner group also own the Bon Bon restaurant directly next door, and they allowed me to rest there with my family an hour before the ceremony.
On the wedding day, my grandmother was needing snacks for energy right before the ceremony, and Jennifer was so kind to provide some food from her personal stash. This small but meaningful thing is so appreciated!
Our guests had a great time at Cider Gallery. The wedding ceremony and reception were beautiful, and my husband and I are very happy.

Perfect for our small winter wedding!
Everything I could have imagined for our wedding would not have been right without the breathtaking backdrop that CG is. From the stone walls to the beautiful flooring - I cannot thank Jennifer enough for opening her gallery to events and allowing us to spend our evening there.Sent on 08/06/2020
