Beautiful venue with a fantastic staff!
Company 251 is incredible! We were fortunate enough to be able to have our wedding there. The staff is so kind, respectful, accomodating and understanding. We unfortunately had to postpone our May wedding and moved it to August. Emily & Rachel made this chaotic and difficult time one hundred times easier on us. We could not have worked with a better team. Truly outstanding! The venue itself is stunning and the food is delicious. Our big day went on without a hitch. Not only did we have the best time ever, but all our guests truly enjoyed our wedding too. We are very happy we were able to have our wedding with Company 251!! We would recommend them to anyone who is getting married!Sent on 10/08/2020

A One-Stop-Shop Dream Wedding Venue!
This venue is the complete package. Not only is the venue unique, modern, rustic, minimal, and breath-taking - but their catering company, Moveable Feast Co., is some of the best tasting food I have ever had. One of our biggest compliments from our guests was how unique the venue was and the food! Company 251 made our lives so easy this past year and worked with all of our vendors to make our day run as smooth as possible. Emily and Chrissy were incredible to work with throughout the planning process! It was the best day of our lives and we are forever grateful to have found this gem. It is pure magic.Sent on 10/08/2019

Coronavirus Wedding Gone PERFECT!
We had our ceremony and reception at Company 251 in August of 2020. We originally had a destination wedding planned but due to coronavirus it was canceled in May. We only ever wanted to get married on the beach. So, making the choice to replan was difficult at first but, we weren’t going to let a pandemic ruin our plan to get married! Once we found Company 251 and our date became available in late May we couldn’t have felt luckier. At the end of June we finally got the all clear that we could send out our 50 invites.Sent on 10/19/2020
We planned and had our wedding in 10 weeks. We are the smallest wedding Company 251 has ever had and we were the first wedding since pre-coronavirus. Emily and the owners were extremity accommodating to our needs and provided us with an unbelievable experience that we will never forget. They went above and beyond to keep us and our guests safe. Every penny spent shows its value at Company 251. Emily is incredibly professional, helpful, accommodating and kind. The food and service is beyond INCREDIBLE. The venue is picturesque, there is no other way to describe it.
Needless to say our destination wedding being canceled was a blessing in disguise. Our wedding at Company 251 was beyond the we would had ever hoped for and we couldn’t be happier.
We highly recommend Company 251 for any event. You will not regret it!
