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

The best venue for the best day!
We booked Company 251 two weeks after we got engaged. I had actually found the venue on Instagram prior to us getting engaged and instantly fell in love and knew one day that it was where I wanted to get married. From the start, the experience was incredible. One of the owners, Matt, actually gave us our first tour. He was so knowledgeable and we knew we had to have the venue for our big day! We had about a year and a half engagement, and even months and months out, when I had random questions, everyone was so attentive. We started working with Emily, the Event Manager, and Christine, the Catering Manager around 10-11 months out to start nailing down details and I was so blown away by their support and how comfortable they made me feel - no question was left unanswered. When our day finally approached, Emily was incredible helping with our rehearsal and walking me through everything - she even allowed us to come in a few months before our day so that I could walk through and get a good vision for what I wanted. I had a few ideas they hadn't done before, and Emily made it happen regardless! On our wedding day, I didn't need or want for anything, Emily was there every step of the way working with my vendors, ensuring the timeline went accordingly etc. I felt so confident in every detail going on behind the scenes. The wait staff was equally as incredible. Every person said that it was the best meal they had had at a wedding ever! Overall, I would highly recommend anyone who wants a truly unforgettable experience from start to finish, to go with Company 251.Sent on 11/01/2019

We couldn't of asked for a better venue + staff to make our day complete. Our guests RAVED about the food, the space and overall ease of the day. Emily was so supportive, easy to communicate with and had the best suggestions when we needed some guidance. The responsiveness during planning months is second to none and the staff are so friendly to ensure all guests feel taken care of. We wouldn't change a single thing from our wedding day at Company 251!Sent on 01/18/2020
