    Cork Factory - Our Wedding

    From the moment we started working with the Cork Factory staff, I knew our wedding was going to be fantastic. The Cork Factory itself is a stunning venue. It's romantic, has a historical and industrial feeling to it, and it can fit a fairly high amount of people (we had 175 guests). Most of our guests stayed at the hotel and loved the room style and amenities it offered. The Cork Factory offers a wedding coordinator, which was one of the biggest perks for someone planning their own wedding like we did. We primarily worked with Lauren, and she was my go-to gal for all things leading up to and throughout the course of our wedding weekend. Although I was pretty organized, when we arrived, I met with Lauren and was honestly frazzled by my own accord. She was literally the only person that made me feel better. I was planning to set up some of the decor myself and she insisted that I go relax and spend time with friends and family. I knew our wedding and all details were in good hands all thanks to her. I could not thank her more for her support, organization, and patience in working with us leading up to our big day and highly recommend her for anyone who is considering their wedding at the Cork Factory. One of our favorite parts of the wedding planning process was the food tasting the wedding coordination team offers. We brought our parents along, and had a fantastic time. There are a variety of options to choose from to accommodate all guests. All I'm going to say is, go with the oatmeal cookie cream pies!! Sincerely, thank you to Lauren and the Cork Factory for everything they did to make our day possible. It was everything we could have dreamed of.

    There is truly no better venue

    If I could give the Cork Factory 100 stars, I would. I know that most people only read the first couple sentences of reviews so I'll just list the my two favorite things about booking my wedding with the Cork Factory: convenience and all-inclusive. The wedding packages come with a coordinator, which is ABSOLUTELY something you want for your big day. The coordinator we were originally assigned actually left the hotel about 6 months before our wedding and the transition to the new coordinator was seamless. Jennifer didn't skip a beat. Also, she was so nice and so helpful and answered every single one of my emails within a day or two (shoutout to Jennifer, you're the best!!). Both were amazing but Jennifer truly went above and beyond to make our day perfect. The wedding packages also include a cake and a hotel room for you and your new spouse on the night of the wedding and you can have your rehearsal there as well (at no additional charge) and they have these amazing bridal suites that you can rent for an additional charge (worth it, in my opinion). I could just go on and on. YOU WILL NOT FIND A BETTER VENUE THAN THE CORK FACTORY. I didn't have to worry about decorating or meeting vendors or making sure things were moving along and the staff took care of everything, including switching over the rooms and taking down AND packing up our decorations at the end of the night. The Cork Factory is also incredibly organized and has a great process in place for food tasting, meetings, cake tasting, you name it. It made planning a breeze The hotel is in the same complex so you don't have to pay $2000 for transportation too! That was a big upside for us. Guests loved that everything was in one place. The staff was also incredibly friendly. Not to mention, the venue is truly stunning. The brick is modern and industrial yet still has the historic feeling. Each event space (Warehouse, Assembly Room, Parlor, Terrace, Ballroom) are beautiful and unique. This is not your average hotel. Just one more thing, most wedding food is trash but the Cork Factory legit had the best food I've ever had at a wedding. When I tell you i PRIORITIZED eating on my wedding day because i knew how good the food was lol. I could really go on and on and on but I will sum it up to this: the Cork Factory has amazing packages that are affordable and include everything you could possibly want and are very customizable. Every single person that we worked with was friendly and helpful. We had the best experience and I am so happy we chose the Cork Factory.

    The best!!!

    We had our daughters wedding at the Cork Factory: the best! My daughter and her new husband were thrilled with their wedding. Everything was perfect; the food, service, Jennifer our wedding planner and the hotel. If I could I would give it more than 5 stars.

Everytime we have had the pleasure of woking with the Cork Factory...it had been a distinctive and unforgettable experience.
