LGBTQ+ Welcome and

My wife and I are so glad we booked our wedding and reception at the Schoolhouse! It has a great set up for small to moderate sized wedding parties! The pay it forward closet is one of its most surprising features! We used many decorations, flowers, etc! It all worked so well together and helped us save money! Sarah and her staff are all so helpful and accommodating and they have an extensive list of vendors they have worked with that we used to create our best wedding day! They’re not “preferred” or “have to use” vendors - but ones that have been to the schoolhouse before - and the couples have been happy with. This allowed us to have the perfect day. Everyone worked perfectly together. Located close to I-196 and Chicago Drive it is a great location. We are so beyond happy this was our venue!

Amazing wedding!

We could not have asked for a more perfect venue! Sarah and her team were so easy to work with and very helpful with everything. The venue was beautiful and exactly what we wanted. The pay it forward closet was amazing!

October 2022 Wedding

We got married at this venue in October 2022. Sarah, the owner of the venue, was fantastic in assisting us with our organization and planning from the time of booking. She and her team helped tremendously by essentially being a day of coordinator and planner. They have lots of experience and know what works well with the space they have. They have a couple closets with a multitude of decorations that have been donated from previous brides that are free to use. Their bridal suite and grooms lounge worked perfect for day of getting ready. We had an outdoor ceremony with the best weather and beautiful set up. Sarah and her team went absolutely above and beyond to ensure all of our wishes were handled and well respected to give us the most perfect day we could have imagined.
