    Amazing venue with Awesome service!

    I worked with Chris who was absolutely amazing down to the very last minute! He literally helped my vision come to life. He always made sure I met my deadlines and answered any of my 1000 questions. He was there for me when I was frantic and helped ease my worries. He worked greatly with a few new vendors I brought his way and made them feel welcome and made sure they had what they needed. Thank you Chris for making our wedding day not only look amazing but run with ease!! ❤️🙌🏼 I would highly recommend working with Chris at Events at Refinery to all the future bride and grooms out there.

    Amazing experience

    Our daughter had her wedding reception here and every minute of that evening exceeded our expectations. I think that the main reason for the exceptional event was due to Chris. He was absolutely amazing and anticipated every need. He answered all our questions efficiently and kept our stress level low. We were a COVID reschedule so it seemed like we would never get to have our event but when it finally did happen we couldn't have been more pleased.
