    Amazing city venue! Wonderful staff!

    I am so happy we went with Filament for our wedding reception! The beauty and charm of the venue speaks for itself. Abby, Kendrick, and their team went above and beyond to help us with planning and ensuring everything ran smoothly – especially after rescheduling because of covid. They are so friendly, supportive, and hardworking. It made me feel at ease and free to enjoy myself without worrying about little details slipping through the cracks throughout the night. I highly recommend Filament!

    Amazing Venue!

    Working with Filament (and in particular, Matt Basteyns and Zach Kinsman) we had an excellent experience. They were very accommodating, kind, patient, and quick to reply to us. Our wedding day was seamless and smooth. Matt worked so hard to be available and all of our wedding party noticed how helpful he was to us. Zach (DJ) was a blast and we got so many compliments from guests on the music, party, and venue! We cannot recommend Filament enough. The venue was beautiful and so many of our guests commented on how much they loved it.

    Perfect Day

    There will not be enough character allowance in this review to express how amazing Filament and its staff are. Tyler was our point person and I cannot say enough kind words. He answered every question and handled every last minute detail. My husband and I are not from the area and booked Filament without ever seeing it in person. Tyler was more than willing to accommodate our schedules and have us at the venue and get a feel for the space.

    The space itself is gorgeous. Exposed brick and beams with tons of natural light give Filament charm. The in house sound system and uplighting ensure your party will be dancing ready.

    I had several guests comment on how friendly the staff was. They were attentive, smiling, and overall felt like they were part of the guest list.

    In the words of my guests "From here on out every other wedding will just be a let down".
