Perfect in absolutely every way!

I could not have pictured a more perfect wedding day, and I owe so much of that to Matt B. (wedding coordinator with Filament) and the rest of the Filament team. They are absolutely phenomenal at their jobs. Matt went above and beyond as a day of coordinator - he was super easy to communicate with, assisted with many other areas of our wedding, provided such good advice, and overall was an extremely fun person to be around and help with on our wedding day. Words do not give nearly enough credit to the amount of effort and support he put in to making our wedding day absolutely perfect. Also, the venue is absolutely stunning, has so much charm and uniqueness you really do not need much decorations to make the space feel magical. Everything was top notch and I would recommend the Filament to any person looking for their special day.

Exceptional Venue, Top Notch Staff

When we walked into Filament we immediately fell in love. We had toured a number of venues previously and just didn’t get that “feeling”. When we met Sarah, she greeted us with joy and was very sincere with helping us build our vision for our wedding day. There was no doubt with the ambience of the venue that we wanted our wedding there, but adding Sarah to be our event coordinator brought everything together. She was so helpful and made us feel comfortable with the process. She was so open to our ideas and added her expertise so they were executed flawlessly. Sarah made this wedding planning experience stress free at Filament. She and the team were so accessible, and giving us suggestions with vendors such as Tall Guy and Grill and Feisty Flowers was amazing. Their team work on our big day was top notch. We can’t thank Sarah and the team at Filament enough for their hard work to make our wedding day exceptional. We highly recommend them!

Flawless Filament Experience

Sarah, Nick and the entire Filament team made our wedding (and all the days leading up to it!) absolutely amazing. Filament was the perfect setting for our ceremony and reception of 100 guests. The location is right in the city, but perfectly tucked away to create the warm, intimate cream city brick vibe we were going for. The venue is beautiful as-is, but Sarah made sure our glamorous disco decor was incorporated flawlessly. We wish we could plan a wedding with this incredible team every year - that's how great it was to work with them!
