    when we walked into the foundation event space, we knew this was the place for our ceremony + reception. jenna was AWESOME to work with--can't say enough great things about her. we went a la carte with the day-of coordination services and thank goodness--worth every penny to have jenna there helping with whatever came up and coordinating with the vendors. the space is gorgeous, but simple--exactly what we were looking for. we stuck with simple decorations and it was perfect bc the space with great uplighting from elite sounds entertainment speaks for itself. book the foundation and you won't regret it.

    We had our reception at The Foundation and it was perfect! Patrick was very easy to work with! The space was exactly what we were looking for: older, rustic, large, open to outside catering/liqour, and a unique location.
