Amazing Romantic-Industrial Venue
Planning: My (now) husband and I got engaged six months before our intended wedding date. We chose Founders ONE | NINE as our reception venue because the space was big enough (we were planning on a 400 guest list); it is a romantic, industrial style; and it fit our budget. It also has a separate bridal room, which experience has told me is imperative. However, the biggest reason was the staff. Summer, the event producer, was incredibly kind, but also the kind of person you know will get things done. So, the space and the staff were perfect!
Planning my wedding was a roller coaster, to say the least. The pandemic was still raging and regulations/calls for safety were constantly shifting. However, Founders ONE | NINE knew this was a difficult time, and promised to work with me and make sure my big day was special, even if only 12 people could come (this would fall way below the minimum price, which they waived for the pandemic).
Summer and the Catering staff kept in contact with me throughout the entire planning process. They helped me find venders, had recommendations for decor, invited me to several INCREDIBLE tasting nights (the food is insane here), and met with me as many times as I needed. Working with this venue was the fun part of wedding planning!
The Week Before: I was my own event planner. Nothing could prepare me for the barrage of necessities I had to complete the week before. Summer told me to let her handle things. I would literally just give my vendors' Summer's cell phone number and she coordinated everything. Flowers, decorations, the lighting, the DJ, my cake... it was all coordinated to arrive and set up in the venue by Summer and the Founders One I Nine staff.
The Big Day: It could not have been more perfect. My guests are still complimenting me on how much fun they had. The venue was gorgeous and everyone on staff made the night a blast. My photos are AMAZING (especially the ones Summer texted me the week after).
I highly recommend this place if you're getting married in Omaha!
Highly recommend Founders One Nine

Summer graduated with an Associate’s Degree from Kaplan University in Business, specializing in Event and Meeting Management. She previously managed a venue in Nebraska City for 4 years and owned an event planning and decorating business. She has many years working with couples to ensure their event is a success and perfect! Long before she chose this as a profession, she was doing weddings for friends and while serving in the Army she did weddings for many of her fellow soldiers.
When she is not working hard on an event, you can find her in the Kitchen trying anything our pastry chef makes! When at home she enjoys spending time with her husband of 16 years, their 2 children, ages 15 and 12, their 6 rescue cats or spending time outdoors.
