Amazing Romantic-Industrial Venue
I had my wedding reception at Founders ONE | NINE on January 30, 2021. To say my new husband and I had a five star experience is an understatement.
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!Sent on 02/12/2021

My reception was perfect!
I recently had my wedding reception at Founders One Nine and it one of the best choices I could have made for our big day. From the initial consultation all the way until the big day, Christine and the Founders team made sure that every detail was perfect along the way. Christine helped to make our bar and menu options through their caterer (Catering Creations), unique and special to me and my husband. Christine was quick to answering all my random questions, making sure the layout was perfect for us, and even providing such much needed insight on what works well with the space. I cannot stress enough how easy it was to work with Founders and Catering Creations. If you're looking for a venue for a wedding reception or just an event, you need to meet with Founders!Sent on 10/03/2019
