    Fantastic venue and coordinator!

    The Foundry Art Center met all of my expectations and more! I had wanted to get married here for years so it was a dream come true! Paige was exceptional to work with, always pleasant and kind, very flecible and wanted to make sure the space was up to my expectations. She was always available whenever I had any sort of question and went above and beyond to make our day special I would hands down recommend having a wedding here or any other sort of gathering!

    Flexible Vendor

    I looked into several venues for my wedding day and ultimately chose the Foundry Art Centre because of their flexibility. I was looking for a space big enough to easily accommodate 200 guests, allowed me to bring in my own catering, and provided a unique space that could host the ceremony and reception with enough space to flip the room without making guests feel uncomfortable. There was some turnover from when we booked the venue before the big day, which at first made me nervous but ultimately ended up being a blessing. Paige was so helpful, every question I posed to her or weird request she had an idea or a solution. She even let us borrow a bench from her office for our photos with Santa photo booth. They had a few issues with staffing the day of but Paige worked hard to make sure the effects weren’t felt by guests. I would highly recommend the Foundry Art Centre if you would like to have more of a DIY wedding in terms of decor and vendors.

    Beautiful Venue!

    We had our wedding at The Foundry Art Centre on Saturday 7/25. Let me just start by saying Melanie is absolutely AMAZING!! She was so easy to work with and was available to answer any and all questions I had. As a COVID bride dealing with restrictions changing daily, Melanie always made sure to touch base and update me with the latest information. I couldn't thank her enough for making our special day ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! The Foundry is a perfect venue for any event and the space can be transformed into anything you imagine. I am so happy with how everything turned out, it was absolutely beautiful and will be a day we will never forget. Thank you to Melanie and The Foundry team for making our special day so PERFECT.

    Foundry Art Centre's reply:

    Thank you Ashley. It was our pleasure to make your day wonderful. And you were a joy to work with. I wish you the absolute best. Lots of love and happiness as you begin your lives together.
