Great Location & Incredibly Helpful Staff

Foundry Art Centre is an absolutely gorgeous location to host a wedding. The space is open and while we felt comfortable with ~100 guests, it could have easily accommodated far more. The venue includes a self-playing piano, which we loaded with songs from Les Miserables as guests were arriving. During the cocktail hour, guests can roam the art galleries, which was an incredible bonus coming from a family of artists and musicians. Moreso than the specifics of the venue, the team (and particularly Paige Jenkins) are incredibly helpful, professional, and kind. They had prompt responses to all our questions and were able to accommodate requests we had. We also had a day-of coordinator who was able to help get the groomsmen & I get the venue setup. All in all, the wedding was a fantastic success thanks to the help from Paige & her team!

Just what we needed!

We wanted a relaxing, stress free build up to the wedding and Paige provided just that. The Foundry was able to address all our needs in terms of space and our non-traditional order of events. We would highly recommend this venue!

Amazing experience

I loved the foundry from the first visit we had with Paige. She helped answer all our questions and made our big day run smoothly. It is gorgeous and I’m so happy with how it all came together!
