High West, an excellent choice
I booked through High West just over a month away from our date because our original venue cancelled due to the pandemic. However, you would never know that we had to change plans to High West last minute with how amazing the staff is!!!! Melissa took such good care of me, keeping me calm, figuring out the logistics for our pandemic wedding, and just generally being a wonderful human! High West made our wedding absolutely amazing and gorgeous, our guests are still raving about the food (try the brussel sprouts if you get the chance!!!). They took huge pride in the details, such as creating a cocktail menu with our cats and giving great suggestions to find a little humor in our wedding favors. I would highly recommend them to anyone, especially for a pandemic wedding. They truly care about their brides and put their hearts into the event. High West deserves the highest praise!Sent on 11/09/2020

High West Distillery
We had our wedding at High West Distillery in Wanship at the end of August. The atmosphere, scenery, and overall experience was 10 out of 10. The service was very detailed from start to finish. Becky Gedmin, our wedding coordinator, was very professional and made our planning process flawless. The food and drinks were amazing. The venue played a huge part in our wedding, highly recommended!Sent on 04/10/2020

My Wedding Dream Come True
Once I saw a picture of this venue I was sold, then I spoke to Melissa, and any idea of getting married anywhere else stopped. This was the most amazing experience I've ever had both in planning and my wedding day. I didn't have a wedding planner, I had someone better, Mel who is head of the events at High West. High West is basically a one stop shop, the venue for ceremony and reception, food, drinks, seating tables, it's all taken care of. We added very minimal florals, and a band. That's it! Everyone that attended said it was the most beautiful and memorable wedding they've ever been to and I couldn't agree more. I am an event planner and I've never seen anything executed so flawlessly. The venue is breathtaking, absolutely breathtaking, the food is INSANE with generous portions and the drinks are incredible. I can't say enough about the whole experience, it still feels like a dream, and what's crazy about all of this is that it is extremely affordable! The best part for me was the opportunity to work with Mel. When planning a wedding in a little over a month during cover, I was worried, but Mel made it so easy to get everything done and exactly the way I wanted it. Whenever I had a request or question she made it happen.Sent on 11/02/2020
To any bride reading this, book High West for your wedding. I am very particular, I have grand ideas and I'm rarely ever wowed, but High West surpassed everything. Thank you to the incredible staff and most of all, thank you Mel, you are now a friend for life.
High West Distillery's reply:Madison - you were a dream to work with and your guests were so gracious. Covid had made so many things uncertain but you and Chris proved that love finds a way! We are honored to have been a part of your love story.
