    The best decision we made for our wedding

    My husband and I had our wedding at Iron Gate in April of this year (2019) and it was the single best planning decision I made. This is equally because of what a great experience it was with Iron Gate as a venue, and also because the team there referred me to pretty much all of my other vendors (who were wonderful). So many of my guests complimented me on the space (gorgeous and charming and special), the staff (geez, all so great and warm), the food (get the sliders), and generally just the energy of Iron Gate. My experience with Dawn and Sarah during planning was also wonderful, and they were incredibly patient with me during the entire process. Honestly, not a single negative thing to say. Thank you, Iron Gate!

    We can't say enough about the staff that helped us execute the wedding dinner for our client. It was a rainy night but the Garden Patio still worked for our group. Sarah and Emily and the team that night got us through it - can't say enough about the way we were taken care of, the amazing meal or the quality of service. THANK YOU! - Jessica Badger & Lauren Black, Black Badger Event Owners
