My husband Alex and I cannot stop talking about how amazing our venue was. We got married last weekend and JX blew us away! Emily was SO great to work with every step of the way. Especially during these unprecedented times. Being a bride is stressful but planning a wedding during 2020 is even worse and Emily had so much patience with me and was flexible and supportive all while she and JX were figuring out this new world as well! Everything honestly was so seamless and everything came together so well. All of our guests and family were so impressed by how beautiful the venue was. We are so, so happy. JX was always a dream venue and we are SO happy we made the choice to have our wedding at JX. Thank you Emily and team!Sent on 09/30/2020
JX Event Venue's reply:Thank you so much for the kind words, Jillian! You two are so wonderful, and we wish you all the best!

Covid wedding dream
We moved our wedding in December from another one23 venue to the JX and we couldn't be happier with our decision. The venue is beautiful and the staff was fantastic to work with, they made everything super easy after rescheduling our wedding. Would highly recommend working with them.Sent on 04/28/2021

Would recommend to anyone!
We recently got married at the JX and it was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! What initially caught my eye about the space was how elegant it was without needing much decorating. We got so many compliments on the space from our guests!Sent on 05/05/2021
Not only was the space beautiful, but the JX team was awesome to work with! We got married during Covid and Emily did such a great job of rolling with the punches and easing all of our nerves. Because of their planning and attention to detail, the day went off without a hitch and we had a perfect day!
We would recommend the JX to anyone! They exceeded all of our expectations and made the planning process actually enjoyable!

As a wedding planner/coordinator, we LOVE working at the JX Venue! This is one of our favorite venues to work at. The venue is gorgeous and truly one of a kind. We are excited to be a preferred vendor with the JX Venue and One23 Events. We also recently helped Eliza at JX plan a styled shoot which turned out to be absolutely stunning! Eliza was great to work with as she was professional, friendly and stayed on top of the shoot and organized all of the vendors throughout the process. We can't wait to be back in September and December to work with the JX team again. Looking forward to working even more weddings and events there in the future! Highly recommend. xo, Melody (Events by Melody)
JX is the best venue. I don't know what else to say beyond that. It's the best actual venue, has the best staff, and is in the best location. If JX is available, your venue search should stop here. I'd book asap, because it's highly sought after. Highly, highly, highly recommended.
