I can’t recommend the Mavris enough! Our guests had an amazing time at our wedding and so many people have complimented the team at Mavris. They are all incredibly professional and hospitable. We worked with Olivia for about a year and we were constantly impressed. She is so good at her job and has a wonderful personality! On our wedding day, she made sure that everything went off without a hitch, so we could truly enjoy the day and spend time with our guests.Sent on 11/01/2020
We booked the venue before COVID-19 and then had to make many adjustments, but their team was flexible and accommodating as much as possible. The space is beautiful and is perfect for social distancing. Everyone enjoyed the night safely and no one got sick from our wedding. We also lost our DJ due to COVID, but were able to use the venue’s sound system and microphones for music and toasts. They honored my requests to use different sizes of tables for the reception to seat guests only with their household and space out everything. Their food service is well thought out. Dinner plates are served with covers, condiments are in individual servings for each guest, and all employees wear masks and change gloves frequently. The food is also amazing and the chef even makes his own gluten-free bread. That is unheard of!
You should feel confident booking your event at Mavris. You will be in good hands and love the experience!

Mavris has been exceptional so far! We decided to book this venue bc it has amazing views of the city in their outdoor spaces as well as very cool industrial chic indoor spaces! The wood, brick, and piping is all gorgeous. The individuals we have worked with have been quick with correspondence and so incredibly helpful in all of our planning and many questions. Would definitely recommend!Sent on 04/08/2019
