    The Perfect Space!

    This was the most perfect venue, and the venue staff was incredible! We got married during COVID and used this space for our reception two years later. We couldn't have imagined a more perfect space. The venue is beautiful and our experience with the staff was all positive. Jesse (the venue owner) was extremely responsive to all questions and accommodating to exactly what we wanted our day to look like! The venue coordinator the day of made sure things went smoothly, and they absolutely did. I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for a 130-150 person wedding and reception!

    Northern Stacks Events's reply:

    Thank you so much Kelsey! We are glad you trusted us for your wedding reception. Continued blessings in your marriage.

    PERFECT wedding venue!

    We booked NSE early in the pandemic for our August 2021 wedding. Jesse willingly added a pandemic clause into our contract, in case we needed to cancel. Based on this extra step, we knew Jesse and NSE was going to work beautifully for our reception! We were able to hold our wedding reception as planned with nearly 150 people in attendance. The venue was exactly what we'd hoped. Historic, unique, accommodating, beautiful. Our guests raved about EVERYTHING: buffet, cookie bar with homemade cookies, barn wood tables, DJ and dance floor. Top marks to Jesse and Kim! Even months after our wedding, we still go to Forgotten Star, grab a beer and wandered next door to NSE and remember so fondly our special day. You will NOT be disappointed with this venue!

    Northern Stacks Events's reply:

    Thanks so much for the review Kara! Having gotten married during the pandemic myself, we know the uncertainty that it can bring to the planning process and are glad that we were able to help ease your mind through that. We pride ourselves on not just our flexibility, but trying to be as accommodating as possible and helpful throughout the entire process as well as the day of! Thank you again and we'll see you back at Forgotten Star for a craft beer soon!

    Fantastic new venue!

    Kim and Jesse are FANTASTIC. Jesse was our go-to man leading up to the big day and Kim served as a day-of coordinator. Everything about our wedding was absolutely seamless, which is exceptionally impressive for a new venue. I can't recommend Northern Stacks highly enough. Our guests loved spending time at the brewery and on the patio, too!

    Northern Stacks Events's reply:

    Thank you so much Ellie! It was truly a pleasure to work with you and all yours guests. Congratulations again!
