Northern Stacks Events is AMAZING!
I wish I could give Jesse/Northern Stacks Events more than 5 stars! We originally planned our wedding at a different venue. In light of COVID-19, we were in a tough situation. My husband and I knew from the start of the pandemic we didn’t want to wait another year to get married, so we quickly found an alternative. We found Northern Stacks Events online and within a week ended up changing our venue to be more accommodating with restrictions/be able to still proceed with geting married on our original date!Sent on 08/28/2020
This ended up being the perfect venue for our wedding and more! We had our ceremony and reception both take place there. The space is beautiful during the day and night!
Like I mentioned before - Jesse (the owner) is amazing and helped throughout the whole planning process and answered all the questions I had until the day of. Trust me, after switching venues, I had a lot of questions, and he emailed/texted them back and forth always in a timely matter. He was very professional, nice, and easy to talk to. We didn't hire a day of wedding coordinator, so Jesse stepped in and took place of that as well to make sure the day of my wedding went smoothly, and it did!
The day of my wedding could not have been more perfect. Jesse and his staff took great care of us. Right after the ceremony, they made sure we had some food and drinks before the reception started. My husband and I had the best day of our lives, and we got so much great feedback from our guests. Some even said it was the best wedding they’ve been to!
Just want to say a big thank you to Northern Stacks Event (especially Jesse and the staff) for making our wedding perfect. I recommend checking out Northern Stacks Events for weddings or even parties! They are amazing!

A hidden gem
I’m SO thankful we found Northern Stacks Events for our wedding. We originally planned to have our wedding at a different venue but decided to switch gears to Northern Stacks two months before our big day. Jesse and Kim are so easy going, yet organized and helpful. They are quick to respond with answers to any questions or concerns during the planning process.
The space is absolutely stunning and they give you the freedom to make it your own. We really valued the super convenient parking as well as the ability to utilize both indoor and outdoor space. Our guests were blown away, many said it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to!Sent on 09/29/2020
Northern Stacks Events's reply:Thank you Jamie! It was great to work with you, Erik, and your family throughout the process. We loved your use of greenery throughout the space, it really stood out against the brick. I'm looking forward to seeing some of your photos. Congratulations on your new journey together and thank you for choosing us!
