    Beautiful venue is a great location

    We had a wonderful experience planning and hosting our wedding ceremony and reception at Old Met. Our main contact, Sarah, was extremely responsive, friendly, and professional throughout the entire planning process. She helped to minimize our stress throughout the process and shared great ideas with us based on her experiences working with other couples. We always felt like we were in good hands! The venue itself is beautiful and felt very true to us/our style. The venue was a great size for our guest list (approximately 60 guests); it provided plenty of space, yet still felt intimate. The space would also work well for a slightly larger guest list. The location is extremely convenient for guests with hotels and restaurants within walking distance on the downtown mall. We also loved the fact that our guests were able to experience the Downtown Mall and the heart of Cville. I highly recommend hosting your wedding or another special event at Old Met!

    Sarah at OMH was a pleasure to work with, super responsive, and was very helpful with any and all questions we had. The space is super versatile, gorgeous on it's own but easy to decorate to really wow, and is full of character. Our guests gave endless compliments about how much they loved the venue, and how unique the bar area downstairs is.

    I highly recommend hiring Steph Saunders at Old Met as your coordinator if you need one, she is an absolute pleasure to work with. She kept us calm for our big day, was very organized, and we couldn't have done it without her.
