    Beautiful and Affordable Spot for Intimate Wedding

    We rented the Broderie room for 90 minutes for our intimate wedding ceremony. It was beautiful and affordable! Our coordinator Sahara was helpful and responsive. I really couldn't believe that one of the top wedding venues in the country could be within our small budget.

    Broderie Room - Ceremony Only

    Phipps was a phenomenal location to have our ceremony! It is absolutely beautiful all on it's own. Caroline, our coordinator, was wonderful to work with! She was so helpful and insightful and answered all of our endless questions.

    I have photographed many weddings in the past at The Phipps. The beauty of nature in the various rooms and the outdoor environment all make for a beautiful event. Rachel and staff offer weddings, receptions and special parties for your special needs; and the professionalism is nothing short of superb which is expected from a first class venue. This is a gorgeous venue for some remarkable photos which our studio has created over the years. -John Lokmer - Lokmer Photography Inc.
