    The Perfect Venue

    The first time I walked in to Phipps was just about a year ago, and the moment I stepped in (with my Fiancé at the time, now husband) I KNEW I wanted to get married there. This venue fit our personality and definitely went with our non-traditional view on weddings/ our desire for interesting venues. We felt like we could truly be ourselves, and our guests LOVED it.

    I have to give the most major props to our contact at Phipps, Caroline Walker. She was the most helpful person I've ever come in contact with (in pretty much my entire life) and made the planning process easy and fun. Even through small hiccups along the way, she did her best to make everything perfect and make sure that I was happy and comfortable. The planning process can get overwhelming for a bride/groom who are doing it themselves, but her help made everything possible and easy-going.

    We can't wait to go back and visit in the future, there are so many memories made on our wedding night with all of our family and friends in attendance. Thank you Phipps!

    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.
