Really Special Venue + Amazing Food!
We started with Julie, who, sad for us, left in the earlier stages of planning. After a Covid postponement, Kevi and Joe picked up where Julie left off and were so wonderful to work with, addressing every single last email/phone question we had. They were knowledgeable (I'm pretty sure Joe knew more than I did re: some of the details of a Jewish wedding) and dedicated to making our wedding day seamless. We also had some last-minute Covid cancellations and they were super understanding and accommodating.
What's also so special about this venue is the food! IT. IS. SO. GOOD. From the tasting to the wedding day, which is rare for wedding food! The presentation of each and every bit was pristine as was the flavor. Guests raved about their meals, which, again, is quite rare at a wedding when serving a large group!
Great space. Great food. Great people. 11/10!
Unique and beautiful space with fantastic food and paralleled service
