Stunning venue and wonderful staff

We loved our wedding Steeple Square! It is an absolutely stunning venue and Melanie was wonderful to work with. She answered all of our many questions promptly and ensured the day went smoothly, including touching base with the vendors to make sure everyone was on the same page. We were able to host both our ceremony and reception in the space and wouldn鈥檛 have done it any other way. It was a magical night and we received many comments about how beautiful and unique of a venue it was. Highly recommend!

The Best Venue Ever

Steeple Square was the perfect place for us to hold our wedding reception. The space is so beautiful that we didn't have to do much decorating, and Melanie was so helpful, it made planning and the day itself go so smoothly. I think the comment we've gotten the most since our wedding has been about how beautiful the venue was, so I definitely recommend having your wedding/party/event at Steeple Square! Don't even look at other places because it has it all.

What an amazing day!

This venue is gorgeous and Melanie was great to work with! Covid impacted our planning (had to move our ceremony venue) and Melanie jumped right in to go the extra mile to make sure this venue change would work for us! Our families loved the classic church feel, with it still being a nondenominational venue. Great for anyone who wants classic and traditional, with some modern twists and contemporary esthetic.

Hello! I work with all our couples at Steeple Square to coordinate the details of their wedding and I am also onsite the day of their wedding to ensure everything runs smoothly. What I enjoy most about my line of work is that I get to see couples on their happiest day of their lives and know that I helped execute their plans. I have more than 5 years of professional event planning experience, but I've been event planning my whole life! I hope you say "I do" to Steeple Square, because I'd be honored to work with you!
