I loved Terra and it looked amazing on the day of the wedding. Stacy and the Terra staff were amazing and helped make my day perfect! Anytime I had a question, no matter how small they always had timely responses and great input. It's unique space was perfect for our city wedding and wouldn't have changed a thing!Sent on 10/02/2013

The venue is absolutely fun and stunning. It was the best background for our modern/urban setting. Although it is a bit pricy including the bar service, they were flexible in customizing and personalizing packages for us. Although there were a few hiccups, it didn't discourage the flow of the event and guests still had an amazing time. Stacy and Zachary were so sweet and fun to plan with. I'd still visit the venue for other public events any day!!Sent on 08/08/2014

Terra is the spot for your wedding if you are looking for a cool empty space for you to create your vision. Technically, you can do whatever you want with this space. When I met with Dusty, I was really into it. I wanted to create everything from scratch and it was somewhat exciting and thrilling. It was my time to let my creative juices flow.Sent on 05/25/2014
I loved the space for the reception. Since it's a gallery, it has a really cool, industrial vibe to the space. I loved the glass windows, which draws a lot of light through. When the sun does down, you see a beautiful cityscape. This was definitely the feel I wanted for the reception.
The main hesitation I had was the ceremony part of the wedding. Although I was able to create my ceremony, I just didn't get a "traditional" feel out of it. I just didn't feel like I was "walking down an aisle". I was literally walking down the gallery. I just couldn't get that mindset out of my head.
In terms of pricing, it sounds reasonable (around $5K), but once you add on all the fees, (bartender, staff, event manager and etc..).. it total to almost $8K and don't forget all the decorating you have to do! Terra does provide the alcohol service and it's pretty reasonable, so that is somewhat the off set. Also, a really good perk they do offer is NO corkage fee.
In the end, Terra just wasn't the right venue for the style we were going for...
