Perfect Wedding Venue
I loved having my wedding at THE 101 - the space is spacious and stunning, and it was perfect for me since I planned my entire wedding. Having the vendor flexibility is so great, especially if you have a specific vision. The team was also so amazing to work with, both leading up to the day, and during the event. Sara and Gordon are a dream team.
We rented the space the day before the wedding, which was a game changer for set up and prep. If you have the budget to do this, I HIGHLY recommend it. Once we costed out the rehearsal dinner at nearby restaurants, it actually made more sense to rent THE 101 the day before to set up and host the rehearsal dinner.
Some things to be aware of: getting the venue at 10am on the day of the wedding means you may not be able to have a rehearsal the night before and load in/set up is very tight. Just something to note as you look. It was something we kind of thought more about later as we were trying to plan.
I would definitely recommend this venue and wish I could do my wedding all over again because it was so great.Sent on 10/01/2019

A beautiful experience and wedding at the 101
What an amazing venue and staff! We worked with Sara who was fabulous and extremely accommodating. The venue itself is gorgeous with beautiful light and we couldn't have been happier about choosing the 101 for our wedding. Gordon was the night manager for the day of the event and he was so helpful and easy to work with. We are SO happy that we were lucky enough to work with this venue!!Sent on 05/20/2019

PNWP Monthly Mingle Meeting
Recently we hosted a networking group meeting at The 101 and we had a 5 out of 5 stars experience! We worked with Grace and from start to finish she was pleasant, welcoming, responsive, and super professional. During our meeting she and her counterpart were great hosts and went above and beyond to help all our guests feel welcomed. Besides the friendliness of the staff, the venue it’s self can hold it’s on. The open space leaves so much room for creative expression. As a florist myself I was excited to see the exposed brick in one area, white wall in another, and big floor to ceiling windows in another! Lastly, they have a preferred vendor list of talented and reliable professionals who can meet all you wedding or special event needs. We recommend The 101 to anyone looking for the perfect venue for their intimate wedding or event!Sent on 02/08/2020
