The Bindery Event Space is a historic wedding venue located in McMinnville, Oregon. The facility is part of the News-Register building downtown, and was the actual place where books were bound. It has recently been restored to a charming and unique mixed-use event venue that offers more than 3,000 square feet of entertainment space. The European aesthetic highlights the warehouse’s history, while also remaining modern enough to hold the wedding of your dreams. Owner Chelsey Nichol grew up as a part of her family’s newspaper business, and loved hiding among the rolls in the warehouse. Her first job was in circulation, and that newspaper was printed on the exact property where The Bindery Event Space is today. The cement floors, natural light, and open-beamed ceiling complement any aesthetic and will welcome your loved ones to have a great time. These details represent the true connection to Chelsey’s family business.

We hosted an incredible fundraising event at the Bindery. I believe it was the first event for the facility. The space was simple, yet beautiful - a perfect location for lots of candles! The best part of the simplicity is that it can be dressed up to be whatever you need it to be. I was initially worried about the acoustics, but it was fine. Working with Chelsey and her crew was so easy; the dinner came off without a hitch. I can't wait to use the Bindery again!Sent on 05/01/2018

We had to change venues at the last minute in McMinnville due to fire code limits and thank goodness the Bindery wasn't that well known yet. Chelsey was great to work with and didn't try to nickel and dime us at every turn - far from it. Everyone loved the venue - we used it for the rehearsal dinner & out of towners party night prior to the wedding - the high ceilings the rustic former atmosphere of the former newspaper printing plant. It stayed remarkably cool on an otherwise hot summer day. Easy space to create whatever chat, dining or stage areas you need. So convenient to almost any spot or hotel you might choose in McMinnville. Loved it!Sent on 08/22/2018
