So far, so good!
Alison is so great at answering any questions I have. Being from out of town, she has given me so many referrals, answered late night emails/texts, and been above and beyond what I expected as a vendor. I'm getting married August 2020 and am so excited to continue working with her!Sent on 09/23/2019

The Perfect Venue, Especially if you want to go Classy
It took us forever to find a venue, because we needed an affordable indoor venue for ceremony and reception for a winter wedding, and were very strongly against anything remotely rustic. Then I stumbled across TCOM. An old church building, exposed brick, arched windows, lots of space, lots of options for lighting and layout...I almost didn't want to hope too much until we saw it in person because it seemed so perfect. And then we saw it in person, and pretty much immediately it was like, "Yep. This is it. This is where we're getting married." It was the perfect setting for an art deco wedding for someone who can't afford to go all out and rent the Read House! Between TCOM's decor closet and decorations from Decor 1601 we were able to bring our vision to life, creating a sort of 1920's classy speakeasy feel. The folks at TCOM were wonderful to work with. They were very accomodating, allowing us to come tour on a Saturday instead of their usual weekday because we were coming from Nashville. They let me come in a couple times in the months approaching the wedding to take some pictures and go through the decor closet to begin putting together centerpiece ideas. We didn't have any flowers or greenery at our wedding. All the big decor was taken care of by Decor 1601, and the small decor, including all our centerpieces and the gold chargers (basically everything on our tables except for linens, plates etc, and table number cards and stands) came from the Decor Closet. It's magical in there. Definitely worth the (very very small) extra cost to have access to it.Sent on 10/28/2020
They worked with us, our caterers, and our planner to figure out and perfect a layout that worked for us. We had our ceremony in the main room, with round tables for the reception off to the side, and then guests had cocktail hour in the smaller area (B room) while the main area was flipped: round tables pulled forward, head table set up, chairs moved, etc. Then it was opened for the reception. The whole event was beautiful, and I'm so glad we went with them for our venue. They already have very reasonable pricing for their peak months, but I was getting married off-season, and so got excellent pricing and so was able to rent the space for the saturday of my wedding (Feb. 29, 2020) as well as all of Friday (starting at 10am), so we were able to have the rehearsal in the actual space, and do all of the decorating and set up on Friday so there was less for the wedding party to worry about on the actual wedding day, and so the caterers and others who had set up to do the day of were able to do that without us being in their way.
They only thing I can really warn about is that the size of the bridal suite makes it unideal for getting ready if you have even a modest bridal party. My bridesmaids and I got hair and makeup done at our hotel and then got dressed in the bridal suite at TCOM. If you have a small bridal party there is a place set up to do hair and makeup, but the room isn't very big so it could easily get crowded. It is beautiful though, and great for those final getting ready photos. It's also a good size for the bride and bridesmaids to hide away prior to the wedding, and we all felt pretty safe leaving our stuff there during the wedding.
It's just a beautiful venue that can be dressed up (as we did), or down for those who want a more rustic or shabby chic wedding feel. There is a lot to be said for a space with a lot of versatility. And the owners are great people with whom I had many delightful conversations about our cats. They were super helpful every step of the way and had a ton of advice. I definitely recommend them.
