    Perfect wedding at The Foundry

    Had our wedding at the Foundry, and it was AMAZING. We rented out both rooms and had both our ceremony and reception there. We also rented all the hotel rooms for our family and guests. Staff was great, hotel rooms were clean, and the party was perfect. We worked with Gary who was fun, reassuring, and kept me calm when I went into anxious bride mode. He made sure the day went smooth and perfect. He felt more like family rather than working with a "coordinator." The food was delicious, the rooms looked stunning, bar service was great too. I loved being able to use the courtyard as well for pictures and hanging out during the wedding (by the firepits!). The Foundry was very accommodating to all of our specific requests. Would recommend without a doubt over and over! It's really such a neat venue. Love them!!

    Our day was perfect!

    I could not recommend The Foundry more for your future wedding. Not only is it beautiful, the food is delicious, and the staff is amazing. We worked closely with Ali and she was professional, always quick to respond, and knew her stuff. I opted out of a wedding planner and was a bit nervous about doing that. However, Ali fulfilled all those duties and more! We literally had the best day ever. Thank you, Foundry staff!
