Labor day wedding
I would highly recommend Frazier for any events/weddings to anyone. I worked with Tori Nale as my coordinator. She was absolutely outstanding!! Very friendly, very hard-working, and a perfectionist are just a few of her qualities. She was a big key in making our wedding perfect! Not one thing went wrong with working with Frazier! Not one! We got married on the rooftop. Absolutely breathtaking. The Frazier staff had the rooftop flowers looking beautiful. The facility was very clean. All the staff I worked with were very professional. Couldn’t thank them enough. HIGHLY recommend Tori and the Frazier.Sent on 10/19/2018

Excellent experience all around!!!
Hubby and I loved getting married at The Frazier! Tori and Abby were great coordinators. They walked us through everything, and made sure the wedding and reception went smoothly. We kept the decorations minimal, because The Frazier has such a classic and rustic look. And the cocktail hour in the Order of the Writ room was just perfect! And, even though it poured on our wedding day (which ruined the plan for a rooftop ceremony), we had a beautiful backup location, and we were able to take wedding pics anywhere in the museum!Sent on 03/22/2019

The Frazier Museum did a fantastic job with our daughter's wedding. Having the Speak Easy with the Prohibition exhibit for the cocktail hour was a great idea. Abby our coordinator was the best!Sent on 10/24/2017
Every detail will be covered by the professionals at Frazier. If you don't book you will be sorry you didn't.
If you are wanting a special venue with romance check out Frazier History Museum in downtown Louisville. This place has everything. Lots of space, open floor plan and wonderful planners.
Beautiful venue with a friendly staff that is very attentive to their clients needs!
