Couldn’t have been better!

From day 1, we had nothing but the best experience with The Gatsby! When we booked our day in October of 2020, our wedding day felt so far away, but the team at The Gatsby were always an email away no matter how far out our date was. Through the planning process, they were prompt and thorough. Sybil and Heidi were as excited for our day as we were! We spent a couple hours at the venue visualizing and working out details a few different times and Sybil and Heidi were always more than gracious in allowing us to take more of their time than we had booked. Part of booking the Gatsby is going through them for rentals. As my vision got more detailed, Sybil and Heidi worked with me to find the best rentals, allowing for an even more seamless set up/tear down process. Come wedding day, everything was incredible, just as we had imagined it! The bridal suite was the perfect space for myself and my 4 bridesmaids. The groom’s suite was exactly what we needed to keep the groomsmen entertained. When we toured The Gatsby, I immediately fell in love with the chandeliers and massive double doors and knew I needed them on our day and they could not have been more incredible during our ceremony. I couldn’t have asked for a better entrance. During cocktail hour, our guests had the opportunity to wait in the indoor space or on the sidewalk with their cocktails. The photos from cocktail hour (around 5:45-6:45 in May) had beautiful lighting and our guests really enjoyed spreading out with their cocktails. The staff of the Gatsby flipped the room so fast! The space was set up with plenty of time for us to redecorate for the reception. If you book the Gatsby, definitely book a photo booth as well! The safe was the perfect spot for our photo booth! Close enough to the dance floor that guests could hop in and out easily but not in the way! Our guests absolutely loved the photo booth and if there hadn’t been a designated space, I don’t know that we would have booked one. The Gatsby made our bar menu dreams come true! Not only did they find lavender syrup AND purple glitter for our drinks, but we ran out of syrup during the reception and they got us more! During the reception, the Gatsby staff saw we could benefit from more dance room space and moved tables to give us more room! We had the best time partying with all our loved ones and the staff at the Gatsby! I cannot recommend them enough!!

Management issues

The venue itself is beautiful and was perfect for my wedding. However, management changed twice within the year between booking it and my wedding date. The first transition was okay because I was notified and my original contract was honored. However, between 1-2 weeks before my wedding the management changed again and I was NOT notified. The two coordinators I loved and had planned out the whole day with were not there for my wedding and I found out the night before...lots of extra stress on me (bride) and my day of coordinator. Beautiful venue, but be sure it has stable and transparent management before booking with them.

Venue Was Purchased and No One Notified Us

We booked a year in advance for a NYE wedding and worked with Heidi, who was previously the lead planner. We had finalized most all the details, then about 3 weeks before my event, no one was responding to my emails. Someone named Andrea reached out, without explaining who she was. I was very confused. She then informed me that she and her husband had purchased the venue and that the previous planners should have notified me that I would be working with another planner the day of my wedding. My stress levels were high. Andrea also indicated she would be on site the day of the wedding; we never saw her or heard from her. The venue is very nice; but it's completely unorganized at the moment and I would hesitate to spend over $7 on a venue when the management is poor. If you do book here, I would hire a very assertive and experience day of wedding coordinator to make sure things go smoothly.
