Beautiful venue

My husband and I just got married here on January 11, 2024 and we had the absolute best time. We were a very quick turn around wedding and planned the whole thing in a little until 4 months. Katie and Jess were both our point of contacts throughout the process and I can’t say enough good things about the both of them. Jess was always there to answer any and all questions I had, no matter how silly they may have seemed. She was so supportive and encouraging! The roomforty + pharmacie staff was outstanding, treated all of our guests like royalty all night, along with the food and drinks being AMAZING. The venue is absolutely beautiful, we loved that it had two bridal quites - one for the girls and one for the boys. My husband loved playing poker with his boys the morning of. We couldn’t recommend this venue and their catering team enough!

Had the wedding of our dreams

We had the honor of hosting our wedding here at The Harper on 1/19. From start to finish, Jess was such a great help. We’ve obviously never done this before and she was there every step of the way to answer any questions we had. Not only did we get referred to a Wedding Planner, but they made it easy to find all vendors we needed. They broke down all the information we needed with contacts and websites.
It was such a smooth sailing process. Perry and I could not have been more blessed to find this venue. It is beautiful inside and out and it made our night very memorable. They were always willing to help and answer any and all of our questions. Trust me, when I thought I had stupid a question, they made me feel like it was an important question.
Roomforty (f&b) were a pleasure to work with. They were there every step of the day to make sure our guests and us (the bride and groom) were taken care of. Everyone enjoyed their service and we received so many compliments on their behalf. Food and drinks were amazing. Everyone just enjoyed their hospitality and they even enjoyed themselves as well. Such friendly personalities and got along well with our guests.

The perfect wedding venue!

My husband and I loved having our wedding at the Harper venue. It was the perfect location for our wedding and I’m so glad we chose it as our venue. The bridal suites, ceremony space, and reception space are all in one location which made it extremely convenient for us and our guests. Communication with Lyzmari, Jess, and their whole team was easy and efficient from the very beginning. They are professional, accommodating, and organized. The venue is exactly as described and we loved all of the small touches that made this venue perfect, from the picture perfect getting-ready suites to the complimentary beverages waiting for us in the suites and post-ceremony. At our production meeting, Jess and the team made sure the floor plan and all of the details for our wedding were clearly communicated and we so appreciated all of the small changes and adjustments they were able to accommodate even leading up to the wedding day. We had an amazing experience getting married, and we couldn’t have asked for a more seamless experience than with the Harper and the Hospitality Collaborative team.
