    10/10 Recommend

    Working with Ellie and the HPO team was incredible. We paid for the day of coordinator, and got a full fledged planner and life long friend out of it. The venue was flawless, and our guests were mesmerized by the inside of the venue. We would recommend 1,000 times.

    Perfect Wedding Venue and Coordination

    We had such a wonderful experience with the HPO venue and their coordination service option. It’s their venue and boy do they know how to run the show. I’m sure that all of the coordinators are wonderful, but we were lucky to have had Ellie Bernstein beside us. We enjoyed every meeting leading up to the big day, helpful tips, and vendor recommendations. She helped us make sure things where addressed, gave us assignments, and was always available to answer questions. I can’t say enough about that because we opted to plan our own wedding and this was JUST the right support we needed. We still drove things—- but her wisdom was vital to our success. She helped execute our set up and breakdown perfectly. From what I hear the breakdown is always a bit of a scramble. That’s the only advice I’ll give is plan ahead (more then you think needed) to leave with things that night. There are always little things that happen with these events, behind the scenes, and I promise you don’t want to handle them on your most important day. You can trust the HPO team to have your back and have your best interests. I highly recommend.
    The venue is gorgeous and a perfect canvas for however you want to make it your own event. The area is perfect with bars that are walking distance and a nice hotel around the corner. It’s the full package.

We love working @ The Historic Post Office! There are so many possibilities within the space and the area nearby is great for photos. The time and attention to detail that went into the renovations is just amazing - you won't be disappointed!

The Historic Post Office is the perfect venue for large or small weddings (or any event, really!). The building is unique because it's historic and has a ton of character and charm, yet is also a blank canvas so it can host many different styles. It is hard to find a really beautiful, flexible indoor space for a large wedding, but this place is perfect! The upstairs and downstairs is a really neat aspect as well that you can't find anywhere else. Kelsey and her team are really dedicated to making sure everything is perfect for their events, and they are also willing to go outside of the box with new ideas. We highly recommend The Historic Post Office to brides, businesses, or anyone looking to host in a neat location with a wonderful support staff.
