Amazing flexibility and organization!
When my Husband and I first walked into the post office we knew we wanted to have our reception there! It is a beautiful facility, very clean and just absolutely breath taking. The staff is very easy to get in contact with and they were a huge help. 2 weeks out from our wedding and we had to change our guest size from 90 to 25 because of the new Virginia Covid regulations. Madeleine, HPO wedding coordinator was fabulous! She helped us do all the last minute changes and our wedding was absolutely perfect. The groom and bridal suites are absolutely amazing!! So much fun to hangout there and get ready. Truly and awesome experience!Sent on 12/07/2020

Madeline is the best!
From the moment I walked into The Historic Post Office I knew I HAD to get married there. My husband and I booked this venue a little over a year ago to be sure that we got it! Our wedding was March 14th 2020 and it was a day I’ll never forget. Madeline was AMAZING through the wedding planning process and always kept me calm and handled so much so I didn’t have much to worry about. She communicated with all my vendors which took a lot of the stress off of me. For that, I will forever be grateful! The staff on the day of was great! The venue itself is so beautiful and helped my dreams come true! Best day ever!💕Sent on 03/26/2020

Amazing venue! Amazing staff!
We chose the HPO based on proximity to our church and it was one of the best decisions we could have made. The space is gorgeous and we received so many compliments on the layout of the tables and dance floor. We also made the decision early on the add on the coordination services they offer and were so lucky to work with Madeline. Madeline made our entire vision come to life and the reception was exactly how we pictured it. She communicated with vendors, coordinated the set up, and even broke down the event at the end of the night. She was so responsive to my emails and always provided valuable insight when I was making decisions. She is so knowledgeable! We had the absolute best experience with the post office and can't stop recommending them to our friends and family.Sent on 10/09/2019

Beautiful location with plenty of event potential. Great for weddings, parties, or conferences. Great staff! Highly recommend!
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.
