    Gorgeous venue and a dream team!

    This is the one stop shop for all things wedding!!! The venue itself is absolutely stunning but the staff are the real treasure here. I had no clue what I was doing and they guided me through the whole thing making it stress free and they were extremely flexible along the way. All of the vendors they recommended/including were incredibly as well. Really a dream team!

    Best Venue Ever

    The Historic Post Office was the first and only place we toured. I think the day after we saw it we signed our contract and picked our date. All the information they give you up front is super helpful as well as their preferred vendor list, which gave us a great starting point for choosing the rest of our vendors. The space itself is gorgeous on its own but it was nice to know their DOC service would handle everything too. We had Ellie as our coordinator and she was so sweet, helpful, fun, and made our wedding planning, wedding week, day and experience top notch. We loved the updates they keep adding - the vault/photo booth area was all cleared out and painted and looked great, the bridal suite to get ready in was well lit and comfortable, and the men's parlor was a blast for them. We loved that we didn't have to worry about weather or transportation and everything was all in the same spot. If you choose this venue, which you 100% should, definitely ask for Ellie - you won't be disappointed. The hotel across the street was super convenient as well as the bars / restaurants / coffee & donut shops and area had everything we could want. We may be bias but we had the best experience, the most fun, and beautiful wedding here!

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.
