Above and Beyond!
The Historic Post Office was absolutely amazing! The venue is gorgeous and elegant. The speakeasy is sophisticated and hip. The combination of the two made for the perfect wedding day. We received so many compliments from our guests on the choice of venue. The day flowed seamlessly between ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Our main contact, Tony Fisher, always made himself available to answer all our questions. He was so vital to success of our wedding planning, especially during covid. The venue coordinator, Brooke Fearka, walked us through everything the week of the wedding and then did an amazing job coordinating the day of with her partner Sage. The day could not have gone smoother and thats all thanks to the fantastic staff at the Historic Post Office. I recommend the Historic Post Office to anyone considering choosing them. It was possibly the best decision of our wedding planning.Sent on 12/24/2020

Best Day Ever
First off, the Venue itself is STUNNING!! As for the staff, I cannot say enough good things! Andrea, Brooke & Sage were hands on from the moment the bridal party and I arrived. Making sure all the little details were taken care of and us girls had all we needed!! I had many detailed & pleasant conversations with Tony as we navigated through rescheduling and restrictions with a Covid wedding.Sent on 11/17/2020
I would ABSOLUTELY recommend this venue and staff to every engaged couple. There isn’t a detail we would or could have changed to make the day any better!! :)
Historic Post Office's reply:Emily, thank you so much for your kind words. You and Tanner were incredible to work with and our team loved helping you create your dream wedding!
