    Wonderful!

    The venue was perfect for our ceremony and reception. Staff were great to work with! The Bridal Suite is a great, comfortable space to get ready in. The chapel is beautiful! The courtyard was perfect for cocktail hour. It is a pretty and large space. Our guests couldn’t stop taking about how pretty and unique the space is!

    Great Venue!

    We stumbled upon the McPherson by random chance and it was such a great discovery! We had to book over a year in advance to get a date we wanted but it was worth the wait! We did both ceremony and reception there and everything worked out perfectly, thanks to Philip! The ceremony was outside on their gorgeous patio that has all its own natural decorations so we didn’t need to do hardly anything since it was beautiful to begin with. The reception was inside with awesome high ceilings and beautiful wood and stained glass windows and so many guests were blow away at its natural beauty. Without even meaning to, it gave off the vibe of being somewhat Harry Potter themed, which is the best compliment in my eyes. Philip has made an amazing venue and worked so hard to make sure everything ran smoothly, even when it looked like it was about to rain! He’s prepared for everything and was easy to communicate with at any time in our planning! We can’t thank him enough and can only hope more people get to experience the greatness that is The McPherson!!

    A hidden gem in the CWE

    The McPherson is an amazing venue. From it's former chapel-look with the stain glass windows to the incredible outdoor courtyard, it had everything we were looking for. Philip was a great host and easy to work with. Many of our guests commented on how beautiful the space was. I would highly recommend the McPherson to anyone. It's a hidden gem in the Central West End.
