    A Dream Venue!

    We are SO happy that we chose the Parlour as our wedding venue!
    One of the things that makes the Parlour so special is the fact that you don’t need a ton of decorations and flowers, as the space is SO gorgeous and unique on its own. There are so many stunning vintage pieces that are automatically included as part of renting the space, too—beautiful farmhouse tables, white kindred chairs, pews, altar bar, cake table, cake house, garden table, gold settee, white mantle, framed chalkboard, and more.
    There’s so much value in the things included and we know we saved money in the fact that we didn’t have to rent so many pieces. So many of our guests commented on how stunning the venue was, and the space was absolutely perfect for our smaller guest count, while still making our wedding feel big and grand. We held our ceremony inside the chapel and had the reception outside, but you can format the space however you’d like! Our guests loved the outdoor area—we had cornhole, giant jenga, and a seating area (with the beautiful settees included) to sit at! There’s also a beautiful wildflower area that is PERFECT for pictures.
    We worked with Jessica and she was SO professional, kind, responsive, and easy to work with. Also, when you reach out to vendors, legitimately everyone will comment on how wonderful the owners and staff and staff are at the Parlour—everyone loves working with them.
    Our wedding truly felt like a fairytale and we know it’s because we chose the Parlour as our venue. We will forever recommend them!

    Beautiful Intimate Ceremony

    Due to the COVID my daughter changed from a destination wedding to a local one where we could have close family and a few friends. The Parlour was the perfect choice and they worked with us to make last minute plans turn into the perfect wedding. Thank you to Jessica for her quick responses to our wedding planner. The outdoor settings are beautiful and the bride’s dressing area is gorgeous. Thanks for all you have done to make this the perfect small venue.

    The Parlour at Manns Chapel's reply:

    Amy, it was our sincerest pleasure to get to be a part of Rachel and John's wedding! Sometimes that best things in life are those ones we don't always initially plan for, and we hope that they remember this special day forever. We can't wait to see you all again.
