    Only 5 stars?!?!

    The refinery is BEYOND a value. The venue, the service, the accommodations are all above and beyond what we expected. We shopped around to multiple venues. For a similar venue, we were looking at 2-3 times what we spent on the refinery. This is before mentioning the unparalleled service that Joy provided to us. If you are looking for a venue with rockstar service regardless of budget, The Refinery is your place.

    Absolutely amazing!

    When touring venues we fell in love with the look, location, and atmosphere of The Refinery. We also loved the price of the venue as it was cheaper than others and we had access to the space the whole day. Then after booking the venue and dealing with Joy Orr we were even happier with out choice of venue. She was easy to get in contact with and always super helpful. She ensured our day went smooth starting from day 1 of booking. Her staff was also great the day of to keep things going smoothly. Joy and her team are the best. I would definitely recommend The Refinery!

    1000/10 Stars

    I don’t think I have enough space in this review to say all of the good things I have to say about the Refinery. From the start of the planning process, to the final moments in the night of our wedding, Joy and her team were amazing people to work with. Joy was very prompt in replying to any and every question we had. We went through our timeline with her months in advance and it put us at so much ease with the level of detail that she helped include. She helped shape our wedding day down to the minute. Even with the minor hiccups we had, her support staff , Gwen and Julie, helped us through it. Our wedding party was absolutely obsessed with Joy and how kind and professional she was. They were very supportive and empathetic as we planned our wedding around COVID and 2020. I feel like giving Joy and The Refinery a 10/10 would not do them justice. There is no scale high enough to truly convey their professionalism, work ethic, and our overall pleasure in how special they made our wedding day. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for all you did.
