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.Sent on 08/29/2020

Beautiful venue with beautiful team
I always imagined myself having a barn wedding. However, when I first saw the Refinery, both my husband and I fell in love with this venue! My husband didn’t really comment on other venues that we looked at, but when he saw this venue, he said “wow”. We both loved the rustic and industrialized venue (and who doesn’t like green plants!). Being able to have both the ceremony and reception at the same place was a big plus!
And I HAVE to mention the Refinery team and JOY! Joy is really the best. The moment I talked with her for the first time, I could easily tell that she is not only an easy going person, but also loves what she is does and cares for the couple. She answered all my questions, helped me with vendor choices, helped manage my expectations, and really helped me to bring my dream wedding into life!
There are so many things that Joy and her team did for me on the wedding day. They took care of little details that I forgot about. Because of them, my wedding went so smoothly and everyone had a great time. Joy and her team definitely took off a lot of stress and burden away from me. I can’t thank them enough. My husband and I had a great memorable day thanks to Joy and her team!Sent on 04/28/2020

There are no words to explain how amazing the Refinery is
I can not even put into words how incredible both the venue and the entire staff is. From the very first moment I walked in I knew this venue was special. Joy answered my millions of questions and went out of her way to make the day special.
Our caterer never showed up. Joy and her entire team went ABOVE AND BEYOND to ensure My husband and I still had the perfect day. They went to the store and got food for cocktail hour and went quickly to pick up pizza for our guests. They served all of the food, cleaned up trash, and I mean seriously did it all. Without them the entire day would have been ruined.
I can’t recommend them enough for your special day. If you want to get married somewhere that you don’t have to worry about a thing, somewhere you will feel like royalty, and somewhere that is absolutely gorgeous, this is the place.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for saving our wedding day.Sent on 11/16/2020
