The perfect place to get married!

We recently had our wedding at The Standard and let me tell you THIS IS THE PLACE! The venue itself is gorgeous and for that we needed minimal decorations to help accentuate its beauty. It is nice to have a one stop shop venue with the ceremony and reception to be in the same place. Not to mention they have the best staff. Sara answered out a million questions with kindness and enthusiasm always. Hannah and Zoey were our day of coordinators and helped with anything we needed from coordination of rehearsal to helping set up decorations. Tim was an amazing bartender that kept our night lively and was so fun to work with. We couldn’t have had a more perfect wedding day and we couldn’t recommend The Standard and staff enough!

Absolutely wonderful venue

We had our wedding at The Standard earlier this month and I cannot say enough good things about this venue. The space is absolutely gorgeous and the staff is incredible. We opted for the full coordination package and it was completely worth every penny. Sara worked with us to make sure every single detail was exactly what we wanted and often offered inspiration when we didn’t know exactly what we did want. She gave us a list of preferred local vendors, almost all of which we decided to choose and everyone worked so effortlessly as a team. On the day of the wedding, Sara and Hannah and the whole team working at The Standard constantly checked in with us to make sure we were okay and took care of everything behind the scenes so we could just enjoy the day. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a beautiful space and wonderful team of people to make your wedding dreams come true!

Wedding Experience

If you have never been to The Standard, you are missing out! It is absolutely breathtaking & truly is the most perfect venue for a wedding. Most importantly, working with The Standard team put our minds at ease during the wedding planning process. From the moment we did our venue tour, we knew there was no other place we could see ourselves getting married at. During the months leading up to the wedding, the staff was nothing short of amazing. They were always so responsive & offered assistance when needed. The Day of Coordinators absolutely killed it. From the second we walked through the doors in the morning, they made everyone feel so welcomed. Throughout the reception, they would frequently checked in on us to see how things were going & tell us where we were in terms of our timeline. The coordinators were willing to answer any questions we had & be flexible on the spot. Also, shoutout to Tim and his bar staff as well! The service was phenomenal & the drinks were amazing. The staff here went above and beyond to help make our day perfect and we couldn't thank them enough. I would plan 10 more weddings if it meant that I got to work with The Standard team all over again.
