A gorgeous venue with an amazing staff who are dedicated to making your day perfect. What more could a bride ask for? I could not be happier with The Transept and Funky’s Catering. Emily at Funky’s was amazing to work with; she was extremely organized, responsive and handled the small details that I would have forgotten. I was able to enjoy the planning process and I never felt the stress of wedding planning because of Emily and the rest of the staff at Funky’s. We received so many compliments on the venue and the food from all of our guests!! I would highly recommend The Transept to anyone getting married!

My husband and I held our wedding reception at The Transept in March and are so pleased with that decision! The bridesmaids and I had a blast getting ready in the beautiful bridal tower. Funky's Catering staff was wonderful, truly anticipating and accommodating all of our needs for the day. Our family and friends have all remarked on how beautiful the venue was, and we couldn't agree more. Our photos turned out beautifully, thanks to the gorgeous architecture and design, notably the lovely stained glass windows. This was the perfect space for our 150-guest reception, as it felt intimate, warm, and inviting.

The venue is absolutely amazing! The food was phenomenal (we did food stations and LOVED it) and the service is excellent! Would definitely recommend this venue. Be careful of hidden prices though, there were lots of little things that popped up that we weren't told about.
