    Two Happy Guys

    This event space is one of those places where you walk in and say, "Yup, this is it!" At least that's what we did. Its industrial/modern vibe is so perfect. And they have multiple rooms and space, making it easy to plan a wonderful day without leaving the property. And we can't begin to say how nice the event space staff is, as well as all of the vendors we utilized from their preferred list. I'm sure we will be back there whenever we have other event needs.

    The Best Day Ever!!!

    I only visited one venue, and I just knew that I had to get married at The West Events! The venue manager and staff were communicative, knowledgeable, and timely in their responses leading up to the event. I loved that we were able to do everything in one place - the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Having everything together allowed us to truly live in the moment, and we didn't have to worry about travel or transportation. We had selected all of their vendors off of their approved vendor list, and every single one was incredible! One of my favorite things about the venue is that it's like a blank canvas. You can really let your imagination run wild! I truly don't have one negative thing to say about the venue. The price was very reasonable for all that was included, and I would highly recommend The West Events to anyone who is looking to get married in the future!

Laurie  Davidson-Smith
Laurie Davidson-Smith
Venue Owner

Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, Laurie Davidson-Smith, a former SEC Championship pitcher for The University of Georgia, was not scared of a challenge. Alongside her business partner, Michele Smith, a 2x Olympic gold-medalist softball pitcher and ESPN analyst, revitalizing historic buildings is a passion. Their first large project was to restore a ramshackle relic of Old Florida into what is now the Sunset Inn and Cottages, which consistently ranks as TripAdvisor鈥檚 #1 hotel in Treasure Island. Most recently, when they spotted a long-vacated, run-down laundromat, their newest project was born: The West Events, the area鈥檚 newest event venue. Michele and Laurie preserved the structural integrity and industrial soul of this mid-century building. Exposed brick, wooden accent walls, polished concrete floors, and industrial lighting create the perfect backdrop for any occasion, from wedding receptions to corporate events. They can't wait to host you!
