Loved our Wedding and The Wooly
Great staff and great deal. Professional and prompt communications and lots to offer. The space is beautiful without much decor (if on a budget, like us) but can be a fairytale if you'd like! Go with The Top for catering - process is simple, food options are delicious. Would get married here again if that was a thing.Sent on 03/29/2020
The Wooly's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words, Elizabeth! We loved celebrating your big day with your favorite people! We are so glad you had the best day ever.

Beautiful art deco venue in downtown Gainesville with a wonderful event coordinator
This venue was truly perfect for our wedding reception. It's in the heart of downtown Gainesville and the venue itself has an art deco flare to it. The best thing about it all was Bailey, the event coordinator, who was so responsive and detail oriented. She executed our vision beyond what we had even imagined and was so accommodating. And the Wooly team was so friendly and professional during the wedding. The food was catered by, Gainesville favorite, The Top. We have received an enormous amount of compliments on the venue and the reception itself.Sent on 03/04/2020
All of Bailey's recommendations were great as well. We went with Cameron Burress for the DJ, Mercer & Smith for day of coordination, and Ladybug Blooms for our florists.
After the reception all the friends went right across the street to The Atlantic and University Club to keep the party going. We are grateful that we went with the Wooly because it was perfect.
Will upload pictures when we get them back from our photographer!
The Wooly's reply:Jasmyne! Thank you so much for your glittering review. We LOVED celebrating with you earlier this year. We are thrilled that you had a gorgeous wedding, and perfect day with you and your favorite people.

Unique, Personal, and Affordable!
Working with Bailey and The Top Secret Events team was amazing and so easy! If we were to do it all over again we would without a doubt choose this team for our wedding! Bailey was responsive and flexible throughout the process which is such a luxury when wedding planning. She also went the extra mile to make sure our day was unique to us and helped set up a first-look at The Dime Bar where our first date was. It was such a sweet and special moment and we were so grateful to her for making that happen. From the venue, to the catering, and even the lighting, this team ensures that your priorities are their priorities. I HIGHLY recommend working with The Top Secret Events for all things wedding related!Sent on 08/13/2020
The Wooly's reply:Tori! Thank you so much for your review! It was so much fun being able to celebrate with you and your loved ones on your big day!
The Wooly is a super fun venue for a wedding. They are wonderful to work with and have plenty of areas for cocktail, reception, and dance party!
Great hidden gem of a venue in downtown Gainesville. The décor is to die for.
