I can't express how in love I fell with Thirty One West! The venue is exquisite and it has all the historic charm and character a girl could ever dream of. Tom was a breeze to work with! I plan events for a living and was probably the most high strung bride he's ever dealt with and he put up with every meeting I asked for! We booked in October for our April wedding and it was the best decision we made. Thirty One West lets you pick all of your vendors including your caterer! That's seriously the best! We provided open bar for our family and bridal party. Tom came up with a way for that to work using wrist bands. We had about 130 people show up and it was comfortable no one was bumping into each other and chairs had plenty of space. Newark is darling, not only is the venue great but the surrounding streets make for amazing pictures! The balcony is beautiful and fully accessible. The ceremony space is historic and elegant and needs very little decorating. The stage has perfect up lighting for both your ceremony and reception and the sound system is open for your DJ to use. We were able to set up the day before and held our rehearsal dinner in the downstairs bar. Not being from Newark we were given awesome tips about local caterers for our dinner. It was such an easy process made even easier by Tom! This is a can't miss out on venue! The staff are professional, flexible, timely, accommodating, fun, have incredible personalities and will make your wedding everything you could have ever dreamed of and so, so much more!

We were one of their first weddings and it was perfect! We had about 150 guests show up and everyone really loved the uniqueness of the venue. I barely had to decorate because it's so gorgeous inside. They had accent lighting and lit the stage during the reception. The ceremony, they opened the curtains behind the stage to get lots of natural light to flow in. Jessica was a pleasure to work with and is very professional and flexible with my wants and needs. We were allowed our own caterer, but had to purchase an alcohol package with them, but they were able to get the beer and wine we requested. The DJ used their sound system and it worked great to save space and get the best sound. The photos taken in the Arcade and in the venue are gorgeous! I'd recommend taking a tour and getting to know the possibilities. Thanks to Thirty-One West for helping make our wedding the best day ever!

Tom definitely delivered everything that I could have dreamed of! He made the planning process feel relaxing and that we were taken care of.
