    Gorgeous Venue! Great Service!

    Spruce St. Studios was the perfect venue for our Ceremony and Reception!! We looked at several different venues, but after meeting with Renee, we both knew that we had found the right one. Renee was so helpful with the entire planning process. It was so great to be able to rent certain pieces of decor from the venue which saved us the hassle of transporting everything back and forth to Shelbyville.

    We met and spoke with Renee regularly, which helped ease our minds when we weren't confident that we had everything under control. Neither my husband nor I had ever been to a same-sex wedding before, but Renee and the rest of the staff were so helpful finding different ways to work in the traditional items like the bouquet and garter toss.

    Overall, the entire event went 100X better than we could have ever wished for. The bartender, Mel, was FAST and super friendly. We got so many compliments about the bar service. The "Event Manager", Kaylee, kept the entire building clean and was so helpful with all of the little things that came up. We were both able to actually enjoy ourselves the entire time.

    If we had to do it again, we would absolutely work with Renee and the rest of the team. Thank you again Spruce St. Studios!

    Perfect Wedding Day!

    Spruce St Studios is a beautiful venue! Perfect for our ceremony and reception. The chandeliers, high ceilings, rock wall and overall cozy feeling is what sold me on this place. Renee is great to work with - creative - patient - helpful through the entire process. She was available anytime I had questions or concerns and helped ease my nerves. She gave me ideas and was also up for new ideas. We received so many compliments on the venue. Spruce St Studios is the perfect venue for your wedding!

    Top notch!

    Would highly recommend! My husband and I could not be happier that we chose Spruce Street for our wedding and reception. The entire staff felt more like our closest friends by the end of our reception. They are very easy to work with, and being able to have the ceremony and reception in one place takes a lot of stress away!

    I would also highly recommend taking advantage of their in-house Blooms on Spruce for flowers. Everything was so beautiful and exactly how I wanted it.

    Spruce St!

    I am thrilled we chose Spruce St for our special day. The venue is beautiful. We received so many compliments on the venue. There are plenty of linen to chose from as well! Each wedding at the venue looks completely different, it’s amazing! Renee is very responsive to texts and emails and is open to trying new things! It was a great value for the money spent, and I wouldn’t change a thing!

    Our Dream Wedding

    Before we chose Spruce St we looked at several different venues. Even though they had nice things to offer, there was no competition. Renee was amazing to work with! She kept up with us often, gave us ideas, and helped me tremendously come wedding day!

    Perfect venue for ALL types of events

    Wether your event vision is rustic, romantic, boho or elegant, this venue space will work! In 2015, my partner and I held our Commitment reception in Studio A. It was beautiful! The space became our vision of Winter in the Woods seamlessly. The staff went out of their way to accommodate our needs and were welcoming and warm to our guests. We had such a great experience, we recently used Studio B for our daughter’s baby shower. Everything was prepared for us in advance: table setup, linen in place, catering tables exactly where we requested them.... We also rented terrariums and the pallet wall backdrop at VERY reasonable cost. Renee was a dream to work with. She saw our vision and did everything she could to help us bring it to fruition. We will most definitely use this venue again for our future events.

    One of a kind!

    It was the perfect place to host our wedding reception! Renee was great to work with and always got back so quickly when I had questions. My husband and I had a budget to keep in mind when planning. All the venues we looked at with character were way above our price range. Spruce street studios, specifically room B, had amazing character for a reasonable price that didn't brake the bank. Definitely going to keep it in mind for future events!

    Beautiful venue at a great price!

    This venue is beautiful! The staff is extremely easy to work with and responsive to any questions!
    Right at the end of our outdoor cocktail hour...it started drizzling. The staff was already gathering our guests inside and getting the indoor bar ready for service before we even walked to the door. Renee really took my vision of how I wanted my ceremony and reception to look and made it come to life!
    This venue has the added bonus of a fantastic florist on site. Blooms on Spruce produced the most beautiful crown, corsages, and boutonnieres ever! I never thought I would be the one to save real flowers after my wedding, but now I already have these flowers drying to I can hang them on my wall and look at them everyday.

    Professional, supportive, flexible!

    I highly recommend this versatile venue. The refurbished building is an effective blend: interesting architectural elements have been saved ( stained glass windows, soaring wooden arches, exposed wooden beams), but modern, elegant touches ( fabulous chandeliers, barnwood doors, neutral but not dull walls) keep it fun and from feeling too “dusty”/ depressingly old.
    Service was always professional and prepared, and employees were friendly and informative about local elements involving music, food, flowers, etc.
    Our event occurred the weekend of a blizzard, and owner Renee saved the day in many ways, including arranging for a local minister when the original one couldn’t attend, and she was prompt in contacting medical personnel and offering other types of help when a guest needed immediate medical attention.

    This is hands down the best venue. It’s absoutely beautiful and the staff are wonderful. Renee was a life saver. I got married in the middle of a blizzard and my officiant canceled. She drove in the snow to pick up an officiant so I could actually get married that day. She is dedicated to her brides and I will always recommend this venue. I love how flexible the space is which allows you to decoarte it however you want.

    Wonderful Experience!

    Spruce St. is a gorgeous venue! We had a 75-guest combined ceremony and reception at Studio A. Gorgeous room, we loved the wood beams and the chandeliers! The rock wall is also stunning. Our room flip went very smoothly. You get a lot of support from Renee, the venue owner, through the planning process! Invaluable.
    Our Day-Of coordinators were also top notch, and so was our bartender! This place is well worth the value and I highly recommend them. Definitely check them out!
