Why we love the wedding industry

Posted December 2, 2014

Before we opened in July, we had just started researching the wedding business and we could not believe how many quality vendors and friendly people we would come across. Jordan Bush was one of the first photographers to snap a couple photos of The Booking House and share them with us. We were so excited to see the photos from our Ribbon Cutting Event on his blog shortly after our opening. We have grown to become good friends with Jordan and he was even kind enough to post this endorsement on our Wedding Wire profile. Thanks Jordan!

“Everything about the Booking House is totally refreshing and exciting! For starters, it is a family owned & operated event venue. If you haven’t discovered it already, the Perrons are amazing to work with. They have a sincere, authentic approach and are genuinely interested in taking care of their guests. They are exceptionally welcoming, a lot of fun, easy to connect with, and very creative to work with. The space itself can accommodate more intimate gatherings of up to 100 or larger events up to 250. The two sided fireplace shared by the main rooms is an amazing centerpiece to both. When you enter the building and walk up the stairs, you’ll turn to enter the grand Rizzardi Room, and if it doesn’t take your breath away, it must be dark. The exposed beams, vaulted ceilings and recessed lighting of the renovated cigar warehouse make for an exquisite setting full of warm character. The Crow’s Nest above is another favorite: a cigar style lounge with huge leather furniture and a bar. There isn’t a venue I’ve photographed in seven years that has the atmosphere and soul of the Booking House, and very few are even comparable in quality. It’s easy to get everything setup with the assistance of an elevator, electrical outlets are conveniently located, and parking close by across the street. Every occasion I get to work with the Perrons at the Booking House is one I absolutely look forward to!”

Amanda’s review on The Knot

Posted October 30, 2014

It’s always so rewarding to hear from your past brides after the wedding day is over. Its so amazing to watch their dreams unfold and to hear their reactions afterwards. This was a review we got on our profile on The Knot from one of first brides to book! Thanks Amanda, congratulations to you & Nick!

“Wedding Of My Dreams!
If your looking for a classy, vintage, brick and wood setting, this is the place for you. Not only is the Booking House beautiful on the inside and out, their service is wonderful and personal. They are very accommodating and truly care about your special day. You can rent 1 or more rooms depending on your guest count. Rettews catering is right across the street which makes planning and service on your wedding day a breeze! The Booking House and Rettews was the best set of team members I could have ever had for my special day.”

 

Chad & Jessica’s Kind Words

Posted September 22, 2014

It’s always so rewarding to hear what our brides have to say after their weddings. This was a review we received from our wedding held this past weekend. Chad & Jessica were a great couple to work with and we wish them the best! Thanks for the kind words!

“I can’t say enough wonderful things about The Booking House. We held our wedding ceremony and reception at the venue on 9/20/14 and everything went so smoothly thanks to our venue. They helped work with our vendors to ensure everyone was on the same page before our event and they communicated with my husband and I throughout the whole process. They are a very new venue but ALL the details were planned so well I would have thought they’ve been in business for 20 years. The decor and feel in the venue were everything I was looking for my wedding, everything is so beautiful and perfect here. I HIGHLY recommend booking with this venue if you are looking for a venue that’s easy to work with that has a beautiful chic and rustic feel.” – Jessica

Pretzels Before Vows

Posted September 16, 2014

This past weekend we had yet another adorable wedding! We were so thrilled to be hosting Kim & Craig’s wedding, because they were one of the first couples to come and tour our building before any work was done to it. They booked on complete faith and they were thrilled with how it turned out. Kim made a lot of the decorations herself and it really added a personal touch to her wedding. One of my favorite parts was the Auntie Annes truck outside serving pretzels to guests as they arrived. It was a the perfect snack to hold them over during the ceremony!  We were so impressed by her DIY details and even more impressed that her daughter was getting married on Sunday! We couldn’t believe that they were hosting two weddings in one weekend but they pulled it off. So happy for the newlyweds! Congratulations Kim & Craig!

Kevin & Carolyn’s Colorful Summer Wedding

Posted September 10, 2014

The cooler weather is here and it’s time to say farewell to beach days, picnics, and summer weddings. It’s so hard to say hello to autumn when we receive photos from our weddings over the summer. One of our favorite summer looks was Kevin & Carolyn’s colorful DIY wildflower wedding. The bright yellows, purples, oranges , and pinks found in her flowers looked adorable in mason jars. We love her colorful look, and we’re certainly going to miss the long warm days of summer!
