Went to this venue for a wedding. It was very nice inside and made our evening that much more of a party. Old rustic looking really made for a nice setting.

Industrial and quaint venue in the heart of the distillery district. The fermenting cellar has a unique atmosphere with raw cement/brick walls and super tall ceilings. With the right decor you can host a beautiful wedding ceremony and reception. Photography is tricky with the dim lighting but we'll trained photographers should have no issues getting gorgeous shots of your big day!
