    We had such an amazing wedding at The Oliver Building. Having the venue for the whole weekend made our weekend run so smoothly. We had our rehearsal Friday night, and brought everything over so we didn’t need to deal with it Saturday. Then got ready in the amazing upstairs suites Saturday morning. We had a great time, and Caitlin was so easy to work with! The only reason I took a star off is that we had some issues with the bar. We made it clear from the start that we wanted to prioritize the bar, and didn’t want long lines. Because of that, they said we would have 3 bartenders, and would batch some of our signature cocktails. Unfortunately, we only had two bartenders, despite giving tips for 3, and there were no cocktails batched. We did have a pretty long line at our bar most of the night because of this. All in all, it was an amazing venue for our wedding!!

  • The all around best venue in downtown!

    This venue is perfect! It is not only gorgeous with plenty of exposed brick but it has multiple spaces so you can have your ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all in one spot so your guests don’t have to travel! It’s also a great deal, because you get it all weekend! That makes setup so easy and you don’t have to worry about getting every thing out the night of your wedding! You can also have your rehearsal there which is so convenient too. Caitlin and Curtis are so easy and wonderful to work with! I highly recommend this beautiful venue for any couple! I love providing florals for this space!

    The Oliver Building is a great venue to work with! They are professional, communicative, and flexible. The space is absolutely amazing with the flexibility of their large building which has so much character! The possibilities are endless!
