Cuvee is a gorgeous wedding and reception site! We were very pleased with how the evening turned out. We were kind of hesitant coming into the evening not ever meeting the event coordinator as she was new. But Jennifer did a fantastic job, keeping me and my husband informed. She worked great with our caterer and DJ to make sure the night went on without a hiccup! And I can honestly say not a thing went wrong, and if it did it was taken care of before I even knew about it! I would highly recommend Cuvee as a venue! And one last thing the bartenders ROCKED!! Thanks so much again for all your hard work!

Great wedding venue! We had about 120 people and it was a great space that didn't need many decorations.

Cuvee is lovely. I'm so happy we had our reception here. It was a little daunting to go through so much staff turnover (from the point we signed the contract to the point of our wedding was 13 months and they had 4 venue coordinators in that time) but everything worked out beautifully. Jennifer is courteous, kind, and professional. I didn't have any interaction personally with the owner (Kris? I think?) but my day of coordinator said she is pleasant as well.
My only small gripe is their lack of flexibility surrounding the bar. I get it, weddings are their bread and butter so they have the right to set their own rules but it was such a pain that they wouldn't close the bar during dinner so that we could extend our package a bit longer. 99% of wedding venues will have the bar open for cocktail hour, close during dinner while people are seated and eating, and reopen after dinner for dancing, etc. Cuvee will only allow "continuous" bar service...so if you want a bar package from 6-12, you are paying for 6-12 even though barely anyone is drinking during the dinner hour from 7-8pm since they're in a different room and settled. It seems like a giant waste. We even announced that the bar would still be open, but again, once everyone is settled and eating and talking with their table they don't want to get up, leave the room, order their drinks, and come back.
But, really, that's my only negative. I would absolutely recommend Cuvee as a venue overall. My family and friends raved about it!

If you end up booking Cuvee for your wedding ceremony or reception, likely it will be because it is a beautiful space and perfect for a group of maybe 100-175 guests. Ours were so impressed with the look of it- they loved the huge bar with lots of seats and booths, the exposed cream city brick, the included mahogany chairs, and the way it felt intimate without being crowded. Overall, we really loved the space. That being said, a big part of what we remember about having used Cuvee was the frustrating process leading up to the big day. In the 13 months from when we booked and the actual day, we had 4 - yes, 4! - different event coordinators. And NEVER were we notified that the coordinator had changed - we had to infer from the fact that our emails were suddenly being returned by a new person. They were incredibly inflexible when it came to bar options (you get the choice of 4 cheap wines and Miller Lite or High Life) and only honored our consumption bar package for us when we put up a huge fight, since it was an option when we booked (and then was removed later without notice). They even advertise that you can choose champagne for your "special celebration" but then theywere annoyed when we asked for it and said we could only do the "house bubbly," whatever brand it was. Jennifer never did get our floor plan correct. Despite my emailing many times about it, I would ask for 16 tables and get a reply with 18 or 14 tables or a reply stating that I had never sent her my desired plan (untrue). They will charge you extra for set-up and take-down anyways, so I would highly recommend bringing in a planner or day-of coordinator to make sure it looks how you want, since you can't count on who might be your contact on the wedding day. Overall, we got really tired of having to argue constantly for what we wanted, for the lack of professionalism on the part of the staff, and it really left a bad taste for us. For what they charge for the rental, we expected far better treatment.

We selected Cuvee for our reception because we were looking for an urban space in a cool location that could easily accommodate 150+ guests. Cara, the coordinator at Cuvee, is wonderful. She went above and beyond to help us customize the experience for our guests. We met with her a couple of times leading up to the event and then her staff did a great job the night of. We live out of town, so having her trust and high level of execution were very important to us. The space is beautiful and we received many compliments from our guests. We especially appreciated that after dinner the whole dining space and the champagne lounge are open, which offer many different spaces for guests of different ages to enjoy the reception.

The location is great, the staff is awesome. A very pretty venue and everything worked out well for our day. The location is great for smaller receptions (under 150 people). Parking can be an issue and add cost but we were very happy on our big day.

I was so happy with Cuvee as our wedding reception. It's absolutely gorgeous with the exposed brick walls and lounge/bar area so you really don't need that many other decorations. Cara, our coordinator, and Kris, the owner, were fantastic - they always responded promptly to our questions and did everything they could to make our day special. The venue is a bit on the pricier side, but definitely worth the splurge.

The only possible drawback for some brides might be that they require you to purchase their alcohol (since they are normally a bar). This doesn't allow you to bring in your own liquor and save money, however their specialty drinks are delicious and definitely a fun idea if you want to do a signature drink.
