This was a wonderful place for my wedding. Mary and Amanda worked with me for everything I could possibly need. The were very flexible with the needs for inside and outside. Not only is this a beautiful venue, but it has everything you could want. It has a designated gift area and photo booth. It has a bar and the perfect spot for a caterer if you do a buffet style menu. They were always open to me coming down if I wanted to look at something and were extremely accommodating. I would recommend this place to ANYONE!

If you're looking for a fun and unique reception (or ceremony) venue, the Historic Firehouse No. 2 is it! We fell in love with this place and were so happy to have our reception here! Mary and Amanda were so great to work with, they are knowledgable about what works and who to recommend. We never wanted our reception to end!

While pricey this venue was absolutely beautiful. We originally booked for just 5 hours but after we found out that set up needed to be done in that time period as well we decided to book the venue for the entire day. In the end this was a better fit for us and allowed us to take our time setting up. We also sprung for the upstairs loft as an area where the bride and her bridesmaids could get ready, it was expensive but the convenience was nice. For us we fell in love with it the moment we walked into the building. The garden was dead in the winter when we booked the venue but by the time of our wedding it was full of beautiful trees and flowers. We saved time by having the ceremony outside in the garden and then the reception indoors, even if we took the risk of having the outside ceremony. They do have a plan B in case of bad weather. The inside of the venue has been beautifully remodelled and offered us a wonderful backdrop for our reception. One of the major pluses was the interior, it was so wonderfully decorated as is, we hardly had to do much decorating ourselves. All we did was put out a few photos and knick knacks and dressed the tables, all of the other ambiance came from the building itself. They also had a photo booth already set up, not something we would have done ourselves but a nice addition which was popular at the reception.The owner can take some getting used to but she is very professional. She is busy and there were some delays in contact but nothing that had any lasting effect on the event itself, also her assistant Amanda was available if the owner wasn't to help with any questions. We wanted to give a special thanks to Amanda, who on the day of the wedding went to great lengths to make sure everything went smoothly and that we were happy, she is wonderful. I can't think of a better venue in Springfield for not only a wedding but any type of large party, this venue is fantastic and I would highly recommend it.

Amazing Venue. The indoor/outdoor versatility was perfect for us- for it allowed many more guest for a great price. I agree with other people who have used this venue in the past- the owner and staff is hard to get used to. We had some confusion with booking- ended up not being able to have our rehearsal dinner there the night before which made rehearsal difficult and some goofs during the actual ceremony. The morning of the wedding we were able to set up at 830 a.m.- They showed up 30 minutes late and smelled of booze. The owner took a plate of food home to her husband before my husband and I could even get to the food. THEN during photos asked if her employees could help themselves to the food! I was totally blown away. Their bartenders poured heavy drinks- resulting in running out of alcohol and many guest were over served. Our wedding ended early do to this. She was present all night and bossy. Unfortunately, I would not recommend using this venue even though its so beautiful because of management.

We are so glad we chose the Firehouse as the place where we tied the knot and had our reception. I feel like literally every single one of our guests complimented our choice of venue. Several of our friends said this was the best wedding they had ever been too. Our friend whom had just gotten married 2.5 months ago told us that our wedding was way more beautiful than her own, and she wouldn't say that if it weren't true. Very beautiful venue! Our only complaint was that the owner is a little too "overly helpful". She was interfering with the photographer, giving her own "directions" on how to pose. Also a bummer is that you are not allowed to tape anything on the walls, but we still managed to make the venue look extra special! Highly recommend this venue for your special day!

The firehouse is a nice venue, but could be managed better. The owner changes tables and chairs without telling those who have booked the venue in the future, which could make planning difficult for some people. Overall its not bad, we would still us the firehouse if we had to do it again.

This was a unique place for a wedding. We got awesome picture becasue of the unique backgrounds and pretty flowers. We were able to utilize the outside courtyard for the wedding and inside for the reception. This made it nice for the guests because there was no traveling between locations. The firehouse has a small number of tables and chairs that can be used instead of renting but they do not match. A wedding for 200 was a tight squeeze but it worked. The built in bar with keg taps was very convienent. There was also an area pre set up for cateriing. Lack of air conditioning made my summer wedding VERY hot! They had installed ceiling vents at the time but these did very little to cool the building. My reception was am amazing time for everybody but becasue of the temperature all of the people in my pictures are sweaty. The temp outside that day was probably about 90 degrees so perhaps a cooler day would be a little better. My cake's icing was melting off by the time we were ready to cut it, had we put it out later the problem would be solved however that was not practical for us at the time. They also had pre-hung white lights on the fence of the courtyard and inside around the door and up collumns in the center. This was very pretty.
