We recently had our wedding at Mulberry Art Studios on June 28th. We had approximately 150 guests at our evening wedding. I wanted to choose a venue in the Lancaster area that was unique and had its own story. I was able to get just that with Mulberry Art Studios. The building has so many unique touches. We used the entire building; we had our ceremony and cocktail hour on the first floor, and used the second floor as our reception area. I was hesitant about choosing Mulberry Art Studios because of reviews from several years ago, but those are definitely outdated. April and Lynn couldn't have been more accommodating to the ideas we had for our wedding. We were allowed to choose the art that went on the walls, and while I don't have much of an artistic touch, April was able to put pieces together which looked absolutely beautiful.

As a heads up to some brides, April is easier to reach on telephone rather than email. I set up my wedding from Maryland, but it was easily doable! I went up a few times and met with April to review everything we wanted for our wedding. She was able to meet with our caterer too. She was incredibly organized and was such a pleasure to get to know when planning our wedding. She and her crew worked so hard on the day of the wedding to ensure everything was set up exactly as we wanted. We couldn't be more grateful to Mulberry Art Studios for giving us a wonderful night.

Originally, our plan was to go with a venue that had food and everything in house, but quickly we realized that what we'd save in outside vendors, we'd lose in food/drink choices and creative control. That's when we found April and Mulberry Art Studios. Saying that she was a joy to work with is an understatement. She worked with us on our budget and our needs every step of the way and made herself available at all times, the woman is a workaholic! One major thing that we loved about going with Mulberry was that there are a lot of extras that are included (e.g., chairs, some tables, centerpiece materials, etc.), but just be sure you know what is and what is not. We ended up using the whole building for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception and couldn't be happier with the result. Everything looked better than we had envisioned, it was just beautiful. We found it helpful to have a few point people/vendors to make sure things kept running smoothly and on time, but honestly couldn't be happier and certainly recommend this vendor to others!

We recently had our wedding reception at Mulberry Art Studios on August 16, 2014. We had an approximately 200 guests at our reception. April is an amazing person to work with! Her and her fabulous team did an outstanding job with the set up and tear down of the reception. April was able to be reached at any time we needed to speak with her about our planning. She was very accommodating and made sure we had a great time! We used all three locations in Mulberry Art Studios for cocktail hour, dinner & dancing. All of our guests enjoyed themselves and could not stop raving about the venue!

I used this venue for our son's Bar Mitzvah party and could not be more thrilled with the outcome. I had a tiny seed of an idea that I wasn't even sure would work and April made it happen with breathtaking results. The venue itself is full of character so you really don't even need much in the way of overall decorations. There are multiple rooms both big and small so there's a lot of flexibilty in terms of getting spaces to meet your needs. April and her whole staff made me feel like my event was the only event and she always made time for me. She had so many ideas and such a creative touch that there was no need for me to hire a separate party planner. I was able to get my linens through her which saved money, time and aggravation. She has a large stash of vases, easels, table number holders.... available for general use and she was even kind enough to lend me some of her own personal belongings because she felt they added to the overall look I was trying to achieve. One of my friends had prepared a special presentation but realized that she had left her props in Columbus, OH. April immediately worked with us to try to pull together things she could use. I also had vendors coming from New York with large attractions and April coordinated well with them both before and during my event. The entire staff went out of their way to accomodate me and make my event special. There's also plenty of parking for guests. I cannot say enough wonderful things about my experience with MAS.

April and the Mulberry staff made our wedding a great success! From the moment we walked in and met April we knew it was the place. Our wedding was 2 weeks ago and people are still buzzing about how wonderful the space was.

April was a joy to work with. She let us have the wedding of our dreams. Many other places we visited tried to steer our wedding ideas towards a direction we wouldn't want to go (vegetarian reception, dogs in wedding, large number of people with plenty of dancing) April and her wonderful crew strived to make our wedding vision a reality and was so enthusiastic with each and every (albeit strange) request we asked of her.

She was there helping us and guiding us, giving her opinion when we asked, and taking our requests when we thought we knew what we were doing.

Even though Mulberry Art Studios was incredibly busy with other events in the 4 or 5 months leading up to our wedding, they always made us feel as if we were the only event that mattered.

I have never felt so special as I did when April and her crew were tending to us.

Excellent Service, Wonderful Event, Beautiful Space!

Mulberry was absolutely amazing to work with for our wedding. There was nothing they weren't willing to do or to try for us and they also offered some great suggestions that made our wedding even more special. The week before our weddign they sat with us for an entire afternoon so we could plan out every detail. We did not have to think about or worry about one thing on the day of our wedding because they took care of every detail and every change. Not only were they great helping us prepare for our wedding, but they were so efficient on the day of our wedding as well. They did not get in the way of our celebration, but were still there to make everything run smoothly. We received SO many compliments on how beautiful our wedding was. I couldn't be happier for having chose Mulberry for our wedding venue.

Everyone tells us how beautiful our wedding was, and I have to say that most of the credit goes to Mulberry Art Studios. They did above and beyond what we asked for as far as decorations and setting up for the guests. The people who work at MAS are very friendly.

That being said, we do have some fairly major complaints with respect to the customer service at MAS.

First, trying to get a hold of anyone at MAS was very frustrating. The only times anyone got back to us in a timely manner (i.e. within 24-48 hours) was: 1) when we were initially considering to book with MAS, and 2) on the week of our wedding. Most of the time we had to call back several times before we got someone who could answer our questions. Or, they would tell us that someone would call us back, but no one ever would.

Second, there were several times when we set up appointments to meet with a specific person at MAS but they weren't there. They would either give us a proxy who could not actually help us with what we specifically said we needed, or no one was there to help us at all.

Finally, the process of paying for the event itself was very confusing and stressful. When we signed our contract no one properly explained the fee process. We were given one amount in our contract with little to no explanation as to what this amount meant. We found out after the wedding (when they sent us the bill) that the amount on the contract did not include the cost of some services and linens etc. That would have been fine, except that we felt blindsided when we realized we owed them several hundred dollars more than we expected.

Previously, we said they went above and beyond what we asked for. When we met with them, we asked for a certain number of linens. MAS used extra linens to make our wedding beautiful. They did not tell us this would incur additional charges. They also charged us for removing lights that we did not want, rather than telling us that it would cost us to take them away.

We took a very laid back approach to our wedding. All in all, we were very pleased with MAS on the day of our wedding. However, the details leading up to and following the wedding make it hard to give more than a mediocre review.

We do not believe that the problems we experienced with MAS were an attempt to take advantage of us. It seems more likely that the way MAS is run is very disorganized. They are very good at making a beautiful venue. It's the numbers, the schedules and the money that are poorly managed.

This was the most beautiful venue I could have asked for. They worked with us to create the perfect place. They were flexible with payments for us. They helped us save money with the amount of decorations they have that you can pull from. The only problems we had with them were the day of the ceremony. We didn't feel that they pulled through as the "wedding coordinators" once we got to the reception. There was a lot of confusion among all the vendors as they arrived. Things were misplaced. But had we known this and been more on top of it ourselves rather than depending on Mulberry, this place would have been absolutely flawless!
