This is a great venue for a wedding reception. Crystal made everything very easy and straightforward. We were able to use our own caterer and provide our own drinks which helped a lot on the cost of our reception. Everything worked great and we had no issues. We also received our damage deposit within a week of our reception.

You can't go wrong with the Apothecary. You can choose your own catering service seperately. We had our wedding ceremony there, then the reception. Many people expressed to us that it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to because it was so relaxed and fun. Part of that is the venue. We had an unforgettable time and loved the loft.

We were married in Vermont this summer (and also live in Vermont) and wanted to have a reception in Nebraska to celebrate with family who could not attend the wedding. Planning the reception from across the country was easier than I thought it would be because Crystal was so great to work with. This place is an incredible value, especially considering you can bring in your own food and alcohol - that saved us a ton of money! We used the North Apothecary Loft and it was perfect for us! The Loft is beautiful with wood beams and exposed brick, plus the view you get of the Haymarket from the 5th floor! All of our guests complimented the venue. We loved it!

Our wedding turned out fabulous and the location was wonderful! All of our out of town family stayed at the Holiday Inn Downtown and is literally a 2 min walk to the Apothecary building. We chose the North Loft and made for a very unique setting for our wedding...I had non stop compliments! You must get the wedding package...you get the room from Noon on Friday till Noon on Sunday which gives you ample time to set up and take down all your decor. (We also did our rehearsal on Friday night) And did I mention the suite attached that has a queen sized bed and a Jacuzzi tub!? Amazing!

We also booked our honeymoon trip to Cancun through the Apothecary and got all the VIP treatment while we were in Mexico! Great value and you won't regret it! We plan on booking our next trip through them as well!

We mainly worked with Crystal but the entire staff is wonderful :) I have ZERO complaints!
