We booked with the Cheney Place for our wedding, and so far have had really wonderful experiences working with all of the staff there. We have taken 3 tours total so far, and gotten valuable feedback about booking other vendors for catering, bar. All of the staff there have been professional, responsive, and really a pleasure to work with. We cannot wait to get married there and are very excited about our choice.

We absolutely loved The Cheney Place! The atmosphere of the whole building has a modern/vintage vibe to it which suited to both my older and younger guests. The staff was very helpful and organized! Anything that needed to be done they were there to do it. I couldn't be more impressed, it definitely made my wedding day to have it at The Cheney Place.

The Cheney Place is a unique venue and a beautiful blank canvas for your wedding. I received MANY compliments on my reception venue choice. The building is a little bit deceiving from the outside but when you walk in you will be very impressed. The crew is accommodating and friendly and also worked well with the other vendors. I am SO happy I went with The Cheney Place for my wedding reception!

We couldn't be happier that we chose The Cheney Place for our venue! The staff were extremely professional, flexible, and fun to work with. Audrey went above and beyond from day one to make sure our day was perfect. Our guests couldn't stop talking about how much they loved it! We would highly reccomend this venue to anyone looking!

Amazing venue and the most awesome staff! We loved hosting our wedding reception at the cheney...and so did our guests! We still are receiving complements on the reception! We were able to use both floors at the cheney for our cocktail area and they allowed us to get ready in the bridal suite early Saturday morning. This was perfect because we had a large wedding party! Audrey is the best to work with! Laying our the floor plan was something we dreaded and she made it easy on us! We gave her some thoughts and she gave us options...simple and easy! Highly recommend to everyone! I (the bride) want to do it all over again!

I cannot say enough how much I love The Cheney Place. The staff is incredible (responsive, helpful, informative, professional and just plain wonderful), the venue itself is gorgeous and we continue to receive compliments on our choice and all of that together makes for a magical evening.

I would recommend this place for any bride looking for a unique, classy and modern venue. The arcade style lighting, wooden beams, brick walls and open spacing make this the best place to let your creativity run wild.

The girls (Jenna and Audrey) are great! They helped us with every detail every step of the way and never made me feel like I asked too many questions (which I'm sure I did). We paid for the extra for an "All-Inclusive" package and I would say EVERYONE should do this, I don't know why you wouldn't. They take care of every bit of setup and tear down for you leaving you with a stress free wedding, it was INCREDIBLE!!

This was the best night of my life and I'm so thankful I chose The Cheney Place as the venue for our reception. It was absolutely stunning and it all felt very magical the whole time!!

It is a beautiful place to have a wedding. The venue is big with lots of character.
I struggled with the fact I talked to a different person every time. There was confusion on some of the details.

We choose The Cheney Place for many reasons: it's unique, factory meets modern look, convenient location, free parking, being able to choose whatever vendors we wanted, and having flexibility to make our reception really tailored to us.
It was great to work with their staff, everyone was very helpful and understanding, giving ideas and suggestions as needed. We had some hick-ups at the beginning, since they are still a newer venue and working out there pricing and policies. Once we talked with the owner about our concerns things went smoothly.
ADVICE: Read contracts carefully and watch for vendors trying to make changes after the fact!
The space itself is amazing and we had so many complements on it. The old factory windows let in gorgeous sunset lighting adding to the event atmosphere. They've done a great job mixing in new, modern design elements in with the old charms of the original factory building. The space is huge and flexible, so you can arrange tables and seating as needed to maximize the space and help control the follow of guests/event.
I would recommend The Cheney Place to couples looking for something unique and modern. It can be dressed up or dressed down to fit your style.
