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.

The Cheney Place is an amazing spot to host any event! The space has a great balance of rustic and modern elements which makes it very unique and full of character! The staff (specifically Audrey) is great to work with as she consistently put my detail-oriented brain at ease. She responded quickly and had the place set up exactly how I imagined it (actually, better!). Once we arrived there for our reception, we knew immediately that they had everything under control and we didn't have to worry about a thing. We are SO happy we went with TCP for our reception and would recommend this venue to anyone!

I knew I wanted a rustic feel for my wedding reception and The Cheney Place provided just that. We chose to pay a little more for the all-inclusive package which meant that they did all of the setup and take down for the reception. Definitely worth it. It is a beautiful space and the reception turned out better than I could have imagined. Audrey was very quick to resond to any questions I had and was easy to work with. Due to weather, we weren't able to take any pictures outside on the day of the wedding so we did pictures on the second floor of The Cheney Place and they turned out wonderful!

The Cheney Place is an amazing place to host your wedding reception. The staff is so accommodating and was always easy to communicate with and answering my questions. The space is an old warehouse so it has a very rustic feel to it where you are able to customize it the way you want it--you pick all of your own vendors. We had a winter wedding where we had a shuttle service and we were able to decorate the venue the day before. Everyone complimented on the warm feel of The Cheney Place. I couldn't be happier to have had my wedding reception there. Thanks again!

Audrey and Aleece were the easiest to work with. They went out of their way to accommodate us the whole weekend. The venue is beautiful and has so much character. My guests continue to talk about the atmosphere and how neat the building was from our wedding night. I have no complaints and would highly recommend using them :)
