I absolutely loved having my wedding and recpetion at the Pointe! Anna (coordinator) was so very helpful and responsive to all of our needs. They worked hard to ensure my "vision" was implemented and I got so many compliments on the venue! It is such a gorgeous spot and has so much character! I could not be more happy with The Pointe! I highly recommend the venue.

Our daughter and her husband selected The Pointe as their Venue for their wedding and reception. The staff was very easy to work with and very accommodating throughout the planning stages. They were very helpful and provided excellent service the day of the ceremony. We had many compliments and wonderful feedback from the guests who attended.

Anna and Barrett at The Pointe were amazing to work with and made our experience with the venue a great one. When we toured The Pointe, we knew it was the venue we wanted for our wedding. Anna was AMAZING during the planning process, answering all of my emails and calls promptly and meeting with me twice to discuss my vision and plan for the space.

Barrett accommodated us by letting us bring in our decor the day before the wedding and store it in his office to be prepared, since there was an event going on that Friday. Anna was there throughout the entire reception, and even helped our coordinator pack up and clean the space. She was a joy to work with and an amazing point of contact!

The Pointe is an amazing venue, and we would highly recommend it to anyone planning a wedding or event!

Everything was great. Staff was very helpful and willing to work with us. The only suggestion is making a very specific contact person for the bride. I was confused in the beginning of the process on who I was supposed to be in touch with if I had a question. Once Anna was my main contact person everything was answered right away.

We absolutely loved having our wedding at The Pointe. The space is very unique and fit all our needs. We were able to fit 200 people comfortably in both the atrium and barrel room for the reception. The guests loved the rustic feel of the floors and exposed beams and windows. Since most guests were from the area it was nice to have a space that most people hadn't been to yet.

Anna and Barrett were very flexible with our needs and pretty much let us do anything we asked. They were helpful in letting us know what had worked in the past and made sure we didn't forget any detail. We rented chairs and tables from The Pointe and they matched great with the floors. They also let my decorator in the day before to set up the reception space and this was very nice to see at rehearsal. Anna was there the day of meeting with all the vendors making sure our wishes were executed correctly.

The Bridal suite was a great place to decompress before the walk down the aisle. However, the sole complaint we had was the lack of space designated for the groom to hang out prior to the wedding. It sounded like that was a work in progress and probably won't be an issue in the future.

All in all we couldn't be happier with our decision to have our wedding at The Pointe! If you are looking for a unique venue that gives you the freedom to make it your own with great people to help make your day special, you've found your place!

It was a pleasure to work with Barret and Anna for my daughter's wedding reception. The Pointe is a beautiful venue that manages to capture the edgy feeling of a loft and mix it perfectly with the old hardwood floors and huge windows. So glad we found The Pointe!

Working with the staff was wonderful and Anna was there the day of the wedding to make sure everything was going perfect. I couldn't have asked for a better venue that was really affordable and beautiful.

The Pointe is very flexible to work with. I was able to use whatever caterer I wished, bring in my own alcohol and, decorate how I wanted. The space itself cannot be beat especially for the price! I had my ceremony AND reception there and got so many compliments. You can adapt the space into whatever "feel" you want, its like a blank canvas so possibilities are endless. The best part is you can rent your tables and chairs from them for as much or less then other vendors and you don't have to stress about set up/tear down. They also let me set up the reception area the Friday before the wedding. This isn't guaranteed but if no one is using the space they will allow it.
My only gripe is sometimes it would take a while for them to get back to me but it all worked out in the end and I would have it there again for my next wedding. Just kidding!

Anna Martin was the most amazing person to deal with. She was extremely helpful when she could be because she was only there part time. Unfortunately for us, they were in the middle of hiring a full time person at the time of our event, so responses to our emails and calls took a while. The venue was beautiful and I am confident that with a full time event planner, someone else would have zero trouble. They were very flexible with decorating and allowed us to decorate the night before our event, which was a huge load off of our shoulders. Our guests raved about how beautiful the venue was and our photographer thoroughly enjoyed shooting there.

The Pointe is a gorgeous and unique venue! If you are looking for a place that is a little less mainstream and allows for your creativity -- then please consider The Pointe. We had just at 200 people at our wedding and everyone fit comfortably in the Atrium for the ceremony and in the Barrel Room for the reception. Communicating with The Pointe wedding correspondent was sometimes difficult as she was very unavailable during the week due to her class schedule. This only became stressful when it was within 14 days of the wedding. My parents and I did, however, have plenty of opportunity to walk in and out of The Pointe during regular business hours to plan/envision. We also had plenty of time the days before the wedding to decorate. Overall - our wedding was gorgeous and unique and we got so many compliments from our guests!

The Pointe is a beautiful space but it has been a while since anyone reviewed it. It was so hard to get ahold of anyone from the venue. Very disappointed bc when we did our final walk thru of the space on Thursday before the event the bar linens(which they provide) were very badly stained. We were told they would be replaced. On Friday we stopped by again still stained and told it would get taken care of by the next day. On Saturday we had to run out to by a linen to drape over the bars bc they were not replaced. They didnt do it because "it just wasn't feasible with what it would cost to replace them."...Seriously!!!???? A venue doesn't have an extra $100 to buy some fresh linens for their bar....beautiful place but small things like that are very frustrating when you comply with a venues nit picky rules.

The Pointe responded with the following comments:

We are sorry that you were unhappy with your event due to the linens on the bar. We did replace the linens with clean linens, however your day of coordinator indicated that she had extra linens from your rental company that she would like us to use. It was our understanding that she did not have to buy linens for the bars. Also, after talking to you at the end of your event you did not acknowledge any displeasure with The Pointe or your business with The Pointe. We are sorry that you feel so negatively and we hope that despite this, you were able to enjoy your event.
