Stunning property for events, both inside and outside!
Everything about this venue was perfect for us!Sent on 02/02/2021
The outdoors area is surrounded by beautiful trees and well maintained grass, making it perfect for the ceremony and photos both before and after. From there, we planned to move right into the reception portion of the evening. We figured that being able to stay on the property for both the ceremony and reception was ideal.
When booking a venue, I was also adamant that I wanted something light and airy. 52 North Venue set the perfect backdrop for this with its large garage style windows letting in plenty of natural light, along with the white walls and concrete floors. It also has unique lighting making and a brick wall making it stand out even more.
Lastly, the convenience of the attached suite for myself and the bridesmaids to get ready in the day of was perfect as there were even separate spots for the ladies to have their hair and make up done.
In the end, we rescheduled our wedding twice at this venue due to covid restrictions before eventually deciding to elope at our family cabin. However, the owners (Kat and Devon), were more than flexible throughout the entire process. We will look forward to re-booking this venue in the future for an anniversary party so our guests and us can really celebrate the marriage.

Amazing Venue and Owners
I’m not sure how to write a review that will possibly cover how awesome Kat & Devon (and the venue) are. We booked with 52 North Venue after downsizing our wedding due to the pandemic, and are so glad that we did.
First off, Kat and Devon are extremely personable and professional. They are incredibly responsive and constantly put us at ease during the planning process. They worked hard to offer different options or solutions to the questions I asked. Throughout the wedding process, they were readily available and helped to make our day run smoothly. After our wedding, we even had many guests talk about how kind, friendly and helpful they were.
Secondly, the venue is absolutely stunning and has everything you could need. The bridal suite is beautiful and provides a great space to get ready in. We loved being able to stay there the night of the wedding - it made the day easier having one common place to set up as a ‘home base.’ The ceremony space is awesome and we were able to get a majority of our photos on site. The reception space is also beautiful and requires little decor. We had multiple guests comment on how unique and pretty it was.
If you are planning a wedding, book with 52 North Venue. You will not regret it!Sent on 29/07/2020

Queer Friendly and Gorgeous Venue
52 North Venue was the perfect location for our elopement! As a queer couple, we appreciated every effort that Kat and Dev took to make the entire experience suited to us. From the very start they were supportive and enthusiastic about our future marriage and the level of comfort that we felt with them is what ultimately encouraged us to choose their venue. With just our immediate family present, we said I do in front of the picture perfect brick wall. We were in awe of how this huge space transformed into an intimate space that met our needs perfectly. We started our day with setting up the dining area, the aisle and the bar which took barely any time at all because the space has so much character on its own! After setting up the reception space, we all headed upstairs and got ready in the suite which was exactly what we needed for the entire family to comfortably prepare for the rest of the day. When we got up there we found so many thoughtful touches that meant the world to us! The ceremony was everything we dreamed of with the industrial yet cozy atmosphere. After the ceremony we were able to take all of our wedding photos in the trees and throughout the venue. Not having to leave the location to get beautiful photos was so convenient. Once the wedding formalities were finished we had an outdoor games tournament with our families. Thanks to the outdoor set up we were able to enjoy the evening under twinkling lights! The next day we had our family back to the upstairs suite to enjoy brunch together before packing up and heading out. Thank you, thank you, thank you Kat and Dev for everything! We cannot recommend 52 North Venue enough, it has everything that you need for a beautiful flow from getting ready to relaxing in a gorgeous tub at the end of the night. Book them for your next event, you won’t regret it!Sent on 21/08/2020
