Everything About This Venue Is Absolute Magic!
The projects Kat and Devon have done to the venue– the penny bar which is absolutely stunning; the wooden tables are so gorgeous, the brick accent wall that they painted each piece themselves is phenomenal and the beautiful patios outside with all the string lights are incredible. With the amount of time, energy and love they have put into 52 North, you just get this beautiful vibe and energy to your wedding to makes it even more magical.
We got the venue on Friday afternoon and had it until Sunday – this was perfect because my bridesmaids and I stayed in the upstairs loft the night before and we were able to get our hair and makeup done in the gorgeous makeup room there in the morning. I didn’t feel rushed about anything as there was no driving around to be done; everything was there at the venue. This included being able to set up the décor for our ceremony on the morning of our wedding.
We had an outside ceremony that was located on the venue grounds, surrounded by beautiful trees. Because the outside at 52 North is so stunning and gorgeous, we took all our photos there which saved us a lot of time and allowed us to enjoy our day more.
At our reception, we opened the bay doors slightly to be able to get a soft breeze throughout the reception area. Our guests loved the vintage truck that is on the grounds; many photos were taken in front of it. Our guests also loved socializing on the bar stools and barrels as well as the lounge furniture and used the patio area a lot.
At the end of the night, it was perfect because my husband and I stayed in the upstairs loft and were able to sleep in the next morning because 52 North takes down and cleans the reception space; this was INCLUDED in the package!
If you’re looking for a venue where you don’t have to stress and can instead enjoy your beautiful day, then 52 North Venue is exactly who you should choose!
We cannot express enough how much we love 52 North Venue.
From the bottom of our hearts thank you Kat and Devon for help making our wedding as magical as it was!
Queer Friendly and Gorgeous Venue
Stunning property for events, both inside and outside!
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.
Incredible wedding experience at 52 North Venue

They have truly created the perfect venue.
As they say a picture is worth a thousand words.
