What Couples are Saying:

“My husband and I got married this past Saturday at the Covenant and everything just moved so smoothly. We had the pleasure to work with Sydney and she was just phenomenal. The communication was spot on to make sure our day was perfect. This venue is beyond beautiful and is so roomy if you have a lot of guests. I would highly recommend this venue in a heart beat!” – Stephanie M

 

“One of the wedding facebook groups brought us to our venue. After posting a list of what we were looking for, someone kindly suggested we check it out. I am so thankful they recommended it. The venue speaks for itself, it is beautiful and breathtaking when walking in. There is character, charm, history, and elegance all wrapped up in the perfect combination. The bridal suite (3 rooms in total) on the second floor of the attached Murray Mansion is unlike any bridal suite out there. One of the reasons we chose this venue was we didn’t want the stress of worrying about weather being a factor regarding ceremony, photos, etc. The venue is designed to where if you did not take one single photo outside you would not be disappointed at all. There are numerous intentional spaces, backdrops, and settings that have been created where you want to take photos inside because of the stunning atmosphere. There are multiple mural walls, bright colored sofas, intricate original detailing, and outstanding ceremony/reception ceiling with balcony. The other main reasons we chose the venue were: staff, food, and set-up/take down. The staff is top notch. We primarily worked with Hannah as well as Sydney. On your wedding day you want to feel like the venue is organized and controlled. Hannah knows exactly what she is doing and was with us every step of the way during our planning. There was no question too big or too small and we were always given a direct honest answer. Although personal, Hannah is there to do her job of making sure the venue and staff provide the best service they can for your special day and that’s what we needed and wanted from a venue. Although there are multiple weddings booked throughout the year I always felt like it was “just our wedding” when visiting and having our planning meetings. Our concept, questions, ideas, and requests were focused on as if it was the only wedding. That says a lot because this means as a venue they want your vision to be executed, not what they like, what other couples like, or what another venue is doing. When we started our venue search we realized quickly how we did not want to be bothered with things like “who is bringing the forks, linens, ice, glasses”. The Covenant is owned by a catering company so all the food and beverage is taken care of in house. The kitchen is never seen by guests and the food is hand delivered. As a couple booked at the venue you are invited to a tasting party with all other booked couples to select your food options. The food is high quality and not your typical wedding food at all. Lastly, and although not most importantly but possibly most valuable regarding stress is the venue handles ALL set-up and tear down of decor. I cannot count how many posts I see in these groups where family members are having to work the day of the wedding or Brides are having to shell out extra money to hire someone to do these tasks and how stressful this is. My parents were able to literally drop off all the decor and when we showed up for our rehearsal the entire venue was set up (minus fresh floral which came the day of). There are endless options for venues however if you are looking for a classy, elegant, fun, creative, historic, detailed, and professional bright venue The Covenant At Murray Mansion is it.” – Chelsea A

 

“Everything was absolutely incredible. From the food, service, atmosphere, drinks, venue, etc., it was more than we could have ever dreamt of for our special day. We had the privilege of working with Hanni, Hannah and the team, and we could not be more complimentary of how detail-oriented, collaborative and helpful they were, all while being so kind and compassionate to us and our families. If you are considering the event space, especially after seeing how stunning it is (and yes, it is even more beautiful in person), the level of personal touch and thoughtfulness that this team provides will be the icing on the cake! We got married on January 21, 2023 with 175 guests. The feedback from the guests has been overwhelmingly outstanding: cocktail hour, food, Photo Booth, music, facilities, etc. Memories that will be cherished forever by many were made here, thanks to this amazing Covenant Team who made it all possible!” -Abby J
