What Are our couples saying?

I can't say enough about Mercantile Hall! We got engaged in August of 2019 and picked our date of August 2021. Throughout all of the craziness of COVID, when I'm sure that they had a million other issues/things to think about, Mercantile kept in contact with us and ensured that we felt comfortable with any questions that we had. From the beginning, Stephanie and her team were the obvious choice for us - their energy, their support, and the overall style of the venue were a no brainer for us. I am so glad we made that choice. Our guests were so impressed by the intimate feeling of the space, the romantic vibe of the reception, and the service that our coordinator provided (we did opt in for the coordinator package - so worth it in my opinion!). The whole experience made me want to get married again and again!
We are so happy that we picked Mercantile Hall for our wedding venue! We started wedding planning right when the pandemic started and did a tour of the space via zoom and LOVED it! Even over the computer screen we could tell how special this space was. The day of the wedding our coordinator made sure everything ran as smooth as possible. We also loved that they had a bar package and an in-house DJ (Merc Sound) which made planning so much easier. It was a one-stop shop for all our wedding needs! We had our ceremony outside in the urb garden and used Susanna for cocktail hour, which our guests loved. It was the perfect space to celebrate our love and would recommend this venue to anyone getting married!
Mercantile Hall was my dream location even before I got engaged. I am not the barn or hall type person. Very urban, yet small town feel is my favorite. Once I stepped foot inside Merc, I knew I didn't need to look anywhere else. So warm and inviting, I felt like this was the perfect venue for me. Having Stephanie as day of coordinator, and all the Merc staff, made my day a breeze! I would highly recommend spending a little extra so that you can show up and just be the bride with no headaches. I am more than happy with how my day turned out and wouldn't have had it any other way. Thank you!
