Are you looking for a great wedding venues in louisville ky? The venue is just across the Bridge in IN – but you can get a great view of the Louisville skyline! Of course you can rent out the entire space for your ceremony, getting ready, ect! I’ve also seen Church ceremonies and the Refinery used as just a reception space. Either is a great way to celebrate your wedding day. They have a large outdoor courtyard for those perfect summer nights, or bonfires for those chilly fall/winter weddings. There is also a beautiful greenery wall to use as the backdrop to your outdoor ceremony if you get married in the courtyard.
Spaces: The Refinery North, TheRefinery South, The Courtyard, or all three!
Number of guests:
Refinery North: 350 guests seated for dinner
Refinery South: 410 guests seated for dinner
Courtyard: 408 guests in theater-style seating
Decor: Extensive decor that you can rent to use. more details from their website here.
I’ve been lucky enough to shoot here for photo and video numerous times, and I have to say it is the perfect hidden gem that is close to the city, but not right in the downtown action. There are many great photo locations, for instance, the white exposed brick walls on the outside make for great clean portraits. There is also a small area close to the venue (about a half mile) is right on the river looking to the Louisville skyline, that is also a great backdrop to photos.
The Refinery North also has a bridal suite located upstairs to put your bags, get ready, and hangout. I’ve shot entire weddings here and also just Wedding receptions and its one of the best wedding venues close Louisville ky! With the location being so central, it’s a short drive from a lot of churches in Louisville and other areas to take your portraits if you dont want the urban feel.
The staff at the is always wonderful, I would recommend a wedding coordinator if you are stressed out with planning. That way they can handle all your vendors, timelines, and make sure everyone is where they need to be. I’ve also seen aunts as same day coordinators to make sure that your day will go smoothly! You can never go wrong with having someone there to help all your vendors and you out!
