MEET THE VENUE MANAGER
Nice to meet you! I'm Jessica Pedraza, the Venue Manager at UNION. I fell in love with events during my first job in high school and have since explored every niche of the industry. Being the first stop on the wedding planning journey, I'm able to help guide couples through the many details as they prepare for their special day, and watch their vision become a reality!
This venue is so unique and beautiful! We booked it because of the beautiful brick and wooden tables. We knew we would not need a ton of decorations since the venue itself was breathtaking. It has a speakeasy in the basement where we held our cocktail hour and we were able to take all of our pictures on the roof which has a wonderful view of the city! We love this venue because they have a list of vendors you could use or use your own! It was very flexible with what we were wanting! You also get the entire venue for 24 hours which makes everything less stressful! There is not need for rentals for chairs or tables and minimal table cloths are only needed if you utilize the plastic folding tables that also come with your package. The staff at UNION are so easy to work with and so kind! They are sure to stay on top of you with any documentation you are missing and also offer services such as planning and gathering insurance from all vendors. They really just take care of you and ensure you night is memorable! Loved this venue so so much!
I recently had my wedding at Union, and it was absolutely magical. The space has unlimited options for how you want your big day to be laid out, and the speakeasy is a perfect place for cocktail hour! I also chose to have their in-house planning services to help me prepare for my wedding. Ladies - this is the best decision you will ever make. Jessica and Ashtyn made the planning process easy, manageable and ensured our wedding went off without a hitch. They communicated with my vendors and made sure our day was 100% stress free! I cannot say enough amazing things about Union and their planning team, but I promise if you choose them for your event, you will not be disappointed!
My husband and I got married at the UNION back at the beginning of June. I will start off by saying this was our BEST decision. We absolutely loved the space. It was plenty big to hold our family and friends and to never feel on top of each other. It allowed us to have the ceremony and reception we dreamed of. We also chose to work with Jessica and Ashtyn to help us plan, and let me tell you, they were a saving grace. They helped plan, coordinate with vendors, and made the day of go as smoothly as we could've asked for. They met with us monthly and walked us through step by step in the planning process and were present the whole day of helping organize the vendors, setting up the space, and helping with the bridal party. We seriously could not have done this without them. It allowed my husband and myself to relax and have so much fun the day of by not having to worry about the behind the scenes things. They were so kind and able to put together the dream vision I had in my head for the wedding. I couldn't recommend the space and their services more. We have received nothing but amazing feedback from friends and family about how much fun our wedding was which was the exact thing we wanted. It was seriously the best day and we will forever be grateful for the UNION!!
