Love Big, Celebrate Small.

proud to be a

kind words from our happy couples


At The Parlour, we bring people TOGETHER- around the table, around ideas, around creativity. Here, we celebrate love, community, diversity, and supreme acts of kindness. We believe that the best kind of love is the one that is authentic, vulnerable, non-judgmental, and most of all, SHARED. We believe you should love who you love- as long as you do so BIG and with an open heart. We founded this business on connectedness, and like our sign on the front door says, "May all who enter as guests, leave as friends." Because to us, LOVE BIG means LOVE ALL. 
SO, WELCOME... to The Parlour.

The most amazing experience at The Parlour.
We cannot say enough amazing things about the entire Parlour team! From the minute we visited the venue the first time, all the way through the planning process, COVID delays, and finally celebrating at their gorgeous venue, they were there for us. The Parlour will always hold a special place in our hearts! Can't recommend them highly enough!
 –Lea & Max

Best venue that ever was.
When my fiance and I toured The Parlour, we just instantly knew it was the one. It was the only venue we toured, and we booked it the same day and never looked back, and we weren’t even engaged yet! As someone who cares a lot about attention to detail, they really have thought of everything.     –Amelia & Chris

A Perfect MicroWedding Spot
We stumbled upon them while watching the news! Due to COVID, they were doing a special for micro-weddings, and we couldn't resist contacting them. We immediately knew this was the space for us. They were so accommodating and amazing to work with. I am so happy we went with them and recommend them if you are looking to elope or have a smaller wedding!      –Samantha & Juan

A Dream Venue!
We are SO happy that we chose the Parlour as our wedding venue!
So many of our guests commented on how stunning the venue was, and the space was absolutely perfect for our smaller guest count while still making our wedding feel big and grand. When you reach out to vendors, everyone will comment on how wonderful the owners and staff are at the Parlour—everyone loves working with them. Our wedding truly felt like a fairytale, and we know it’s because we chose the Parlour as our venue. We will forever recommend them!   –Alison & Eric

The Most Perfect Day.
We got married at The Parlour in June 2021 and it was everything we wanted and more. The whole planning process was so easy thanks to the Parlour team. We used many of the venue's recommended vendors and curated the most perfect group to make our wedding daydreams a reality. On the day of our wedding, every detail was absolutely perfect, with no effort or stress from us. We greatly enjoyed and appreciated our guest count of 100, as we were able to celebrate intimately with all of our guests. The space is so versatile; from the chapel to the courtyard and the garden, you're left wanting for nothing. We could not recommend The Parlour more for what was truly the best day of our lives. -Brennan & Davis

As soon as we got out of the car, we knew this was the perfect venue. She wanted intimate, and the Parlour is precisely that. Not only did they give great advice about the venue, but they also gave fantastic recommendations for other vendors we would need. We never felt we were "customers," but that we were dealing with folks who genuinely wanted to help bring my daughter's vision into reality. As a dad who had no experience with an event like this, I appreciate so much that they enabled me to give my baby girl the wedding she had always wanted.     –Wayne Stephenson

My new husband and I hosted our wedding at The Parlour at Manns Chapel. From start to finish it was an amazing experience. Not only is the space gorgeous, welcoming and current – but also a true work of art. These ladies have put their heart and souls into this space and it shows! We have already referred The Parlour at Manns Chapel to numerous people; we cannot praise them enough.    –Dara & Thomas
