“Saturday night was wonderful! Thank you so much for making Kacey and Brent’s wedding reception such a beautiful evening. The first thing I heard from guests was that the food was delicious! Your attention to detail was superb and the evening flowed effortlessly. I didn’t have to think about anything but dancing and having fun! The Cannery is a beautiful venue with a spacious layout – there is so much more room for a wedding reception at The Cannery than any other venue we considered. We received compliments from our guests all evening about how wonderful The Cannery is! I could not have asked for a better venue! The Cannery knows how to host a wedding reception!! It will be a while before I come down from my wedding high! Thank you again for everything – you, your staff and The Cannery are AWESOME!”
“I loved how everyone was so helpful and wanted it to be exactly what my husband and I expected. It’s very modern and looks amazing on the inside – so many places are out of date that you have bring in other vendors to spice it up! The bar is huge and in a separate room – BIG ADVANTAGE. And parking is also a huge advantage so they guest didn’t have to pay.
I would absolutely recommend The Cannery to any bride I encounter. It is a fabulous place and the people are so easy to work with. Everyone was willing to help out even if they were not my bridal attendant for the month and days leading up to the reception. The night of the wedding was exactly how I pictured it. Everything we had talked about was exactly how it was suppose to be. All around it was an amazing night.
I would like to thank Julie and everyone at The Cannery for making my husband and I’s day so special. It was everything and more. I can’t wait to see pictures and be able to relive our special day.”
“I have been to 3 very different events at the Cannery; a silent auction for charity, awards banquet, and a wedding reception. I was able to see the versatility of the Cannery and was impressed every time. Each event was set up so different that it would be hard to tell that it was the same place if I didn’t know any better. The actual venue is beautiful. I love the pinkish purple lighting that goes up the white walls for a posh look.”
“I’ve been to The Cannery for a few weddings and events and I have to say this space is great. I would highly suggest this space if you have 100-300 people…this is a great space for a wedding reception!”

“Everyone was very helpful and communicated throughout the entire process. My event was treated as though it was the only wedding happening in the city. The Cannery team was so personable and accomodating; they paid attention to every detail and made sure everything was perfect for my special day. The bar was second to none, and the food was the best anyone had ever had at a wedding (and that’s coming from ALL of my guests)! Oh – and the lounge was perfect for those who wanted to sit and chat. My guests loved the space and the parking and valet was so convenient! I would definitely recommend the Cannery for any event. Thank you for making this special day PERFECT!”
