10/13/18 Wedding--5 stars across the board.

Finding this venue and having our wedding here was a great example of God always provides. And its always BETTER than we could have imagined. We had an Oct 13, 2018 date and our first venue cancelled ... Read more our date on us 6 months before our wedding. We were horrified. I remember going to a business event at the Jiddi Space and called them and initially they were booked. I remember thinking it would be so beautiful to get married in downtown Raleigh and I was bummed. Literally 2 days later, Devan calls me and tells me that their Oct 13 booking cancelled and we could have the date. It was such an amazing venue and I wish we had booked from the very beginning. The responsiveness was excellent. I planned this entire wedding out of state (CT to NC) and didn't get to meet Devan until two days before b/c of weather delays. She was amazing. The venue is also excellent being downtown, convenient for guests with parking, and lovely in an industrial/rustic way. Our guests loved the food and the service. The space was plenty for a little over 100 guests. Our decor blended beautifully with the venue and the whole night was just so much fun. Really the value put me at ease. You have to pick between Sitti and Gravy but both are so great that I feel lucky we got Sitti catering. So much is included with the space and we were able to stay on our budget and just have the best time. I'm so glad to that for future anniversaries I can eat what I had on my wedding night (I unfortunately didn't get to eat much but brides never do).
