I’ve been literally stalking the Historic Post Office’s instagram page ever since I first discovered them earlier this year. I’m obsessed with architecture, urban venues and white spaces. This venue had the potential to hit all three things that inspire my artistic fancy… and friends, it does not disappoint.
It was an absolute blessing to do a styled shoot to help the Historic Post Office with some basic promotional material earlier this year. Kelsey, the manager, threw together the shoot in just about a week by rounding up some local vendors to show off the incredible space. This included my best friend, Maria and her husband as the models which of course just made for an even more fun photographing experience. The venue wasn’t finished at that point, but it was still absolutely gorgeous. HPO is incredible, historic charm with modern conveniences.
The actual grand opening blew me out of the water. The team behind the venue did an incredible job dreaming, scheming and renovating to make the space look exactly like they envisioned it. When you walk in, there is a grand ballroom that is just incredible with beautiful dark hardwood floors. They are breathtaking. The walls are white with some brick walls as well that preserve the historic feel while giving each bride a blank canvas to use to make the space her own. There is also a cocktail side area with beautiful white brick and incredible windows that you can see from the outside
At the grand opening, vendors went all out, bringing their best and working together to deck the venue out as if it were decorated for a normal wedding. Shades of burgundy, blush and peach were everywhere, and it was simply gorgeous. Flowers, caterers, furniture rentals, candles and even a bride and a groom with full hair and makeup made the night unforgettable. There were plenty of tables set up, along with a head table that was set up with farmhouse tables and tons of florals. There are stairs to the mezzanine that could be used for whatever a bride could dream up! More tables, a cocktail hour, a ceremony, really, anything at all! There’s also an amazing view of the ballroom from the second level.
It was an honor to rub elbows with some of the best in the business, and I’m thankful for all the friends I was able to catch up on. Any bride that ends up choosing the Historic Post Office for her wedding is definitely in for a treat!
