The Hidden Abbey
If you’re like our owner, you love a good about us story! Our story began from something that was just a dream and finally came true for our owner, Amy Beth Williamson. She dreamt of finding a beautiful space to welcome all to come host their special events and she found that in the formally known venue of The Cross Eyed Moose. With the knowledge she had gained from 8 years in the wedding industry as a stationer and day of coordinator, Amy Beth hopes to provide a customer experience that will create memories that will last a lifetime!
What we love about the space is that you can envision what the space looked like when it was originally a church, but has all the updates for a modern day wedding or special event. Our Sanctuary features a vaulted ceiling with the original windows from the 1965 build, a large, stone-faced LED-lit bar, and a stage that is a great spot for your wedding ceremony, sweetheart table, or guest(s) of honor.
The lower level features our spacious, modern industrial event space that has an 16 foot long bar with a two-way gas fireplace and framed with two beautiful wood built-ins that can showcase photos or a specialty drink for your event. Not only does this space has a great entertainment area, it also has access to our kitchen that boosts a oversized serving window that is great for caterers to use.
Also located in our lower level are our bridal dressing rooms. Our brides dressing room is best described as a modern chic space that features a gorgeous wood vanity with a wall length mirror and bright lighting that is the ideal space for your make-up artist and hair stylist to setup their gear. It also has smaller vanity areas for any touch ups that may be needed and an amazing accent wall that is the perfect place for a photo opt! The grooms room features a laid back vibe with a small bar, 55″ TV, and seating that will allow any groom and his groomsmen a space to relax and get dressed on-site.
One of our most unique spaces are our one-bedroom overnight suites that can sleep up to 4 people. Both provide a small living room area that has a queen size sleeper sofa and Smart HD TV. Each suite has a kitchenette that will allow you a place to either eat a late night snack or an early morning breakfast. Our bathrooms are equipped with a small vanity and built in shower and the bedrooms have a queen size bed with closet space. It is the best place to end your night without the hassle of having to drive to the closest hotel that is 15 minutes away.
We hope that you learned a little more about us and will come see our space and celebrate all of life’s most important events with us!
Whether you’re planning a large wedding reception or a small intimate dinner for your family and friends, we’ve got the ideal venue for you.
