Did you just get engaged over the holidays?! Congrats!

Join us at Brewhemia so we can celebrate your engagement, learn more about you and what you’re looking for in a venue.

This Wedding Open House is for couples, their close family members who are pertinent to their planning process, and vendors who are looking to connect with couples. We’ll go over information in regards to what the venue offers and answer any questions you may have.

If you’re wanting to see the transformation and are curious about the space that’s great! We recommend you come to our large Open House in March (more information coming soon!).

We’re looking forward to meeting you!

Sip & Plant: Meet Your Next Houseplant @ moss

Hey there houseplant, nice to meet you. Take some time to get to know your new houseplants. Have a drink and talk about the future, our hopes and dreams and light and water needs. Repot your new plant friend with human friends. A wonderful introduction to helping houseplants thrive in your home or office. We’ll discover the hidden language of plant requirements (what does indirect bright and slightly moist actually mean). We’ll share plant stories. We’ll play with a compass to see how direction affects the light in our homes. It’s an experience with friends and plants.

Sip and plant workshops include a beverage and all the materials needed to complete the workshop. Pre-registration is required – ticket sales close 2 days prior to the workshop (get your tickets early). $30
