The Collins off Main

Hello Dazzled!

You want your wedding to be everything you’ve ever dreamed of—an experience you and your guests will rave about for years.

 

But the first step is often the hardest: Choosing the just-right venue for your just-right day.

 

  • Some venues have a vibe that’s so niche there’s no room for “you.” 

  • Others have plenty of possibilities, but they leave the heavy lifting (figuratively and literally) to you.

  • And, if you’re lucky enough to find a “practically perfect” space within your budget, beware: Most are all too happy to nickel and dime you to death. 

 

Settling for a not-quite-right venue takes all the joy out of planning for your big day.

Your anticipation gets clouded over by frustration,and your “I can’t wait!” is tainted by “Oh well.”

This is your wedding day we’re talking about!
Every detail should be "just so".

Of all the decisions you’re making right now, this one’s big!

You want everything to look and feel just right—both in the moment and decades from now as you’re looking through your wedding album.

At The Collins Off Main, we go the extra mile to help bring your Pinterest boards to life—down to the very last detail.

My husband and I got married at this venue last year, and boy, were we thankful to have found this venue through social media! We were in love with the venue since the first meeting with Amy Collins; from the venue's vibe of "California Boho", the many services that come with the venue like the "Something Borrowed" closet, and Amy herself. We were planning our wedding within 4 months, which sounds completely crazy, but Amy helped us believe that it's possible, and it sure was. As Amy is a coordinator and owner, she provided us solid recommendations for vendors, helped us communicate with them after booking, and made my ideas from Pinterest come to reality. We're so thankful for her expertise, and we took a lot of her advice in order to make our wedding day go so smoothly! Lastly, whenever our guests talk about their wedding, they're constantly raving about the venue, and how it had everything for everyone. We cannot say enough how beautiful this venue is without breaking the bank. I would recommend this venue to ANYONE who is looking into a venue that offers so much. Thank you Amy Collins and crew!

We had our wedding at The Collins in September 2021. We actually booked it kind of last minute after we started to have covid-related issues with our original venue. I am SO GLAD we found this place and I cannot recommend it enough. Our guests still rave about it. Amy and her staff went above and beyond to make every detail perfect. Not only is the space beautiful but there's so many cool perks and I know they've added so much more since September 2021. These were a few of our favorite things: -Amazing outdoor space with furniture and fire pits (guests LOVED it) -Flexibility to work with your own vendors -The loft apartment for 2 nights/getting ready. -Something borrowed closet (helped us save a lot of $$ on decor) -Champagne wall BOOK THIS VENUE. You will not be disappointed.

I cannot say enough good things about Amy and the Collins off Main. She worked tirelessly to give me the wedding of my dreams- all in the midst of a global pandemic! Her staff were so friendly, and I did not spend one minute of my wedding worried about things that needed to be done because she was so on top of things. You will not regret having your wedding here- Amy truly has thought of every little detail in her space that you could possibly need in a wedding venue. Not to mention she is a wonderful human being and truly treats you as if you are her own daughter getting married. You will not be disappointed

On a day with no do-overs, you shouldn’t have to worry about a single detail.

We Promise

  • Flat-rate fees—so you don’t have to fear your final bill.Most venues will woo you with middle-of-the-road pricing and then surprise you with hidden fees and upgrades. The price we publish is the price you pay. Period. And you won’t believe what’s included!

  • On-trend oversight—so your wedding is Instagram-ready.Whether you have dozens of Pinterest boards or you have only the vaguest idea of what you want, you can lean on our award-winning event designer for ongoing inspiration (and the occasional reality check). Plus, you get access to our industry-leading planning software and a closet packed with the latest decor for free.

  • Day-of coordination—so you can soak up every moment.You can plan your own wedding, but you shouldn’t run it. When your big day arrives, we’ll make sure all the details are handled. That way you can focus on what matters most: celebrating your new adventure together. Our team even creates an in-the-moment Instagram reel you can see and share the very next day.
