NEW Coeur d’ Alene Venue: The Blackwell House

Ok girls, I’ve got a sweet venue lead for you today! One of the hottest new Coeur d’ Alene wedding venues is The Blackwell House, located in the heart of downtown Coeur d’ Alene. The Blackwell is a recently revamped historic mansion which perfectly marries modern elegance with historic charm. Some facts…

This is a LUXURY boutique hotel.

This is a venue with historic CHARACTER.

This is a venue with FLEXIBILITY (like choosing your own caterer, renting the whole house for a weekend or using it for a rehearsal dinner, etc).

Alisa Lewis Event Design offers FULL coordination and design packages for Blackwell House clients (!!!).

This is a BUDGET friendly venue…for now!

The Blackwell has very affordable wedding packages because it’s brand new on the Spokane area wedding scene, but my guess would be that it will soon become one of the premier venues in the area, so act fast!

Here is an interview with owner, Morgen….
