Our Story

It all started with a wedding.

Kristie Patterson, who had been running her housing development company for the past 15 years, recognized a significant need in the market when her daughter, Lauren, became engaged and was searching for wedding venues. Lauren could not seem to find the non-traditional, industrial style venue she was dreaming of. Kristie realized that her daughter wasn’t alone; there were many clients looking for a non-traditional event venue flexible enough to accommodate all kinds of functions as well as professionally operated and equipped with modern amenities. 

With style in mind, Kristie began her search for the perfect commercial property. In late 2016 she and her husband, Will, purchased the facility located at 1100 Our Ladys Way, Ashland, KY. The building, which had been sitting vacant for many years, was previously used as headquarters for Ashland Oil Inc, a widely known oil company that began here in Ashland, KY. Kristie not only saw the potential but also loved the rich history of the building and knew that it could add great value to the community if restored.

After purchasing the space, Kristie set her vision of a non-traditional wedding venue into motion. After 2 years of design and renovation, Venue at The Edge became what it is today! Located on the second floor of the facility, the venue space has achieved the perfect loft style, non-traditional venue she was hoping for. The main venue space is 6,300 square feet with beautiful distressed brick and wood walls, rustic metal accents, refinished concrete floors, and high-end amenities. Kristie brought on her daughter, Lauren & Son-In-Law, Aaron to help manage the venue alongside her and offer clients an incredible team that is passionate about helping them create their dream event!

"Highly recommend Venue at the Edge!!

We had to change our date due to Covid, but thankfully the Venue at The Edge team worked with us so we could still use their beautiful venue! They were great to work with, quick to answer any questions, and help in anyway they could! Their space is everything a bride could wish for and more!!"

Our team at BRAVO Live DJ has had the great pleasure of performing at “Venue At The Edge” numerous times. And it’s always on point! It’s definitely a unique style - with the perfect blend of a classic yet modern look. It’s roomy for sure... but still feels warm and inviting. There are multiple spaces for their clients to utilize in whatever way works best for them. The owners & staff are friendly and professional! What more can you ask for? HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!"

"This is the largest space hands down.

Sooooo many venues tell brides they can hold 300 and I swear they should max out at 150. Way too tight! The venue has more than one room available at different prices and crowd capacities. I think their max is 500 in their largest room and I promise it could hold that comfortably!"
