LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Just hours after WAVE 3 News spoke to a bride-to-be about the possibility that her chosen wedding venue was shutting its doors, the venue has officially sent out notice of the closure.
According to a statement sent to WAVE 3 News from Noah’s Event Venue, the Louisville location was unable to reach an agreement with their landlord, the venue will permanently close on Aug. 12, 2019.
"We received word late yesterday (July 23rd) that our landlords no longer want us as the tenant of the Louisville location.
We are deeply saddened and heartbroken that our landlords rejected our lease offers and that the Louisville venue will be forced to close on August 12th, 2019.
As soon as possible after receiving the news, we began contacting any and all clients with affected events via the email tied to their event. Customers with event dates after August 12th, 2019 are asked to please fill out the form sent to their emails to begin the refund process. Customers with events before August 12th will have their event as planned.
We are grateful for the opportunity we had to be a part of so many meaningful events in Louisville."
According to the email sent to brides, if the event is before Aug. 12, 2019, it will not be affected and will continue on as planned.
The company, based out of Utah, filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy and closed four of their 42 locations around the country. Noah’s is closing one location in Michigan and three in Texas. The company is renegotiating leases on its properties as it undergoes reorganization after filing for bankruptcy.
