THE COPPER PRESS
Are you on the hunt for a wedding venue? I may have the perfect place for you! One of my favorite places in all of west Texas is first in line for my vendor spotlight. Built in the 1920s, the building was once an establishment for a steam laundry business in the heart of Colorado City, Texas. Come 2013, the Hoback family brought the historical building back to life and turned it into a industrial chic venue for weddings and events and called it the Copper Press.
The stunning venue is adorned with six gorgeous vintage chandeliers throughout main hall. It can accommodate up to 304 guests per event and you will be happy to know that the venue rental comes tables, chairs, and place settings. The venue also has it’s own commercial kitchen, sound system, a large vintage bridal suite, and an outdoor patio large enough for an intimate outdoor ceremony, garden parties, or alfresco dining. And the best part? The owner, Cherry Hoback, provides floral services and event planning services–talk about the full package!
My favorite part about the venue is that they kept most of the building’s original features and and charm of the building, and enhanced it instead of completely updating everything. I also LOVE natural light and the high ceilings and windows allow for so much light. This place is a photographer’s dream.
I still get the “oooooh, aaaaahh” feels every time I walk into the place.

WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO CALL IT THE COPPER PRESS?
“We wanted a name that would reflect on the building’s history. The building was built as a steam laundry business in the 1920s. They had copper boilers that would heat the water and, of course, they would press the laundry. Therefore, we thought ‘the Copper Press‘ would be an appropriate name.”
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE FEATURE ABOUT THE BUILDING?
“I really love the high ceilings and the vintage chandeliers.”
WHEN DID YOUR FAMILY PURCHASE THE PROPERTY? HOW LONG DID RENOVATION TAKE?
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE STYLE AND DESIGN OF THE BUILDING?
“The tall ceilings and windows reminded me of a rustic barn venue. I would say modern rustic/industrial chic. We wanted to keep as much of the original history and charm of the building. It has a clean canvas that brides can easily dress up or down.”
