The last wedding that took place there was on New Years Eve. Kelly says she became very worried when someone at a nearby business told her the venue had closed. Channel 3 stopped by the business located at 138 Market Street to try to get answers.The doors were locked and there was a stack of newspapers piled up on the doorstep from as far back as mid-January. Monday morning, Kelly finally heard back. Leastman sent an email apologizing for being out of contact and said shed been ill. She also said a check was in the mail. In the meantime, Kelly had to scramble to find a new wedding reception venue and says the ordeal could still cost her thousands of dollars. I have to find a new DJ and print new wedding invitations, she said. Meredith Leastman tells Channel 3 she has not officially closed her business. She says the space she leases needs some repairs and until theyre done she is not booking new events. Leastman says she has canceled the three events, including London Germs wedding reception, that were scheduled in 2017 and has contacted everyone involved.
