OUR TEAM

I could not be happier with the way my wedding turned out! The entire experience was stress-free. The team at Speakeasy was extremely good at communicating and working hard to create the vision that I had for my wedding. The day of my wedding was very organized, they set everything up, and contacted all of my vendors! Plus, it truly is a beautiful venue with lots of history. Highly recommend!

We're so excited to meet you!

Hello! We first want to thank you for your interest in our venue and for taking the time to learn more about us. We feel honored to even be considered to host such a special occasion for you.


I’m  Ariell Harrison and I am the owner of Speakeasy on State. This venue is run by myself and my amazing Speakeasy on State team. My husband Chris is behind the scenes on doing maintenance around the venue when he’s not busy with working as a Redlands firefighter.


I am a Redlands local and have a love for the city and its history. My husband and I both saw a need for a unique space to host weddings and parties. The search began and we were brought to a beautiful building that was just finishing up restorations. We knew right away that our hopes and prayers had been answered.


I’m a mother to a wonderful little girl who definitely keeps us on our toes. In my spare time I love traveling, making itineraries and finding local places to eat. I’m a foodie at heart, so I’m always on the hunt for the best restaurants and coffee shops around.


I love working with each of my clients and our personable communication is what sets us apart from other venues. I personally love talking on the phone with our clients and checking in to make sure wedding or party planning is going great; I am always here to answer any questions for each client.

I would love to meet you and hear your story! So come on by, let’s chat, and let us show you why Speakeasy on State is such a special and unique place.
