Local Wedding Venue

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!

We are Jason and Katie Marxer, husband and wife duo and new owners of Speakeasy on State, a premier event venue nestled in the heart of Redlands, California.


With backgrounds in creativity, hospitality, and a focus on community, we are excited to bring a fresh perspective to this beloved event venue.

A little about me, I love coffee, charcuterie boards and finding the next best estate sale!

Where I thrive in this business is working directly with our clients to create a memorable experience. There's something special about collaborating with each person to turn their vision into a reality. From the initial brainstorming sessions to the final touches on the big day, I love being a part of the journey and seeing the joy on our client's faces when everything comes together just right.

If you ever stop by Speakeasy on State, you'll likely find me buzzing around, coffee in hand, and a smile on my face, ready to dive into the next adventure. I can't wait to meet you and create something truly spectacular together!

While Jason keeps our financials in line, there's so much more to him than just numbers and spreadsheets.

He enjoys photography, capturing the beauty of the world around him. Music is another big part of his life. 

Jason shines most when working and interacting with people. Whether it's collaborating with me to bring our clients' visions to life or rolling up his sleeves to lend a hand at events, he thrives on the energy of human connection. Jason brings a unique perspective to our business, making every moment unforgettable. 

For both of us, owning an event venue has been a dream that turned into a reality. Through unwavering faith in God and determination, we found ourselves guided to Redlands, where Speakeasy on State awaited its new chapter.

Embracing the vibrant community of Redlands, we are committed to preserving the venue's rich history while infusing it with our own unique flair. We cherish the opportunity to share our love for food, culture, and community with our children and the Redlands community.

Finally, we are deeply invested in giving back to the community that has welcomed us with open arms. From hosting charity events to collaborating with local artisans and businesses, we are dedicated to enriching the fabric of Redlands.


Whether you're planning a wedding, corporate gathering, or social soiree, let us bring your vision to life!
