We were most fortunate to host our intimate wedding at this beautiful and peaceful place. Thanks go to Melissa and Shannon in helping us on short notice to setup a date and coordinate with the vendors. Everything went off without a hitch. It was a perfect day. As they say, " You're a Cairnwood bride now." and I couldn't be more thrilled.

I can't say enough positive things about Cairnwood Estate! Not only is it one of the most breathtaking venues I have ever laid eyes on - it was the absolute perfect location for our wedding! We are SO very thankful to have found Cairnwood for our big day!

Simply put - our overall experience with Cairnwood & the staff there was nothing short of amazing. Shannon, Melissa, and staff were responsive, professional, kind, and the reason our day ran so smoothly! Our guests truly overwhelmed us with all the positive feedback they had from our day, many of them saying they had never seen a more beautiful and original venue for a wedding! The estate is gorgeous and filled with history, the grounds and garden are well kept and beautiful, and the overall feel of Cairnwood is unlike anything else. If you're looking for a unique venue that you and your guests will never forget - this is the place for you!

If you want to get married and feel like royalty, this is the place to do it. The mansion and the grounds are beautiful. The rooms where the guys and girls got ready in are unique, classy, and historical. Melissa was there helping us out every step of the way. My guests were so impressed by the Cairnwood that I'm sure they will be referring it to couples in the future. Thank you Cairnwood for the wonderful memories.

If you want a fairytale wedding, Cairnwood is the place to do it. Getting married there felt like I was in the pages of a storybook. Every room of Cairnwood creates the feeling of a European castle and I most definitely felt like a princess. The staff at Cairnwood is so helpful and sweet. Melissa and Shannon went beyond their job requirements several times to help me with advice. They always had in mind what was best for me and what would make my vision come alive. They made me feel like family. There's no better feeling than feeling so comfortable about every choice you make for your wedding because you know you have a team behind you. I had the most perfect wedding and Cairnwood. It was everything I dreamed of and more. My pictures are stunning. The gardens are always kept beautiful and the mansion is in tip top shape. If you want a venue that no one will stop talking about, get married at Cairnwood.

The tour I took was very informative and the staff was very competent and friendly. The open house was a great way to meet and interview their preferred vendors. Throughout the planning process, the staff always responded to my inquiries I a timely manner. I never felt rushed or ignored. It is clear that they value each couple and treat their day like it was the most important event being held at their venue. On the day if the wedding, the staff was very helpful and accommodating. The bride and groom suites were amazing and so comfortable. I was very pleased with the event. The venue is unique and gorgeous with wonderful architecture and great photo opportunities. My guests said it was the most beautiful wedding they had been to.

We fell in love with Cairnwood the first time we visited! Gorgeous estate, beautiful grounds, just a great place to get married! We loved how there are different rooms in the estate. We had stations at our wedding, so three of the rooms had stations. There was a room for dancing, and two of the areas had bars. We used the tent for dinner, and used simple draping on the tent. Our ceremony was outside, in front of the building. Breath-taking background! We took pictures all around the grounds. The few pictures that we saw already were fantastic! Shannon and Melissa were a pleasure to work with and were very helpful during our planning process. One note: if you have a budget, please keep in mind that there are other costs besides the estate fee. You have to rent the tent, pay for draping, rent ceremony chairs and tables and chairs for dinner, etc. It was worth it to us, but did add up to more than we originally thought. Overall, an amazing venue!

Cairnwood was an absolutely amazing wedding venue! We had our ceremony and reception at Cairnwood and everyone has told us how impressed they were by the estate, I have had multiple guests tell me that it was the most beautiful wedding venue they had ever seen.

We had our ceremony in the garden, which was gorgeous. We had a perfect day, weather-wise, as well, so that also helped a lot! We had the tent out on the patio for our reception, so all of our guests were seated there. The tent was beautiful, with fans for if it got a little hot, and chandliers and tiny lights. Inside, the wedding party made great use out of the bridal suite and the groom's suite. We loved having both rooms to leave our stuff in during the wedding.

Our contact at Cairnwood was Shannon Walko and she has been amazing throughout our whole planning process. Shannon helped us coordinate when to drop things off and gave us suggestions on where to place things. She responded to any calls or emails very quickly and was always happy to help! Our wedding at Cairnwood could not have been more perfect and I cannot wait to see all of our photos in a few weeks!

My husband and I were married at Cairnwood Estate on May 25th. As soon as we saw the venue, we knew it would be the perfect choice for our wedding. The estate is an absolutely beautiful and unique venue. Throughout the planning process, Shannon and Melissa were both incredibly helpful and took the time to answer all of my questions patiently and promptly. Once we booked the venue, we had many other vendor decisions to make; Cairnwood makes this easy by hosting vendor open houses, a convenient way to meet with potential vendors. On the day of the wedding, many guests told us that they were blown away by how gorgeous the estate is. I cannot say enough fantastic things about this venue and highly recommend it. Thank you, Cairnwood, for a beautiful day!

Shannon & the Cairnwood team truly outdid themselves in every way. From the moment I stepped into Cairnwood Estate, I knew there was no other place I could see myself getting married. The grounds are impeccable and the estate itself is literally breathtaking. Shannon was so incredibly accommodating from day 1 – we came by on a Sunday and she brought us on a tour of the estate despite the fact that there really were no tours that day.

During the planning process, I was an extremely detail oriented bride and not only was the Cairnwood staff able to answer every question I asked, but they did so in a professional manner with an awesome attitude. I never felt like I was being rushed or pushed aside regardless of how busy they were. When my husband and I stopped by an open house we were always greeted with excitement and made to feel like our wedding was the only one the estate was hosting. It was truly a pleasure working with this group.

On our wedding day, Shannon was out front to greet us as my bridesmaids and I arrived at the estate. Getting ready in the bridal suite of the estate was a once in a lifetime experience that I will never forget. It was so nice and relaxing to be at the venue all day hanging out before getting married. We all were in one place and didn’t have to worry about timing of transportation. I also loved that my husband had his own suite, where he and his groomsmen could share the afternoon.

Our ceremony took place on the front porch of the estate and it could not have been more perfect. The sun set just enough to have our guests in the shade as I walked down the aisle and the beautiful exterior of the estate made the ideal backdrop for our vows. The guests enjoyed cocktails in the garden and we did dinner on the back terrace under the tent, which was right out of a fairytale. Our guests can’t stop talking about how smoothly the wedding went and how stunning it all was. It exceeded every single one of our high expectations!
