We were looking at a few different venues through their websites but emerald stuck out. They have a great offer for guests up to 100 guests. It covers quite a few things for the ceremony and reception I was impressed. We decided to take a tour and ken showed us around. He's a talker but he's super nice and doesn't beat around the bush. Tells you upfront about what they do, what they are able to do, and they don't give you any sales pitchy talk about the venue. Which I loved!! The venue was beautiful with the tree archway and the big reception hall. The bridal suite is fully remodeled. Meaning ladies six vanities with working sinks, two bathrooms, a lounge area, patio, a walk in closet, and a three way mirror like they have in he bridal shops. As for the grooms suite, pretty simple... Lounge area with game console tv (both suites with fridges) and a table area to sit and eat. Loved the venue and options and upgrades they have. Can't wait to actually have my wedding next year.

Emerald is an absolute dream place for a wedding. The staff was wonderful and very professional. They made my dream wedding a reality and I loved every minute of it. My husband had nothing bad to say about anything. The courtyard is magical and the reception room is gorgeous. The bridal suit was perfect for getting dolled up. The food was wonderful! Thank you so much for everything!!!

I absolutely love Emerald at Queensridge, not only is it a beautiful venue but the staff went above and beyond for us. By far the best decision we made was to pick them. Let's start off with the person that helped me from the beginning, Cicely. Cicely was amazing, so nice and friendly and on top of everything. Every time I called she knew exactly who I was by name. She worked with us with everything, she helped me plan everything, she gave us advice, she had so much patience. The officiant, Lewis, was great. He spent over a half hour on the phone with us a month before the wedding to ask us what we wanted and customize everything for the ceremony. He then called us a week before the wedding to finalize everything and walk us through the ceremony and spent over 45 minutes on the phone. I was really scared about the ceremony because both my husband and I are very shy and don't like being the center of attention, well he knew exactly how to break the ice and make us laugh. He even asked us to call him on our anniversary. A staff member that was simply amazing is Andrew, the DJ. I'm big on music so it was a big deal for all the music to be perfect. He knew all the songs we wanted and all the artists. We met with him once before the wedding and I knew that I could trust him and leave it in his hands. I only gave him a small list of the must play songs and he went off of that and picked all the perfect music. I procrastinated on making the video montage and I was afraid it wouldn't be done on time since I was finishing it as I was getting my make up done. Andrew took my took my laptop and finished it for me. He was my life saver that night and he even got on the dance floor and danced with us all! Mimi, the go to girl the day of my wedding was incredible too. Anything we asked for she had it done immediately and she helped me calm my nerves down. The whole staff had walkie talkies and they all stayed communicating the whole time. Overall, amazing venue and amazing staff.

Emerald at Queensridge really did a wonderful job creating the wedding I had envisioned at their venue! I was a destination wedding who booked with them sight unseen! I did get to see it about six months later on a trip to Vegas, and luckily liked the venue as much in person as I did online!!! All of the staff at EAQ is super helpful and the venue was always very prompt at getting back with emails and phone calls. We had difficulty with the cake vendor and EAQ helped us in every way possible to make sure we were happy! Upgrades can get pricey but I think they were worth it. Everyone LOVED the photobooth, the dj had a crowd dancing a good part of the night, the food was very tasty and the decorations looked awesome! We were extremely happy with the way everything turned out on our wedding day! Thanks EAQ and all of your staff for reaching all of my wedding expectations!!!

We were looking for an outdoor venue that had a classy garden like feel that would fit within our budget (a little difficult to find in Vegas) and EAQ fit perfectly. The indoor and outdoor venue is beautiful. The twinkle lights are stunning at night! EAQ has a package that includes almost everything you need at a decent price. The upgrades can get a bit pricey. The staff is very helpful, professional and friendly. Any silly question I would ask they would have an answer for or, if not, they would find out the answer. They really know weddings and made the planning and wedding day easy. On the day of the wedding they had everything under control. I didn't worry about a thing! The photobooth was a big hit and the DJ is fantastic!

Thank you, you made our special day unforgettable

My husband and I were planning on having our special wedding at Griffin Mansions, which 10 days before our wedding had shut down. I will spare that horrible experience for a different review! 10 days before our big day we decided to go to Emerald and when we arrived and I was in tears. Tiffany was my immediate point of contact and upon seeing me and hearing what happened to us she immediately went to the owners, Renae and Leon Iunco. They were of course aware of the situation and Renae gave me a hug and cried with me. It was extremely emotional as we didn't know what to do but we knew this was the place for us. Once the tears passed, we got into more detail as what my vision was for the day and what they could do to help make it come a reality. They were extremely understanding in our unique situation and flexible with all arrangements. Leading up to the day of the event and after, they were there for every silly concern or question I had. On our wedding day, Renae and Leon, along with their amazing staff, were personally there to oversee every detail and to ensure our happiness as well as our guests. The decor we selected came out amazing, the food was delicious and later I found out we had a celebrity chef assisting in the kitchen! Wow! Our wedding day was more than what we could've expected and it was all due to the love and support shown by Emerald and all their staff. Our guests haven't stopped raving about how beautiful it was and how much fun they had, especially given the circumstances. We still continue to have a very good friendship/relationship with Emerald and we are so thankful for all they did to make our day special. We can't thank them enough for what they did. We love them all so much and highly recommend using their services for all of your wedding needs! Adam and Janel Ortiz

This is the first venue we looked at. We chose to look at another for frame of reference but immediately came back to Emerald as we knew it was not possible to find anything comparable. It was picture perfect and the owner walked us through. He described how he'd come to owning the business and the passion that he feels for what he does made it the obvious choice. Throughout the past year and a half they have been available to answer questions, have allowed me to change things time after time and have reminded me of upcoming deadlines. They provide vendor information for anything they don't provide directly and everyone we dealt with was professional and incredibly detail oriented. Our wedding was this past weekend and not only was the staff there to take care of our needs, but so were the owners. It gave the feeling that not only do they make sure that every detail is taken care of, but they want to see how their hard work turns out. From the second myself and my bridal party arrived, we had someone checking on us to see if we were in need of anything. ANy details they were not 100% certain on they were validating to make sure it went exactly how I wanted. They make sure everyone is where they need to be and when. Everyting was exactly as we had discussed and it was just beautiful. The best part, is that they were making sure we were having fun. Every guest who attended said it was the most beautiful and fun wedding they have attended. On top if all of this, the pricing for everything they include is sooo reasonable. If you are getting married in Vegas, you must at least check this place out.

We just had our wedding and reception at Emerald- we are from out of town (Portland) and everything was phenominal!! We were able to plan everything via email and the staff was very responsive and helpful! I am a very picky person and had lots of little add ons and special requests so the day of was a little nerve wracking. I was pleasantly surprised that EVERYTHING went exactly how I wanted, the whole day was coordinated flawlessly, the staff was super attentive the day of making sure we knew exactly what was going on and when and we were able to customize how we wanted the whole day and evening!!! Besides the amazing staff, the venue itself is breathtaking!

We just had our wedding and reception at Emerald- we are from out of town (Portland) and everything was phenominal!! We were able to plan everything via email and the staff was very responsive and helpful! I am a very picky person and had lots of little add ons and special requests so the day of was a little nerve wracking. I was pleasantly surprised that EVERYTHING went exactly how I wanted, the whole day was coordinated flawlessly, the staff was super attentive the day of making sure we knew exactly what was going on and when and we were able to customize how we wanted the whole day and evening!!! Besides the amazing staff, the venue itself is breathtaking!

My husband and I were married on Sunday, December 4, 2011 at the beautiful Emerald at Queensridge. Our wedding day was everything we imagined that it would be, and many of our guests still rave about how excellent everything was! The bridal suite is absolutely stunning and the grooms suite was great especially during football season for all the guys. The staff was absolutely amazing both during the planning process and on our wedding day. We love EAQ and we would definitely recommend it as the perfect wedding venue!

I was just recently married here 2 weeks ago. I had wonderful service from the day I booked my wedding over a year ago. Anytime I would call or email with a question or concern, it was addressed fast and courteous! Everyone there was very helpful and nice. My ceremony and reception were beautiful and exactly how I had planned them. Any changes I wanted to make last minute the staff was very helpful in making my visions a reality. I am so pleased with my experience with EAQ and would highly recommend them!

The staff at Emerald at Queensridge was friendly and helpful from pre-wedding planning all the way through to the end of our event. They helped us through every step and were very patient with us.
The food was very good, the cake was great, and the drinks were plentiful. We couldn't have asked for more.
Everyone who attended had a great time and they loved this place. We highly recommend this venue, especially given the price compared to other places around Las Vegas. This place has everyone beat, hands down! :)

We were very pleased with the food, dj, and staff. Emerald has a wonderful groom’s room and the most spectacular bridal suite for the bride to get ready. The photography is amazing and our wedding photos are perfect. They have so many options for the décor that the possibilities are endless. I can seriously say that we had a fairy tale wedding.

Emerald at Queensridge was the most amazing place to hold our wedding. They were a one stop shop and handled all of our wedding details. They were so kind and eager to help! The facility itself is so classy and elegant. You will not be disappointed. We planned our wedding for a year and every aspect of it exceeded out expectations.

The bridal suite is by far one of my favorite highlights of Emerald. It is any brides dream come true!

The day of our wedding they really took care of us, catered to our every need. The photographers were amazing! The ceremony was gorgeous. The food was great. We even had a bakery chef at our wedding and she said our wedding cake was the best she ever had. Even the DJ stopped over at the head table after our meal and gave us 2 sticks of gum before we went out and mingled with everyone. That really amazed us.

I would recommend Emerald at Queensridge to anyone! You will have the wedding of your dreams without all the stress. They really take care of you and we cannot thank them enough.

Emerald at Queensridge was wonderful! Being a same sex lesbian couple, our options were limited to where we could have our commitment ceremony to begin with. We wanted something private, quiet, personal, where we could have the ceremony and the reception. Since the first day my partner and I walked through the doors at Emerald we felt welcome. The office administration, the kitchen staffers, DJ, bartender, and even the owners were absolutely wonderful to us. They say that planning a wedding is supposed to be one of the most stressful things to do. My partner and I were pleasantly surprised at how incredibly easy everything was. The wonderful staff at Emerald took care of every last detail. I would highly recommend this facility to any couple looking to get married, have a commit ceremony, or renew their vows. Our overall experience totally surpassed our expectations. Thank you everyone at Emerald for making our day that much more special! Kate & Deanne (September 24, 2010)

My husband and I just got married at Emerald at Queensridge on July 17, 2010. Prior to choosing our venue, we actually read reviews on this website, which made us increasingly interested in this venue. After making a trip to Vegas (we live near Reno,NV) to tour the facility our mind was quickly made up. We toured various other venues in Vegas, but for us, nothing could compare. When it came to planning and organizing the wedding, the EQ staff was very helpful, efficient, and professional. They really worked with us to help us make our wedding perfect. I personally find coordinating over emails as opposed to the phone much easier for myself, and the staff replied in a very timely manner on every question I had. The price was definitely reasonable, especially for how beautiful the venue is, as well as the high quality of the staff. We were a little concerned about the heat, as our wedding ceremony took place outside in about 112 degree weather. The staff made sure that everything went according to plan, and made all the outdoor activities as quick and efficient as possible. Surprisingly, our guests who were previously concerned about the heat were amazed with how comfortable it really was. Overall our wedding day was more perfect than we could have ever imagined. The ceremony was beautiful, the reception was a blast, and the food was delicious. We are anxiously awaiting the return of our photos, but the preview of the photos we saw on the day of our wedding were absolutely amazing. If we had to go back in time and do it again we would absolutely choose Emerald at Queensridge again and we recommend this venue to everyone!!!

Summer Wedding 2010
After looking at many different wedding venues, we fell in love with Emerald; booked our date over a year in advance. The staff was so friendly. Location-AWAY from LV Strip because we live here, but in Summerlin away from the casinos; in a great location. We had a fabulous wedding in this summer and a little over 100 guests, but this place is huge. Beautiful LED lighting accented the reception. This place has everything that you need- all in once venue with the ceremony and reception in one place, catering the food, open bar, on site photographer, on site DJ , and sweet Reverend Billitari married us. This is a great place to have basically everything you need for the price. You get an engagement photo session and every year and a complimentary photo session on your yearly anniversary. We were able to try the food for a tasting before the wedding and had a practice wedding rehearsal a few days before. Photos turned out beautiful and even received a photo book to keep forever!

Our wedding was held at Emerald at Queensridge (aka Emerald Gardens) in Summerlin on April 28th 2010. What can I say? This place is first class all the way! For those unfamiliar with anything outside of the strip or the casinos, you probably won’t have any idea about this place. But if you’re looking for a classy, elegant, all in one solution for your special day without the din of slot machines or worrying about your guests skipping out on your reception for some extreme casino action, look no further! My wife and I must have looked at a dozen venues here and while they were all beautiful, most were connected to a hotel/casino. As Vegas locals, the last thing we wanted to deal with was some over priced, smoke-filled, and impersonal resort/hotel/casino where we’d have to fight through all the drunken tourists on our special day. One of the many wonderful things about Emerald is that it’s NOT connected to a hotel/casino and you can have an elegant event without all the trappings of a typical Vegas wedding. The staff at Emerald literally took care of EVERYTHING from beginning to end. You won’t be stuck dealing with some faceless corporate entity. Everyone from the owners on down the line will personally work together with you taking care of every last detail ensuring your special day goes without a hitch while standing ready to adjust and accommodate your personal tastes and wishes. As for the location, leave the crazy strip behind for the day and venture out to the Beverly Hills of Las Vegas. Summerlin is the personification of luxury with opulent mansions, miles of golf courses and first class shopping without the pricey overhead of the mega resorts. Not to mention it’s about 10 degrees cooler than the strip. Summerlin is also located at the foot of the breathtaking natural beauty of Red Rock canyon. Of course, you’re always a short hop to some of the most luxurious hotels and resorts the city has to offer. But don’t take our word for it. Give Emerald a call and find out for yourself why this is fast becoming one of the most popular and in demand venues in the Las Vegas valley.

Review of Emerald at Queensridge (EQ)
891 South Rampart, Las Vegas, NV 89145-4826, (702) 242-5700

From my very first meeting with EQ to our grand exit and beyond, I have never met such professional, wonderful, genuine, and compassionate people as Renae and Leon of Emerald at Queensridge. I was known as “Princess,” from Leons first words to his last. During the tour, Leon gave me more information then I could have asked for, and with a bit of humor too! This made me feel comfortable. Every step in the EQ process was done so perfectly, that on my wedding day, I lounged around in the upstairs bridal suite with not a worry on my mind. I was able to enjoy every precious moment with my girls, mom, and kids. Speaking of bridal suite, “WOW” is the only word that comes to mind. My girls were spaced out with separate vanity areas for getting ready; they had plenty of time and were extremely comfortable. The staff at EQ was there every moment to make sure we had anything and everything a bridal party could ever want. The room was breath taking and the memories created there will never be forgotten.

Being that we live in Las Vegas, we wanted our wedding to not feel like a Vegas wedding, and EQ was the perfect place. Lots of beautiful scenery, trees, grass, waterfall, and of course the Red Rock Mountains peaking over the backdrop. EQ coordinated a day/night wedding based on the timing of the sun, so I would walk down the aisle in daylight and back down at night. The trees and outside courtyard lit up so elegantly that the final photographs were one of a kind. This would not have happened if Leon and his staff did not care so much.

The officiant, Rev. Peter Billitteri and the videographer, Afterglow, were more than I could have asked for. As EQs referrals, we got the best rates and most wonderful service, which helped us capture this special day forever. Rev. Peter Billitteri met us in person and customized every word spoken at our ceremony, as well as catered to our uniquely crazy sand ceremony. It was perfect and it was all because of Rev. Peter Billitteri. Afterglow captured every moment on film, and a cameraperson was there no matter what was going on. They were kind, and always asking us for special requests. Unbelievable is how I describe these wonderful people.

The venue, from the food, décor, staff, ambiance, set-up, staircase, and layout, EQ is the perfect place to hold a wedding. Every detail was customized to match our style, personalities and taste. Renae even turned on the green wall lighting to add to the overall elegant appearance of the room, allowing the place to glow even more. It was beautiful, from our appletini green accents, napkins, and centerpieces, to the lighting on the walls, ceiling, staircase, and dance floor. The bartender was perfection and made every guest feel as if they were getting something special. The DJ let us pick every song played from the ceremony to reception and beyond. Because we are a younger couple, most DJs are not used to playing such a wide variety of music, but this DJ pulled it off.

Since photography is the base of EQ, our wedding photos were beyond perfection, with variety and every moment captured as if they never took their finger off the camera trigger. Photos I would have never thought to take were taken because of the creative minds of Leon and his staff. Such photos as an over the staircase group dance floor shot which showed everyone who attended our wedding all in one photo, and we can not forget the crazy bridal party shot and beautiful ring photography. We now have 1500 photos to recapture our special day and share for a lifetime!

The staff at EQ is amazing, and now greets me by name whenever I come by for business, photo shoots or questions, it is like I gained an extended family, and a wonderful one. However, it was Leon and Renae who not only made our wedding magical and perfect, but they treated me as if I were their only daughter, one who deserved the world, and the world is what they gave me. I can never repay EQ for making our special day one to remember for a lifetime. I recommend anyone who wants a perfect, unforgettable, beautiful, non-Vegas wedding in Vegas to check out EQ before making that tough decision.

Review of Emerald at Queensridge (EQ)
891 South Rampart, Las Vegas, NV 89145-4826, (702) 242-5700

From my very first meeting with EQ to our grand exit and beyond, I have never met such professional, wonderful, genuine, and compassionate people as Renae and Leon of Emerald at Queensridge. I was known as “Princess,” from Leons first words to his last. During the tour, Leon gave me more information then I could have asked for, and with a bit of humor too! This made me feel comfortable. Every step in the EQ process was done so perfectly, that on my wedding day, I lounged around in the upstairs bridal suite with not a worry on my mind. I was able to enjoy every precious moment with my girls, mom, and kids. Speaking of bridal suite, “WOW” is the only word that comes to mind. My girls were spaced out with separate vanity areas for getting ready; they had plenty of time and were extremely comfortable. The staff at EQ was there every moment to make sure we had anything and everything a bridal party could ever want. The room was breath taking and the memories created there will never be forgotten.

Being that we live in Las Vegas, we wanted our wedding to not feel like a Vegas wedding, and EQ was the perfect place. Lots of beautiful scenery, trees, grass, waterfall, and of course the Red Rock Mountains peaking over the backdrop. EQ coordinated a day/night wedding based on the timing of the sun, so I would walk down the aisle in daylight and back down at night. The trees and outside courtyard lit up so elegantly that the final photographs were one of a kind. This would not have happened if Leon and his staff did not care so much.

The officiant, Rev. Peter Billitteri and the videographer, Afterglow, were more than I could have asked for. As EQs referrals, we got the best rates and most wonderful service, which helped us capture this special day forever. Rev. Peter Billitteri met us in person and customized every word spoken at our ceremony, as well as catered to our uniquely crazy sand ceremony. It was perfect and it was all because of Rev. Peter Billitteri. Afterglow captured every moment on film, and a cameraperson was there no matter what was going on. They were kind, and always asking us for special requests. Unbelievable is how I describe these wonderful people.

The venue, from the food, décor, staff, ambiance, set-up, staircase, and layout, EQ is the perfect place to hold a wedding. Every detail was customized to match our style, personalities and taste.

We selected Emerald at Queensridge for our wedding this past March and it was stunning! I received nothing but compliments from all of the guests. When we first arrived, I fell in love with the ceremony area outside, with all the trees, flowers and lights. It over looks the golf course and is picturesque. We purchased the standard package and did a few upgrades which really took our theme to another level. They offered thousands of options and you could really tailor every aspect to your needs. Our favorite upgrades were the four tier chocolate fountain, which we couldn’t get our guests away from and the colored lights in the reception area ; very beautiful and elegant. I also recommend purchasing the rights to your wedding photos. We received a disk with 1400 pictures documenting from the time we arrived until we drove off in the limo as Mr. and Mrs. The photos are magnificent quality and are truly worth it. Renee and Leon went above and beyond, answering all of our questions and assuring me that my wedding day would be special and the best day of my life, and it was! Vanessa, our coordinator was nothing but professional, sweet and on top of everything. I highly recommend Emerald at Queensridge for your wedding, they exceeded our expectations and I’m sure they will do the same for you.

We held our wedding reception at Emerald at Queensridge. I was looking for something other than 4 walls in a hotel banquet room. The venue was beautiful and our day went without a hitch. It exceeded our expectations. Vanessa was so nice and helpful on the day of the event and the staff was courteous and professional. It made it easy having a package that included the venue, photography, DJ & catering. DJ Brian did what we asked and managed to get everyone out on that dance floor. It was great streaming the music outside in that beautiful patio. People were dancing outside as well. The food was delicious and the photos came out great. We received a lot of great comments from our friends and family about the venue. Thanks to all who helped make our day so special!

Every girl dreams of the day she will get married and plans it in her head over and over hoping every last detail will be perfect . . . . A dream come true. That’s exactly what my wedding was. It was amazing and everything I could ever want. The location was breathtaking, the food was delicious, and the staff was extremely professional and friendly. I could not have asked for a better wedding. I had everything from a beautiful bridal sweet to get married where they served champagne and o’devours, tons of professional photography, snow on our first dance as husband and wife, incredible filet for dinner, and finally an unforgettable goodbye escorting us out to our limo. I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone getting married in the future. Thank you so much for helping me and creating my perfect wedding!

Everything all started with the greeting as we entered the business. Every member was completely professional and seemed pleased to be a part of our day. Made planning simple. The package was great as they have their own photographers on their staff which take TONS of pictures and their own DJ who was a pleasure working with. As part of our package, an album was included and is beautiful. The setting in the courtyard was amazing and the reception, which had superb meals, to follow made the perfect completion to our perfect day. I'd like to thank the ENTIRE staff for making our day without any stress and for making our whole wedding a complete success.

We had researched many venues for our wedding for almost a year when we came across Emerald at Queensridge. We first came into contact with them at a bridal Fair and after careful consideration, decided to go in person to see the venue and talk with the staff. From the first moment we we walked in, we LOVED it! Leon, Renee, Foianna, Freshta, Jesus and the rest of the staff were super friendly and showed us around the venue. It was absolutely BEAUTIFUL inside and out. We loved the outside ceremony idea and they had the perfect spot for it. The reception/banquet room was also exactly what we were looking for. We decided to go with them for our wedding and we couldn't have asked for a better place! The staff was friendly, helpful and very informative. They even allowed us to view other function setups to get a better vision of the venue when it was decorated. They walked us through step by step and never hesitated to offer suggestions with things we were unsure of. They also provided us with a list of preferred vendors who provided great services. Our Wedding was Absolutely AMAZING!!!! Everything was perfect from the ceremony, food, decorations, setup of the reception/banquet room, DJ to the helpful wedding planners. They do an incredible job with Weddings and we would recommend this venue to anyone who wants an wonderful, incredible wedding at a top notch venue. We have and continue to recieve many many compliments about how beautiful our wedding was. Thanks to Emerald at Queensridge, we have been told by many that it was the "best" wedding they have ever been to...And we agree!

My wife was set on having our wedding in Las Vegas so it took awhile to find the right location. I was kind of worried because I only thought of Elvis when it came to Vegas weddings. The Mrs. found The Emerald at Queensridge and she was sold from day one! Without even visiting the site we both knew that this would be the place where we wanted to get married. From the start all of the staff won me over because of the way they helped me get through the stressors of planning a wedding. My wife was still overseas at the time so majority of the planning fell on me and without them I would have been lost. Once we finally saw the location in person we were even more assured that we made the best decision of our lives. Meeting with them and doing the final walk-through to the actual wedding day where we had to worry about nothing, this beautiful location and the staff was excellent. We got married almost two weeks ago and family/friends including ourselves are still on cloud nine on how perfect everything was.

Very pleased with my decision with this venue. I couldn't have been happier. These are people who truely care about you and how your wedding day turns out. They were very helpful at all times. I was very happy to find out that my guests were as pleased with this venue as I was. My guests raved about how wonderful the food was, how beautiful the grounds were, and how helpful the staff was throughout the wedding. I liked the fact that they only book up to two weddings a day and that one wedding doesn't ever cross with another. They were able to give me their undivided attention, which I loved. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone. Thanks to them, my wedding was as perfect as I always imagined it would be.

My wedding was everything I imagined and so much more thanks to everyone at Emerals at Queensridge. Lets start from the begining. I wanted my wedding in Vegas however I didn't want it to feel like a Vegas wedding. After a weekend filled of going from hotel to hotel I had been let down. I got back to California and I needed to make a decision. As I was getting down to the final ones, I started searching for reviews. I came accross Emerald and I was BLOWN AWAY. Just by the pictures alone there was something that sparked inside and I could see myself here. I emailed immediatly to check for my date and the onll opening was a morning wedding and I had to have it, despite wanting an evening wedding. I emailed them and realized it may be way outta my budget. They worked with me and helped me create an even with menu that fit my exact budget. It was so worth it. The staff is with you every step of the way. I don't have much phone time during the day so I kept in communication via email and let me say there wasn't anything left out. This place is a dream come true. My wedding day was amazing because of the location and because of the wonderful staff at Emerald. I reccomend them to everyone. Don't let the price get you down its worth every penny! One of my bridesmaid favorite things about Emerald was the dressing room, laddies its a girls heaven. Trust me you wont regret a single moment. And if you don't trust me look at all the other wonderful reviews, or even better check out the website and grab some tissues.

My husband and I couldn't be happier with the service we received from the staff at Emerald at Queensridge. On our wedding day it started to rain so our ceremony had to be moved indoors. The staff took care of every detail and made the ceremony absolutely wonderful and my husband and I didn't have to stress about any details as they were all taken care of. The food was absolutely fabulous and everyone had plenty to eat. After our wedding we had troubles with one of our vendors and called the staff at Emerald at Queensridge and they made a call to that vendor and our problem with them was resolved within hours. The customer service that they provide is the best! I would recommend Emerald at Queensridge to anyone who is serious about having the best wedding ever!

My husband and I recently got married at Emerald at Queensridge. This process began about seven months ago! We had literally looked at and researched at least twenty reception sites prior to making our final decision. Believe me, this was not a hard decision to make once we went to Emerald at Queensridge. We had gone in without an appointment to get a tour of Emerald at Queensridge. It literally took our breath away! The bridal suite had every amenity possible- from hair and make up stations, private restroom, fully stocked refrigerator and more! The outside courtyard and gazebo was absolutely beautiful, with magnificent landscaping. The winding staircase in the reception area is like nothing I have ever seen. This is a true fairy tale setting in Las Vegas! From start to finish, there was extreme attention paid to even the smallest detail, with nothing left to chance. Over the seven months of planning, there were probably no less than 50 phone calls made, and numerous drop in visits to discuss our wedding. Each and every interaction with every member of their event planning team was great. Everyone was pleasant, caring, and personable. My husband and I both felt during every step of the way the staff was their to support us and assist us- as well as put up with all of the over the top anxiety that is experienced when planning a wedding. On the day of the wedding, everything went smoothly and seamlessly. When our cake was delivered by an outside vendor of our choosing, Renae ( one of the owners) immediately noticed that the cake was not set up correctly. She immediately contacted our cake vendor, to have this matter rectified. It was rectified immediately. If it hadn't been for her close attention to detail and checking on our cake the minute it was delivered, it most likely would have collapsed. This was all without us having to lift a finger. We had a fabulous buffet lunch including Asian flank steak and Lemon Chicken which were outstanding. The chef decided to add an additional vegetable to add more variety to the buffet. This greatly added to the menu that we offered and went above and beyond what would have been expected as "great" service. I must also add that this decision was made on the wedding day, just hours before the meal and we were not charged a dime for this last second addition to our menu. Both of the owners, Renae and Leon were at our event the entire time. They were constantly checking on us and the event, to make sure that nothing was overlooked. I was even given a swift order to return to my seat and eat my meal, that the chef prepared an amazing meal and I was not to miss it. Needless to say, I did what I was told. I am glad that I did because I can't say enough good things about the meal that we had.

Both my husband and I had a favorite champagne which was able to be specially ordered for us for our event without a problem. There was never a moment in which we felt pressured to do anything other than the way we wanted it to be. We decided to go with all of the Vendors that they had recommended and we were not disappointed. The DJ, Brian, went above and beyond a house DJ. He mixed our first dance wedding song which included five songs spliced together. I can't rave enough about the quality of service provided to us by the package of vendors that were put together by Renae, Leon, Shane, Ron, and all of their helpful team of coordinators. I

It was time to view our long awaited pictures ( 1 1/2 weeks!) It took us over 5 hours and two visits to look through the 1100 pictures that were taken of our event. They were nothing less than spectacular! With all of the time that we have spent at Emerald at Queensridge over the past 7 months, I feel like Shane, Leon, and Renae are part of our family!!! We are so happy with the way our wedding was handled from start to finish, that we have already booked another party for our daughter in September of 2009. We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for this wonderful experience, and one of the most memorable days of our lives.

We had a fabulous buffet lunch including Asian flank steak and Lemon Chicken which were outstanding. The chef decided to add an additional vegetable to add more variety to the buffet. This greatly added to the menu that we offered and went above and beyond what would have been expected as "great" service. I must also add that this decision was made on the wedding day, just hours before the meal and we were not charged a dime for this last second addition to our menu. Both of the owners, Renae and Leon were at our event the entire time. They were constantly checking on us and the event, to make sure that nothing was overlooked. I was even given a swift order to return to my seat and eat my meal, that the chef prepared an amazing meal and I was not to miss it. Needless to say, I did what I was told. I am glad that I did because I can't say enough good things about the meal that we had.

Both my husband and I had a favorite champagne which was able to be specially ordered for us for our event without a problem. There was never a moment in which we felt pressured to do anything other than the way we wanted it to be. We decided to go with all of the Vendors that they had recommended and we were not disappointed. The DJ, Brian, went above and beyond a house DJ. He mixed our first dance wedding song which included five songs spliced together. I can't rave enough about the quality of service provided to us by the package of vendors that were put together by Renae, Leon, Shane, Ron, and all of their helpful team of coordinators. I

It was time to view our long awaited pictures ( 1 1/2 weeks!) It took us over 5 hours and two visits to look through the 1100 pictures that were taken of our event. They were nothing less than spectacular! With all of the time that we have spent at Emerald at Queensridge over the past 7 months, I feel like Shane, Leon, and Renae are part of our family!!! We are so happy with the way our wedding was handled from start to finish, that we have already booked another party for our daughter in September of 2009. We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for this wonderful experience, and one of the most memorable days of our lives.

We had our wedding at Emerald @ Queensridge 5 years ago! The venue was absolutely beautiful. Since then we have had one of our very good friends there and it was still breathtaking! (Not as awesome as mine of course! LOL) But still beautiful and such a friendly and professional staff. I'm looking forward to seing yet another friend of ours get married there this April and can't wait to see how it turns out. I've been to alot of weddings, some at golf courses others at churches etc, where though all those weddings had different colors or were in different seasons, they were still very similar. The weddings at Emerald @ Queensridge always have there own flare. It feels like I'm at a different venue every time.

Thank You to the wonderful staff for making my moment one I will never forget. And as long as my friends keep getting married there, a tiny part of me gets to re-live it.

Mimi was a dream - so well organized and with a very calm demeanor - we loved working with her! Cicely too made the planning easy and almost effortless! All in all a wonderful experience and we'll definitely recommend Emerald!

My husband and I are from Texas and recently got married at Emerald at Queensridge. Our wedding day was more than we could have ever dreamed of. Everyone at Emerald Gardens made our wedding day their priority and made sure everything was perfect! We couldn't have asked for more! The staff was always so helpful and honest when giving opinions on what may or may not look good. We were provided with an amazing bridal suite, groom suite, Reverend, and photographer. We visit Las Vegas on a regular basis and always have a great time, so we thought what better for a destination wedding! With Emerald Gardens we were able to have a romantic and intimate wedding ceremony, and a great vacation for everyone there as well! The photography was a little expensive, but the pictures are wonderful. We would recommend Emerald Gardens to anyone thinking of Las Vegas for a wedding!

I loved my wedding at Emerald! The office staff was very easy to work with - we met with a few of them over the course of our planning, and they were all super friendly, professional and patient. They followed-up with us on a regular basis. The day-of staff was amazing - the coordinator and her assistant were perfect and kept me informed of every step. The flow was flawless and I loved my big day! The big star of the day for me was DJ Andrew though. Very cool; did everything we asked plus more - perfect timing and just an all-around nice guy. I took a star away for value as I thought some things were overpriced, such as the up lighting. I chose to have it anyway and was certainly beautiful, creating a very soft ambiance. The food was delicious and my guests raved about it. Everybody had tons of fun with the photo booth! I was really pleased with how everything came together. The one hiccup we had was with the reverend. The reverend we had a phone interview with and planned our non-religious ceremony with wasn't there. The reverend that married us was called last minute but I didn't find out until that it was not the same reverend until after the ceremony. We ended up having a religious ceremony instead, to our surprise. It was fine, but it would've been bad if we were atheists I guess (not the case). All in all, I LOVED my day and I would definitely recommend it!!!

We had our wedding at Emerald at Queensridge on July 2nd, 2011. It was amazing. The staff was so nice and so helpful with everything. Vanessa helped us put it all together over the past year and she did a great job. We changed our minds on some things from time to time and Emerald worked with us each step of the way.

The place looked amazing, inside and out. The garden outside, the tables, the food displays and the staircase all looked to great. The food (beef, potatoes, green beens, cake, cookies, etc...) was all amazing!! We had a buffet and I never expected it to be better than 'good'...but it was awesome.

The lighting that the venue can provide when the dancing gets going makes such a difference. The room is so colorful and so exciting for the guests.

What a great time. We reccomend it to anyone who wants to be married in Vegas, but who also want avoid the strip.

There was only one thing we would have liked different. When you sign your contract, you pay a certain ammount per head for 4.5 hours of time at the venue. After that time is up, you need to pay per head, per hour. So for us to keep the bar open, even if there was half the people left, we still needed to pay for the total number of people e started with. We just wish there was an option we could have switched to as the night went along.

Otherwise, AMAZING night. The guests loved it!! So did we!!!

Wonderful wedding venue.
Quality of service: Excellent. For being one of the more popular wedding venues, everything is spotless and executed well. They have a full catering kitchen and bakery on the property.

Responsiveness: Wonderful. Everyone is so helpful. If you have any questions, all you have to do is send an email and someone will get back to you right away. The day of our wedding was perfectly planned. The staff wears ear pieces to communicate with eachother. Anything you need will be done right away.

Professionalism: The staff is very accomidating and knowledgeable. Its a busy place, so if you do want to meet with the staff, always make an appointment.

Value: The specials make this very affordable for someone on a budget. They will provide everything you need. However, I did not want to have a simple wedding. You can customize every aspect of your wedding, with the endless amounts of upgrades. My mother and I upgraded everything including linens, charger plates, photo booth, custom lighting, Gobo light, tray passed h'orderves in white Asian spoons, sugar flowers on cake and video screen. Everything looked beautiful! These upgrades would be a similiar cost anywhere else. EAQ is very flexible with vendors. I used Sweet Sensations for my candy buffet, and they were much more affordable than EAQ.

Flexibility: EAQ is very flexible with everything except photography. They have a new partnership with Cashman Brothers Fine Photography,so they will not allow any other photographers. Cashman Brothers does a wonderful job!

Overall I was very pleased. It was important to me to have my reception at a non-gaming hotel or casino, because I wanted a more private event (minus the tourists and cigarette smoke.) I work in a casino, so I can see 10 brides in one afternoon. EAQ is a single event venue, so you have the entire venue dedicated to your wedding. Thank you EAQ for a lifetime of memories!

I was very happy I chose Emerald at Queensridge. It is a gorgeous venue with lush and beautiful gardens outside and an intimate space inside for dinner and dancing. The staff were great. Vanessa was very helpful coordinating all of the wedding details in the months leading up to the big day and Devin made sure the wedding day went off without a hitch. My wedding definitely wouldn't have been the same without them. Reverend Peter was amazing as well. It didn't feel like he was reading the standard wedding speech, but rather it felt like he was speaking to us from the heart like he had known us for years. The ceremony was very heartfelt and emotional and had most of the audience in tears.
Although the basic package they offer is affordable, the extras and add ons can get very expensive so be aware of this upfront and ask a lot of questions beforehand. We opted for quite a few upgrades which almost doubled the starting price but overall, it was worth it. One upgrade I would definitely recommend is the photo-booth...it was a huge hit with the guests and provided us with some great candid pics of all of our guests having fun!

Paul and I recently got married at Emerald at Queensridge in Las Vegas, NV. It is located west of the strip in the Summerlin area across from Boca Park. I never dreamed of a big white wedding, but that is what my husband wanted and that is exactly what I got. I am definitely not a DIY bride, so Paul and I narrowed it down to all-inclusive wedding venues. After much research we discovered this is not only a cheaper option, but also the only option if we actually wanted to make it down the aisle with out killing each other. EQ was the location we decided on.

Quality of Service: This is where EQ stands out. When it comes to the venue, the food, the service during the wedding, and the reaction of guests who attended the wedding, the quality was outstanding. We had 60 out of town guests and it was important to us to give them an experience that showed how much we appreciated them. EQ exceeded this standard.

Responsiveness: Vanessa, the receptionist, never went more than 24 hours without responding to every e-mail, returning every phone call, and accommodating me every time I showed up to the office unannounced. When there was something I had overlooked she took the initiative to contact me.

Professionalism: I gave EQ five stars because they executed the event in a way that only experience could teach. They were ready to handle any situation.

Value for cost: We priced out the same wedding in Minneapolis and Los Angeles and found that due to the inability to find all inclusive venues the price would increase by around 60%.

Flexibility: EQ is extremely flexible and almost anything can be done to create your dream wedding, but everything has a cost. Deviate from the package and it will cost you.

Overall my wedding was a Princes Fantasy that was over all too quickly. I would strongly recommend using Emerald at Queensridge.

This venue was absolutely beautiful. the staff was always very friendly and easily contacted with any questions or concerns. The food was great, DJ was very good and the cake was decent. They were very good at any last minute changes and had a strong but flexible structure for the night. I would definitely recommend going to their open house when they do have one so you can try the food, there were a few things at the open house that thought I wanted on the menu but when trying it changed my mind quick. the Brisket and red roasted potatoes are amazing! They were quite pricey compared to a few other venues we looked at but I would have rather paid the extra money for their beautiful courtyard and awesome reception hall. A lot of the upgrades are expensive and i found the place was beautiful without all the upgrades and it worked out well for a cost conscious bride.

My husband and I were married at Emerald at queensridge On September 23, 2010. We took advantage of a special they were running which included food, open bar, cake ceremony, photography and decor, basically a one stop shop. They worked at our pace and around our shcedule especially since we both worked full time and attended school. So for us it was a time saver having them do all the work for us. They had an open house which allowed us to view their work, taste the food...which was amazing, their photography and different set ups of the location. I was truely impressed with the effiecency and their attention to detail especially the things that may slip your mind like making sure my veil was over my face right before i walked down the aisle...which i had forgotten! Overall they were amazing and come highly recommended!

We took advantage of a special they were running which included food, open bar, cake ceremony, photography and decor, basically a one stop shop. They worked at our pace and around our shcedule especially since we both worked full time and attended school. So for us it was a time saver having them do all the work for us. They had an open house which allowed us to view their work, taste the food...which was amazing, their photography and different set ups of the location. I was truely impressed with the effiecency and their attention to detail especially the things that may slip your mind like making sure my veil was over my face right before i walked down the aisle...which i had forgotten! Overall they were amazing and come highly recommended! Read less

My newly wed husband and I were married at EQ on Sep 3rd 2010. We booked EQ at our first site visit when searching for our wedding place. Not like others we were engaged on July and got married on September.Only with two month time frame, EQ made it happen for us. Their staff are well organized and friendly. Our wedding coordinator, Vanessa and Elenor were very helpful and great! I loved the ceremony and reception site and all my guests complimented it was the best wedding they've been to. Overall, I highly recommend, and it is the best wedding place ever!!

My husband and I just had our wedding in August! It was the most amazing day of my life. Emerald at Queensridge was the first venue we looked at then we went and looked at a few more. We came back to Emerald! It was by far the best venue that we found! We loved everything about it. We only had our ceremony there but would've love to have the reception there. Too expensive though :D The photography was great and our engagement & wedding pictures turned out beautiful. The photography was a main reason we chose there. I wouldn't change my wedding day one bit. It was amazing!

When you look up this venue online you see a gorgeous outside ceremony with a spectacular, fun-filled reception area. When you watch a video of this venue you see nothing but bliss. I saw the price and said no-way am I paying that much but my then future husband said lets just go look at it. I got their and fell in love!!! We ended up booking them and I can honestly say it was a rough road with them. They are nice people but everything is extra, from the colored ribbon on each chair to a colored rose ball down the isle. The starting package is very bare and was not explained to us when we signed the contract so when we were told it's $3.00-$7.50 A PERSON for ONE hor' derve we were shocked. You would think with the amount we were paying it came with a selection of hor' derves. The one thing that got me the most was the 100 guest count which is false advertising its 98 guest count and you are a guest at your own wedding. After paying over $13,000, due to all the "extras" I wanted I was told that they don't count the bride and groom as being at their own wedding and all the money we paid to just book the venue doesn't pay for our food and drink. After paying $100+ for each additional person past the 100 we thought we could have I was then told at my 30 day my FH and I are also a guest at our own wedding and I had to pay for us to be their as well.
These are a few of the frustrations I felt people should be aware of but don't let them detour you from visiting or booking this venue because let me tell you the day of my wedding was SPECTACULAR!!!! It was everything I dreamed and worked so hard for!!! I had people telling me it felt like a million dollar wedding which makes me feel so good inside. My husband and I ended up being pleased with the final product.

This venue was AMAZING. They were so helpful and they made EVERYTHING run so smoothly. Their place is beautiful. I highly recommend getting married when it is completely dark outside because the lights in the trees and drapes are so pretty when it is dark. Perfect setting. Inside is gorgeous. The cake and food were so good. The staff made you feel like you had nothing to worry about. Almost like it came out of "The Wedding Planner" movie. Several of my friends getting married next year are getting married there after seeing my pictures and me speaking highly of them. They were the first place I went to see and just KNEW this was the place. I'm so pleased.
Only thing, the DJ could have done a little bit better of a job. I come from a HUGE very crazy, loving to have a good time family. When we go to weddings or special events there is no getting us off that dance floor and while my friends had a great time, my family kind of sat around and watched the rest of us dance. Because the DJ played mostly hip hop music when I asked for a variety. EVERYTHING from disco, 50s-90s, country, rock and roll, house music etc. I was very specific on that. But regardless, my family and friends said they had a GREAT time and they loved the venue, said it was so beautiful.

Other than that everything was AMAZING.

Emerald @ Queensridge was awesome. The dj was amazing and took care of special requests. Vanessa was on every detail and made sure all of my questions were answered and needs were met. The food was so good people couldnt believe it wasnt brought in by a 10 star restaurant. ( i know 10 star doesnt exsist but 5 star doesnt do the food justice) Everyone there attended to our every need. The overall value is great but the extras are kind of pricey but if you stick to what you absolutely want its totally worth it. Keep in mind some of the things you might think would be a nice add on others might not even have realized you paid extra to have it and might not even have noticed. (like changing the color of napkins or sashes) The best investment was definately the photo booth...everyone is still talking about it!!!!!!

Emerald at Queensridge was definitely the perfect choice for us. We knew we wanted our special day to take place with them from the moment we saw the property. They made everything smooth and seamless from the engagement to the reception. They were always on top of everything while still allowing us the space we wanted to create the day based on our personal style and tastes.

Planning a wedding is challenging and Emerald at Queensridge helped make dealing with the details of such an event easy. From the beginning, I enjoyed meeting my wedding planner and taking a tour of their facility. At one point they held an open house where I was able to taste their menu selections before actually having to pick what food I wanted served. I used them for both my wedding and reception venue, for my photography, for my food and drink, and for my DJ. I had lots of questions and they were more than happy to sit down with me when I popped in to their office. There were lots of changes going on at their facility during the time just before my wedding, but everything ended up coming out so much better - I got the buffet I waned at no extra charge, I got to have a real cake rather than a cake facade at no extra charge, and they installed these beautiful ceiling swags that really made their ballroom gorgeous. The wedding coordinators kept everyone happy and all the events of the evening flowing smoothly and everything went off without a hitch!

My husband and I married at Emerald@Queensridge May 22, 2010. I am not very good at event planning and was looking for a "package deal" to reduce stress with vendors, dj's, etc. Emerald was the perfect place for me. The staff is so great. They work with every and any questions and requests that you may have. They provided their own food (made fresh in house!), dj, officiant/pastor, standard decorations/linens/chair covers, cake, and standard bar in my package deal. I simply provided a music playlist, picked out the menu items we wanted, added a few decorations to the room. That was it! The owners are also professional photographers, so engagement and wedding pictures were taken care of through Emerald as well. The only vendor I booked was videography.

We received so many compliments on how organized, timely, and simply beautiful my wedding was. I've heard nightmare stories of the events of the day being out of sequence or the dj messing up or the food tasting like cardboard. The food was great, as we had both chicken breast and steak, the cake was moist and delicious, the dj was great and moved the entire day along smoothly. Thanks for giving me such a beautiful wedding guys!!!

I used their in house florist, DJ, videographer and catering. The food was exceptional. I received compliments from many guest saying it was the best wedding food they had ever had. The DJ was great, playing all of my requested songs plus a great mix for the guests. The florist was a great value with beautiful displays. My bouquet lasted for a week after the wedding! They made my wedding stress free. Every little detail was decided with them beforehand making everything run very smoothly. The facility is beautiful and while it was very pricey it ended up being worth every penny. I have had so many compliments on what a classy but very fun wedding. I would recommend this place to anyone!

I got married here when they were still Emerald Gardens. Everything went off without a hitch and everyone that worked there was amazingly helpful. Shortly after we signed our contract the prices were raised drastically, and I thought they were on the high side to begin with, and had we not signed the contract when we did we would not have been able to afford the prices. However, I am still very happy that we chose this location.

Some of the options are a bit overpriced however, like the uplighting. I purchased it anyway and it created a beautiful ambiance. The food was delicious and the photo booth was a big hit! Definitively recommend it!

I chose this venue for several reasons: the looks, the value, the convenience, and the expertise.

People complimented all night at how lovely this wedding venue was. I would definitely recommend the nighttime wedding slot over the daytime slot, because of the more varied photo options (daytime, sunset, and twilight). The reception area is truly grand, with tall ceilings and fabric draping, but it doesn't have much in terms of room decor. The base package includes ivory linens and chair covers, which fortunately, looks fabulous, since colored linen upgrades were pretty expensive, IMO.

I think the base package is one of the best wedding deals in town. Watch out for the upgrades though, they can add up quick. I was pretty lucky to have booked the venue in 2012, since the package and add-on prices all increased significantly in 2013.

Some people may have wanted more flexibility, but I liked the convenience of having a wedding package. With the package, my venue, photographer, DJ, officiant, bakery, and caterer were all taken care of, and more importantly - they were all good. I also liked the convenience of having both the ceremony and reception at the same venue. It made for a very "efficient" wedding (I got to do pretty much everything I wanted in the 4.5 hour timeframe).

And finally, the Emerald crew are pros. I wasn't crazy about having my plans handed off from the sales team to the coordinator on the day of the wedding, but these people do 250 weddings a year - they know what they are doing. The half hour rehearsal that we had the day before wasn't a true rehearsal (the reverend was not even there) and left a lot to be desired. But although I didn't know exactly what I would be doing, the Emerald crew whispered instructions to us throughout the whole thing, and everything went off without a hitch.

As an out of town bride I had a lot of concerns planning a Vegas wedding that was both fun and sophisticated. The EAQ team was amazing from our very first meeting and made long distance wedding planning easy. Beyond their excellent service the location is ideally located and absolutely beautiful. All of our guests raved about how lovely the wedding was and two of my girlfriends have already looked into having their weddings at EAQ. As an added bonus you have an amazing photography team already at your disposal on location. They really handle everything from start to finish - an amazing value for your money.

Emerald at Queennsridge is an amazing venue. My husband and I fell in love with the space. The outside ceremony area is really unique and the inside reception area is a great space- I was initially concerned that it was too big, that my 50 guests would be lost in such a large area, but it ended up being a great, intimate evening and the space felt just right. When making the decision, the only drawback was the price, but to save money would have meant going to a cheaper place, and we decided that you get what you pay for and those other places looked and felt cheaper and we were willing to pay for the classy, elegant wedding that we wanted. We do not regret that at all.

The staff was very helpful throughout the process. The day of the wedding our wedding coordinator, Vanessa, was very sweet, calm and organized.. She took care of everything- when a groomsman�s button popped off right before the ceremony, she had it sewn on and back to him in no time. The bridal suite was amazing to get ready in- it was great to be at the venue and to just play all day- the hair and makeup people also really liked the space and set up. We did however, have to pay $150 to come in early (you get the 3 hours before your event for free), even though there was not anything else scheduled earlier in the day. The ceremony was beautiful and the reception was great- the food was delicious (we chose the brisket- very, very tender, and the herbed chicken which had an amazing cream sauce- yum!) Also we loved that we got served the food in really beautiful presentations while everyone else got to get what they wanted at the buffet. The lighting, tables and general ambiance were lovely.

The photography was great. I had a really specific idea of what I wanted and I emailed Jesus, the photographer, certain poses, and he had the list and made sure to get every shot that day. The photos were amazing. They took over 1500 pictures of the day, and we really, really liked them. They are quite expensive to order, but that is true of most photography studios.

The only problem that we had was with the DJ, Brian, who was unprepared and made some rude/ inappropriate comments to us and at the reception. We expressed our concerns to the owners, had a meeting with everyone, and we feel that he understands what our concerns were and that it will not happen again. Just make sure that he understands exactly what you want at your reception (are you ok with being in the middle of a dance circle and having your guests come and dance with you to �She�s a Super Freak�?) and what kind of music you want played. There are other DJs that are available through his company if you do not have a good feeling when you meet him. We did not know that when we met with him.

Overall, we had an amazing wedding and are so, so happy that we chose this venue. Everyone was impressed and I have heard multiple times from guests that it was one of the best wedding they have ever been to. Everything was taken care of for us, and it was a very impressive and elegant event.

The outside ceremony area is really unique and the inside reception area is a great space- I was initially concerned that it was too big, that my 50 guests would be lost in such a large area, but it ended up being a great, intimate evening and the space felt just right. When making the decision, the only drawback was the price, but to save money would have meant going to a cheaper place, and we decided that you get what you pay for and those other places looked and felt cheaper and we were willing to pay for the classy, elegant wedding that we wanted. We do not regret that at all.

The staff was very helpful throughout the process. The day of the wedding our wedding coordinator, Vanessa, was very sweet, calm and organized.. She took care of everything- when a groomsman�s button popped off right before the ceremony, she had it sewn on and back to him in no time. The bridal suite was amazing to get ready in- it was great to be at the venue and to just play all day- the hair and makeup people also really liked the space and set up. We did however, have to pay $150 to come in early (you get the 3 hours before your event for free), even though there was not anything else scheduled earlier in the day. The ceremony was beautiful and the reception was great- the food was delicious (we chose the brisket- very, very tender, and the herbed chicken which had an amazing cream sauce- yum!) Also we loved that we got served the food in really beautiful presentations while everyone else got to get what they wanted at the buffet. The lighting, tables and general ambiance were lovely.

The photography was great. I had a really specific idea of what I wanted and I emailed Jesus, the photographer, certain poses, and he had the list and made sure to get every shot that day. The photos were amazing. They took over 1500 pictures of the day, and we really, really liked them. They are quite expensive to order, but that is true of most photography studios.

The only problem that we had was with the DJ, Brian, who was unprepared and made some rude/ inappropriate comments to us and at the reception. We expressed our concerns to the owners, had a meeting with everyone, and we feel that he understands what our concerns were and that it will not happen again. Just make sure that he understands exactly what you want at your reception (are you ok with being in the middle of a dance circle and having your guests come and dance with you to �She�s a Super Freak�?) and what kind of music you want played. There are other DJs that are available through his company if you do not have a good feeling when you meet him. We did not know that when we met with him.

Overall, we had an amazing wedding and are so, so happy that we chose this venue. Everyone was impressed and I have heard multiple times from guests that it was one of the best wedding they have ever been to. Everything was taken care of for us, and it was a very impressive and elegant event. Read less

I was recently married at Emerald at Queensridge. I have no complaints. I had planned my wedding very quickly and was looking for an all package deal...and this was the place to go! This venue is VERY BEAUTIFUL and the price for the venue was very resonable! The staff were very freindly and accomodating. They made my day feel so special and wonderful! I felt stress free by going through this venue. I met with them once or twice and had everything planned and all I had to worry about was what were we all going to wear. My mother also liked the fact that we didnt have to run around like crazy trying to get the wedding put together. We made our payments to the venue and they took care of the rest. I really do appreciate their willingness to make my day fabulous!

If you want an easy stress free event I would highly recommend. The venue is all inclusive, the only vendors you need to find are a bakery and a florist. The bakery is easy because if you don't use their preferred bakery (rolling on the dough/ Leopoldo's) they charge a $3 per guest cake cutting fee. We used rolling in the dough and they did a great job. The staff was fantastic. Cicely was our coordinator and she was great. Very attentive and responded quickly to any questions I had. She was always patient at our meetings and never pressured us to buy extra things. On the day of the ceremony this goddess, Mimi, takes care of everything. Andrew, the DJ was awesome as well. He even sewed a button on my dad's tuxedo before the ceremony. These people are wedding professionals and will do whatever they can to make your event seamless. A few things to consider: the bridal suite will entice you but keep in mind unless you plan on purchasing extra time you likely won't have enough time to actually get ready there. We had 1 hour before the photographer arrived. We put our dresses on there, but already had hair and make up on. The other thing is that decorations are marked up incredibly high. Some things you may think as basics such as the aisle runner and cake stand come with rental fees. Anything with an actual flame you have to purchase from venue. I believe a single votive candle was $5. We used led tea lights purchased through our florist. We rented the photo booth with was a huge hit, but I would not reccomend spending the $150 for the scrapbook. It is a cheap photo album you could get at Michaels for $10. The photographers time was included, to have rights to our prints it was $1,250. All in all it was a decent value. We had some extras, mostly in food and beverage and for 112 guests we paid right around $17,000. It was easy and everybody had a great time.

My husband and I got married May 2012 and I have to say... our wedding day was PERFECT....FLAWLESS...STRESS-FREE! From the time I arrived to the venue and entered the Bridal Suite, one of the staff members was there to greet me, made sure I didnt need anything and periodically checked on me. He even gave me time checks. The same service was extened to my husband when he arrived as well. We both ordered deli trays and for our wedding party because we paid for early access to our suite and didnt want anyone to get light headed etc. I highly recommed it. The ceremony was FLAWLESS. It looked better than the pictures on the website. The Reverend was kind, personable and didnt skip a beat. The reception was amazing! I do wish that we would have paid for more time, because once the formal things are completed I felt like I didnt have enough time to party. Our banquet captain made sure everything stayed on schedule without making us feel rushed. We did purchase the all inclusive package, coldstone icecream station, photobooth and lighting package. There was a snag with our photobooth, as the attendent spelled my name incorrect. This was corrected but the first few pages of my album has my name spelled wrong on the picture strips.

The planning process was a little rocky as there was turnover, however the owners stepped in and made sure that at the end of the day we were satisfied.

I would recommend EAQ to any couple that is looking for a fairytale/glamorous venue that wont break your wallet. The staff is professional and helps ease the stress of wedding planning.

THE GENERAL MANAGER KENNETH IS AMAZING!!! :-)

I married at Emerald Gardens in June 2010. All was fabulous! Food, music, reverend, photography, and bridal suite were great! I liked the all in one stop shopping. We did not have to deal with outside vendors much. The only drawbacks: bathroom in groom's suite's bathroom had a smell coming from the drain, pictures are great but expensive, and outdoor chairs used in pictures were plastic- need an upgrade. I would highly recommend EG to anyone despite these issues. I was very pleased overall!

We enjoyed having our wedding at Emerald at Queensridge. They were really flexible in getting our engagement photos done at the last minute and using my bridal session for a special gift for my husband. In addition they really helped us out because we wanted a shot for the end of the grand entrance and they came up with a pretty tasty drink. We really enjoyed how this facility was family oriented and made our ideas come to life. Thanks again for a great time.

This is the perfect outdoor Ceremony to have especially as the sun sets. The Reception was wonferful with reaaly good food and a big facility with high ceilings for many family and friends. I didn't need to spend much on flowers or even chair covers because it looked good already. Everyone said it was the perfect dream wedding! There were so many other venues to choose from but this was the one to remember for a lifetime.

Pros-
To start off, this venue is absolutely beautiful. The ceremony site alone is the prettiest that I saw out of about ten we looked at in Las Vegas. Our theme was "magical forest" and ceremony site fit that very well, with lush greenery and river, bridge, and gazebo. Don't worry so much about outside heat, because there is a place inside for the guests to stay, and a water station set up outside for them. The reception site is equally nice.

The space feels very large and has very high ceilings. The venue comes with lovely pipe and drape on the walls and draping on the ceiling.
For the most part the staff were willing to work with us for everything that we needed, and they were professional and pleasant. If you are an emailing junkie like me, expect about a day or two for responses (sometimes). I LOVED the bridal suite, which is definitely a selling point for brides. It is very large, as plenty and sinks and mirrors, reasonable amount of seating. You can easily stick 20 people in this room. The groom's is much smaller.

The photo booth was a HUGE success! This was by far our guests favorite activity during the reception, and is well worth the money spent. The cold stone station was also a success, but a total rip off, but what isn't at a wedding? The station comes with only two flavors, and there is an extra $100 charge for swapping out flavors (no, you can't pay to add extra flavors). So I would say that this is worth while for your guests, not worth while for your wallet.

Cons-
Although the reception space is lovely, I will note that with around 70 people it felt a little bit too large and I feel it would be more comfortable with around 100 people. This is simply a matter of preference, but I think it felt more awkward in such a large space and made the dance floor a bit less cozy ;).

One problem with Emerald is the fact that so many different people work on various aspects of the wedding, that things get lost in translation. This caused us some problems. Don't expect the people who have been helping you plan and that you have been relaying details to be there on the wedding day. There will be totally new staff that you haven't met before. Even during the planning process we were not always working with the same planner, which I would have preferred.

We were most disappointed with the wedding cake. We paid a decent upgrade fee to have it look a certain way and sent a picture of the exact way we wanted it to look. What we received was a very simple and lazy interpretation of the picture we sent. I honestly really disliked the way it looked, and expected more from them because they boast about the expertise of their bakery.

Lastly this is not a con, just advice. I REALLY recommend adding extra time to the 4 hour reception package. This includes the 30 minute cocktail, making it a 3 and 1/2 hour reception, and this is not enough time, period. If I could have changed it, I would have added an extra hour, making that the cocktail hour, and having a 4 hour reception afterwards. That way, we could have mingled with guests during the cocktail, and guests could have had more casual drinking time to loosen up for dancing later. The time goes by so fast anyway, and you will want that extra time with your loved ones.

In conclusion, we had a great time at this lovely venue. I do recommend this to brides, and good luck! :)

Everything went off without a hitch. I would recommend this chapel to anyone. Whatever you are looking for they can do. Seriously, I spend weeks going over every single chapel in las vegas and none of them came close the quailty you would get here. Save yourself the time and stop looking around. This is the best. I look forward to going back several years from now to renew my vows.

I had my wedding at the Emerald at Queensridge on April 10th 2010. Not only was it a Gorgeous wedding, but it has been talked about from all of my guests that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. The room is done up so beautifully and they just added a light system and drapes from the ceiling. The food was outstanding and the service was great. Because this is a 5 star wedding site i have to be honest with some things that i was not thrilled with. First being the photography...The pictures turned out PERFECT that wasnt the problem it was the pictures they did not take that i was unhappy with. I did not get formal pictures with me and my bridesmaids individually and i didn not get one formal picture with my ushers in it. I also did not get a FULL group picture of the entire wedding party of everyone who walked down the isle. My other problem with my photography was they did not go around and take ANY pictures of my tables and my guests. I couldnt believe they did not go around and take pictures of the tables!!! although, the pictures they did take turned out beautiful i still am unhappy with the pictures i will never have. also, you are paying a lot of money for a wedding i think the $1000 for negatives is a bit pricey being i was never told the package didnt come with your pictures.

besides the frustration with the photography i have to say it was an outstanding place to get married. it was beautiful and the most magical day of my life. I wish it didnt go so fast!!! The staff was easy to work with and it really is like a one stop shop. They making planning a wedding very easy.

I couldnt believe they did not go around and take pictures of the tables!!! although, the pictures they did take turned out beautiful i still am unhappy with the pictures i will never have. also, you are paying a lot of money for a wedding i think the $1000 for negatives is a bit pricey being i was never told the package didnt come with your pictures.

besides the frustration with the photography i have to say it was an outstanding place to get married. it was beautiful and the most magical day of my life. I wish it didnt go so fast!!! The staff was easy to work with and it really is like a one stop shop. They making planning a wedding very easy. Read less

Emerald at Queensridge is a beautiful venue for a wedding and that proved true for our wedding. A beautiful outside ceremony with twinkling lights in the trees to a beautiful indoor ballroom with customized lighting. I love this place. The communication was great and while some of my requests were out of the ordinary, they worked hard to make them happen. The planners were awesome and fun and the staff on the day of were beyond helpful. The bridal suite is really wonderful and I was able to get there early so we really got to enjoy it. They really took care of things and I got a lot of compliments on the food. I would definitely recommend this venue to a friend.

We were very glad to have chosen Emerald At Queensridge as the venue for our wedding reception. The basic plan was already a very good value for the price, although we purchased additional options to further customize it to our theme and preferences. The layout was beautiful, elegant, and refreshing. Our wedding was held during sunset, so the guests enjoyed the waterscape surroundings during the daytime, and were wowwed by the lighting at night. The new LED lighting upgrade for the walls and newly draped ceilings was a must as it really topped off our theme colors and made the venue look so much more elegant, mesmerizing, and fun. Their staff was very friendly and helpful. What really stood out during the wedding was how efficient and quick they were to react to our urgent needs since each staff member was equipped with a walkie talkie. For example, at one point the bride needed a bandaid, and within a few seconds a staff member called for a bandaid on their radio and one was brought up in less than two minutes! The DJ was great in helping to select songs, and the emcee was very entertaining. The photo booth option was an absolute hit, and people started lining up for it and kept wanting to go back for more. And the staff helped to make it even more fun by supplying wild and silly props. The buffet style food was great, especially the salmon and brisket. It was definitely a memorable event, and the pictures were all proof of how beautiful and fun it was.

Good Deal. The add ons to make the day exclusively yours can start to get a bit pricey but overall not too bad. The photographers are great that are included in the package. The wedding cake was good but not great. We asked for silver polka dots but they weren't edible which i thought was weird.They also provided the DJ and he did a good job.

Emerald at Queensridge was quite a find. I looked at casinos, golf courses and other venues that I heard of in Las Vegas as a possible spot for our wedding, and Emerald was the only one I really liked. My husband and I could not think of a better place to have our wedding. Our wedding day turned out better than I thought it would. Having the ceremony outdoors in their garden area was just beautiful. Their bridal suite and groom suite are definitely useful especially for the habitual late arrivals like myself. The staff was pretty easy to work with and really helpful. And we heard nothing but great compliments from our guests.

I loved everything about this place until I received my pictures after the wedding. They charged me over $90 for an 11x14 print of my family. They told me I could purchase the negatives for $1000! It's such a shame, my wedding was more than perfect up until this point.

Emerald at Queensridge was a real gem when I discovered their great deal at a wedding expo held at the Mandalay Bay Hotel. It made it financially possible for me and my husband to afford the wedding since we were paying for it ourselves. They took care of all the bare essentials; dinner, cake, venue for ceremony and reception, dj, photography (huge!), and all the planning for it. With all the add on possibilities to embelish your wedding, they make it very convenient to do it all there! And their prices are very comparable to third party vendors. I would recommend this venue to anyone!

Great place to have wedding ceremony/reception. Beautiful venue. They provide all the vendors you need, making wedding planning a little less stressful. Great food. Photography prices are expensive. Staff was very professional and friendly, but follow ups with us and providing adequate information was inconsistent. The wedding rehearsal was rushed and I felt not enough time was spent on explaining everything that needed to be done during the ceremony. Overall, a beautiful venue with great staff!

Hello. The point of this review is to advise future Brides and Grooms to ask your wedding facility to have your card box (if you are using one) to be placed in a secure area!!! Perhaps near the cake table or at the head table would have been wise. Assuming the facility would do this as a general practice was a big mistake for us! Because of where the facility chooses to put the card boxes (at the entrance near the front doors which are accessible to anyone during the ceremony and reception) we had a portion of our cards containing money, checks and gift cards from family and friends taken from us. The day after our wedding, we had made a list of the guests and gifts. We noticed a large amount of guests that were left unaccounted for, which was very odd. We had checked to make sure nothing was left behind or fell out in the car, etc. and found nothing so we just let it be. The next day, my husband’s mother had asked what we received from family members and when hers was not mentioned she said I put a card with X amount of money in the card box. That sparked concern for the rest and we had to send out an embarrassing email to our guests saying an incident had occurred and if there was anything that could be stopped or cancelled, please do so immediately. Our responses solidified the fact that the items were in fact stolen. Our wedding party was violated and had to be inconvenienced by canceling checks and for the cash and gift cards, our guests gave their hard earned money to a thief or thieves. A couple of guests actually saw individuals that did not belong with our party and not part of the Emerald staff lingering outside of the front doors. We filed a police report and notified Emerald of the situation several times and they said they were not responsible, but would be on alert. Since we cannot get our wedding cards and wedding gifts back, at least we can attempt to help others from this unfortunate incident! Other than that our wedding was fabulous!

DO NOT HAVE YOUR WEDDING HERE!!!! I am the 4th wedding since October where money has been stolen out of cards. I had well over $780 taken from me. One of my cards was slit open, another was tampered with and re-sealed and the other three was just opened and the money removed from them. Ken was very receptive when I first told him and said he would catch the person. Almost 2 weeks later and no response. He has know about this since October and is just now doing something to try and fix it. DO NOT GO HERE. Someone is stealing from the inside. All my cards were moved up to the bridal suite, which has had the same code for over 12 years. When I told Ken he needed to change it, he responded that the code is iconic!!!!!!!! Its a beautiful venue, but the workers can't be trusted! Look for my story on the news.

There is no question that Emerald at Queensridge has a beautiful venue. From the outdoor ceremony site with the trees and lights, to inside the ballroom where it honestly transforms into something breathtaking. My wedding venue was beautiful, I spent months and months on every detail of the days events. I personally did not use alot of their services offered, as I had already booked my own vendors, however for some people this venue would be a nice 1 stop shop.
My dissappointment with Emerald was their lack of "Caring". I do not feel their is much leadership. Wedding venues have only 1 Chance to get the day right. And for me, like most brides, this is one of the most important days in girls life. I'm not going to pin point every detail that I was unhappy with - I think what spoke more to me than anything else was the lack of concern I received and the lack of accountability once my day was over. I don't feel their was appropriate leadership before my wedding, during the planning process or during my wedding. Nobody seemed to know what was going on - that stayed consistent from the time I booked with them. Lots of silly things. I should never have felt like I didn't matter - my day was over, they got paid - what do they care? That's the lasting impression I had with them. Very disheartening. No empathy, no accountability and the biggest.....No apology!

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY

Where do I start? To be quite frank, they did not meet up to my standards in services. I feel as if they discriminate because I DID NOT USE all THEIR services. In the end of the day, I am spending my money to plan and event that means a lot to me.

The thing that stands out most to me is the lack of management in their family owned business. I am in the hospitality industry so I know what to expect. I would highly recommend that they all go back to college and take classes in hospitality management. Their rude remarks about their clients and lack to professional ethics is enough for me to tell all my friends to never do any business here.

To say the least, I know a lot of people in the hospitality industry and I will make sure they do not use their services. So RENAE thank you for your memorable service!

I have a feeling Emerald at Queensridge either hires people to write positive reviews or their level of service fluctuates terribly. Although most of our guests seemed to enjoy themselves we, the bridal family involved in the year and a half long planning of this reception, were very upset by the time our daughter drove off with our new son-in-law. There was noone helping us with "the flow" of the reception and when we tried to get them to do services we were expecting, they ignored us completely. The sound system malfunctioned for the entire affair, the DJ was horrendous and completely unprepared and the quality of the plated dinner was forgettable. This place is run by a family who seem to be completely incapable of coming through with goods and services they charge a pretty penny for. We have been told over the weekend that they suffer with constant turnover in their staff which is not a good sign.

Listen, bottom line is this. We were not expecting perfection. We have married off four daughters and we learned a long time ago that no formal affair comes off without a regret but...EMERALD AT QUEENSRIDGE SHOULD BE ASHAMED FOR WHAT THEY DID TO US.

I originally came accross Emerald at Queensridge when searching online for a wedding venue. I read some pretty crazy horror stories, but the venue was so beautiful I had to see the place!

I arranged a tour and when we arrived at the venue I fell in love, it was stunning. I decided that I wanted to go with the venue regardless of the reviews. The owner that showed us around was ok, he talked a lot about himself and seemed like a used car salesman but we chose to ignore it because you normally dont have to deal with the owners of a venue. We talked briefly about the budget and he went on and on about how accomodating they are to any budget and they were willing to work with what we wanted to come up with a great price for us. The whole thing sounded really good at the time. He tried to sell us on hiring him for our photography and once he found out we already booked photographers and we were flying them down from Canada he was pretty offended. He went on about how great of a photographer he was but we stood our ground (pictures we seen in the office were nice, but nothing to write home to mom about). The owner also told us that with the package we were interested in there would be a planner to help us with everything. Again I mentioned that I had already been talking with CLM weddings to organize my event and he was not that happy.

After my tour at Emerald I went to meet my wedding planner (Christie McCoy for CLM Weddings - truly amazing wedding planner!) and we started to discuss what I wanted for the wedding day. She told me to look at a few venues before deciding but I was already sold on Emerald. She seemed hesitant when we were talking about Emerald and looking back I can see why.

We pretty much wanted to tell Emerald that we wanted their venue and food but nothing else. The style that they portrayed was very out dated and generic. They give you a list of vendors that they work with that seem to have the same style taste as them (NOT what we were looking for at all). So basically if you want a run of the mill - generic wedding - that looks the same as all other weddings they have planned then go with the coordinators at Emerald. Looking at the pictures of previous weddings the only thing that stood out as extremely different from wedding to wedding was the color.

We told CLM weddings what we wanted and from that point on we didnt have to deal with Emerald. I work long days and shift work and simply did not have time to discuss the details. Christie worked with my vision and just made it come true.

It wasnt until a month or so before my wedding that the Emerald nightmare started. I was asking them for my final balance because it was past the date that they told me it was due, but they hadnt sent me the bill. The fact that I had to ask them for the final bill is ridiculous, expecially since once they finally sent it they were threatening late charges! I was shocked and appauled by their attitude. When I received the final balance almost everything was wrong, there was typos and the menu I chose was different, they threw in "extras" for a ridiculous amount of money so then CLM weddings started going back and forth with them to fix the issues. After arguing with Emerald and having them be extremely rude to my wedding planner they refused to deal with her. I received a phone call from CLM saying that Emerald would not talk to her and needed to talk to me directly and they were still threatening the late charges if the issues werent cleared up immediatly. So while I was on holidays driving through traffic on my way to a show I had to call long distance on my cell phone to deal with the rude staff at Emerald. They ended up being in meetings so I had to call them back later.

It turns out the lady who was oh so rude to my wedding planner was the other owner that we had not met. She explained that the coordinator that we had been dealing with quit and that she was taking over my wedding.(hard to beleive that any of their coordinators put up with them) The owner started giving me major attitude and saying that my wedding was going to be horrible and that CLM did not have a design concept and didnt know what they were doing. She explained that I was not allowed to make changes to the final balance because we were less than 30 days out (because they chose not to send it until I reminded them). I stated that it was Emeralds error that caused all of the issues and she eventually changed what I wanted and told me it was not a problem at all (bipolar?). She told me that when it came to major decisions that she would need to talk to me directly and was not going to deal with CLM, then she followed that with saying how nice it was to deal with CLM and how wonderful they were... I was so confused and angry I just said good bye and hoped to never deal with her again. Who talks bad about the design and wedding planner to the bride who chose it all? Apparently Emerald at Queensridge does.

CLM ended up being able to finalize everything for my wedding and I was free from dealing with Emerald (YAY). When I showed up for the rehersal there was a young lady who looked like she was 12 that was supposed to be organizing everything (because for whatever reason they would not let CLM organize it). The lady didnt have a smile on her face and was rude to the whole wedding party. I filled out all of the forms required for the order of the wedding party and she messed it all up. I basically had to organize it myself. Not impressed at all. Although there were no other events being held the day of my wedding we were only allowed into the bridal suite a few hours before the ceremony so we did not use it. Yes it was beautiful but if you arent able to get the time to use it, whats the point of having it there?

Wedding day seemed to be flawless but I owe it all to CLM. The owners actually had the guts to take credit for the design concept when my photographers asked about it (after telling me it was going to be horrible).

Long story short, Emerald should hand over the keys to the venue and charge a safety deposit and then it would be a great venue to rent. IF you have to deal with them I strongly discourage you from going there. Disorganized, rude, opinionated and not willing to compromise. They have their own idea of how a wedding should be and they do not care if you disagree with them. If I could do it over again I would NEVER have chose Emerald at Queensridge.

I originally came accross Emerald at Queensridge when searching online for a wedding venue. I read some pretty crazy horror stories, but the venue was so beautiful I had to see the place!

I arranged a tour and when we arrived at the venue I fell in love, it was stunning. I decided that I wanted to go with the venue regardless of the reviews. The owner that showed us around was ok, he talked a lot about himself and seemed like a used car salesman but we chose to ignore it because you normally dont have to deal with the owners of a venue. We talked briefly about the budget and he went on and on about how accomodating they are to any budget and they were willing to work with what we wanted to come up with a great price for us. The whole thing sounded really good at the time. He tried to sell us on hiring him for our photography and once he found out we already booked photographers and we were flying them down from Canada he was pretty offended. He went on about how great of a photographer he was but we stood our ground (pictures we seen in the office were nice, but nothing to write home to mom about). The owner also told us that with the package we were interested in there would be a planner to help us with everything. Again I mentioned that I had already been talking with CLM weddings to organize my event and he was not that happy.

After my tour at Emerald I went to meet my wedding planner (Christie McCoy for CLM Weddings - truly amazing wedding planner!) and we started to discuss what I wanted for the wedding day. She told me to look at a few venues before deciding but I was already sold on Emerald. She seemed hesitant when we were talking about Emerald and looking back I can see why.

We pretty much wanted to tell Emerald that we wanted their venue and food but nothing else. The style that they portrayed was very out dated and generic. They give you a list of vendors that they work with that seem to have the same style taste as them (NOT what we were looking for at all). So basically if you want a run of the mill - generic wedding - that looks the same as all other weddings they have planned then go with the coordinators at Emerald. Looking at the pictures of previous weddings the only thing that stood out as extremely different from wedding to wedding was the color.

We told CLM weddings what we wanted and from that point on we didnt have to deal with Emerald. I work long days and shift work and simply did not have time to discuss the details. Christie worked with my vision and just made it come true.

It wasnt until a month or so before my wedding that the Emerald nightmare started. I was asking them for my final balance because it was past the date that they told me it was due, but they hadnt sent me the bill. The fact that I had to ask them for the final bill is ridiculous, expecially since once they finally sent it they were threatening late charges! I was shocked and appauled by their attitude. When I received the final balance almost everything was wrong, there was typos and the menu I chose was different, they threw in "extras" for a ridiculous amount of money so then CLM weddings started going back and forth with them to fix the issues. After arguing with Emerald and having them be extremely rude to my wedding planner they refused to deal with her. I received a phone call from CLM saying that Emerald would not talk to her and needed to talk to me directly and they were still threatening the late charges if the issues werent cleared up immediatly. So while I was on holidays driving through traffic on my way to a show I had to call long distance on my cell phone to deal with the rude staff at Emerald. They ended up being in meetings so I had to call them back later.

It turns out the lady who was oh so rude to my wedding planner was the other owner that we had not met. She explained that the coordinator that we had been dealing with quit and that she was taking over my wedding.(hard to beleive that any of their coordinators put up with them) The owner started giving me major attitude and saying that my wedding was going to be horrible and that CLM did not have a design concept and didnt know what they were doing. She explained that I was not allowed to make changes to the final balance because we were less than 30 days out (because they chose not to send it until I reminded them). I stated that it was Emeralds error that caused all of the issues and she eventually changed what I wanted and told me it was not a problem at all (bipolar?).

DO NOT PICK THIS VENUE! Not only are they inflexible but they will also not deliver as promised and will cause you much stress! I originally chose this venue because it is beautiful and close to my house. I was pleased that there was a beautiful ceremony and reception site in one location near a casino that would simplify the travels for our many out of town guests. If I would have known that once the venue received my money, they would be so disorganized and unhelpful I would have chosen another venue.

First of all, they are very unprofessional and every time you go into their offices, regardless of day or time, they will never recognize you and will usually be eating or have their food containers strewn about. This happened multiple times that I went by to make payments or when my scheduled final details meetings occurred. Even on the day of my rehearsal, when they assigned me a time, I showed up with my family and bridal party and they were eating "as usual" and acted like I completely surprised them. Furthermore, anytime you ask for anything, regardless of how small it may seem, there will be always be a fee. For example, I booked a make-up appt. with their preferred vendor and set the appt for 2:45. I mentioned this at the very disorganized rehearsal and was informed that I was not allowed on the premises before 3 since that was the "free 3 hours before the ceremony (even though the owner pointed out that they used to charge for these as well) and that if I showed up earlier it would be a $150 fee even though they had no other events there that day. I should've expected nothing less than that from a venue who insisted we pay a $200 tasting fee to try the food for our $18000 wedding.

My rehearsal had me near tears when the "coordinator" that they provided kept calling our bridal party (6 people) by the wrong name even though I had filled out all of the worksheets with the information. As we all stood around confused the coordinator went to the bathroom and abandoned us and my maid of honor had to take over. Needless to say, I was a bit on edge the entire day before and day of my wedding.

On my wedding day, the weather was ridiculously windy. I understand that Emerald cannot control the weather, however when we called early afternoon and asked if there was a contingency plan for the rain, they did not offer to move the ceremony inside but insisted that all was taken care of. When I showed up at 3 the wrong centerpieces were on the table and they had no idea where my favors were. My mother-in-law had to go downstairs and direct them as to what to do with the tables instead of help me get ready.

The ceremony went off without a hitch, despite the extreme wind, and the fact that the DJ did not cue up any of the ceremony music we requested. The reception began as expected but the DJ, Brian continued to play odd music that we did not request. By the time we entered our reception, Brian had found our paperwork and did play the correct song for our entrance and first dance. During the reception, the bridal party had to wait a long time to be served and many guests were finished eating before we received our main course since they were served buffet style which made it difficult for the groom and I to visit the tables before his mother-son dance. The DJ spent a lot of time talking throughout the reception and called the groom and me individually to the dance floor and encouraged our guests to dance inappropriately with us while playing lewd songs. We did not discuss this prior to our wedding and I not only was embarrassed but appalled when one of our groomsmen came out to dance with me to try and save me from embarrassment and the DJ called him a "fat Joey Fatone" in front of everyone which was completely out of line. There were other rude remarks to other guests that I later had to apologize for.

In conclusion, I felt that this venue was very unaccommodating and did not live up to the caliber of service that I expected on such a meaningful not to mention expensive day.
