Jenna and all of the staff at Geneva National were fabulous. We had our wedding reception and next morning brunch at the venue. Everything was meticulously set up exactly how we wanted and everything ran perfectly. Nothing didn't go according to plan!

Jenna is outstanding to work with and I would absolutely recommend!

Having our wedding at Geneva National was the best decision! The venue was stunning, the numerous services they offered were executed flawlessly and the food was to die for. Jenna, our coordinator assign to us by Geneva National, went way above and beyond! She took care of every request big and small and she did it all with a smile on her face and a bounce to her step. You can't go wrong choosing Geneva National!

Jenna Penkalski was our coordinator and she was absolutely amazing. We had a torrential downpour during our first look and we had back up plans. Jenna was there to answer any and all of my questions and I was THAT bride that emailed daily at some points. They food was AMAZING! Our guests raved about it! You think that it's impossible to have 200 medium rare steaks at the same time? Not at Geneva National. My husband and I are so glad that we chose Geneva National.

Our wedding was beautiful. The backdrop of lovely Lake Como cannot be beaten. They had lots of options for plates, buffet, finger foods, etc. to fit any budget. While our wedding planner was changed half way through the contract, we couldn't have been happier with the new planner. Stacey coordinated everything so perfectly. I had nothing to worry about the day of except walking straight and smiling. My husband and I are extremely happy with our decision. We searched over 25 venues in the Lake Geneva area, and Geneva National is by far the best price for the quality they offer.

They did an amazing job of having the reception look beautiful. Jenna handled all the details (including putting the fish in the center pieces & making sure none of them died). The food here was terrific!

We just had our Wedding at Geneva National last weekend. Our coordinator Jaffe was fantastic and very responsive. The staff went out of their way to make the day special. The food was great and lived up to the tasting. My husband loved the golfing facilities and arranged for an outing the day prior to the wedding. Overall - a great experience!

We decided to have our wedding at Geneva National for a few reasons, one they had amazing deals if you got married on a Friday, Sunday, or off season. Two the grounds are beautiful and you can have your ceremony and cocktail hour outside if you would like. Third, because they have the inns right on-site where everyone can stay together and not have to travel far from the venue. Lastly, the had a chef on-site so you don't have to worry about hiring a caterer.The wedding turned out to be perfect, Jaffe, our wedding coordinator was amazing she made sure I know everything that was going on and would remind me when anything was due or make sure I had everything booked. She was so great I couldn't have done it without her.As for the food, let me tell you I used to work as a caterer during college so I have a lot of experience with "wedding food," and Geneva National's food was absolutely delicious I don't know how the pulled it off, but everyone loved it. I even had to change two steak/salmon means to vegan meals 5 minutes before we sat down to eat and they did it no problem. If I had to get married again I would definitely do it here again, we already talked about renewing our vows for our 10 year anniversary and would love to do it here. Highly recommend!

An experience is what you want to have on your special day and a wonderful experience is what we received. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Geneva National. I received many, many compliments on my venue from all of my guests. Everything ran smoothly. Ask for Andrea! She's the best meeting coordinator I've ever had the luck to work with counting my work experience as well. She's a true professional!

Jessica at Geneva National did a great job of helping with the reception and keeping things on track before the wedding. I received so many compliments from my guests about how great the food was and how elegant everything was at the reception. Plus the drive up to the banquet halls through the golf course and the views from the rooms are just gorgeous!! I would highly recommend Geneva National.

Jessica, our wedding coordinator, was fabulous. She was very helpful and accomodating. She even got the decorations set up for the reception.
We had our ceremony outside and it was beautiful under the tent. We then moved inside for cocktails and the reception. The room was beautiful and the food was great. It was reasonably priced because it was a friday night.

Th food was amazing with a really unique selection. Everyone made the process very easy. They were organized and flexible. The views from the ballroom were gorgeous during sunset and evening. The decor was very tasteful and not overly ornate- something that complemented my color scheme and centerpieces perfectly. I would highly recommend this location to anyone.

We had our wedding at Geneva National in November and it was truly an amazing venue. Jenna (our event coordinator) was really great to deal with and the attention to detail was evident the night of the wedding. Everything went off as smoothly as possible and we had many guests tell us the food (especially the filet) was as good as any they've had anywhere. It was an unforgettable night due in large part to Jenna and the rest of the staff.

The location is gorgeous! Our wedding planning started out a bit rough, Jaffe was our wedding coordinator and was very unresponsive and seemed to get details mixed up very easily which was really stressing me out! Luckily I had met Andrea the first time I went to Geneva National, as Jaffe had to go out of town, so a few months into the planning I asked if Andrea could take over and she was AWESOME! Very organzied and on top of the details. The day of the wedding everything went as close to perfect as you can get. The only sanfu the day of the wedding was that the tables did not fit in the room the way they said they would so family members that we had sitting near the head table ended up in the back of the room. Overall though with the change in coordinators this place was awesome. I loved my wedding day and would encourge others to use this venue. Just don't be afraid to speak up if something isn't working.

There were 3 weddings at this venue the day I got married and they didn't tell me until two days before the wedding. This is a big concern when it came down to bathrooms and parking. Luckily, we had the biggest room so there were bathrooms in our area where no others could come.

The venue provides a wedding coordinator free of cost. Well thank god she was free because she was awful. This specific lady should not have been working in sales. She was quiet and meek and never even tried to upsale me. I had to ask what I could get if I was willing to pay extra (which we did purchase a lot of upgrades).

It started to rain during my outdoor pictures and the coordinator was awful! she told my family to go inside upstairs, and then the guests started following, and the groom and groomsmen never came! Needless to say it was a cluster f***.

Thank god they included 4 hours of open bar included in the dinner price, or this would have not been worth it.

Our experience with Geneva National was not a great as I had hoped. Our engagement was 6.5 months long and we had 3 different event coordinators the entire time. Their response times to phone calls and emails is completely unprofessional (over a week at times). The tone of emails and phone calls was often (for lack of a better term) 'bitchy'. We started and ended our engagement with Jenna and Jessica as our planners. However, we had Stacey for the majority of the planning. I was extremely displeased with her demeanor. We were over-charged on our final bill ($21/glass of house wine when they charge $45 for entire bottle). We have decorations missing. Their staff 'threw away' everything extra from our sweets table (however, I am 99% positive that it was eaten). I consider myself to be an organized person and even with that, all these issues occurred and have yet to be resolved. Beware if you are planning to book with them.

Geneva National Golf Club responded with the following comments:

Geneva National takes great pride in our level of service for all weddings at our property. We regret your experience was not all you had hoped.
We have since communicated with the bridal party to clear up any misunderstandings related to the sweets table and wine pour as the wine was $21 per bottle on continuous pour, not per glass. We appreciate your feedback and please feel free to contact me directly should you have any other issues.

DO NOT HAVE YOUR WEDDING HERE. The venue is beautiful, but the staff is incompetent. After 18 months of planning, we find out that the wedding coordinator had not ordered the venue decor with less than 2 weeks to go--we had to arrange. We were told she was too busy to work on our event with 10 days to go. We were over charged thousands of dollars, the wrong food was served and personal property that was supposed to be secured during the reception was missing. The coordinator left early on in the wedding and caused so much stress the last few weeks before the wedding, it is not worth it. Highly recommend not having your wedding here.
