Lisa at the Governors Club was so great throughout the entire planning process. Everyone raved about how beautiful the wedding was, and many said it was the best wedding they've ever been to. Everything went seamlessly from start to finish, and the best part is that I wasn't stressed the least bit before the wedding. I knew that everything was under control, and I didn't have to do anything! Thank you, Lisa and the Governors Club, for making our wedding night everything we wanted and more. We had a blast!

Lisa Johnson Director of Sales and Catering at the Governors Club & staff are top notch. Venue is beautiful. Grounds are magnificent and the terraces and areas used during the reception are breathtaking! The cocktail party was raved about by family & friends. Drinks were strong. The hors d'oeuvres were grilled chicken wrapped in bacon(chicken was a large piece wrapped in one piece of bacon), Brie with raspberry on pastry shell, BLT on toasted rounds and potato asiago rounds (which were to die for) The photobooth was a good addition and kept it flowing. Lisa worked well with Steve Stowe our DJ (from Joe Bunn) who also works at Classic rentals both were extremely helpful with the rentals of the black chiavari chairs, linens and black & white dance floor. Food presentation at each station was very elegant. Chef's at each station were knowledgeable and personable. We did an asian station complete with stirfry and everything imaginable beef chicken & shrimp, which was made to order for each guests, mexican station with chicken & beef as well as an array of cheeses and toppings, shells and tortillas, italian pasta station with 3-4 kinds of pastas (the cheese tortillini was excellent) He would stirfry a pasta dish customized for each guest adding chicken or italian sausage fresh spinach, artichoke and many other veggies as well as cheeses and sides , beef tenderloin carving station A+ as beef was like butter with a fresh caesar salad , breads. Guests commented that the taste and tenderness of the beef tenderloin was superb. Of course my favorite was the shrimp & grits. The shrimp was prepared fresh and grilled on the spot and added to cheese grits with many toppings. Everything so fresh and custom and the lines moved. People returned for more and they never ran out of anything.

Lisa Johnson at Governors Club was WONDERFUL to work with and we could not be happier with the care and planning she took with our wedding. We received so many compliments during the reception and the days afterward about the beauty of the venue, how wonderful the food tasted and the attentiveness of the staff. I can seriously not recommend Lisa Johnson and Governors Club enough- it's a beautiful venue and perfect for a Chapel Hill wedding!

My wedding at the governors club was amazing and I am so grateful to them for making our wedding so special! The clubhouse and grounds are absolutely beautiful (we had cocktail hour on the back porch overlooking the golf course and lake), the food was amazing, and Lisa Johnson- the wedding coordinator there, really made sure every detail was perfect. I have a gluten allergy and wanted a completely gluten-free wedding- Chef Ben went out of his way planning the perfect, delicious menu for us, and even learned my recipe for gluten free rolls that were served! It was obvious that they really take pride in their events and go out of their way to make your wedding perfect. I really liked that I wasn't just forced to select options from a brochure, but they were willing and excited to accommodate any requests I had (ex- a made-to-order guacamole bar at cocktail hour). I highly recommend having your wedding here!

The perfect venue. I couldn't have asked for anything more. From the first visit to see the club until the moment we were stepping into our getaway car, working with the Governors Club was a dream. Lisa Johnson, the event coordinator, was absolutely fantastic. She was very responsive and did a great job tackling our requests and handling all the vendors. If you enjoy wedding planning (i.e. selecting vendors) but don't want to worry on the day of the wedding, this is great! A true package deal and then the club makes sure everything runs smoothly on the day of, without having to spend the extra money for a wedding planner. Planning was really fun with a tasting with the chef and a walk through the club. We really wanted an ice cream wedding cake which the club handled with no problem (they had a giant freezer, we got the cake from Ben and Jerry's). We had stations for dinner which were delicious and there were plenty of people on hand the night of the reception to make sure everything was perfect. My groom and I even had our own personal attendant to make sure we were eating and drinking- she brought us plates of food and drinks all night long! Combine this with the breathtaking beauty of the grounds and it made for a perfect day. For a gorgeous day with no hassle, please take my recommendation and have your wedding here.

The Governor's Club was a perfect site for my 'Southern Glam' wedding. From start to finish, Lisa, the event director was excellent to work with and helpful with all of my questions, stresses, and needs. The day of the wedding the bridal suite was gorgeous and filled with a delightful lunch buffet including mimosas! The staff was more than accomodating for the entire day from adjusting the temperatures in the room, to rounding up an iPod speaker with smiles on their faces the entire day, of course! The ceremony site was simply gorgeous and all guests of the club were respectful of my day and the location of our event. The reception was set up so formal, yet not stuffy at all. It was an absolute dream. The food .. oh, the food! My wedding guests still (5 months later) are going on and on about what a wonderful meal that was prepared! I couldn't get enough. You must try the shrimp and grits! And if you want something special on your menu - just ask - nothing seems impossible at this fantastic venue. Our only regret - is that we weren't guests at the wedding! We were so busy with our special day that it would have been nice to sit back and enjoy the event! I would absolutely tell you to move forward with the Governor's Club - the beauty and the service say it all. Finally, Lisa was a dream to work with! Happy Wedding!

Everything turns out great! The guests loved the food and how beautiful the venue was. If Lisa actually answered emails and phone calls, I would've rated this at a perfect score. It gets frustrating when you have questions and they never get answered because your calls never get returned. We were also told that we would have 4 hors d'oeuvres, but found out that there was only 3.

We got talked into using the club because it was so close to the church we had the ceremony at and the family really wanted to use it. I am really happy that we did. the ballroom was beautiful and it was nice to have space for everyone to get ready on site. You are required to use there catering staff, but they did a great job. They made special meals for the few vegetarians on the spot and were really willing to help us with anything we needed. Lisa Johnson is their current coordinator and she did a great job taking care of everything and only asked me a few questions to make sure everything was where we wanted it for the reception but I was able to focus on getting myself ready with very little distraction.
It is pricey, but it actually wasn't as expensive as I expected it to be.
