Highgrove is the most organized and well thought out event venue I have ever had the opportunity to deal with. I have planned many events in my years of working in Women's Ministry and my daughter chose High Grove to make her wedding easy and enjoyable for me. It was a no stress, no drama, beautiful day thanks to the staff and our coordinator Angela. Every detail was orchestrated with ease and without worry. My favorite memory was the ladies in the wedding party hanging out and laughing before the wedding began because there was absolutely nothing to worry about. Well done High Grove and staff. You are amazing.

Highgrove is quite simply the most perfect wedding venue. My husband and I, as well as our loved ones, feel so fortunate to have celebrated our marriage in such a beautiful setting and with the assistance of the incredible staff at Highgrove. From the first open house, we were blown away by the gorgeous scenery, the friendly staff, the tasty food, and the lovely details in every corner of the venue. We took advantage of the frequent open houses and fun additional events hosted by Highgrove staff to help plan our vision for the wedding. The staff were always available to answer questions, provide suggestions, and make us feel even more excited for the big day. Our coordinator, Angela, was always so sweet and spent time ironing out the details with us and confirming the wedding day plans with each of the vendors. It was a huge relief to know that someone was there to make sure everything ran smoothly. As the bride, the wedding day was everything I could have hoped for and more. From the fall colors to the head table to the little details, everything was absolutely stunning. Being new to the area, our guests were almost entirely from out-of-state and not familiar with Highgrove. I can’t count the number of compliments we received from our guests about the beauty of the venue and the hospitality provided by the staff. The food was honestly the best wedding food I have ever had, and the extra items we ordered, like milkshakes, were a big hit with our guests. While many people comment that the wedding day goes by too quickly, we felt that we were able to enjoy every moment of the day with our friends and family since the staff were so well organized and accommodating. A special thank you to Angela and Vicky for their exceptional service. We are very grateful to have so many wonderful memories of our special day.

Being the mother of the bride, you always dream of your daughter’s wedding day! When my daughter got engaged she knew she wanted to have her wedding at Highgrove. Two years prior to her engagement she had attended a friend’s wedding there. She came home from that wedding and told me Highgrove was the prettiest place she had ever seen, and would love to know one day she could be married there. I remember going to see it for the first time and thinking how beautiful it was, and now I understood why she was so impressed with the venue. The grounds were immaculate and the view from the pergola was breathtaking. That day we decided it was definitely the place she would be married. We met with the director Susan who went over all the information we would need to move forward with planning her wedding. Soon afterwards we met with Angela our wedding coordinator who helped us with all the details of the wedding. She was so easy to work with and always available to answer any questions or concerns we had. On the day of the wedding she worked hard to see that the bridal party had everything they needed. Also, she took such great care of every little detail concerning the wedding ceremony and reception. The reception was beautiful and the food was delicious! Chef Vicky did an amazing job at making sure everyone of our guest were served well. It was a beautiful wedding and a wonderful day that was made perfect by the help of the staff at Highgrove!

Highgrove was absolutely amazing and wonderful. It blew away all of our expectations, from the first open house visit, to the wedding planning process, to the wedding day. The staff takes great care of and pride in their venue and ensures the day is as special and free of distress as possible.
By having our wedding here, Highgrove provided top-quality cuisine, personal and professional attention during the planning process, wonderful amenities, and a vetted list of professional vendors in the area. Highgrove assigns a wedding coordinator to each couple to answer any questions and make sure the wedding day plans come to fruition. The chef (also the owner) works with each couple to create and provide a menu with outstanding options for guests with and without dietary-restrictions. Many of our guests gave great compliments to the setting and the food. As a vegetarian couple, this was very important to us.
It was incredibly pleasant to have spacious rooms for both the bride's and the bridegroom's parties to prepare and get dressed on site. Highgrove also provides a lot of beautiful, optional and complimentary decorations, as well as tables, chairs, place settings, linens, and more. Working with Highgrove will result in the most breathtaking wedding you can imagine, guaranteed.

I could not have asked for a better venue for my dream wedding! Highgrove is absolutely wonderful and I cannot say enough good things about it. Although it is a little on the expensive side, it was well worth every penny. The venue itself is gorgeous. The staff is phenomenal. Although they often have 3 weddings within one weekend, I never once felt like mine was "just another wedding" on their to-do list. The staff went above and beyond to make sure everything was just as I wanted. Abby, our coordinator, took care of everything during the day of the wedding. Never once did I have to worry about being in the right place at the right time, or gathering the bridal party. She took care of everything! Last but not least, the food was absolutely delicious. We have had many people tell us our wedding was the best one they have ever been to--I credit this to the hard work of the Highgrove staff! We are so happy we chose Highgrove for our wedding--I would recommend it over and over again!

Having my wedding at Highgrove was a dream come true. Ever since I first visited Highgrove at one of their open houses, I fell in love with the beautiful landscape and decor. I knew I wanted an outdoor wedding, and the location overlooking the lake was just breath taking. The ballroom, which is the rain site as well as the reception area, is just as beautiful. I'm so glad I chose Highgrove because it did rain on my wedding day. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise. I was able to have my ceremony in the ballroom and it created more of an intimate, romantic feel which coordinated with my theme. The staff at Highgrove were phenomenal and very professional. They were able to recreate my vision to fit the ballroom instead of outside. It was perfect! The food was delicious and was displayed in an elegant way. I definitely recommend this venue to any bride! You will not be disappointed!

The Highgrove made our wedding experience very easy by offering an all inclusive package. Which I strongly encourage all brides to do. It made the wedding planning so easy and efficient. We were able to select top vendors from a large selection, which truely made our wedding a day that we will forever remeber and a day that our guest enjoyed to the fullest.

Abby (our fantastic day or wedding coordinator) and Susan were instrumental to making our day run seamlessly. My husband and I didn't have to worry about a thing, which made the day that much more enjoyable.

If you are considering the Highgrove as your wedding venue, I encourage you to go to thier open house events. This will give you a great idea of the venue, the food (which is fantastic), and the level of service and attention you will receive.

Best of luck!

P.S. Once you see the place you won't look any further :)
