We held our daughters wedding at Indian Springs a couple weeks ago and I would have to be the first to admit that I was nervous with the negative reviews out there regarding Cass and Kosch catering. I feel like I have to take the time and make sure there to give our opinion, it was absolutely AMAZING!! We got tons of compliments, everything was perfect.

Cass was very quick to respond to every email and was very accommodating. We did the "hog heaven" BBQ menu and it was delicious! A big key for getting the best of the foods offered is to go to the taste testing. Though a lot of the BBQ menu is not offered for tasting, most of the sides are and some were great while others were not. Our food was terrific!

Tamra at Indian Springs was great in the beginning but the day we met up with her to go over our set up, she was slightly difficult. Our daughter had envisioned how she wanted everything and had drawn in out, Tamra changed most of it. We had 20 guest tables (8 chairs at each) and a head table for 10. Our daughter really wanted the head table along the wall with the window, just so much prettier there. She did not want it there and thought we should talk with our photographer per the glass being behind us. Our photographer had no problems with it being there. Our DJ wanted his booth in the far right corner, Tamra said no, she wanted him behind the dance floor with part of his booth actually being ON the dance floor (though not a lot). Long story short, Tamra was not the one that handled the set up on the Friday before the wedding, Tammy from Kosch did and she was beyond amazing. She went above and beyond and made everything go so smooth, I just can't praise her enough. Kosch is lucky to have her. The head table was against the wall with the windows, our DJ fit perfectly in the corner, EVERYTHING was PERFECT.

I would highly recommend having your wedding and reception at this facility. The food is pricy but it is worth it! Gorgeous venue. :)

I was a guest at this wedding. Awesome venue, great view, couldn't have been happier with the food. I am definitely considering this venue for my wedding. I contacted the caterer and immediately received info. Can't wait to start planning my big day here!

Kosch catered our wedding, and at first we were a little apprehensive being that they were the contract caterer (meaning we had no other options). We were dead set on the venue, so we agreed to Kosch. They only have samples of the food once a year, so we had to go to another wedding to pick up a to-go box to sample the food, which felt a little awkward, but was fine. We are glad we did, because it changed our mind on what to order for our wedding.
In the office, we dealt with Cass, who is the events coordinator. He guided us throughout the process, and was very responsive to e-mails (we did most of our interaction that way); most he answered in a few hours’ time. He saved us money when I was getting a little overzealous with ordering booze (we never ran out) and we actually ordered the perfect amount.
The food was phenomenal. We had a buffet style wedding, and it was delicious. Many of our guests have made it a point to tell us that the food was awesome. They also did our wedding cake, which was beautiful, moist and delicious. We really couldn’t have asked for more.
The onsite staff at our wedding was awesome as well. The onsite wedding coordinator was great, she helped us with everything we needed the day before and day of-she really went above and beyond and was very kind. The wedding cake decorator stayed late to do some last minute flower work with the cake (I was about 40 minutes late with the fresh roses) and was very nice and chatty with my Mother. The bartenders were super friendly and genuinely looked happy to be there. They accommodated our guests’ needs with ease and grace, with zero problems. The wait staff was constantly there to clean up plates or glasses, and again looked happy to be there.
It should also be mentioned that Kosch provided all of our linens (including chair covers with bows), dishes, glass wear and centerpieces (cast iron light trees) which were perfect.

We had our wedding at Indian Springs recently, and it was absolutely beautiful. The guests raved about the secluded, natural gem of a location and the gorgeous event room. In terms of a lovely location, this place is second to none.

Tamra was very helpful in showing us around and explaining the different ceremony and room options (we had our ceremony under the tree). The day-of coordinator, Jamie, was fantastic and took excellent care of our guests.

My experience with Kosch was a bit mixed, however. The communication with Cass, the guy from the sales office, was poor--due to some staffing changes shortly after we booked, we were never told about the once-a-year group tasting. There was no apology until I made it clear that we were NOT happy. (Let me note that I'm usually very forgiving about these kinds of oversights, but for a rather important event like a wedding, a sincere apology up front would have gone a long way.) Cass was able to arrange for us to stop by the kitchen before another wedding and pick up a to-go box of whatever was on the buffet for that night. The food was rather unimpressive, which concerned me at the time.

Ultimately, we picked menu items we hadn't tasted, and they actually turned out wonderfully. The food was fresh, hot, and tasty. Several guests commented later about how good it was. I have to give MAJOR credit to Teresa, the catering manager, and her staff. They were so kind and helpful throughout the day, and took excellent care of our guests, especially those with mobility or dietary issues. Teresa called me the week of the wedding to go over details, and she was clearly on top of everything. So in the end, in spite of a few initial problems, I was very pleased with the results--great food, beautiful setting, and excellent service from the catering staff.

I would definitely recommend the venue, but I would just advise you to be proactive about communicating with the Kosch office.

Indian Springs Metropark is a beautiful venue for a wedding. We had an amazing time and the service from the site was so helpful. THe only problem is that you have to go with their caterer Kosch who they have a contract with and they are so unprofessional and rude. The event coordinator Cass is uninterested in supporting any kind of request and with the amount of money you pay to the caterer, they should be more then accommodating

The venue was absolutely beautiful and perfect for us. We received so many compliments from our guests. Tamra was very easy to work with. However, we found out less than a week before our wedding that their outdoor sound system was broken and likely wouldn't be repaired before our wedding. Basically, we were on our own if we wanted music for our ceremony. My biggest complaint about the venue was that they have an exclusive contract with Kosch catering. Kosch was difficult to work with and overpriced. They don't offer many options, and they were unwilling to work with us. They only offer one tasting per year, and since we signed our contract after the tasting, we were just out of luck. We literally just randomly picked our menu. Kosch's only redeeming quality was their day-of coordinator, Theresa. She was absolutely AMAZING. She helped us out so much, and was incredibly nice. I felt like she genuinely cared about making our day perfect. I really wish Indian Springs would consider either not renewing their contract with Kosch or allowing a couple different caterers to work with the venue to give people more options.
