The Landmark venue is magical. It is so beautiful that you don't have to do a lot of decorating to make it special. It speaks for itself. It was amazing how beautiful everything turned out. Simple elegance in a castle.

I have loved this building since I was a little girl. I contacted Amber Fish who from the start made planning my wedding a breeze! The day before my outside wedding it was dumping rain, Amber put my mind at ease with having the indoor area staged and ready for back up. I would highly recommend this vendor to anyone! It would usually take a day or so to get a response but was always able to get my questions answered.

We had an amazing wedding at the Landmark. Amber Fish was an absolute joy and incredibly helpful in making our day so great we are very appreciative to her. We were a little disappointed in the additional expenses we were charged. The last minute cake plates were a huge expense that put a damper on our experience. But we have only great things to say about Amber.
Sincerely,
Jason Bosshart

From the beginning until the end I couldn't have asked for a more freindly and helpful staff. Everyone I had contact with at the Landmark was very helpful, friendly and professional. My daughters wedding turned out beautiful and everyone had a wonderful time. I received so many compliments from family, friends and other vendors that had not seen the Landmark prior comment on the beauty of the location. Thank you so much for your help.

Wonderful venue. Everything was so classic and pretty, and the staff are very friendly. They answered all my questions promptly and thoroughly and even after many many emails from this frazzled bride, managed to stay on top of the game and pulled off my wedding with few hitches.

Amazingly beautiful venue for our reception! Prices seemed steep, but the view of the water and the architecture of the building are stunning. Made for great pictures. Had rooms for the bride and groom. Had many beautifully decorated rooms that you could pay extra to have access to for lounging/photos.

Facility was old but is kept up nicely. Had lots of fun here!

Thank you! We agree that Landmark is amazingly beautiful and 1926 is old, we are lucky that it has been maintained so well for almost 90 years!

We had our wedding last August 2012 at Landmark Event Center. It was not on a weekend for it was a bit pricey for us but on a weekday the price we were agreed to pay was the best deal out there! It was an awesome experience! Amber was very easy to work with! We were allowed to come the day before to set up which gave us plenty of time for everything! Beautiful venue, got a lot of compliments from our guests on finding such a beautiful location to have our wedding. The only down side of the whole place was the outside chairs weren't very nice, but we were shown pictures in advance and were able to rent ahead of time. Would recommend this vendor for friends and family!

We loved having our wedding and reception and the Landmark. Amber was amazing to work with, it is beautiful, and much less expensive then other vendors that aren't nearly as nice as the Landmark.
Amber is by far one of the greatest parts about the Landmark. She was good at answering e-mails (important for a bride who was living in another state until 3 months before the wedding), she allowed our order of bulk flowers to be delivered to the Landmark before the wedding, and she was so great about dealing with problems that popped up.
We has a miss-communication about the chairs provided for the outdoor ceremony. I somehow got under the impression they had nicer white padded folding chairs, in reality they only have basic, sub-par looking metal folding chairs. Of course we didn't realize the misunderstanding until the morning of the wedding. Amber allowed us to move the ceremony inside to the auditorium. Though our outdoor decor we had didn't really work inside, overall it looked much nicer then the metal chairs would have.
The only downside was I didn't realize that there would be other people with access to the building while we were in there. Though we didn't have any wedding crashers (that we know of at least) there were other people using the kitchen when we were setting up, and there were strangers roaming the halls/grounds as we were taking pictures the day off. They seemed to disappear by the time guests started showing up. Like I said, we didn't have problems during our ceremony and reception- but don't plan on having the place all to yourself the entire time.
Overall we were extremely happy with the Landmark and Amber Fish.

I was so pleased with this venue- after I toured it I knew I HAD to get married at the Landmark. It has historical charm while also feeling very warm and welcoming. Gorgeous places for photo opportunities on the property as well and you have access to the whole building for pictures. I also really enjoyed working with Amber Fish, event planner/coordinater at the Landmark- she's full of great advice and fun ideas! I've been recommending this venue since my wedding last July and will continue to do so!

We had a wonderful experience at Landmark on the Sound and couldn't imagine a better place for us to get married. Staff was friendly and accommodating all throughout the process. Beautiful historic building with amazing views of the Sound. Great for your wedding pictures alone! We used both the banquet room and the auditorium as a chapel and the setup worked wonderfully. Highly recommend!
We even recently attended a wine festival at the venue just so we could reminisce about our big day a year ago.
