Alex Kosse was the event coordinator for my wedding, and she truly came through for me. Everyone was impressed that I was able to plan a wedding within 3 months, and a huge part of that success was due to Alex. She answered every question I had, was super friendly throughout. The wedding was beautiful, my guests had a ton of things to do at the festival, most people even came dressed up for the festival. I'd highly recommend anyone who wants a fun and different wedding to have it at the Ren Fest.

This is the most beautiful place to get married. You can go traditional, or dress in renaissance clothing. Before the ceremony, the queen gives you her royal blessing and a wine toast, with beautiful goblets as keepsakes.

We booked a year and a half in advance for the perfect July wedding date. We wanted a romantic place with great scenery for pictures and a place where a horse could take me, as a bride, down the isle to my new husband. This was the place. There was a pasture for my horse to graze after the ceremony. The food was great, the entertainment was great, and the setup was great. The only downsides were that there was little shade in the ceremony area and it was 95 degrees out, so almost everyone sat on the groom's side, even my family and friends, and there were no real toilets, only portapotties, which are worthless for a wedding dress. We went in the off season, which meant that we didn't have to deal with the bad smell the castle gets during the feast of fantasy, due to the lack of air conditioning. But the site was great, the grounds were perfect, everything was lovely, and they let me have my horse there. It was a perfect place for a beautiful wedding. And it was also very affordable, and they came up with vegan and vegan-gluten-free meals for all my guests! Everyone loved the food.

The Renaissance festival was fun but there are issues.

The Renaissance Festival is VERY ridged to work with on all issues. The following is just a couple of examples: 1) We could not purchase more than one block of time. You get a 2 hour block for $700 and that is it. 2) we had 150 attendees, so we ordered chairs for the event and the entire issue became a nightmare. I repeatedly asked Midway Rental and the Renaissace Festival to contact each other and neither did until 2 days before the event and this added an extra $200+ to the cost of the chairs. 3) We had many people who were comming in wheel chairs and health issues and the Festival would not allow our driver to drop people off at the door. They would not admit this but I think we were the largest wedding they have had to date.

The food we ordered was not good. The turkey legs were black and really tuff. They ran out of coleslaw 1/2 way through the serving line. I have eaten at other events put on by the Renaissance Festival and I know the food could have been much better.

They provided our music and an actor for the wedding. All the people they recommended were excellent to work with did a great job.

If you use the Renassiance Festival keep it small and do not go with Turkey legs
