Our wedding was 8/16/14 and Mt. Vernon made it really beautiful. They worked closely with myself and our wedding planner to make sure everything went on without a hitch. The staff was friendly and the ceremony site absolutely stunning. My only complaint is that they did not refund us for any food -- it wasn't in the contract, so they didn't have to. What happened was we needed to give a head count on the extremely low end 30 days before the wedding. We had 145 RSVPs at that time so we were confident that we could tell the venue 125 and be safe (we had to pay for whatever number we told them that day at a minimum). Over the next 2 weeks, we had over 30 people drop out so before we know it, my fiancé and I were under the number we had paid for! At that time, the venue had not yet purchased the food so it would have been a really nice gesture for them to refund the extra $810. But they weren't obligated to, so no big deal. Overall great experience.

If you want an outdoor garden wedding with a hint of being in the mountains, the Mount Vernon Event Center is a smart choice. There is so much value for the money. You not only have a beautiful garden with gazebo, fountains, ponds, and all the flowers you could possible want, but the indoor reception hall is large enough for dining and dancing with a beautiful picture window showing off the trees and mountains. Their catering staff is out of this world. No matter what choice is made on the menu, you cannot go wrong; the food is delicious.

Jean Lyman is one of the best wedding coordinators. She can be emailed or called at any time and is always willing to help out and answer any questions. We found her to be very knowledgeable and professional.She made my daughter's wedding so stress-free as she handled every detail and met my daughters every need. And she is such a delight to work with, with no disappointments.

We had our daughter's wedding here and due to all of Jean's help and knowledge, we had very few problems. She has so much information there didn't seem to be a question that she could not answer and she answered promptly either by email or phone. She recommended vendors for everything and provided phone numbers for all. The venue was beautiful and we were lucky to have perfect weather which also meant the flowers were beautiful. Food was great except they ran out of some and had to refill. We felt that it was reasonably priced for the great value we received. The biggest problem we had was that even though we were told that both Mt Vernon and the DJ had miss and the best would be used, the mic did not work during the ceremony and no one could here what was being said.

The Mount Vernon Event Center created the most beautiful wedding for my husband and I. From the beautiful garden and landscaping to the AWESOME food, service, bar and of course Jean, the best wedding coordinator ever. I cannot imagine a better place I would reccommend to anyone for the wedding day of their dreams.

Every single thing was taken care of, I felt that all we had to do was show up and everything was in order. The communication the event center had with our other vendors was also so helpful and gave us great piece of mind.

The Mount Vernon Event Center surpassed all of my expectations and we have heard from all family members and friends how it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to, and I owe so much of that to Mount Vernon Event Center!

A great thing about Mount Vernon Event Center is they handle MANY of the wedding details!! Food, linens, alcohol, seating, decorating, etc.
1) Food was DECENT. The carved roast beef was excellent. So was the house summer salad and sticky buns. The chicken entrees were lacking; we sampled the chicken Marsala and it reminded me of cafeteria food, we had the chicken florentine at the wedding and it was all right but not spectacular. The roasted potato medley was not great either, there was some purple stuff in it, that I had no clue what it was.
2) It was AWESOME that the venue handled all of the linens, centerpieces (I just brought the candles, and they set everything up), set out the favors, decorated the cake table, etc.
3) The backyard/gazebo was GORGEOUS!!! The flowers and birds and pond were just breathtaking, it was the most beautiful setting for our wedding!
4) Be SURE to read the rules/regulations carefully; no fake petals, no petals other than white, no bubbles, etc.

For the most part we were very happy about choosing Mt Vernon Event Center for our wedding reception venue. It is a very pretty facility & our guests really enjoyed the back garden area. There were a few things that my husband and I were disappointed in, however:

1) our table linens were extremely wrinkly & by the time we realized, it was too late

2) we ordered a cheese sauce for the steam vegetables & I guess they were not satisfied with the way it came out. Instead of remaking it, they brought our head table cookies as an apology. Not a huge deal but the veggies were bland without it & I had put it on our menu cards!

3) We bought a great deal of alcohol for our reception & were under the impression that that would be all that was available to our guests. The day of, we realize Mt Vernon had ALL of their alcohol available for purchase. We didn't want our guests to have to pay for ANYTHING! They did list the items we had purchased as "hosted", but if they were also going to sell their own stuff, they should have told us ahead of time!!

4) At our final walk through we had indicated that the top tier of our cake would only be cut if needed. Mt Vernon didn't follow this! The top tier was completely gone & we didn't get to have any of it! It was not necessary to cut the top tier because there was tons & tons of the bottom & middle tiers left. We were a bit disappointed in this.

5) Mt Vernon needs to work on their communication a bit! Every time we called, we had to leave a voicemail. Also, everytime we emailed it took several days to hear back from them.

Despite these things, we did have a very nice wedding reception! I love the bar, outdoor fireplace, large window, fish tanks & water features @ Mt Vernon. The food we selected was also very good & very reasonably priced. I also appreciated them allowing us to "bend" a few of their rules so that we could have the wedding we envisioned!! I would recommend MVEC to other couples, but just ask a lot of questions & be prepared for little things to arise.

In addition to being a wonderful venue, they also provide the catering. We went to a tasting every month to pick out our menu. We received nothing but rave reviews from our guests for not only the food, but for the staff and the venue all around. With the addition of a new event coordinator, they have become more detail oriented which brought the responsiveness rating back up to a 4.5.
