Our wedding would never have come together if it weren't for The Orchards Hotel and the absolutely incredible Rebecca. She went out of her way to understand the type of wedding we wanted, and then worked with us to make it happen. She handled all the rentals, finding us great deals along the way. On the day of the wedding, she couldn't have been better. Responsive, available by all means -- and when we forgot to check in, we could always rely on her to give us a call or shoot us text to keep everything on track.

Our food was to die for -- Chef used all local ingredients, and worked with us to adjust the menu up until the last minute to ensure we had the best produce and best food possible. Weeks later, I'm still getting emails from friends raving about the smoked salmon and all else. We had an Asian fusion menu, and Chef was up for the task. Our cocktail hour dim sum was awesome! They thought through so many details -- from including a hoi sin glaze on our ham, to including star fruit and dragon fruit for our breakfast the next day. It's really these little touches that puts these guys above other vendors we've dealt with. Everything they said they could do, they did—and more.

Wait staff was friendly, courteous, smart and on top of everything.

Our stay at the hotel was also flawless. They made us feel at home, pampered—like the king and queen you want to be on your wedding day.

Truly, we owe so much of the success of our wedding to The Orchards—including the fact that the whole event ran on time! We can't say enough positive things. If you have the chance, we highly recommend working with them.

Not only was my bridal shower brunch in May of 2013 phenomenal and perfect in every way, but our outdoor cookout rehearsal dinner in July of 2013 could not possibly have been better! The staff was incredibly attentive and professional, the food was unbelievable, and we felt like we were part of an extended family. It was such a relief to know that our family members didn't have to worry about food allergies (because everything was clearly labeled), and our youngest guests had room to run around the courtyard and still be safe. We will surely recommend this venue to our friends who are getting married in the next few years!

The venue was absolutely perfect! It was decorated tastefully and up-to-date. We were working with a gold and white/cream colored theme so our table centerpieces were enhanced by the beauty of the banquet room. Everything was in place as discussed beforehand. Wait staff were abundant, courteous and timely.

The buffet dinner was exceptional. Guests are still commenting on the variety of foods offered. Every item served was delicious and there was a dish for everyone, regardless of food preferences. The dessert buffet table was a new twist for many wedding guests and it allowed them to sample more than one item. The buffet area was well organized and allowed guests to move seamlessly along the buffet line. Food was plentiful and served at correct temperatures.

The wedding planner (Rebecca Lennon) suggested the florist. Outta the Box Blooms is a new, local business and the centerpieces were spectacular. Two centerpieces were minimally damaged during delivery and the florist made a substitution (at her own expense) and the difference was undetectable. They were exactly as ordered and were delivered and placed in the venue by the time that we had arrived.

Lighting and decor were both ideal for the event.

For unique services we were offered a sitting room on the same floor, so that we could capture some much sought-after family photos. The groom is a photographer and was setting up photos with a critical eye. The spacious, tastefully decorated room that we were offered was easily accesible and provided the perfect background for photos that will be enjoyed for years to come. There were separate tables for both the guest seating cards and the gifts; both were strategically placed int he area where we greeted our guests.

The orchards was a beautiful venue for our wedding 9/8/12. Rebecca was amazing to work with. She was professional, accommodating and absolutely fantastic on the day of the wedding. It rained so we had to move indoors and all went smoothly, leaving us to enjoy every moment of our day. Thank you so much to the Orchards and especially Rebecca! You're fantastic at what you do!

This is one of the most amazing spots to have your wedding. Whether it's outside in the warm weather in the courtyard surrounded by flowers and a pond, or inside warm and toasty on cold days snuggled with the warmth of the fireplaces. The Orchards is so welcoming and warm, the food is out of this world and the employees are there for whatever you need. They will make sure that this day(s) goes my as smooth as possible.

Our Recpetion was held at the Orchards Hotel on a cold wintery day. The food was buffet style and catered by the chef. Our guests could not get over how delicious the food was and how the meat melted in your mouth..( Great Job Chef, Thanks again!)The ball room was set up so niceley with the decor that I had picked out, and given to the wedding planners to display. Our theme was snowflakes/pinecones, I could not beleive how well they had displayed all of our decor and centerpeices.

Heidi and Rebecca (Sales) I want to Thank you so much for making "Our Wedding" such an amazing and wounderful time. We appreciate all the time and hard work you put into it! It was truley a time to remember.

Later in the evening we had visited the bar downstairs with some friends and family. We had some great drinks from an amazing bartender Greg! We also decided to get a bite to eat. The cheese plate is our favorite! Different cheeses plated with an assortment of crackers and spreads...Yummm.

My rating from 1-100 for The Orchards would be 100+

I can't express enough how helpful and fexible Rebecca Lennon and her staff was with our wedding. We had to change the location not once,not twice but three times in THREE days. A chain of terrible events due to weather and other things caused great stress on our family. Rebecca was so helpful and willing to make everything work to please the bride and groom.
