I have one word for Julie, AMAZING! Of all the venues we have looked at, Julie has been the most accommodating coordinator so far. She is very attentive to detail and is very enthusiastic about her work. Since the first day we met her, she has been very helpful in our planning process with her creative ideas and willingness to help in every department! When I came in to see Persimmon for the first time, Julie knew I wanted a wedding reception that was completely outside. When she showed me the banquet hall they have, I was blown away with their deck and the gorgeous view. Julie was never pushy, she gave me many options to work with. In the end, I found another venue that was completely outdoor. However, if anyone is looking for a wedding venue that is indoor, THIS IS THE PLACE:)

Thank you Julie,

Vadim and Natalie

AH-MAZING.

My husband and I eloped to Hawaii on a budget and came back looking for a place to have a place to celebrate. We were so frustrated to call venue after venue, only to find that we would basically be paying for an entire wedding! From the first phone call with Julie Weiss at Persimmon, I was BLOWN AWAY by how accommodating and helpful she was. Julie and her awesome team worked tirelessly with my husband and me, planned the perfect menu (which was delish, by the way!), navigated through all of the details and our OCD ways - and we were a LITTLE high maintenance ;o) - and helped to ensure we had the PERFECT EVENT.

The best part of our day? The full moon over the mountain that night! It was simply breathtaking, and I couldn't have scripted it better. Our friends and family will be talking about this venue and our reception for years to come!

Julie and the Persimmon staff were awesome.We had the most beautiful reception. I have a few suggestions to make the ceremony site more appealing. But we spent most of our time at the reception. The food was great!! Hated to have to see it go to waste. I am not fond of a tip jar at the bar, did not want guests to feel obligated especially since we had already covered the service fee.

This place was beautiful for my outdoor wedding. Julie, the event coordinator, was very helpful with the whole process. She was very organized and worked hard to make everything perfect on the big day. On the wedding day Julie was out setting stuff up and running back and forth so I wouldn't have to. The wedding turned out great. Thank you to Julie and the staff at Persimmons Country Club!

From the moment we met Julie Weiss, she showed the kind of interest in our daughter's wedding planning that was just beyond expectation. We knew we needed support in making the multitude of decisions for the evening candlelight ceremony and reception. She was able to help us build our vision, suggest vendors, and help think through the entire process. She was very warm, knowledgeable, and professional in all our dealings with her. She just couldn't have been more attentive and helpful. Meeting our needs at every turn, our guests commented on how special the wedding was. I can't speak highly enough of our experience.

Let me start with the views....UNBELIEVABLE!! My husband and I were thrilled! The team at Persimmon was so amazing for us. Even with weather issues, they even set a ceremony outside and inside just in case......WITHOUT US ASKING! We had a break in weather and they were ready to take care of it all and we had a gorgeous outside wedding. We had an amazing day. The staff made us feel so special and their attention to everything made us feel like we were the only priority in their world. The food was amazing and our family and friends had such a great time. This couldn't have been possible without all the staff at Persimmon. Guess where we're having our baby shower party!!! :)

Persimmon made my wedding perfect. The catering director was easy to work with and took care of all my needs and made me feel so comfortable. The food was delicious and the setting absolutely beautiful. One of the prettiest golf courses in the area. Everything was taken care of for us and was just how we had planned and wanted it. I would highly recommend Persimmon to anyone getting married. The cost is definately worth the value and service you receive.

They made a custom menu for us because we are very into the fall season and wanted to honor that! They went above and beyond with this menu, people are still raving about it! Amanda made sure all went smoothly, down to making sure we hid out in the bridal suite for a bit after the ceremony, before we were announced at the reception - something we hadn't even considered.

They were more than flexible with us for our wants and needs.
Only marked lower than 5+ on responsiveness because I was an A.D.D bride with groom-zilla at my side, and we wanted to know months ahead of time what we could do.

Great venue and great staff, all around. Down to the guys who waited on my finnicky bridemaids who demanded food in bridal suite. You guys were great!

We had a beautiful wedding at Persimmon Country Club. All the guests remarked on the amazing views and idyllic scenery of the golf course. All things considered, we had good food, and a nice reception hall for the cost. The only thing I would have preferred would have been more set-up time on the day of the wedding. They only allow you to arrive 2 hrs before the ceremony to set up, and we had a lot of decor, table arrangements, and ceremony decorations to place. As a result, my mom was helping the two decorators to get the job done (even the florist stayed late to help), and my mom missed half of the wedding pictures she was supposed to be in.

We were incredibly happy with how our day went. Everything needed was taken care of by Persimmon, allowing us to not have to worry about anything getting done. Everything was set up to our specifications and the food/beverage service was wonderful. The only issue was when the main bartender went on a break, the crew captain covering didn't know how to make some drinks. Additionally, we were surprised to see a tip jar placed at the bar when part of our cost included a 20% gratuity built in.
The ceremony space was beautiful and set up how we requested. However, club members were allowed to be seated on the balcony over our ceremony and some of our guests near the back had a hard time hearing when these patrons got a little loud.
I do think as long as these were addressed prior to your event there would be zero problems with the entire experience. The event coordinator, Julie, was great throughout the entire process. She is new to Persimmon and VERY eager to address any issues throughout the planning process to ensure our day was perfect, I don't doubt she would be willing to make adjustments for all her couples.

Venue was beautiful and has beautiful views. I was not impressed with how the staff and wedding coordinator handled my wedding. They dropped the ball on several things that ended up affecting my wedding. The staff did not want to move tables or set up my decorations when I was told by the wedding coordinator they would. She said they charge extra to put my decorations out. My mom and mother in law got stuck doing it and were not able to help me get ready like they had planned. During my ceremony club members were outside on the patio eating and talking loudly and my guests had a hard time hearing. The food was good but way overpriced for what you get and the ceremony fee of $1000 is ridiculous when you pay $9000 for your reception. Also, thought that the bar having a tip jar out was very unclassy, especially for a wedding. I paid a gratuity and big money for a wedding package and then to have my guests feel obligated to tip was very disheartening especially on top of everything else that went wrong. Overall I was not very impressed with Persimmon. This was my wedding day and it was not what I had envisioned at all. Persimmon definitely let me down on what was supposed to be the happiest day of my life.

Persimmon Country Club responded with the following comments:

I am absolutely not familiar with this situation. I am available and very "hands on" during each wedding, and if any issues occur I am aware and handle them promptly. This review is truly dis-heartning and "news to me" Thank you cards have poured in this entire summer from brides and their families, so this review seems completely out of character to the way weddings and communication has been conducted.

We had our daughter's reception at Persimmon in 2011. I have hesitated to write a review about our experience because frankly I don't like to write bad reviews. There were problems from the moment we booked the venue. They changed event managers 3 times before the wedding. No one seemed to know what they were doing, they were not responsive, and we just never could get straight answers about things. On the day of the wedding, so many things went wrong. For example, the salad course was served on time, but then we waited 1 hour between the time the salad course and the main course was served. It was so embarrassing. During the hour wait, I could not even find a staff person in charge. They were clearly understaffed. Also, most of the wait staff were dressed in street clothes. It was just odd. The champagne wasn't served on time, and only a hand full of people received any. The week after the wedding my husband called the GM and listed off all the things that went wrong, and it was clear that he didn't care. There were some aspects that were positive. I would say that the location and the grounds of this venue are lovely.

We had our daughter's reception at Persimmon in 2011. I have hesitated to write a review about our experience because frankly I don't like to write bad reviews. There were problems from the moment we booked the venue. They changed event managers 3 times before the wedding. No one seemed to know what they were doing, they were not responsive, and we just never could get straight answers about things. On the day of the wedding, so many things went wrong.

I was so excited to have my wedding at Persimmon Country Club because it is so beautiful, but was thoroughly disappointed in the overall experience. The food was mediocre at best and way overpriced, the bartender had a tip jar out, which is tacky to say the least, especially when I am paying a gratuity already, the room was not set up the way I wanted and the list goes on. The event director, Amanda, was very friendly and responsive prior to my wedding, but did not take care of the problems the day of my wedding. It is very disappointing when you plan and save for years for your perfect day to have it ruined by an unprepared, uncaring and overpriced venue. If you are looking to book an event or wedding look elsewhere. Persimmon Country Club is beautiful but not worth your $9K. They need to take classes in customer service and learn that a wedding is a huge event for the bride and groom. They need to make sure that eveything is taken seriously and make sure that every need is met above and beyond your expectations. I've attended many weddings and also been in many weddings and this is by far the worst venue I have ever been a part of. My husband and I are so very sad that our wedding did not turn out the way we dreamed that it would. We are planning a one year anniversary party and will have to make that like a second wedding since our first one was ruined.

Persimmon Country Club responded with the following comments:

While we appreciate all clients’ feedback we are not familiar with this situation. We are available and very “hands on” during each and every wedding. Should any issues occur, which are brought to our attention we handle them promptly. This review is truly disheartening as we have received multiple thank you cards from this past summer’s weddings. This review seems completely out of character to the way communication has been conducted.

Let me start off by saying DON'T BOOK YOUR WEDDING AT PERSIMMON!! It is the worst place. The staff was rude & so unaccomodating. The wedding coordinating was pleasant but hard to get a hold of & didn't return phone calls for several days, which is unacceptable. The staff on the day of the wedding were rude & didn't want to help with any requests I made. They told me that I needed to put all the decorations out myself but only allow two hours for set up. I was getting ready & taking pictures two hours prior to my wedding. The staff were talking loudly while my mother & friends were setting up my decorations & didn't seem to care that they could hear everything they were talking about & let me tell you it was not appropriate for work. During the ceremony members of the country club were outside on the patio eating, talking & laughing very loudly. That is very rude & the club should have members stay inside for the 30 minutes that the ceremony is taking place. I paid big money and to have people distracting the ceremony is ridiculous. The food was ok, but definitely not worth what I paid for it. My food was cold when I sat down to eat because they served me when I was thanking everyone for coming to my wedding. The staff could see that I was busy & should have waited to serve me until I was seated. I couldn't even eat my food & when I told the server they said "oh sorry" but never offered to bring me a fresh plate. Same for my husband, his food was also cold & not good. I was so sad & heartbroken about my wedding that my mom & husband had to calm me down & tell me that it is just one day out of many more. We saved for an entire year for our wedding & thought Persimmon would be perfect, since it is so beautiful, but were truly let down by the service we received. Persimmon needs to invest in better employees and better customer service. When you pay as much money as we did you should get the service, food & wedding of your dreams.
