Our planning process was really smooth. Angela was AMAZING. She was so reassuring and communicative throughout the entire process. It was all right within our budget. Our tasting went really well, and we felt valued since they are done privately. Even the changes we had to make within the last couple of weeks were received well and we were confident that everything was going to go well.

However, when we arrived the day before to set up and for the rehearsal, things started to fall apart. As we were driving up to Chesterton (a 4 hour commute), Angela called to inform me that our rehearsal had to be moved from 6pm to 5pm because their dinner service had priority. Our wedding party also had to make that commute right after they left work, so needless to say they were all extremely stressed and pressed for time. Of course they were all running late due to the time change. Even at 5pm, Angela continuously asked us when we were going to start and finish because dinner guests were beginning to arrive. At most, there were five families that actually dined-in. When our wedding party actually arrived for us to rehearse, we had to do everything in front of the dinner guests and had to stand right next to their tables. We definitely did not expect for our wedding rehearsal to turn into a dinner show. For how much we paid, not being a priority over dinner service was beyond ridiculous. They also informed us at 7pm that we had to be out of the building by 9pm. This was OVERWHELMING since our decor didn't actually enter the space until 6pm.

Gale made the wedding day stressful. Right as the ladies were leaving the lounge, she told us we had to clean it all up. So in my wedding gown and already with jitters, I had to drop everything. Angela came in and told us we could leave it as it was. Gale also made my photographer's job more difficult which was frustrating. Overall, the venue was beautiful but the service was less than ideal.

Thank you to Amy Cushway and Sand Creek for a perfect wedding and reception. The venue was beautiful and the food and service was excellent. The flexibility of being able to have the ceremony inside or outside was a big plus. We had a beautiful fall day so the ceremony was outside under the pergola. Very nice!
A great time was had by all and we had many compliments.
Amy was awesome to work with and we will definitely recommend Sand Creek to any future couples looking for a wedding venue.

Sand Creek Country Club was the PERFECT location for our wedding reception! It is so beautiful there and the set-up was so beautiful. Amy from Sand Creek Country Club was superhelpful, easy to get along with and took care of everything we needed her too. She made sure everything was were it was supposed to be. We didn't have to worry about anything, and we got so many compliments from our guests for the venue! The food was absolutely delicious, big portions and Amy even packed two pieces of cake to go for us! And she even took us out on the golf course with a golf cart to take pictures with our photographer. We are SO glad we picked Sand Creek Country Club for our reception venue and we will for sure recommend it to all our family members and friends in the future! My mother-in-law and her sisters also hosted a beautiful bridal shower for me at Sand Creek Country Club!

Our wedding at Sand Creek was A-MAZING and I enthusiastically recommend it. I was pretty particular about the overall look I wanted at the wedding and the menu - my husband and I are pretty big foodies. Chef Nathan worked with us to craft a custom menu that showcased local midwestern ingredients for our guests, who were largely from out of town. They loved it! I can't say enough about how wonderful Amy Cushway was to work with. She took care of every detail, she was wonderful to work with from start to finish - including help us plan a Korean ceremony in addition to the reception. She put me completely at ease and I wasn't worried a bit about the day going off without a hitch since I trusted Amy completely. I was right to trust her - everything was executed perfectly and beautifully - even better than I imagined. I wholeheartedly recommend Sand Creek.

Amy Cushway the event planner at Sandcreek is amazing! She was so easy to work with and was very accomidating. It was so refreshing when we would go to an appointment and feel stressed because she would just put us to ease....and the day of the wedding she was true to what she said....that she would take care of it and not to worry! We had a lot of little details that we wanted to be "just right" and she made sure that they were. On another note, the place is beautiful! We had our ceremony in the clock garden and it made it so unique and intimate.

This was our reception venue. It is a gorgeous venue. When you walk in, there is a solid wall of windows that overlooks the golf course and the courtyard. On the outside, that same wall is covered with all kinds of flowers and ivy. The "Clock Garden" court yard area is absolutely beautiful. Our photographer was able to get some fantastic pictures there.

They did a wonderful job catering our wedding. I would recommend that you clarify your terms with them though. We had 56 bottles of wine shipped from Austin, TX for our wedding. I wanted to use the wine instead of champagne, and then have it available to our guests to drink afterward. But, apparently, we miscommunicated. After the toasts were done and dinner was over, the staff would not serve our wine anymore. Unfortunately, none of our guests alerted either my husband or I, so we didn't know.

But, other than that little mix up, it was fantastic. Everyone had a great time!
