Be warned! Think long & hard before you book this caterer or venue. If you've ever had nightmares of things going wrong at your wedding.. I can't imagine it being worse that our actual wedding. Honestly, go find another company if you are early on in your wedding venue/caterer search. If you are already set on using this venue or have already paid a deposit, you should still be able to get out of it with less monetary damage, earlier on. At the very least ask very detailed questions about contingency plans for every possible thing that can go wrong & get it in writing, because this venue is NOT PREPARED! Don't wait until the day of your wedding to find out there is nothing you can do, and then still have to pay every single penny, adding insult to injury.
We are writing this to WARN other couples who are going to spend so much money on one day where you have all your family & friends traveling from all over the world to share in this momentous occasion. To have a once in a lifetime experience completely RIPPED from you is truly heartbreaking.

Our wedding was a complete disaster & we were horribly misled by this company. We hoped for the best & prepared for the worst, but there is no way we could have prepared for how unbelievably UNPROFESSIONAL the STAFF & UNPREPARED the VENUE was.

What went wrong: No power or backup generator, no lights, running water, flushing toilets or heat. Leaking tent, wet floors, untrained/confused staff, staff yelling & berating guests. (YELP for full review)

PLEASE think long & hard before you sign with this place. Personally, we think, save yourself the headache & heartache and find some other company, but if you are set on them, make sure you have every possible contingency covered, get it in writing, maybe even consult a lawyer ahead of time before you sign anything.

Wishing you all the best on your dream wedding!

We had a unique situation with Sanders as we signed with Robert and then the venue was purchased by Blue Ribbon Cooking. With that being said, everything went very well! There were some initial hiccups in the transition from Robert to Blue Ribbon. But with the help of Lisa Brenneman everything went smoothly from then on! Lisa is an amazing venue manager. She is prompt, helpful, and kind which is more than helpful during wedding planning.

The venue itself was beautiful and great for our 150 person wedding. We had a blue sunny day in October which nicely complimented the lush green grass, pond, and fountain. We got some amazing pictures and were overall very happy!

The staff at Sanders Estate was very helpful, knowledgeable, and always there for me with any questions or comments I had. They were great day of the wedding because they have everything all set up and ready to go just as you discussed with them, and they even are around day of to make sure your day goes smoothly. They helped recommend vendors as well which was helpful too. All of our guests loved the place and commented on how beautiful it was and how nicely the whole day flowed from ceremony to cocktails to reception. There are also tons of beautiful spots to take pictures which made our photographer very happy too :) We had a great time overall.

Just an absolute dream location. You have the acreage, vine filled trellis, fountain, pond, boat and even a swan! Completely reliable staff, gorgeous setting (several guests said this was their favorite wedding venue they had been too), and just overall a dream come true. Highly recommend this venue!

The Sanders estate was an amazing venue for a wedding. The staff worked very hard to make our day as stress free as possible and did an amazing job. Our guests can't stop taking about how beautiful the venue was. There is a ton of space for guests to enjoy the scenery all along the property with a home away from home feeling. My wife and I couldn't have chosen a better venue!

We had our wedding here in July and absolutely LOVED it. It is such a magical little hideaway, with beautiful landscaping for the perfect wedding. They just changed owners, so I'm sure many things will change. Robert, the previous owner, was nice but lacking a lot of responsiveness. The staff is great and willing to meet your needs without charging you for every little thing (again, that may change with new owners). We had an evening wedding that was perfect for lighting with pictures. We only had a small problem with staff taking way too long moving the chairs from the ceremony site to the reception. There were plenty of posts we read concerning the owner "kicking" the bridal party out of the house once the reception started because he lived there and didn't want their things in the house. We didn't have a problem with that, and i'm sure that has changed since nobody lives in the house anymore. During the planning process, they let us come by multiple times to measure things and bring family and friends to see it. Great place to get married! I would recommend it to anyone!!

The venue is amazing but the staff does a poor job. They are not responsible at all and if you have any issues forget about any help from the owner!
