Honestly, we loved our wedding here. It was the style we were looking for, the price point we wanted (it's far less expensive on a weekday!) and offered the flexibility we hope for in terms of using outside vendors. We were really able to make this day everything we had wanted, and our wedding was absolutely flawless! The only reason for the lower rating has to do with the management. I would advise anyone booking here to keep records of your payments (we were told a week out that we hadn't paid yet), and everything in your contract. If you do have any back-and-forth communication, try to do it through email so that there's a record of it. We were a bit nervous about some things the week leading up, but we were lucky enough to have an incredible day-of coordinator and so many absolutely wonderful outside vendors that, if anything did go wrong the day of the event, we didn't even know about it! Our wedding was perfect and we couldn't be happier with where we had it--but would just advise others to keep a good track of their records in order to ensure things go smoothly. If you're looking for a venue with a management team that will walk you through things step-by-step, this isn't the one, but if you're wanting to find your own vendors and do all the planning/decorating, this is such a great and affordable option.

This is a great venue! The guests couldn't stop talking about how beautiful it was, and it was so affordable. But don't expect the owners to be easy to work with. On several occasions, Patrick was rude and demeaning. However, I was able to deal with it and the wedding turned out amazing! No regrets on choosing this venue :)

The overall feel/look of this venue is out of this world, and makes for beautiful photos and a great atmosphere!! The only gripe I have with this venue would be the people running the venue. Patrick (son), Don (father), & the mother (name unknown) are all pretty miserable looking/acting people, who don't have a care in the world if you get married at their venue. Fortunately I knew this going into the whole thing from previous people who got married at Shenandoah, so I knew what to expect, and what not to expect.

Someone told me to make sure I hold on to all receipts because they don't keep track, which I'm glad I did because I was told (a day before the wedding) that I owed them more money...which actually in the end when it was all said and done, they owed ME money...

Another thing someone told me was that the "clean-up" they mention on their price sheet, actually never happens, that the wedding party & parents end up doing all of it, which again I'm glad I knew ahead of time because this also happened to us. The father (Don) told my husband that he needed to roll the trash out to the dumpster before he left...after we spend 30 min cleaning up the venue.

I also spent the $285 for their food service (2 people for 4 hours) PLUS an extra $60 for an extra person for 4 hours to HAND SERVE the appetizers, which ended up being a HUGE disappointment. The people were all miserable, DIDN'T hand serve the appetizers, never brought out any of the appetizers to the wedding party, and then also my dad saw them take away the appetizers 20 min before the reception started, and either threw them away or ate the rest, there was nothing left over.... Just very frustrating to spend extra money and not get the services you should have. My husband and I were hand served dinner, and they barely gave us any food at all; one tiny piece of bread, ONE ravioli, one tiny piece of chicken and very little salad...

Other than these small things, my wedding was beautiful!!!

Our wedding was AMAZING at Shenandoah Mill, my husband made a perfect choice! The venue alone speaks for itself, the whole rustic, backyard, vintage feel is absolutely gorgeous! I was in awe when I first saw this place and couldn't stop thinking about it. The budget we had worked perfectly and we were able to bring in our own vendors to help with the cost as well. We were very pleased with working with everyone at Shenandoah Mill, Patrick was our main contact person and although his personality was more direct and fast paced...I didn't mind that at all. I thought he was awesome, he responded to questions we had efficiently and when our catering vendor (A Savory Affair) "Chef Tim" lacked his professionalism and backed out without notice a month before our wedding...Patrick saved the day and gave us another catering vendor that did an impeccable job! So I really don't have any complaints about him or the rest of the staff/owners, they were wonderful to work with. As far as setting up and prepping the venue for our wedding day, it was PERFECT! We were one HAPPY couple & that loved every detail and would not have changed anything. Thank you Shenandoah Mill for everything! :)

Space is limited, so here is the abridged version:
Had I known how miserable Patrick would make the wedding experience, all the beauty in the venue, would have meant nothing. In one encounter he ranted about how “you people” while pointing to the chair in my direction, apparently meaning the bride, groom, his customers, never listen to anything he says and freak out come the day of. Seconds before, in the middle of our meeting, he had tossed the contract across his office to another of his customers telling her “It’s in the contract, read it”. The unprofessionalism continued, I then brought up that our wedding would have 30+ children. I explained that I was going to have some child care there, but was still a bit concerned about the road by the grass area. I asked if there should be concern. His response, “they’re not my kids, why would I care”. I contemplated on the way home from this miserable meeting, how I could afford changing venues. Had I known how miserable he was, I wish I had never fallen in love and visualized this venue as my wedding. I wasn’t going to allow him, this single angry little man, to ruin my special day.
The day of… I will give Patrick credit for accommodating a last min fix when I saw tables set up incorrectly. However he was his same condescending offensive self to my friends that helped w/ setup. In our previous meeting he requested we have hot boxes for the food to stay warm. I accommodated, all in all, about 5hrs of boiling water, and transport of these boxes. When my friend arrived with them, he wanted nothing to do with them and didn’t use them. The food was cold due to his lazy choice not to use what he himself requested that we provide.
I hope those that read this, read it before falling in love with the venue. It is not worth it. This is not a review from an angry bride unhappy with her wedding. Our wedding was fantastic, but the venue did not attribute to its greatness.
