Our reception was held at the Bertram Inn's main room, the McKinley Ballroom, and was done fantastically. An event was held prior to our reception, ending at 3pm, and the team at the Bertram was able to change the room completely over by 5pm when our guests arrived for cocktail hour. Hors d'ouvres and cocktails were served, as well as a cheese table. Guests were promptly seated at 6pm, where our tables were set up perfectly with our centerpieces, guest favors, and table numbers as requested. Dinner service was a formal buffet of beef tenderloin, vegetable ravioli, and roasted sea bass, sides of almond green beans and parmesan crusted red potatoes. Guests made sure to tell us how flavorful and fantastic the food was all night. Waitstaff was attentive, and very friendly, garnering even more praise. Overall, The Bertram met all of our requirements and exceeded our expectations with little difficulty, going so far as to offer to contact our vendors for us to finalize details. We will fully recommend them for a fantastic and memorable wedding day!

This could never have been accomplished if I didn't have Julianne as our wedding planner! She always responded to my several emails and put my mind to ease with all the details.She is very professional and gets the job done. After our last meeting before the wedding I had many requests and I was extremely pleased to see how everything was PERFECT!!!!! on the day of the wedding! I highly recommend Julianne and the food was superb!!! Lighting and ceiling drapes by Chris at the Bertram made the room look magical!! Thank you Julianne!!

We were recently married at the Bertram Inn and were assisted by Julianne Pittman with our planning. The quality of the food, cake, facility, linens, and service during the reception was outstanding. Many guests commented on the quality of the food and the bar. We felt that the money we spent was well worth what we received. We had high expectations of the facility and they matched and exceeded them. Every tiny detail was either taken care of by them or made aware of to us so that we could handle it. Our guests all had very positive experiences staying at the hotel, eating at the restaurant (brunch day after wedding) and with the other facilities.

Julianne Pittman assisted us throughout the enormous process of planning a reception for roughly 200 people. She went out of her way to give us honest, timely, and helpful feedback. She really helped make the process simple with the way she handled our meetings and conversations. Multiple times we changed out mind, some within the last few weeks, and she took care of it without issue. For a facility to provide someone like her to help a couple is a major, major plus. She really did a fantastic job, kept us sane, and made things easy. She gets our highest recommendation without hesitation.

The Bertram made our wedding absolutely perfect!! First of all, the wedding planner (Julianne) was extremely professional and assisted with every step of the process. She assisted with every big and small request from myself as well as my parents. She also made sure we had appetizers at the head table, and made sure we had everything we needed throughout the night. Secondly, the food was phenomenal!!! We are still receiving compliments from our guests regarding the food. Lastly, they were responsive towards the elderly guests (with coffee/ cake) and towards our vegetarian guests (with preparing special meals for them). The wedding was amazing thanks to the Bertram Inn and Julianne!!

Arianna Bezon was very helpful, accommodating & professional during the planning stages and especially on the day of our event. Arianna played an important part in the success of our wedding and it was a pleasure and hassle free coordinating all the details with her - from start to finish. If there was an issue Arianna was quick to provide a solution. The food, staff and ambiance at the Bertram were all a great match that greatly enhanced our special day.
So, if you are looking for a venue and staff to perfectly compliment your wedding plans and help make your day extra special - we highly recommend you speak with Arianna, you won’t be disappointed.

Monica was our coordinator and SHE IS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She made everything and more happen. I have no idea how she did it all and stayed so clam and sane, not to mention she kept everyone else on track and going where they needed to be. From making the hospitality room a huge success to creating a dream like wedding, she did it all. After having our wedding there I know why they are ranked #1 in the area! They know how to do it and how to do it right. All our guests are still talking about it, the food (OUTSTANDING), the location, to the bar and bartenders. Everyone at The Bertram is amazingly accommodating and has the best customer service I have encountered in a long time. They made it go so smooth and all while in such a unique location. The whole hotel is built in a way that makes weddings fun for the whole weekend for the guests.

Monica was our coordinator and SHE IS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She made everything and more happen. I have no idea how she did it all and stayed so clam and sane, not to mention she kept everyone else on track and going where they needed to be. From making the hospitality room a huge success to creating a dream like wedding, she did it all. After having our wedding there I know why they are ranked #1 in the area! They know how to do it and how to do it right. All our guests are still talking about it, the food (OUTSTANDING), the location, to the bar and bartenders. Everyone at The Bertram is amazingly accommodating and has the best customer service I have encountered in a long time. They made it go so smooth and all while in such a unique location. The whole hotel is built in a way that makes weddings fun for the whole weekend for the guests.

The food was so much better on my wedding day than it was at the tastings. Everyone raved about it. The ballrooms are beautiful and working with Monica makes everything so easy. I didn't have to worry about a thing because I knew all the little details would be taken care of just the way I asked.

Going into my wedding - I was wound up tighter than a clock. I set my expectations low (just so I wouldn't be disappointed) and was ready for the stress to be over. Looking back, I wish I could relive that day every day. It was perfect! The Bertram is not only a beautiful venue, but the staff and their service is top notch. We worked with Monica. She was super fun to work with and she handled every detail to a "T." Seriously, I did not have to lift a finger - and every detail looked more beautiful than I could've imagined. Our rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception was all held at the Bertram. Would not have changed a thing! The food was the best I've ever had at a reception and the service was fantastic. They heated up leftovers and brought plates up to my new husband and I at 2am, after we were done partying with our guests at Paws. Seriously! It is worth every penny!

The Bertram Inn was everything we could have asked for and more. Monica DeMassimo is just amazing to work with-she couldn't have been anymore helpful or thoughtful. The entire staff is so friendly and professional and the food was delicious. At first glance the cost might seem a little high but with all the services that are included (like the cake), it was very reasonable. I would highly recommend the Bertram and Monica.

The Bertram Inn was a great venue to hold my reception. Not only is the space beautiful, the food is very good and the service is outstanding. Drew at the Bertram Inn is amazing! I had a lot of moving parts to my wedding reception, and was fairly demanding (as I am an events planner myself) and Drew and the rest of the Bertram Inn staff were spectacular. I highly recommend this venue for an event! Many of my wedding guests told me and my parents that our wedding was one of the best if not the best weddings they have been to and that ours was the one to compare all weddings against. I attribute a lot of this success to the outstanding service that The Bertram Inn provided.

The Bertram inn is a beautiful venue for a wedding and/or reception. I had my ceremony as well there and it was beautiful. The transition from ceremony to the cocktail hour was flawless and smooth. I loved having ceremony, reception and hotel all in one place. They also did a great job with including all their services into one package. It really cut down on the vendors I had to hire and it made it very cost effective. The cake was amazing!!!! The bartenders and waitstaff did an amazing job. Food came out super quick and the drinks were not skimpy! Everything I expected and then some. Our photographer loved the grounds and architecture for pictures. It is a great venue! The only reason I did not give it a 5 out of 5 was some of the communication was off. We had an issue with the contract terms 4 days before the wedding and even though everything was worked out in the end, it was a slight blow receiving this information so close to the big day. Better communication over the contract terms would have been appreciated earlier, but I know a lot is involved in the planning.. That being said, I would not be deterred from using the Bertram again for other events. I'll just pay more attention to the contract terms!!!

Additionally, Monica (Bertram coordinator) was beyond helpful. She made sure we had everything ready to go and she made sure the place was beautiful for us. She even made sure things were perfect for us on our wedding day. Right down to making sure my train was cooperating down the aisle.

We chose to go with the Bertram Inn because of the unique set up of the Hayes ball room and the room accomodations. We are very happy we made that choice.

Our coordinator was Monica and she was very cooperative and accomodating. She did an excellent job going over the details of our wedding and making sure there were no loose ends.

We had some set backs on our wedding day that caused some unwanted stress on us. I got a call from my mother as I was entering the reception hall. She said I was going to forget everything that happened earlier once I see the ball room. I will be blown away! and I truly was. Betram did an AMAZING job setting everything up for us. Monica did not miss a singe detail and everything we ordered and asked for she did. She even went above and beyond by putting lights around our cake, that we didnt ask for. She knew I ws a big fan of candles and lighting. The food was AMAZING! Bar tending staff was incredibe and the liquor was delicious. My husband and I are still receiing comments from our guests on how beautiful the place and room was. Also, how good the food was and we received many ciompliments on the bartenders. I am so thankful the Bertram came through for us and they made ALL the pain go away from earlier. It meant everything to us.

Some of the vegetable appetizers came out brown and some of the pieces were a little to big for people to eat. When i brought it to the servers attention they took care of it right away. It was just embarrassing because it was one of my guest that brought it to my attention. Also i had made, trayed, & wrapped all my cookies. We stored them at the Bertram on Friday. When my brother brought the cake to the hall Saturday morning he found them all unwrapped. It was hours before our party was to begin and we were worried about them drying out, sitting out in an open area etc. When he brought it to someone's attention they really copped an attitude with him. Again this was one of my guests who was helping me out. He had to rewrap everything! It wasn't a small amount either. He was very upset about the whole thing.
I have recommended the Bertram to a number of people so I was a little upset about that. I think overall everything else went very well.

We had the best time at our wedding, there were just a few things we did not care for regarding the staff. We had specifically ordered a specialized meal for one of our guests who is a vegan vegetarian and her pasta meal was completely forgotten about and not served until almost everyone was done eating. My husband and I were walking around to all the tables thanking them for coming and found out she hadn't even eaten yet. I had to personally go out and find a waiter to inform them of this unfortunate mishap, and sure enough they went back into the kitchen and got our guests food. Our band did not require any meal at all since they were playing only from 8p-12a. The staff offered meals of food to the band (the band was sitting at a table in the "cocktail" room of the Garfield) when all of our guests hadn't been served yet. I had people telling me they didn't get what the ordered (even though it was good) and I was very disappointed by this, and assumed it was because the staff was offering away food to people who weren't even guests and the staff did not even ask me permission to serve them. Lastly, at the end of the night all my centerpiece flowers disappeared. I paid a lot of money for those arrangements and had every intention of giving them to my family and bridal party as an additional parting gift, but to my surprise after I said my goodbye's, they were all gone. All I was left with was my bouquet, and the flowers from the head table. Overall, the rest of the event went well and we were all in all happy. I just wanted to put it out there in case there are still issues with that regarding the staff and/or just as a heads up so you know! Thanks!

The Bertram was a bit of a surprise actually. They had all of the brides/grooms/families for a tasting and while I thought they would have show cased there very best, I was much more impressed with the food on actual day of our wedding. We managed to cut down our guest so we were able to select a more expensive plan. Everyone raved about how great the food was, my favorites included the roasted red pepper bruschetta, bacon wrapped scallops, shallot potatoes and london broiil. I wasn't impressed with their cake so we went with our own baker and to make up for the cost of the cake they took $3-4 off our per person cost. They did our ceremony outside of the Hayes Annex which was lovely with their gold chivari chairs, cocktail hour inside (which was a must in muggy july) and reception in the ball room. You havecomplete access to the entire building all day so vendors have a lot of time to set up. Only down side would be if there is a wedding there the night before which limits your ability to set up a day before if you're having an early wedding. The ballroom itself is not very impressive but once you add the tables, chivari chairs and other decorations it looks a lot nicer. I definitely reccomend them.

Brenda and the rest of the staff at the Bertram were perfect from beginning to end. I was amazed at her attention to detail…at our meeting the Wednesday before I arrived with boxes and boxes of random decorations with instructions, and what she ended up doing with all of those supplies just blew me away. Plus, the food was amazing, the cake was included in the package and it was beautiful and delicious, they somehow supplied my bubbly-guzzling friends with champagne all night long even though they don’t include it in their regular bar package, supplied their shuttle to get us around (a group of 20 to the rehearsal dinner, guys to the church, etc.)…the list goes on and on. And having the hotel on site was key – tons of people who lived just across town ended up staying so they didn’t have to drive…and they could because the group rate was so affordable. Even though this venue seems like it’s pricey per person, all these extras made it totally worth it. They do a lot of weddings here, and know how to do them WELL. Highly recommend it!!

Brenda and the rest of the staff at the Bertram were perfect from beginning to end. I was amazed at her attention to detail…at our meeting the Wednesday before I arrived with boxes and boxes of random decorations with instructions, and what she ended up doing with all of those supplies just blew me away.

The Bertram was fantastic. Brenda was the wedding planner, and did a fantastic job. They set up a wonderful food tasting, had samples of linens, chairs, table setting options, even napkin fold options. So for the detailed bride they were wonderful. The food was outstanding, we got several compliments. The service was wonderful, I would recommend The Bertram to anyone. I was an out of town bride, and they helped me more then I ever could have asked for.

venue is beautiful - and the food is delicious. we were highly disappointed that some of our decorations that were left overnight (a basket with guest favors) "disappeared" along with a few of our gifts. it took multiple phone calls to get a response, and some pushy behavior (which should've been unnecessary) to find our missing gifts. they were stored away in someone's cube in the back office! our basket with favors never appeared.

The Bertram was a great place for our reception, but you can definitely tell that they need to hire another wedding coordinator. There were 3 weddings at the Bertram the same night as mine, and it was hard to find someone to help us when there was a problem. The food was excellent, the room looked fantastic, and our cake ended up looking and tasting great, but there were some problems with the staff not being very responsive at times. I would still recommend the Bertram for a wedding reception, but definitely think they need to add another coordinator if they don't want their reviews to start getting negative.

Pros:
*good food
Cons:
*My coordinator was completely careless and seemed to have no interest in my wedding
*The general manager was not responsive to my needs or the needs of my guests
*no telephone service while at the Bertram so you will miss phone calls during this important time
*dirty chivari chairs, if you want some please rent your own so you aren't shocked on the day of the wedding
