We LOVED this venue. We had the option of choosing the Dr. Phillip's house (The yellow mansion with the Gazebo in the back) or the I.W. Phillips house (blue wrap around patio) house. I'm sure a lot of people choose the Dr. Phillips house as it is breathtaking, however, the IW house is just as equally PERFECT! In fact, from a couple of acquaintances, it has been referred to as the 'quiet, cooler' outdoor wedding area compared to the Dr. Phillips house (the Dr. Phillips house is not as shaded, and a bit loud with the 408 road. My personal preference of course is to recommend the IW house with the choice between the two. The inside and outside of this house was completely breathtaking in the evening all lit up. My guests are STILL raving about what a beautiful venue the IW house was and how they had no idea it was tucked away there off of Orange Avenue. We were married on the hottest day so far this year (it was 96 degrees as a high) with a 6p start time. While still hot, at the IW house the courtyard was completely shaded and there was no 408 noise with that location. It was perfect!!!

Working with Angie was a pleasure, she was so nice and pleasant. She was easy to reach and got back to me promptly, very helpful and informative. We had our reception at the Dr. Phillips House and it was absolutely beautiful! Package was affordable, reception, catering and drinks were all included. We loved staying in the bridal suite the night of the wedding (included in package), such a nice treat! We highly recommend you check out The Courtyard at Lake Lucerne.

The Courtyard at Lake Lucerne was the first venue we visited- and we absolutely fell in love with the charm and character of the place! We chose the Dr. Phillips House (the yellow one). The courtyard in the back was perfect for our ceremony and the inside dining rooms provided an intimate feel for our guests as they dined and conversed during the dinner hour. After dinner, the courtyard area was easy to transform into the reception space. Our guests loved the indoor/outdoor atmosphere and we received so many compliments on our choice of venue.

Angie is the point of contact for the wedding side of the venue and is absolutely a dream to work with! She was incredibly responsive to all of our questions and was easy to reach by phone (during office hours) or email after hours. The packages are very affordable, and Angie was great about helping us work through the contract and add additional options until we had our dream wedding. We are so pleased we went with this venue!

The team at The Courtyard at Lake Lucerne made our wedding day simple and stress-free. Our guests really enjoyed the experience of staying for a few nights at the property. We were all able to socialize at breakfast and the venue really felt like home because so many of our guests were staying there for the wedding night. The venue itself is stunning, but the helpful and friendly staff and cooperating vendors are the best. Angie Vargas, the wedding coordinator was so patient with me and helped us through every step. I would recommend this venue to anyone looking to have an intimate, meaningful ceremony and reception.

We hosted my daughter's wedding at The Courtyard at Lake Lucerne. It was by far the best wedding location of the venues we considered. The wedding was beautiful and the pictures are spectacular. The staff at The Courtyard know how to do a wedding and make it a special day of memories. Angie was our Salesperson. She was awesome. We hired Sherri as our Day-Of Coordinator. She was amazing. Our guests LOVED staying at the B&B during the event. They felt treated to luxury and pampering. My highest kudos to The Courtyard at Lake Lucerne.

Absolutely AMAZING venue! They exceeded our expectations. They offer packages so it was very affordable. Angie was our point of contact and she always answered our questions in a prompt and timely manner. And believe me, I asked her a TON of questions! My husband and I were able to pay for our entire wedding on our own, which was impressive to us considering we're both young professionals (and I'm still in school). I highly recommend this venue if you're looking to have a beautiful, affordable, and intimate wedding.

Angie was very flexible with us and allowed us to bring some beverages that weren't offered by them. Thank you Angie!

The Courtyard at Lake Lucerne is truly one of the most amazing wedding venues. I searched and searched, and so many places are over priced, the wedding coordinator is not accommodating, ect. It was a blessing when i finally found this place! The courtyard is a historical bed and breakfast, and it is absolutely beautiful. They have two different historical houses you can choose from. They both have a garden courtyard where you can have your ceremony, and then the reception takes place both in and outdoors. If the weather is bad, they know how to accommodate the whole wedding indoors/under a roof. I highly recommend anyone get married here. It is the best place for a beautiful, fun, and memorable event!

Fabulous day and perfect wedding. Everything went exactly as planned and the venue was gourgeous. I was able to get into my bridal suite by 12:30 and hotel staff went over and beyond to accommodate our wedding party. Many guests came from throughout the USA and abroad and could not stop raving about how beautiful everything looked. We used Meiners catering and they were superb. We had 125 guests at the IW Phillips home and it was not crowded at all. Judy from Meiners knew exactly how to set it up for comfort. Our coordinator they assigned us for the day, Madison, was brand new, and if the DJ had not told us we would have never known. She was awesome and helpful. Loved the place and my wedding was everything I dreamed of and more.

The Courtyard was an amazing Venue to work with! They do a lot of weddings there, and it would be easy for them to churn out cookie cutter events, but they definitely had the flexibility and understanding to make sure that we had the event we wanted. Angie and all the other staff at the venue were extremely accomodating even in the event of last minute change of plans. They were attentive to every need but stayed laid back about everything. The space was elegant and clean, and the staff made all the transitions pleasant and seamless. I really enjoyed working with them and cannot more highly recommend them!

My husband and I had our wedding and reception at the I.W. Phillips house which is the courtyard-garden esque house next to the big yellow Dr. Phillips House. It was absolutely beautiful. The lush landscaping kept my guests cool for my April wedding and it needed minimal decorating! I was in love with the twinkle lights, and visited several times prior to my wedding to ask the front desk (who is so very kind) to turn them on for me just so I could imagine my day. Couldn't imagine working with someone more responsive, flexible, and sweet as Angie. This is DEFINITELY the place to go (in either house!) for a wedding on a budget, or even if you have the big bucks! Perfect!

What an amazing place to have a wedding! Everything from the planning to the day of was made easy by the highly helpful and responsive coordinator, Angie! The location was beautiful. every photo came out perfectly as the house and gardens were a perfect scenery! The caterer they provide was fantastic as well. This venue is highly affordable, and I would recommend upgrading to use their valet service and open bar as well. This is the most affordable open bar you will find in all of Orlando!
Loved every bit of the Courtyard and would do it again in a heartbeat!

I loved this venue. I have zero complaints and neither do any of my guests. Angie was excellent at answering all of my questions usually within 24 hours no matter how silly they were or was able to point me in the correct direction if I needed to talk to someone else. She was always helpful and responsive, something that every bride can appreciate. Lauren, who was my onsite coordinator was amazing. She wasn't a day of coordinator or anything, but she made sure everything was perfect and I honestly didn't have to worry about anything. Apparently 30 minutes or so before the ceremony there was an accident involving champagne flutes, right in the middle of the action... and not only did I not know about it until later but it was handled and things went on without a hitch. Also when I had a slight miscommunication with whether our cupcake vendor was going to be setting up our cupcakes, she immediately got on the phone with them and dealt with it. Based on what I was told her job description was (basically to get me and mine down the aisle and then manage the bar etc) she went 100% above and beyond as far as I am concerned. I couldn't have asked for anyone better.

In short, this was a fantastic venue. I had a chance to see the inside of quite a few of their rooms and they were all nice and clean and well decorated. No one could complain about anything. Don't think twice about having your wedding here.

Angie at the Courtyard was AMAZING to work with. She never hesitated to answer any questions we asked her. She was extremely professional and was very helpful while we were planning the wedding.

We were married at the IW Phillips House and the space was breathtaking. If you are looking for a cozy yet elegant venue, then this is the perfect place for your wedding. All of our guests loved the venue and told us we couldn't have chosen a more beautiful place to get married.

I would recommend this venue to EVERYONE!!!

We can't wait to go back in a year to stay and enjoy the comfortable atmosphere and reminisce about our perfect day :)

I will admit I was nervous about having an outdoor wedding in June in Florida - everyone knows it will be hot, and it's 50/50 if it will rain. But after seeing everyone's reactions I know I couldn't have found a better place. We were at the IW Phillips house, in the garden, and it was magical. The lush greenery kept the temperature down and was the perfect setting. Our entire family had traveled from out of town so many of them were staying right on property, which saved me the headache of worrying about people driving and/or getting lost. Angie and David were wonderful about answering my many many questions and they let me come in as often as I wanted before the wedding to show it off to my parents or to our dj, who was a first-timer at this venue. Could not have asked for anything better :D

We had our ceremony and reception in the IW Phillips House, and it was incredible. As soon as I saw the location, I fell in love with it! I had so many compliments on the location. Many guests told us it was the most beautiful wedding they had been to. Our pictures were breathtaking with all the natural beauty of the historic home. Angie, the coordinator, was very helpful with all my questions and guiding me through the process. They have multiple open houses that I would highly recommend attending. It was so nice to not worry about dressing up a drab reception hall. This venue has so much character! The only thing I had to add was small centerpieces for the tables. The honeymoon suite was lovely and very relaxing after such a long day. I don’t have a single complaint!

I'm so glad that I chose the Courtyard for my ceremony and reception! I had my wedding at the I.W. Phillips House and the courtyard was absolutely breathtaking at night. Many of my guests asked me how I found such a beautiful location! Angie the sales coordinator was really on top of everything and answered my emails next business day. I recieved my full deposit within the 10 business days they promised, and they let me check in to the honeymoon suite a little early the day of the wedding so that I could get my makeup done (hired a makeup artist to do the whole bridal party so we needed all the time we could get). I would definitely recommend them to any other Orlando bride who is interested in getting married in a place with lots of character.

The Courtyard at Lake Lucerne is an ideal place for a wedding. My wedding was Sunday December 6, 2009 at the Dr. Phillips House and it was the perfect Victorian Mansion. It had it's own elegance and class. Everyone that works there is very helpful and Angie the wedding coordinator is there to make sure that your special day goes off without a hitch. It was sooooo perfect and I would do it all over again.

I can't speak highly enough of this venue. The Courtyard is tucked away in a little corner of downtown Orlando (underneath the 408 overpass, ironically, but all traffic noise fades away the minute you enter either of their historic houses.) And as one of the previous reviewers states, your guests will be amazed that such a venue exists in Orlando. We had our wedding reception at the IW Phillips House, which we chose over the Dr. Phillips House because we loved the garden, plus it's more casual and less like a big dining room. It was SPECTACULAR. The little fountain, the lights in the trees, the lush surroundings ... beautiful! And since the venue is naturally beautiful you really won't need to spend any money on decorations. Their prices are a steal for what they give you (ask about their discount packages!) and the service is excellent. I had a great experience with Angie, the coordinator. She was so responsive and would return any emails or phone calls almost immediately. The venue is also very flexible: kids under 6 eat free, your vendors eat free, you get a complimentary floral arrangement for your buffet table, they will refund your money if you overestimated your guest count up to 10 days before the wedding. There is also a night in the honeymoon suite included in your package. We were lucky enough to be able to stay in the honeymoon suite for 2 nights, since nobody had booked a wedding there the following day. And I will say that it is a wonderful place to wake up in the morning, surrounded by all the trees and the sound of running water, their breakfast is delicious and their wait staff super attentive. Wonderful and 5 stars all around!!!

I had been to a friends wedding at the Courtyard years ago and had a great time then.
The setting is superb. When guests arrive, they are truly shocked that a place like this exists so close to downtown. You do not feel like you are anywhere near the city. Our wedding was at the IW Philips House, yet we chose to stay in the Dr Philips House in the Attic Room for the night before and the night of, and what a place to get ready and return to after a great reception and even a night out for an after party in downtown Orlando with some of our guests.
For such a traditional event this classic, romantic setting has all of the bases covered.
They have suggested vendors, and we would say to take the suggestions. It was almost as if it was all-inclusive. Our vendors had all worked together in the past and all had respect for each other. All very professional and all focused on us as a couple and on our guests and the night as a whole.
We attended multiple tastings at the Courtyard and must have walked through every room there as we had most guests coming from out of town.
Our room was amazing, the complimentary wine for the guests was a hit, and the setting transported everyone into a romantic, classical mindset within walking distance to downtown yet surrounded by trees filled with twinkling lights, lush landscape and angel statues. Just a tip - decorations were hardly needed.
Could not have been happier!!!
ALSO - our guest list did fluctuate and Angie adjusted our cost as well as bumped us up to call brands when we hit the right number of guests for that limit... bonus!
Thanks Angie!

We could not have asked for a more beautiful winter wedding. Our ceremony and reception were held at the I.W. Phillips House because it is a more intimate space. The decor and gardens were so beautiful that we didn't have to add much in the way of decorations. Angie was very helpful and always returned our calls. We were lucky to have the only date at the entire facility (either site), and we were able to come in a little earlier than normal to set up some things. We were so impressed with the inn staff; they were great!

I highly recommend The Courtyard at Lake Lucerne. I wanted a venue where I could have both my ceremony and reception at the same place and I wanted a garden type/vintage feel. Out of all of the possible venues that I looked at, The Courtyard won because their customer service was by far superior to any other venue I contacted. Angie was awesome to work with and always answered my emails or phone calls in a timely manner. The venue is absolutely gorgeous at night with the way all the trees are lit up. A To sum it up, The Courtyard at Lake Lucerne was awesome and everything I was hoping for!

We had our wedding and ceremony in the IW Phillips house. Both houses are unbelievably gorgeous but we felt the IW house was more intimate for our smaller wedding. The location is under some overpasses but we couldn't hear a thing anytime that we went to visit the location. ALL of the staff were great and so welcoming. We had a live band and placed them on the dance floor area instead of on the porch and had more tables added to the porch. They offer great options and ideas for your wedding.

This venue was the most private and romantic location I could imagine. The very first time I stepped foot in the Dr. Phillip's House I knew it was where I wanted to have my wedding. They provided the most friendly and comforting staff and were so helpful throughout the planning process. Their wedding packages are great for anyone on a budget but still wanting a venue that will amaze your guests. I didn't want a typical conference room decorated for a party. I wanted something cozy and romantic that would make our guests truly feel that they were part of something special and make everyone feel like family. The Courtyard of Lake Lucerne made this possible in everyway. The suites are amazing too! When we entered our honeymoon suite we were taken back by how beautiful it was. They truly took care of us and made us feel like royalty. If you want a romantic and unique all-inclusie venue for your wedding this is the place that can make it all possible.

My husband and I just got married at the I.W. Phillips house and it was AMAZING! It was fabulous. The Courtyard staff was very, very friendly and helpful. Sherry, Angie, Jacob and everyone there went out of their way to make sure we were happy and felt welcomed. We had our ceremony and reception there. It definitely was the best place we could have picked to get married. Simply beautiful!! At first because it is situated so close to the expressway you think it's not going to be. Once you get back to the magical gardens and courtyard you completely forget about the expressway and we really didn't hear traffic noise. Our guest count was about 75 and there was plenty of room for everyone. The house is beautiful and perfect for unique pictures. We really didn’t have to do much for decorating since the house and the gardens look so lovely. It was nice for us because we had our friends stay in the other 2 rooms in the house. We felt like it was all ours! We did not have any issues whatsoever. I would highly recommend getting married at the Courtyard. It was easy, beautiful and FUN!

This place was amazing. My husband and I wanted something a little different from your typical ballroom and the IW Phillips house with its wide porch and the beautiful garden was perfect. We had just about 75 guests and there was more than enough room for everyone, whether they wanted to enjoy the white tables on the porch, relax inside the gorgeous parlor and dining room or sit out on the patio near the dance floor. I really liked how the house already had so much character so we did not have to go crazy with decorations to make the space feel beautiful. Everywhere you looked there was something interesting to see. The only thing that was a problem was the heat. But that's our own fault for having an outdoor wedding in June. The bartenders were amazing at making sure the drinks were cold and the inside of the house was blissfully air-conditioned. Too bad we couldn't dance in there!

The bartenders were amazing at making sure the drinks were cold and the inside of the house was blissfully air-conditioned. Too bad we couldn't dance in there! Read less

Getting married at the Courtyards at Lake Lucerne was amazing! Everything went wonderfully, the staff are very professional which includes being highly accommodating as most of us brides are doing this for the first time and we all have a different day in mind. We catered with Meiner's, which was the more affordable option.. the food exceeded all expectations, leaving zero leftovers! I highly recommend this venue!!

We truly made the right decision when we chose to have our wedding at The Courtyard at Lake Lucerne. After doing tons of research online, and so many options, my Husband and I finally narrowed down our venues that we were going to visit. I had previously been to The Courtyard at Lake Lucerne and had fallen in love with it. However, my Husband wasn't convinced and had his heart set at another venue. The Courtyard at Lake Lucerne was the last venue that we met with and once we viewed the property and met with Angie, my Husband was in awe so we decided to book our event. We chose the Dr. Phillips house because we loved the gazebo setting and the amount of room for our guests.

I would have given a 5 star rating, because our wedding day turned out amazing, but we were not too happy with the event manager that was assigned to us. During the rehearsal, she was not very friendly and it made the whole process awkward and uncomfortable. Multiple family members approached me with complaints about the person who had set up the rehearsal saying that she was cranky and uptight.

Other than that, everything went smoothly and we had no complaints on the Wedding Day. All of our guests enjoyed the evening and were very impressed with the venue. We still have family talking about how beautiful and elegant the venue was. The other nice thing about the venue is all of the amazing photo opportunities! We would highly recommend the venue to anyone looking for an elegant, classy, intimate and memorable wedding.

It was very easy to work with the Courtyard. Angie handled most things for us and she was detailed in her responses to my questions. Also, the Courtyard really had the best package that we could find. If you are looking for a place to have a wedding ceremony and reception with 100 guests or less this is an excellent venue especially for the price.

If you want a Victorian wedding or outdoor wedding-the Courtyard at Lake Lucerne is your place. It is absolutely beautiful and the venue itself is decoration enough. Angie the event planner was very helpful on any questions that I had along the way and they were all very professional. I would recommend this location to anyone who wants a outdoor ceremony and indoor reception spot in one location it was wonderful!

The Courtyard at Lake Lucerne provided the perfect backdrop for our wedding. The setting was gorgeous and cozy, a balance that is hard to achieve. The staff was ever-supportive. Angie answered all of our questions and Denise, our event manager, was patient and willing to work with us when my family got in a fender-bender on the way to the wedding. Many people asked us how we found such a gorgeous location. We wanted casual elegance and The Courtyard was a huge part of making that happen.

Such a beautiful place to hold a wedding + reception. I have nothing but to praise about everyone esp. Angie, the event manager. Angie has been helping and guiding us along the way and she responses to emais immediately.

The only complain that I have/ guests have is the event coordinator assigned to us.

1- Our event coordinator provided by the Courtyard at Lake Lucerne (note: not a wedding planner/coordinator,) Denise, was not as helpful as I thought she was going to be. At some point, she was being quite impolite to my bridesmaids and the rest of my vendors/family. For example, our catering company and I agreed on putting a small reception table near the entrance, but she insisted what we wanted didn't work and she yanked the table from my bridesmaids leaving my bridesmaids feeling very uncomfortable. Another example: My cousin, who arranged all the floral decorations and who happened to be a guest at the hotel that weekend, asked Denise very politely where she could put the centerpieces temporarily (which she just moved them from her hotel room to the Dr. Phillip House) while waiting for the tables to be setup by the catering staff. Denise could have been saying, "anywhere is fine" or "it doesn't matter to me" etc. Instead, she rolled her eyes and said with attitude, telling my cousin, "I'm not supposed to answer your question because I'm not a wedding planner." C'mon, everyone knew her role was not the wedding planner/coordinator, but since she works for the Courtyard, I guess answering a simple question like that isn't something that difficult, right? Third example: Since we hired a live music group for the entire day, we did not want to spend extra money by hiring a DJ just for setting up mics and speakers. Now, I had my cousin-in-law who has some knowledge in hooking up speakers and mics for his conferences. At some point, he was testing things out and left the wires exposed on the ground. Denise, went up to my cousin-in-law, telling him as a professional he should have known better to conceal the wires. Uh-umm... ok, even if he is a DJ, that was rude for her to say that. Not to mention, that "DJ" is one of my honorable guests! If my cousin-in-law told me before I tipped Denise, I really would not want to tip her at all. The last but not the least complain I have: By 3:30pm, while I was busying getting dressed and ready for the ceremony, she came to my bridal suite and told me, 'Hey Karen, I just want to let you know that I am not the wedding coordinator. Couple of your friends and family keep asking me questions." OOOOOkeee... did she expect me went downstairs in my wedding gown and announced to my entire family that STOP ASKING DENISE QUESTIONS, FOLKS! What was the point for her to make that special trip to my bridal suite for? My cousins, friends and I've been bridesmaids and have been to numbers of wedding in the past and we have never encounted anyone as rude and as unprofessional as Denise. Otherwise, everyone from the Courtyard at Lake Lucerne was great and we couldn't have asked for anything more from them.

All in all, it is a very affordable place for brides on a budget. For those who wants intimate and vintagee weddings, this is pretty much the best place you could get in town. Because I saved a lot on the venue, I could splurge my budget in hiring our top notch photographers and a live music group. So check the place out, girls. It is a cool place to host your dream wedding. :)

I switched my wedding here from Leu Gardens/Farmers Market 3 months out, it was scary but I loved the "package" aspect as in my vendors were pre selected, and everyone had already worked with the Courtyard before. Angie was very good with answering all my questions, they were very accommodating for us to start decorating early. It was great that we went straight upstairs afterwords, and my wedding party hung out on the porch upstairs and we ate the left over catering :). It was amazing and guest were surprised to see a beautiful garden in the middle of downtown Orlando. We planned an amazing wedding here for <10,000$, we spring for the liquor call brands, and valet which I recommend because parking can be confusing. Guest loved it and it was really beautiful.

The only complaint I had was that the on-site coordinator showed up an hour late for the rehearsal. This was due to them having the wrong time marked on their schedule. They apologized but I would have expected some sort of small refund for the inconvenience of having to wait for her to show up. Luckily, everything went perfectly the evening of the actual wedding. No complaints there. This is a beautiful location and our guests really enjoyed themselves. The “breakfast” at this bed and breakfast is not that great so that was the only downside to the location. We stayed there the night of the wedding and many of our guests did as well and the breakfast the next morning was not very good.

The Courtyard is absolutely adorable to have a wedding at and I chose this venue specifically because it has a very "home" feeling about it. It's warm and comforting and I really enjoyed that about the venue.
The only thing that I would recommend doing is verifying with them that no one else is looking at your date when you are. We planned on getting married the end of March and were told they would hold our date until we had seen the venue.... We went a few days after that to look at the venue and I emailed them while I was standing at the venue to confirm we wanted it only to be told the date had been booked but I could choose a different date. Luckily we weren't set on our date but if you are I would confirm before you get your hopes up.

From the beginning, Angie (Event Coordinator) was quick to respond and extremely helpful in planning my wedding. The staff was happy to assist whenever I called or stopped by. My only complaint is with my particular event manager Madison. She was inappropriately dressed for my event and when the reception was over questioned me about a missing chair. I expressed my concerns with the Courtyard and they are discussing Madison's future. Other than that, we were very happy.

We had our wedding at the Dr. Phillip house. Absolutely beautiful location. Angie was very pleasant and responded to my emails at a quickly matter. This location was very intimate and private exactly how we wanted our wedding. Judy from Meiners catering was fantastic, very helpful and friendly. The only thing i was not pleased was paying for the coordinator to coordinate our ceremony. The coordinator was pleasant the day of the rehearsal. The day of the wedding i did not see her till it was time to walk down, and i had to send someone to get her because it was time to walk down and she was not around telling the bridal party to get ready. For a wedding i would think the coordinator should look professional and she was wearing a gray hoodie with dress pants, that is a big no no. I even have her in the background on pictures while everyone was dressed up with her sweat shirt hoodie. The bartender was given specific instructions of the cocktail hour and he did not follow through. The coordinator was next to the bartender the entire reception. During the reception i did catch a glimpse of her kissing the bartender ( another non professional incident), Besides that everything else was beautiful and i would recommend the location just not the coordinator.

From the moment my husband and I toured the Courtyard, we knew we had found our venue. I immediately fell in love with the IW Phillips House and we selected it to host our ceremony and reception. I could not have been more pleased! I encourage you to book early, as many of the popular wedding dates go very quickly. The backdrop is so beautiful that it saved us a lot in our budget, and the package deals were very affordable. There are set times for the beginning and end of events due to the venue also being a bed & breakfast. Toward the end of the night we felt rushed and wished we had the venue for more time. Overall I was very happy with my experience. I would recommend this venue to anyone looking to host an intimate and elegant wedding or event.

We loved our wedding at the Courtyard. The staff was great, but Angie the events coordinator is difficult to get in touch with after you commit to have your wedding there.
The venue is beautiful and most of our out of town guests stayed at the B&B. It's proximity to downtown made it a little difficult to sleep on Saturday night due to traffic noise and sirens. Overall this place was great though.

I absolutely loved how my wedding turned out, but we did have a few bumps in the road. I was told there were bigger tables (8 tops) in the beginning of my planning. But when it came time (a week before my wedding) to set tables with the caterer, only 6 tops were available (8 tops were extra $ - looking back, I should have confirmed earlier...) We were not expecting this. We figured it out and all was fine. Just a little time consuming. Also, made several changes week of (additions as well), most were taken into ac, except we received the wrong beer - again...not that big of a deal, just a surprise. Everything was setup beautifully by my caterer and there was plenty of parking to accomodate. The bridal suite was very nice and cute. Definitely recommend for a smaller wedding!

Reasonable prices, however after initial guest estimate, would not lower the price for fewer guests even a few months before the wedding. Also, even though i had paid for the valet parking, something happened and they were nit there for my wedding. The site was beautiful though and aesthetically it was what i wanted.

This venue is absolutely beautiful however the service we had was horrible. The event manager hovered over our event the entire night and forced my guests to leave. It was understood that guests needed to leave at a certain time but it was not professional when she went up to each guest and said you must leave the premises now even before the music was cut off. The event coordinator only cared about when she was getting paid. She only contacted us for money and nothing else. We had to call the front desk and ask them to clean our rooms rather than having the cleaning staff come and clean it as per their services.

1. We were unable to decorate the ceremony site until 4 hours before the ceremony. Not enough time considering the bride and groom still have to get ready.

2. They did not budge on the ceremony end time. Because we were running late, we begged and pleaded to let the reception go 30 more minutes. They would not have it.

3. It is now 21 days after our wedding and we still have not received our deposit. Contract says it will be returned within 10 days. Not true.

4. Without a doubt, this is a beautiful place to get married.....but don't let the beauty fool you. We wish we could have spent our money elsewhere.
