We fell in love with the place the second we got there. The grounds are gorgeous and Michelle, the wedding coordinator/planner/owner, is absolutely amazing! She made everything so much fun and EASY. She makes sure that everything turns out just the way the bride and groom want it. Our wedding was flawless and it couldn't have been better. It was truly our dream wedding thanks to Michelle and the Jones Victorian Estate! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Where do I even begin.....
I (the bride) stumbled upon the Jones Estate website during my hunt for the perfect venue. It looked like a gorgeous venue from the pictures online. But when you visit this place in person, get ready to be blown away, not only by the beauty and uniqueness of the estate, but also by Michelle Gregory, the coordinator/owner. I knew from the moment I stepped out of my car, that this IS the place. Michelle greeted me, my then-fiance, and my parents, as if we had known each other for years. She basically ran through the whole day with us, so it made it easy to visualize how the day would flow. There was not one thing I questioned about this place after the appointment. My then-fiancé and I had already visited about 7 different venues prior to the Jones Estate, and we always found a flaw in each venue. But not at the Jones Estate! The entire planning process, including Michelle’s ideas and suggestions, as well as the florist’s (Flower Allie), was such a fun experience. She always made sure my then-fiance was happy with each decision that was made. Anyone who knows me, knows that I’m a control freak, but Michelle help me stay sane during the planning process by making it fun. The amount of time and effort she spent with us was so appreciated. She is genuinely concerned, and you can really feel that. She knows exactly what makes a great wedding day, and she truly just wants the bride and groom to have fun. Her attention to detail is like no other. She was born to do this, and to do this at a venue like the Jones Estate, is just perfection in itself. One would think that the cost might be over most couples’ budget, considering how much you get. But you really do get more bang for your buck! Honest to God!
We were married on May 16, 2009, and 1 year later we are still getting compliments of how wonderful our wedding day was, and how awesome Michelle was! How often do wedding guests remember and compliment the wedding coordinator?! Only MICHELLE!!!!

I have nothing but kind words to say about Michelle. She was most helpful in EVERYTHING and so so kind. I recommend this venue to ANYONE getting married, really I do. The gorgeous Victorian house was THE PERFECT back drop for our Hallowedding. Michelle was on top of her game: responded to emails quickly, took us to Shinoda to find wedding decor, and always had other vendors to recommend. She knows everyone! The ONLY bad thing I can say about this service is the DJ, Jon Muir. Michelle has a back up DJ and I say GO WITH HIM! Jon threatened his services TWO WEEKS before our wedding all because I was asking about my Father/Daughter dance because we were doing something special and wanted to practice. I didn't get the break down of our dance until a couple days before the wedding. Needless to say, we didn't get to practice it and just had to wing it. He LAGS. He put off everything until "tomorrow night" or "next week" and I understand that he has other clients, but I did not appreciate him lying about getting things done and most importantly threatening his services TWO. WEEKS. before our wedding. UNACCEPTABLE. I also had a huge list of music we would have liked to hear and cannot remembering hearing ONE of the songs that night. He would also cut songs in half - my mom requested a song and he stopped it right before the chorus which was my mom's favorite part! The music HE chose was not for us. AT ALL. So, that would be my only complaint and warning. When I confronted Michelle about the situation she was very understanding and apologetic for Jon (since he was NOT) and even suggested we use her other DJ, but unfortunately we stuck with Jon. BIG mistake. I cannot say it enough. DO NOT USE JON MUIR!

Our experience at The Jones Victorian Estate, was unlike anything I have ever experienced. Michelle and her staff go above and beyond to make your wedding unique and amazingly special. Michelle's attention to Detail and creativeness, helps you think outside the box, and adds those special touches. She really knows what she is doing! She was there when ever I needed to call, email, or stop by. She helps make you, as the bride, feel so at ease and calm. Knowing that my wedding was in her hands, was the best feeling ever. Even when it rained till and HOUR before the wedding, was Michelle able to keep me, a worry wort, at ease!!! She was right, it all turned out perfect!!! Michelle's packages at The Jones, are all enclusive, and then some! Her food is out of this world. I never got to meet her chef, but my hats off to him! Everyone complimented our food and the choices that were made. At your food tasting, and I use "Tasting" lightly, you get a feast! A full 3 course meal!!! I particularly loved being able to invite guests along with us to our tasting, it helped with the decision making! I loved being able to eat my wedding food TWICE!! And yes, we did eat on our wedding day! Michelle and her staff made sure of that!

Her DJ., is so sweet and was incredibly flexible with his meeting times. He was open to anything that we wanted to be apart of our day and even helped us fix the music for our first dance! He speaks very well, and I love that he went around to our guests and introduced himself and opened up any requests that they may have for the dancing. I got positive feed back from our guests, and that made them feel like they were an active part in our day!

Her Florist, Flower Allie does amazing flowers. She knew exactly what I wanted from a few, (OK a few dozen) pictures, that I brought to our meeting. Michelle attended all our meetings with the florist. Allie at Flower Allie, came through with everything we had talked about!! Her flowers were more than I had even envisioned! My flowers were one of my favorite parts.

Her baker was nice. She was fun to talk to at the tasting. Our cake was nice, but it was not the color I had wanted and was adorned with flowers, but not the ones that I had hoped. We chose to have a small 2 tier cake and then cupcakes. From what we heard from our guests the cupcakes were good. We didn't get to enjoy one at our wedding.

I had Wedding Dress delimma, and Michelle was there with me, just 2 weeks before my wedding, making sure I found another dress. She had referred me to Marry Me Bridal, and I thank her for that! They were amazing!

Michelle's kindness, supportiveness and generosity, go beyond words!! SHe makes you feel like you have known here for ever! She is the kind of person that you NEVER want to lose touch with. She still, is there when I email or call just to say HI! She will forever hold a spot in my heart!!!!!

Our Gratitude cannot be expressed enough!

I was so stressed out trying to find a site for my Wedding and Reception. I had been looking and just happen to find the Jones Victorian Estate on line. From the very first meeting, Michelle Gregory, the stylist and coordinator, but me at ease. I was worried about my gown and flowers and photographers and everything! She helped me through my frustrations and gave me little tasks to do. She was there every step of the way. I think in the beginning, I must have called her ten times a week. She always greeted me with so much love and always took the time for me. The planning was a blast. We set up a "mock up" of the table designs so I could see how it would look. She had so many suggestions and ideas that it became so easy!! She would say, "Do you like it or love it?" When it's broken down to those simple terms, it's so easy to make a decision. I think that was my biggest problem... making a decision.!What a complete change from the beginning. We talked about decoration at the Estate; for example the gates leading to the wedding ceremony, the bar menu and set up... every little detail she made so easy! The best part was it reflected my style and everyone said it felt so comfortable.
I love the Jones Victorian Estate because my Wedding and Reception was completely private being the only one for that day. The drive in, the beautiful setting, the wonderful staff, the great food, the fun planning, all made my experience unforgettable. I enjoyed my finance during the planning time and anytime I would start panicking, he would say, "Call Michelle!."
The cost was in our budget but in hind sight, I would have paid more to have the peace of mind she provided to me, my fiance and family with!

I was the mother of the groom. The bride fell in love with the Jones Victorian Estate and Michelle Gregory, the wedding planner, and I immediately saw why. Michelle is wonderful about working with the couple and their families to make their special day everything they want it to be. In our case, the bride has lovely taste, knew the look she wanted, and Michelle worked with her to make it happen. Many guests commented on how beautiful the venue was, how delicious the food, and the high quality of service from Michelle and her staff. It really was perfect.

Michelle is a wonderful, caring, loving person and she brings these qualities to her wedding planning at her facility. She thought of everything and made the planning of my daughter's wedding go smoothly. The wedding was one of the best days of my life with a lot of the credit going to Michelle. She was everywhere making sure everything went smoothly for us and the guests. At one point, I took off my shoes and shortly afterwards she came and brought my slippers. This is the kind of attention to detail Michelle provides that make her weddings special.
