To my dear Emily and Melissa of The Orchard House,

I wanted you to know that you were angels! I really mean angels. I feel that God put you two in my life to make this event the PERFECT day for us both! You were more than amazing! You were our angels…so attentive…so enduring…so loving…and so kind! The two of you played a significant part in making sure every detail was ready, set and executed! I could not thank you enough! Emily…I will never forget you kind smile and words before I walked down the aisle and Melissa…I thank you for making my thoughts and glamorous wedding come to real life.

I love you all forever and thank you!

I am so blessed to have found The Orchard House to host my wedding at. Emily and Melissa are so inviting, easy to talk to, and I never felt like I was bugging them with any question that I may have. There were times I would text them 9, 10 at night, panicking about something that I thought would be catastrophic, and they were always able to talk to me and reassure me that everything would be fine.

The venue is beautiful. We had our ceremony in the garden space in front of the house, and we had many comments from guests that it was the most beautiful wedding that they had ever been to. Of course, I can't take much credit for this, because Emily and Melissa (Melissa especially) does a WONDERFUL job at capturing the image you have in your mind for decor and ambience.

You are able to choose from a list of pre-approved vendors through The Orchard House, and I would say that is the way to go because it made my planning process so much more less stressful. You are allowed to bring in your own vendors as long as they're approved through the venue, but I would have to say it was so reassuring that I didn't have to scramble for vendors, because I knew that I had already gotten top notch ones through my package plan with the venue.

I could not recommend Orchard House enough. Emily and Melissa are wonderful, the grounds are beautiful, and they are open and willing to answer ANY questions you have, no matter how silly or inane they sound. Yay The Orchard House!!

Emily and Melissa "The Orchard House Girls" are amazing! They offer package deals where you are able to take or leave as much or little as you want. They are vey flexible in options! Melissa is so creative and loves to party plan while Emily helps you get the bet deal for the price. On my wedding day I didn't have to worry about anything. They coordinated for my event and made sure that every thing went according to my timeline of the days events. I can't speak highly enough about the venue, vendors and staff of the orchard house. I highly recommend them!

I am so glad I went with The Orchard House. I am a person who gets very stressed and they were able to keep me calm throughout the whole process. If you go with them, you have one person who is extremely creative and thinks of all these wonderful ideas and listens to what you want, then you have another lady who is great with all the finances and then their mom is amazing and keeps you calm and stress free on the day of the wedding. My wedding went perfect, even with the rain they were able to keep the guests happy and really watched the weather so we knew exactly when it would stop. It is also a package deal and their vendors are all so happy to help and love their job. The day of the wedding, the cake lady I had was in a car accident and the whole cake was ruined and my wedding planner at The Orchard House found someone to do a cake for the wedding in a few hours. They are wonderful.

I can't say enough good things about The Orchard House and the lovely ladies that run the show! Melissa and Emily are the best! They are so creative and thoughtful in how they help you make your wedding day come to life. The property is beautiful and even though we got married in the rain, I wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere else! This is such a great place, ran by great people! When we had a crisis with a vendor they stepped in and helped pulled everything together. They'll help with all your vendors or none, its up to you! I couldn't have asked for a better place to get married and Melissa and Emily are a huge reason why the Orchard House has so much charm! Take the time to check them and the property out, you won't be disappointed!

My husband and I had our wedding here in June 2011 and it was the wedding I dreamed of. My family is in Texas and as a result I did 95% of the wedding myself and it can be very overwhelming with no support. However, I had a great time with the Orchard House girls. In all the planning I was never told "No" or "That's extra" or "That is not our job" or "We just rent the space". I always felt like they took my wedding as seriously as I did. When you work with them you are not just another bride you are THE BRIDE and they will help you with whatever problem you have without any exasperation. At first it may seem expensive but in the end you realize the service is what makes it worth every penny.I feel like I made real friends. I cant thank them enough for the wedding they gave us.

My reception here was nothing short of amazing thanks to the beautiful grounds and the help of Emily and Melissa. They helped me pick out the best vendors and took care of everything/everyone on the day of. The bridal party was served hor d'oeuvres and mimosas while we were getting ready (my favorite part). The grounds are what initially drew me to have my reception here just because they are so beautiful, but if I had known how much how much Emily and Melissa would help me beforehand (and how creative they were), then I would have jumped on this place a lot faster. My reception was just perfect:)

Emily and Melissa at the Orchard House have such a positive, upbeat energy! I don't think we ever heard "no" or "can't" anytime during the whole process of planning and doing! They offered tons of suggestions, listened carefully, and laughed and joked continually. Very calming, truly. The only (and I mean ONLY) suggestion I would make is for brides to contact the OC early in the "need-to-know-by" timeline, whenever a question needs an answer, etc., as the ladies don't employ office help to answer the phone, etc. Every once in a while, it takes a bit for them to get back to you. Personally, we were ok with that, given the value we received for the dollars we spent with them... but if you are a Type A bride, you should let them know up front so everyone can live with everyone's expectations!

The Orchard House was wonderful! They helped my husband and I soo much with providing us the best vendors. They turned and cleaned that place around so beautifully I was stunned. I am overly pleased with their overall professionalism and their quality of service. They were very persistent with doing whatever they could to make our wedding day spectacular. I enjoyed their company, and hope that many more will also see what a great job they can do.
