The coordinator we worked with, Kelley Ann, was amazing. The venue was beautiful and they know exactly what they are doing. However, the hotel staff needs a little work. We spent a lot of money making gift bags with snacks and drinks in them to be given to the guests upon check in. We learned later that night that several people weren't given bags and then after we complained, some guests received multiple bags so that there weren't enough. You are 5 star hotel folks, get it right, it's not that hard. Our wedding was beautiful and the food was delicious. Some promises were made to us that were not fulfilled such as which suite I would have, how many bars would be available, etc but overall, everything was perfect.

Everything about this venue was perfect! They organize the vendors you choose, which helps make planning so much easier. Kelley Ann is the social catering manager, and she helped make our day seamless and special. We could not have been happier with our choice of a beautiful venue!

The Umstead Hotel & Spa is worth it! From my first meeting to the wedding (a span of 11 months), I felt like the only bride they were working with for the entire year (compared to other, similar venues I considered that felt more like wedding factories!). Kelley, the coordinator, is hands-on and flexible. She listened to our wants and needs and helped create our dream wedding. Most importantly, she is super responsive and thorough. I felt totally at ease knowing she was at the helm!

Our guests raved about the beauty of the venue and the quality of the food and beverages. Seriously, many of us will continue to dream of food served as it was cooked in their restaurant to-order and not pre-prepared like other wedding venues. The hotel and event staff were attentive to our guests throughout the weekend, too. There were so many lovely little extras throughout the weekend - fresh fruit and mimosas served the morning-of, for example - that again, just made us feel so special. I cannot more highly recommend this venue to other brides, it was the best choice we made during wedding planning!

We JUST got married at the Umstead and loved EVERY minute of it. From the moment we walked in and were discussing possibly using it as a location for our wedding to the moment we walked out after our wedding weekend with a small tear in our eye that it was over, we felt like we were treated as royalty the entire time. We TRULY appreciate everything they did to make our wedding a memorable experience.

HIGHLY recommended!!!
