Our wedding at Turf Valley was absolutely perfect! They know how to do weddings! The coordinating staff is very responsive, very knowledgeable and very helpful. My (now) husband loved doing the tasting there. Everything was perfectly executed in the way that I had pictured and hoped. Honestly, the food was amazing and our guests really enjoyed it. The staff were attentive to us and to our guests. We couldn't have asked for a better experience for our wedding. We highly recommend having your wedding at Turf Valley. They know what they are doing, they know how to make you comfortable and feel valued, and they execute flawlessly.

Jaime Petit was our event coordinator, and she was great. She answered the smallest question and was there for our every need. She went above and beyond for my new mother in law who is in a wheelchair with her requests including measuring specific heights in specific areas. Paul was our Maitre D for the wedding day, very personable and accommodating for all our needs. The rest of the catering staff made the reception flow smoothly. We received many glowing reviews on the food and overall experience at Turf Valley from our guests. You get what you pay for and then some when dealing with true professionals. We can't thank them enough for making our special day memorable for all the right reasons.

The hotel staff was also great.

I had my reception at Turf Valley, and not only was the location beautiful and the food great, but the event went perfectly. This was the result of their excellent staff. Our Maitre D' was attentive throughout the event, but still managed to be unobtrusive. I think the only times I saw her were when I was looking for something, and she would pop up with it. My husband and I were never in want of anything. She went the extra mile to make sure that our parents were well taken care of the whole night.

Jamie, the events coordinator, worked with me from the beginning. She was attentive and very flexible. She would respond to all of my e-mails within a couple of hours, and sometimes within a couple of minutes. She made helpful suggestions throughout the planning process. For example, a lot less people decided to get hotel rooms than I was expecting. About a month before our room block ended she contacted me to see if I wanted to reduce the number of reserved rooms at no additional cost, and thus reduce the number of rooms we were contracted to fill. It was a huge relief. This was just one of the many helpful and considerate things she did for us. I don't know what I would have done with out her.

I never write a review for anything... but after our wedding I knew that I had to write a review for Turf Valley! Our day (and everything leading up to it) was absolutely perfect. Our wedding coordinator was Jaime, and she was awesome. Throughout the whole planning process, she was always available for all of the questions I had, and was so flexible when I wanted to change or add anything. She set it up for me that I was able to have an Executive King Suite room for the night before the wedding, let me come up a couple times to check out the venue, and was so organized and thorough when we brought all of our items pertaining to the wedding. She was so professional and knowledgeable, and I am so glad that she was able to answer all of my questions, and make great recommendations for things we didn't even think of!
The actual day of our wedding at Turf Valley was perfect and so well put together. Our maitre'd, Ashley, was sure that everything was in place, and was there to help us with whatever we needed throughout the entire night. The ceremony in the outside garden was a beautiful backdrop and had great scenery. Our guests raved about all of the food during cocktail hour, and how beautifully set up it was. I mean, even the cocktail hour was glamorous! (Beef Wellington puffs, Chicken Sesame Satay, Raspberry Almond Brie.. mmm!) The staff did a great job setting up. The dinner service was great, and the filet mignon and crabcakes were the best I'd ever had! Everyone could not stop talking about how amazing the food was (my friends and family are still talking about it). I could go on and on about how much fun we had at Turf Valley, and I am so thankful to all of the staff who helped set up such a beautiful day. I am truly so glad that we had Jaime as our wedding coordinator, and that we had our wedding at Turf Valley. It was the perfect day that I wish I could re-live over and over again!

Our reception at Turf Valley was simply amazing and perfect in every way. Jenny B was amazing to work with and made everything so easy. She was very flexible and accomodating to all of our needs. We loved that we could drop off all of our wedding stuff two weeks before in our locker so we didn't have to think about a single thing the day of the wedding or week leading up to it as well. They set up everything perfectly and the Waterford room is so beautiful. They made my wedding dream come to life. The grounds of the venue are also stunning for pictures. We met our Maitre-D Jen and she was awesome. She was very professional, helpful, and friendly. All of our vendors worked smoothly together. The food and cake were amazing. Our guests couldn't get enough of the crab cakes. We stayed at the hotel that night as well as our guests. Everyone enjoyed the bar after the wedding as well as the fire pits outside. It made for a great place to continue the party. The rooms were nice and we had special goodies waiting for us in our room. I wouldn't change a thing and want to relive our wedding again and again.

We recently had our wedding at Turf Valley Resort and were blown away with the amazing service and help we received especially from our event coordinator Jaime Petit!!! From day one I was amazed with the help she was able to give us, I was not the most easy bride to work with and was very indecisive and changed my mind constantly lol. Jaime helped us narrow down details, and what we need and don't need for our event. Especially when it came to the food and cocktail hour, they were very flexible with helping people with a budget and helped us see what we could substitute and change to make it work for us, and it didn't mean we had to sacrifice anything we wanted! Too many other places had us cutting out the liquor of our reception (which obviously a wedding without the bar, is just a lame party lol) but Turf Valley, more importantly Jaime helped us work our budget to get everything we wanted and more! Jaime was more like a wedding coordinator for us lol, she is just that helpful and was always able to be reached via email, even when I would email her at 2am, she would respond sometimes if she was on at home, or first thing in the morning! I never had to chase her down to get a question answered! The ceremony site at Turf Valley is breathtaking! That alone is worth having your wedding there! The convenience of the hotel as well being right there made it so nice for our guests and kept our party going well into the early hours of the morning! The ballrooms are gorgeous and allow you to dress them up any way you like! The food was AMAZING! Part of the reason we chose Turf Valley was because everyone that had been there all they raved about was the food and it def did not disappoint! Also the cocktail hour provides SO much food that you know your guests will not leave hungry! They had the most reasonable pricing with the most amazing venue and service which was a no-brained to choose them! I would HIGHLY recommend this venue and more importantly Jaime Petit to help you!

Turf Valley was the perfect venue for our wedding. Planning was made super easy since we were able to have the ceremony and reception location and all the food contracted through one vendor. Mosts of our guests were also traveling from far away so it was helpful to them to have a single destination where they could attend the wedding and also have the hotel all in the same place. The event planning staff are all very helpful and prompt in answering any questions and have lots of tips and great advice to share. We had our ceremony in the garden and then moved inside to one of the ball rooms for the reception. The food was delicous, the wait staff and maitre'd were very polite and helpful, and all of our guests had a great time.

Having my wedding reception at Turf Valley was the perfect choice. They are conveniently also a hotel so guests can stay the night and not drink and drive which was a huge selling point for me. Included in the package was a complimentary night in the executive suite with a king bed for the bride and groom. My reception was in the Waterford room which doesn't have a banquet hall feel-it has dark wood paneling, dark wood chairs (with padding of course), big windows with a view of the fountain and fits 250 people-it was cozy which is what I wanted for my winter wedding. The staff is very helpful from before I booked with them to the morning after when they gave me 2pm checkout so I could have brunch with my guests. You get a maitre'd for the night, ours was Latisha and she was amazing. She was so attentive without being too much and it was great having her there for any questions I had. They handled the gifts and packed them in my parents car, they packed up my table cloths and glass cylinders (part of my centerpieces) for free and put them in my parents car. All the servers were friendly, the food was delicious-I got a lot of compliments on that-I recommend the brie and raspberry pastry as part of cocktail hour, it was a hit. So many of my guests told me it was the best wedding they've ever been to. They've been doing this for decades so they have everything down to a tee. The cake is included in the contract, it was delicious-even my husband liked it and he's not a dessert person. They use an outside baker and she said she loves working with them and has been for years which I think speaks volumes. This is a great little gem that is a perfect alternative to going somewhere in Baltimore or DC which would automatically be super expensive being in a city. Turf Valley was the perfect choice, I'm so glad I had my reception there.
