Quality of Service
We love Villa Parker and how beautiful it is! As soon as my husband and I looked at the venue we knew it was where we wanted to get married. We love that we get the entire venue for the entire day and that there is a wonderful bridal suite big enough for the bridal party to get ready in. They were also very accommodating with providing glassware and some overlays that were leftovers from other events which kept our costs down. The day of the event went very smoothly and there were only a few hiccups overall. Make sure if you want to play a slideshow at your event, that it plays correctly the day before! We were not informed that there was a certain format we had to put it as and my poor sister worked so hard to do it. They will also charge a fee to use the projector. They were getting their liquor license while we were planning so we weren't too clear about bar fees until a couple days before the wedding. The wrong napkins were ordered (but my mom was more upset than I was about that ;)). It was sometimes hard to get a hold of the Villa during the planning process but the day came together and our on site coordinator came through on the day.

My husband and I loved Villa Parker! We immediately fell in love with it the first time we went there to visit. It's quite expensive, but we felt that the atmosphere was worth the extra budgeting we would have to do. The bridal room is gorgeous and huge compared to other venues we checked out. The bathroom is definitely big enough to have your bridal party's hair and makeup done there. And the grounds are spectacular! I also loved that they only do 1 wedding a day, so you never feel like you're being shuffled around another bride and her big day. The planning process could have been better though. Our consultant quit half way through and we felt like the owners didn't do that great a job of checking in with us and seeing if everything was going well or if we needed help with anything. I would completely recommend having the "planning" meeting earlier than 3 months out. Because of our schedules, we actually didn't have ours until about 1.5 - 2 months out. We were completely stressed before the planning meeting, but felt better afterwards. There were a lot of things that I learned about during that meeting that would have been nicer to know earlier, such as the venue had sparklers to use at the end of the ceremony if I wanted, that you had to pay an additional amount to rent their china, and that they would handle all of the set up and tear down. Some of these items had been implied, but nothing was confirmed until the meeting. (Be careful of the additional costs that tend to come up after you've already paid the venue fee. Make sure you completely understand the contract and don't be afraid to ask seemingly simple questions). Overall, our wedding was a huge success and we feel like Villa Parker had a big part in that! PS - they do once a month tastings where some of their preferred vendors come, give out samples, and info. It's a great time to meet other vendors if you're still looking! I went several times just to enjoy the food and see Villa Parker in the different seasons with varying decorations.
