My ceremony was on the golf course and I decided to have a spiral instead of the traditional seating arrangement and the staff from the club reproduce it exactly as in the picture I gave them. The location is beautiful and so the Ballroom where the reception was held, perfect for a black tie affair. The staff couldn't be more accommodating and their event coordinator, Judy Hankerd, was exceptional. She went above and beyond to make sure I had the wedding of my dreams, and I did!!
The big disappointment was the dinner. I liked what we had at the tasting, my only comment was the salmon being a little dry and the steak with too much condiment, and Judy took note of that. The day of I felt embarrassed with these two entrees...I couldn't eat it!! The champagne was terrible too...When I asked, Walnut Hills didn't know what champagne they were going to serve, but oh boy!! I would have been more than happy to pay more for something decent for the toasting.
So just watch out for the entrees you pick and the champagne...with guests coming from France that was an issue for me. Other than that I was very happy with this venue.

I am beyond thrilled with how our wedding reception turned out at Walnut Hills! It is an absolutely beautiful place to get married. The ballroom has a breathtaking view of the golf course. It's big enough to seat 200 people comfortably but is still an intimate setting allowing people to easily mingle from table to table. The food and service is beyond amazing! Judy, our event planner, went above and beyond to make not only our day special, but the entire process smooth, stress free, and fun, and about what we wanted. She made sure the bar was stocked with our choice alcohol....Oberon for the groom and Fireball for me :) Judy is so helpful and is extremely knowledgeable about everything wedding related. It was a wonderful experience. We highly recommend this place!

I think Walnut Hills is a wonderful reception venue - the room looked very nice when it was all set-up and the location is great. Planning was fairly easy and I received quick responses to e-mail inquiries, which I appreciated. I feel kind of bad giving it less than 4 or 5 stars because of those things but the service at this place was....not good. Not good at all. Food service was slow, the food wasn't particularly warm, and people weren't getting their waters refilled. . Two or three tables didn't get cake and only one received the "back-up" dessert that the venue provided. Guests had to go into the room with the bar to get regular drinks like pop and coffee. In short, service was abysmal. I know that Walnut Hills is under new ownership and they're probably still ironing out some kinks or whatever so hopefully that has something to do with it. Ultimately we had a great time and so did many of our guests, which is what mattered most to us.

I loved having my reception at Walnut Hills. They were very accommodating and everything turned out great! My advice to ALL future brides, not just those interesting in Walnut Hills, would be to get as many details that have been discussed in writing - including pricing. The original event coordinator we were working with got a new job so we ended up talking to three different people about our wedding plans during the last 4 months of planning. There would have been less confusion and going back over details if we would have had more info in writing.
