Northgate Country Club
Northgate Country Club (NCC) is a gorgeous venue, and I had my wedding reception there. My on-site coordinator was Misty, who was very flexible with our arrangements. On the wedding day, Arty was my bridal attendant, and she took great care of us! She made sure the bridal party's belongings got to the changing room, that my husband and I got a hot plate of food, and that our drinks were always topped off. I saw that everyone there was working hard to make things go smoothly.
My mother-in-law noticed that one of the dishes we chose for the menu was not served to our guests, but was replaced with something else (without notifying us). That was a bit disappointing, but the food was good. Another issue was due to a breakdown in communication with the cake baker. Based on my understanding of the situation, someone at NCC forgot to deliver a message, and that eventually led to several misunderstandings and the situation becoming bigger than it should have...
Northgate is a gorgeous venue, and Misty and the rest of the staff were outstanding. We are so grateful we chose Northgate because they truly made our fairytale wedding a dream come true. Everything was on point the day of our wedding, and all of our family and guest gave compliments to Misty and the staff the entire evening! I would highly recommed this venue to anyone :)
Misty did a fabulous job being very flexible with us! She was more than willing to meet with us several times for the tasting because we were unsure with the hordevours. The food was great and we got plenty of compliments from it! The venue is fantastic and it is unfortunately that it rained the day of our wedding. We were suppose to have an outdoor ceremony but it was moved to underneath the porto cochere, which was still gorgeous due to the mirrors on the ceilings. We loved working with Misty. Also, the bridal attendant (I can't remember her name right now) was so on top of things and always there when I needed another drink! It had been a longgggggggg day and it was very much needed by the time we got to the country club. Thanks again to Misty and her team for the fabulous work!
The friendliness and professionalism surpassed all expectations!
Highly recommend Northgate Country Club!
The event manager, Misty Hersey, is outstanding!
Event Date: January...
This Venue is absolutely gorgeous!! I loved the look it gave my wedding and the flexibility I had was great. I would totally get married there again and again! The food was wonderful everyone told em how amazing it was. the presentation and everything was to die for! I wish I could eat dinner there all the time! The down side is that it was super hard to get a hold of Misty the event coordinator when I called. When I signed the contract she was new there and gave me paperwork from the previous event coordinator which was fine until I asked her things that were in the paper work and she said "oh we don't do that" That, yet again would have been fine and dandy if she updated me on the paperwork when she got situated there. She DID honor the paperwork and gave me better deals than what it was showing. Another minor complaint was that she gave me a deal on a specific decoration and told me she would throw it in for me since I signed during the Bridal Extravaganza. When asked about it later she must have not noted it and told me that it was extra. Which when its down to the wire and someone tells you that you have to pay more for what you envisioned its a bit of a shocker. In the end she DID give it to me after I reminded her the circumstances. Lastly, I was told that she would be with me on my wedding day helping me with the flow of the wedding its self so of course I told her all the little details. Well the day of I had a bridal assistant which is fine she was wonderful and helped a lot! But, I was not told there was going to be a bridal assistant and I didn't even see Misty until dinner when she was helping cleaning up. I am sure she was doing tons of things behind the scenes but I just wish I was told that she was not going to be there helping me and that I was going to have someone else. I was under the wrong impression for many different things. All in all I loved Northgate!
From the beginning, my husband and I didn't have a traditional engagement/wedding planning experience. We got engaged and then immediately moved to Florida where he was stationed for the Air Force. After talking to a few other venues and coordinators, I knew Northgate was the place for our reception. Misty and the entire Northgate staff were so accomodating and helpful as I planned my entire wedding from another state. I was only able to come in once before the week before the wedding and Misty was able to get all of the necessary details hammered out in less than an hour. It was so nice to not have to deal with a pretentious coordinator. Instead, Misty was funny, nice, and incredibly sincere in everything she did for our wedding. I seriously don't know what i woudl have done without her. We didn't have the biggest budget, and Misty helped us figure out the best way to fit my dream wedding into my budget reality. She even made sure all of the table runners, napkins, and centerpieces I brought in were set up for me, and there were live fish in my centerpieces. She let me bring in everything the day before and kept it in her office until the staff was ready to set it up. All of my concerns were answered with a calm "no problem," or "don't worry about it," or "i'll make sure it gets done exactly the way you want it." Our wedding favors were sunglasses and Misty took it upon herself to lay out a pair at every seat, and there were over 200 people at the reception. It was such a relief, especially considering half of our guests were from New Jersey and the other half from Texas: we had 2 very different wedding expecations to fullfill, and with Misty's help, we pulled it off with flying colors. My husband and I and both of our parents received calls for a full 2 weeks after the wedding from guests in awe of the beautiful reception and venue, incredible food, and over FUN time they had at the wedding. If I had to plan the wedding all over again (thankfully, I don't, but if I absolutely had to...), there's not a doubt in my mind that I have the reception at Northgate again. Thanks again to Misty and all of the Northgate Staff!
I had the most amazing experience at Northgate! Our wedding reception was held there on July 31, 2011. From the personalized service to the amazing food and beautiful venue, I couldn’t have asked for a better reception! Our coordinator Misty was so helpful every step of the way and was always available via email or cell phone. She went out of her way to make sure that everything was perfect! We opted for lemonade to be served during the reception and since my colors were black and white and hot pink, Misty arranged for there to be pink lemonade! It was perfect! She was there the entire reception and helped me fix my dress bustle that broke. I had a bridal attendant as well and I didn’t have to do a thing the entire night. The food at Northgate is to die for and I STILL get compliments from our guests on how delicious the food was! All in all, Northgate was the perfect venue for our reception and I highly recommend it to all of my friends and family!
My daughter's wedding reception was held at Northgate Country Club in July. She and I were both planning this event living out of state and we had such a WONDERFUL experience!!! The venue is absolutely beautiful and the staff were a delight to work with through the entire planning process. Misty, our event coordinator, was right on top of things the entire time. Our tasting session was a blast! When we arrived at the reception, I will never forget pulling into the drive and seeing all of the huge windows aglow with candlelight - it was truly a magical evening for us and for all of our guests. My daughter and I had a very specific idea of what we wanted the reception room to look like and how we wanted our decor placed - Misty surpassed our expectations!! It was just exquisite! The food was incredible and my daughter and son-in-law were treated like royalty!!! My husband and I even had our own attendant - it was the most unbelievable service!!! Our friends and family kept commenting on how beautiful the setting was, how delicious the food was, and how FUN the reception was!!! THANK YOU, thank you to Misty, Jemma and all of the Northgate staff for a truly special and unforgettable wedding reception for our precious daughter and son-in-law!!!!
I recently got married at Northgate Country Club. The wedding was beautiful, and I got endless compliments on the physical appearance of the wedding and taste of the food. The cake was delicious, the flowers were beautiful, the linens were great and the DJ had the party going all night. The staff was also great. Jemma, the Service Director, the bridal assistant Arteerean, and the other staff were very kind and friendly, and took great care of us. However, after spending a year planning my wedding, I have to say I was less than impressed with the unprofessional planning process that took place at Northgate, and my final wedding coordinator, Misty. Towards the end of my planning process I was not looking forward to my wedding because of all of the headaches Northgate was causing. I was crying a lot for the last couple of weeks leading up to my wedding. It was supposed to be a joyous moment for me but it was not at all. Unfortunately I keep in mind the trouble that I had with Northgate and that gets in the way of the joy I should look back on. It was not the experience I was expecting to have with them. If I could do it all over again I would do everything the same except have my wedding at Northgate.
I went through 3 wedding coordinators throughout the 1 year I was planning my wedding. Unfortunately, nothing was being written down in our file, so when the last coordinator, Misty, came in, it was like we were starting over from the beginning. Since Misty never emailed me to introduce herself or give me her contact information, I had to email other Northgate employees to even find out who she was. I thought it was very rude and unprofessional of her to not introduce herself, and go over the wedding details with a bride who was already in a contract with the country club.
Another frustration was that, instead of going over our wedding details with me, she would make changes and neglect to tell me. For example, she changed the menu we were given by the previous coordinator, didn’t tell me, and made it difficult when I requested it be changed back to what I was promised before. We had to contact the owner to get the problem resolved. In the end, our problem got solved but I do not feel that the problem should of escalated to as big of a deal as it did. The only way I would find out about any of the changes, was if I asked questions, and luckily I did! Can you imagine showing up on your wedding day with these big changes and not knowing about them?
Also, when we discussed the date and time to have my wedding rehearsal, Misty said I could do it at any time on the day we chose. A week before the wedding she said we couldn’t have the rehearsal at the time we decided because there was another event happening. This pushed our rehearsal back to 8:00 in the evening, which my family and I were unhappy about because it was so late and we had made dinner plans. It was also frustrating because the guests from the previous event were still lingering around during our rehearsal, making it difficult for us to practice. To top it all off, Misty did not even show up for the wedding rehearsal! At this point, my aunt, who happens to have previous experience working as a coordinator at Northgate, took over my wedding rehearsal and sort of became my unofficial wedding coordinator since Misty was neglecting to do her job.
During the day of the wedding, Misty never came up to me to see how everything was going or to congratulate us or anything. She practically ignored us. In fact, most of the time, the workers there were asking my aunt, who was my bridesmaid, what was going on because Misty was not around or didn’t have answers to their questions. My maid of honor also went to Misty to ask her where something was and Misty sarcastically replied “I don’t know, no one tells me anything. Maybe Hanna (who is my aunt and was my bridesmaid) will know.” I was told by my bridesmaids and guests that they got sarcastic and rude responses from Misty on numerous occasions which I find very unprofessional and inappropriate coming from someone who is supposed to be a professional.
Another issue was that we were promised that heavy hors d’ oeuvres would be served for an hour. The food was delicious however, some of them were only served and refilled for only 30 minutes. One of my guests didn’t even get any, and when she asked Misty if they were going to put out more, she replied, “No, we are not going to refill those”. I also had guests telling me that the waiters were picking up plates before they were even finished. Sadly, some of my guests had to hold on to their plates so they wouldn’t get taken away. What’s even worse is that my father-in-law, some wedding party members, and guests were not served cake. After waiting to be served, my father-in-law took it upon himself to go to the kitchen to get a piece of cake.
We were told that Northgate would set up and break down any extra decorations that we bring. Not a single employee of Northgate offered to help us. When Hanna went downstairs to ask if Northgate Staff would do the set up, the front desk agent told her “I will find out and let you know”. Two hours later they still had told us nothing. My bridesmaids were running around Northgate trying to get everything set up because another promise was broken by Northgate. When the wedding was over, stress was left on my family to break down and pack all of our pictures, cake, and other décor. I later found out that my family was left to do this and didn’t leave Northgate until after 1 AM. My Maid of Honor told me she went downstairs to ask a lady at the front desk if she and the other staff members would help clean up and she was sarcastically told, “We can’t do that anymore”. I was extremely angry and irritated to find out that my family had to do the work that I was told would be done by Northgate staff.
As future advice, I would encourage Northgate to give the groomsmen private locker rooms, as the groomsmen told me there were men in and out of there all night who were smoking, and left the disgusting smell of cigarette smoke on our groomsmen tuxedos and belongings.
I thank all of the wait staff, bartenders, Service Director Jemma, and bridal assistant Arteerean, for their wonderful service as we were more than pleased with their assistance. However, I would absolutely not recommend this venue to prospective brides because of their neglectful, unprofessional, irresponsible, sarcastic, “coordinator”, Misty. I would encourage all of the future brides to steer clear of Northgate Country club when you are searching for a wedding venue. Though it is a beautiful venue, the headache and disappointment of the service received there by the coordinator is not worth it. One of my bridesmaids and my maid of honor have written an email to the owner of Northgate Country Club and have yet to get a response from him.
I absolutely loved Northgate Country Club and couldn't have asked for a better reception there! I was nervous at first because in the middle of the wedding planning, Northgate got a new wedding coordinator named Hanna. Well, let's just say me and my mom did not like her very much and she seemed very rude and unprofessional! Then, my prayers were answered and I received an email from Misty saying she was the new wedding coordinator and I would be working with her from then on. And from then on, everything was perfect. Misty was very flexible with everything I needed. When we met her for the first time to do the food tasting, it was such a relief to have a nice, honest, and cheerful wedding coordinator, instead of what we had at first in Hanna(the previous, stuck-up coordinator).
So it was the day before my wedding and of course there has to be something to stress me out! Well, we came to set up my linens that we rented from Linen Designs(please be advised to NEVER rent from them!) and they were absolutely terrible! The chair covers were all different shades of brown and different types of fabrics, the sashes were frayed all around the edges, and every piece of linen looked like they were bundled up in a trash bag and used as a bed to sleep on! They were so wrinkled and so embarrassing! I eventually broke down and was crying, and once Misty came upstairs and saw the linens and how upset I was, she immediately offered to call and talk to the linen company(I wouldn't really consider it a company, but I couldn't think of a better word that was appropriate!) The company told her that they would come out later that day and fix the linens. Misty assured me that it was going to be ok and to stop stressing and enjoy my rehearsal and big day the next day! So that's what I did! It wasn't until the next day that I found out that the linen company lied and they never came to fix the linens! Could have been a crisis, but fortunately for me Misty rented a steamer herself and got an iron and fixed my linens for me. That was way outside of her job description and she did not have to do that! She basically saved me from having another breakdown and I was able to enjoy the wedding without worrying about the linens!
Also, we were running late from the church getting to the reception and I was nervous because we were given a specific time line of how everything was going to run, and now it was going to be all messed up! Well, luckily for us Misty was waiting at the door to arrive to explain our new timeline and how everything was going to run! As we tried to hurry up and bustle my train so we could go upstairs and make our entrance, my maid of honor couldn't figure out to bustle it! I was anxious to get up there and was getting frustrated, but Misty came and fixed it for me!
The rest of the night ran very smoothly and was absolutely perfect. Everything from the food, to our own personal attendant, to our awesome wedding coordinator was none other than perfect! I'm so glad I chose Northgate Country Club to have my reception! I would absolutely recommend any future bride to have their reception there! Thank you to all the Northgate Country Club staff, and especially to Misty Hersey for making my wedding so perfect!
Beautiful venue with delicious food! Our reception looked like a fairy tale and was absolutely amazing. Additionally, Misty (the event coordinator) was very easy to work with and I was allowed to use the space at an earlier date to take my bridal portraits. May 21, 2011
My wedding was as perfect as it could get! I loved my wedding planner, Lindsay. I am a very organized person and do not trust many people to take over my projects, but I felt at complete ease letting Lindsay help control my day. Both the ceremony and reception went great. I had about 200 guests and Everyone told me that they absolutely loved the food. People loved the view of the lake and golf course too. I have not heard one negative comment about the wedding. I am extremely happy with the way my wedding turned out. I absolutely recommend that anyone use Northgate for any wedding or any other event.
Northgate to the rescue. Our first venue canceled on us because of damages from hurricane Ike. We searched and I was about to settle when we came across Northgate. I instantly fell in love with that place. Not only the venue but the ceremony outside. It was definitely not in our budget but I had to have it. It was my dream wedding and I didn't care how many arms or legs were going to get cut off just for me to have this place. Not only was this place amazing, Lindsay was also amazing. She helped out so much, she was 100% involved and if I needed some kind of help at midnight...she would respond to her email or facebook ASAP.
The food was amazing, they worked with us on a special menu. We didn't want the norm when it comes to wedding food. We wanted a spin off of latin food. They made it happen!
The day of the rehearsal I was pretty bummed because it was going to pour the next day as well as the rest of the weekend. I wasn't too happy with plan b or c....I just didn't think that looked as beautiful as the outside ceremony. Lindsay once again came to my rescue. She offered the stairs as a ceremony site and I had to have it. The percentage of rain for the day of the wedding was 80 and Lindsay kept saying to keep our fingers crossed. I told her...rain or shine...I want it on the stairs. :)
It poured all morning and when the ceremony started, it stopped raining...the rest of the night was clear as well as the rest of the weekend. Which means good luck to our marriage. :)
Thanks to all of the staff including Lindsay!
Northgate Country Club is a beautiful venue with a wonderful staff who truly set out to make your day wonderful. Michelle is great and really listens to what you want and works to make the day work as smoothly as possible. The food there is incredible and there are tons of options to work with. Everyone who attended commented on how gorgeous everything was and how perfect the day was. It truly was everything we wanted for our wedding day.
We fell in love with the site on our first visit. We held both the ceremony and reception there. Our ceremony was held outdoor right in front of the fountain. It was very very beautiful. The pictures we took outside came out to be gorgeous! Michele, the wedding coordinator, and her assistant did a really good job in making our dream wedding come true. They were really wonderful at the rehearsal, and they did a good job in coaching my big family for the ceremony the next day. The food was delicious, and the staff were really friendly. I was stress-free on my wedding day!
The Northgate Country Club was AMAZING! Michele the event coordinator was awesome. Her experience and attention to detail was so helpful. We had our ceremony and reception at Northgate. Michele handled all the set up, tear down, all communications with the vendors for that day. All I had to do was show up and get dressed. They were very good at guiding me through choosing vendors, and setting them. ANY time I had a question, regarding the country club or just simple wedding advice I could call her. Her assistant Christina was amazing too. She helped out so much. They were both like quiet little busy bees in the background making sure everything went off without a hitch (and it did). The food is WONDERFUL!! Yumyum! For the service, beauty and the food... it was a STEAL!
Northgate was beautiful! They provided the planning and the catering which the process easier!
I had my wedding here 12 years ago and it was wonderful. The Wedding Coordinator, Angela, was helpful and professional. She took care of everything and I never had any worries.
Photographed a fantastic wedding reception at Northgate in 2009, excellent service from all severs to the guests.
One of the highest recommendations I can give Northgate is to choose them for my own event. Being a professional photographer, I could choose anyone I would like, I choose Northgate, an elegant large country club venue with reasonable prices and the food was excellent. My family and I were well pleased and so was my daughter since this was her engagement party.
We have worked with Northgate CC for many years!! They are amazing! Beautiful venue and great food... we love working with Northgate & recommend them to anyone!
