In addition Chapel and the reception hall at one location tucked into the corner of the piney woods, this venue has a unique decorate with natural wood roof and glass walls so wide that the room looks very spacious.
We also cites a review of one client who had hired the venue, which Landman H of Yelp website here
They did a fantastic job with our wedding in terms of keeping it organized and on point.
The whole event flowed smoothly on the day of.
We got lots of compliments about the venue and food.
It seemed like everyone really enjoyed it.
The pictures on the website are accurate and this is a very good facility for both the ceremony and dinner. We looked around town quite a bit and did not find a nicer venue.
The chapel was surrounded by trees – creating a serene environment – and the dining area was a very elegant dining room with adjacent outdoor patio areas, bar and dance floor.
The venue is high quality with a classic style and requires very little to no additional decorating. They will do any tablecloth or centerpiece upgrades, etc, for you. They also coordinate with the florist so you really have no venue preparation work beforehand unless you are doing something highly customized.
The food was excellent and the portions were very generous which was a concern because you want guests to be happy and well fed. You do need to be aware that kids meals are not the same as adult meals, which seems obvious in retrospect. But, we didn’t understand that until after we sent out our invites with RSVP’s. I think it was an oversight on our part with so much going on. Luckily, the kids liked their meals.
There are two types of wedding venues: 1) Venues where you rent a space and then do everything else yourself, and 2) venues that are more turn-key.
Turn key places charge lower amounts for facilities but charge more for food and alcohol which you can’t get from a third party vendor. That’s the trade off. Prices around town just to rent a venue like the Julia Ideson Library for example are extremely high for what you get, so it made sense just to pick a good venue and have them do most of the work for us.
AG is turn key. I think it evened out with what we would have paid to do all the work ourselves, so that was a big plus that we got a high quality wedding without having to attend to all the details ourselves. Otherwise, you have to rent chairs and silverware and handle all the little details yourself. Since the food at the venue was excellent, it didn’t matter that we couldn’t have it catered. The wedding coordinator on the day of was a big help and kept us from having to do event management on the wedding day.
You will still have to hire a DJ, photographer, florist, minister and getaway driver, so there is still a lot of work to do for a wedding. All those people can coordinate pretty easily with the event planner, though. The wedding planner even took it on herself the day of to call the limo company that was picking us up and make sure it happened on time so the car was just waiting for us.
Also, if you have a served meal as opposed to buffet, you will need to do your own seating chart and name placards. You will also need to bring in your gift card holders and small details like that. Just be aware. You’ll likely have to do that anywhere, though.
It was a great experience getting married here.
