"I'm not sure how to put into words how lucky I feel to have stumbled upon this beautiful property. This is the only venue we checked out, we didn't need to see anything else. My husband and I were married here on 9/26/15 and we spent the weekend here. Denise and her team are absolutely amazing. Denise was always quick to respond, incredibly personable, and never made me feel like a burden. Julie was incredibly attentive and made sure everything looked great every day. Julie met us at the castle when we went to check it out and between her and the setting we were blown away. Their helpers for the day of along with DJ Steve, Kurt, and Faulkner's Catering (what I saw as the Inner Circle team) all came together and helped us make the day better than I could have ever imagined.
The home is beautiful inside and made a gorgeous backdrop for the rehearsal, rehearsal meal, getting ready the day of, and reflecting on the wedding on Sunday morning. I woke up Saturday morning with my team of girls and walked the property to 'visit' the horses up front and the goats and chickens and Mr. Pea in the back all while enjoying a hot cup of coffee.
The pool was great and the hot tub was even better. I'm pretty sure we were up until 5am the night of the wedding just relaxing with drinks and the few leftover guests we allowed to stay and relax with us. Julie keeps it extremely clean and the temperature was perfect. She was a silent helper as we didn't even realize she was there to turn on the hot tub and turn it off.
Denise, Julie, and their helpers were awesome at helping us set everything up on Saturday. I set up one table with a centerpiece and they put out the rest and it looked perfect. They made sure all candles and LED lights were lit once it started to get dark out and helped to clean them all up at the end of the night. They helped keep the day running smoothly and without a hitch! At least none that I was aware of.
My guests were all impressed and in awe. The girls in the bridal party and the hairdressers loved the opportunity to stay in the castle and get ready there.
We hate to admit that it's all over, and I think that's the reason for delay in my review. I hope we get the opportunity to return soon. I know some of my family is excited to return and spend some time there with us as well.
The short of it? Fairy-tale setting, gorgeous photos, incredible atmosphere, amazing down to earth staff... 10/10 I'd do it all over again."
