My wife Sofia and I had the wedding of our dreams at Hawkesdene. We found the venue on VRBO.com and thought there was no way it could be this beautiful -- upon visiting, we found that the pictures in fact did not do justice to just how outstanding it is. Beyond the five-star quality facilities (and large natural estate with river, mountain, and animals), the hotel-grade staff and service greatly exceeded our expectations. We had the fortune that the owners Rob and Phil were on-site during our wedding. They are smart, supportive, and incredibly kind.

Before the wedding, we spent a few days at the Hawkesview cottages, located just off the main site. This was brilliant because the cottages are luxurious (as are all other Hawkesdene accommodations) and we had wonderful family time. For the wedding itself, we had two ceremonies (American and Pakistani), both of which were fairytale-like. Our wedding ceremony itself was by the covered bridge with the soothing sound of the river. Incredible venue.

We were blown away by the food. Hawkesdene has a chef on-site, Matthew, who is excellent. They worked with us to design a menu for every meal that took account of the many activities we had planned every day (whitewater rafting, hiking on the estate, dance practice). The dinners were outstanding, including the Indian food. We also had signature cocktails made by the bartenders and they turned out excellent.

There were two suggestions that we thought could improve the experience further. First, it surprised us that recycling was not available in the area. We believe that Hawkesdene is capable of making recycling happen for the Andrews community. Second, internet connectivity could use improvement (i.e. coverage and bandwidth).

Overall, we are humbled and grateful to have gathered our loved ones at Hawkesdene for this very special weekend. Thank you Phil and Rob for creating such a wonderful venue. We are already talking about coming back for a reunion in the future.
