    Ancala Country Club is a must have wedding venue

    We chose this venue mostly because of the wedding coordinator Amy. She was very accommodating and always readily available to answer any questions you might have. Even during these crazy times she managed to help make our dream wedding come true. The venue is absolutely beautiful and all of our guests were taken aback by the view! The food is also delicious and our guests would not stop talking about it. We would recommend Ancala over and over again!

    Ancala Country Club's reply:

    Kayla & Cameron, thank you for trusting us to be a part of your special celebration. You are right it was crazy times but it was a love filled special day! It was a pleasure to work with you and your family.

    Beautiful venue and Amy is the absolute best!

    Our wedding was postponed due to Covid and Amy couldn't have been helpful and wonderful! The space is gorgeous and our guests are still raving about the food. Getting married with the views, the food, the ease and with Amy coordinating the day, it was truly the best day ever! I wouldn't look any further than Ancala!

    Ancala Country Club's reply:

    We finally got there Jen. It was a journey but we made it through to a beautiful, love filled evening! Thanks for hanging in there with me as I know it was not easy at times.
