Debra and Marie at Arcadia are wonderful people and work so well with Brides to make their special day perfect! I am beyond pleased with everything and have zero regrets with the decision to have my wedding at Arcadia. Debra is great with getting thing together and making sure everything runs as smooth as possible. Marie is so friendly and puts so much hard work into making the grounds look fabulous. I cannot thank them enough!!Sent on 10/23/2017

I can’t speak highly enough about this venue. It was beautiful, needed no additional decor, the owner and wedding planner (Marie and Debra) are lovely. We worked with The Caterer and Jerry Houck. It was a one-stop experience. My daughter told him what she wanted and he made it happen, making the arrangements with the florist & bakery. Set-up, breakdown, decor & all details were taken care of, making for a stress-free night. Just an awesome experience.Sent on 10/20/2018

Maria, Debra, and Jerry were unbelievably helpful in making my dream wedding a reality! Any questions or concerns I had were tackled with ease, and they made me feel like any question or concern I had was never insignificant. The venue is gorgeous, and Maria made sure that the grounds were perfect for the day of the wedding. Our wedding had around 150 guests and they fit in the venue very comfortably. My husband and I were able to stay in the honeymoon sweet after the reception concluded, and that made life so much easier since we didn’t have to leave to go to a hotel. I would absolutely recommend this venue to anyone. The Arcadia team is the best!!Sent on 07/13/2018
