Wedding of our dreams
Gail and the entire staff at Avon Old Farms Hotel went over and above to make sure my husband and myself as well as our guests had an incredible experience from start to finish. We had our wedding rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception all on site and couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful or perfect time!!!!! We couldn’t be any happier with them!Sent on 08/24/2019

So Close to Perfect
My fiance and I toured this venue and we loved it. It had everything that we wanted and then some. It also helped that it was a hotel so it would have been very convenient to our guests. The only reason we had to turn it down was that we were concerned we would have filled it way past capacity. We highly recommend this venue though to people who have less than 150 guests!Sent on 06/11/2019

We had the pleasure of having my daughter’s wedding at Avon Old Farms Hotel in June. From our first encounter with Gail at a bridal show, to the night of the wedding, I have nothing but positive to say about our experience. Avon Old Farms Hotel is a magical venue and I cannot say enough about how great Gail is to work with. She goes above and beyond and gives great advice and guidance throughout the planning process. The space is so beautiful and accommodating – it can suit multiple styles of taste. It is really a classically elegant and beautiful venue. Being able to wrap up the evening and head to your hotel room was fantastic. Even some of our local guests booked a room after the reception. The room block rates were very competitive and fairly priced. The grounds outside were gorgeous to have the outdoor ceremony. There is a choice of a pergola covered in wisteria or a beautiful gazebo. Don’t worry if the weather doesn’t cooperate, the inside spaces for backup are beautiful for a Plan B. We were able to have our cocktail hour outside on their bluestone patio overlooking the grounds. The reception moved into the ballroom afterward a wonderful cocktail hour with plenty of passed hors d’oeuvre and fully stocked bar. We had to use both the ballroom and connecting glass room to accommodate the number of guests we had and the size of the dance floor that we wanted. I was worried that the guests in the glass room would feel excluded, but they really did not. There are huge French doors that open up between the spaces so it felt more like one space. We also had the bar outside all evening so people were mingling and walking between the ballroom and glass room all night. The food and drinks were fantastic. My daughter is vegan and my son in law is vegetarian and Avon Old Farms was able to accommodate multiple dinner selections and choices. We were able to give guests the option to choose between five dinner choices- we had beef, chicken, fish, vegetarian and vegan options. We were also able to have a nice mix of passed hors d’oeuvre that were vegan, vegetarian or had meat options and they were enjoyed by all. The sweet potato fritter and the mushroom with cream cheese cap were all of our favorites, but the rest selected were all fantastic. The dinner choices were amazing and all of our guests were very happy and satisfied with their dinner choices. The butternut squash lasagna was amazing but all their selections were delicious and their portion sizes was just right. The staff at the reception were fantastic, always available and willing to help. Leighton is the banquet manager and he made sure that everything went smoothly. He even helped with the bustle on my daughter’s dress at one point when we couldn’t figure it out. Lots of praise for Leighton and his crew. We decided to do a late night menu that we had in a private room outside of the bar. There is a room set up fee for this but it is so worth it. My only tip is to make sure you order enough because the kitchen closes as soon as those are out and there is no option to get more food added to the order. We could have probably used another pizza and order of wings with the appetites our guests had after all the dancing. Our guests absolutely loved the late night snacks of wings and pizza. It was a huge hit with our guests and the perfect ending to the night.Sent on 08/05/2019
