Ballyowen is breathtaking!

My now husband and I held our 10.22.23 wedding here. From the moment we took our tour with Julie in late fall 2022, we were determined to quickly book a fall 2023 wedding. The selling point was the gorgeous fall foliage and mountain views. The staff were all professional, responsive, and accommodating. Julie was our main contact for about six months and she was helpful and kind. Then we were connected with coordinator, Lee, who we cannot say enough nice things about. Lee was so responsive to all of our contacts and helped put our minds at ease. It's stressful planning a wedding and your mind is racing every second with details but it was comforting knowing that Lee and the Crystal Springs staff were quick to answer. Our food tasting also blew us away and we knew that the food would be excellent on the wedding day. Unsurprisingly, we received so many compliments on the setting and food from our guests! All of our items were set-up with care and the bridal suite was a blessing to have throughout the day and night to get ready in and store our belongings. We cannot forget to mention our maitre d' Nicole! Nicole was present throughout the wedding as needed and handled all the details and communication with the vendors to ensure that everything ran smoothly. She took us and our photographers and videographer out on the golf cart (in the freezing cold!) to help us capture our photos and even offered us hand warmers. Thank you, all, for an unforgettable wedding. :) Do not hesitate to book Ballyowen for any special event!

10/10 would recommend!

We got married at Ballyowen in October of 2023. We had such an amazing experience from start to finish! The day was everything we could have hoped for and more. The staff made us feel at ease and were such a big help that day. The venue was stunning and all of our guests raved about it. The hills and scenery around the golf course was so beautiful we had amazing pictures all day and during the ceremony. The food was great and guests even told us they had never eaten so much at a wedding before!

Ballyowen gave us our dream wedding!!

To say that Ballyowen Golf Club was the best decision my husband and I could have made is an understatement. We first met with Julie who took us on a tour. We already loved it from the moment we drove up the driveway, but working with Julie made us love it even more. She was so kind and quick to answer any questions we had. Julie also replied promptly to any email I sent. The communication was excellent!

6 months before our wedding date, Lee, our wedding coordinator reached out to us to schedule our food tasting and to answer any questions we had. The food was FANTASTIC and everyone was so nice.

Lee has been with us throughout the entire process and she was absolutely phenomenal to work with! She was so friendly and organized and we couldn't have asked for a better wedding coordinator!

On the day of, Lee made sure all of the decor was in place, the shuttles were good to go, and even fluffed my dress before I walked down the aisle. We seriously didn't have to worry about a thing because she took care of it all!

After the first look, Marc, our Maitre D', took us and our photographer around on a golf cart to take pictures. Marc was also such a pleasure to work with! He was there making sure we had everything we needed throughout the entire night. While my dress was getting bustled, he even brought me some food and a drink so I wouldn't miss anything.

Ballyowen took care of the food, the cake, the linens, and the decor, which we handed off to them. Not to mention the beautiful space that made our wedding look like it came straight out of a magazine.

Overall, our wedding was like a dream and that is all thanks to the team at Ballyowen. We seriously can't stop raving about the food, the atmosphere, and all of the people we had the pleasure of meeting. Thank you, Ballyowen, for our dream wedding!
