    Blissful Hill was beyond Accommodating!

    Our wedding was originally scheduled in May 2020 and we postponed to March 2021 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Katrina, Kara, and their team took care of us so well! I cannot recommend them enough!

    We originally were planning to invite 200 people, to have a 90 person rehearsal dinner, and to stay in the cabins with our wedding party for the weekend. Unfortunately, COVID royally screwed our plans. Blissful Hill worked with us and allowed us to move our date, no fees attached. We reduced our wedding size down to 40 people and to reduce exposure, we decided to skip the rehearsal dinner and to not stay at the venue for the weekend. We were extremely sad to have to change our plan and fully expected that a reduction in service would mean that Blissful Hill might not want to work with us. We came to them at the end of 2020 and let them know of our revised plan. They exceeded our expectations and were completely willing to accommodate our new plan. I truly could not believe it after hearing so many horror stories from other brides who weren’t allowed to change their date, or had to pay a costly fee to change their date, and who could not make any revisions to their original plan. I was so absolutely grateful that Blissful Hill worked with us every step of the way to help give us the best possible wedding under the circumstances. If COVID were not enough, it rained ALL DAY on our wedding day and we had originally planned to keep everything outside. I literally made the decision to bring it all inside a couple of hours before ceremony start, they were so flexible and were able to get everything moved to be indoors! Luckily, however, the rain cleared just enough for us to have a beautiful ceremony outside still!

    Originally, we selected their venue because of the seamless experience their all-inclusive venue could provide. As busy, young professionals, my husband and I really did not have a lot of time to devote to planning details and doing DYI crafts to plan our wedding. I had some vision in my head, but really was not set on any specific details. I gave Kara my Pinterest board and we had a couple of meetings to discuss some of the smaller details and I told her that I trusted her to take it from there. She and her team delivered the most dreamy, beautiful wedding day!! I think one of my favorite things that really set our wedding apart from the others was when, as the bride, I was escorted down to the ceremony site in a neat old vintage car. So cool!

    For those who are wondering what is and is not included, here is my list. Included in the “Dress and We do the Rest”: venue, tables, chairs, flowers, bouquets/boutonnieres for up to 6 bridesmaids/groomsmen, centerpieces, food/serving staff (a choice of BBQ, Pasta, or Fajitas – we chose fajitas and many of our guests came to us after the wedding to let us know how much they enjoyed the food!), cake/cake cutting (Michelle’s Patisserie – absolutely fabulous cake!), DJ (we hired a live stream service who also DJ’d for us, but there is a DJ available included in the package), bartender and bar supplies, photography, 4 cottages that sleep up to 18 people for the whole weekend. Not Included (things I purchased): hair/makeup, bridesmaid robes, glowsticks for dance party, sparklers for send off, Save the Dates/Invitations and postage, bridesmaid bouquet ribbons, bouquets/boutonnieres for bridesmaids/groomsmen over 6, snacks/drinks for getting ready the day of, guestbook or other item for guest signing, alcohol, cups/napkins and ice for the bar. Other add-ons the venue can provide for an additional charge – food for each guest over 150, there are some various food and snack add-ons for the day of that you can select, they can host and provide a rehearsal dinner the Friday before for an additional cost per guest, there are additional cottages on the premises that can sleep up to 26 more guests. Note that the “Big House” has to be booked via VRBO, but the other cottages Blissful Hill can book for you, as long as they have not already been booked by someone else (these cottages are open to the public).

    Thank you so much to Blissful Hill for an absolutely amazing day!

    Blissful Hill's reply:
