The perfect day
The Blue Heron caters in house which is nice just because you don't have to worry about another vendor. But the food is spectacular. I had a friend who texted me to ask what kind of chicken we served, because her husband had been pestering her for days to ask me because he loved it so much.
The venue does set up and tear down so you don't have to come in the morning of your wedding, and don't have to stay late that night. We dropped our centerpieces and decorations off the Thursday before and picked it all up a couple days later.
The Blue Heron is not the cheapest option in South Bend. But it is the best, and it was worth every dollar we spent there. And I highly suggest considering a Friday wedding. They are just as great, and much more cost effective.
Perfect for our wedding reception
Beautiful space & great food
