Outside of each other.. Hands down the best decision we made throughout the process!
I was the groom in our wedding, and I can't tell you how thankful I am that we chose Blue Bridge as our venue. One thing you'll see right away if you visit is that the space is definitely unique, in a special way. We, and our guests, absolutely loved having both the indoor and outdoor settings. Not everyone loves to dance, and the setup allows for each person to find space to enjoy themselves the entire evening. You won't need much convincing on the venue part of your decision. Something you won't be able to understand until you make the commitment is the service side of the experience. I'm sure everyone that works here is great, but if you're lucky enough to get Polly and Chris handling your big day, then I promise you're in great hands. Super responsive whenever you need them. They keep you on track and help provide crucial feedback while you and your spouse go down the long path of planning a wedding. They're extremely knowledgeable of local vendors and never steered us wrong. They take your day personally and we really felt like they shared our enthusiasm, calmed our worries, and fed off our excitement throughout the process. I suggest anyone reading this review to highly consider Blue Bridge. Top-notch organization that makes it personal from start to finish. We can't thank them enough for helping us tie the knot. (Pricing is super competitive for everything you get too). If you're looking for an easy end to the night, definitely consider staying in one of their onsite locations. We were so drained by the time the lights came on. being able to take a short walk to a private spot on the property was a great way to end the evening.

I'll never stop raving about this venue - start to finish...amazing!
THE BEGINNING: When I found Bluebridge online, I reached out and received a lightning fast response from Polly (this communication style continued throughout the planning process). I was eager to lock down the venue so she accommodated our schedules and met us the next morning at 7am, with coffee ready! As soon as we entered the venue and met Polly it was a done deal. Polly and Chris were welcoming, genuine, warm, and sincerely happy to be a part of our day. This was such a refreshing change from the other transactional exchanges we had previously experienced within the industry. We didn't budget for a wedding planner, so when we found that a day-of coordinator comes with the package at Bluebridge, we were thrilled. We quickly found that Polly was so much more than a day-of coordinator.
THE PLANNING: Through our year and a half long engagement, Polly patiently and promptly answered all my questions. She welcomed creativity and was open to trying some new/unique things at the venue. She also kept us on track with gentle reminders, which we really appreciated. She allowed us to visit the venue as needed (we were planning from down-state 3 hours away) which was very helpful through the planning process.
THE WEEK OF: Polly checked in with each of our vendors to introduce herself and go over details. All of our vendors (before even meeting her in person) shared how professional and kind she was over the phone. She then met with us at the beginning of the week to review all plans, talk through any last minute details or questions. It was my fiance's birthday that day and she even made him a sign (trust me this woman does not have free time, but she makes it all happen!) She allowed my parents to join us so that they felt included and prepared. After our meeting, she made it clear that she had everything under control and that I should just enjoy. This was such a good way to spend the days leading up to our wedding. By the time our weekend arrived, I felt like I could truly be present and not worry about any of the details of the day.
REHEARSAL: Despite our huge and rowdy wedding party, the rehearsal was smooth and organized. Polly was engaged with everyone and even made it fun and painless for the kids involved in our ceremony.
WEDDING DAY: Polly and Chris showed every vendor, family member, friend, and even my pup Lumi SO MUCH LOVE AND KINDNESS. Through juggling many things, Polly keeps a calm and collected demeanor. If anything went wrong, we had absolutely no idea that it did. One hiccup that was brought to our attention on the amount of alcohol left, was quickly attended to and corrected. Our day was amazing because we could just bask in all the love, food, and entertainment in a perfect atmosphere designed by Bluebridge.
Brides/Grooms to be: I cannot recommend this place more. Especially if you're serious about being able to be present for your day together - they will take good care of you! Good luck :)Sent on 10/25/2019
