    An overall dream team

    I truly cannot say enough good things about my entire experience working with the team at DuPont Country Club and Brantwyn. Because of COVID, we had to switch venues barely six months ahead of our wedding date, and I will forever be thankful that those plans did change. Our first sales manager was wonderful—friendly, extremely responsive and helpful, and made sure to get all initial planning matters and meetings set as quickly as possible given how close to our wedding date we were—and then even after she switched to a different role a couple weeks after signing our contract and we started working with our new sales manager, the entire process was a breeze. Working with Kayla was an absolute delight. I had approximately a million questions, and she not only always had an answer, but answered all of them usually hours later. She kept me in the loop or notified me of upcoming meetings and items due, was incredibly kind, professional, and organized, and made the overall stress of planning a wedding infinitely easier. The day-of staff was no different. Pete was a delight. He kept the flow of the day moving exactly on schedule, from the rehearsal to the actual ceremony to the reception events. I DIYed the majority of my decor, and everything was set up clearly with care, and I truly couldn't have done a better job, which means a lot coming from someone who struggles with not being in control of certain things. We never had to worry about where we needed to be when because he always kept us in the loop and gave us warning times throughout the day, which was so nice not to have to worry about so me and my bridesmaids could just enjoy our morning getting ready. The serving staff was also extremely kind and professional. The food was delicious, the estate was beautiful, and I truly felt like the staff cared about me, my bridal party, and making sure I had the best day possible, which I absolutely did.

    Brantwyn Estate's reply:

    Cassy- Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a kind-hearted review! We are beyond thrilled that you had such a beautiful day and experience. Your Disney theme was swoon-worthy! It was an absolute pleasure working with such a loving couple and your families. I wish you and Connor a lifetime of married bliss!

    Supportive, flexible, and just all round amazing.

    We had our ceremony and reception at Brantwyn Estate on June 12, 2022 and there isn't a thing that we would have changed. Brantwyn is beautiful and the staff couldn't have been easier to work with. Kayla, Ashley, and Rebecca were responsive, flexible, and supportive through the entire process. As the day approached, the weather was predicted to be rainy and stormy. Our entire event was going to be outside. Kayla, Ashley and Rebecca helped us create a rain plan that worked for everyone and were very receptive to our nontraditional ideas! Luckily, the weather turned out to be perfect. It rained in the morning but we were determined to have our ceremony outside. They were more than understanding and did everything they could to make that happen. The process was made so easy by the Brantwyn team that we did not have any wedding day anxiety that things were going to go wrong. Kayla, Ashley, Rebecca and the rest of the staff at Brantwyn were incredible, we couldn't have asked for a better wedding day. We would recommend Brantwyn Estate to every couple looking for a beautiful and worry free wedding.

    Brantwyn Estate's reply:

    Jennifer- It was truly a pleasure getting the chance to work with you and your beautiful family! Your original ideas really came to life and made the day a unique and fun experience for all of your guests, especially the children. We cannot wait to see the final photo album! Rebecca, Ashley, and I wish you many years of infinite happiness and love!
