Amazing Venue

I got married here back in October of this year and the venue was everything and more. The coordinator Morgan helped bring all my visions to life. The staff was professional and very punctual. I loved the different packages this venue offered and how inclusive it is. That is an attribute that is extremely hard to find in a wedding venue.

A must-book venue for a celebration of any size!

My husband and I got married here in October 2023 and the ambiance, service, and food quality is truly unmatched. We wanted an intimate elopement on a weekday with just our immediate family present (fewer than 10 people) and signed the venue purely off a virtual tour as we live out of state. Because of the elopement package, I was able to be my own planner to curate all the details I thought about which I loved. Morgan was an absolutely incredible thought partner through out my 10 month planning journey and was a fantastic day-of coordinator to ensure every detail went off without a hitch. Every question I had was answered promptly, all the preferred vendors we booked were fantastic, and the cocktail hour bites + cake were delicious with rave reviews from all our guests. The entire staff during rehearsal and our wedding day were incredibly kind, thoughtful, and helpful which made the day even more memorable.

Our wedding felt like a dream thanks to the entire team at Castle Laydhawke and I cannot overstate how highly I recommend this venue.

Magical and Effortless!

Morgan and Castle Ladyhawke are amazing! We did their "effortless elopement" package and it truly was effortless. Morgan went above and beyond. One of our guests was supposed to tie the groom's bow tie and they got stuck in traffic. Morgan, along with our guests, jumped into action and figured out how to tie it. As I was getting ready to head down the stairs for our ceremony, Morgan touched my shoulder and said "I know I told you before but you look beautiful. Talk about a great calming boost on my way down to the ceremony! Then when it was time to cut the cake, we had no idea how to cut it and not make a mess of the cake. Morgan walked us through the process and we had a flawless cake cutting! Morgan and the rest of the Castle Ladyhawke team helped make our day truly magical and unforgettable. Thank you Morgan!
