Laura is amazing
Everything i could have asked for and more!
I enjoyed working with Laura Baker and the other Castle Manor staff so much along the way. They make the planning process so painless, make you feel right at home, and are extremely dedicated to making sure that your wedding is everything you envisioned!
The venue is perfect, as the Castle Manor was once a large victorian home and has such a lovely rustic-elegance type charm that in my opinion provides the perfect ambiance for a wedding.
There are plenty of rooms on-site for your guests to stay over, beautiful grounds for photo-ops, cocktail hour, outdoor ceremony, etc, and there's a beautiful back deck area that has views of the river and is beautifully lit up at night, really creating a special environment for an evening reception.
This location also takes the worry out of having to find a caterer. They have a wonderful Chef and waitstaff. All the guests I spoke to said their meals were absolutely delicious.
All of the Castle Manor staff were extremely flexible and accommodating with all of our requests. They truly are committed to making sure that your wedding turns out to be everything you dreamed it would be. I cannot thank them enough for everything!
My husband and I couldn't be happier with how our wedding weekend turned out, and would not hesitate for a second to recommend it to other engaged couples looking for a wedding venue.
