    Book Chauncey for your wedding!

    Chauncey Hotel and Conference Center is the perfect place for a wedding! The grounds are absolutely beautiful, and the tent is the perfect place for a reception. Having everything, including the hotel, on site made everything easy for our guests. The food was outstanding and the staff were very professional, kind, and accommodating. Amanda was the best coordinator - answering all of our (probably) annoying questions and easing our nerves throughout all of our planning. We cannot say enough great things about her. Lastly, we highly recommend booking the Laurie House for your wedding. It’s the perfect place for the bride and groom, as well as the bridal party or close friends to stay. Definitely worth every penny! Overall, we are so happy that we had our wedding at Chauncey - it was absolutely perfect.

    Recent Bride - Zaina B.

    I looked at 12 venues before deciding to look at the Chauncey Hotel and Laurie House and it was the only venue my fiancé (now husband) came with me to tour. He absolutely fell in love with the grounds (especially the fact that he could go for a run the morning of our wedding) and I knew right away that it was going to be perfect for us. Amanda was incredible from that day in January of 2021 all the way through to the wedding day. She was very attentive and understood our vision for the day. She accommodated all my very specific details I wanted incorporated and honestly executed them better than I could’ve imagined. We did work with Larissa as well when Amanda was on maternity leave who was great too! I was very big on communication and organization which I think helped the days run smoothly. I highly recommend renting out the Laurie House for the bridal party. All the bridesmaids/maids of honor stayed in the Laurie house and we still had plenty of room! The guys got ready in the downstairs gentlemen’s lounge and the women got ready in the room right off the kitchen. It was plenty spacious for 12 women plus 2 hair and makeup people. Since we had the Laurie House, we did the rehearsal dinner on the patio the night before the wedding. We did the barbecue package with three hour open beer and wine bar and the food was crazy delicious. They are so attentive and really make everything so easy. The day of the wedding was awesome. They had a carafe of coffee delivered to the Laurie House as well as lunch for the girls. Larissa and her team were on top of everything. The entire day was truly incredible. We made it a point to go to cocktail hour and eat all the food possible. Let me say the food was to die for. HIGHLY recommend the mac and cheese station! Everyone raved about the food! We lucked out with the perfect day for weather so everything outdoors was perfect. Dinner was fantastic as well! My husband and I got the beef and we are still talking about it. We had our own private waitress Nadine who was so sweet! They even had a plate of the cocktail hour appetizers ready for us! The day and night were incredible. Amanda and her team were great to work with. The location was perfect and I really can’t say enough good things about having a wedding at the Chauncey Hotel and Laurie House.
