We were the very first wedding to be held at the Eisendrath House, but cannot endorse it as it is not a feasible wedding or event venue.Sent on 02/27/2017
Kim Knotter with the Eisendrath House was very helpful and very responsive throughout the planning process - that is, up until the day before the wedding when she started bringing up new "regulations" and citing rules that she had not mentioned in the previous three meetings we had with her. Nor were any of these new rules or regulations in the contract that we signed.
Additionally, most of our plans had to change the week leading up to the wedding due to rain in the forecast. There are many rules that go into tenting near a historic building that were not initially considered, nor were we informed of when deciding to have our wedding at Eisendrath. The tent we were able to setup could fit 90 people, despite the fact we had 103 guests. The tents could not be setup at the venue until after the rain had started and the entire north terrace where the ceremony and reception took place was a muddy, puddled mess.
So please imagine this. You know it is going to rain on your wedding day so you make all the changes you can to make sure you have the best possible setup for your special day. When you get there, the entire reception area is muddy and your guests are standing in mud puddles and their chairs are digging into the muddy ground. The bottom of the bride's dress and shoes are covered in mud, both completely ruined. The bottoms of all of the guests shoes are covered in mud too. There are no mats to wipe your feet so muddy footprints are drug throughout the concrete floors of the house, which the only place the guests can comfortably be. Then, after the wedding, you are blamed for the muddy footprints despite the fact there was nothing we could have done to prevent them.
The venue and the staff are incapable holding an event anywhere near 100 people, and there is no feasible alternative to deal with the rain.
