Beautiful venue, super professional

We can't say enough good things about these folks. From the very beginning, Gabrella Manor helped us attend to every detail, and when the COVID outbreak forced a delay in the proceedings, they patiently worked with us to make sure the final arrangements were just right. This is closest thing to a "one-stop" venue you could hope for - they handle wedding planning, venue decor, food, photography, flowers. All this was tailored to what we wanted. They also coordinated everything with other outside vendors we used (like the band and chauffeured limousine!). HIghest recommendations!

Great Venue !!

Gabrella Manor is such a beautiful venue. The venue does not require a lot of extra decorations to make it special. We worked with Brenda during the planning process, she helped us keep the budget as low as possible, but I as a bride was able to have everything I wanted for the special day. We had one real planning day and she handled it. I trusted her 23 years + experience. This was one of the major reasons we chose Gabrella Manor, is because I didn't have time to plan every detail.The venue handles the ceremony, food, decorations, and flowers. Steve Johnson is the photographer you can use through the venue, and he was wonderful to work with. So friendly and I was at ease with him the entire time. He knows this venue so well, and knows where and when to get the best pictures. Our pictures were so beautiful and vibrant! Our wedding guests all said what a wonderful time they had, plenty of food and drinks for all. Our day was very organized from start to finish, which for me, I liked because I didn't have to worry about what was happening and when. Thanks Brenda, Steve, Lori, and all the others who helped make our wedding day so perfect !!
