The team at the Griffin Gate worked tirelessly to make sure my husband and I's wedding weekend a huge success! From our first visit with Jenna, through every site meeting with Morgan, we could not have asked for better service. They helped us make our rehearsal dinner at the mansion and our classic brunch wedding the perfect time for us, our family and our friends. I could not recommend another venue more!Sent on 07/05/2019

The place was beautiful! And they had serval locations to accommodate guest sizes etc. We couldn't use them because the cost was a little over our budget but I highly recommend!Sent on 02/01/2019

We had our ceremony on the Bluegrass Pavilion patio and reception in the Bluegrass Pavilion (tent.) Words can not describe how beautiful it was and what a great job the staff at the Marriott did. We had perfect weather and my event coordinator, Leigh Dalton, helped to make a day/night that we will never forget! Our rooms were top notch and so were the guests and they helped coordinate everything we asked from the day before the ceremony through the weekend. I was worried that the tent would look like a tent - but WOW! - we were blown away at home beautiful they made it. There wasn't a thing that went wrong that day. They paid special attention to ALL the fine details and took away all the worry on our ends. We made a weekend of it with friends and played golf the next day! The golf shop and manager, Colin Gooch, was awesome and went out of their way to accommodate our needs and make us feel very special. The Marriott was well priced, compared to a lot of other venue sites, and really worked to help us with the budget we wanted to stay in. Leigh worked tirelessly from start to finish (time we signed with them to day of wedding and after) to ensure our day was magical - and it WAS!!!!! I am truly grateful to everyone at the Griffin Gate for making our wedding day so darn terrific and we will NEVER forget this day/weekend! AMG-SSent on 09/20/2017
