Incredible Staff and Beautiful Venue

My experience with Griffin Gate was wonderful. From the beginning their staff has always been very responsive and able to answer any of my questions. For the kind of venue that this is, I feel like they are fairly priced and they include a lot of incentives. Originally, we were only holding our reception at Griffin Gate, but about a month and a half out from our wedding we asked if we could have our reception there as well due to our church not being able to host the amount of guests that we had due to Covid. Griffin Gate was under fewer restrictions and allowed us to have our entire wedding at their venue. They made this process seamless.
One of my favorite things about the planning process with Griffin Gate is the tasting event that they hold. Their food is absolutely scrumptious and they have out a lot of examples for various reception items. The tasting was very helpful and reenergized me about our planning process.
Due to Covid there were some slight changes, but overall we were able to have the wedding that we wanted. Jenna and Paige were fantastic, and very helpful. Jenna almost always answered my emails very quickly and responded to everything that I touched upon in the emails. She made the last few weeks of planning very smooth, and always kept me in the loop. I would highly recommend this venue!

Incredible Experience

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!

Beautiful location

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!
