My now husband, wanted to have a fairy tale wedding. So what better place than a castle would fulfill his dream! We found Henderson Castle on a Google search and instantly fell in love. From our first contact with the Henderson staff until the moment we left the venue we were treated with the most respect, given exactly what we requested, and were shown exceptional customer service. We truly could not be happier with how our wedding day turned out. The character of the castle was beautiful day and night. The rooms that were offered to our guests were detailed with original artwork, woodwork, and incredible furnishings. The detail of the castle is like nothing we had ever seen before. Especially a place that allows guests to see, touch, and use the beautiful pieces. Our guests were truly surprised by how unique the place is. Within the castle there are many unique pictures, pieces of furniture, cool bathrooms, and even pianos, but the part that meant the most to us were the people/staff that took such good care of us and our guests. The castle wedding coordinator was so responsive to our emails and phone calls. She truly made our day come together and gave us everything we asked for and even more. The chefs and wait staff were so incredible throughout the night! The food was absolutely delicious, great presentation and great flavor. Our chef even made us a tray full of chocolates and joined us for a quick dance on the dance floor! These are memories we will never forget! The next day the exceptional castle experience continued. We had a wonderful brunch and later had a couple's massage. All of our guests couldn't be happier with their experience at Henderson Castle and we feel the same about our entire experience with Henderson Castle. We can truly say that our day was perfect!

I absolutely loved Cortnee and the castle! I really enjoyed my wedding, and I was able to due to the minor details being taken care of for me. The available packages gave me everything I needed for a great deal. I'd absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for a beautiful venue with everything you need in one location. I honestly can't thank the castle enough for all the hard work they did to make my day special.Sent on 06/22/2018
