    Wonderful Venue

    So happy we had our wedding at The Highlands. Here's why you might want to too:

    The Staff - From Day 1, I could count on reliable and helpful responses to all of my email communication. All of our in-person meetings in advance of the day were not only thorough and productive, but fun! Adam is a star and our bridal attendant Richard was ready the entire night for whatever we needed. The staff is all Culinary Institute trained, have been doing this for years, and it shows.

    Food - Generous and delicious. One of the couples who attended our reception go to 10+ weddings each year, and they commented that the food was the best they've had at a wedding. It was also really helpful to be able to sit down with the staff in advance and talk through our menu choices. Bonus points for the complimentary cheese board and champagne served in the bridal suite!

    Cost - We felt that the cost was incredibly reasonable and appreciated that everything comes included. Another local venue was charging a site fee which cost the same as our entire package at The Highlands. You get open bar + appetizer + dinner + CAKE + staff + the space and furniture and accents, all included.

    Convenience - Everything is onsite and taken care of.
    During the venue-hunting phase, I was in talks with another space which provided only the building + furniture. I would have had to hire a separate caterer, who required further alcohol fees and also encouraged renting an additional oven. With Highlands, you're dealing with one experienced team, with fully equipped facilities onsite.

    Opportunities for personalization and flexibility - Click through photos and you can see how versatile the place is. We really liked how the different spaces (ballroom, bar, solarium) flow together. Our wedding was on the small side, with 50 guests, so the team set up a lovely lounge area with plush furniture in front of the fireplace. The cubbies are a unique touch: we filled them with photo frame escort cards for the guests, but I've seen pictures of all different designs. And of course there are all different ways you might decorate the fireplace mantels, cocktail tables, and dining tables.

    And one last time, The Staff - I truly can't say enough good things about the team there. When my mom forgot to bring the corsages to the church, bridal attendant Richard drove a half hour to deliver them. (We didn't even ask, he saw they'd been left behind and was on his way). Then Richard also taught me a trick on how to hide tissues in your hand while carrying your bouquet. At the reception, the bartenders had orange juice on hand for the kids so they wouldn't feel left out, and served the orange juice in cups with lids. These small things make a huge difference, made the day run so smoothly. We didn't need to worry; they had everything taken care of.

    Amazing experience at the Highlands!

    We were married in 3/30/19 at the Highlands. If I could give 500 stars I would! Every single second of our day was amazing. It has been almost a month since the wedding and I have guests still telling me daily how amazing everything was. The venue staff, Adam and his team are incredibly meticulous. Every single detail was perfect. The food was amazing. The entire planning process was seamless. Adam was incredibly responsive to all my emails with numerous questions and offered suggestions wherever needed.
    We were able to fit all 136 guests in the main room which was very important to me. The dance floor is smaller this way but it didn’t impact the experience, if anything we felt it encouraged more dancing because the dance floor always looked packed! We also were able to fit a 7 piece band.
    Our ceremony was indoors in the solarium, which is just such a beautiful room. The sun was setting during the ceremony and the photos are amazing. There was access to the fire pits on both sides of the venue. I had guests spread throughout the venue the entire night. There was something for everyone; whether you wanted to be in the tavern having a drink, or sitting by a fire pit, they really enjoyed having these options as they were not limited to one space in the venue.
    Additionally, we were blessed with the most amazing bridal assistant, Richard. I’ve never met anyone more fabulous at their job. I didn’t know the extent to which the bridal assistant would be helping until the day of. He literally told me everything that was happening or going to be happening in real time, so I did not miss out on anything. He made sure we enjoyed our dinner and always had a drink in our hand. He managed our bridal party while we were on site and did everything from responding rapidly to our numerous requests for orange juice and champagne, driving us in the golf cart to take photos, fixing my cake topper when I was unhappy with how the flowers on cake were blocking it, to figuring out a French bustle, I cannot say enough thank yous for Richard !
    Everything was perfect! Do not hesitate booking your wedding at the highlands it is worth every penny!
