    A Dream Come True

    We had such a great wedding at the Horton Grand!!

    The venue is beautiful. It looks great in pictures and even better in person. We got so many compliments on the venue on our wedding night. It doesn't need much in terms of decoration. The layout is great. The courtyard is beautiful and we had both our ceremony and reception there. The cocktail hour in the alley way was perfect. There's quite a few spots for pictures.

    The food received great reviews from the guests. We chose prime rib, chicken, and a veggie pasta. We hired an extra bartender and that kept the lines short and drinks flowing for our 130 guests. The venue size was perfect for the amount of people we had.

    We had a lot of out-of-towners and I loved that it's only 4 miles from the airport and walking distance to everything. We liked that no one had to rent a car. We had a get-together night at Half Door Brewing and our rehearsal dinner at Union Tap & Kitchen, both walking distance. There's a discount to stay at the Horton Grand and the rooms have so much charm. It's also close to every hotel chain for people with rewards.

    Price was in line with everything else we looked at. We liked that there were no upcharges for chairs, linens, lighting, and all that. Everything is included in their packages that you would expect from a venue in terms of tables/chairs/linens/lights/food/bar/meal tasting/setup/takedown/etc. They even comp you a room on the wedding night. The only add-on we did was an extra bartender. We also appreciated that there are ballrooms as back ups in case of rain, which we did not have to use. Vendor-wise we brought in a florist, dj, photographer, day of planner, and photobooth.

    Communication with Jennifer was excellent and she was very responsive to our many (and probably repeat) questions in the past year. I cannot recommend her enough. She was a true pleasure to work with.

    All in all, the best compliment I can give it is that I wouldn't change a thing about our wedding at the Horton Grand. We spent so much time planning and preparing and stressing over it, but our wedding night was the best night of our lives. It was worth every penny.
