Beautiful Beautiful Beautiful
I recently coordinated a Vow Renewal at the Horton Grand Hotel! Jennifer was absolutely amazing, she is so kind, quick to respond, makes everything as easy as possible! The food was delicious, fresh, and well portioned! The venue itself was so beautiful that it did not take a lot to dress it up! My clients and myself LOVED our experience here and I can’t wait to recommended them for more weddings! Thank you Jennifer and your whole team!

Practically Perfect in Every Way
We chose this location because it reminded us of New Orleans Square in Disneyland and we were having a Disney themed wedding so it was at the top of our list. From our first communication with Jennifer, everything was a breeze. She was attentive and always had answers to our questions. There was a possibility of rain on our day but she eased our stress and had back up plans for any situation. She gave us the peace of mind we needed in a crazy time.
The venue is BEAUTIFUL and there are many great locations for photos! Guests are still complimenting the venue weeks later. The staff was SO FRIENDLY. Everyone greeted us with a smile and was helpful! The food and cocktails were DELICIOUS!
Our out-of-town guests felt at home and our in-town guests can't wait for an excuse to go back. The day was perfect and without this venue, Jennifer, and the rest of the staff that would not have been possible! We truly felt like Disney royalty!Sent on 04/24/2020

A Dream Come True
We had such a great wedding at the Horton Grand!!Sent on 11/02/2019
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.
The staff at the Horton Grand Hotel are by far the kindest people to work with! What an amazing venue for a wedding! It's charming and very grand, perfect for couples and their families. Gorgeous brick and traditional layout is lovely! Would recommend this venue for your wedding day!
