    Look no further! La Tourelle is the one!

    If you are looking for a venue, look no further than La Tourelle! The scene at La Tourelle was breathtaking; the newly renovated indoor banquet room and outdoor wedding ceremony and reception sites were equally stunning. Our guests mentioned this was the most beautiful wedding they have seen. There are numerous unique opportunities for bridal photos on their property. The rooms were pricey but worth it. They were spacious, clean, exclusive, and magical.
    Planning a wedding from afar, during a pandemic was very challenging, but Christina made the process as smooth as possible. I was not able to see the venue until 4 days prior to my wedding, but Christina sent videos and pictures to help me feel secure with my choices. She responded quickly to my messages and was in constant communication with us. The team at La Tourelle was thrown many daily curveballs from the government due to Covid-19 restrictions and they were able to problem solve and execute similar options in a timely fashion. Christina went above and beyond her responsibilities and our expectations to ensure we had an exquisite wedding weekend experience.
    In addition to the reception, we had a bridal breakfast the following morning. Christina had the banquet room set up lovely for our guests’ arrival, but since it was a gorgeous day outside, guests requested to sit outside. She was very flexible and quickly accommodated the change. Besides choosing my husband, picking La Tourelle and their team was the best decision I have made. We hope to return next summer for our first anniversary and enjoy a couple’s massage in their spa.

    We could not have asked for a better place than La Tourelle. They have so many amenities and some of the best staff we ever worked with. Everyone who went to our wedding could not stop raving about how accommodating they were. We were not from the area and they made it super easy to plan a wedding. The months leading up to our wedding they provided us with ample recommendations for vendors and timely responses to our inquiries.

    We had our dinner rehearsal right outside the yellow barn suite. They provided a wonderful ambiance with fire pit, tiki torches and smores as the evening grew dark and helped us clean up so it was presentable in the morning. We even were able to set up our decorations the day before because there were no other events in the reception hall that evening.

    In the morning I (bride) went to the August Moon Spa where I had my makeup done. Then all of the girls got ready in the yellow barn suite which has a master bedroom with a Jacuzzi, two loft bedrooms up a spiral staircase with a common bathroom downstairs near the common room. The suite had the rustic look we were going for so it was a great place for our photographer to come in and take pictures of us getting ready. There was plenty of room so we also had a hair dresser come in and set up in the common room.

    We had our ceremony right outside of the reception by the gazebo. We even had our dog in the room right next to the ceremony and reception so it was super easy for someone to take care of him! The appetizers and dinner were wonderful. We opted for the Viennese station in Lou of a traditional wedding cake (mainly because we are not big cake fans). Eileen, the catering manager, surprised us with a beautiful small white cake for us to cut! There was so much food we couldn't try everything but everyone we talked to said it was delicious.

    La Tourelle will forever have a special place in our hearts and what better place visit on for our anniversary!
