    Amazing amazing wedding at Le Chateau

    We want to thank Le Chateau for helping us celebrate an amazing wedding. The food, service, experience, staff and the venue itself were all out of this world. The staff was extremely attentive to anything we needed. The venue is one of the most gorgeous places we have ever seen and the food was to die for. Sarah, Tori, Debbi and Christine all personally made the day go so smoothly and we are so grateful we chose Le Chateau as our venue. I cannot say enough good things about this venue and highly recommend booking your wedding there!

    Spectacular... Truly a venue of dreams

    Every part of holding our wedding at Le Chateau was a dream. From the sweet and overwhelmingly accommodating staff, to the absolutely delectable food, to the sheer beauty of the venue itself, I cannot give more praise nor a higher recommendation.
    Their gardens are quaint and perfectly manicured, their ballroom spectacular and their upstairs (complete with bridal suite, groom's room and family room) spacious and comfortable... And despite all of it being perfect in appearance, it simultaneously somehow feels like home.
    Review part II!
    Basically, I just can't say enough about how remarkably amazing they are and realized I barely touched on the lengths the staff went to to cater to every detail, which certainly included a myriad- from food, to decorations and favors to rescheduling a multitude of times due to COVID and THEN bending over backwards to make sure safety and protocols were implemented with ease.
    We were introduced to the venue by Sarah, who not only gave us an extensive tour of the grounds, but who took an incredible amount of hours to make sure we were informed and always shared in a laugh. The minute we stepped foot on the front steps, we knew we had found the one.
    Then there was sweet, sweet Tori, who again, took so many hours to promptly answer emails on every topic and minute point under the sun. Gracious and fun, she ensured everything was, again, there's no other way to describe it, perfect.
    And then Debbie, with kindness, supportiveness and unparalleled professionalism (and amazing bridal attendant, Jill!) lead the most SPECTACULAR day.
    And the chefs! How do I begin to thank them for every morsel being magnificent and beyond memorable?

    The most gratitude, Le Chateau! We can't rave enough!

    The wedding of our dreams!

    My husband and I first toured Le Chateau in January 2019, and 2.5 years and one postponement later, it was well worth the wait to finally have our wedding reception at this magical venue in July 2021! From the moment I walked into the ballroom, my breath was taken away and I knew that this would be the place where we would have our wedding. The team at Le Chateau is extremely professional and we felt as though we really got to know the staff over the course of our long journey. There were many ups and downs due to the unprecedented challenges of COVID, but Sarah stuck by our side through it all and ensured us that everything would work out. Tori, Debbie, Nellie and my bridal attendant, Jill, were all excellent in the months and weeks leading up to the wedding and the day-of (special shout-out to Jill who helped to bustle my dress, and made sure I was fed and taken care of all night long!). When I say that our guests have told us this was the "best wedding they have ever attended", I am not exaggerating! Almost a month later and we are still getting compliments about the excellent food, gorgeous space and awesome party. Every single detail was perfect and I could not have imagined a more flawless, beautiful day. Having your wedding at Le Chateau is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you should 100% take if you have the chance!
