Our wedding was magical thanks to Janell, and her staff! Everything was perfect, and I could never thank Janell enough for making our day so special. The food was absolutely amazing, and everything down to the smallest details were taken care of. I would definitely recommend The Orchards Hotel if you are looking for a venue who has incredible staff, amazing food, and an overall flawless experience. Thank you again Janell for everything : ) Oh and the Cannolis were amazing!!!

Janelle at the Orchards was the greatest person to work with! She made it so there was no stress added and had everything all covered! I could have asked for a better planner and venue for my daughters wedding! Would recommend this venue to anyone!
