    Philander is so beautiful

    Our wedding was PERFECT! The staff was amazing and Leigh is incredible. She responds to you with any questions you have so quickly and is there for you the entire way throughout the planning process. She felt more like a friend than a wedding event manager. The staff member assigned to me was great and she brought me up two rounds of appetizers while I was stuck getting my bustle done for a half hour and even offered to try and help! Also they were really good with my request to not allow the line for alcohol to get long! They started to usher around beers to get the line down! It made all the difference. The only negative I would say is that at the tasting you only get the taste the options you choose, but I must admit all the food was amazing and everyone raved about our food at the wedding! The pairing appetizers are so cool and were a HUGE hit! The venue is so beautiful and so unique. There are so many picture spots that you don't have to go far for pictures. And the Washington memorial chapel is right around the corner! Look it up its gorgeous and that is where we had our ceremony! Basically I am obsessed with Philander and I wish I could live my wedding day all over again!

    Best Day Ever!

    We had our wedding at Philander Chase Knox on 9/7/19 and couldn’t be happier! The venue was absolutely gorgeous, the staff was amazing, and all our guests were raving about the food! (Seriously- the food was SOO good!!) Leigh was so great! She could not have been more accommodating and helpful throughout the entire planning process, especially with us planning the wedding from Denver! Our day-of coordinator, Luke, was also amazing! He was so helpful and made the whole day go perfectly smooth! Thank you all! It really was our dream wedding!!
