Start to finish, Planterra took care of *everything* with an incredible level of precision and care. This review could be 10 pages long, I swear. David, Anne, Megan, and Tiffany were all wonderful. David was SO helpful in recommending things to us when we asked questions. "Don't worry about that. Definitely skip that. Absolutely you can do that. WE can make that happen." It was such a relief to have him. It felt like having a wedding planner included! They were very open to all of our ideas and I don't think they ever said "no" to anything. (Not that we had any wild requests). They proposed a schedule for us and handled all of the timing and coordination. Have I mentioned what a RELIEF it was to have someone else handling all of this for us?! Seriously.
Everything was perfect. Even more perfect than I imagined. It looked BEAUTIFUL. We got to have input every step of the way. The floral and linen sample really helped me to envision the day (although again, day-of was above and beyond anything I imagined). The staff is incredibly professional and on top of things; we hired Tiffany as a day-of coordinator instead of just the ceremony, and I can't recommend her enough. I honestly don't know how anyone does this without a day-of coordinator. She made sure everything went perfectly and everyone (including me!) knew where to be when, what was happening next, and kept checking in with me to see if I needed anything (including champagne!) Planterra did all of the setup and takedown, including folding place cards and assembling (and disassembling) a copper sign holder I purchased from Etsy. They gifted us a bottle of champagne in congratulations. They made our signature cocktail perfectly. They were very gracious in working with us to craft a perfect vegan menu, and guests LOVED it. Even my hardcore carnivore friends were – and I quote – "absolutely blown away" by the food.
We honestly didn't even look at other venues. Once we discovered Planterra, we couldn't settle; and I am so glad we didn't. So many guests told me it was the best/prettiest wedding they had ever been to (me too, haha!) Planterra is absolutely full-service and there were so many things we didn't have to worry about because of that. They made sure we ate (something that I've heard is challenging for a bride and groom) and explicitly carved out time for the two of us to enjoy being married before heading out to the party; bringing the two of us hors d'oeuvres and champagne in the back room while we basked in the glow of being newlyweds. When I (not really jokingly) said I wanted a piece of all 3 cake flavors, they wrote it down and made it happen. I came back to my seat at the head table to three slices of cake! And they delivered the late night snack to us, too! They really took great care of us. I know this cliché has been said, but...you *do* get what you pay for. It was absolutely worth every penny. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding and we are SO SO glad we chose Planterra for our venue (but its really so much more than a venue).
(We don't have our wedding photos back yet, so I can only include a tiny sample of their work, which doesn't do it justice. If I can add more photos later, I will.)Sent on 10/11/2019

A dream come true, they make your visions into a reality and do all of the work so you can entirely enjoy your day without one worry or concern!
Our wedding day was everything we could have hoped for and more! Not only is the venue gorgeous, the entire Planterra team was amazing! They are attentive, accommodating and truly focus on what you want for your day. They keep you on schedule and guide you along in the entire wedding planning process, it was such a relief to know I wasn’t missing anything and there wouldn't be anything forgotten! Our day was flawless and we could never thank them enough! They are excellent at what they do and will honestly give you the BEST wedding experience possible!Sent on 11/25/2019

Dream Venue Straight Out Of Fairytale
Having our wedding at Planterra was the best decision we made. My husband and I were planning from Chicago and were nervous about how we'd pull everything off without a planner. Once we found Planterra and realized the team would handle everything from the ground up, we knew this was the place for us. Walking into the venue for the first time truly took my breath away.
David and his team executed our vision in the most effortless way. The team was organized, proactive, communicative and extremely buttoned up with every single detail. As a type-A bride, I had not one worry in the world when working with this team. Our wedding was straight out of a fairytale and I can't tell you the amount compliments I received from guests. Friends said even they were getting tons of questions from THEIR friends on social media asking about this insanely beautiful venue!
If Planterra is a contender on your list, I urge you more to move it straight to number one. I promise, you won't regret it.Sent on 12/09/2019
