    Absolutely astounding service! Everyone made us feel so welcome & special!

    Outstanding service! Our event planner Abby was the sweetest most accommodating person ever. If we hit a road block, she still went out of her way to make it happen. The venue itself was so beautiful and the food was more than a meal it was an experience. Spectacular is all I can say!

We were blown away to say the least, everyone was so professional and accommodating, the day of the wedding was gorgeous and the food was out of this world!! The guests thought the night was magical and so did we!

    Chelsea Dentlar of the Planters Inn was a dream, delight to work with and her execution of all matters from day 1 to the wedding day was superb. Her suggestions of Tiger Lilly (Gayla) and Eventhaus (Eniky) were perfect. Our experience with The Planters Inn from service to the courtyard and garden room to the menu coming alive throughout the afternoon and evrning, could not have been better. We couldn't be more pleased or thankful.
