Magical Wedding!

On July 24, 2021 we were finally able to hold the wedding celebration my daughter and son-in-law had dreamed about since April 2019. Philander Chase Knox Estate, Robert Ryan's romantically scenic venue was the setting for a most magical night. Expertly led by our Day-of-Coordinator, Marjorie, and assisted by Day-of-Coordinator Trainee, Jalissa, and a team of servers, the entire celebration ran smoothly and exceeded our expectations. Marjorie's calm and efficient manner allowed us to enjoy the day from beginning to end. Both she and Jalissa were attentive, but unobtrusive. They were patient, fun, and so sweet! The servers, bartenders, and valets were pleasant and attended to anything our guests might need. The food was delicious, plentiful, and beautifully presented by the talented chef and assistants. Compliments from our guests abounded! Special thanks to Leah, our first contact at PCK and our dedicated guide throughout the planning of our wedding and reception, which included two postponements and a small family wedding at the venue in August 2020. She was always kind, professional, responsive and handled our requests with ease. We knew we were in good hands from the moment we met her! Many thanks to the entire team for a most memorable wedding celebration. We are truly grateful!

The Most Perfect Day!

Robert Ryan at the Philander Chase Knox Estate was the best decision we made!! Leigh and the team are the most responsive, professional, and kindest staff we've ever encountered. They made the entire process so easy on us and were so patient as we asked hundreds of questions through out the entire process. They are the best of the best. The planning process was seamless and the entire wedding was a dream. Luke, our day of coordinator, was amazing!! He and the entire crew were so attentive to every guest and always made sure we had water, drinks, food, etc. We loved every part of our experience and we wouldn't have changed a thing!!!

Highlights:
Leigh - she is phenomenal and so helpful/responsive!!
Luke & day of staff- the SWEETEST group of people (there was a medical emergency of one of our guests and they handled it so calmly and made sure the entire night still went smoothly)
The food! - we loved it!! Especially the manicotti and all of the hors d'oeuvres
The venue - so accommodating!! PCK was the most perfect venue even on a rainy evening in a pandemic
We would choose this venue all over again!

Amazing Food!

The venue uses this catering service so we did not get to pick our catering but I am glad it was not left up to us because after our food tasting we couldn鈥檛 of been happier or more pleased with the food. It was delicious!! Everything we had was better than expected and they were so good with all the questions and food requests willing to customize anything to what we wanted or did not want even on such a large scale.

I've photographed weddings at a few Robert Ryan venues and have always been impressed with the friendly, helpful staff as well as the beautiful locations and amazing food. As a recent bride myself, I have to say I was really impressed with their willingness to work with my daughter's celiac dietary restrictions.

Alexandria Catherine Events Alexandria Catherine Events Wedding Planners

I've had the pleasure of working with the Robert Ryan Catering team on many occasions, and they do a great job every time. Their team works hard and is well-trained, their management is flawless and their menus are mouth-watering. As a vendor, you'd be lucky to work with them and as a client you'd be lucky to have them.
