    The most magical wedding

    I cannot say enough about Searles Castle and all of the staff who helped us have the perfect wedding. Our wedding was August 2nd and our guests are still raving about the venue! Shaun was amazing when it came to coordinating all of the details and ensuring that everything went smoothly leading up to the wedding and especially on the wedding day. He and the rest of the staff worked tirelessly to make sure we could enjoy our wedding day without worrying about the little details. We really felt taken care of. The food was delicious and our waitress even put together a plate of appetizers to make sure we got some since we took photos during our cocktail hour. The venue itself was just stunning and I couldn’t have imagined my wedding anywhere else. Searles was the first and last venue we toured, we knew once we visited that we had have our wedding there.

    Joy & Matthew C. - we are so happy to hear from you and enjoyed every minute of being allowed to participate in your perfect day! Thank you for taking the time to share your happiness and accept our sincere wishes for many many years of wedded bliss!

    Just- Incredible! WOW!

    Searles Castle-- WOW. This whole experience was just incredible, and the castle gave us everything we needed. Shaun made planning so easy! Not only that, but the entire staff was amazing from start to finish. They were all super accommodating and moved with a purpose, they all worked so seamlessly together. I had an accident with my foot right in the middle of cocktail hour, where I was sure I was going to have to go to the hospital, and the party would have to go on without the bride and groom. The entire staff acted immediately with first aid, getting medical attention, and even set up a hidden stool with ice under my table to elevate my foot. They all made sure I was taken care of and went above and beyond our expectations. I can’t say enough about the staff and how incredible my experience was with them all. They have an onsite catering company, and the food was so delicious! On top of all that, A BEAUTIFUL venue for a romantic, memorable, fairy tale wedding. The scenery is picture perfect, and our photos turned out phenomenally! A beautiful venue inside and outside, every inch of the castle is breathtaking. My husband and I feel so lucky to have gotten married here. If you are looking for a perfect venue for a wedding your guests will NEVER forget, book your wedding at Searles Castle!
