    I had my wedding ceremony and reception at the Bluffs with 175 people . I could not be any happier with the services, and venue. The staff was amazing, and very flexible with any last minute changes I made. The food was amazing, tables were cleaned quickly. Everyone was so professional and made it so easy for my Husband and I. We got so many complements on how great the venue looked, and how things went so smoothly. I would recommend this venue to anyone.

    Jan and her staff at the bluff went above and beyond, I couldn’t be more happy with how smooth everything went! They were super helpful with everything I needed/wanted. Also everyone raved about the food and how amazing it was! You will not be disappointed if you choose the bluff!

    I have worked two weddings at the Bluff in the past (as a photographer) and both times were very enjoyable! The staff is very pleasant and the grounds and interior are very well kept. Not only was the food well prepared, it seems to be very well managed for time and service. Great place to have a wedding or event!
