    Perfect day

    A Joy and Pleasure to have Ashley and her team host my daughter’s Wedding Ceremony and Reception!



    I believe Ashley is the finest event coordinator and host I have ever encountered and have had the pleasure of working with, for many reasons. She and her team were highly professional, responsive, accommodating, gracious, warm, and friendly throughout the whole process, and particularly the day of the wedding and reception. All phases of working with her, and particularly the day and evening of the wedding and reception, were smooth and stress – free. The entire venue is gorgeous, the guests had a wonderful time, and my daughter and new couple loved everything. An actual, real blessing, I could not have been more pleased, and I hope she and her family and the Christian Royer House continue to prosper.

    A Hidden Gem in Carroll County

    The Christian Royer House was the PERFECT venue choice for our reception! My husband and I are Catholic, so our ceremony took place at our home parish, but we love the outdoors and wanted an outdoor reception without the worry and stress of potential poor weather. The minute we drove down the beautiful driveway outlined by trees to the Christian Royer House, I was already halfway convinced. One look at the property, a walk through the house and reception tent, I was sold. The property was gorgeous and included several areas for photo ops in and around the grounds (bridges, fountains, pond, etc). The house had a rustic, country, at-home feel to it with rooms for the bridal party to get ready upstairs and a game room downstairs for the gents to get ready, again wtih plenty of photo ops. The tent floor had decking so no worry about guests' heels sinking in wet grass, in the event of rain. Shortly after we hired the Christian Royer House, there was a change in management. Both previous and new owners practiced the utmost transparency with us and created a seamless transition which kept this bride from stressing out for real! I am forever thankful to all of those who took part in helping make our reception perfect. I HIGHLY recommend this venue for any bride & groom looking for a touch of outdoors on their special day! Thank you to The Snyders and Ashley S., for coordinating one of the best days of our lives. Your excellent customer service and reliability will not be forgotten.

    The Christian Royer House's reply:

    How sweet Maria, thank you! We thought you described the feel of our venue perfectly and are so glad it was perfect for you and John. We aim to carry on the five star rating that The Christian Royer House has earned by making sure you enjoy your day with no worries! Side note- it was the cutest thing ever how teary eyed you got when you saw your flowers! Congratulations again to you and John and we hope you return to visit our log cabin for a night or weekend getaway soon! XO, Ashley
