    On-staff Coordinators

    One of the primary reasons we chose this venue is that it is practically all inclusive. The wedding coordinators that they have on staff have been super helpful and very responsive! The grounds are absolutely stunning and we are so excited to be getting married here.

    They saved the wedding

    So starting at the beginning, our first visit was right after they finished the chateau so Stevie was really excited to show it off to us and let me say it is beautiful up there, After we finished the whole tour we had definitely decided to pick them as our location for the wedding since everything was just so gorgeous. Which led to picking packages and signing contracts, everything was nicely laid out and explained in depth after Zoe got some details about what we were looking for. Once we left that afternoon we were really clear and happy with our choice. Next up were the planning sessions where we got to sit down and plan out the menu, as well as certain decor choices each time they were really organized and had a clear plan for what was to be accomplished at that meeting. We also went to one of the tastings so we could ensure that our food choices were good, and let me say the food is amazing especially when you consider that a lot of catering places kinda phone it in for large scale production (all of our guests were raving about the food!).

    Now fast-forward to the actual wedding night. We had a HUGE issue in that the person bringing my Husband's suit was about two hours late, once we told the venue what was happening Ambree and Zoe jumped into action to rearrange and make sure that our guests still had a great time while we were waiting on it to arrive. Ambree did a great job of keeping me in the loop as to what the plans were and what was going on downstairs since I had to stay up in the room. Their flexibility and quick thinking definitely made it so we were able to still have a beautiful wedding. Everyone on staff that night really went above and beyond which really helped ease all the anxiety I was having about the delay. If anyone asked me if I would recommend The Empress Estate I would say yes in a heartbeat, I can't imagine our day without the help and support of everyone involved that night.
