I can't say enough good things about Brette, Henry, and their staff at the Maridor. Our wedding went off without a hitch. I am a very dominant person, one who needs to be in control of things so that I can know they are being done just right so my wedding day was a bit scary to me. I was able to basically let go and let Brette, she knows how things flow best, she knows where you need to be when, I mean, she was amazing. Brette can serve as a day of coordinator and she did a fabulous job. The Maridor is absolutely visually stunning while being very comfortable and functional. Can't say enough about the staff, the food, the bar, and the decor, perfect 10!Sent on 11/02/2015

I could not have had a better experience with the Maridor. It was the perfect venue for my husdand and I. We loved having the ceremony out maids in the backyard area. The tree was perfect! The inside layout of the house really helped guest feel comfortable and able to flow and move around. Brenda was perfect in helping facilitate the wedding. I would highly any couple getting married in Roanoke to tour the Maridor.Sent on 10/16/2018

The Maridor was a great choice for our small-ish (80 guest) reception at the end of April! The old house has so much charm and the new owners that took over last summer (in 2017) have made some nice improvements. We held our wedding ceremony at church, but were still able to take advantage of the beautiful yard/ceremony space by holding our cocktail hour outside. The real gem of The Maridor though is the people! Rita and Brenda were so easy to work with! They were helpful with suggestions on décor and table arrangements, prompt in responses to emails, and VERY flexible with some last minute schedule changes for us to drop off/set up items the day before the reception. On the wedding day, the food was great, the venue was polished, and reception could not have gone more smoothly. The Maridor staff helped to make our wedding reception so special and memorable! Thank you!Sent on 06/02/2018
