Easy, fair, and fun!
We enjoyed our wedding at The Olana so much! Overall, the staff was easy to communicate with and worked with us on all of our wants and needs in a very fair way. Even the security officers went above and beyond, showing our guests around the amazing spaces throughout the house. It was truly a night for EVERYONE to remember.Sent on 10/15/2019

Beautiful, unique, magical, helpful staff,
The Olana was amazing. Where do I start?!
The beauty of the place is unlike anything in the area. The European feel makes it so luxurious, glamorous, and unique. Anytime I showed someone The Olana it was a gasp EVERY TIME. I loved getting to spend the day in that beautiful mansion and it being the backdrop in my wedding photos! Not to mention guests love it. So much so that I had people I hardly knew ask if they could come haha! In my suite I had girl talks in the sauna, a bubble bath, and a cozy fireplace!
The staff was my next favorite thing. Andrew was our go-to guy and I’m so type A that I always felt bad for asking a billion questions but he always had an answer and was so kind! All of our requests were met and he was so laid back it was so calming planning all of it! Walters has been doing weddings for so long they have all their bases covered and know what they’re doing. I’m also a wedding photographer and I love even working at Walters venues because they’re so professional and put together. They’ll take care of you!
Some people dislike venues that require you to use their caterer but let me call your concerns! Their catering is AMAZING! Very reasonably priced, wait staff was awesome, and I had so many people tell me it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had! Doing it through the venue was honestly so much easier too. All I had to do was tell them what I wanted and how much and they took care of it all. One less vendor to coordinate with makes a big difference in those planning stages. AND they accommodated for my guests with vegan/dietary requirements.
The Olana is all around perfect. I toured a couple other mansion/estate style venues and nothing is even in the same realm as this place. It was magical and I can’t imagine my wedding day being anywhere else!Sent on 12/21/2019
The Olana's reply:Hi Lindsay! WOW! Thank you SO much for that stunning review! We could not be happier that you and Jesse chose The Olana to be the backdrop of your special day! We are so happy that you and your guests enjoyed the venue and the in house catering as well! We're also thrilled that Andrew was of help to you throughout the whole process! We truly cannot thank you enough for your kind words and for trusting us with such a special day! We wish you and Jesse the absolute best in your marriage and look forward to working with you at other events soon!

Amazing, amazing, amazing
We booked our wedding with The Olana later this year. We are SO excited! Obviously the venue itself is stunning and amazing and perfect and unlike any other but the staff with Walters is also amazing. I work in the wedding industry and have worked with Walters a few times in the past and they’re so put together and experienced I feel very confident they’ll handle our day without any issues. Another thing I loved was when we took our tour (I think his name was Andrew) he made us feel so not pressured meaning I didn’t feel like he was trying to “sell” us the venue like other tours we’d been on. I caught a few other venues we toured using sales tricks on me and I hated that. But at The Olana he just showed us around and let the beautiful venue speak for itself! Anytime someone asks me where we’ll be getting married I freak out because I get so excited to talk about the sauna, bowling alley, basketball court, all the amazing amenities that we’ll get to enjoy! I’m going to have to plan out every minute to make sure there’s time for it all! I have actually had people I hardly know invite themselves to my wedding because they want to go see the venue! After our tour we sat down and were given a really helpful booklet pricing everything out. Other venues would say “it’ll be xx amount” then when we got a contract it would be soooo much more. The Olana was so straight forward with their pricing and I really appreciate that! They’re always prompt with replying to my emails with 10,000 questions haha! I’m very, very happy with the service and the gorgeous venue we’ll have at The Olana! I hope other brides get to experience this for themselves!Sent on 04/09/2019
