    We were so lucky to have found The Orchards hotel online when we started our search for wedding venues. Not saying we are demanding, but we did have specific needs and wants when it came to our wedding. We can absolutely say that we found exactly what we were looking for at The Orchards. From the first walk through to our wedding day we did all of our communication and planning with Erin Poplaski, the Catering Sale Manager. She is extremely knowledgeable, gracious and easily accessible which was huge for us. Knowing that I could email her and have a response sometimes within the hour was extremely comforting. She put all of our worries at ease and met with us multiple times before the big day to ensure everything went smoothly. She never showed annoyance even though we would go over the same thing 100 hundred times. She understood our vision and how we wanted the day to not only go, but look and feel as well. I think that is a very hard job to do, but she did it so incredibly. Included in our package we got a weekend in their Suite, food tastings, convenient room blocks for traveling guests, and a much anticipated anniversary stay next year! (Plus so much more!)
    We have a young son and our biggest concern was making sure he was comfortable during our weekend stay. Erin, Michelle the Hotel Manager, and all the staff made sure he had everything he needed. They would run milk to his room and expedite his orders so he wouldn't have to wait long for his food. Everyone was so caring and sweet to him and all of our families. From the moment we checked in till we checked out we were treated like gold! The wedding went as smooth as we could of ever imagined. Unfortunately for us, the weather was not cooperating so it ended up inside. The ceremony room is intimate and beautiful. Also the food is beyond delicious (both restaurant and event food)! Everyone loved their meals!!
    This hotel is elegant but it's subtle simplicity is the sweetest touch.

    Erin was amazing to work with! We couldn’t have picked a better place to get married. The Orchards was the ideal setting for our winter wedding, including all the associated events. The weekend was perfect thanks to Erin and her team! Erin was with us every step of the way, had great suggestions, and worked tremendously hard to make our day/weekend so special. The day (actually, the whole weekend) exceeded our expectations, and our wedding day was literally the best day ever! Thanks again, Erin, for making our wedding truly unforgettable!
