Mother of the Bride
From the very first time we visited Ryland Inn, our daughter knew it was just what she was looking for. Not a ballroom, not a barn. Lara was our contact person/event coordinator. She did an excellent job of keeping in touch, coordinating all the various vendors, and making sure everything we envisioned happened. Lara also was able to make suggestions based on her extensive experience that wound up working better than our original ideas. She was always professional, respectful, and never tried to upsell options. We felt that she had her finger on the pulse and everything went without a hitch.Sent on 03/19/2020
Toni was my daughter's bridal attendant assigned by Ryland and she was on top of everything, from helping the bride dress,making sure both the bride and the groom had what they needed, making sure they had sometime to just breathe and be together, and made sure they ate. And, the part we loved best--she joined us on the dance floor!
The bartenders and wait staff were on point. Also joined in on the dance floor!
Food was perfect, set-up was perfect, the day was perfect.
We did opt to rent farmhouse tables and chairs from The Daylily Group as we thought it reflected the ambiance of the Coach House.
It would be a mistake though to call this a well-oiled machine, because that conjures up "wedding mill' .
Far from it, a wedding at the Ryland Inn is more like a fine-tuned orchestra.

Bride & Groom
Where to begin? Looking for a venue that felt like my husband and I was a little difficult, as we really are not a "ballroom or barn" type couple. I happened upon The Ryland Inn by chance and made an appt. to visit it. This was the first place we were going to look at, my now husband had to work so my parents and I went and I absolutely fell in love with the grounds and the space. I called my husband and told him all about it and that was it we booked that day. Lara was our wedding coordinator and we could not have asked for anyone better. Lara answered any questions we had and honestly we didn't have too many because she literally took care of everything that we didn't have too many unanswered questions. The wedding tasting was pretty much a mini wedding and allowed you to really understand the quality of food they will be serving. Food was important to us and the fact that during the tasting the chef explains the farm to table dishes was a bonus to us. The day of our wedding we were so excited, Lara coordinated all our vendors so all we had to do was show up and enjoy our day. My bridal attendant Toni was a star! Toni goes above and beyond not only for her bride but for the groom, our family, and really our guests, you know and feel just how much she loves what she does and I could not have asked for anything more. Kat and the wait staff what can I say... Amazing! I can not say enough, everyone of our guests and I truly mean everyone came up to either myself, my husband, or our parents to tell us just how much they loved the entire staff. Impeccable is actually the word we had heard over and over again and we could not agree more. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts you made our wedding day the most memorable day ever and its so amazing to continue to hear from guests just how much fun they had and just how amazing the staff and venue were. Our hearts are so full with the memories of our day and that I believe says a lot about just how incredible the venue and staff are. Thank you ❤Sent on 04/04/2020

Our Dream Wedding!
Wow. Where to even begin. Our experience with the Ryland from beginning to end was exceptional. We booked their gorgeous Coach House space in December 2018 and were married in February 2020. We worked primarily with our coordinator, Lara Nestler through the planning. Lara is so sweet and incredibly good at what she does. She created a vision for us and helped execute it to a T. She worked hard to make sure we had our dream wedding all while staying within our budget and for that, we are grateful. Our bridal attendant, Tawny, is an actual super hero. She was by our side all night taking care of every tiny detail and need, sometimes without us even asking - it’s like she has some sort of bridal telepathy. Our guests told us multiple times that our wedding was the nicest they’d ever been to and that the food was out of this world. The Ryland takes care of EVERYTHING for you. If you’re a naturally anxious worrier like myself, you would be making a huge mistake not to book this venue. I’m 1000% satisfied!Sent on 02/18/2020
