Our wedding was everything we ever wanted!
I couldn't have imagined a more perfect venue that had everything we were looking for. Our wedding was incredible and everything we wanted. Not one thing went wrong. Nothing!!! The staff was excellent! Our guests were so impressed with how fast and efficient the buffet dinner went! Honestly from the start of the day all the way up to midnight, the night was everything my husband and I had hoped for. Things were more than perfect and I could never thank The Shore enough for all that they did. Anna steered us in all the right directions for all our decisions and we are still hearing about how good the food was! Words will never be able to explain our gratitude! I have nothing but amazing things to say! Thank you for making our wedding absolutely amazing.Sent on 04/17/2019

amazing venue and team
My wedding was held at the shores of turtle creek august of 2019 and it was PERFECT! We had the best day ever. The location is absolutely gorgeous and I received endless compliments from guests on the venue. The grounds are beautiful we took the most amazing pictures and the ceremony was breath taking. The staff was courteous and very professional. They met all the needs of my guests. Anna is amazing to work with! i could not have done this wedding without her. She is an expert at every aspect of the venue and knows how to make things run smoothly and ensure the day goes according to plan. From knowing where to set the head table to avoid glare for photos to the best spots for after ceremony pictures, she knew it all totally took control and made my day stress free and amazing, Thank you Anna and everyone else from the shores of turtle creek for making our wedding day so perfect!Sent on 09/22/2019
