Oh my gosh! Where do I start???!!! First of all, I’m a photographer in the industry and have been shooting weddings for 15 years so I knew exactly where I wanted to get married! The Umstead did not disappoint and exceeded my expectations 100 times over. From the room, to the food, to the attention to every little detail I was blown away by them. We ended up extending our stay by 4 days!! My parents wouldn’t even stay with us(we’re local) because they love the hotel so much! None of us wanted our time to end! I just can’t say enough good things about The Umstead and their staff. We felt like royalty!! And Amanda...I could go on and on! This is a person that is beautiful inside and out not to mention amazing at her job! Even though we have a personal relationship, she treated me with the utmost professionalism and I felt so special throughout the entire process. I get teary-eyed just thinking about it. Umstead, Amanda, Heavenly and the rest of the team, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for creating a magical experience for myself, Brad, our family and friends! Much love, CaraSent on 05/18/2018
