    The BEST venue, service, and staff

    Kayla Bower, the Umstead event coordinator, along with Gina, our day of wedding planner, went above and beyond to make our big day an absolute dream, the kind of day you imagine having as a little girl! From the ceremony location outside, to the reception in the grand ballroom, the entire day felt like a fairytale with attention to every last detail. We were adamant on including several personal touches into our wedding that could not have been incorporated without their help. Our guests were completely blown away by the high-quality service, friendly staff, beautiful venue, and overall experience at the Umstead. There is no other place I could’ve pictured having my wedding or a better team out there.
    The food was absolutely incredible -- the best meal we have ever had. It was so good, we wish we could have it all over again! The service was, unbelievably, even better. The staff treated us and our guests like royalty.

    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, Cara
