Treats You Like Royalty
We originally went with another venue but it ended up not being the right fit for various reasons. My parents really liked Turf Valley as there is an indoor option, places to get ready, various rooms for the events for the weekend, amenities galore, and it is convenient for out of town guests. I had some trepidation but it was the best possible venue we could have hoped for. Carol was in charge of helping us with the event and she really took charge. She was extremely helpful, answered questions thoughtfully and was very responsive, and made sure that we had everything we needed. The facility is spotless and well manicured. We had to have our ceremony inside because of rain and no one even knew because it went perfectly. The reception was perfect as well. They even had our food delivered to the room with a bottle of champagne. If you have any hesitancy, trust in Turf Valley. You won't be disappointed.

Incredible venue for an Incredible wedding
When looking at venues we knew we wanted an all-inclusive type venue, and that's exactly what Turf Valley was. We were able to have the ceremony, reception, rehearsal dinner, and lodging all in one place. Turf Valley also provided its own catering so we did not have to look to outside caterers or have to worry about buying our own plates, cutlery, linens, etc. They even included a custom wedding cake from Debi's Cake Studio in their wedding package. For the amount of what was included, Turf Valley can not be beat for a beautiful venu. Our wedding took place in fall, and although it was freezing in early November, there were plenty of gorgeous photo opportunity on site. The ceremony and reception spaces were also beautiful and needed minimal decorations. As far as planning the wedding, it could not have been any easier. Leading up to the wedding, Jenny was able to answer any questions we had and she helped us work out our perfect menu for the reception. She made the planning process so easy that we did not have to worry about anything on the actual wedding day. Even if we did have questions, we had an on-site coordinator on the wedding day who made sure everything went according to plan. When we wanted to extend our reception by an hour, our on-site coordinator easily made that happen. Our guests had an incredible time and were raving about the venue.
