You won't regret it!

BOOK YOUR WEDDING HERE - YOU WONT REGRET IT! The planning, the food, the drinks, the scenery.... and not obscenely overpriced like others on the water. Kelsey and her colleagues are nothing short of amazing at what they do, and with this venue, you have a truly magical combination. I'm not the girl that's been planning her wedding since she was four, and the engagement was a surprise - so it goes without saying we needed a lot of help. The support from Kelsey made all the difference in the world.- she's a model of professionalism, poise and experience, and we would be lost without her. We had just the most magical day ever, and that wouldn't have been possible if she and the team were less than perfect. I truly don't know how they do it.

10/10 Experience at Union Bluff!

My husband and I fell in love with the Union Bluff several years ago when we went to a close friends wedding. We loved it so much that we decided to get married there this summer and wouldn't have changed a thing! The venue itself is absolutely beautiful, you can't beat the view. Our wedding planner, Darlene, was beyond helpful and organized. She thought of every last detail and our wedding went off without a hitch. I would recommend this venue to ANYONE - but especially to folks who have guests coming from out of town. Everything is so convenient for family and friends visiting the area. We got married on a Friday, and most of our guests stayed the whole weekend at the Hotel - so it felt like our wedding lasted 3 days! We had such a beautiful wedding here thanks to Darlene and her team at the Union Bluff.
