    Exceptional Wedding Event Coordinator and Staff

    Being a 2020 Bride who had to reschedule her wedding to 2021 due to COVID, I couldn't have asked for a better experience than I had with the wedding event staff at the Union Bluff Hotel especially Darlene Yankura. They were professional and helpful, but most importantly they cared. When we had to make the difficult decision to postpone the wedding a year, Darlene took the time to talk with us and talk through all our options. She was understanding and compassionate. When it came time for our actual wedding day I couldn't have been happier with how it all turned it out. Darlene and her staff thought of every last detail so that I could simply enjoy my wedding day and for that I am forever grateful to them!

    Amazing! Can't recommend them enough

    Everyone says wedding planning is super stressful, like a second job. It was for us...until we found the Union Bluff Meeting House and chose it as our venue and we found Darlene, our wedding coordinator. Where many other venues and coordinators came from a place of "no" Darlene and her team came from a place of "yes, we'll take care of that". Darlene's advice not only on things related to Union Bluff was incredibly valuable but also her recommendations of other vendors we used were outstanding. We were happy with all of our vendors and the wedding was everything we had hoped for and more. Everyone also told us that something is bound to go wrong on your wedding day, but Darlene made sure that did not happen for us.

    If you are looking to have a stress free day this is the team for you--I dropped off all of our reception decor and other items earlier in the week and Darlene and the staff at UB took care of everything. The following day everything was packed up neatly for us. We really didn't have to worry about a thing. Darlene even busted and unbustled my dress (twice!) when my sisters were intimidated by this task.

    The food and service was amazing, all of our guests raved about the staff. For example, one of our guests forgot to let us know about an allergy and her meal was quickly swapped out for what she needed and the team was happy to do so.
    We had many out of town guests and they appreciate the proximity of the hotel, reception venue, and ceremony to each other and the town of York, many of our families made a week or weekend out of the wedding and the location is very convenient and beautiful, right on Short Sands beach. We lucked out with the weather for our 9/21 wedding but this would be a great venue even on a rainy day. The bridal suite was great and was large enough to be comfortable for my 14! girls to get ready and have a team of hair and makeup stylists come in. It is also beautiful for photographs.
    We also utilized the hotel bar and grill for our afterparty where the staff was more than accommodating and everyone had a great time. Most vendors we worked with were very comfortable with this venue and staff at UB and this working relationship was helpful and we didn't have to worry about coordinating everything. We really can't say enough positive things about Darlene, the team at UB and the venue. We have absolutely no complaints. We would make this decision ten times out of ten. You should book Union Bluff for your wedding...You won't regret it!
