    Fantastic wedding! Not a thing I would change.

    As soon as we met Darlene when we went to visit the Union Bluff, we knew she was who we wanted to work with! Darlene, plus the incredible beachfront ceremony location, sold us on the venue. Darlene was available the entire process to answer any question promptly and fully. The day turned out to be absolutely perfect and everything we could鈥檝e hoped for! Everyone raved about how delicious the food was - we had stations (everyone loved the pasta bar and the prime rib!). Darlene and her crew made sure everything in the ballroom was exactly how we envisioned it and it was beautiful. After hearing friends/family say they hadn鈥檛 eaten at their own weddings, I was nervous about getting food. I mentioned this to Darlene and she and the staff checked in on us through the whole event to make sure we had plenty to do eat and got to sample everything. I would not hesitate to recommend the union bluff for a wedding. There isn鈥檛 a thing I would change about our day and choosing the Union Bluff was the best move we made in wedding planning.

    Wonderful service!

    The Union Bluff Meeting House was a perfect venue for us. They were incredibly flexible with us as we had to change our wedding date three times, and everything was perfect on the day of. The food was delicious, and our coordinator was happy to answer any questions that came up during the process, and was with us on the wedding day. We had our wedding off season in November and had the area pretty much to ourselves.

    Amazing staff and experience!!

    Had the most perfect wedding day at Union Bluff! Most of our guests were from out of town and everything was really convenient. Amy was our coordinator and did an absolutely amazing job!! She went above and beyond, even helped blow dry my dress after it rained! She was calm, and kept everything on schedule. She made the suggestion for our rehearsal dinner. She truly made wedding planning such a breeze and we were so fortunate to work with her. Everything was decorated perfectly. We had to move our ceremony inside due to a storm and the transition was seamless. Staff during the reception was super friendly, they set aside food for us and made sure we were eating. Overall highly recommend Union bluff!
