Father of the Bride
We had the most fantastic experience at Unity Village. The staff, Bobby and Hannah and all of their staff, worked tirelessly to accomplish a beautiful out door, June, wedding for our Daughter and Son-in-law, family and friends. About 280 of us in all. A fantastic prenuptial dinner was given on the premises by the Grooms parents. Wonderful hotel accommodations right on site. Warm friendly people running the hotel. Which was in walking distance of the wedding and reception. Back up indoor facilities were ready and available should the weather not have permitted the gorgeous out door setting, lining the fountains, that we had planned. Appetizers and open bar by the rose garden and on the terrace. Midnight nachos and sliders for those still up and going. The prices were reasonable. Everything was timely and well appointed. We wouldn't have gone anywhere else.Sent on 07/18/2019

Beautiful venue! Would recommend to anyone!
I got married 5/26 at Unity Village and it was beautiful. The outdoor area is gorgeous and looks like you are in a different country. The picture opportunities are endless with all of buildings, fountains, and landscape. We were worried it was going to rain which concerned us because the indoor chapel area is very outdated and does not compare at all to the outside space. Unity Village is very up and coming and renewing their spaces so hopefully in the near future the indoor chapel space is updated because it could really use it in my opinion! Hannah and Bobby-the wedding coordinators were extremely helpful and always able to answer our questions along with being very timely and accommodating. I never felt like they wouldn’t be willing to help or make changes if needed. The only thing that was a little bit of a con was the grooms dressing rooms/getting ready room is very small compared to the bridal one and the guys ended up hanging out in the bridal suite because theirs was very small. Along with the only bathrooms (that we found at least) were connected to the bridal suite so when guests were coming in from the parking lot and going to the bathroom they were seeing the bride & groom and the bridal party which caught us all off guard and was kind of disappointing because usually guests shouldn’t see the party/bride and groom before hand. Possibly adding another bathroom for guests before hand would be helpful. Other than that Unity Village was a great space for our wedding! I couldn’t imagine doing it anywhere else. The space is so big and you have it all to yourself it’s great. The reception space is newly redone and is great for large weddings. We had over 200 people in the space and never felt crowded at allSent on 06/20/2019
