    Couldn't have asked for a better reception...everyone was helpful, friendly, and did a wonderful job. I highly recommend them for a beautiful setting, great service and amazing food! Special thanks also to wedding planner Bobby Kyser whom they recommended for our flowers and décor!

    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 We were worried it was going to rain which concerned us because the indoor chapel area is very outdated and does not compare at all to the outside space.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 all
