From the first day to weeks after the wedding they were fantastic and very helpful. We were given a tour of the facility and walked through everything they could do and include. There are multiple on site venues to do a ceremony all very beautiful with different feels; I went with the patio, but rain caused us to move it in last minute. They were able to change everything around within an hour to get the ceremony moved inside. Even though it was moved inside it was still gorgeous and many of my guest had no idea that it was originally supposed to be outside and they commented that they liked the atmosphere better inside. The food is fantastic! I had a plated dinner where me and my husband were able to have both chicken and steak. The staff are all very kind and helpful. At the end of the night the staff clean up everything and you come back a few days later to collect your decorations and belongings. This was better than I could have asked for!Sent on 09/23/2019

Stunning Venue & Incredible Staff!!
This is truly a hidden gem venue and I am so glad we stumbled upon it on Wedding Wire!! Absolutely incredible experience from our first meeting with Patty to our tastings with the incredible chef and detailing with Amy. Patty & Amy know everything there is to know about weddings and had an answer for every tiny little detail question we asked. No reason at all to hire a wedding planner or day-of coordinator because this team is so incredible and on top of everything. They coordinated with all of our vendors (florist, DJ, photographer) flawlessly and took all of the stress out of it. They handled our last minute changes and additions perfectly, and the food was amazing. We had our ceremony on the beautiful patio, dinner in the ballroom, and back outside to the patio for dancing. Amazing staircase in the ballroom makes for a stunning grand entrance, and sweeping side walk leading down for the procession was beautiful. Bartenders and servers were perfect, food came out piping hot and all at the same time for all 150 guests. Bartenders had drink ready when they saw anyone from the wedding party approaching. Absolutely anticipated every need we had the entire night. Wine cellar was beautiful for dessert table and coffee/water station. Our moms were getting calls and texts for a week after the wedding from all their friends and family saying it was the most beautiful and fun wedding they had ever been to. This place can do anything!! Couldn't believe how affordable it was for everything we got and the perfection of the entire day and night! Truly could not have asked for a more incredible venue for our wedding and there are not enough stars in the world to give this incredible staff. Would recommend 1000 times.Sent on 06/13/2019

Wonderful Wedding Experience with Knoebel Events!
At Knoebel Events my husband and I worked with Patty Farmer and Amy Campodonico from day 1 until the day of. They were truly a joy to work with, professional, friendly and equally as excited for our wedding as we were. They made each decision easy and fun. I highly recommend them both and the Tuscan Ballroom (which was absolutely gorgeous!) for any event!!Sent on 11/07/2018
