Excellent Experience at Vandiver
My daughter had her wedding reception at Vandiver Inn on a beautiful October evening. Vandiver Inn is an exemplary reception venue. The setting at Vandiver is gorgeous. The historic inn gives the feel of going back in time, and the garden and reception space are lovely. From our first meeting at Vandiver to tour the venue, the staff was professional, knowledgeable, and competent. Through out the planning and execution of the reception our wedding consultant, Ashley, was remarkable. She was attentive and met any need that we presented. During the reception the servers at Vandiver were exceptional. Everything ran smoothly and on time. We stayed overnight at the inn, and the rooms were not only charming, but also very comfortable. The food at the cocktail hour and reception was phenomenal. Everything was mouthwatering and cooked to perfection. Our guests raved about the Vandiver and many commented that it was the best reception they had attended. Most important, though, my daughter and son-in-law had a truly magical wedding day, which was largely due to the quality of the staff and facility at Vandiver Inn.Sent on 11/04/2019

Perfect from start to finish!
We booked the Vandiver 16 months before our wedding, and it could not have been more perfect. From first contact with Chasi to their up-front pricing and coordination, the booking process was seamless. We also met the owners, John and Susan who were absolutely lovely. Once we were booked we were transferred to Liz who coordinated the actual event and I was continuously blown away by the level of service we received from her even before the event. Liz was absolutely flawless from start to finish. The day of the event was perfect and it was really all thanks to her (with the help of the wonderful front -desk staff and others I know!) So many things I didn't even know about until the day after or days after and so many things I didn't even think about were taken care of before I had a chance to even wonder about them. The banquet staff was a ton of fun also- we got some really fun pictures of them dancing with our guests. It's such a great feeling to know that the staff enjoys working here! I can't say enough great things about this venue. We can't wait to come back and hopefully stay for our anniversary! Also- before I forget, the food was AMAZING! Thanks to Chef Susan, John, Liz, Chasi and the whole crew for an unforgettable weekend!!Sent on 01/02/2020

Nov. 2, 2019 Wedding
My husband and I cannot recommend Vandiver Inn enough as a venue. From the moment we met with Chasi to discuss wedding possibilities and toured the grounds, we knew this venue was for us. The staff are like a family and make you feel at home. From the planning stages to the day of the wedding, we felt completely taken care of. While our original day of coordinator went on maternity leave (Congrats again Theresa!), our backup, Ashley, stepped in and took over as if she was there from day one. Ashley made sure the entire day went smoothly and according to schedule. Our rambunctious family came in the night before the wedding to stay and the Vandiver staff (especially Kim) were accommodating and entertaining. They took everything in stride and became one with our family. During the reception, our families were excited that the staff celebrated and danced with us. One staff member even helped teach guests (and the bride) how to Wobble! We were beyond pleased with our experience here, have gotten so many compliments on the venue, and we will be returning for our one year anniversary!Sent on 11/30/2019
