The set up, the food, the atmosphere, the venue, the staff —all top notch. It was our daughter’s wedding and Caroline made everything perfect . Literally perfect . I would not change one thing. We had a special request that she made happen without question. We used her as photographer also and again —outstanding.Sent on 07/15/2018

Exceeded every expectation.
I was a bit hesitant about choosing a venue that held multiple events in the same day, but I have to say, the staff at Vecoma are experts at turning the space over between events. My wedding started at 6:00 p.m., so we only had about an hour to set up and take photos (we couldn't arrive until 4:30) before guests started to arrive. The staff had everything cleaned from the previous event, and all of our decorations beautifully placed by the time the guests started arriving. Our ceremony was outdoors by the river, but they have excellent options for moving onto the covered patio or indoors in inclement weather. The cocktail reception was held on the covered patio, and we had a cigar roller out there as well, which was very popular with our male guests. The indoor reception was lovely, and it was cool enough outside for there to be a fire in the fireplace, which added to the ambience. I looked at many venues in the area, but I really don't think I could have made a better choice. Caroline, Caitlin, and the rest of the staff were all wonderful to work with, and the fact that catering and bar service is included in the venue cost makes everything so much easier.Sent on 11/06/2018
