We are extremely happy with everything Vernon downs provided to us during our very special time. We had the pleasure of planning everything with Eric Foster, who was unbelievable. He ensured all my guests had a room within our block, even when we ran out of rooms. He made the process of planning a wedding 4 hours away a breeze. He would always contact me back right away and make each of my requests. We had a room block fri and sat for our wedding at Hayloft on the arch On Saturday. Sunday morning we had a farewell brunch for our guests from 9-12. Even the cleaning staff was super nice and accommodating. Our farewell brunch was excellent and all of our guests loved it!!! Such a great experience at Vernon downs !!Sent on 11/06/2018

We could not have asked for a better wedding!!
We were just married on Friday (10/12/18) and could not say enough great things about Vernon Downs and their staff! Most importantly, Eric, their wedding coordinator was beyond amazing to work with! Every email we sent was always answered immediately. He made the extremely stressful wedding planning so much easier and was always on top of everything. We had some last minute guest count changes and seating changes which he handled greatly and completely eliminated the stress on our part. Day of the wedding, he was on top of everything!! Had some threat of rain, but Eric had a game plan for everything! He could not have made our wedding day easier or more enjoyable! I could seriously go on for pages on how fabulous he was to work with! The venue itself is incredible, lots of gorgeous places for pictures both inside and out. The race track offers a unique opportunity to use bets as favors! The food at the venue was also incredible! Guests are still raving about how delicious everything was! I have zero complaints or any criticism to offer towards the venue/staff. Many of our guests said it was the best wedding they had been to in a long time! I would recommend getting married here to anyone! They also work hard to fit whatever your dream wedding is into whatever budget you may have to work with, which is wonderful in itself! We LOVED having our wedding here!
