Brandy at Vernon Downs made all of our dreams and visions for our wedding come true!!
Words can't fully express how truly happy my husband and I were with our choice to have our reception at Vernon Downs Casino and Hotel!! From the second we met with Brandy she was extremely helpful and attentive to all of our questions. She would respond to all the emails we sent her (which were a lot ha), immediately, and always with a response that made us feel at ease and pleased. She helped make the wedding planning process much less stressful. She helped with many aspects from putting together centerpieces, to contacting the bakery to get our cake dropped off the night before, contacting our dj, and helping me the night of our reception. It was a pleasure working with her, and communicating with her from the very start of planning to the night of our wedding, which she was there to help with also! All of our guests had nothing but compliments about the venue, the quality of the food at the buffet, the beauty of the cocktail hour on the terrace, and the presence of the wonderful wedding coordinator Brandy at our reception. We would 100% recommend Vernon Downs to anyone planning a wedding. It was more than spacious for our 215 guests, and the grounds offered many beautiful photo opportunities! The hotel room block offered to our guests was also a perk, as many stayed and hung out in the Casino bar after, which had a live band! Vernon Downs truly had all we could ever ask for and more to make our wedding reception perfect. Fun was had by all!!!Sent on 08/24/2019

We had the most amazing wedding reception thanks to the Vernon Downs team! Brandy was so flexible with us, and she truly made all of our visions come to life. The food was OUTSTANDING. Our guests have still been talking about it, over a month later. Thank you so much for such a wonderful day to remember.Sent on 02/07/2020
