I could not have picked a better place to have our wedding reception!! In September 2016, my husband and I had our reception at The Vista at Walnut Hill. Fred and Mary Lou are absolutely wonderful to work with! Both are very personable and treat you as though they have known you for years! Fred was ALWAYS a phone call or text away, and was so helpful with the planning/organizing of our special day. Everything was very organized, from the signing of the paperwork, lining up vendors, etc. they greeted guests and treated them in such a professional yet friendly manner, and we are forever grateful! If you want an event to remember, this is definitely the place to have it!Sent on 12/03/2016

We are SO thankful that we had our daughter’s wedding at the Vista at Walnut Hill! It is a gorgeous place - inside and out and you will not find “nicer people” to work with! Fred and Mary Lou were so helpful and so pleasant! They went above and beyond to make sure that we had everything we needed! The vendors we used through their venue were also fantastic! They all worked so hard and so well together! Everything flowed so smoothly! We could not have been more pleased with how beautiful everything looked and how well it all turned out! Everyone really enjoyed themselves and we had so many compliments on EVERYTHING from the beautiful venue, to the DJ, to the delicious cake and food, and bar tenders! All of the vendors did such a wonderful job and it turned out exactly how we had hoped - “perfect and beautiful”❣️ Thank you Fred, Mary Lou, Rick, Katie and crew, and Patty and crew (from LKN), and Karen’s Bakery for helping to make our daughter’s Special Day even more “Special”! We couldn’t have done it without you all!! ☺️

Our wedding day was perfect!
I had my ceremony and reception at the Vista at Walnut Hill and I cannot say enough good things about the venue or the owners, Fred and MaryLou. Our wedding exceeded any and all expectations I had and I owe a lot of that to their kindness, helpfulness, and hard work to make our wedding perfect! The venue is beautiful and you can see all the details and love that has been put into it by the owners, from countless decorations and linens available for use to the antique, personalized furniture around the venue. Fred helped me find vendors that he trusted and made the planning process as seamless as it could be. The venue looked outstanding the day of our wedding and we are still hearing from our guests how beautiful it was and the amazing time they had. Fred is always available to answer any questions or let you come to the venue to show family and plan things out. The day of our wedding ran so smoothly and neither myself or my husband had to worry about a thing thanks to the care and attention Fred showed us. I will forever be grateful that we were able to begin our life together at the Vista at Walnt Hill and forever be grateful to Fred and MaryLou for everything they did for us! I cannot recommend this venue enough!!Sent on 01/01/2019
