    We had a beautiful reception at Wolfert's Roost! JoAnn was great to work with during the planning process and helped us put together a reception that our guests are still raving about. Beautiful decor, nice big dance floorm excellent service, delicious food and they were even able to handle special dietary requests without a problem. They even let us come in the day before the wedding to practice our first dance. (Note: We had an afternoon reception -- many of our guests had only been to the Roost at night and had never seen the incredible view out the window before!) So gorgeous and our only regret is that the day flew by so quickly. Thank you to everyone at Wolfert's Roost for making our wedding day a dream come true!

    We picked the Roost as our venue for both our ceremony and reception and we could have been be happier with our choice. After visiting a few other venues and feeling like people were more interested in our wallet than in what we wanted, the Roost was the obvious choice for us. The venue is beautiful, the grounds are gorgeous, so are the dining room used for the ceremony and the reception room. They also have a great patio off of the bar area that our guests enjoyed very much. I must say that one of the best things about the Roost is that the prices they give you already include taxes and gratuity. It's a little thing that made a huge difference for us, it was so much easier to have an idea of what we were getting ourselves into! At the time we booked the Roost, the manager was Don. He sat with us for as long as we needed and made us feel very comfortable. The new wedding manager is Joann and we were just as pleased with her as we were with Don. She handled our wedding wonderfully and all of our guests were delighted! The food was amazing, people still come and rave to me about it. Joann and her staff took paid attention to details and everything turned out beautifully. The prices are reasonable, the service is impeccable, and Joann really made us feel at home. I could not thank her enough for helping make our wedding day as perfect as we could have hoped for!

    Wolferts Roost Country Club is such a beautiful venue. They were so wonderful to work with throughout the entire planning process and our reception was fantastic. If anything did go wrong we had no idea! They were very smooth and attentive. The food was wonderful and we were very pleased with the service and assistance they provided throughout the day.

    I love weddings at The Roost! Everything is upscale and elegant, but at the same time comfortable and relaxed. You will never be rushed! Don Edmonds handles everything for couples and is easily one of the best I’ve ever seen. He is always hands-on and goes above and beyond to make sure couples are delighted. Nothing is left to chance. A-plus service from start to finish. There are wonderful backdrops for pictures not to mention the spectacular entrance staircase that is unlike any other I’ve ever seen. Plus, the main reception ballroom is perfect with a huge dance floor and floor-to-ceiling windows behind the head table. The Roost also have a superb room for indoor ceremonies and a bridal suite!!
