    Brandy is so professional and sweet. She really does everything to accommodate you and make your wedding day so perfect. The venue is truly beautiful, and it is so convenient to have the reception hall so close. I would definitely recommend this venue!

    it was a very beautiful venue for us to have our special day. The church is gorgeous and the reception space is a decent size, not too big not too small. It was extremely elegant and everybody who came got that it was a very beautiful and romantic sight.

    Excellent venue! Brandy is very say to work with and is always willing to help you with ANY detail of your wedding! The grounds are beautiful, the staff is flexible and accommodating, and the venue is perfect! You can go out and see it as many times as you want before your wedding, which is so nice! Bring extra mirrors and a small table or two for the bridal suite and make sure a staff personnel is on site AT ALL TIMES during your wedding. And don't hesitate to ask Brandy for help! She is wonderful. When my caterer didn't show up on time and the reception hall wasn't ready when it was supposed to be, she was on the phone fixing the problem before I even knew about it! Wonderful place to have a wedding and worth every penny!

    St. Anthony’s is peaceful & romantic. Location is convenient but the property, is so quiet you would never know you are near town.
    I found the staff (Brandy) to be very helpful & available to recommend vendors & answer all questions.
    The only downside came on our wedding day.
    -When reserved, the bridge had a sound system operated by CD or Ipod. I spent days choosing the music to set the perfect tone. When meeting to finalize everything, was told they no longer used Ipods & to provide a CD. On the day of, the CD was available by 8:30am. At 3:15pm (4pm ceremony), I was told our CD wouldn’t work. Brandy provided a CD which served the purpose. However, they should have specified which CD’s would work or tested ours earlier. We could have reacted if that had been done. Music is extremely important to my fiancé & I & it was disappointing not use our carefully selected songs.
    -2 wks prior, I shared we had a slideshow to play during the reception. I stressed that the sound track was very important. On the day of, we were told the staff would make sure our DJ had it set-up. DJ wasn’t there was a sound track so he played his own music instead.
    -Were told staff would light candles in the décor. During setup, Brandy left so I texted & asked to show her where the candles where. Was told to text it. I did & the candles were lit. However, we left the lids beside the lanterns in the chapel so they would be easier to light. Staff did not replace the lids. It looked bad & was a fire hazard. While taking pictures, one of the pews bows caught fire. Thankfully nothing was damaged but it could have been prevented had the staff closed the lids or told us to do it.
    I understand these are minor issues. I am detail oriented & had high expectations (which is fair given the cost) but was disappointed in the service the day of the wedding.
    Outside of those small issues, it was an amazing location! Our guests loved it & the setting created beautiful pictures!

    This venue is absolutely beautiful and has everything you could want on site with dressing rooms, outside ceremony location, a gorgeous chapel, and a beautiful reception hall. It is however pretty pricy, and in order to make it possible we were only able to rent the facility for half a day, giving only 2 hours to completely decorate ceremony aand reception before it started. We wouldn't have been able to make it work without planners. Communication was difficult at times as well. This is a very beautiful place and I have no regrets about using them and would do it all over again. However I highly encourage carefully reading the contract before agreeing to anything to ensure it's exactly what you are expecting.

    This venue is in a BEAUTIFUL setting, with an easy location! I loved the chapel! However, we were told that the chapel held 125, when in reality it only seated about 110. We had people standing. The reception hall is right next door so I loved the location, and it is also very beautiful. We hired the owner as our coordinator so all I did was provide the decorations, and she did all the work. I rented the venue for the whole day! I wanted us to have plenty of time for pictures, etc. The venue has a house right by the chapel where the bridal party is allowed to use for the day. But we were told that all their belongings had to be removed by 7 pm. When she told us this, I was unaware of how the day would unfold, and so when it was time for the ceremony, at 5:00, we had just gotten through with pictures so we didn't have time to remove our things from the house. During the reception, I (mother of the bride), along with my oldest daughter (maid of honor) was told that we had to remove our things or get charged another $200. We had to go to the house and clean all of our belongings out. AGAIN, this was DURING the reception!! To me this was unprofessional based on the fact that I had rented the whole venue until 11:00 pm! The price of the venue was already expensive, and then to threaten to tack on $200 more...I couldn't believe it! If I had it to do over, I would NOT have cleaned out the house until AFTER my daughter and her groom had exited and just paid the $200 - because I ended up missing out on the bouquet and garter toss, and some of the guests had left by the time I got back to the reception. I would recommend this venue with CAUTION! It's a beautiful place, but the owner has NO flexibility on timelines!

    The venue itself was phenominal! As for trying to plan a wedding, being in the military and having to plan from a different state, they literally never answered my phone calls and returned maybe just a couple.They do not waiver on their time.My mother had her things in the bridal room and they locked them in there.They told us to be out by 5pm and started kicking the groom and all the groomsmen out before 5pm.I told them me being in the military it gets really busy and I would need to be reminded of my final payment and I did not get reminded so they called me a couple days later and I was charged an extra 25 dollars.They allowed me to start my time at nine and no one was there when I arrived, yet I couldn't be there any earlier even though I really needed to start set up earlier cause again being in the military, I had to have the rehearsal the same day. Over all I would not recommend them for any one having to plan from out of state or in the military.Also, them not being flexible, my minister was sent to the wrong place so we had to wait an hour to really start so I would say their time slot is not conducive to emergencies, also the bridal room is not very big, and it's not fancy.Not that it needs to be but if you want special pictures of your dress and shoes and rings that is not the place for it.And there is no where to hang your dress up outside of the closet.We also had to run out in a rush cause again with us starting an hour late 9 came up on us quick so in a rush to get everything off the premises we left a sign and rocking chair for my decor that I really really wanted to keep and when we called them to try and get it back, once again they did not answer or return our message.I think they either threw it away or are keeping it.A bottle of wine did get dropped on our way out the door but even if they're upset over that, I feel it's unprofessional to keep or throw away items that are left behind. It's not that they are wrong, but know what you are getting.

    Terrible to work with when things go badly. Booked a year in advance but with 7 months to go the engagement was called off due to an abusive relationship. Of no concern to these folks since they had their money. No offer of even a partial refund even if they could re-book. I recommend working with people who have more compassion.
