Best weekend ever
I’m not even sure where to begin with this review!
Anyone who gets married and has the pleasure of working with this venue and their staff is truly blessed! They are just so flexible, easy to work with and truly want to make your wedding stress free and memorable. It was by far the best wedding we and our guests had been to. I can’t even begin to tell you how many people have reached out to let us know that they had the best time ever and how “homesick” they felt after leaving the venue. Wanting to be able to stay just one more night... and already asking if we’re going to do a reunion with this venue next year, that they “better be invited” And yes, we would love to discuss a reunion with them!
First, Natalie and Laura went above and beyond to make sure that not only we, the bride and groom were taken care of and had everything we wanted and needed all weekend long, but for all of our family and friends as well! I feel like every time I turned around there was one of them asking me if I was good or needed anything and here’s my cell just text or call if you need us! 💜
The chef was on point with his dishes!! 👌🏻🤤 Everything was delicious and you could tell as soon as meeting him that his main goal was to make everything just perfect and the way you wanted it. He made sure to touch base with us and see how we felt about how the dishes were coming along and if we had any suggestions or changes. He truly cooks with love!!
Jon and Chris Tigges have an absolutely gorgeous set up! The scenery is beautiful and there are so many different spots they have set up around the entire property to just sit and enjoy the peace and views and company.
They welcomed all of us into their home and it was such a pleasure to get to know them.
Chris made breakfast for us all on Saturday and Sunday morning and was sure to have everything we could have craved!
They also made sure throughout the entire process that we were comfortable and guided us in making all of our decisions. One of the biggest things I have to say about the whole part of the wedding planning process is it can be stressful finding certain vendors for certain things and gathering up everything from catering to tables/plates/silverware to decorations and flowers, but at Zion Springs, they literally take on all aspects of your wedding. One stop shop and so many options, they will literally make what you want happen. 💜
Doug, the photographer, omg, his photos!!! 📸Just amazing! Seriously. We met him for our engagement photo shoot earlier this year and we loved him!! Love his passion and dedication to us from the time we met! He spent the better half of his afternoon and evening driving around with us capturing amazing photos all over our area. The wedding photos we have seen so far in our “sneak peek” certainly have not disappointed either! We have gotten several compliments on his photos, saying these are magazine worthy and the best wedding photos they have seen! At the end of our wedding night he put together a sneak peek slideshow of our big day with some of the photos he had captured through the entire process. Our guests LOVED seeing that! We can not wait to see all of the other photos from the weekend!! 🤩 The photo booth was a great touch! What a great way to capture some funny memories of all our loved ones! Another thing we would strongly suggest is the live streaming! Some of our loved ones were unable to attend but were able to watch our wedding weekend with the live streaming option the venue had offered! The people who watched us live said this was super cool and awesome and was a great way to be there for us! They enjoyed feeling a part of the crowd! Also want to thank all the other photographers that were there throughout the weekend, the photos are simply beautiful and a work of art!! Y’all are so talented!!
Also want to give a big shout out to our bartenders for the weekend, Steven & Rodney! They were fun, attentive and a pleasure to work with as well! (I’m sure there are some good stories from down at that bar) 🍾🍻🥂
All in all, this venue and the entire staff certainly went above and beyond for us not just for a wedding but for a memorable weekend experience nobody is going to forget!! We enjoyed all the parting gifts as well, Thank you all!! 👰🏼🤵🏻💞Sent on 10/13/2020

Excellent experience, friendly support team!
Due to the coronavirus, we had to change our plans considerably. Everyone was so helpful and accommodating, couldn't ask for a better place to hold a rehearsal dinner or wedding. Highly recommend you consider Zion Springs for your event.Sent on 05/18/2020

Our wedding at Zion Springs was amazing!! The staff there are so warm and welcoming! They made us feel like family the whole weekend. They helped with everything from planning to food and flowers. Zion Springs is a one stop shop! They were able to provide food, the DJ, flowers, wedding planner, decorations and place to stay for up to 36 guests. Anything that was not covered at the venue, our wedding planner helped us get taken care of! Zion Springs exceeded all of my expectations!Sent on 10/08/2019

I would highly recommend Zion Springs as a wedding venue. My daughter and new son-in-law were married there this past weekend and it was outstanding! After looking at several venues in the state of Virginia, they chose Zion Springs for many reasons, one of which was the option to have their family and friends on site for the entire weekend. Several family members stayed in the bed-and-breakfast and many of the bridesmaids, groomsmen and friends stayed in rooms in the barn. Our hosts, Chris and Jon, were the best! They were friendly, flexible and so accommodating! We enjoyed delicious breakfasts and lunch, and snacks were always available too. The ceremony was beautiful on the terrace and the reception in the barn was wonderful! All of the spaces available to us were beautiful and inviting, including the firepit areas, the outdoor patio tables and rocking chairs, the porch at the bed-and-breakfast and the areas for the rehearsal dinner, cocktail hour after the ceremony, game-playing and picture-taking. I cannot say enough about this venue. We loved it and I can honestly say that my daughter’s wedding was one of the best and most fun days of my life and Zion Springs was a large part of making that happen!Sent on 05/03/2019
Stephanie Booth · Married on 10/01/2020
We highly recommend Zion Springs for events, elopements, and weddings. Jon really has something special up there. Trying to plan a wedding in general is really stressful, especially during a pandemic so, we decided on eloping. I was really worried that I was going to regret not including my family or having a big wedding, but after our adventure elopement at Zion springs, all those feelings went away! I don’t regret a thing. Everyone there is absolutely amazing, they put us at ease and treated us so well. The entire day was so perfect. My husband and I had so much fun. Laura and Doug took us on the adventure we dreamed of and we had the greatest ceremony and got some of the most breathtaking pictures (they honestly recreated my Pinterest board). Then after our adventure, the chef provided us with a top-notch picnic along with a cake and then an unforgettable dinner (all with making everything allergy safe since I have several food allergies!). They had everything covered from the coordinator and photographer, my gorgeous bouquet, the food/drinks, and the officiant. They took all the stress out of the wedding process and provided us with the ability to truly enjoy each other and celebrate our marriage on our special day. Everything was so handled so perfectly. We would do it again a thousand times!Sent on 10/03/2020
Zion Springs's reply:Thanks, Stephanie, for your kind words. We're so pleased that you had the perfect adventure elopement you dreamed about.

Best Comprehensive Wedding Venue
We could not be more pleased with the entire staff at Zion Springs Bed and Breakfast, the venue for our daughter’s wedding. They thought of everything and provided comprehensive, multiple choice of services. The owner, Jon, participated actively and ensured everything was done just as my daughter and her now husband desired. The photographer. Doug, was excellent with getting the right shots without being obtrusive. He was actually the opposite, so very friendly and affable. All the food was delicious and elegantly presented. One would be very fortunate to be able to schedule any event with this all inclusive venue. Can’t thank you enough Jon! Sincerely, Kathleen and Donald GaritySent on 09/06/2020
Zion Springs's reply:Thanks, Kathleen. It was a pleasure hosting your family and friends for a perfect weekend celebration. It was a especially satisfying after having to reschedule and wait five months due to COVID. We look forward to seeing you all again soon!

Absolutely perfect wedding experience!
Our daughter held her wedding at Zion Springs, and my wife and I couldn't have been more pleased. The rural Virginia scenery at the property is outstanding. The lodgings for the wedding party and parents were comfortable and clean, the food was outstanding (wood-fired pizzas, grilled lamb chops, charcuterie plates, bacon-wrapped scallops, shrimp, chicken, salmon, to name a few). The rehearsal dinner and wedding reception went very smoothly. Jon and Chris were excellent hosts and, with their staff, ran a very smooth operation. Jon was the perfect MC for the party and created the atmosphere for a great party. The planning for the wedding was spot on, thanks to Jon's detailed guidance, which we conscientiously followed, and we had no hitches whatsoever. We all had a great time and our guests had nothing but compliments. We all have lots of wonderful memories of the weekend. Many said it was the most fun wedding they had ever attended. We would agree. Our daughter told us it was the wedding of her dreams and everything she had hoped for. What more could be asked for? We highly recommend Zion Springs! We don't have any more daughters to be married but we would choose Zion Springs again without hesitation. By the way, this would be a great place to base a weekend of vineyard visits.Sent on 11/01/2019

A Wedding Weekend to Remember
What a beautiful weekend we had at Zion Springs. Jon and Chris were the perfect host and hostess and took the time to learn about the Bride and Groom. The entire staff worked seamlessly to ensure a wonderful reception. Our guest raved about the venue, the food and the atmosphere.( smores at the fire pit were a hit)Sent on 10/26/2019

A Dream Come True
Zion Springs was the perfect wedding experience. From the moment I had my first visit, to the morning I left there a married woman, the experience was flawless. After touring the facility for the first time, I left there trying to convince myself that any other place would work just a fine for the day of my dreams, but I soon would realize that nothing else I visited would even come close. When Zion Springs presented my husband and I with the chance to get married this December, at a promotional price, it was an offer we couldn't refuse. My nerves immediately went into overdrive, wondering how I could plan a wedding in less than 3 months. But it happened. And it was perfect. Everyone was outstanding, from my amazing event director, Lisa, my phenomenal services director, Daniel, my talented photographer, Doug, and the owner, Jon and his beautiful family, they all did everything they could to make the day a dream come true. The weather ended up perfect, which was also a significant plus for a December (outdoor) wedding! The hospitality was warming, the decorations beautiful, the food delicious, and the music POPPIN'. Zion Springs does it all but the wedding dress, and I would do it all over again if I could!Sent on 12/20/2019

Most Magical Weekend
Six weeks ago we began planning our wedding with Zion Springs. We had toured originally to book a wedding in 2020, but with some of the dates left open this year my fiancé and I took a second tour. After reassurance from Jon and his team, we ended up deciding on October 26, 2019. The process began with our Dream Dinner and gorgeous engagement photos where we had the most incredible food! We were introduced to Lisa, Doug, and Chris who explained how the next couple weeks would be full of decisions but such a smooth process. They weren’t lying! I had a meeting to make a design plan for the whole wedding with Lisa the following week. Every step of the way I had the support and expertise of the whole team! I cannot think of any other place I would have wanted to get married and this weekend exceeded my expectations. It truly was my dream wedding.
During the actual weekend, we had the most amazing food for every meal. Also, Doug and his team were there to capture all the moments from Friday to Sunday, and we ended the night we an amazing slideshow of some beautiful pictures from the day! We were able to have people spend time all night with us both Friday and Saturday nights, and Sunday morning. It was so special to have that extra time to catch up with friends and family out of town! Lisa made sure everything moved so seamlessly and we never felt rushed and truly got to enjoy every moment. If I could tell a future bride that your wedding planning can be done in a month, low stress, and turn out perfect, Lisa, Doug, and Jon can definitely take care of it! They truly made us feel so special and welcomed!

Zion Springs's reply:Amber -- You and Brandon take the award for the fastest turn-around in Zion Springs wedding history! Just five weeks from booking to your wedding day. You two proved that if you can make decisions, you can have an unforgettable experience by letting others take your ideas and execute them for you. It was an absolute pleasure hosting your friends and family here. We look forward to seeing you two again on your anniversary!

Ask for muffins.
We had our wedding just before Christmas, December 22nd. This date, at the time that we were first talking to Jon, fell a week after the end of their operating season. That’s correct. Jon Tigges and his entire family and everyone at Zion Springs delayed the start of their winter holiday to celebrate with us and make one of the most important events of our lives easily the most memorable one.Sent on 04/15/2019
Now, I’m clearly biased. I think it was the greatest and most beautiful wedding to which I’ve ever been, in no small part due to the tireless and infinitely, impossibly, gracious hosting done by every member of Zion Springs. Sure, it was our wedding. Of course we thought it was beautiful. But almost every guest there independently told us so as well. Just another day for Jon, Elise, Daniel, Chris and the whole crew.
That’s not to say that they were not on point, they were. They covered every detail imaginable, and they did so with casual confidence, a graceful ease that comes with successfully delivering on dreams hundreds of times. Yet they did so with a focus and presence in the moment that honored the preciousness of our event in a way that we didn’t even realize we wanted. To say that we were incredibly happy with the entire experience, is to put it mildly. Words fall short. We are forever grateful, and highly recommend visiting this majestic place as soon as you possibly can. Ask for muffins.

Absolutely magical venue!!
My sister and brother in law recently got married at Zion springs! The photos that I viewed of ZS didn’t do the actual venue justice! No wonder as soon as my sister in law laid eyes on the picturesque property and met some of the staff, she said ‘this is it’....and literally didn’t look anywhere else! Staff were wonderful as well as the owners/family. I’d go back in a heartbeat.Sent on 10/02/2019

Perfect weekend-long celebration
We got married here in September 2019 and loved every second! Having the entire property to ourselves for the weekend was a game changer, and something no other venue we looked at could offer. With all the other details that go into planning a wedding, having everything in one place (rehearsal dinner, getting ready for both bride and groom, ceremony, reception, after party, brunch the next day, the list goes on) was amazing. Our entire bridal party was able to stay on site for the whole weekend.Sent on 12/27/2019
Jon, Daniel, and the whole team were amazing and incredibly organized from start to finish. The food the entire weekend was great. The barn and areas around it are beautiful and we had a ton of options for taking pictures. The whole weekend was perfect but some highlights were:
- having all our guests come Friday night to socialize (great way to talk to more guests since the actual wedding will fly by
- the pizza!
- all the amazing staff that took care of us all weekend.

Amazing! Knocked it out of the park!
The first time I visited Zion Springs I knew I hit home. It was like everything I envisioned and true to my heart. I loved the beautiful rustic, country yet elegant vibe. I loved how it had stairs, a fire pit and such a chill and wonderful relaxed atmosphere. When we met the staff they all completely blew away our expectations and we just love all of the Zion Springs staff there. They are like family and Vinnie and I really enjoyed and are so thankful we met all of them. Anna makes the BEST food, Jon, Daniel, Elise, Doug and Chris were always very supportive and helpful throughout the entire process and really knew their stuff. We are so happy that our wedding glowed in everyone’s eyes. Our guests said it was the best wedding they ever went to and it makes us so happy :-). Chris makes amazing food too just like her daughter Anna! Chris made us a DELCIOUS sandwich lunch on the day of our wedding. I was thinking beforehand just we would get simple sandwiches but no they were basically do melt in your mouth sandwiches! I wish I had the recipe so I could make it for my husband. She made us a yummy perfect breakfast the day after that everyone raves about. It was a very homey feel. One of the very special things that Chris did was that she gave me a beautiful handkerchief which I used to wipe my happy tears away during the ceremony. I sadly lost it somehow but I will always remember Chris’s big heart. She even took time out of her day to help fix my flowers that were not looking so healthy from the vendor we used for personal flowers. Elise our wedding planner/coordinator went above and beyond to make sure everything was what we wanted with the day of schedule and all decorations. She brought laughter to our stressful days of wedding planning and helped calm my nerves about some stuff on the day of the wedding. Doug, our photographer who now is on staff with Zion Springs did AMAZING photos. A lot of my friends and family said they look like something that came out of a magazine. He is even working with us on doing more photos this month to capture some sunset photos and bridge photos that we didn’t have time to do on the wedding day. what an amazing guy! When I think of Zion Springs I look back and get tears in my eyes because of who the staff are, how generous, loving and supportive they are. It is hard to find people like that and on top of that the beautiful venue. It is literally the whole package. I loved all of the beautiful scenery photos you can take there. The beautiful river with the bridge, the hills, nature and tress, flower garden. Everywhere is like a sight of heaven. Thank you Zion Springs for everything and more ❤️.Sent on 10/14/2019

Zion Springs made the entire experience incredibly easy! They have a detailed process to make sure that no detail is forgotten and really work to make the day personal. Everything went incredibly smoothly, and they made the process so easy there was absolutely no stress.

My dream wedding come true
We loved the venue from the first visit. It was the first venue (of 5) we visited and we put down a deposit immediately for fear of losing our weekend. We did go see the other venues on our short list, but the other spots, while beautiful, just didn't match what ZIon Springs could offer us.Sent on 06/26/2019
Working with Elise (our wedding coordinator) was great - she nailed it (as I told her the day of). She worked with us on our design plan and really understand what we wanted and what our vision was. The stone patio and the barn looked absolutely amazing! And of course working with Jon on the overall weekend and Daniel on the food was great.
The food was SO good! I've been to weddings... and typically you are served dry beef and/or rubbery chicken. The food at ZS was delicious and our guests still compliment us about it! Kudos to the chef! The dream dinner and fall BBQ were really nice as they gave us a chance to sample the menu options and choose our wedding menu (it was a tough choice because everything we ate was delicious). The ability to bring our own alcohol (without a corkage fee) was also really helpful - I'm sure we saved a LOT of money working directly with Total Wine.
Another thing that we really loved about ZS was the B&B and the barn rooms - we were able to have our immediate families and members of the bridal party stay with us on site - so it was so much more than just a wedding reception... it was a weekend long celebration. Starting with the welcome on Friday afternoon, continuing through the rehearsal, and a group breakfast Saturday morning - it gave us time to really catch up with our families (who live all over the country) and gave our families a chance to get to know each other.
It may sound contrite, but the wedding was PERFECT. Everything I wanted. The venue is beautiful, the food was delicious, the reception was a blast (dancing all night long), followed by the fireside drinks and being able to catch up with friends and family before they left for the evening... I didn't want the night to end and I know our guests felt the same way. We still get compliments on what a great wedding it was (on so many details: the beautiful patio, the delicious food, the picture slide show to close the reception)... and it makes me smile because it was everything I ever hoped for.

Dream wedding come true!!
From the moment we arrived for our tour of Zion Springs, we knew we had found "home" to our wedding! Jon and the entire staff welcomed us like old friends and we felt right at home. They happened to have a spring date still available when we toured in December and without hesitation we booked an early May date. In a quick 6 months with the help of our FABULOUS coordinator Jenny, our dream wedding became a reality! We cannot say enough about how incredible Jenny was throughout the process, she truly went above and beyond in every was possible - from helping keep us on budget with our florals to entertaining our pup Max before the ceremony, she was spot on! If you have the opportunity to work with Jenny, you won't be disappointed! So often since our wedding day, family and friends have commented on how our wedding was one of the best they have ever attended and we can honestly say it's all thanks to the entire staff at Zion Springs and the magical day they create! Daniel and his staff were very attentive and so kind! Anna and the entire kitchen staff are MAGICIANS with their stills - the smoked Brisket is TO DIE FOR! We're so honored to consider everyone at Zion Springs like family now! Wish we could go back and relive that whole weekend over and over again. Thank you Zion Springs!!!!Sent on 05/08/2019

The best weekend ever!
It was a year ago that my husband and I invited the most important people of our lives to celebrate our marriage with us. For the event of the century, in our minds, the Tigges and the entire Zion Springs staff created a weekend that far exceed all those dreams I had as a little girl.
We went with the all inclusive package and it was a great decision for us. A wedding planner, THE wedding planner, was included. Elise was the best gift a bride could ask for; she brought all the ideas, laughs and non of the stress. Elise met with us several times and walked me through all the wedding tasks to ensure we had a prefect weekend. She was by our side through the entire weekend and I never had to answer a question because Elise had it all taken care of.
The catering crew was beyond top notch. We had phenomenal food and beverages all weekend long. You have to ask for the Short Ribs! The servers and bartenders made our guests feel like they were at a 5 star restaurant and took care of everything.
The photographer, Doug, is so great. He provides such a warm spirit and has an incredibly East going personality. Our photos captures all of the amazing moments we had hoped for and has helped us encapsulate memories we can look back in for a lifetime.
Our goal was to have family and friends walk away with the best time. We still get feedback from our guests about how amazing it was because of the venue, music, food and overall ambiance. A year later, my husband and I still talk about what an amazing time we had and how we’d give anything to go back and live that memory all over again!
If you’re looking for a wedding venue that will give you upscale service, an amazing venue with indoor and outdoor options, and a country, charming, and unforgettable experience, then you have to give Zion Springs a look! It was my first choice, my only choice, and a year later I still know it was the best choice!Sent on 04/11/2020

Best venue and amazing value!
From our very first visit, we were blown away with Zion Springs. It's not only a gorgeous venue (and getting better as they are constantly working to improve it), but the level of service and all that they offer are top notch, especially for the price. We not only had a wedding day, but an entire wedding weekend. Our friends and family were able to stay onsite the entire time, and we didn't feel rushed or stressed out by a crazy tight timeline. We also had the freedom to bring in whatever beer, wine, and liquor we wanted, which was very important to us as we had specific beers we wanted to serve (including a homebrew). No matter what we wanted to do, the team at ZS were willing to work with us to make it happen. It truly was our dream wedding!
Beyond the venue itself, the team is what truly make ZS such a wonderful place to get married. This is definitely a family business and we started to feel like part of the family from Day 1. Jon and Chris were so welcoming, and their daughter (Anna) is an exccellent chef. Our wedding meal was actually delicious (first time I have been to a wedding where I can say that). On top of that, Jon, Daniel, and Elise are the all-stars here. They were involved in helping us envision and plan our wedding more than a year before the big day. As it approached, they seemed to go into superhero mode, putting together all the details and executing the plan flawlessly. We had nothing to worry about with them in charge and I was WAYYY less stressed than I would have thought I'd be. Cannot thank them enough!
I HIGHLY recommend having your wedding here if you can find an open weekend on their schedule. They book up early and for good reason!!Sent on 12/28/2018

We had the most wonderful experience with Zion Springs. Elise was SO helpful in planning our big day and the entire Tigges family was great!

If you want your Special Event to be truly Special, look no further then Zion Springs! Owners and Hosts Chris and John Tigges have it down and down pat! We recently held a wedding with about 70 friends and family and it was marvelous. Having the Bed & Breakfast and additional rooms at The Barn on site made for a very convenient and comfortable stay, very much a friendship and family atmosphere! The Barn is a spacious and beautiful structure for any event. The outside patios, gardens, fire pit and kitchen – cooking BBQ and stone oven pizza – just make it all come together. There is even a space for inside dining, The Garden Room, where guests can gather afterwards. Attention to detail is what it’s all about at Zion Springs. The Staff are courteous and efficient all due to Cara who plans the events and Daniel who is the service manager. Breakfast, and plenty of it, is served up by Chief Anna who is wonderful at creating all the right Breakfast treats from eggs to waffles. We could not be happier with our time at Zion Springs and highly recommend this special, friendly and personal venue to anyone who wants to get away, enjoy a memorable event and just relax!

As a corporate event planner, I did not want to stress out over another event that I had to plan. Zion Springs was the first (and only) venue that we looked at. After meeting with Jon and his team, we knew that having our wedding at Zion Springs would be amazing. We made the big decisions (colors, flowers, cake, catering) and they handled the rest. We are both one of six siblings and we wanted to be able to share the entire weekend with our families, not just a couple of hours at the ceremony and reception. Elise was our wedding planner and she was the BEST! She handled all of the details and I didn't have to worry about anything. Everything was perfect! We (along with our guests) had the best time. We will be back for our anniversary.Sent on 06/05/2018

If we had the chance to re-do our wedding day, we would not change a thing. Everything from our very first tour of Zion with Jon, to the extraordinary wedding weekend was phenomenal. Our friends and family are still raving about how beautiful, FUN and delicious our wedding was! From the start, we got such a great vibe working with Jon and his family. Even the staff that is not actually family, is certainly treated like family – and they also made us feel like family while we were there. The entire team puts you at ease and makes the whole process of wedding planning a breeze. We worked extremely close with our remarkable and competent wedding planner, Elise, who managed to pull together exactly what we wanted, within our budget. We got married on 5/5/17 (Cinco de Mayo) and Zion really helped us to incorporate fun, yet very tasteful details into our special day. We had a happy hour before the ceremony serving margaritas and sangria and light food on the patio. It was a great way to set the mood for the rest of the evening, and allowed guests to greet each other and mingle. We had a photo booth with Cinco de Mayo-themed props. Anna even made churros from scratch to go along with our donut and ice-cream bar for dessert. They were beyond amazing and added an unexpected twist to the end of the night. I can’t mention the desserts without talking about the incredible meal Anna and team put together. So many guests said it was the best wedding meal they’ve ever had. One of the greatest perks at Zion is hosting an entire wedding weekend for your close friends and family who are lucky enough to stay on-site. We have so many wonderful memories from our rehearsal and day-of festivities. It was really special having everyone together for an extended period of time. The grounds, guest rooms, patios (with fire pits) and communal spaces were perfectly designed to host such events and it shows. I cannot recommend Zion Springs highly enough, I keep hoping we’ll get invited to another wedding there so we can experience it all over again.Sent on 02/11/2019

If I could give more stars to Zion Springs I would. Thinking about a venue in this area? Stop right now & make an appt to tour ZS. They have a stunning barn, 5-star overnight accommodations, & beautifully landscaped property. My husband Dave & I scheduled 3 venue visits in 1 weekend, with ZS being the 2nd venue. After our tour, Dave & I got in our car. At virtually the same time said, "we have to go back in and reserve this place. This is IT." We went back in & told owner Jon Tigges that we had to book at that very moment.----The 3-fold wedding experience (Dream, Design, & Deliver) that Jon & Chris Tigges, & coordinator Emily Tigges have created is truly unique; the planning and execution couldn't have gone any smoother. No detail was overlooked. A Smartsheet, face-to-face & "virtual" meetings, & emails flew back & forth between all of us. There was never a delay in their response time. We loved the on-site "free store" where you can use seemingly unlimited decorations from previous weddings (i.e. table runners, votives, chalkboards, tulle, wine barrels, etc...). What a money saver to borrow items & leave ones you purchased for your own wedding.---One of the additional perks of ZS is that you rent the venue from Friday @ noon to Sunday @ noon. There is no rush associated with executing & packing up your wedding in 6 or 8 hours. You and your on-site guests can enjoy a "home away from home" for the entire weekend. Emily & her team set up EVERYTHING and packed up after the event. I didn't lift a finger during set up or break down. Breakfasts were nothing less than scrumptious. Chris & team accommodated every kind of dietary request.---Now to ZS's catering: BEST wedding food. DON'T get any other caterer. Seriously. We had BBQ @ rehearsal dinner & wood-fired pizza for reception. Rich, Thad, & their incredible team worked seamlessly to deliver a truly delightful culinary experience.----Wanna know my only beef right now? Weddingwire won't let me write more. How rude.
