    Great Venue!

    The location itself was perfect. Our guests were very impressed with the atmosphere, the food, and the beverages. Our tasting was a special experience in itself, with great service and a really pleasant afternoon. The spa was a lovely way to spend a girls night the evening before, although it is extremely expensive for the quality of services we received. I would also recommend that you do not even consider getting your makeup done there - I had such a bad experience that I'm glad it was a trial. Literally lipstick on my face in places that were not my lips.
    That said, the venue was amazing. Full stop. Perfect for us.

    Pillar and post was just what we were looking for. Rustic. The staff were accommodating, helpful and on point with the food. The food was exquisite. The servers did an amazing job and the wedding coordinator was extremely helpful.

    Both the staff and location were truly fantastic. While we had a series of event coordinators, we were well transitioned from one to the next in the year leading to the wedding, and we always knew who we could contact with a question, and we always received quick and helpful responses. In particular, Lorraine, was a godsend in the year leading up to the wedding. On the weekend of the wedding, Kristi was a fantastic help from beginning to end. If we had a question or concern, she was on top of it right away. Truly a cut above in both quality of food and venue, as well as fast and courteous service.

    We had an amazing time at our wedding at the Pillar and Post. The staff was there for us every step of the way and were always eager to answer questions and provide any information we needed. The packages included everything we needed and we didn't need to use a lot of outside vendors. Pricing and the contract process was super clear with no surprises. On the day of, things could not have been smoother. Katie and the team had everything covered. The food was amazing. The service was amazing. All of our guests loved the quality of the food, accommodations and the location. Everything about it was pretty much perfect and we look forward to visiting the Pillar and Post when we are able to enjoy the amenities of the hotel as guests, as we missed out at the wedding as we were too busy.
