Cheryl is amazing!
Due to circumstances, we had to cancel our 2020 wedding. BUT, we had an entire wedding weekend planned at Old Orchard Inn & Spa. Cheryl, the Events & Wedding Account Manager is fabulous to work with. From the very beginning she made the wedding planning experience so stress-free. Old Orchard Inn is a MUST see if you're looking for a wedding venue. It was the first one we looked at and Cheryl had us completely sold. I know that if we had been able to do our large wedding there, the day would have gone smoothly. As the main contact for our wedding planning, she was an excellent reflection of the service at Old Orchard Inn.Sent on 28/07/2020

The Old O was everything we could have hoped for and more! The venue was beautiful, everything went as planned! They did an excellent job at communicating with us throughout the entire planning phase. Better yet the wedding planner employed by the Old O works in house, she is very knowledgeable and just all around a wonderful lady! The entire staff at the venue was professional and friendly. We really can't say enough how glad we were that we chose the Old O for our special day.Sent on 18/01/2020

Everything That a Bride Could Wish For
I cannot say enough good things about the Old Orchard Inn, and I don’t think anyone anywhere had a better wedding experience than we did!
My husband and I got married there November 2nd, 2019, and because we were only engaged for two months before getting married, there was a lot to do with extremely little time. My husband and I were a little lost about where to start, but the Wedding coordinator Cheryl Nauss went above and beyond and helped walk us through and even provided a few solid resources to help us get the ball rolling. She and the staff were beyond accommodating and supportive to us and our families, from start to finish. (The mindset seemed to be “whatever you need to make this work, we’re here to help!” (And those are magical words to a stressed-out bride)!) Even the staff who weren’t directly involved with the wedding itself knew who were were, and treated us, our families, and friends with so much kindness, and were so sweet and excited for us! I recall Cheryl and two other members of hotel staff standing by the doors up until the last seconds before my dad and I walked down the aisle, helping me to straighten the train to my dress and veil and reminding me to breathe lol!
The venue was beautiful and exactly what we had hoped for. And the food was... Oh my goodness, wow, the FOOD was Really delicious. (The restaurant has since become our regular venue for special family dinners now).
Weddings are supposedly the the most stressful event of your whole life, and without being too cliche, ours was a magical and totally wonderful experience with minimal stress thanks to the maximum support we had!
Big fans of the Old Orchard Inn, highly recommend!!!

Two thumbs way up
We were married October 24th 2018 in a full moon handfasting on a Wednesday evening. The ceremony took place in the Fierside lounge with reception immediately following in the blomidon room.Sent on 15/02/2019
We were looking for a very intimate, yet all inclusive venue and the Old Orchard Inn had everything we were looking for.
Our ceremony was nothing short of magic and went off without a hitch. Cheryl Nauss was a huge help and an asset to us throughout the planning process. She answered the many questions we had and helped with all the fine tuning that went into making our day everything we'd dreamed of with minimal stress. The staff in every department were wonderful. Friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. There was much flexibility when it came to decor, time lines, and catering. I had my nails done away the O Spa and was very happy with them. We stayed in the King suit which was a wonderful room with a view of our gorgeous Valley. The venues it self is rustic and intimate and romantic.
We were very happy with every aspect of our dealings with the Old Orchard Inn & Spa and highly recommend them as a wedding venue.
