Our dream wedding
Michelle is amazing and it was so nice to work with her, and Jame the chef is UNREAL! Everyone loved the food!!
My husband and I can’t wait to go back! We have decided every year we will go back for weekend on our wedding anniversary!
The briars gave my husband and I our dream wedding!
They saved our wedding!!
Gorgeous Venue and Excellent Staff
The food was delicious, even though my wife and I didn't get a chance to get a lot of it as we were non-stop running around! Our guests mentioned they really enjoyed the main dining meals, hors d'oeuvres and drinks. Depending on your bar package that you select, there may be limited variety of liquors so make sure to double check with the venue before you choose your package.
The bridal suite was great, there is a sink and plenty of natural light, coffee table and couches around. However, it would've been nice to have a bathroom stall available as well, as people had to change in the public bathroom next door. A few of us had to use the accessible restroom to change/freshen up - not a huge deal though just not so much privacy. It would also be nice to have a hook or a rack for keeping our dresses/suits/change of clothes organized and easy for changing/steaming. They gifted us chocolate dipped strawberries which was a nice touch. It would be nice if there was larger mirror (full length would be ideal) and more counter space or table to place stuff on.
We had a wonderful time at the Guild Inn. We would highly recommend the venue to anyone looking for a beautiful space to get married or hold any special event. The space and public park behind the venue is really special and the staff was excellent and accommodating. Thank you Guild Inn all your effort this past year with helping make our special day feel perfect.
Great Wedding Venue
Beautiful, do your due diligence
Beautiful Wedding done Ourselves
The wedding planner was no help at all. She was unable to keep things we had talked about many times straight and the day before the wedding she told me she was glad I had done everything ourselves because she had a more important golf banquet the next day.
Honestly our day was perfect, the Venue gave us excellent pictures that we cherish and we had a ton of fun at the Summer House. This was all done and arranged by ourselves however, The Briars really did not help with much, and we just found the wedding coordinator completely unhelpful and inept at her job.
June 2017 Wedding at the Briars
