The most magical place to say I do!
Intimate and beautiful venue
Highly do not recommend
Apparently the venue had been running at 56-person capacity the entire time during Stage 3 when I booked but the lady never told me, and instead told me the 100 people I planned on seating was fine. I wasn't told until half a year later that the 100 people that they said I could have should have been chopped down to 56 and it INCLUDED VENDORS, and even during Stage 3 of the reopening act. The catering staff, photogapher etc basically took up 10/56 so I am left with only 46 guests. Minus my bridal party and family, I am down to about 10 friends.
I was then told that people were not allowed to drink and eat in the courtyard/backyard as the first lady had originally told me, so that means everyone needed to stay indoors during cocktail hour while the room was being flipped. They then told me people are not allowed to remove their masks when inside the building other than dining hall, meaning no eating or drinking at ALL even if stationary (even water, which I specifically asked was an exception). These were only some of the problems that they brought up to me 6 months later. My second choice venue at this point was already fully booked for the month we wanted and nothing in a comparable price range was available.
I know that people have experienced worser during the pandemic, however I believe the problems that I faced could have been avoided had the staff been better informed. Had they just told me all the restrictions that had been in place since the start of Covid and Stage-3 upfront, I could have had more options in hiring other venues before it was now too late.
I would not wish this experience upon any bride or groom out there; so best wishes to all the newly engaged couples. No bride wants to spend nights and nights trying to find a new venue last minute; and yes, with months left that is last minute. The Heintzman House lady thought that having months was still plenty time; and as per my research and experience, proper venues are fully booked for weddings at least a year in advance.
Beautiful summer venue
Great Experience With First Birthday Party
Christine is very friendly, professional, and accommodating, and we have nothing bad to say about the experience. If we were to do our wedding again we would definitely pick the Heintzman House!
