    Perfect day from start to finish.

    I’m a chef so I’m going to keep this short, but I have been in the industry for almost 20 years now so I have a bit of experience. You guys did not miss a beat from start to finish we felt perfect on site, there was never an uncomfortable moment.
    The place looked great
    The service was great
    The guests are still talking about the food and venue, 3 weeks later. Bravo doctors house, excellent job, sad to say this is a once in a lifetime endevour, unfortunately we probably won’t be back.

    Beautiful Venue, Awesome Food

    The Doctor's House is a beautiful venue. We held our wedding ceremony on the outdoor lawn near the gazebo, which was a gorgeous setting for our special moment. We had our reception inside the Country Fare room. We were also very grateful to hold the chapel as a plan B in case of poor weather, although we didn't end up needing it. In general, the staff were all very friendly and helpful.

    We did have one issue in which, our guests were not allowed access to the bar during our outdoor cocktail hour, as per our agreed upon bar package and schedule. At the time, my husband and I were not aware of this issue since we were off taking pictures. However, our guests were not allowed to enjoy cocktails during cocktail hour, which was very disappointing. By the time the issue was realized, the manager had to step in but it was already time for the reception to begin. During dinner, the bar was supposed to be closed while we had wine service at the tables. In order to make up for denied bar access during the cocktail hour, they allowed the bar to stay open during dinner instead. While we appreciate this gesture, it was still very frustrating to learn after the event that guests did not have access to the bar during the heat of cocktail hour.

    There was another slight inconvenience regarding flexibility of bringing in third-party vendors (DJ/MC/live guitarist). In order to do so, we had to pay an additional $900 fee. Furthermore, because of the house audio setup, we had to pay an additional mixer fee in order to allow live music. Also, the same PA system was used outdoors for the ceremony as well as indoors for the reception (i.e. no time for a second sound check), the music during our first dance was very distorted.

    Other than these issues, most everything else went smoothly. Dinner courses were paced appropriately and bused as needed. The food was absolutely delicious and deserves the highest praise! The bartender was also very helpful and professional. In particular, we had a few special drinks that were provided for guests with special needs and the bartender was great at making sure these arrangements were provided without misleading the rest of the room to think special drinks were available to everyone.

    Katy was our venue coordinator and was very helpful planning the event. We were particularly happy for her suggestion to use the venue's newly renovated day-of bridal suite, which was much nicer than the original room we were booked to use.

    One of the highlights of the venue was our honeymoon suite immediately following the reception. This room is super conveniently located a short walk away from the Country Fare room (near the parking lot) and was a beautiful suite with many amenities (chocolate covered strawberries and champagne, snacks, bath tub, fireplace, etc.). Our only regret is that we had so little time to enjoy the room.

    All and all, with exception to the few issues explained above, we were very happy with our choice of venue.

    Best Day Ever!

    The Doctor's House was very accommodating to our needs, budget, guests and vendors. Our guests raved about the quality and quantity of food, not to mention the service was impeccable. Hailey made the planning process and the day flow smoothy, going above and beyond to meet our requests. I would highly recommend this venue!

    Worst Vendor I had to deal with

    I guess my opinion of the doctor’s house started going downhill when I was given an incompetent coordinator named Hailey. Throughout the whole experience planning our big day with her, she would constantly forget things that we already sent to her, such as our choices for hors d’oeuvres, specially ordered wines, etc. Even up until the final bill, it took so many revisions because she kept leaving things out. I tried to stay patient and polite with her, as I know it is a busy season and she has multiple weddings to deal with. Might I add that it was also impossible to reach her- because she only worked half the week, and it would take emails, phone calls, and voicemails before we can get a hold of her. However, she still managed to screw up our vegetarian option on my wedding day. I had sent her the final menu multiple times – the vegetarian option being the Zucchini boat, not the vegetarian wellington – which they ended up making on our wedding day. Since I ordered the vegetarian option myself, I immediately realized that they had made the wrong order when they served me the wrong option. Hailey at first denied her mistake, but when I told her I had emails to prove that this is not what I ordered, the kitchen started making the correct vegetarian orders. This resulted in all the vegetarian meals being delayed, some up to 30mins versus the standard meal being served – meaning the standard meal people finished eating before the vegetarians got their meals. I also had over 10+ people tell me steak was overcooked. Them messing up the vegetarian option was probably the biggest thing that angered me, as it was fully within their control, but they also failed to give us back the rest of the wedding cake.
    What made this experience so much worse was that the would not own up to their mistake. When I told the managers about our experience after, they said that the vegetarians only had to wait 7minutes for their food, and that they did wrap the cake. Obviously I did not believe them, and after even heading back to the venue to watch this so called video they had proof of, they were not able to show it to me, but instead sent me a few screenshots with a time stamp on them. It was laughable because I could see in their screenshot, the two vegetarians at a table having their arms crossed, staring blankly in the air while the rest of the table ate. This was the shot they claimed where “vegetarian option was served.” They also showed a screenshot of our cake being wrapped – but it was never brought out of the kitchen to us, and no one had told us its whereabouts the night of (we stayed over at a bridal suite as well) or the morning after when we checked out.
    I could not believe that such a popular venue would have such horrible customer service. They obviously do not have competent coordinators, and do not care about their customers after the full bill has been paid. For the rest of my life, I will remember that on my wedding day, because of the failure of the doctor’s house, we’ve not only had unhappy guests, but I had to pay a few hundred dollars extra to keep our videographer there longer, because the whole schedule was delayed as the MCs had to wait for all the meals to be served before continuing with the rundown. So I warn the brides out there – while this is indeed a gorgeous venue, do you want to risk getting the wrong food, bad food, or have your entire schedule be ruined because of the venue’s inability to do their job?

    Best day of our lives!

    We knew from the minute we saw the chapel and lush gardens The Drs. House was where we'd say our "I do's".

    We really cannot say enough great things about how flawlessly executed the whole day was, as well as leading up to the big day. From the food, meticulous grounds, ceremony coordination - the entire day was an absolute dream.

    This wouldn't have been made possible with our wedding coordinator, Sonia, who has incredible attention to detail and ensured all our planning came to life through the decor, speeches, first dances, etc.. Thank you for everything!!
