    We had both our ceremony and reception at the guild - the gazebo was a beautiful space and the reception area and patio was perfect for the cocktail hour and reception. Everything ran very smoothly the day of. All the staff was very helpful and approachable. Our food was ... View more delicious and the bartenders were great! Francesca was very responsive to all our emails from the beginning and any concerns brought up were addressed (the groom and a few guests had severe anaphylactic allergies and the guild was very accommodating!) Thank you again for a perfect day! Highly recommend.

    The Guild Inn Estates venue is absolutely beautiful, and it was exactly what we were looking for. To start, we ended up booking the Guild Inn Estates for our September 8th, 2017 wedding, and couldn’t have been happier with the process from start to finish. We ended up booking ... View more booking Hall D with Francesca (Director of Special Events) for our wedding. We were extremely impressed with how professional and responsive she was. Throughout the course of our wedding planning, we must have asked over 100 questions and got answers to all of them in a matter of hours, and even in some cases, minutes. When you book your wedding, make sure to go to her. In terms of the wedding day, our day of coordinator Elizabeth(who was assigned to us by the venue) was amazing. She ensured we had everything we needed throughout the course of the day and worked very closely with all of our vendors. Additionally the food was great and we have to give a BIG shout out to the service staff (especially in the bar), who made sure everyone was having a great time!

    Loved my wedding at the Guild Inn Estate. It is a state of the art, picture perfect venue. The food was delicious. We had 2 late night stations a smores bar and donut bar. Our guests LOVED them. We couldn't be happier with our decision to have our reception here. The staff we're ... View more we're awesome, very professional and went above and beyond to make sure our night was perfect. Would definitely recommend The Guild Inn Estate.

    We booked at the Guild Inn when it was in its pre-construction phase, so we were very apprehensive as to how our wedding would turn out -- but our fears were unfounded as this place was amazing! First off, the location is beautiful - the park is a great place to take photos, and ... View more the venue has capitalized on the atmosphere by having floor to ceiling windows that make you feel like you are outside (also the patio was a huge hit). Second, the staff is superb. Our wedding coordinator, Francesca, was available to us whenever we needed, and her response time was fantastic. I always felt heard! Third, the day itself was awesome! The staff was super attentive to our needs, and the food was amazing (we had multiple guests come up to us and say that they've never had so much food at a wedding before!). To be honest, my only regret was that I was too full to try the sundae bar! Our wedding ran incredibly smoothly, and we only have the staff at the Guild to thank! My new hubby and I had the best time at the Guild Inn, and I would highly recommend this venue!

    The venue itself is GORGEOUS. You will be happy with the wedding photos. The venue also fits any number of people. So in terms of the venue, 5 stars! Now lets get to the bad stuff. Dealing with this venue was like PULLING HAIR. I had my wedding in the first couple months that the ... View more venue opened, so maybe they haven't figured out their kinks yet. I had Jennifer as my coordinator, and her response rate was terrible. We're talking a couple weeks, and sometimes she just doesn't reply. She would give you one sentence answers, and would not go the way to be helpful. When she was drafting up our invoice, she over-charged us by $3,000. If I had not looked at the invoice in detail, I would've just paid it without knowing. CHECK EVERYTHING. Also, make sure you negotiate everything prior to signing and have EVERYTHING documented in emails and on your banquet order form. Many details which she said she would do were not executed the day of. If you do not have something documented they will go back on their word, or charge you for it after you've signed the contract. For how expensive this venue is, I expected a higher level of customer service and professionalism from the coordinators. Unless you're hiring a wedding planner, or have a high tolerance for incompetent people, I would not suggest this venue. Just take photos in the park and hold your wedding elsewhere.
