Dreamy wedding venue!
Despite the golf course not being closed to the public, the whole wedding ceremony and reception still felt very private.
Working with Joni during the planning phase was smooth and easy, and on the day-of, Diksha and Justin worked seamlessly with our coordinator to make the day (and night) go smoothly without a single obstacle. The food was DELECTABLE - we weren't able to do a tasting ahead of time so we were a little bit worried that we didn't know what the quality would be like -but have no fear, the banquet chef is phenomenal (very different from the food in the pub at the clubhouse). Our guests still talk about how good it was (and a year later, the groom still talks about the scalloped potatoes!).
If you want a peaceful, natural setting for a ceremony and a fun, delicious, and majestic reception, UGC will certainly deliver! 10/10 would recommend.
Beautiful venue & Amazing Service
Incredible! Absolutely incredible!
Professional, Flexible and Great Value
Value - UGC included just about every wedding necessity: sit down tables, stand up tables, tablecloths, flowers & candles for table decorations, sprinkles, microphones, red carpet, chairs for the outside gazebo area (and even a sofa set for the reception room!) so we really didn't need to coordinate with many other vendors. The outdoor ceremony area is amazing - the trellis and bridge leading up to the gazebo and the stream all around, made this the perfect venue we didn't know existed.
Joni and the entire staff (Patrick was our banquet captain) were attentive and made sure we had food (I think in just about every photo that I was in, I had food in my mouth/hand) and kept all our guests happily fed and in high spirits.
Looking back, I would've asked my day of wedding coordinator/friend to make sure the microphones were set up in both the reception room and the gazebo area and test out the sound system beforehand, the music at the gazebo area was a little quiet so we were a bit hesitant to start walking down the aisle not knowing if the processional music had started or not and have the drinks menu printed separately so guests can see what drinks' options they have easier. We probably should've also asked to have two bartenders instead because it was so hot.
Overall, we couldn't be happier and considered ourselves extremely lucky being able to have our wedding and cocktail reception here. Lots of thanks to Joni and the team at UGC!
Excellent wedding venue!
Joni, the event coordinator at UGC, was so helpful, and she was so organized when we met with her a month and a half before our wedding. She answered every question that we emailed her, and she responded in a timely manner every time. Joni was very accommodating with any requests that we had. We appreciated this very much. She was an absolute pleasure to work with!
In regards to the venue itself:
- We loved the gazebo, and the beautiful path/walkway down to it, and the bridge. It was a very picturesque and romantic spot to get married. The red carpet was a nice touch as well.
- The Salons room made for a beautiful reception room.
- The whole venue was very well kept and maintained.
- The food and beverage menus were impressive and well priced. It was nice having many meal options to choose from, and the variety of dishes was excellent!
- The food was excellent! A lot of our guests commented on how good it was.
- It was really nice to attend their annual tasting event as well.
We can’t say enough good things about UGC, and we will be sure to recommend them to anyone and everyone. Thanks, again!
