    Best Venue for a summer wedding

    The Whistlebear venue was the first venue that my wife and I looked at. We immediately fell in love with the venue. We did out due diligence and looked at about 15 venues afterwards. However, nothing compared to Whistlebear and we booked the Rose Room at the venue. Leah was our sales consultant and we worked with her to plan everything out. She was super professional, very responsive, and helped to ensure that everything was ready before the big day. Hailey was our coordinator on the big day and she made sure to ensure that everything ran smoothly. There were no hiccups on the day because of all of the work completed by Hailey, Leah, and the rest of the Whistlebear staff. All of our guests loved the Whistlebear venue. We had a great wedding at the outdoor venue. Everyone loved looking out over the rolling golf hills while enjoying the delicious appetizers. The property was gorgeous and we captured a lot of great photos. The salad, dinner, dessert and the mid night buffet were delicious! The bar service and dance were spectacular and everyone loved hanging out on the outdoor patio. My wife, our guests, and myself were so happy with the Whistlebear venue and all of the staff there.

    Amazing!!!

    We were married at Whistle Bear Golf Club on June 30, 2019 and cannot say enough amazing things about our experience with the staff, the service, the food, the venue, etc.

    Our day was absolutely perfect and we owe a huge thanks to Nikki, Melinda and Katie for that. We received so many compliments from our guests about how amazing the service, the food and the venue was. Everyone was asking how we found this venue and that it was the nicest wedding venue they had been to. The staff was so great and they all played a huge part in making our day come together so seamlessly. :)

    An Unforgettable Day!!!

    My husband & I felt completely spoiled & well looked after leading up to and on our big day. The WB team is SUPER wonderful, warm, and kind, and looked after every detail so our day went so smooth. All of our guests raved about the beautiful location, the garden chapel, and the food. Bring your fat pants because the food is out of this world. The chefs are incredible and will accommodate every food intolerance with ease. I cannot say enough good things about Leah, Melinda, Mikaela and the team. What a wonderful day!!!

    5 Stars, first class

    My wife and I booked with Whistle Bear a few years back and unfortunately my wife fell ill with what we believe to be Lyme disease. We had to post-pone our wedding several times, sometimes only being able to give a few months notice. Our journey with Whistle Bear started out with Nikki, who is now upper management, and she is a complete rockstar. Her and the Whistle Bear team decided to support us and stick with us on our journey and instead of pocketing our deposit they invited us back each time for what turned into 3-4 menu tastings! The business world today is all about hitting targets, year over year growth, numbers etc so I am even more impressed now by what Whistle bear did for us. This really speaks to the first class organization that Pearl Entertainment is and they should be proud of the culture they have instilled from the top down.

    Our guests really invest a lot of time and money to celebrate the day with us which is why it was important to my wife and I to make it a great experience for them as well. Even if Whistle Bear did not do everything mentioned above for us we would still highly recommend getting married at Whistle Bear. We had overwhelming feedback from our guests that it was the nicest wedding they have ever attended. From the great food (not your typical wedding food, truly a higher end experience), high attention to detail, tremendous service, beautiful venue with incredible architecture, wood beams, stone work, landscaping, the pavilion option for the ceremony, hotels close by, it truly provides all the ingredients for a perfect day and all at a great value.

    Whistle Bear has made raving fans out of us!

    Get married at Whistle Bear!

    Our wedding day was amazing!
    We made the best decision ever to have our wedding at Whistle Bear, so many of our guests were blown away! We have heard so many compliments about the staff being so friendly and helpful, the venue is stunning, and everyone loved the food!

    The coordinators helped us lead the way through the process from the very beginning, and their prompt replies put us at ease. They think about EVERY detail, so we didn’t have to worry about missing something.

    Our day-of Concierge and Maître-De were a dream team, thank you for taking care of us and making us feel so special!
    They went above and beyond, they were always there if we needed anything and all I can do is smile looking back on that day!
