My wedding planner was absolutely amazing and everything went perfect. I didn't have to worry about anything and I was relaxed and was able to enjoy myself on my big day. Prices are reasonable and lots of perks for booking. I got my hair/make up done on sight and also rented a villa room which made getting ready with my girls easy.
so worth it!
Absolutely loved this venue. Amazing people and beautiful landscaping.
Arden Hills Resort is a beautiful paradise for anyone longing for an exotic, romantic ceremony and elegant reception. The journey to the altar can be difficult at times but the staff from start to finish are there for you! They answered all my questions, took my family on countless tours so I could show them, and we're all very friendly. I would suggest getting an outside day-of coordinator because once my reception started my day-of coordinator that came with the Arden Hills package I purchased was no where to be found. So when it came to cake cutting(we couldn't find a knife), getting the sparklers ready(didn't know where they were or the lighters), and other little things I found myself, mom and others having to talk with the serving staff in order to get things done. At one point I was down on my hands and knees going through all our stuff under the tables looking for sparklers instead of enjoying our reception. However, the ceremony went off without a hitch and Shannon came to the rescue whenever we needed her! Overall the experience was definitely five stars worthy, the food was amazing, the staff was friendly, and it was the wedding of our dreams.
I fell in love with Ardenhills from the moment I stepped foot on the property. The grounds are beautiful and they have three beautiful rooms to choose from for the reception. There are 2 options for the ceremony as well. The food was fantastic and the employees were super accomadating the day of the event. Shannon Hall was my wedding coordinator and she was superb. She always called me right back and did whatever she could to give my the dream wedding. However, when I originally signed the contract we signed for 130 guests- we were told by their sales department that they could accomidate us at that number in the room we wanted. But when I first met with Shannon she said that it would be a very tight squeeze and might not happen. luckily we had enough guests that couldnt make the wedding we could still be in the room we signed the contract for. All in all I loved my wedding venue, many of my guests said it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. Another plus was for signing the contract when we did, we got a free nights stay at the bed and breakfast on the property. This worked out well, I used it the day before and my bridesmaids and I stayed there and all got ready together. I would recommend Ardenhills to any bride looking for an outdoor wedding.
Everything went great with Kathy and Shannon. They were awesome and accomodating with the requests my husband and I wanted for our reception. We wanted to change the order and add a few things (we had Mariachis). We also wanted our DJ/MC to lead the way in the next set of events. These ladies are awesome and sweet! The only drawback is not having enough time for a longer reception. Other than that, we had a really nice experience.
This was the second venue we went to and there was no need to look for another place. It really has an upscale look to it since the moment you drive into the parking lot. The Palm trees give it a feeling of been on an unforgetable vacation. Truly over the top magnificent!
We were on a budget for our wedding and found that Arden Hills Resort Club & Spa allowed us to have a beautiful wedding ceremony & reception while staying true to our budget.
We had our event on a Sunday evening, which already saved us on the ceremony site and reception hall rental fees.
All of the staff, from the sales manager (Sandra) to the event coordinator (Courtney) to the waiting servers, were incredible. They are all really there to go beyond your expectations. During our event, they continually checked on us, the bride & groom, the wedding party, the VIPs, and ALL of our guests, throughout the evening.
Thanks Arden Hills... you rock!
We had our ceremony and reception at Arden Hills and it was amazing. The venue was beautiful, the staff were friendly & professional, the food was great, and everything went off without a hitch! Because the venue was so beautiful, I didn't need to spend a lot of money on ceremony flowers or reception decorations. The wedding coordinator was also a huge help.
We stayed at the on-site B&B for our wedding night and it was a great experience. Temperpedic mattress,gorgeous room, delicious breakfast!
This is a top notch venue!
I had my wedding at Arden Hills Resort on 09/22/2012. Let me say WOW this place was amazing! We had an absolute amazing night and will have WONDERFUL memories. I am not sure if I can do another review on the coordinator so I will do it on here. I had Shannon Hall as my coordinator and man oh man did she make my life and my mothers life easy to plan this wedding! We did majority of our decorations ourselves and budgeted as much as we could! (i.e., instead of renting table cloths bought our own for half price, etc) and Shannon was completly cool with it and let us bring in whatever stuff we wanted/needed to make our night wonderful! One suggestion however is if you have time double check your reception table #'s, this wasn't a HUGE deal and really was the only mishaps I noticed, they mixed up 2 of our table numbers and my family ended up sitting alone and on the complete opposite side and then our friends who's table it got mixed with ended up sitting alone on the other side. Other than that everything was perfect! Got tones of complimants on the food and service, tones of complimants on the venue (we chose the villa gardens ceremony spot and the heritage room for reception) Arden Hills gives you a great foundation to make the places your own beautiful day! Loved it here and would recommend! This place is a little expensive,..BUT you get what you pay for and we defenitly got the best of the best service!!! Thank you Shannon and thank you Arden Hills :)
I had my reception here and it was beautiful!!! The location is already beautiful as it is =) The service was excellent by my coordinator and some others. The quality of the food was just alright, I did have some complaints in this area. Other than that it was just how I wanted it.
Great service! From assisted planning to reliable service, I would refer this venue~ !
This place is absolutely gorgeous. Very pretty to take pictures and stuff....
Arden Hills is an absolutely beautiful place to have a wedding! The staff is so helpful and the food is excellent! Shannon, our wedding coordinator, was especially helpful in making our wedding so wonderful!
First off Shannon and Kathy are awesome! I am really pleased with how accommodating they were knowing my situation. Every meeting went very well and when it came to the day of our wedding we had NOTHING to worry about. Cant wait to host another function at Arden Hills!!!
The food was fantastic - from the appetizers to the main course - yummy, yummy, yummy! The only complaint is that no one was around when we wanted to cut the cake. We had to hunt down the servers. Other than that, the food was great!
Arden Hills is a beautiful location and the layout of the venue is what sold us the moment we saw it. They were very easy and flexible to work with in the planning process. However, on our big day, they did not "shine" as I had anticipated they would. I am one of those meticulously detailed personality types, and I thought that my venue planner, Shannon was the same. Well, let's just say I am more detailed. The staff and venue are great, but if they have more than one event going on the same day, some of the finer details and one-on-one attention goes missing. Had it not been for my fabulous bridesmaids and brother, the wedding would have started off with a fizz instead of a bang. Overall, my day was great, but it could have gone more smoothly in the beginning if my planner did not have other events to attend to on that day. The planners at Arden I've discovered are more facilitators than day-of planners. If you are not detail oriented, or have anyone in your wedding party that is, hire a day-of coordinator if you select Arden Hills. It will give you that extra attention you deserve for your special day. The food, however, is EXCELLENT!
We were very pleased with the service that was provided from Arden Hills. They helped us from start to finish knowing our situation. I couldnt have asked for better service and people to work with! I love Arden Hills and am hoping to be about to use them in the future!!!
Very beautiful location
Our wedding at Arden Hills turned out to be so beautiful. The outdoor courtyard and Gold Room accomodated our large guest list (220) and all the existing flowers required little extra decoration. Our wedding coordinator, Shannon Hall, was so friendly and accomodating and ensured that the day ran smoothly. The main drawback was that it is a country club and the venue restricted access to most of the property which limited photo opportunities. Our guests seemed very happy with the food and service.
