First of all, the castle is absolutely spectacular! The whole ambiance that surrounds the castle is simply out of a fairytale. Decorating is certainly not necessary. The castle itself is the decoration. I think we spent less than 5% of our budget on flowers and décor.
Also, the castle staff are amazing. I must admit that I did not see much of the inner workings of what was going on, but isn't that the point? I spent time with my bridesmaids in the fabulous bridal suite and my every whim was catered to. When I emerged and saw the castle ready for our wedding I was speechless! It was everything (and more) that I had been dreaming about!
Brides - if you want that fairytale wedding that you have been dreaming about, then the only place to do it is Castle Ladyhawke! :)

This venue is beautiful, and the staff is very helpful. Our guests couldn't stop raving about the place, and all hated to go home!

Castle Ladyhawke is an amazing place to get married. The owner was there for me EVER time I called. She was never in a hurry to get me off the phone, no matter how long we talked. We were able to visit the castle many, many times before the wedding. The staff went above and beyond to make our day the best day ever. The castle is magnificent. The pictures do not give the true view of this place. Every room is huge, the view is breath taking (and I live in the mountains). We had 75 guest and everyone was amazed and overwhelmed by the castle and the staff. The guest were so scattered, it looked like only a few people were there - until the ceremony. Ever guest had full range to roam the castle WITHOUT an attendent following them around. The only decorations that we put out was the centerpieces for the tables during the reception. Everything else was already there and looked very "rich". Everyone should see the Dragon Room. The spiral staircase is the most beautiful thing that I have ever seen.
The staff worked hard to keep us calm. All we had to do was LOOK like we needed something, and someone was there wanting to know what we needed and they did this for every guest. They have valet parking, so when the guest pulled up, there was not the clutter of cars everywhere, just the castle. We stayed the night in the castle with several of our guest, and it was best night of our lives. We felt very secure there even thou it was "just us" that night. It was like it was us and the stars and that nothing else in the world existed. We are already planning our 10 year anniversay back there.
We looked at several other places to have our wedding. Several were less expensive, but not one of the others gave us the attention that Castle Ladyhawke gave us. When you rent the castle, YOU ARE THE ONLY EVENT GOING ON THAT DAY. You have their full attention all day and all evening. Our guest left when they were ready to leave. No one was packing up chairs and making them feel like it was "time to leave".
They are well worth the price. I would HIGHLY recommend Castle Ladyhawke and we will use them again for other gatherings.

This place is amazing! I wanted a wedding at a place that people would remember. This was it. It was gorgeous inside and out. The owner is so helpful, pleasant, and sweet. I would recommend this to anyone that wants a gorgeous outside wedding. Absolutely loved everything about it.
