This venue is perfect for outdoor weddings and just beautiful for the indoor reception. The employees were very helpful and even when faced with small glich they worked it out so that I did not notice! Would recommend this venue to anyone!
I had a "gothic horror film" themed wedding at Chateau Pomije. The staff was amazing, food was good. The atmosphere was the best. It is a must for any size wedding.
The entire venue is absolutely gorgeous, and actually reasonably priced, compared to other comparable venues in the area. The staff is sometimes pushy and lacks tact, but overall takes care of the clients. Their in-house caterer (Destiny's at Beckitt Ridge Country Club) has excellent food.
I had my wedding here this past December (2013), and I can't begin to explain how impressed I was with Chateau Pomije! We had approximately 175 guests attend, and there was plenty of room. The venue was beautiful and suited our "Rustic Winter Wonderland" theme. The staff is very helpful, and Shelley, the owner, assisted us every step of the way. Communication with her was clear and prompt, and she went above and beyond to make sure our day was special. Prices are very fair and reasonable; there are no hidden fees. I would highly recommend this venue!
We want to thank Chateau Pomije for helping us through out this long period of communicating back and forth for months, to make our day a success. We loved everything about Chateau! It is a great place to have a wedding! Thank you again for making our day special it was beautiful! Absolutely perfect!
I got married this past May at this venue and it was AMAZING! They were very help, flexible and made me feel at ease on my big day. The were accommodating and made us feel very special. The food was delicious and we had so many compliments from our guests. It was so neat to be serving our guests wine from the very vineyards that were outside. We were unsure of the spring weather, so upon short notice we were able to have our wedding outside like we had hoped! I would highly recommend this venue to anyone.
Beautiful views from the reception hall, great indoor/outdoor areas, nice dance floor, awesome wine. They pretty much accommodated all of our wants/needs, even added an entree that wasn't on their menu just for our wedding. Only hiccup was a little wait time for guests getting food at the buffet when it needed to be switched out.
wine was good
I fell in love with the Chateau Pomije from my very first look at it. They have a beautiful arch in front of a gorgeous lake fountain and a breathtaking landscape of trees as far as the eye can see. I made arrangements for my big day and set a "save the date" with the coordinator. That was on a Sunday. I was told they would be in touch in me that following week to review all my choices and arrange for the payment of my deposit. I contacted them via email the next day to ask a question I had forgotten to while on the tour. I received no reply. I emailed them once on Tuesday...no reply. I left a voicemail for them on Tuesday evening to return my call the following morning. I never got a phone call. I emailed again on Wednesday and got no reply. I emailed again on Thursday and was told that they would have Christine contact me. I received no email or return phone call. I sent an email on Friday and still was greeted with no response. So on Saturday I finally called and left another voicemail thinking maybe there were issues with the internet provider. I asked them to call me back and stated I had a deposit due on Sunday, had tried unsuccessfully to contact them and needed to speak with them. I did not receive a phone call or email back. I talked to friend who is getting married before me and she said she had the same experience with them. I will never recommend them to anybody again.
this was an awesome venue. mary and christine were always very helpful and made sure we were clear with everything that was going to happen. the lake was a beautiful backdrop and the patio is gorgeous! the only reason the i took away a star was b/c the red wine wasn't quite as good as it was at the tasting. maybe a different batch? the however was great! it seems some caterers find it difficult to serve tender, juicy meat, but they got it perfect! we had the citrus pork and burgandy beef tips! delicious!
I loved the venue. My guests loved the option to go onto the covered patio an look at the lake. They were very open about letting me set up the tables and ipod speakers 2 days in advance and serving both pies and cake at the wedding. They also found space and put out a million flowers vases they let us arrange there. My only complaint is that they were hard to reach. They only answer the phone weds. to sat. and took over a week to answer emails and didn't always answer your questions. but overall i am very happy with the venue!
The Chateau Pomije was a beautiful location for my wedding. I have heard nothing but wonderful feedback from my guests about having my wedding there. We thought about having a destination wedding--but realized many of our family would have missed out. Chateau Pomije was the best of both worlds!
Christine and Mary were helpful--Christine had a very good system set up in which I had very little to stress or worry about!
I'm so glas I picked this place to get married and have my reception. The staff are so friendly and Christine & Mary are so helpful. They made my day perfect and even let me personalize things to make it feel like my own place. Pet Friendly outside for my dog ring bearer and flower girl really made my wedding. Only down side was that the music system outside cut in and out when I walked down the aisle. May want to bring your own if you plan on using your iPod for the ceremony music. Thanks SO much CPW!
Ok, first I will say the positive! They did honor our initial deposit after we had rescheduled our wedding arrangements several times (against our will). They didn't have to do that. They also did allow room for negotiation on some of the fees for dinner/reception.
My husband and I had a beautiful ceremony outdoor next to the lake. When we came for our "30 day walk through" before the wedding, the landscaping had not been "weeded" and tended to. Plants and shrubs were overgrown as well as the lake was surrounded by "cat tails" and was not well mowed or maintained. Considering the price of using the winery and vineyards for our ceremony backdrop, we were very dissapointed. Since it is a ceremony site, we would've assumed it to be well groomed and maintained by June.
So, we actually hired a professional landscaper to come in and clean everything up. (the winery did eventually reimburse us, however) I don't believe that it is anyone else's job, but the vendor's, to make sure the place is presentable. Unbelievable!
We also had our reception there, in the winery banquet room. It is beautiful and serene, especially with the large windows overlooking the lake as the sun fades away.
First of all, throughout the entire planning process, the wedding coordinator/winery representive said she would be on site the day of the wedding, helping things to go smoothly. Um, well...let's just say, my now husband, was asked to move a big container of our centerpiece flowers for her (in his tux a few hours prior to ceremony) and needless to say he ended with yellow flower stamen stained on his pearl colored vest!! Why did she ask the Groom!! We were able to have the flowers, bouquets, and corsages dropped off the day before and stored in the kitchen refridgeration. The groom and groomsmen, along with our parents were there first to get pictures. The coordinator did not help get the flowers out of the kitchen, nor was able to be found to find our where they were! So we ended having some pictures of the guys and parents without them! Then, once I had arrived, my mom and mother-in-law found them and dipersed them. (again, it would be ok if I needed to have a designated person to handle this stuff, but she acted like it would be handled)
Isn't that what staff are hired for, at least!! That's unheard of! But wait, there's more!
Once we were ready for the champagne toasts, I had to go the the bar/kitchen and specifically request for them to bring it out!! This was also after the coordinator said she would be on stand-by to ensure we had it at the time we had designated. Wow!
Seriously, this place is (was beautiful) and we made it a wonderful day to remember, but I definitely recommend hiring your own wedding coordinator for help on your special day.
