We recently had our daughters wedding reception in the Berkshire room at Tekoa country club and it was just fabulous! The staff at TCC is wonderful to work with. Sara V., the event coordinator, was such a pleasure to work with. She met with us, got a true feel for our vision for the reception and was on point for every single detail we asked for and more. Sara gets the job done! The chef, Jeff, was also very helpful and did a wonderful job. Guests raved about the food, from the delicious appetizers of stuffed mushrooms, scallops wrapped in bacon, beef Wellington, etc. to the dinners of shrimp, sirloin with Jack Daniels sauce, and chicken franchaise, everything was so delicious and served nice and hot. The food presentations were great too.
The rest of the staff was great to work with as well, from the bartenders to wait staff and everyone in between. Dan B., well, let's just say he was just wonderful in every way! The venue was clean inside and out, pretty flowers outside and at the entrance, outdoor decks, all nicely done. We brought in our own items to give the reception that personal feel. Sara and staff worked with us to get it all in place and everything looked great. Three weeks later now and we're still getting compliments! I just can't say enough about Dan, Sara, Jeff , Steven, and the entire staff at Tekoa. They got the job done and are easy to do business with. We highly recommend this venue.
Tekoa Country Club was the perfect venue for our wedding ceremony and reception. The outdoor ceremony site provided a picturesque setting and was great for our wedding photos. The reception was beautifully decorated and every detail from the menu, signature drink and the French macaroon cookies for our wedding favors complimented our Paris themed wedding. Our wedding coordinator Sara Velasquez worked with all of my vendors to make sure everything was perfect for our wedding day. The staff was very professional and attentive and our guests are still raving about the food! Thank you Sara, Chef and the staff at Tekoa Country Club for everything you did to make sure our wedding day was so special. We will cherish the memories always! Tricia & Mark Gouin
Tekoa Country Club was the perfect wedding venue! Sara and her staff were simply amazing. From the first day we met with Sara, we were very impressed and happy she would be helping us plan our wedding. She paid very close attention to detail and was always available when I had questions to ask. During the planning process Sara ensured we were comfortable with everything. On our wedding day we couldn't have asked for more from Sara and her staff. They helped make our day perfect! From the decorations in the room, to the aisle for the wedding, to the food! We are still hearing from our guests how great the food was and what an amazing wedding. We couldn't have been more pleased with Tekoa and Sara. Thank you for helping us make our wedding day so special!
We had a great wedding at Tekoa! Sara was excellent - she helped us every step of the way and made this a very easy process. She listened to our thoughts and also had good recommendations. The wedding day was seamless and everything looked beautiful. The food was delicious and everyone was raving about it. The room looked amazing and I couldn't have asked for any better. I would recommend this venue to anyone as they are able to work with a wide array of budgets. Thank you so much for making our day so special!
Absolutely beautiful place to get married the service was great and
the food was delicious! Sarah was wonderful always there when we needed her.
Great food, great employees and beautiful rooms!
I only had one issue where the bar tender kept charging my bridal party when they were already paid for.
Although my hubby & i originally chose Tekoa for both our daughter's baby shower & our vow renewal because it was close to our house, but I couldn't think of a more awesome place to hold any of our special events!! Every detail was paid attention to, right down to the letter, from the color swatches, to seating, to the food!! Everything had been placed perfectly!! Kate & her staff made sure we were happy & comfortable. They were courteous & pleasant to all of my family & guests. Kate personally helped me put together a surprise for my husband at the shower. The fact that she genuinely cared about our day really made all the difference :-). All of the guests came back to me & had said that this was the nicest & most beautiful shower they had ever attended. Now, we are looking forward to our vow renewal this upcoming summer. I have complete faith that Tekoa will help us put on another event that we will talk about for years to come!! To anyone looking for a fab location for a shower or wedding, this is indeed the place!!
Cheers, Christie Borelli-Gromaski
I am so happy we decided to go with Tekoa Country Club for our wedding! Kate, the wedding planner is amazing and really made the day go perfectly. She makes sure you are happy with everything and that you have nothing to worry about but having a great time. We also used Tekoa for the ceremony. It was beautiful and nice to do everything at one venue. The background was perfect for pictures! The food was delicious and everyone has told us how much they loved it. The space inside is beautiful and very spacious. We looked at a bunch of venues and Tekoa had the best prices too! I would and will recommend Tekoa to anyone I know. Thank you so much Kate for making our wedding day so perfect and truely a day we will never forget.
Tekoa Country Club was the perfect wedding venue for both our ceremony and reception. The beautiful backdrop and amazing staff made our day perfect.
Kate Sklarski- our banquet manager was outstanding (not only on our wedding day but for 10 months leading up to our wedding). She met with us several times to go over all of my little details and personal touches. She would contact me on the weekends to tell me about things she found that I might like for our wedding. We felt like Kate treated our wedding as if it were her own wedding. At one point during the night a guest stepped on my dress while dancing and ripped it. Kate was right there with her sewing kit, sewing my dress back together in minutes so I could go back out on the dance floor. I had a lot of guests compliment how "on point" my wedding coordinator Kate was.
Food- The food was delicious. My uncle said that the stuffed mushrooms were the best he'd ever had. I had many guests complimenting how awesome the food was! The cake was to die for. YUM!
Staff- The staff was phenomenal. The week of our wedding I was making trips to Tekoa to drop off 5 carloads worth of things I wanted incorporated into my wedding. Every time I showed up there was at least 5 staff there with carts to help me unload everything and put it in a safe place. The day of my wedding the staff was on top of everything. There was never an empty water glass or wine glass.
Overall Tekoa Country Club made all of our wedding dreams come true. The day was so easy and carefree because of the amazing staff!
THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING TEKOA COUNTRY CLUB STAFF!!!
Tekoa Country Club did a great job!
Service was prompt and efficient.
The setting was great.
The food was really good.
Kate Sklarski was great to work with. She is well organized and kept things moving smoothly.
The whole team took all our stresses away. They set up the night before so we could see/approve everything, which allowed us to sleep great the night before the wedding. Everything was beautiful! Kate was amazing and guided us thru the whole thing! She got us everything we needed and was even going to make my soon to be wife a grilled cheese becuase she was to nervous to eat anything!!!!!!!
Thank you Tekoa!!
We honestly couldn't have found a better place to make one of the most important memories of our lives than Tekoa Country Club. Kate is an amazing and talented wedding coordinator and she made sure our wedding was flawless. She went above and beyond to make sure that our wedding and reception was something we will never forget. From the tasting to the rehearsal and even to last minute changes Kate and the staff were wonderful. Tekoa and Kate went above and beyond. The price of everything is very reasonable for the quality and service you receive. I would 100% recommend Tekoa Country Club to anyone who is looking to have a wedding or any other function. Thank you Kate and Tekoa! ~ the Muscaro's
I have nothing but nice words about Tekoa and all the employees. The wedding coordinator, Kate Slarski, was absolutely amazing!!! No matter what are vision was, she would do anything to make that vision come true for us and she did! We couldnt have asked for a better place to have gotten married at. Everything from the ceremony to the reception was beyond beautiful and more than we could have ever asked for. The food was phenomenal and the service was GREAT!! I was so pleased and astonished at how amazing that place is run!
Kate took all our stress away by guiding us through the process. And when it came to our big day, she went beyond just being a wedding planner and made me feel more comfortable and at ease. She made everything that day run soo smoothly! and If we needed ANYTHING, we know without a doubt, she would be right there helping us in any way she could.
I truly recommend Tekoa Country Club to any couple looking for an amazing venue! Our day was perfect and I couldnt have been more happy that we found Tekoa.
I had the best day at my wedding thanks to Kate from Tekoa. Even with the drama my family created I never knew a thing Kate took care of it and I loved it.
We had originally written Tekoa CC a good review, despite a few issues we had with them. We had a great experience up until our actual wedding day with the club, and a great experience with Kate until a few weeks after our wedding.
We had a tentative schedule mapped out for us, the one time I told them was very important to me was the dinner to be at 6:30. The wedding party didn't eat until after 8:00, some of our guests didn't get there dinner until almost 9:00. We were waiting until after dinner to go around to the guests tables but by the time we ate we didn't make it to half before the DJ told us we either had to start the dances, etc.. or we wouldn't have enough time to fit everything in before the night ended. We had skipped the receiving line with the thought we greet everyone at tables, skipped the anniversary dance, as well as hurried our photographer so we could get to the hall on time.
Once we got to our seats Kate told us there was a problem with one of our guests not having enough chairs at her table, Kate approached me I told her it wasn't a big deal and to let it be. The guest was so upset she talked to the owner and Kate asked me to talk to the owner for her, which I did. Well a couple weeks after the wedding I was told by other guests at the table Kate was indeed rude and unprofessional to the guest at the table, I'm sure the guest was probably being rude as well but that is no excuse to be unprofessional.
When we signed up for the hall a different wedding coordinator was working at Tekoa, and she told us that we could substitute the cake for chair covers and two hot appetizers. My mom who was with me asked her to put it into writing but she assured us they do this all of the time and promised to honor this for us. About 6 months before our wedding a new wedding coordinator took her place. She checked with the chef and told us they would sill honor this for us, but the choices would be "chef's choice". We said that was fine but there was a list of things I didn't was served so she told me to send her a list and the chef would not make them. A couple weeks after the wedding we had guests over for dinner and I asked how the appetizers were at the wedding and sure enough they didn't serve any. At this point I was very upset with Tekoa and contacted Kate about why they didn't serve the appetizers she assured me they did and said she would get back to me. After a couple days of hearing nothing, I asked again why they did not serve appetizers they promised. She then told us she would check with her boss and try to give us some money back. Well after a couple weeks of phone tag she said they would reimburse us for the extra hour we paid for since we waited so long for dinner, but she wouldn't for the appetizers they promised us. I told her I have this in writing and feel its fair to be reimbursed for them since they were promised to us. She said since it was only in Email and not in contract they didn’t have to. And we still haven't seen a check for the extra hour we paid for.
This has been an awful experience for us when I think about my wedding day I get an awful feeling, people kept telling me something will go wrong at some point in the day but I never expected all of this..
Tekoa is a very beautiful place to get married and the food is good, but not being able to trust the coordinator just about ruined my wedding.
If you do go with Tekoa have them put EVERYTHING in the contract!
Tekoa was absolutely beautiful. I was a DIY bride brought in a lot of my own decor the Tekoa staff were amazing they set up everything I wanted exactly the way I wanted it. There were unfortunate circumstances that came up but Tekoa pulled through and did a fantastic job. Would highly recommend!
When I first booked with Tekoa I had booked with Rachel. She was one of the main reason's why we booked at Tekoa. Three months after our booking Rachel left and Kate replaced her. I was very nervous about this change because again one of the reason's we booked with Tekoa was because of Rachel. After speaking with Kate she wanted me to come in and meet her. Once I did I knew everything would be perfect for my wedding! Kate took care of everything for me. If I had a question I could easily text/call/or email her and get a response right away. Kate definitely helped make my day perfect and I couldn't have asked for a better banquet manager than her! Thanks Kate.
The food was amazing! My guests are still talking about how good the food was.
Overall I would recommend Tekoa CC to anyone who is looking for an outdoor wedding or a nice reception hall!
Tekoa did an AMAZING job for my wedding! The layout of the room and colors I wanted were spot on! Kate is an amazing event planner there and she went out of her way to help me do my center pieces. The only thing that was a little off for me was how long it took the food to come out at the reception. Everything else was flawless!
Where do I even begin! I can't even explain what a great experience we had at tekoa through the whole process, from booking the event to the day of. I feel like we really got a a great deal for what we wanted and everything turned out perfect. Kate, the wedding planner at tekoa was incredible. She was always there whenever I needed anything from day one. We had a bunch of polish traditions, including food, and she made sure every detail was spot on, even getting my dads favorite polish beer and having tastings to make the the polish food was right. She was so flexible, offering to meet at anytime, and even pick things up or meet me to drop them off to make it easier. We would text back and forth for whatever reason, and even after the wedding we still communicated. I honestly felt like my wedding was the most important thing and she would do whatever she could to make sure of that. My husband and I can't honestly thank her and tekoa enough for everything they did to make our day perfect.
As crazy as this sounds, I have been engaged to my fiancée for 7 months; He's in the Army and we knew eventually he would be getting deployed- we just didn’t think it would be as quickly as it was. We decided, we would get married before he left: In 2 short weeks!! We immediately started planning our wedding. We called Tekoa Country Club in Westfield and spoke with Kate Sklarski the Wedding Planner. Since the first day we spoke to her, she assured us it could be done in such a short period of time, and it would go off flawlessly. We signed our contract the very next day, picked out linen and she even arranged a quick tasting for us to try our food options! She was there every step of the way, and helped me when I need guidance, and gave her personal and professional opinion when I asked. Days leading up to the event I had gotten a call from Kate saying the room was all set up, and invited me to check it out & drop off all my belongings such as cake cutter & server, toasting flutes, my party favors, as well as the rest of my belongings. I showed up with a ton of boxes, and all of her staff was outside to help me unload my car. We got into the room, and it was so beautiful- the linens, chair covers and colors Kate suggested all complimented our theme so perfectly. The staff set up my DIY centerpieces from Pinterest so I wouldn’t have to do anything other than enjoy being the Bride. The day of my wedding came, and it was absolutely perfect. Tekoa Country Club did an amazing job the food- it was hot, delicious and the staff was so friendly and attentive to all of our guests. We had all of our guest’s raving, how everything was perfectly done. With Kate’s help, every step of the way through this process was so easy!! We cannot thank Kate, and her team at Tekoa Country Club enough for making our wedding day, truly the best day of our lives.
