If you live in the Northwest Indiana area and are looking for a vendor for your wedding, Aberdeen Manor should be on your list of places to check out! They absolutely gave us the wedding of our dreams! The owners are amazing and went above and beyond anything we could have ever... Read More expected! The owners and husband-wife team, Denna and Jim, make you feel like you are really part of their family. They are willing to work with any budget, small or large. Denna is a Wedding Planner and is full of surprisingly wonderful ideas! She will make sure that your wedding celebration includes all the personality of the bride and groom. Everything was taken care of by the wonderful staff at Aberdeen. I did not stress out throughout the entire process, because I knew Denna was on top of it! The evening of our wedding went off without a hitch! We expected SOMETHING to go wrong, but nothing did! The evening flowed from one stage into the next! Over a month later, our family and friends are still talking about how wonderful the evening was and how much fun they had that night! We wanted a celebration with our loved ones and we certainly got one! With my husband having family all over the place (Arizona to Texas to Florida and even Japan), we wanted to ensure that everyone enjoyed their time together. It was not just a wedding, but it was a family reunion of sorts! The entire weekend was a big celebration! Though we personally had no particular attachment to Valparaiso (I’m from Crown Point and my husband is from Tinley Park, IL), we couldn’t have found a more fitting location! If we could do it over again, I wouldn't even hesitate to get married and have the reception at Aberdeen Manor. Also, if you are looking for a venue with an outdoor setting for a wedding, the garden area is beyond beautiful! My husband, Justin, and I are very outdoorsy people and it was so fitting to be able to get married outside! We wanted a location that offered an outdoor area as well as a hall for the reception so that guests didn’t have to drive to a second spot after the wedding. We found exactly what we wanted and loved every minute of our celebration! We really enjoyed the evening because of all the hard work and time that the Aberdeen family put into making our night one to remember! Denna, Jim, Trey, Megan, Lisa, Carol, and all the other lovely people of Aberdeen, provided us with memories that we will forever cherish! We are very pleased and could not recommend the services at Aberdeen more! Thank you so much for making everything so stress-free and easy going! JF 06.14.2013

I had a wonderful wedding at Aberdeen Manor and would refer them to any bride. We had a July 6, 2013 wedding and it was beautiful. I feel like Aberdeen does offer a lot for the price, however I would recommend considering a Friday wedding or fall wedding if you are planning on... Read More having under 200 guests because of the minimum that you are required to meet. I had 130guests and found it hard to meet the 8000 minimum on food and drink. A wedding out of season or not on a Saturday would require a much smaller minimum to meet, but this was a planning mistake on my part, and not soemthing at the fault of Aberdeen. The food was amazing, and the decoration were beautiful I did like how I could bring in my own decoration and have the wedding coordinators decorate everything to my liking. All of the workers were very professional and friendly, and made sure that everyone was happy. The only item that was a bit upsetting was the time that we were allowed to take pictures. We were only allowed one hour before the ceremony, and this is not much time. Also, I felt very rushed for pictures after the ceremony. Pictures were very important to me, so this was a bit upsetting. While I was upset about the time allowed for pictures, I do feel that I had a wonderful wedding day, and in the end would strongly refer anyone to them. The service and quality of everything is wonderful.

Very helpful and great at what they do!!!

The venue is beautiful, and unlike some places in the area, it is decorated in neutral colors.... Read More (Everything is done in shades of Grey within the ballroom, we viewed several places with bold colored walls, which for a wedding venue i think is tacky.) Denna coordinated our entire event, and everything was perfect. She was incredibly organized, and didn't miss a single detail. All of the minor issues we had the day of were non Aberdeen related. Denna walked us through everything, making sure dresses were purchased on time, assuring that I kept consistent in my color choices, and with the overall look I was going for. She was incredibly attentive, and didn't miss a beat. The poor woman had her gallbladder removed two weeks before our wedding, and was still present, and had everything under control that day! I was and still am amazed by her! The hall was set up perfectly when I arrived before the ceremony, it was more than I could ever have hoped for. It literally took my breathe away. The food was delicious, and the staff was beyond amazing! There was no waiting around for them to get things done like I've experienced as a guest at other venues, everything happened exactly as it should have, and they were very friendly and attentive. Aberdeen isn't just a venue, it's an experience. Denna and Jim Fyock (the owners) make you feel like part of the family, and do everything they can to make sure your day is perfect. I couldn't be more thankful to them and the entire Aberdeen staff!
