I will never be able to stop saying enough wonderful things about Aberdeen Manor. I had my wedding and reception there and from the day I chose them as my venue until the very last minute before we left the night of my wedding, they were right there helping me along the way to... Read More make sure my wedding was everything I wanted. Denna, Megan, and Trey and the rest of staff do an amazing job! I also got my invitations from their shop "Affairs" and they were better than I ever could have imagined. You won't be disappointed with anything. Ask any questions you want and they are right there to guide you. The food is delicious. The staff is amazing. The garden, chapel, and ballroom are gorgeous and they are always finding new ways to make it even better. I definitely recommend choosing them over anyone else.

One might think that you are treated like just another number considering the amount of... Read More weddings Aberdeen has but this is the farthest thing from the truth. Every staff member treated me like I was their only bride. I worked with Lisa, Lauren, and Megan and they were all amazing! From the wait staff to the bartenders to the chef everyone was wonderful.

Aberdeen is one amazing place. Thank you for the beautiful memories!

I know this is SEVERAL months late but I did want to take the time to thank the AMAZING people at Aberdeen and rave about the venue a little bit. My husband and I were married in October and chose Aberdeen as the place it will all go down. Not only was the venue BEAUTIFUL, we... Read More loved how the chapel and reception hall were literally across the street from each other so that cocktail hour could start minutes after the ceremony ended. I can't tell you how many people came up to Craig and I after the wedding and commented on how elegant and gorgeous everything was. I also had people telling us that the staff at Aberdeen were so attentive and helpful. It rained a tad on our wedding day (good luck right??) but the guests stated that the staff walked with them and held umbrellas over their heads while they walked from the chapel to the reception hall. They also helped me and did the same, so there weren't any makeup/hair disasters (phew!). Speaking of the staff, I want to single one person out who helped us in SO many ways; Megan. Megan was our wedding coordinator and the most amazing person ever I can't literally say enough about her. Starting from the first meeting we had with her, I knew that she had everything under control. Megan was so organized and detailed it actually calmed me down (I'm a tad control-freakish). I had so many weird questions that came up that I asked Megan and she responded to my emails almost instantly. She really helped take a lot of pressure off of the planning in the beginning. On rehearsal day, our minister actually showed up almost an hour late. Megan didn't miss a beat, she walked everyone through the rehearsal herself and stood in the place of the minister so that everyone knew where they were going (crisis averted!). On wedding day, Every time we needed something Megan was RIGHT there to help. My sister was having trouble bustling my dress and we were fighting with it for a while before the rehearsal started. Megan happened to come into the chapel at that exact time and helped bustle the dress! Literally nothing (that I can point to) went wrong on wedding day and I truly believe it is because the Aberdeen staff is SO well educated and planned in this scene that they know exactly what to do. Guests even told me how great the bartenders were and how nice everything flowed together. I can't say enough about Aberdeen Manor. I am so happy and grateful that Craig & I chose this as our wedding venue. The food, staff, hall, chapel were all top notch. Aberdeen made the greatest day of our lives even better than we could have imagined. Thank you thank you thank you all, Brittany & Craig Kouris

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!
