The Bedford Village Inn created the most perfect wedding celebration that we could have asked for! From touring the beautiful property to the tasting and the days leading up to the ceremony, everyone that we worked with surpassed our expectations. The planning process was done... Read More in an efficient timeline, with all of our questions answered throughout at every step. Being a planner with attention to detail, I appreciated all of the notes taken throughout, like food prepared certain ways or requesting alternate wines for table service. The property is gorgeous and well maintained, and all of our guests were able to stay onsite at the beautiful Grand hotel. Our photos came our beautifully! The food at all locations was exceptional, and every meal was cooked perfectly and kept warm throughout the day, and we enjoyed a delicious brunch the morning after. The service staff was attentive and courteous, and the timeline went seamlessly! Everything surpassed our expectations!

We got married on December 2nd at the Bedford Village Inn and simply put it was a dream from start to finish. Starting from the planning process, Nicolette, our coordinator was wonderful to work with and was always available to answer our many, many questions. Something else I... Read More appreciated was we never felt like we were getting up sold - Nicolette would give us her honest opinion which in many cases, ended in us choosing a less expensive option then we initially thought. The day of our wedding went off without a hitch. It being a winter wedding, the Great Hall was beautifully decorated for Christmas, and Nicolette and her team even worked the day before to remove some items that read a little too Christmassy for us. The hall truly sparkled with candals and white fairy lights. Once guests arrived the entire hall felt so warm and full of love. The ceremony took place inside, and while we were a little concerned about switching it over for the reception, the staff at the BVI are true professionals and had the entire room switched over before people came back from their first cocktail! Dinner was astounding, people were shocked how a venue could possibly cook over 100 filets perfectly!! Once dancing started the Inn transformed into a room full of dancing and did not stop until the last shuttle bus left. Having the entire Inn to ourselves for the evening was so special, and meant the party did not have to stop as we went to the Summit Suite for the after party. The entire evening felt like we were in our own home with our favorite family and friends celebrating love - and I do not think you can ask of anything more out of a wedding venue! Thank you again BVI!!!

We had our wedding at BVI on June 10 and absolutely loved it! Our coordinator started as Megan who was great. She answered all of our questions very quickly and was very professional. The month before our wedding, Megan left BVI and we had Nicolette as a coordinator. She was... Read More also really good. I had a final meeting with her the day before the wedding to go over final details and placements so that wedding day of went smoothly. Makenzie was our day of coordinator who we met at the rehearsal and who kept the bridal party in line at the ceremony. Kelly was my helper on wedding day by serving the bridal party during pictures, and helped me with my dress for pictures. She was so nice and made sure to say bye to my husband and I before she left for the night. The food was delicious! Our guests all thought BVI was beautiful and were happy with the service. There were only a few things that I didn't really like. First, we weren't told that downstairs only fits 180 guests and that any additional guests need to sit up on the balcony. We invited 200 guests and did not want to have anyone separated but luckily we had under 180. Also, at 11pm at the end of the wedding, the cleanup staff was very rushed and were running through the room with tables and chairs. They also then held up the elevator moving the tables/chairs to another floor so guests staying in the inn couldn't use the elevator. Overall, BVI is beautiful, the food was really good, and we had a wonderful time.

BVI are pros at what they do. My husband and I picked them for their food reviews and excellent service in terms of all the planning and correspondence. We were a little worried since when we did our tasting the food was just average. When it counted though - they definitely... Read More came through, everything day of tasted amazing. Melissa Quinn-Samaras was amazing to work with for planning (super responsive and professional) and Samantha and Mackenzie did a great job day of. We received so many compliments from our guests and could not be happier with our selections. One odd thing is that we had a two tier wedding cake and some additional sheet cakes to serve our guests and they only used the sheet cakes and not the actual wedding cake. The entire thing was send home with us (meant to serve 60). Not sure what went wrong there as I had discussed that the cake was to be cut and served and I confirmed with my baker those same instructions were provided. That was only one small blip in an otherwise perfect day. Highly Recommend.

I had polar opposite experiences between the Tavern for my rehearsal dinner and the Inn for the wedding, hence the low rating. Let's start with the good: The ceremony and reception at the Inn were beautiful and seamless. Sam stayed nearby the entire time and made sure we had... Read More everything we needed. Our guests had an amazing time. Absolutely zero complaints about my experience with the Inn and the event staff. The Tavern is a different story, though. My family had booked the upstairs room until 9pm, and were planning on meeting more friends at the Bonfire afterwards. I learned later that there were complaints about us being noisy, which apparently led the staff to believe that we were all over served. When we eventually moved downstairs to the bonfire, I (the bride) went up to the bar to get a drink and was told that I was being cut off. This was not only ridiculous - I was dead sober- but also just terrible customer service. Who cuts off the bride at her own rehearsal dinner? When my parents approached the manager to ask what was going on, he proceeded to kick my entire party out of the Bonfire and call the police. It was all completely disastrous, upsetting, and unwarranted. So basically, if you plan on having any fun or joy at your rehearsal dinner, or if your family is boisterous like mine, spend your money elsewhere. Have your wedding at the Inn, but avoid the restaurant.
