Chandler Hill was perfect! The actual venue was just gorgeous both inside and out, not to mention the wonderful staff. Megan was our wedding coordinator and she went above and beyond to help us organize our reception between us, the chef, wait staff, and bartenders. All the... Read More staff was very accommodating and gracious with anything we requested or needed. The food was delicious, there was never a line at the bar, and they work hard to make the perfect environment for your wedding. I was so happy that I chose them because they made a lot of the wedding planning process easier. With Chandler Hill and their staff I knew that my wedding reception would be elegant, fun, delicious and have plenty of wine. who could ask for more? they planned out the reception timeline meticulously with me and worked it out with the DJ, most of my vendors were familiar with Chandler Hill and that also made things easier. My husband and I just got married a few weeks ago but our friends and family are still coming up to us and telling us how amazing our wedding was and how beautiful Chandler Hill is. We could not be any happier with Chandler Hill.

After visiting several venues, my husband and I easily decided on CHV as the venue for our wedding and reception. We are SO happy with how our special day turned out. Every detail was planned and executed to perfection. Megan and Alyssa were instantly like 'friends' to me and... Read More were helpful throughout the entire process. The space was gorgeous, the food was delicious, and the staff kept the event moving so I could relax and enjoy my own wedding! I'm so thankful to these girls and CHV.

Thank you Megan, Alyssa, and the rest of the CHV staff- you contributed so much to the best day of our lives.

Chandler Hill is the perfect setting for a classic, romantic summer wedding. Megan and Alyssa are both fantastic to work with and made sure that the day went by without a hitch. From booking to figuring out all of the little details to the rehearsal and finally wedding day, they... Read More were always there for me and made sure that I felt like the most important bride ever (even though they had 2 more that weekend alone). I had the pleasure of working with many amazing vendors (that they helped suggest to me too), but Chandler Hill was the best choice that I could have made. I can't wait to go back and see you girls!!!

We just had our wedding here this past weekend. It was everything I had envisioned and more! The food was fantastic and the service was great (many compliments from guests). I was worried how quick they would flip the venue from normal guests to our wedding but WOW they have... Read More it mastered. I was a bit hesitant how the day would go, since from the time we book until our wedding we had 3 wedding planners but Alyssa was AMAZING and went above and beyond to make sure I felt comfortable, especially with the change in coordinators.

Chandler Hill Vineyards should be your first choice in wedding venues. Our daughter's May wedding was planned by Megan and her staff, and they did a tremendous job in making our daughter's dream wedding come true! Every detail was accounted for and every accommodation was made... Read More for us. The staff is incredibly helpful and polite. There was not a question unanswered nor a detail overlooked. The weddings guests raved about the venue, the decor of the venue, THE FOOD, and the polite staff. Every measure was taken to make sure our set-up was timely. Megan executed the ceremony perfectly. There was never a delay or cause for concern. I highly recommend that one consider Chandler Hill Vineyard as their first choice when planning an event.

I had both my ceremony and reception at Chandler Hill. It rained almost six inches on my wedding day, and the evening went on without a hitch.

We had our Oct 2016 at Chandler Hill. It is a beautiful place for a wedding & overall our day went smoothly. We worked with Megan, who was very sweet and helpful with the food/bar, all of our guests loved the food. They do give you limited time to setup the space, for our... Read More ceremony time we had 1 hr to setup which was more like really a ½ hour because the majority of our guests arrived via shuttle around 5:30. This was not as big of a deal as I thought it would be. The staff flips the room incredibly fast and the space is beautiful so it really does not need much added décor. For any brides getting married here, I highly suggest hiring a day of coordinator (that’s probably a good idea for any venue!) The CH wedding coordinator left after dinner I believe, which was only about 1 ½ into our 4 hour wedding reception . The DOC helped us with the flow of the reception, we used A Bride’s Ally as recommended by CH. Also, check out Klondike Park for photos, its about 10 mins away & looks like we were on a beach! We were not able to take pictures at first at CH when arriving due to the crowd & me feeling a little overwhelmed (but we got married on a sunny, warm October day, other weekends might not be so crazy) We also had a bit of noise from a staff vehicle, sounded like an four wheeler or a side by side, while our ceremony was going on. At first I laughed it off but we had a lot of comments from our guests to the point that I felt it must have taken away from our ceremony. Overall, I would recommend Chandler Hill for a venue but I agree with the below review that I did feel like just another customer to them. We never heard from them again and the staff on Sunday seemed quite annoyed with us when we stopped by to pick up items before opening as directed. Our other vendors did not make me feel this way.

As a Mother of the Bride, I can happily tell you that Chandler Hill was the absolute best choice we could have made for our daughter's wedding. The facilities were inviting, the food was excellent, and the staff was professional and impeccable. But the most important thing was... Read More they made our daughter's night the event she'd always wanted. Megan, our coordinator, knew we wanted the wedding and dancing to be held outside, and even though storms were all around, not only did she work directly with the OWNER of the vineyard to check the weather, but they made the call to go ahead and have the event outside. And then, as if that wasn't enough, when the band balked about setting up outside, Megan went to bat for us and made sure the band cooperated, and we were able to dance the night away under the stars. Our guests LOVED it.... saying it felt like they'd been whisked away to Napa or Tuscany. I'd highly recommend Chandler Hill. Megan's attention to detail was over the top - she always responded back to questions within 24 hours, and she was cheerful, supportive and a great problem solver. This is a vendor you want to be on your team when your daughter gets married.

AMAZING. We always wanted a quick engagement and couldn't have done it without the staff at Chandler Hill. From engagement to walking down the aisle, we planned everything in 6 months and 3 days! Becky was great to lock down our day and Megan was AMAZING to work with. She... Read More sent updates and checked in throughout the months. The day-of, she was organized and had all of my diagrams/sketches I sent ahead of time. The staff helped set the room up which was no easy task - being a florist, we had over 85 arrangements to place. We didn't mess around. In a little under an hour, the CHV staff had everything ready to go. It rained on and off our whole day and Megan kept pushing us to wait it out, knowing we wanted an outdoor wedding. We had the most amazing outdoor wedding and dancing. When our band didn't want to set up outside, Megan found a solution. We were told by SO many guests that it was the best wedding food (and meal) they'd ever had. The steak, asparagus, and pasta (believe it or not) were fantastic!! Go for the fireworks - they're amazing! Getting married at the end of May, CHV even shifted the start time to help with the darkness level. We danced well into the night and I couldn't have been any happier with my overall experience. If you're lucky enough to book a spot at CHV, you're going to have an amazing start to your happily ever after!

The second I saw Chandler Hill, I knew it was THE place. The place where I wanted both my ceremony and reception to take place. To say that the day went beautifully perfect is an understatement. All of my guests raved not only about the beautiful venue and it's gorgeous view,... Read More but about the food, the wonderful servers and bartenders, and the comfort of chairs, tables, etc. I was absolutely floored by how wonderful everything turned out, and i wish I could relive the day over and over.
