Good Experience

Overall, this was a good venue. The garden was beautiful. The ballroom was nice. The food was fabulous. The biggest issues were the time constraints. We only got into the venue 2 hours before the wedding. In those 2 hours, we had to decorate everything, get ready, and fit in... Read More pictures. It was super stressful and required a ton of organization and help. The ballroom was a tight fit and there are quite a few rules, so read the fine print. The staff was decent, but I sometimes felt like a number on the list of brides having their wedding there instead of an individual. I would recommend the venue, but would be sure to point out the flaws with it.

I cannot even begin to write how pleased we were with the Dominion House and their staff. Everything from the initial meeting until my parents walked out the door at the end of the reception was a pleasant experience. David and Julie were great to work with throughout the whole... Read More planning process. However, Robin and the rest of the staff for wedding were equally as great. We received numerous compliments on how well organized everything seemed to be and the vendors even went on and on about what an enjoyable evening it was. The food was excellent. Even almost a week after the wedding, we are still hearing how great the food was and how beautiful the presentation was. The staff members worked hard to keep all the tables cleaned and made sure that the drinks stayed full. The staff helped set up our decorations and helped load up everything at the end of the night. Every staff member was very professional and very courteous. David made sure to keep everything on track, even letting my mom know that it was time to stop visiting...HaHa! I can't say enough good things about our experience with the Dominion House and their staff. We could not have picked a more beautiful venue. No matter what the budget is, it is worth every single penny!

BEST outdoor venue

Reviewed on 8/25/2013 Lindsay V

The Dominion House is absolutely gorgeous, and the grounds provide for a beautiful outdoor ceremony and amazing pictures. The ballroom is definitely grand and has plenty of space for a large reception while not feeling overly huge for smaller parties. Julie, the coordinator,...

Another pro for The Dominion House- they take care of the catering and table decorations. Of course it's built into your cost of the venue, but it's definitely great to not have to worry about handling outside caterers. The price is a bit on the higher end, but it's definitely worth it for a once-in-a-lifetime event!
