We had originally booked with Louland Falls with another operator but she had to turn the operation of the venue to Mark (who runs Cosmopolitan Catering). The handover from her to him was smooth and all existing agreements regarding the contract we had signed were honored. Mark met with us at the venue a couple of times to go over planning and layout of the wedding and for the most part was responsive to our requests. I did send an email requesting a scan of the layout he had made in one of our meetings and never got a response. The day of the wedding it was a little colder than we were expecting and he and his staff worked with us to accomodate the weather by moving the tables inside and that worked out. Two reasons for giving a little bit of a lower rating on some items. The main one is that the bridal suite had an odor of raw sewage in it. I'm not sure it's a persistent problem but it was noticeable by everyone in there and not a great way to start off the day. The second is that the two women working the venue asked my wife a few times during the reception about the timing of things. It would have been vastly preferable for them to not bother her and be respectful of the limited time we had with family. They should have stuck to the predefined schedule or at least asked someone else and not her. All that being said, the venue was a beautiful spot for our wedding and everyone had a great time. I would recommend them for future couples considering a venue if the issues with the bridal suite are addressed.
This is a gorgeous place to have a wedding/reception! Mark and his staff are very flexible and accommodating. They work with any budget. And it helps that it doesn't take a lot to make this place look beautiful. The outside vendors all delivered directly to Louland Falls so it made for an overall stress free experience. Thank you Mark and staff for a wonderful experience!!
Beautiful location. Staff was very helpful. The grass was almost all brown for having the wedding the first of June.
NEW OWNERSHIP ALERT- AND THEY ARE TERRIBLE!!!! This venue was just sold to a caterer and the place went from a 10 to a 0. My friend just got married at this venue (after signing on with the previous owners) and they got hosed. They let the grass die- yellow dead grass for your wedding pictures. And they don't care and didn't give the bride and groom a discount. NO WEDDING COORDINATOR- which they actively say in the contract and on the website. The owner only allowed set up 2 hours before the wedding and while my friends hauled all the decorations, alcohol, etc., the 'coordinator' and 'staff' sat around watching them. ZERO help. Friends set up the entire wedding. All throughout the wedding the owners child and/or useless coordinator were sitting on a chair in full view of the guests on their phone or laptop. Um, what?!?!? The waiters didn't fill water glasses until halfway through the dinner after a guest told them to do their job. A champagne toast was in the contract and the owner on the day of the wedding told the groom he wouldn't have the waiters pass the champagne and to tell the guests to get the champagne at the bar. Has this person never been to a wedding???? Who does that? After the groom got really upset (on his wedding day!) and argued with the owner he finally agreed to have the champagne passed. Possibly one of the two people sitting around on their phones could have helped out? Oh wait one was dressed in jeans at a semi formal wedding. Classy...The owner also made a new rule at the reception and closed down the bar early. When the laws were reiterated to him about alcohol and timing he stated 'well those are my personal rules'. Brides and Grooms- if u want to argue with a venue owner the entire day of your wedding, have dead grass for your ceremony and pay for a coordinator to do nothing - then this is the place for you! The florist that did the wedding stated they had never seen the place look that bad and would not be referring any clients there with this new ownership. Florist also asked if the couple would get money back for the dead grass. I feel horrible for all the couples that booked this place before the change of ownership. The new owner clearly thinks he can just buy a venue, sit back and let the money roll in. What was once a wonderful wedding venue is now a disgrace. Good luck to those brides and grooms coming up- you'll need it.
