Best night of our lives! VENUE: We had our ceremony in the Coach room and reception in the main room of the Carriage House. The venue was breathtaking with an elegant and rustic charm. With the stunning decor in the Carriage House, there wasn't much need for a lot of additional decorations. The beautiful fireplaces were turned on in both rooms and made such a welcoming and cozy addition. The tables looked beautiful with the elegant place settings and eggplant napkins they provided. STAFF: Shannon was our main contact person from start to finish. She was easy to work with through the planning process and always had an energetic, positive vibe. Shannon was in contact with all of our vendors, which took a lot of stress away from me. The other staff at the Manor House worked together to make our ceremony and reception absolutely perfect. From the moment we arrived for pictures, we had someone checking in on us every 15 minutes to see if we needed anything. They were attentive without being intrusive. I truly felt like I had nothing to worry about once I arrived. Everything went off without a hitch (and if it didn't, they were so good, that I had no idea!) My dad (who does not give away money easily) felt that every dollar was well spent. With the level of service provided before and during the wedding and reception, the staff truly earned the service charge applied to the event. FOOD: The plated meals were served quickly and were delicious. We had the filet mignon and chicken piccata. Our guests were very complimentary about both. As a request from the groom, we also had late night bites provided by the Manor House. We ordered cheeseburger sliders and a Skyline coney bar. The late night bites came out around 10:00 and both were AMAZING!! OVERALL: We decided to get married three months after getting engaged. I would never have imagined we would be able to pull off such a wonderful event in this short period of time. With the help of the Manor House (and my retired mom), the day was one I will remember for a lifetime. Besides the 50 degree temperature drop the day of the wedding, there was not a single thing I would change about the day! Thank you to Shannon and the rest of the Manor House staff for helping to make our day perfect! :)
We Love Manor House!Reviewed on 10/09/2015 Heather L
Manor House was the perfect venue for our wedding reception. We toured many, many venues and walked away from all of them with an uncertain feeling. When we toured Manor House, we instantly knew that we had to have our reception there. The venue has such a classy feel to it, with so many beautiful areas for photographing. We originally worked with Anna, who eventually left Manor House. We were then matched with Shannon, and we were so glad to be able to work with her. She has such a great wedding planning background and brought up topics that we didn't even think of. Shannon was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, and would answer my emails within minutes every time I had a revision or question. On the day of the wedding, our room (The Crystal Ballroom) was absolutely gorgeous with all of the details and the lighting that Shannon helped us pick out. The food was so delicious, and all of the details were taken care of by their wonderful staff. We are so glad that we chose Manor House for the high quality, classiness, and incredible management. It was a great feeling to hand over all of our hard work leading up to the wedding, and have Manor House run the show for us. Thank you for making our wedding such a beautiful and memorable event!
Stunning venue! This was the first venue I visited when trying to decide where to have my wedding and I fell in love with it. The grounds are gorgeous and well kept, the interior is very classy and formal. I had my wedding ceremony in the atrium and it was gorgeous, I just loved the amount of natural light and the ceiling in that room. My reception was held in the Carolina room and it was perfect, my favorite part of the room was the bar and fireplace, very cozy and classy atmosphere. The cost was very reasonable for what you get here, the food is great, and the staff are very attentive to all your needs. During the planning process I worked with Shannon and she is fabulous! She was very helpful and genuinely excited and happy when helping me plan my vision for my wedding and reception, she really takes the time to communicate with you and she was a real pleasure to work with. Everything the day of went perfectly and everything was decorated beautifully and exactly the way I had imagined it. I would highly recommend the Manor House!
Manor house is so elegant and beautiful. We worked with Shannon and she was amazing to work with! She made sure every selection we made was carefully thought about and if we wanted to change something, we could call or email her to change or discuss. Our wedding day was perfect! It almost felt like we had a personal assistant the entire night. They appoint someone to make sure the night is going as planned and that your food and beer service is working smoothly. It was more than I ever expected out of a venue. But, it was perfect. We will never forget our wedding night because everything was beautiful and magical. I highly recommend Manor House!!!
PERFECT VENUE! I can't say enough about how wonderful our experience was with the Manor House from the very beginning till the grand finale! Michelle did an amazing job working and guiding us through the wedding planning process. She was so very nice and easy to work with. She is very professional and an expert in planning the perfect wedding for our daughter. The wedding ceremony was held in the beautiful outdoor gazebo and gardens. It was picture perfect! We were blessed with great weather and the ceremony was lovely. The reception in the Carolina room was absolutely breath taking and beautiful! It was set up exactly as we had planned and was stunning with the centerpieces, chair covers and sashes! I can't say enough about the great service of all staff during the reception! Christine and Corrine our banquet coordinators were exceptional and went above and beyond to make things absolutely perfect. We all enjoyed the delicious food and drink and had the time of our lives! I highly recommend the Manor house and I personally want to thank Michelle and all the other staff for making it the best day of my daughters life!
I'm not sure I can say enough amazing things about Manor House. Let me start by saying that Shannon was an absolute dream to work with. She kept me informed and on track every step of the way. Because we had a long engagement, we actually booked Manor House almost 2 years before our wedding date, which meant that we had plenty of time to drive Shannon and the team crazy with decision changes - all of which she handled with grace and genuine care. In addition to the beautiful ceremony and reception sites Manor House also hosts their own catering - and let me tell you that their food is phenomenal! Everyone I spoke with throughout the evening mentioned how great their food was. Shannon even worked with us to rent chairs and linens for the reception and she helped us lay out the most ideal room design for all of our guests, cake display, and gifts. Corrine was our bridal hostess for the day of the wedding and she did a superb job as well. She kept us in line and even helped keep up properly located with our agenda for the day. It was so wonderful to work with such a thoughtful staff and to host both our ceremony and reception in the same place. You pay a little more for the quality and convenience, but it was worth every penny for us.
The Manor House was such a great venue to host our wedding ceremony & reception! We worked with Shannon, who (besides being extremely friendly & helpful) made the whole process easy & fun. Paul was our room manager & he did such an amazing job putting everything together for us. Everyone we worked with was extremely helpful & nice. I cannot thank everyone at the Manor House enough for helping to make the day so perfect!
Overall this is a great experience I love the Manor House and the staff ,my sisters wedding went with out a hitch. Christine the manager for the night was amazing she helped the whole family when she could when she wasn't able to the bridal hostess Michaela was there to help as well. I don't think the night wouldn't have gone the way it did if it was for those two amazing young ladies. Then near the middle of the night things got a little confusing another lady approached my families table asking how everything was she said she was the manager and hoped the event was going well. This was the first we were told about her. Then thought the rest of the night I was see her come in and out taking pictures of people dancing and just watching. I get that weddings are a fun thing to experience but this isn't anyone you know and to take pictures of my family without asking disturbed me a little. Yes she said she was the manager but Christine was the manager for us and made that clear at the start, i would prefer people not to take pictures unless they are invited or ask if it would be ok. Just a little creepy. But back to the event it was beautiful the manor house knows how to have an elegant facility and for the most part be professional. Christine and Michaela from me and my family we would like to say thank you for making the night as great as it was. Love You both
Amazing! Let's start with THE LOOKS: the place is beautiful. It's not just a big empty room - the architecture is elegant and well kept. The little details around the nooks and crannies make all the difference in the world. THE STAFF - Friendliest most caring people I've ever worked with. Naila and Shannon made everything a cinch. They were attentive and genuinely committed to our experience. They made sure every little detail was in place and it was perfect. THE WEDDING - We did not expect how gorgeous everything would look on the day of our wedding. When my bride and I saw the set-up, the staging, and the lighting we were honestly in awe... just wow. Thanks Manor Hours!!!
What an incredible night! We were amazed at the organization and willingness to go out of their way to make our day extra special. Shannon was fantastic through the planning process an was able to answer all questions. Naila ran our event with precision and was there to help with anything at any minute...even a last minute shoe disaster with a bridesmaid. The grounds are beautiful and I can't wait to see our amazing pictures. When we walked in the room, my jaw almost hit the floor from how beautiful it was. I can't imagine a more amazing venue and staff than what we experienced at Manor House. THANK YOU for one of the most incredible days of our lives!
The Manor House was excellent. I talked to them pretty much every week for the 6 months leading up to my wedding and they were always super helpful and willing to do what I needed to make my day perfect. They were quick to respond to any emails or calls. The room was very beautiful the day of the wedding. We used both the Crystal Room and the Carriage House and both were fantastic. Our event manager was great, despite being new and not having history with the venue and our manager the night of the wedding was also great and super helpful. She constantly was asking me if I needed anything. I can't say enough about how awesome they were and how they made my day everything I hoped for. They were also very accommodating to last minute seating chart changes for the guests that didn't come.
Two of our three daughters had their weddings at the Manor/Carriage House. Obviously, we love the service, staff and professionalism. They absolutely thought of everything. Working with Shannon was an absolute delight. She was calm, patient and a lot of fun!
EXCEPTIONAL!!! My daughter's wedding took place at Manor House 4th of July weekend...both the ceremony and reception took place in the Carriage House, the perfect fit for our style - rustic elegance. The space was beyond beautiful, but location is only one of many details necessary in hosting a memorable wedding...it's the people working for you (often behind the scenes) that pull it all together AND Manor House hit it out of the park! The MH team who attended to our evening were exceptionally friendly and attentive...our guests noticed and commented. The leader of this team was our sales manager, Shannon Wullenweber. Shannon is "top notch" in the industry and an absolute gem to work with. Thank you Manor House for helping us create a dream wedding!
The Manor House was the perfect fit for our big day! They accommodated all our special requests to help us plan and execute our dream wedding. We had the main building to ourselves pretty much all day. We used one of the smaller banquet rooms for a lunch buffet, used the outdoor entrance space for a Baraat and Oonjal ceremony, the atrium for our traditional south Indian wedding, and the Georgian ballroom for our reception. They were great in helping us tailor the regular packages to our needs. On the day of they were very attentive and had multiple staff members helping us make sure everything went smoothly.
Everything was perfect!!
ABSOLUTE PERFECTION. From the very beginning of the planning process up until our wedding day, Manor House made the process easy and enjoyable. The venue is stunningly beautiful, the ambience is great, and the food was amazing - but hands down the Manor House staff is what sets them apart from other venues. Truly extraordinary. There were no hiccups or bumps along the way and everything that was promised to us was delivered and then some thanks to our Sales Manager, Shannon, who was a dream to work with. She wanted my wedding day to be as perfect as I did and it showed in the care they took down to every last detail. As soon as the wedding party pulled up to the reception we were immediately greeted by the Banquet Manager, Naila, and ushered into a private room with Champagne and appetizers. Her poise and professionalism throughout the night was exceptional and she set the tone for the entire evening. We were also assigned a captain, Christine, who took care of us the entire evening, and it was like having a "right hand man" to take care of whatever we needed. The owners, Bill and Kathy, are wonderful people and they really know what they are doing. Our reception was magical and the entire staff went above and beyond to make us feel like royalty for a night. I couldn't ask for a better experience.
The event went well, everyone seemed happy but there was just something that bug me the whole night. A manager I do not want to say her name but you will know who I'm talking about if you have her in your room. She is not nice to her employees. I ran into her yelling at these kids, these kids are here to have a job they were serving us perfectly fine and for some reason they were getting yelled at for not bussing the tables. Even though from what I could see the tables are fine if I can remember my servers name I would personally thank him he made my night and he was a very kind and generous young man . Thank you to all the Manor House servers and everything you guys do for us the guest.
If the knot only offered more than 5 stars the Manor House would get every one! My family and I could not be more pleased with our experience there. Shannon walked us through exactly what we could expect if we booked and the service staff backed that up to the nines!! I was so detail oriented on EVERYTHING I wanted for my wedding that after meeting the Manor House staff I knew I was in good hands. I think every wedding is special but mine felt magical. We had a lot of out-of-town guests and they raved the next morning about how lovely they thought the reception site was. I can't wait to plan a milestone wedding anniversary party there!!
I am overall extremely pleased with my choice of Manor House for our Wedding Ceremony and Reception Venue. Our Wedding Coordinator was Michelle- she was great to work with. She was very quick to respond to my emails and any last minute changes. My only complaint is that Manor House does run a very strict timeline, and I had not realized it at the time, but as we booked a Friday wedding, we did not have a lot of time for photos before it got dark. Everything else was exceptional- the food was great, the staff was extremely helpful, and my Banquet Manager, Nick, truly saved my wedding when my cake did not arrive (I didn't even realize it because I was so involved in photos and keeping the Wedding Party on task). When Nick realized the cake had not arrived he talked to me, then called the bakery himself and got them to bring it (the bakery had forgotten my cake!!!) in time for the cake cutting. I would absolutely recommend Manor House to anyone, although if you are planning a Fall Wedding in the evening I would advise doing your photos at a different location beforehand so you can get all the pictures you want. Despite time allocation for photos I could not be more pleased with Manor House as Nick literally saved my wedding by making sure the bakery delivered the cake.
The venue is stunning! The staff was all so great to work with. Michelle was so patient with me and responded very quickly to my emails. The night of the wedding Nick did a fabulous job making sure everything was going smoothly and ensuring we had everything we needed. They helped to make my dream wedding reality.
Pretty PerfectReviewed on 8/24/2015 Kelsey Z
The Carriage House here is unbelievable and is absolutely gorgeous. Ceremony costs are $2,000, but you also get a bridal and groom's suite to get ready in. Picture potential is amazing. The reception room was absolutely gorgeous. Dance floor, linens, silverware, food, alcohol, and day-of coordinator are all included in the food and beverage cost. I would say the cost is reasonable overall, especially for a gorgeous wedding. The food is extremely good and very high quality. We only had a couple of communication hiccups, but overall, everything was perfect. Manor House helped make my day PERFECT, and I will cherish it even more because of their hard work.
Extremely satisfied!Reviewed on 8/18/2015 Stacy B
I could not have been happier with the Manor House! When we started looking for places in the Dayton/Cincinnati area to have our wedding, we were looking for a place similar to the Manor House where we could have both the ceremony and reception at the same location. Even other venues we visited had heard of the Manor House and had very positive things to say about the place. Once we checked it out, we knew this was the place for us. Linda was our coordinator, and she was extremely helpful and made everything very easy for me, especially since I was planning from out of town. This venue does everything for you, like providing the food, drinks, decorations, and staff. They coordinate with all of your vendors for you in terms of set up/drop off times. They provide several assistants throughout your wedding night so that you really don’t have to worry about the smaller details (family/bridal party lining up for ceremony, getting everyone over to the reception hall, set up, clean up). They really have thought of everything! The venue is absolutely gorgeous, both the outside scenery for photos as well as parts inside. We chose to have our ceremony at the Carriage House and our reception was in one of the reception halls. We have seen a few preview photos from our photographer, and the scenery is really ideal for photos. Even if the weather is bad, there are several places indoors or under an awning that work as well. The food was excellent, and they have a variety of options to choose from. All staff was professional and extremely helpful. Although it is on the pricier end for a venue in Ohio, I truly think it was worth every penny.
Spectacular! The Manor House as a wedding venue was beyond fabulous. We worked with Shannon and our special night could not have been more perfect. From the Ceremony in the beautiful Atrium to the Cocktails in the Gardens and the Reception in the Ball Room..every detail was addressed. Shannon was so professional and easy to work with...she was was my lifeline. We couldn't be more pleased with our experience.
We had the most absolutely beautiful wedding in the atrium followed by an even more impeccable reception in the Carolina room. Service was wonderful, our guests are still talking about how great the food was. It was very easy and perfect for our desire to have our wedding and reception in the same location, and with beautiful grounds for photos. My only multi-point complaint – our sales person told us we would not have any conflicts with another wedding/reception…this happened TWICE within an hour. First, when I was trying to leave my bridal suite, my path to exit was blocked by the food cases for the dinner in the reception that was taking place directly across from my bridal suite. Second, when I tried to have my first glance, there was another bridal party that had intruded in our rented portion of the venue. It almost ruined a very special moment. Third, when we finished our ceremony in the atrium, there were groups of guests walking through the atrium during our pictures. I was so distracted during all of the interruptions, and very upset that I was PROMISED this wouldn’t happen…my pictures still turned out ok, but I had to constantly chase people down from the Manor house to try to re-direct the guests from a different wedding. I was very upset that there was not more staff to help maintain and direct the other weddings/receptions. While I understand this is a multi-event center, I was also promised that my biggest fear of having other bridal parties intrude in our rented space would not happen and it did. With all that said, I would recommend this event center with caution. Know that you will not have what is promised when they say you will have complete privacy. The food is fantastic, and the food/beverage service is perfect.
