I can't say enough good things about Nazareth Hall! We recently had our wedding and reception here and everything was perfect! Having worked here throughout high school and college, I had very high expectations. Nazareth Hall absolutely lived up to my expectations and then some!... Read More Natalie in the office was absolutely wonderful to work with! She was very quick to respond to every single question I had (and I had a lot, lol!) and made it incredibly easy to plan everything from out of town. The staff for the day of our wedding was awesome, including our hostess, Sydney, who took such great care of us and always seemed to appear right when we needed her! The food was absolutely divine (we had passed Hors d'oeuvres- bruschetta, oriental chicken bites, and spanakopita, as well as a buffet dinner- chicken florentine, braised beef with gravy, garlic mashers, and california blend), and of course the building itself is just unbelievably beautiful. Thanks Nazareth Hall for making our big day so special!!

Great venue and service

The venue speaks for itself and the food was delicious. The customer service was more than what I expected after I arrived and noticed the table linens were a bit different than what I had expected. The team remedied the issue immediately and reset all of the tables. Top... Read More notch service and again... beautiful venue all around... grotto, chapel, cadet west.

Overall, Nazareth Hall was great to work with and is such a beautiful venue! For the most part, the planning process went very smoothly. They didn't mind answering our million questions and were always very responsive. However, about two or three months before the wedding, our... Read More event coordinator left the company and no one told us. It took us about two weeks to finally get in contact with someone, which was a little frustrating. The day of the wedding was mostly smooth, with some hiccups here and there (like having WAY too many chairs at the ceremony and some mess ups with specific meal requests that we had made prior to the wedding). However, our wedding was absolutely beautiful and everyone had a great time! The food was delicious and the bar was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. Sydney was a great hostess and made sure to keep us aware of event timelines we had prepared, which was super helpful to make sure we stayed on track with timing. She helped us with whatever we needed with a smile! Other than the event coordinator transition issue we experienced, we would have absolutely given Nazareth Hall five stars.

Nazareth Hall made our wedding day an absolute dream. From the start, they communicated clearly and replied very quickly to any questions we had. We were able to try some of the menu items not only at our tasting session, but also at their delicious Sunday brunch. As planning... Read More went on, we changed our menu decision and went with a lighter and also more affordable meal since our wedding was on July 4th. Everyone was very easy to work with and bounce ideas off of, which we very much appreciated! The Bridal Room was so convenient, as we live about an hour away from the venue. The lighting is great and just a great girly space to get ready in the day of. The venue provided a snack tray and champagne which was so nice but would have been even better to know about in advance since we had brought a bunch of snacks! We rented a classroom for the guys to hang out in which was very beneficial as well. We chose to have our ceremony at The Grotto, a shaded outdoor area on the grounds which is so unique and beautiful. Our reception was in the Ladyglen Ballroom. Our guests enjoyed dancing, the overhead view from the 2nd story, and also the outdoor patio. Pretty much anywhere you look at on the grounds of Nazareth Hall is beautiful and classic. Overall, we would choose Nazareth Hall and their staff a thousand times over.

I want to give Nazareth Hall 5 stars, but there were far too many problems at our reception. Let me begin by saying that this is a gorgeous venue. It's a beautiful campus. And the staff is wonderful. However, the management is suspect at best. Two weeks before the reception, we... Read More met with our coordinator and made some changes (i.e. added appetizers, extra 30 minutes for bar and reception, changed salad selection), all of which cost more money. None of these changes were in effect on the day of the reception. The salad was wrong. Servers were supposed to be carrying shrimp cocktail and mac n' cheese bites on trays in the foyer. That didn't happen. We didn't even get those apps until my mother-in-law complained to the staff. They sent the apps out to the tables with the salad. Even though we paid for an extra half hour, the reception still ended at 10, not 10:30. And the cherry on top; our coordinator wasn't working that day and no one could reach her. We told management about the issues that we had and they offered us a refund, which was a small fraction of what we paid for the extras. Needless to say, even though our reception was beautiful, I would not recommend Nazareth Hall to anyone.

Providing excellent customer service is our top priority. We again apologize for the miscommunication that occurred during the planning of your event.

Nazareth Hall is one of the most beautiful venues I have ever seen. We held our wedding ceremony in the Grotto which is a gorgeous outdoor location. Nazareth Hall has many different ballrooms and we held our wedding reception in the Ladyglen Ballroom which is a beautiful... Read More ballroom with a balcony, dance floor, stage and outdoor patio. Kevin Brown and the staff of Nazareth are wonderful. They helped in every step of planning the wedding, reception and dinner. On the day of the wedding we had the personal touch with a hostess at our side all day to help with questions or whatever we may have needed. I would highly recommend Nazareth Hall for any function from a wedding to a baby shower.

I originally chose Nazareth Hall as my wedding venue because of the beauty of the Grotto (just one of their ceremony sites). Then, I fell in love with the Ladyglen East ballroom (just one of their several reception areas). When I learned that they handle almost everything, from... Read More the table settings and linens, to the food, to the bartenders and a day of hostess, I was sold! Many brides have something to stress about on their big day. Not me! Nazareth Hall took care of everything. I had not a care in the world on my wedding day, thanks to the folks at Nazareth. I couldn't have imagined a more perfect place for my wedding!! You will not regret choosing Nazareth Hall as your venue!

Beautiful location, but a lot of money

Nazareth is a beautiful place, especially the grotto! Though it is pricey, you get a lot for the price. Unfortunately, we could not book them--they're always booked!--mainly due to the fact that they were out of our budget.

There's no question that Nazareth Hall is a beautiful, unique venue and one of the best in the area. But if you're also looking for a top notch service as well, this is also your best bet. We were so pleased with the entire staff at Nazareth Hall--everyone from the...

They went over and above to make sure our wedding was wonderful in every way. Our amazing hostess was always prepared when we needed her, and our other vendors were familiar with the hall and staff, which made for a worry and stress-free day. If we could do it all over again, we would still book Nazareth Hall without a doubt. We received overwhelmingly positive comments from our guests as well, especially about the food. If budget is a concern, consider a winter wedding--it's absolutely stunning!!

I had wanted to get married at Nazareth Hall since I was a little girl and in May my dreams came true. From the moment I started planning with Kevin, to our sparkler exit from our reception, and every moment in between I was completely happy with my experience. It's pricey,... Read More but not too far off from anywhere else in the area and they are up front with the costs and work with you. Worth every penny though. They take such good care of you and treat every bride as if they are the only one they are concerned with. My one and only recommendation is if you have your ceremony out on the lawn off Lady Glen like I did, don't get a isle runner. It was a tripping hazard and blows all over the place. That is honestly the only thing I would have changed. It was perfect.

We held our wedding in the Grotto with our reception at Cadet West. The setting was perfect! The Grotto is beautiful in the summer and Cadet West is always beautiful. We had so many compliments on the venue itself, as well as how helpful the staff were. The chef was very... Read More accommodating for our menu. We had tasted a chicken selection at the Bridal Show and fell in love with it. Even though that selection was not on the menu of options for taste testing (it should be!) the chef let us use it as one of our buffet options. This was not the cheapest venue we visited, but by having our wedding on a Friday we were able to make it happen (there is a minimum cost on Saturdays). (We had 140 guests and the cost was about $8000. Still expensive to us, but worth it for the quality of food and the atmosphere.) I was treated well by the staff, who were amazing! Our wedding coordinator made sure that we had everything we needed and helped me with the train to my gown before the ceremony (something dads just don't know how to do). They took my parent's keys and loaded our gifts and decorations in my parents' car at the end of the night. I can't recommend this venue enough! It made our day perfect!
