Most MAGICAL night of our livesReviewed on 1/07/2014 Brittany H
Our night with Planterra was the most magical night of our lives. If you are looking to feel like a princess and be treated like princess then you have found the right vendor. Planterra made planning my wedding such an easy process. They take care of literally everything for you. No hassle of picking out centerpieces or flowers, because they take your inspirations/ideas/and pictures and create a reality. We showed up to our floral/centerpiece meeting anticipating a day of tough decisions but when we walked in to the meeting our center pieces were sitting in front of us and were EXACTLY what I wanted. We received compliments on this venue ALL NIGHT telling us it was the best wedding they had ever gone to and that it was so magical and romantic. It saddens me to write this review because it means our wedding is already over. However knowing how wonderful the night was, brings a smile back to my face. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU PLANTERRA. You are forever a part of our hearts. The Hendersons
AMAZING!Reviewed on 10/30/2013 Elisabethe c
Not only is the scenery amazing, the customer service is above any I've ever had. They made sure to cater to us and allow us some private space just for us for when we became overwhelmed. One of the best venues in the area!

The Venue was a fairytale. From the moment I walked in to see the venue, David was there to help out. All the planning and discussing, I was so anxious to see how it would all turn out on the big day. Seeing the vision come together was more than I could ever ask for. The food was incredible, and I couldn't have asked for better help on the day of. Everything went so smoothly, I absolutely recommend this venue for someone else's fairy tale.

David at the Planterra is amazing!!! We had our wedding ceremony here and it was wonderful. They did our bouquets and it was exactly what I wanted. The only glitch was after we were pronounced husband and wife...they didn't start playing our song to exit down the aisle. It was awkward but everything else went amazingly.
Beautiful CeremonyReviewed on 11/10/2013 Shelley H
We loved the Planterra from the moment we saw it. We knew it would be the perfect space for our unique wedding - no one we know has ever gotten married in a place like this! Too bad the office staff is inconsiderate and incompetent. They obviously know brides and grooms will put up with their crap to have their wedding at this venue. More than once I called, ready to drive up there with our deposit after coordinating with the reception site for a wedding date that both had available, only to find that they already gave our date to someone else. Only a few days had passed each time, and they gave us no waring or put a hold on the dates for me to have enough time to get in touch with our reception venue. We had problems on more than one occasion, and the Event Coordinator, David, was pompous and rude our first few meetings. We were only having our ceremony there and they seemed not to care about us since they weren't getting as much money as they would for the entire wedding. After dozens of email from multiple people, things finally started falling into place. The rehearsal went smoothly thanks to Jen, she really changed my opinion of the people working there after just an hour or so. Thankfully she is working there, she should be the only one allowed to communicate with the public. While they were a nightmare to deal with, they do know how to throw a wedding, and everything was gorgeous on our big day. The perk about having your wedding here is that they include the officiant, a musician, flowers, and a toast at the end! I would recommend this place SOLELY on the wow-factor and how beautiful our pictures are!
Great setting but needed more attention to detailReviewed on 2/17/2013 Sarah C
great place for a beautiful wedding, though we were running around the afternoon of the wedding trying to get things looking like we requested. Had several conversations about the same thing, and took a few tries for them to get it right. Make sure to micromanage the event contact if you want to use this venue!
Ceremony & Reception at PlanterraReviewed on 12/13/2012 Ann L
Very unique and romantic setting, especially at night. The staff is wonderful and they take care of everything. You can be involved as much, or as little, as you want in the details. They do floral, rentals, food (very yummy), decorations, linens, etc. You only need a DJ, photographer, and cake. It's perfect for busy brides! My only complaint was that they upcharged us handsomely for adding a local microbrew to the beer selection, and then only purchased 1 case of 24 bottles. It was gone within 30 minutes. Other than that little glitch, everything was wonderful.
