Fabulous venue and experience!

Reviewed on 7/10/2015 Kelsey B

The TLDR of this review is: the service, scenery, and food that this venue provides is fantastic, especially at the prices they charge. BHP is SO affordable, and it's unbelievable that you get what you do for what you pay. - Everyone we spoke to (especially Tara and Mollie)... Read More were so delightful and may have been more excited for our wedding than we were! From day one, Tara was on the ball, answering my ridiculous emails that I would send in the middle of the night so quickly, I swear she never stops working. She was so helpful throughout the entire planning process and had the answers to all of my questions. The venue itself is very beautiful. When I started looking for a venue, I was leaning towards a barn or inn, because I loved that aesthetic. However, some of our family members have trouble walking and getting around, so a lot of the older buildings got nixed from the list just for inaccessibility. BHP had the best mix for me that reassured me that my guests would be comfortable and also gave me that beautiful open air look I wanted. The exposed beams of the ceiling in the ballroom are absolutely breathtaking and made it look so much different from a typical wedding ballroom. The pergola where we had the ceremony was so lovely, and I loved that my guests could go right from the ceremony to the cocktail hour to the reception without much walking or hassle. The golf course gave us beautiful natural scenery for our pictures. We requested to have a food tasting before we booked because we are self-admitted food snobs, which Tara and the chef were happy to accommodate. The food was SO GOOD at the tasting that we were ready to put down a deposit after just eating the salads. Chef Jorge was so fun and passionate about the food that we knew we were in good hands. On the day before the wedding, we stopped by to drop off all of our little details and odds and ends for the wedding. Mollie and Tara were so organized and took copious notes on where everything was supposed to go so I had no worries on the day of that everything would look fabulous (and it did!!). The day of the wedding, it was all hands on deck, and there were so many helpful and wonderful staff there to assist us with everything. Mollie was on the ball and quickly got us anything we needed and kept us on our timeline. The only negative thing I have to comment on was that almost every single steak that was served during our reception was very overcooked (very well done). We had discussed having all of the steaks cooked to medium rare, so it was a little disappointing to have the steak be overcooked. We asked to have our steak redone because it was more or less inedible, and the second time it came back, it was still overcooked. HOWEVER all of the other food was absolutely delicious, and in the end, there was plenty of other food to eat, so it wasn't as if we went hungry. That was the one and only thing that went wrong throughout our entire experience, so I am still happy to give BHP 5 stars regardless. The dessert room BHP provided was ridiculous and fun. We didn't tell any of our guests about it, so when it was opened and announced, people were so excited to have something other than boring old cake to eat! All of the treats were delicious and my husband still talks about the bread pudding months later. Overall, BHP is a such wonderful venue and I'd recommend it to anyone who is looking for a venue at any budget.


Blue Heron is the perfect venue!

I don't even know where to start, so many great things to say about Blue Heron Pines. Our wedding was there on 11/12/16. Everything was perfect and I would recommend them to everyone and anyone! I got ready in the bridal suite which is a great amenity. We used the golf carts for... Read More pictures which is great because we were able to get pictures in multiple locations. We had 149 people and it was not crowded. Our ceremony was outside and then cocktail hour was in the tent. The staff was friendly and attentive. The food was awesome! I wish I ate more appetizers, they were so good! We served our cake in the dessert room with an ice cream bar. It looked beautiful and our guests loved it. I upgraded the linens and it was so worth it. My guests loved the exposed beams in the ceilings, so did my husband and I, one of the reasons why we picked the venue. Our food tasting was amazing and fun. The event team, Tara and Kristen, were so helpful and answered all my many emails. They decorated perfectly and were on point with everything. They helped with every step along the way. This was a huge plus, I didn't need to hire anyone to help me because these women had everything handled. Overall we Loved Blue Heron Pines, if it were up to me everyone would get married there!

My husband and I booked this venue two years in advance (8/14). In those two years, Tara was there for us- month after month, assuring me that we were on the right track with planning. She was honest, compassionate and personable. She was also quick to talk to via phone or... Read More email. I can't say enough good about her. Kristin was great too- she helped with details before the wedding and made it easy for me to explain what we wanted the decor to look like and the timeline. During that time, my nerves were apparent and I started getting scatter brained but Kristen kept me on track which was much appreciated. When it came time for the wedding, everything was perfect. Tara, her whole staff and Krista (maitre de) were there every step of the way making sure our day went smooth. Krista was actually the best touch of the night- she continually made sure our needs were met (full drinks, ensured our time line was stuck too and that we ate). Our Guest continue to tell us that the food was amazing (especially the variety offered) and the bartenders were great making sure drinks were efficiently made :) Thanks Kathy and Ann Marie!!! The whole experience was perfect and we cant thank BHP enough for the exceptional service, great food and beautiful venue. I would chose BHP over and over again... and you should too!
