Don't miss out and don't fret, if you're looking at St. Andrew's- you have found the gem you are looking for! We had a beautiful ceremony at my home Catholic Parish 15 minutes away and a FLAWLESS reception at St. Andrew's! The wedding coordinator Jenna is calm, collected,... Read More and an expert. She will see you through all details with patience, clarity, and exceptional performance. She can turn any simple idea into your dream and an affordable masterpieces. I thought when cooking for 300 people that I should be a little worried about what dinner would taste like...but NO- it was all delicious and exactly what the tasting session gave us. The scene was unforgettable, joyous, and everything my husband and I wanted to begin our life's journey as one with our dearest family and friends. St. Andrew's and the exquisite staff for all their work and efforts to make this day everything it could be and more. The evening flowed smoothly without any extra efforts on our part and the guests could tell- we made the right choice. :)

Jenna Sayers was a wonderful event coordinator for our wedding reception. St. Andrews was the perfect venue for our family and friends.

She introduced us to the staff and respected the roles that each person played in making St. Andrews the perfect venue. The evening itself was well organized. She offered creative suggestions for making the cocktail hour and reception areas beautiful. She was attentive and added details to the Trophy and St. Andrews room to make our event personal and fun. Her calm demeanor and ability to anticipate a need supported us completely. The St. Andrews room was spacious, warm and welcoming. It offered a wonderful combination of beautiful natural light and the inside glow of candles and ambient lighting. Guests could move easily from place to place to join in conversations. There were multiple rooms to use for relaxing as well as gathering with small groups. The large ballroom was ideal for eating and dancing. The evening was truly memorable. Our entrée choices of marinated sirloin, stuffed chicken and portabella mushroom were hot and delicious. The coffee was hot and the wine was chilled. The wait staff was prompt, friendly and professional. Our guests were delighted with the wonderful food and impressed with the overall meal experience. In addition to the great inside spaces, St. Andrews offered a beautiful, clean and well maintained outside space. The multiple seating areas offered fresh air and a beautiful setting for couples and small groups to gather. Photos will be beautiful with the manicured flowers, trees and water options. With Jenna’s leadership we had a wonderful experience. She was a joy to work with and I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for a gracious, beautiful and fun reception experience.

We chose St. Andrews because of the outside ceremony area and Shica.

The St. Andrews staff was just as wonderful...they were all so nice and accommodating...making sure ALL of the guests were taken care of! Two perks of this venue would be; the bridal suite...it's HUGE and newly updated (my fav) and the fact that they shuttled our guests on golf carts down to the ceremony site (everyone thought that was so cool!). My entire bridal party, including my mom and aunt, were able to hang out all day, relax and get ready in the bridal suite...definitely a plus in my book! I highly recommend this venue for your wedding! SUPERIOR SERVICE!!!

After deciding to have our ceremony and reception at St. Andrews, the one thing we heard over and over from various vendors was St. Andrews is "a hidden gem." This is absolutely the truth! The entire grounds are beautiful, and for our purposes the floor made for a generous dance... Read More space. The staff was top notch, and we never had anything short of a great experience whenever we met with them. Without a doubt, our day went so perfectly because of the hard work, dedication, talent, and absolute love that those working there have for what they do so well. Jude and Joe were both warm and friendly. They care about everything that happens under their watch, and went out of their way to make us feel at home. Sam, the chef, sat down with us to plan out the menu, and was very charming and attentive. A special thanks goes out to him for dealing with my dietary restrictions with a smile and skill. We had a lot of compliments on the food that night. Without a doubt, that was the best slice of beef I have had in my life, and many a guest shared my enthusiasm. And finally, the absolute jewel of our experience with St. Andrews was Jenna, the Event Coordinator. I have rarely met such a hard working individual with an attention to detail and love of her work. Jenna immediately made us feel at ease about the daunting task of organizing a wedding. She was always available to answer a question, gave us so many great ideas and suggestions, took care of so many minute details that may have never occurred to us, and did it all with grace and calmness. Our wedding went so perfectly because Jenna made sure it did. At every step she made certain we were happy, all the way to and throughout the big day, and we cannot thank her enough. St. Andrews is a hidden gem, to be certain. I'd grown up with it nearby most of my life, driven past it hundreds of times, and never thought to myself "that is where I'll be married." Now that I did, I can't imagine myself doing any different. It was a perfect wedding, and I have St. Andrews to thank for that.

Jenna acted as the coordinator the day of the reception, setting up tables, name cards, wedding favors, card box, cake carving set, etc. She also requested all names/phone numbers for all other vendors so she could be sure they arrived on time.
