The venue is beautiful! I stayed at the nearby hotel to attend the ceremony and reception. Everything was very convenient. The food and service was excellent. The employees were friendly and helpful. I had a wonderful time there. I would recommend for brides looking for a... Read More unique, spacious and elegant venue.

My daughter and son in law had their wedding here. Since we lived out of town we never saw the venue except for photos on their website. As they say looks are deceiving!! The carpet in the ballroom had stains all over them like they have not been cleaned in years. The... Read More curtains also had stains on them. We had the chairs set up in the ballroom for the ceremony and had to pay an additional $400+ for chair covers as there were stains on every chair. You can't expect your guests to sit on chairs that were disgustingly dirty. The champagne toast (which we paid for) was never done, the food was being served before the bride and groom were announced. There was no organization among the staff. The owner and his son are very very rude!! All they are worried about is the almighty dollar. I know they have had a large turn around of sales people, as my daughter has gone through 3 or 4 of them, however, Breann did the best she could. The food was ok - nothing to write home about. Some of the guests were not even done eating when the servers were trying to take their plates away. We were told by the staff at the rehearsal that after the wedding we could take the party out to the Lagoon Bar as they are open usually till 1:00am and continue with our family and friends, however, they were having a party out there and if we wanted to stay had to pay $10 pp. Really!! Also beware if they have your credit card they will take it upon themselves to charge against it as they did with ours which they replied "oops sorry must of been a mistake. We asked the owner to credit the over $1400 charge back to our card immediately his response was - "call your bank and figure it out yourself." Really!! If you were thinking of this venue don't walk but run away. There are other venues out there that are more bridal friendly with better customer service. A very stressful day for all!

I highly recommend The Fountains if you are planning the wedding of your dreams. The Ballroom is sophisticated and pristine. But what I loved the most about the venue is that my bridesmaids and I were able to get ready in their adorably decorated bridal salons. Sharing my day... Read More with my girls made it so memorable. They will even cater lunch while you get ready. I had my ceremony outside on the terrace under a canopy graced with a chandelier and it couldn't have been more picturesque. It was a very happy experience made perfect by the staff who wanted the best for me and my family.

My son and now daughter in law, recently held their reception at The Fountains. Every decor detail was perfect and the food and service were beyond what we imagined.

With the help of the Fountains, my wedding day was absolutely flawless!! I did not hire a day of wedding planner, so I had a lot on myself and my family for setting up and making sure everything was ready to go. Breann made sure everything was set up exactly how I wanted it so... Read More everything was ready to go the day of. They took care of the last minute candle lighting (and I mean a lot of candles) and made sure the table settings were perfect for when guests arrived. We chose the buffet option and the food was amazing!!!! (I had the Seafood Newberg on our honeymoon and was disappointed because it did not even compare to what we had at our wedding!!) And to top it off- they surprised us with their new addition of colored lights on the ceilings during our first dance :-) We were totally amazed at what a difference it made and how they went the extra mile to accommodate my many requests and last minute changes. We had 175 guests from all over the country- many of who are very well established in their communities and said this was the most beautiful wedding they had been to.

I recently had my wedding at the fountains, I am very picky and detailed I did a lot of the decor myself, My coordinator at the fountains was Breann, she took my vision and ran with it, it absolutely took my breath away when I came down the stairs and saw the room for the first...
