Dream Wedding VenueReviewed on 2/26/2015 Jenny N
From the moment I stepped foot at this venue, I knew it had to be the one. We are not beachy people, but there was just such charm to it and that it was completely different from a typical wedding. Lauren was our coordinator there and she was so amazing. She went above and beyond what I can ever imagine a venue coordinator to do. She responded to all my emails in a timely manner and would assure me that I wasn't crazy with all my questions and requests :) One of the best parts of this venue is that we were able to provide our own alcohol and that we were able to use Food Trucks as our catering which were really important to us! I had so many DIY things that I was worried about the time I would spend setting everything up. Since we were an off-season wedding, we were able to come in Thursday to set most everything up and then Lauren and her crew finished off everything Saturday before the wedding. I was a little concerned about space because I had about 225 people come, but the seating for the ceremony was perfect. The inside was a tight squeeze, but we all fit and the venue was just great! Being able to be upstairs and downstairs for different parts was really nice! It made people mingle more which was great. Lauren and her crew packed up everything for us to pick up the next day which was so incredible. We are definitely coming back for our future vow renewal!
We had our reception and ceremony here and enjoyed every part of the process and Venue. We chose Verandas specifically for its layout. His side was from the east coast and mine was from the west. By having a double level venue it allowed us to encourage the mixing of the groups. Because you have to go upstairs to dance it prevents you from using your table as a crutch and being a wallflower. The venue gives you a personal wedding planner to help guide you in the process. The manage the planning on-site only meaning you have to pick our own Florist, DJ, decor style, etc. But they handle linens, guide you through food and bar choices, and are your day of on the ground coordinator. It is so surprising how helpful someone like that can be from planning the rehearsal and processional, to communicating with vendors and the rest of the venue staff. It's not just the big stuff either! They also had Champagne waiting for the bridal party as we exited the ceremony and had a plate of appetizers for me in my bridal suite so I wouldn't have to go hunt down food! These tiny details made a huge difference. Every time I talked to my planner Angie, she made me feel so much better by keeping me calm through the process and giving me helpful reminders and guidance. Verandas is fairly expensive, but WELL worth the $$$!
Amazing VenueReviewed on 11/15/2011 Rosie R
I had my wedding here on 10.8.11. Contrary to what other reviews have said about it being small, we had 193 guests and everyone fit perfectly - both outside for the ceremony and inside for the remainder of the evening. I didn't hear or notice ANY outside noise, which was great. The venue feels so intimate and special because it's just you and your guests, and it feels like you are having a big party in a home. Our coordinator, Lauren, was amazing from start to finish and went above and beyond anything and everything we requested. She made suggestions that were better than what we had thought of but without being pushy. She set up everything for us, including the votives, which saved my florist time. They also packed everything up for us and labeled the boxes with our belongings. The food was amazing! To serve 193 people the staff was fast, efficient, and the food was piping hot and so fresh! The staff does a great job of meeting your needs and being attentive while also being discreet. I even saw a server come down with a tray of drink refills for a table (since the bars were upstairs). Now that's service! Did I mention yet how good the food was? They sent us home with extra food! Two entrees with their side dishes and a plate of our appetizers. My husband and I enjoyed these the next day and the day after, since we were too tired to cook. The two bartenders Matt and Christine were great and accommodated our wide selection of beer (we brought in our own alcohol- another plus to Verandas!) Verandas also has free self-parking, the lot is huge, and guests can leave their car overnight if they have a little too much to drink. I honestly cannot think of one bad thing to say about Verandas, the food, their staff, and the service. I didn't worry about one thing during the rehearsal or the wedding and had a stress-free amazing event. You will not be disappointed with Verandas and all they have to offer.
