On the 12th of October, 2013 Our family united at the Castle for my wedding. We have stayed many times here and we wanted to share this location with our loved ones because it has been so beloved by my wife and I for some time. Not your typical rooms if your used to major hotel chains, these rooms are elegant and reminiscent of a more romantic time in our history. The furnishings of each room are beautiful antiques unlike anything your Mor, United, ashley, or Tracys have to offer these day. REAL wood that crafted, not assembled in a warehouse. The library quickly captured our hearts for these reasons and we knew there was no better place for us to wed.
Price was very reasonable. The hotel will work with you on blocking rooms together with a discount if you would like family to stay with you. Bob, the restaurant manager, acts as a sort of planner or helper at no additional cost in the rental fee. He helped us with seating arrangements, timing of events, chair decorating, dinner planning, dining room chair decorating, and drink planning. We purchased our own table runners, colored napkins, napkin rings, flower arrangements, candle holders, and accents while Bob provided chair covers, table linens, silverware, plates, and glassware. We decided to go with Bobs cooking staff for the catering and went with the deluxe option buffet dining. Prime rib perfectly cooked, salmon, chicken with mushroom picata, the best risotto I have ever had, arugula salad, rolls, vegetable medley and more.
Everything went so smooth it was unbelievable. Plenty of room in the bridal suite for the bride to get ready. In between the wedding and dinner reception the bar was open so family could grab a drink while pictures were being taken. When dinner was ready everything smoothly transitioned to the dining hall where we had an incredible meal. I can't say enough how amazing the Chef Jason is at preparing his prime rib and risotto. He is truly an artist. Many drinks were had and everyone had the time of their life on the dance floor. With all the reception, decorations, dress, my kilt, and all we stayed within a 10K budget were more than satisfied with everything. I included some photos my photographer took with permission for trip advisor to use. I'm the one in the Scott family kilt. There is much I can say more but I feel I would go on forever so I will post a few pictures of the dining hall after my best man and Bob decorated and a couple wedding photos so you can see the beauty of it all your self. I had a friend get married here 11/13/2013 because he liked it so much and a few more friends planning weddings here now too.
