Chateau Briand Reviews

Date posted: May 2, 2015
Review: We got married last fall at the Chateau Briand. We decided that we wanted to go all-out with our wedding! We were a little unsure at first, because we didn’t know if we could really afford it, but you only get married once, and you want to make it as amazing as you possibly can, you know? So we set a budget and went venue-shopping. There were a few different spots that we could have chose within the budget we set, but there was no contest when we visited the Chateau Briand. They have this grand sweeping staircase, a beautiful lobby with two roaring fireplaces, and a baby grand piano! They have these blue and purple lights along the ceiling that make the entire space really glow. The floor is reflective and picks up the lighting, making the room glow even more. That was just the beginning. We thought the lobby was incredible, and then they showed us around and we saw all the different ballrooms and banquet areas and the breathtaking gardens! We ended up falling in love with the “Oasis” area. It’s an outdoor “garden,” but it’s so much more than a garden. It’s hard to describe. There is comfortable seating, not just tables and chairs, but couches and cushions and everything. There are little pavilions with curtains and warm lighting, potted plants, ceiling fans (which we didn’t need, but they would have been perfect for a warm summer night), waterfalls, pools of water, and more! They also have fireplaces out here, which we did make good use of. It wasn’t cold the night of our wedding, but it was definitely on the chilly side. With the fireplaces, it was perfectly comfortable, and they added to the ambiance. Ambiance is really what we were all about. We wanted our venue to have that magical atmosphere, to really transport us out of the mundane, away from everyday life. We did feel like we’d been whisked away to a magical place! Our guests kept telling us how this was the most beautiful wedding venue they had ever been to, and however did we find it? They were even more astonished when we told them the price! It was seriously nothing compared to the prices that a lot of the other places were quoting us. It was the top of a short list. If we’d paid less, we’d have been stuck with a factory-type venue that was the same as every other venue out there and cut a lot of corners. If we’d paid more … believe it or not, I’m not sure we’d have actually gotten more! We saw more expensive venues that were as beautiful as this one, but more beautiful? I can’t remember a one that had an outdoor space that compared with the Oasis. We had such a great time here. I’m so glad our wedding was the magical event we always dreamed of. The Chateau was perfect for our needs! I’d love to come back and have another smaller party sometime here. The Oasis would be perfect for an intimate gathering!

Review: How many venues did we visit before we settled on Chateau Briand? I didn’t even want to think about it, but I counted, and it was at least fourteen. Yep, fourteen venues that utterly wasted our time and did not impress us! It was a long several days until we found Chateau Briand, and our search came to an end. Good thing too, because we were down to a handful to check out. We were starting to worry we’d never find the perfect venue for our wedding, and that we’d have to settle for something below our standards. Then we met Susan at Chateau Briand, who showed us around and instantly made us feel like we mattered! She was very friendly and immediately lightened our moods with her easy-going demeanor and her obvious commitment to making us happy. It was like we were talking to an old friend or relative, and like she had a personal vested interest in making our wedding the best. We finally felt like we had met someone we could entrust our wedding to, and it was such a weight off, let me tell you! Finally we started to relax (especially me; I was the nervous wreck through the search process!). There was nothing that Susan didn’t help us with. She not only gave us the tour and helped us choose a package that fit our needs, but recommended vendors and provided us with a timeline to make sure we’d get everything done on our end on time (told us when to send out the invitations and so on—good thing too because I just know I’d have messed a lot of this stuff up and that would have led to everything being really rushed at the end). Another thing about Susan was that she was always responsive and never, ever left us in suspense. There were dozens of times I can think of when we had sudden questions or concerns and weren’t sure what to do. A few times in a total panic I sent her emails in the middle of the night. She got back to me within 24 hours every time, and often a lot less than that. Many times she responded right away, and always with an answer, an idea, or a solution. Oftentimes she already had taken action or anticipated and resolved a problem before I even mentioned it, which really blew me away. I feel like I’ve spent the entirety of this review just talking about customer service. But it just was really what I think made this venue special and right for us. It’d be really remiss of me not to mention that everything else was great though. We had our ceremony outside, and it was just beautiful with this lovely runner and the gorgeous garden area. They have palm trees here, and they whisk you away and make you feel like you’re getting married in a tropical paradise. It is just a really amazing location. When we were taking the tour, we really loved it, and the way they decorated for our wedding, it made it even more lovely. The party was perfect too—great food, and we went with the house DJ, who turned out to be really awesome. The entertainment was something we were worried about, because there are so many notoriously bad wedding DJs and singers out there, and cheesy was something we wanted to avoid at all costs! We were reassured again and again leading up to the wedding, and we were very pleased with the DJ when it came time for our party! I think the whole thing about this place though really goes way beyond the food and the entertainment and the beauty of the scenery, and it all comes down to the wonderful people who are making it all happen. I can say with certainty that if not for the hard work of these amazing people, none of it would have been possible. Without Susan, our wedding just would not have been the same. Thank you for treating me and my husband our guests like we were all VIPs, and for always being so fast to answer my questions and take care of everything. I want the whole world to know what a great experience we had. If you have your wedding here, you are in good hands!

Review: We had our wedding here after attending a friend's wedding and loving it. Ours of course was even better! We loved everything about hers, and it gave us a good starting point when we were talking to the staff about what to do for ours. They customized everything, the food, the space, even the pacing, to fit our needs. It was perfect, and we had an incredible time on our special day!

Review: I was nervous about planning our event; planning has never been my strong suit. But Maria took care of everything--she made it all so easy and even enjoyable. And the big day itself was perfect--not a single hitch. The menu was wonderful, and even I had an amazing time. I was able to relax and enjoy myself knowing we were in good hands.

Review: Our event here was the best we could have imagined, and a lot of that was thanks to Maria. She was great at accommodating our last minute requests and satisfying all of our guests. The venue itself is beautiful, and you will not find a lovelier upscale environment for any event.
