Testimonials

Our wedding would never have come together if it weren't for The Orchards Hotel and the absolutely incredible Janell. She went out of her way to understand the type of wedding we wanted, and then worked with us to make it happen. She handled all the rentals, finding us great deals along the way. On the day of the wedding, she couldn't have been better. Responsive, available by all means -- and when we forgot to check in, we could always rely on her to give us a call or shoot us text to keep everything on track. 

Our food was to die for -- Chef used all local ingredients, and worked with us to adjust the menu up until the last minute to ensure we had the best produce and best food possible. Weeks later, I'm still getting emails from friends raving about the smoked salmon and all else. We had an Asian fusion menu, and Chef was up for the task. Our cocktail hour dim sum was awesome! They thought through so many details -- from including a hoi sin glaze on our ham, to including star fruit and dragon fruit for our breakfast the next day. It's really these little touches that puts these guys above other vendors we've dealt with. Everything they said they could do, they did—and more. 

Wait staff was friendly, courteous, smart and on top of everything. 

Our stay at the hotel was also flawless. They made us feel at home, pampered—like the king and queen you want to be on your wedding day. 

Truly, we owe so much of the success of our wedding to The Orchards—including the fact that the whole event ran on time! We can't say enough positive things. If you have the chance, we highly recommend working with them.

This is one of the most amazing spots to have your wedding. Whether it's outside in the warm weather in the courtyard surrounded by flowers and a pond, or inside warm and toasty on cold days snuggled with the warmth of the fireplaces. The Orchards is so welcoming and warm, the food is out of this world and the employees are there for whatever you need. They will make sure that this day(s) goes my as smooth as possible. 

Our Recpetion was held at the Orchards Hotel on a cold wintery day. The food was buffet style and catered by the chef. Our guests could not get over how delicious the food was and how the meat melted in your mouth..( Great Job Chef, Thanks again!)The ball room was set up so niceley with the decor that I had picked out, and given to the wedding planners to display. Our theme was snowflakes/pinecones, I could not beleive how well they had displayed all of our decor and centerpeices. 

Janell, I want to Thank you so much for making "Our Wedding" such an amazing and wounderful time. We appreciate all the time and hard work you put into it! It was truley a time to remember. 

Later in the evening we had visited the bar downstairs with some friends and family. We had some great drinks from an amazing bartender! We also decided to get a bite to eat. The cheese plate is our favorite! Different cheeses plated with an assortment of crackers and spreads...Yummm.

We had the perfect wedding weekend and the hotel was one of the biggest parts of that. There is not a single thing we would change about our wedding. Every single staff member was wonderful to work with and completely attentive to making our wedding weekend the best possible. Our guests that stayed at the hotel all raved about the wonderful service and food. Even the guests that didn't stay there all praised the venue. I can't say enough about how wonderful everything was.
