Bride & Groom

January 23, 2013

My wedding day here was an absolute dream. I cannot stress enough how beautiful this place is. Everything from the food, to the flowers, to the rooms that we stayed in was nothing short of perfect. Mike and his staff handled everything and we didn't stress over a single thing. If I did it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing. It was the most beautiful day of our lives, and I cannot thank the staff at The Retreat enough!!!

The Retreat is a beautiful venue for weddings or any other special event you may have in mind. Mike Whiddon, Jim Marshall and their staff are awesome. They went above and beyond to make sure we had what we needed or requested for our daughters wedding and our guests. We were very pleased with everything.

My daughter just had her wedding here and I can not stop smiling! Mike Whiddon and the whole staff are amazing and professional. They will cater to every need for the whole time you are there. Not just the wedding day. It's so nice to stay on grounds where the wedding is. I was able to sit back and not miss a minute of this special time. Best decision ever to rent this venue with the best support team around. I would give them 10 stars if I could!
