We had our wedding (6/25/16) at the Dan'l Webster Inn, and everything -- from check in to rehearsal dinner to the ceremony and reception to the bridal suite, garden, and food -- exceeded our expectations.
The wedding coordinators are very quick and so helpful. We booked a year in advance, and had lots of questions about how everything worked and what we needed to do, all of which were answered in detail and very promptly -- including long, hypothetical treatises on different alcohol sales possibilities. As the date got closer, we went in for a meeting, during which I'm sure we were asking really picky questions. But both Kate and Amy were so gracious and patient, and sat with us for a solid half hour, even going to get the chair sashes we picked so we could see them in person to make sure the color was right. They accommodated food allergies and last-minute seating and guest changes absolutely seamlessly.
The day of, Kate directed everything so flawlessly. We kept right on time, I was never anxious about what I needed to do, but I also never felt like she was hovering. She managed to keep us on schedule through pictures, the meal, greeting our guests, all that stuff. And she was so upbeat and fun to work with.
The food was amazing. We got the chicken oscar and swordfish for our entrees and our guests couldn't stop talking about how good everything was. Even the kids meals got rave reviews. They were even willing to send a meal upstairs to a hotel room where my brother's mother-in-law was watching his baby daughter -- that's definitely above and beyond, considering she wasn't even a guest at the wedding.
The conservatory where we had our reception was gorgeous -- all glass and looking out onto the garden. Our sweetheart table was in front of a koi pond with a waterfall! And the garden, where we had our ceremony, is so bright and beautiful, with a huge tree we got married under. The space barely needs any decoration because of the fantastic view, the hanging plants, and the cute rows of lights hanging from the ceiling. Chair sashes and fairly cheap and simple flowers more than did the trick.
The inn itself is lovely, and all the staff is so friendly. Even walking down a hallway carrying something, somebody offers to grab it for you. When you call for room service it comes right away. Our room was the bridal suite and it was beautiful -- nice porch, a whirlpool tub, lots of space, comfortable bed. And every time we turned around, somebody was leaving chocolates and rose petals in our room.
When we left, we were already just blown away by everything. But when we got home and went through our wedding gifts, we found something from the Inn -- I won't wreck the surprise -- and we were so touched! I've never seen that before.
Whether you're coming here to eat, to sleep, or to get married, you won't be disappointed. Our wedding was perfect. I was nervous about spending so much money on one single night, but it was completely worth it. We'll remember it forever. We're so grateful. ~ Evan
