Thank you for taking a look at our testimonials.
If I could give them another star, I absolutely would. We worked with Mary, and from start to finish, she was an absolute rock star. We wanted a mountain feel without having to leave too far out of town, and Mount Vernon truly delivered. Don't let the drive up fool you: from their expansive decks, you have amazing views of the (prettier) side of the foothills and mountain ranges. Our guests are still raving about the food and cake, and so are we! We honestly weren't expecting much from their catering department when we signed the contract (wedding food usually seems mediocre), but everything was beyond what we expected and then some. The chefs didn't have it easy with 3 entrees, kids meals, and vendor meals + passed hor d'oeuvres, but they delivered. Mary worked seemlessly with our hired wedding coordinator (Quintessential Events) and accommodated any random requests we threw her way (unity cocktail) in a timely and professional manner. Longest review ever, but they really were THAT good. I'm a harsh critic at times, so that says a lot.

"We could not have asked for a more perfect venue. During our search for a ceremony and reception venue, we found Mt Vernon , and were able to visit quickly. Mary made us feel so at ease with her calm demeanor and knowledge. She was the ultimate professional through every step in the process. We booked the venue, and a few weeks later were invited to a food, cake, and bar tasting, which was beautifully done and well organized making our catering selection a cinch. As the date approached, Mary graciously and rapidly answered all our questions. We were so confident in the process. Mary and the staff worked well with our pastor on rehearsal day, letting our family get a glimpse of their professionalism. On wedding day, every single thing went perfectly. Mary and her staff were so helpful, offering to support in ways we hadn't even thought of. All of our guests raved about the food (we did the buffet), which isn't all that common with wedding food. Our cake tasted delicious, and two tiers were gluten free- all yummy. The deck overlooking the valley was gorgeous- we needed no decor outside as the mountains and wildlife took care of that for us. It also provided a pretty backdrop when the sun went down for guests wanting to take a break from dancing. Our guests were impressed, and we were over-the-moon with how everything turned out. We give Mary so much credit for executing our vision perfectly. Highly recommend for accommodating and professional staff, gorgeous views off the deck, simplicity in planning, and perfect execution of plans."
