I had my wedding here last night! It started off as a very gloomy rainy day and I was so upset but the second it started clearing up literally minutes before starting the coordinator Matt (who was fantastic) he came into the room and assured me I could still do my wedding outside! They sent people outside to dry chairs put out umbrellas the staff was incredible the food was great and it was a pleasure working with ALL of them extremely happy with my venue!!! Connie & Anne were also a pleasure to work with they made sure everything ran smoothly leading up to my wedding day!

"Independence Harbor is a wonderful place for a wedding! We had our reception their on Oct. 22, and it was amazing!!!! Starting with Anne & Connie, I can't say enough about how wonderful they are! They were always willing to answer any questions I had..they were responsive via email and phone! Maddie was our coordinator and she was great. Deb (I hope that's her name) was great! She was very attentive with us, our meals, drinks, etc. I thought that it would be jammed since we had 210 people but it was very roomy. The fireplace was a nice touch and friends and family loved taking pictures in front of it. It was wonderful! I can't tell you how many compliments I received on the venue and the food. I had a lot of critics, since my family is Italian and they are very particular with their food. Everyone was very pleased with their meals, which I was VERY HAPPY! It's horrible when you go to a wedding and the food stinks...well IH knows what they are doing! Everything was amazing!!!"

"The staff at IH was incredible! From planning, to the big day, it went off without a hitch. They always answered my emails quickly, and made planning easy. I could not have asked for a better wedding day. Matt was our coordinator, and he put me at ease. Not one thing went wrong that day. Martha was an absolute sweetheart, and was always checking to make sure we had everything we needed. I got many compliments on our choice of venue, and on the food. For the cocktail hour, we got the mac and cheese bar, and it was a hit! The dinner was delicious, and the ice cream sundaes they served with the cake was an excellent end to the day. We would recommend Independence Harbor to any couple looking for a gorgeous venue and a perfect, stress free day."

"The food is excellent. We still have guests commenting on it. Although the grounds, which are absolutely beautiful, held the initial appeal for us, the weather did not permit the outdoor ceremony for which we had hoped. However, we were not disappointed with the indoor ceremony by the fireplace. The interior design is classic and tasteful. Quality furniture, and traditional decor are complimented by the views of the grounds through the multi-pained windows lining both sides of the dining room. We would definitely recommend this facility. The quality of the food is well represented at the monthly brunch. We went with the "Private Wedding Brunch", as our wedding was on a Sunday morning. The appetizers were great, everything offered during the buffet was delicious."

"Overall, I would say Indepence Harbor was the perfect place to have our wedding. I have no regrets. The grounds and facility are beautiful. We had an outdoor ceremony that made for Amazing picturesque photos because of all the great flowers and landscaping. They can be kind of strict about details but I think that is to make sure everything goes smoothly. On the night of the wedding, the food was delicious and the staff was so professional and helpful. They really wanted to make sure everything was perfect for us. We got so many compliments about the venue. Multiple people told us they would have their wedding there if they could go back in time."

Wow! I was married at Independence Harbor on August 29, 2015. Planning the wedding was made easier by dealing with professionals. Connie and Anne were responsive and able to help address any concerns I had over the year of planning. It is obvious from the get go - they do this often and have a quality of delivering outstanding service that surpasses most. Leading up to the wedding they were helpful and honest in any questions I had. The grounds are some of the most breathtaking I have ever seen. The flowers and landscaping and work that goes into keeping this place so beautiful is something to be admired. I appreciate being able to visit IH several times and was able to see different ideas for the room, ceremony space and photo opportunities. While I truly believe the ceremony space is a ten - I also love the reception space! The room is different from a standard hotel ballroom as the dance floor is pushed forward and my guests LOVED it. iI felt like we were all on stage! The staff was great and Matty could not have been any more gracious and helpful. I swear working with him will spoil me for any event I plan in the future. He is calm, in control and pleasant which is exactly what you want on your wedding day. The food was amazing! The guests are still talking about it. I cannot thank Independence Harbor enough for their amazing work. The day was truly the most special day for us and we thank them for helping us have it. danielle&marshall
