    Wonderful service!

    The Union Bluff Meeting House was a perfect venue for us. They were incredibly flexible with us as we had to change our wedding date three times, and everything was perfect on the day of. The food was delicious, and our coordinator was happy to answer any questions that came up during the process, and was with us on the wedding day. We had our wedding off season in November and had the area pretty much to ourselves.

    Amazing staff and experience!!

    Had the most perfect wedding day at Union Bluff! Most of our guests were from out of town and everything was really convenient. Amy was our coordinator and did an absolutely amazing job!! She went above and beyond, even helped blow dry my dress after it rained! She was calm, and kept everything on schedule. She made the suggestion for our rehearsal dinner. She truly made wedding planning such a breeze and we were so fortunate to work with her. Everything was decorated perfectly. We had to move our ceremony inside due to a storm and the transition was seamless. Staff during the reception was super friendly, they set aside food for us and made sure we were eating. Overall highly recommend Union bluff!

    Most Amazing Venue & Staff

    My husband and I got married at the Union Bluff Meeting House on 10/23/2021 and it was absolutely the best day of our lives! Amy is amazing, we toured 4 venues total and she was a huge factor in our decision. The whole planning process was seamless and fun, from the tasting to our check ins we always felt we were in the best hands. Everyone warned me to prepare for little things to go wrong on our wedding day and literally nothing went wrong. We had both our ceremony and reception at the Union Bluff and EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT. Amy and the staff at the Union Bluff are incredible and know how to execute a wedding! Even in the year 2021 when the wedding season is busier than it's ever been! Our guests raved about the food, atmosphere and the location! We had crazy little requests like our "beer boy" instead of flower girl and Amy was there to make it happen! I could go on forever, but I cannot thank Amy enough and the Union Bluff for our dream wedding. It was truly more than we ever imagined!
