The BEST Wedding Venue in the Charlotte & Surrounding Area – Victorian Villa is the most amazing wedding venue in the Charlotte area. I had the pleasure of giving my heart away there last Saturday, April 7th, 2012. From the moment I met Liz & Hutch until the last song was played I experienced customer service & authenticity at its finest!!! Liz & Hutch truly want to make your day unforgettable!!! Weddings are what they live for!!! I remember thinking I have no idea how to plan a wedding, what am I going to do?!! Then I met Liz & Hutch. If you are thinking of hiring a wedding planner DON’T! Reserve your date at the Victorian Villa & you get Liz!!! She handles every small detail & if you don’t know what you want she will help you choose with tasteful class & elegance! They are so professional & easy to work with. They were so prompt in answering questions & giving ideas when I didn’t know what to do! When I arrived at the Villa for my special day I was greeted by four staff members who were genuinely excited for me. They unloaded my car in a matter of seconds & ushered me to my grand layer were I prepared for the event of a lifetime. The room was stocked with goodies to make sure my belly stayed full & plenty of water to make sure I was hydrated. They did not miss one single detail! They constantly checked on me to make sure I had everything I needed. The food was AMAZING! I had so many compliments after the wedding on how great the food & cake was. So many of my guests were pleasantly surprised that they had fun at our wedding! I attribute this to the immaculate grounds, intimate setting & of course the amazing DJ. If you are looking for a unique & effortless place to get married… this is it. Sit back & relax while they handle all the details & insure your day goes perfectly.
Best Outdoor Wedding Venue in the Charlotte area! – My dream wedding took place on Oct. 1, 2011 at the Victorian Villa on Lake Wylie! It was a 6:00 pm wedding and the setting was absolutely beautiful. The reception area looked even better than I had pictured. But what really made the event seamless, was Liz, Todd and all of their staff! From the time we reserved the Villa (almost 1 year in advance), Liz and Todd were very good about answering all of our questions, giving great advice and allowing us to make visits to the Villa to ensure everything was as we planned. Liz was great when we came out for the rehearsal - she is a pro at what she does and I felt very comfortable after leaving the rehearsal that she had everything under control. On my wedding day, the place looked gorgeous and all of the ladies on staff were so accommodating. They brought us snacks and drinks as we were getting ready and kept checking on us to see if there was anything we needed. They really made me feel like a princess. Liz kept checking in with me throughout the evening to see if I needed anything and she also kept things on schedule, like the cake cutting, so that I didn't have to worry about those details. I recommend using the vendors they list on their website. We used Christine Robinson and her daughter on flute for the ceremony music , we used Winters Past florist and we used their DJ's, Curious George. They were awesome - the dance floor was packed the entire night! The food was very good - the chicken cordon bleu was excellent! We have heard nothing but glowing remarks about the wedding from our friends and family. If I had to do it all again, I wouldn't change a thing! Thank you Liz and Hutch for making our wedding dreams come true!!
Absolutely Stunning – My daughter was married at the Villa at sunset on 9.23.11 and the entire setting was priceless and beautiful. We had many out of state family and all that attended said they have never been to such a wonderful place.
It is the perfect venue for ANY outdoor event with a waterside gazebo, grand stairway, plenty of cozy seating with magnificent landscaping through out the property. Entire staff was very professional and caring....so caring that my daughter slightly ripped her dress moments before the ceremony and 2 staff members kept cool and mended the dress on site without the bride even knowing !!! They saved the day! The food was awesome and I recommend the chicken cordon blue and the beef tips. I truly appreciate Liz, Todd and entire Villa staff making such a special day for the bride, groom and entire guest. It will be remembered for many years to come.
Perfect! – Last weekend my daughter and my new son-in-law were wed at the Victorian Villa Bed and Breakfast Inn. The owners of the Villa and their staff were exceptional. They handled every detail with such professionalism, making the event stress free for all involved. We rented the Villa for the weekend and held the rehearsal on Friday and the wedding on Saturday. I highly recommend this venue if you are looking for a beautiful, elegant, and stress-free wedding!
Location: Near the airport making it easy for anyone traveling from out of town. It is also close to many large hotels which is wonderful for guests who need lodging. The Villa provides a shuttle to the parking area at the nearby school. They also arranged, per our request, for a shuttle from the hotel where our guests were staying to the Villa. Cool!
Grounds: Beautifully maintained. A storm had blown through the neighborhood the day before the wedding; tree debris was everywhere. The staff had the grounds in tip-top shape for our arrival. The staff is very friendly, polite, knowledgeable, and helpful. I felt a wonderful sense of calm knowing that the event was being handled by such capable hands. The stress of holding an event as big as a wedding was lifted from us, enabling us to fully enjoy the blessed event.
Food: We had barbecue fare for the rehearsal and a formal dinner for the reception. My daughter and son-in-law chose the Prime Rib and the Chicken Marsala. Excellent! Since we stayed at the Villa for the weekend, we also had breakfasts there as well and they were delicious! Chef Edie and the kitchen staff prepare the food on site and it is served to perfection, with tasteful presentations. We had guests with special dietary needs (vegetarians/gluten free) and the Villa was able to accommodate us! Thanks!
Accommodations: Spacious and tastefully decorated with period pieces. The bride and bridesmaids prepared for the wedding in the Lincoln Suite. There was ample room for the ladies to dress, do their makeup and hair for the wedding. The men prepared for the wedding in the Juliet Suite, which is large and accommodated their needs too!
Proprietors: Liz and Todd, are wonderful. Todd worked with us during the planning phase and Liz handled all of the logistics upon our arrival. Liz is absolutely amazing, with such grace and poise. She handled the role of wedding director with such professionalism; she is a natural at what she does! We brought along our wedding items, such as favors, programs, etc. It was such fun going through all of our wedding props with her and explaining what we hoped to accomplish with everything. Liz was as excited as we were going through everything and ensuring that our vision would be accomplished. Liz, Todd and the staff worked together on Saturday and prepared the Villa for the special day. They made everything that we had hoped for come to life! It was even better than we had expected! Liz, as director, used a wireless microphone system and kept the event on track. Any need we had was met by the staff. They are perfect at what they do. I have nothing but praise for all: Ebony, Shannon, Michael, Edie, Daphne, Alicia, and everyone else. You made my daughter, son-in-law, my husband and me so very happy!
Setting: The water features create a relaxing, cool and calm setting. We enjoyed the fountains,the babbling brook, the bridge over the pool, and the lake view. The grand staircase was gorgeous and enabled a grand entrance for my daughter to enter the ceremony. The gazebo facing the lake is the perfect ceremony location. The Villa, the grounds, the lake view and the wonderful landscaping made for wonderful photo opportunities
When planning an outdoor wedding, there is always the risk that rain may occur. Well, it rained. The rain held off long enough for the ceremony and photos, but then let loose. Kudos to the Villa again! The staff handled relocating the tables and guests seamlessly. It was still awesome!
Beautiful Setting for Weddings – I recently had the pleasure to attend the wedding of a good friend at this venue and was truly impressed by the setting. The location is perfect, being on a quiet slice of the lake, and the property is lovely. The wedding I attended seated around 50 people, who sat comfortably throughout. The food and service was excellent, and the family who owns the property were as excited to have us as we were to be there. I can certainly recommend Victorian Villa for weddings and get away weekends! Two thumbs up!
Not one single complaint! – As the mother of the bride, I feel the need to express my thanks to the staff of the Inn. Liz was like a mind reader. She was Johnny on the spot, our perssonal wedding organizer. Liz took the worry right out of us and made us feel calm and secure. The other helpers were all smiles and very polite. The Inn has great photo opportunities, as the grounds are beautiful. The food and cake were excellent. We were able to bring our own alcohol (saves $!) for which they had a Tiki bar. The dance area and patios were festive. It couldn't of been any better.
Thank you, Liz, Todd and the staff.
Very happy wedding guests! – My boyfriend was a groomsman in a wedding this past Saturday at the B&B. From the rehearsal to the wedding, it was all very well conducted and planned. I was very impressed with the staff and how willing they were to help with anything we needed. Even as a few of us were super early since we were dates of the wedding party, they catered to us and were willing to help us with everything and every question we had. It was a beautiful wedding and I am so happy I was able to be a guest there. Thank you!!
Great hotel BUT.. – It's a great hotel but if any of you are looking to save some $$ then book it at goo.gl/FPxYD They have some of the best hotel deals on the web!
Amazing Weddings! – My husband and I just had our wedding at the Villa. It was supposed to be an outdoor wedding, but it rained all day. The staff was amazing! They pulled it all together inside instantly and even though our sequence of events was now ruined due to the rain, they did a fantastic job. Everyone was so sweet and helpful. They wanted to make sure that our wedding day was everything we hoped it would be. And it was! Even if it hadn't of rained, I know they would have been great also. And the food was out of this world!
They had just made renovations, it was beautiful with all the string lights and the lighted pool. The composite decking was particularly wonderful, because it doesn't snag the bottom of your dress. Little touches like this make this place wonderful!
They have great package deals for weddings which include the dj, security, food, accommodations, decorations, table settings, and the cake (which is so delicious it's a sin). It is definitely worth checking out!
Wretched and offensive – The Victorian Villa is awful, creepy, the service is bad and two of our rooms were burglarized while the wedding was going on outside. We heard rumors of irritated neighbors and past issues within hours of arriving. For starters: A police officer arrives in the late afternoon and stares over your wedding because of prior disturbances and complaints from the neighbors. Not a big problem but we were never informed he would be there. He should have been inside catching the person who stole more than $600, an mp3 player, camera and keys from the two separate rooms the items were in. It had to have been an inside job, but, innocent until proven guilty. With the exception of one cordial employ, the employees were disgruntled from the moment I met them. At our morning breakfast, I was constantly asked how much longer we were going to be there because she does not get paid overtime. I think a more appropriate approach would've been to talk to her boss. They also ran out of some of the food items during the wedding. I think they were under-staffed and that's management's fault. It seems as though an incompetent, outlaw couple has come across money, purchased a two family Victorian home, kept one side for a dwelling, threw the word "Villa" into the mix and lured victims in with a website. Call the local police department for verification of my story. My blessings to anyone who takes a chance with this place. Their muscle car is going to wake you up early in the morning.
