I can't say enough good things about Brette, Henry, and their staff at the Maridor. Our wedding went off without a hitch. I am a very dominant person, one who needs to be in control of things so that ... Read more that I can know they are being done just right so my wedding day was a bit scary to me. I was able to basically let go and let Brette, she knows how things flow best, she knows where you need to be when, I mean, she was amazing. Brette can serve as a day of coordinator and she did a fabulous job. The Maridor is absolutely visually stunning while being very comfortable and functional. Can't say enough about the staff, the food, the bar, and the decor, perfect 10!

Highly recommend!!

My husband and I got married at The Maridor on June 8, 2019. We absolutely loved the experience. Brenda and her team went above and beyond our expectations with everything from the planning process to ... Read more decorations to vendor organization to last time rain contingency plans. Brenda always answered questions in a very timely manner and did everything to insure our wedding was everything we've ever dreamed of! The food was absolutely delicious and many guests pulled us aside to compliment the food. My 9 bridesmaids and I stayed the night at The Maridor and everything was perfect! We were provided linens, bath towels, a complimentary breakfast in the morning with coffee, fruits, pastries, and yogurt. Everything was spectacular! We loved everything about our experience and we would HIGHLY recommend The Maridor!

I found the Maridor when my original wedding venue had to cancel due to a massive flood- the week before Christmas! I panicked that I had to scramble to find somewhere else to have our wedding, and ... Read more felt like giving up & eloping. Then I found the Maridor, and everything was saved. First of all, the home is EQUISITE- it’s beautifully-maintained, and the grounds are simply gorgeous. Rita and David (the owners), take such amazing care of the home and the people who choose to have their wedding there. Brenda & Jen, the wedding coordinators, are true professionals who cater to every need and dream of the bride and groom. Brenda spent months helping me re-work my wedding dream, and made it all a reality for us on our big day (April 13th!). Ashley, the incredible chef, created delicious dishes that the guests are STILL talking about. Melissa and the other staff set up the garden for our ceremony, and the ballroom for our reception. They took my table seating plans and worked it all out EXACTLY how we wanted. The bartender was also FABULOUS- he was quite a hit with the guests! When I look back on our wedding day, I have nothing but incredible memories and things to say about The Maridor and it’s WONDERFUL crew. Brides, this place is a dream come true. Don’t think twice about booking your special day here!!
