Wedding Testimonials

Hear what our happy couples are saying!

Our daughter, Sarah, and her husband, Cole, just had the wedding of their dreams with the reception at Fox Hill. Everything was perfect! The owner was very helpful and the hall was beautifully decorated. Julie is so easy to work with! Our guests, including one 5-star chef, raved about the food catered by Blue Heron. All agreed that it was the best banquet food ever. Featuring items such as pecan chicken, brown rice salad, scrumptious potatoes au gratin, roasted vegetables, beef brisket and a lovely selection of fresh breads, the buffet was reasonably priced and with a touch of gourmet. We cannot say enough about Fox Hill and Blue Heron. We hope to be invited to more weddings there to enjoy the fun, festivities and food.

Brian & Juile, we can’t thank you enough for making our wedding wonderful. The minute I walked in your beautiful facility, I fell in love. I wanted to have my wedding there. Then meeting Juile topped it all. She is such a kind hearted, caring, helpful individual. We had so many compliments on how beautiful the grounds are and how delicious the food was. Again, thank you for a wonderful being to our new life.

I could not have chosen a more outstanding venue for the wedding. Julie the owner, and her assistant Andrea were so amazing through everything. Very helpful, and flexible! My rehearsal dinner guest list got bumped up by 25 and wouldn’t fit everyone where I had planned, Andrea made a few calls and had us a place to go within 15 minutes…. SUCH AMAZING customer service! And it is an absolutely stunning area to boot!! My pictures so far have turned out absolutely beautiful, and I had so many compliments on the food!! Everyone was saying it was the best they have ever had at a wedding!! ABSOLUTELY outstanding!!!! If you choose this site you will not be disappointed. The ownership and management of this venue turned my special day into the absolute best day of my life.

Mr. & Mrs. Pullano, June 2015


Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day more perfect than we imagined! Working with you was an absolute pleasure. You were always so helpful and quick to respond to us! Planning a wedding from across the country is no easy task, but you made the whole process so much easier for us. All of your recommendations, and your staff were wonderful. The food, oh my, the food! It was sensational! We still have people telling us it was the best wedding food they have ever had and I couldn’t agree more. Our entire experience with you, and with Fox Hill and the Blue Heron Cafe went above and beyond our expectations and we are genuinely grateful for everything. The whole day was perfect and absolutely gorgeous.

Thanks so much for all your help in making our wedding such a success! Everyone was complimenting Fox Hill, the beautiful landscaping and wonderful scenery for pictures, and the Blue Heron too with the “amazing” food! Just wonderful! Thank you for such a beautiful start to our marriage.

The Kibbe’s – July 2014


The food provided by Blue Heron was beyond expectations! Our guests were very pleased with the quality, taste, and variety. The food options we had to choose from were plentiful and affordable.
The owner did everything in her power to make our day as perfect and as special as she could. She was very flexible, and very open to our ideas. The staff was very professional and helped our day go as smoothly as possible. Throughout the entire day, she had a designated staff member, along with herself, available and ready in case something went wrong. She was one of the best event coordinators we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with and we definitely recommend Fox Hill Event Center to anyone.

We had an absolutely fabulous time at our wedding here! We have heard nothing but compliments since our special day. Planning this wedding 2,000 miles away, I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect, but this “destination wedding” turned out perfectly and we couldn’t have done it without you, Julie and Brian! You really went the extra mile and we appreciate everything. Thank you again!

Joe and Leslie Voiles – July 2012


I haven’t even been married a week and I have received an abundance of phone calls of nothing but great things to say about our wedding and reception at Fox Hill. I have been asked, if you could change anything about the day what would you change? Absolutely NOTHING! It was everything I have ever wanted for my wedding day and Gary and I couldn’t be more happy with everything. The food was amazing, the venue looked so beautiful and was a great setup, and everything went so perfect it’s almost too good to be true. Julie was a huge help throughout the planning process and went over and above for us. Our whole experience was something we will never forget. Thank you so much Julie and Brian (Blue Heron Cafe), for giving us the wedding of our dreams.
