Positives: beautiful setting, great DJ food good but main entrée (salmon and filet were not hot when served),salad was placed at tables over 1 hour before meal, appetizers served hot but did seem frozen (not freshly made) Food servers for meal were friendly and helpful. Photographers and photo booth great.















Negatives: multiple problems:







1. Staff rude: literally yelled at bride when 20 guests did not have seats, Told bride it was her fault and announced to guests in reception area the bride was to blame for lack of seating. Took over 1 hour to resolve by setting up more tables while guests stood around and watched. The bar area was closed during this time. The groom had to step in and requested person responsible for tables be removed from our venue, which they did. They were given a list of guests and table arrangements but did not check to see if it corresponded with the arrangement they set up. The groom's parent-table was placed in a corner, near the bar and away from the center of the rooms they had to go to dance floor area to view first dance, best man and maid of honor speeches







2. had to walk between buildings in rain without supply of umbrellas.







3. Arrangements were made for no tip jars. Bartenders set up tip jars during the cocktail hour and responded rudely to request to remove them by saying "Well, we'll just have to talk to the owner first". The tip jars were finally removed nut were set up again during the reception at the second bar. Bartenders also refused to give guest a glass of water to take her medication while the bar was closed.







4. Hot water for tea was served in containers that smelled and tasted like coffee















General comments: Eventually everything worked out and guests had a good time. I had 2 other children married in the last 3 years and hosted 3 other large events (100 to 200 guests) at other venues. There are a lot of extra charges that can add-up. The above price did not include alcohol. There can be an extra charge if items if guests show up too early, if items are not delivered within a specific timeframe (before 5pm) mid-week. The customer service skills and responses by at Kings Mill was by far the worst. Tough to get over when the bride is crying before entering the reception and no one from the staff apologized.

AMAZING!
spent 2 hours with us, letting us question her about all sorts of things before we hired her. My mom even spent an hour on the phone with her, and asked for a contract and quote... all before we spent a dollar.
For our wedding
did the following:
- Rehearsal
- Met with vendors with us prior to the wedding
- Wedding Day
- Had multiple meetings with us
- Created timelines for us
- Negotiated with a difficult vendor and saved us $500!
- Handled our final payments to vendors
- Created our wedding website (She does websites too!)

This was an absolute FIASCO!! I reserved the front room of this facility 5 months prior to my wedding. They were constructing a new building in the back but I was told it would not affect the room I was reserving. On the afternoon before my wedding, my wedding planner arrived to start decorating and found several walls newly textured but not painted, ceiling tiles missing, a new wall put up (we had a floor plan in place so it had to be changed at the last minute), and the bathrooms gutted. My wedding planner was treated very badly by
Brewster Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
in the office who wasn't truthful with her about conversations she and I had had. We were able to get things cleaned up in time for the wedding but had to rent A LOT more draperies to cover up unsightly areas. All seemed right at the wedding until the sewer backed up in the kitchen with sewage coming out of the floor drain. Needless to say the place flooded. This happened 20 days ago and we have yet to hear from these people. Not an apology or an explanation to me about the construction. I am VERY disappointed in them.

Luciens and the entire Luciens staff for my daughters wedding on october 5, 2013 surpassed every expectaion I had. My daughter also expressed the same sentiment and stated that Luciens brought her vision of her wedding to life in a spectacular way. So many of our guests have called, emailed and texted me to say that my daughters wedding was the very best wedding reception they ever went to.
To be perfectly truthful, the "COST" for our 175 person wedding reception at
Brewster Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
is not cheap. With tax & tip on a Saturday Night reception (6pm to 11 pm) on the #1 wedding date of the year (October 5th) came to $139 per person. We had to pay the minimum of 175 people whether we had 175 people attending or not. But that is no different than any other reception hall and I can easily accept that this policy is the norm anywhere you go.
The room was stunning. There are 3 reception rooms at Luciens.... 2 downstairs and 1 upstairs. We were in the largest room downstairs and to the right as you enter the foyer. The cocktail hour all the guests are in the front part of the room, but there is a wooden wall that seperates the main
Brewster Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
room from the cocktail room. Guests do not see the
Brewster Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
room while the cocktail hour is going on. The food at the cocktail hour just blew everyone away. The bounty was everywhere. And oh so good! Too much food i heard people say. There was 4 stations where Luciens staff served behind a table, there was a HUGE cold table, and then butlered hors'derves. Then when the cocktail hour was done, and the announcement was made to prepare to enter the
Brewster Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
room.....the wooden partion slowly
Brewster Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
up into the ceiling, revealing the massive
Brewster Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
room and tables. OOO's and AHHH's went out from the guests! It was awesome. That';s when i realized that $139 per person was so well worth it!!! I felt so PROUD to be the Father of the Bride!!
Dinner was magnificent. Most people could not finish becaus ethey stuffed themselves on the cocktail hour. And then the big surprise..... the maitre'dei came around to every table with a large tray of portions of the 3 entrees that was served asking my guests if they wanted seconds or if they wanted to try the other dinners!!!! Trust me, very few people went for seconds or tried other entrees. Some of my family did. They had the prime rib for dinner but couldn't resist trying the Salmon too!.
This particular room came with a huge bonus, too., It has a double door which opens up onto a magnificent outside area where there were tables & chairs, colored waterfalls, beautiful flowered & lighted walkways, and wonderful night air! It was like our private outside paradise.
I would recommend spending the money for

for your wedding or other affair.

I cannot say enough good things about Euphoria. From beginning to end my experience was wonderful. I found this facility on a whim searching around for a reception facilities downtown. I did not want a typical traditional formal wedding. I wanted fun, unique, and gorgeous environment for my cocktail reception and this was perfect. I was nervous about the price but I felt like they worked with me to help me stay on budget. It was a unusually warm March day and they even opened up the balcony for us and had heating lamps out there for guest that wanted to enjoy the outside. The facility is so unique and has gorgeous painting everywhere so I felt that it needed very minimal decorating which helped in other parts of my budget.
By far my favorite part was the food and beverages. I felt our bar package was the most bang for the buck I got in my entire wedding. We did what they call the
Brewster Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
and grain package which included all draft
Brewster Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
and standard bottles like

Light,
Brewster Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
, Coors, etc. Then the wine they let me taste during our tasting and pick out of a couple different options which were my favorite. It also included champage, so I felt like my guest had plenty of options for free, and also could pay for their own liquor. Every guest raved about being able to drink local
Brewster Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
and the excellent wine options they had available.
I was very nervous that my party of 100 guest would be crowded but once we had everyone there it was perfect. They was enough seating for about half of the guest and kept people mingling the whole time without making anyone uncomfortable. I was also nervous if people would get enough to eat but between the light appatizers that were passed, a couple stationary cheese and cocktail shrimp areas, and the cupcakes it seemed to be plenty! Ms.
Brewster Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
who was the event planner even made up a plate for my husband and I as we were so busy talking to guest and doing all the standard wedding things.
The whole process with Euphoria was so stress free. What decorations I did have we dropped off the day before and the staff placed them on the tables and set everything up just as we had requested. The one part that did disappoint me somewhat was that I had originally began working with the planner on staff there who ended up getting a new position and leaving Euphoria. However, Ms.

(the owner) took over and helped me through everything, even while being pregnant and on a maternity leave. Trust me when I say this is the

treasure of Indianapolis party locations! You'll thank me when you see it.

The food is great, and the view is amazing. They aren't cheap, but you get what you pay for. The package also comes with two wedding planners. They are all very nice. You need to be a member of the country club to have a wedding there. We had dinner a couple of times there, and it is phenomenal.

had staff to set up the area in the reception area with seating for our wedding ceremony. She also gave us use of a second room with beautiful detail to take our family pictures. Use of all tables and chairs are included.

was there during the entire event to ensure that everything went as planned. After the wedding planner decorated the ballroom it looked magical. Everyone who came in was just awed by the house, the setting, how smoothly everything went.

herself is a delightful woman and she knows her venue well. She gave us excellent advice on where to place the bar, the food, the DJ, the guest book, even the gift table. The restrooms are spotless and well maintained all throughout the event. At the end of the reception, her son even carried my dress to the car.
Because this is a historic home, everything must be taken care of in a certain way and it is best to follow
Brewster Reception Halls Provider Name Locked
's recommendations. She does not want you to have any problems so when she recommends someone, say the Bartender, she knows that they will clean up their space before they leave, there will be no damage and you will have someone truly professional. While she doesn't make many recommendations per

, she will tell you who she or her brides have used successfully. We had a real let down from our baker and she took all the cards they had left her, ripped them in half and threw them out. She wouldn't want anyone else to experience the same disappointment.
