Sarah – The Knot – 11/11/2016

This was the first venue my husband and I visited and we fell in love immediately. HCC fit our vision for the wedding perfectly: intimate, charming, elegant and rustic. We worked with Bridget who was responsive to all of our e-mails and was extremely helpful the day of the wedding. Everything ran smoothly the day of and the space and decor looked beautiful. Our guests were raving about the food and loved having the option to dance inside or relax outside by the fire pits. We had 150 guests (the max) and we felt there was enough space for everyone to be comfortable and enjoy themselves.

Over all my husband and I highly recommend the Highlands Country Club, you won’t be disappointed!

My Husband and I got married at the Highlands Country Club on August 19th, 2016. We could have not asked for a more perfect day! Everything and everyone went above and beyond to make our day unforgettable. My bridesmaids kept telling me while we were getting ready that I was so calm for a bride. This was because of Bridget and her staff at Highlands Country Club. They made me feel so comfortable and made sure everything went smoothly. I just felt like there was nothing for me to worry about and just enjoyed my day.

During the planning process Bridget was very prompt with any questions I had and she and the chef were very accommodating to the requests we had. My husband is Serbian and we really wanted to incorporate some food from Serbia into the wedding. We were able to bring in some cheese and spreads from the region and Bridget and staff did such a great job presenting these items during cocktail hour.
On the wedding day we started in bridal suite which was just great. My bridal party and I were served a nice spa lunch and champagne and it just allowed us to really enjoy the getting ready part and feel relaxed.

The wedding and reception was just perfect! Our guests had nothing, but great things to say about the evening. They raved about the venue, the staff and the food. Everything was just perfect, I go on forever. I highly recommend the Highlands Country Club and wish I could relive our wedding again!

This place MADE our wedding! My husband and I worked closely with the lovely Danielle from day one. She made the whole process of booking, planning, and executing our vision seem like a walk in the park. The venue itself is breathtaking, with greenery all around, a huge chandelier, and the perfect amount of old-world charm. Add in the delicious food, the fabulous staff, and the open bar, and the perfect wedding is a cinch. Our guests were enchanted by the place, they complimented the staff several times, and their plates were practically licked clean. The bridal suite is extremely helpful for getting ready and for touch-ups during the party as well. Danielle and her staff know how to throw a wedding, but the Highlands is by no means a wedding factory. They put such care into the details and personalizing of a couple’s day that each wedding is unique. My husband and I will look so fondly on the memories of April 9th, 2016, all thanks to the Highlands Country Club, Danielle, and the wonderful staff.

Beth – WeddingWire – 12/12/2015

Loved, the Highlands Country Club! In the beginning of our wedding venue search a few things were really important to us- we did not want a typical wedding factory. It was really important that the venue we choose did not hold multiple parties/weddings per day. We also did not want a venue with ugly carpet…The second most important thing for us was the FOOD. We wanted GOOD food and BOOZE. Not quantity (over the top cocktail hour that makes you dizzy) but quality (something that melted in your mouth)…The food here is farm to table. They also use seasonal veggies. The food was amazing- we had the slow cooked ribs in a truffle oil sauce (it melted in your mouth)! The salmon was also amazing. The booze was flowing and NOT watered down. The venue is BEAUTIFUL and intimate. It is a perfect setting for a wedding of 100-120 guests. It is all hardwood floors with two grand fireplaces (that WORK!)and a grand chandelier. My favorite part of the venue is that you really DO NOT need additional light
The Planning:At first we had one wedding planner- but she left and we then had Bridget as our planner. Bridget was great- she answered all of my emails (a lot of them), she was super flexible and really attentive! The best part is this venue and Bridget’s flexibility. Bridget worked with me and my vendors and was extremely flexible about working with my vendors and accommodating all of my ideas. She even helped me go back and forth on some tough decisions and helped guide me without pressuring me ever. She kept us really organized and day of she took control of the party and made sure everything went as planned and perfect. Also, with bridget was a bridal assistant that was amazing and SOOO helpful. It was so great to be able to trust someone to manage everything and it was perfect. Read More.

Danielle – WeddingWire – 10/30/2015

If you are considering the Highlands, do yourself a favor and look no further. I really struggled to find a wedding venue for our fall wedding. I had an idea of what I wanted, I knew I did not want a wedding hall but was not familiar with the area, which left a lot of choices. The Highlands was the last of seven venues we looked at and upon arrival I knew it was the perfect place for us to get married. We got married on 10/30/15 on the most beautiful fall day and it was truly perfect and all that we wanted. You have to see the venue itself, photos don’t do it justice, but you could not bring in decor at all and still have a beautiful wedding there. Every detail of the venue is beautiful. The staff is amazing, Bridget and her team were always there for me. I emailed her ALL the time and she always got back to me and there to help. The day of, the staff was just incredible and there for whatever you needed and there to guide you through everything. And the food!!! The food is incredible, all of my guests were complimenting it and saying that it was the best wedding food they had ever had. People were raving about it the next day at our farewell brunch. My guests also raved about the wait and bar staff, and just said how wonderful they were. I went for a rustic fall theme, but the room and space allows you to really do whatever theme you want and it will work. It is just a beautiful place with wonderful people running it who will help make your day perfect. I know everyone says their wedding was the best, but mine really was and I am so happy I chose to have it at the Highlands. I can’t say enough good things here to even do it justice. Read More.

My husband and I were married at Highlands in April 2015. We worked with Danielle who was absolutely wonderful and completely organized throughout the entire process. We loved the historic, warm and cozy feel of the space as soon as we walked in. Although it can hold more, we had a small wedding of about 70 and were very comfortable. We had a lovely ceremony and cocktail hour outdoors followed by dinner and dancing inside the main room. We had warm weather though and guests were able to flow inside and outside throughout the evening as they wished. The food was incredible and far exceeded the typical bland and forgettable “wedding food” served at most venues (we highly recommend the short ribs!). We really can’t thank Danielle and the lovely staff at Highlands enough. The day was exactly what we wanted and we’re still talking about it!  Read More.

We were very happy with our venue, Highlands Country Club, and highly recommend them. I wanted a small, elegant, relaxed and fun wedding with great food and Highlands Country Club was excellent. From meeting with our coordinator (Danielle) to planning to the actual event, my husband and I greatly appreciated the expert handling of our wedding. It was reassuring to have such professional, warm, patient and friendly support during our big day, which went smoothly thanks in no small part to Danielle and her team. The grounds were gorgeous, fresh and just what I had in mind for an outdoor ceremony. The food was excellent and even better than I expected. And best of all for this low-maintenance bride, Highlands handled things so well that I didn’t have to go crazy with wedding planning. Read More.
