Please don't Go Here and Don't have your wedding here!.
The comment by the owner in regards to Colleen M. is correct. They do have a wedding coordinator. So the owner is lying. Maybe not now but they did. I am a well respected DJ in the industry and have been for 13 years. I have 3 other DJ's that have been to this venue and all 3 have come back with the same comments about how horrible the owners are to work with and how they are soooo rude. I don't understand where all these nice comments on google and other review sites come from?
The venue owners and managers are extremely rude, unyielding and very unprofessional. They are quick to blame others for any mistakes and they never seem to be wrong. In the wedding industry the owners are known to be arrogant and rude to vendors. DJ's especially despise working this venue due to the fact that they are rude and treat DJ's as being unimportant. One note: They are very, very stringent about their volume levels of music.
My DJ's only used 2 Mackie SRM 450 speakers for each wedding. NO BASS speakers were used for any weddings at this venue since they called our office and told us the DJ wouldn't be allowed to set up if a BASS speaker was present. NO LIE....The owner would stand within 5 feet of the speakers with a DB meter and say it was too loud. And kept telling the DJ to turn down the music. He would do this every 30 minutes. Really annoying and literally obsessed. I guess; guests were trying to dance and couldn't because the music wasn't loud enough. One of the weddings the bride and groom got really mad at the owners and he just told them too bad.
THIS HAPPENED AT 3 DIFFERENT WEDDINGS!!! The same darn comment from 3 of my DJ's. Amazing; that this venue can be such a respected wedding venue. It truly disgraces me as a professional in this industry that this venue can ruin a couples wedding and freely take the couples money without any second thought. One of my DJ's said the string quartet at the ceremony was louder then his music for dancing was. It seems they would rather have a string quartet for the dancing portion of the evening.
Please really think twice about this venue. There are plenty of other beautiful venues and owners that are willing to be flexible and not ruin a couples wedding. It's well advised that your hard earned money be spent somewhere else.
The venue owners really need to "get off their high horse". They need to get back to the idea that they are in business for the customers and not for their own selfish and high esteem ways. Be humble that customers come to you instead of being the opposite. Also, a fair warning is that they are known and rumored to be indifferent to people of color.
Heaven on earth.
I loved this place. While only an hour from Portland it was so worth the trip. amazing wines, great overnight rooms, breathtaking views, & a very friendly owner, Nicolet.
I will be back with friends!
The BEST view in Oregon!. Youngberg hill is a place that you really have to see in your lifetime. When you come over the last hill from their mile long paved (thank God) driveway the view of the Inn takes your breath away. Beautiful iron gate with rolling vineyards all the way up. The only view better was at the top of the hill where we knew we were some ware truly special. We were greeted by the Innkeeper, Becky, with a warm welcome and a glass of estate Pinot Noir wine, which was fabulous. A very nice full breakfast was served with local charm and on custom wine bottle glass plates. At breakfast the owner, Nicolette, welcomed us and took great care in making sure our wine touring was all set up. It was clear she LOVED what she she does and her passion showed through beautifully. We took walks around the property and the farm dog joined us each time and was very enjoyable. It?s within 20 minutes of at least 100 wineries. Our 3 day trip was too short but we will be back for both the location and Youngberg Hill's estate wines.
