Our wedding was the most wonderful day. It lived up to all of our expectations. All of our guests were from out of town and they all LOVED Lexington. They thought it was so beautiful and natural. From the rolling hills to the horse farms and white fencing, it truly is an amazing play to have your wedding!
When I interviewed Tony, he was great. He was super energetic and relieved a lot of my anxiety and fear about the logistics of the wedding ceremony/reception. However, when it came to the wedding, he did not perform up to my expectations. Previously, he had told me he had all of the equipment for the outdoor ceremony and the reception. but the day of the wedding, he called me while I was getting my hair done (the bride!) to tell me he didn't have the correct cables to stretch from the barn to the gazebo (for the ceremony).He told me the winery told him they had equipment they actually did not have. Of course this freaked me out and I started worrying like crazy. Luckily my family and bridesmaids stepped in and they figured it out. He did have the equipment and calling me was unnecessary and not the best idea. Then, at the reception, he played a lot of older music when I gave him a play list of the updated, newer music I wanted played. My bridesmaids had to go tell him several times that we wanted different music played. He's expensive and it's because he is supposed to essentially help run the ceremony and reception- in a way, a wedding planner. This includes being there for the rehearsal. But b/c Tony books so many weddings, he couldn't be at my rehearsal. THis turned out ok, but it was part of what we payed for. Tony is extremely nice and will work hard. But my experience with him was less than desirable. I would not recommend him even though I believe he is a good guy.
Talon was absolutely beautiful. It was the beautiful, picturesque place I had envisioned having my wedding and my day there fulfilled every expectation I had. The grounds were beautiful, the barn was beautiful. The only issue I had was in the beggining. The woman I booked the winery (Cheryl Sharp) was suddenly no where to be found. I had questions about my upcoming wedding and her cell phone no longer worked and when I called Talon they always said she wasn't availalbe. Eventually my mother called the owners and found out that something had happened to her and they hired someone else. I don' tknow if she was fired or what, we never found out. But it was very unclear and unprofessional. They never put me in contact specifically with the new person and clarified who I was supposed to communicate with. When I finally talked to the new person, she was not as knowledgable. It did all work out in the end.
Beautiful, convenient and comfy beds! They kept my welcome bags for guests behind the desk and handed them out. They gave me a discounted rate and allowed me to add on rooms later on for the same rate. We were 'comped' the honeymooon suite for having so many guests, but then the suite wasn't available so they gave us another one- it was huge- it had a separate living room and dining room/kitchen area. My groom used this to get ready in. The only thing was that we wished we had had the honeymoon suite and all of the construction wasn't done when they said it would be in the lobby.
