We had an absolutely fabulous experience hosting our wedding at Sunset Bluffs. Our day was smooth and perfect, which was made possible due to Gretchen, Pat and Sharron. We had no worries during our day as we trusted the Sunset Bluffs team to take care of everything, to which they went above and beyond on.
We received so many compliments from our guests on our venue as we were lucky enough with weather to truly utilize the entire grounds-- married outside, cocktail hour under the tent, dinner inside and then back outside to dance the night away! The best part is that the venue is SO beautiful on it's own, that we really did not need much at all in terms of decorations, giving us one less thing to worry about!

Our wedding at Sunset Bluffs was glamorous! Both Sharron and Gretchen were very detail oriented and the quality of service was beyond expected! They were very open to new ideas and were the best at keeping communication over our 2-year engagement.
They were especially helpful in making our dream wedding come true! We did the weekend package and from the time we got there Friday morning to the time we exited Sunday afternoon, they were there for support and ready to lend a helping hand throughout the whole weekend! 10 out of 10 recommend this venue and the fireworks package!

In December Gretchen and her husband became the new owners and I could not have had a better wedding experience. The venue was spotless and well taken care when we arrived. A couple weeks before the wedding they were making sure to keep in touch a couple times a week to keep us on track. They were flexible planning in the heat and let us know any detail we might not have thought of. As a younger bride, 23, I really appreciated this. I had a stress free, no problem wedding and it is all thanks to Gretchen and her manager Sharron. Highly recommend!!!

We had our wedding here May 20th and it was so beautiful and moved along without an issue. Gretchen and Sharron were amazing to work with. I felt like everything went so smoothly and I couldn't have asked for a better day. The team was responsive, and professional. I wish I could verbalize more how fantastic they made our wedding.
