  • I can't say enough great things about this vendor especially Melanie. She has been very helpful and responsive to any and all questions we had. With Covid-19 they were so easy to work with as far as giving us what all our available options were and helping us to reschedule. We ended up pushing to next year but cannot wait as we know it will be a fabulous day thanks to their wonderful team!!!!

  • We had such a great experience with On the Rocks. Since we were organizing during COVID restrictions, the staff was fantastic with accommodating our requests and working with us to make sure we were able to celebrate our bride. The staff were all so great and friendly. The location was beautiful, spacious, and fit our need perfectly. The food and drinks were delicious and our guests told us they were very pleased with their meals.

  • Our clients booked Fox Hopyard only two weeks prior to their wedding. Melanie made the arrangements seamless and went above and beyond with all the last minute changes. The day of the wedding was probably the windiest day of 2020 and the crew powered through it to make the day perfect! Addelle, Kyra, Mathias and Delta worked so hard and we had a blast working with everyone!

  • On the Rocks has been great with helping us navigate our wedding planning. We postponed our wedding date due to COVID and they were completely accommodating and understanding. Looking forward to having our celebration here when we can!

  • This has been a crazy year with a ton of unexpected firsts but working with Fox Hopyard and Melanie has been amazing. They made rescheduling our wedding to 2021 the least stressful it could possibly be. I cannot wait to continue working with them next year!

    Thank you so much Tessa! We are so glad we could help make these last few months a little less stressfull for you. We look forward to working with you and planning your dream wedding!

  • I just got married here Sept 2020 and would never want it any other way! My guest can not stop raving about how amazing it was. The planning process was so easy, the staff will do everything they possibly can to make your day so special. Mel was so kind and helpful every step of the way and on my wedding day she was there to assist me and make sure everything went perfect! The food was absolutely amazing! The venue itself is breathtaking! The staff were all very kind and did an amazing job! Even with covid my wedding was absolutely perfect and I couldnt of been any happier thanks to On the Rocks and all of the staff, they really know how to put on beautiful fun weddings!!

  • My daughter and son-in-law just got married here in Sept 2020. This venue is GORGEOUS! Their guests have been gushing about how wonderful and truly amazing the entire day was. Too many compliments to include them all in this review. Everything was perfect, in spite of COVID-19. Melanie and her staff were attentive to every detail and patient with all the re-planning as rules continued to change. On their special day, the food was delicious and picture perfect! The chef was so detailed-oriented that he designed a scrumptious menu that kept food allergies in mind so that there were no issues for anyone in attendance. The serving staff was fantastic! I could not have been any happier!!! Use them and you will have a spectacular day as well!

  • Beautiful scenery, made for the most perfect day for us! Everyone complimented the scenery as well as the Main Hall. The food was amazing and they worked with us easily with all allergies. The Patio was a great spot for our ceremony and we loved the outdoor reception area looking over the range. We worked with Melanie and she was extremely helpful and made our day just as we dreamed!

  • If we could rate On the Rocks Restaurant 10 stars we would! We were married here on September 14th 2019. Melanie was our event manager and let me tell you; she is a gift to the wedding planning world! She was very quick to answer all my emails and help me with any detail I was unsure about. We did a total buy out of the restaurant for the day ( gave us lots of flexibility with the event space and privacy) We held our ceremony on the stone patio, cocktail hour under the pavilion, our plated dinner was served inside the restaurant, and the reception was held back out on under the pavilion- where we danced the night away. With all the moving of the event I was nervous about it transitioning seamlessly (waste of time – it all went perfectly) The food was spectacular- we are still receiving complement a month later about how delicious everything was! Kudos to the Chef! Above all else I have to say that the staff at OTRR was top notch- they were all so much fun to work with! The night of ... Read more

  • We got married June 22, 2019 at Fox Hopyard. What an amazing night!!! As I write this post a couple weeks later, we're STILL getting compliments from our guests about the venue itself, the attentive staff who were on top of every little detail, the food (OUTSTANDING!), and what an all-around perfect time it was! Melanie, who was our primary contact at Fox Hopyard, managed everything flawlessly and did an amazing job from start to finish! We couldn't have been happier with how everything went! THANK YOU!!!! Lisa & Ed

  • We got rejected from a lot of venues for our 100 person wedding being too small, but we were just the right size for On the Rocks. Planning went very smoothly with Melanie, who was always accommodating of my emails, even when I accidentally emailed her on her days off a few times. The bridal suite was perfect for everything, and we were able to order food to be brought up for lunch. The ceremony space was fantastic, and has the added bonus of a roof in case it had rained. The photo locations all over are gorgeous, and my photographer was really pleased with all the options. Our reception was great, all the guests loved the space. We added bistro lights and the fire pit and both were perfect. The food was also incredible! We knew it would be good after our tasting, but so many of our guests came up to tell us it was some of the best wedding food they had ever had, which is hard to get perfect when you're serving 100 people at once. I would highly recommend On the Rocks for weddings my s... Read more

  • My husband and I were married here on February 9th, 2019. This was such a beautiful, perfect venue!! I wouldn't change a thing! Melanie was so amazingly helpful and welcoming throughout our entire planning process and she went the extra mile to keep things running smoothly on wedding day. We managed to have an 'outdoor wedding' in February without being cold at all! -- we had tent flaps with windows put up around the pavilion and had our ceremony overlooking the gorgeous landscape. Plenty of heaters, worked amazingly! The catering via On The Rocks was really well done, too. You can choose between plated entrees or self serve manned stations. We did the stations and it was great, it allowed mingling and energized the mood, and everyone got to pick something they actually liked to eat! Overall, I have to say I can't recommend the venue enough! Our day was more than everything I dreamed it could be and we truly couldn't be happier. Thank you guys so much, and I hope all of the fu...

  • Where do I even begin? Kristi and the Fox Hopyard gave us not just our dream wedding, but Kristi made the most stressful event I have ever planned in my life as painless and enjoyable as possible. If I could give her and this venue 6/5 stars, I would. She was as fast as lightning with her answers to all of my (perpetual) questions, which is an anxious bride's dream. She explained everything clearly and to our understanding, and they were as flexible as possible to give us exactly what we wanted on our special day. She handled every detail with our vendors to ensure that the only thing I had to do on my special day was sit back, relax, and have fun! The food is absolutely incredible. The venue is stunning, and she even made sure the landscaping was taken care of a day or so before the wedding! They have a gigantic, beautiful bridal suite for you to get ready. She even offered us some goodies for the morning of, which was such a surprising and sweet treat! And their pricing is incredibly... Read more
