  • I waited almost nine months (we got married last summer) to write this review to make sure that my feelings didn't change given perspective. I don't want to have these feelings towards my wedding venue. I would not recommend this location as a wedding venue, especially if they are still working with Valley Catering. I'll be writing a separate review for Valley Catering, but they served a wrong menu at our wedding, disregarding our explicit requests and instructions. Our contract required us to use this catering service- we didn't have a choice. If Orchid is still using Valley after this incident, I would no longer trust their judgement. The food was GROSS and most of my guests left hungry. When people remember my wedding, the first thing they remember is the dry meat and tasteless food. I'm under the impression that the rest of the issues we had during the weekend of our wedding occurred because one of the owners was undergoing a health crisis and was in and out of the hospital ...

  • Fantastic grounds, all the amenities you could need for a wedding, and friendly staff. I did not need to worry about ANYTHING the day of my wedding - Agie (day-of coordinator) had it all completely taken care of. We chose to book the venue for the weekend because it was a great price for what was offered. I would highly recommend booking your wedding or event at the Purple Orchid. As an added bonus they also have a pool, hot tub, and spa on-site!!

  • My husband and I got married at the Purple Orchid in September. From the start, they were so incredibly responsive and easy to work with. We fell in love with the venue from our very first meeting. Everything leading up to the wedding went smoothly. They are an extremely organized team, and are always happy to help make the day perfect. The day of our wedding was so wonderful, they handled everything from the schedule to the decor and coordinating with the other vendors. Our bridal party all stayed the night at the hotel also which was a blast. The food was also fantastic, we have received endless compliments on Valley Catering. I would not hesitate to recommend Purple Orchid as a wedding venue, it was a dream come true!

  • Danelle is great to work with. She's understanding and level-headed. The location is great for a small wedding- fair prices and non-corporate feeling like you would get from a chain hotel. Looking forward to my wedding this September.

  • We fell in love with this venue as soon as we stepped foot onto the property and they were so helpful at bringing our vision to life! We loved that our family and friends could stay on the property and that we could have the place for the whole weekend. This spot is such a hidden gem and was awesome also having a spa on site! I got two facials there and were the best ones I have ever gotten. The owners are the most adorable couple, had a very relaxed demeanor and made us feel relaxed throughout the planning and whole wedding weekend. Thank you PO for making this special time in our lives so spectacular!!!

  • Purple Orchid Inn is the perfect wedding venue with the best staff and hands-on owners. We had a lot of must-have items (i.e. all-inclusive wedding package, on-site lodging, dog-friendly, etc.). Most venues couldn’t accommodate our needs given our budget—then came Purple Orchid Inn! The experience leading up to, and on our big day, far exceeded our expectations. The staff were quick on their feet when it started raining and managed to redirect the guests to the event room from outside. I can go on and on about how great Purple Orchid Inn is, but you’ll just have to see for yourself!

  • I just got married at the Purple Orchid less than 2 weeks ago, and it was amazing! The site is so beautiful, and you can really make your wedding almost like a destination wedding even if you live locally. We had our rehearsal dinner on site Friday night, wedding Saturday night, and brunch Sunday morning before everyone left. It was awesome to have our families stay on the property with us and spend more time with them throughout the weekend. As the other reviewers mentioned, Danelle, the on-site coordinator, is fantastic. She works with you as much or as little as you need, and takes care of so much! From ordering any extra rentals you want to setting up your guest book table and other day of details, she is truly awesome. And while weddings aren't cheap, you get a pretty good bang for your buck at Purple Orchid. I could go on and on about the Purple Orchid, but it is truly a spectacular wedding venue and I would highly recommend it to any bride looking for a smooth and stunning weddi... Read more

  • FABULOUS! AMAZING!! ROMANTIC!!! PERFECT!!!! My sister actually found the Purple Orchid for us about a year before we were even engaged. We stayed there as a test run and fell in love with the venue. Once my fiancé formally proposed I think the 4th call we made was to the Purple Orchid to reserve our date. We have loved working with them. The location is beautiful and very versatile. We were able to have our rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception, and brunch all at the same location, and stay on property as well! The staff is fabulous. The owners know their stuff and were a huge help with both little and big details. They have an onsite wedding coordinator who helped with everything. She even stepped in as an emergency back up make up artist when mine backed out at the last minute. When we first met with the owner and wedding coordinator we walked away wanting to be friends with them. Every time we met (or emailed) with them we felt at ease. They supplied a fabulous list of preferred ve... Read more

  • We had our Wedding Reception on Sunday 9/20/15 at Purple Orchid. It is a favorite spot of my husband and I as we go quarterly for Massage appointments and to relax by the pool with some wine and cheese platter. The venue was everything we wanted it to be. Rhiannon the owner and her husband and the event Coordinator, Danelle did an amazing job! Everything was beautiful and even if something was a little off, they were quick to remedy it and keep it seamless. Chef Joe is amazing and everyone loved the food!. The lights at night out in the olive trees were beautiful and everything I had ever imagined it would be. We will definitely be coming back here for years to come, and can now share the memory of our special day! Tina and Keith Rodgers

  • In the great wedding venue search of 2013, we visited no less than 10 wedding venues and I only had two nervous breakdowns, but thankfully found The Purple Orchid and hit all the points that we wanted in a wedding venue. -Capability for an outdoor ceremony (rose garden) and outdoor reception (olive orchard). -Included basic rentals (tables, chairs, linens) -Included an event manager/day-of-wedding coordinator (Hi Olivia! You're awesome!!!!) -Had a backup plan for rain in October (event center, it's ok but significantly less breathtaking than the olive orchard) Both Rhiannon (owner) and Olivia (event manager) were AMAZING. We worked with Rhiannon to book our wedding date and for any contract and wedding payment questions. She was flexible and answered all of our questions promptly. We worked with Olivia to plan the big day. She kept us on track in wedding planning and was fabulous the day-of. She was exactly what I was looking for in an event manager/day-of-coordinator...

  • This place is absolutely repulsive. They have zero regard for compassion towards human beings. My sister was engaged for 6 months. She chose purple orchid as the venue for her wedding. Fast forward, after a devastating and heart breaking stream of events, she was forced to call off the engagement just a couple weeks after she had put down her $5,000 deposit. She called purple orchid to explain her devastating situation and asked if there was any possibility to get her money back. She was told that there was absolutely no way that they could provide a refund, and had the audacity to ask her to sign a document to release that date so that they could rebook. We completely understand that the venue is under no obligation to refund her. She did not expect them to refund her right away. She asked them if she could get her money back if and when that date is booked and locked in by someone else. Their answer was a firm no. Essentially she paid them $5,000 just to have her name on their books.... Read more

  • The Purple Orchid was a BEAUTIFUL venue. It exceeded our expectations. We got the weekend package and were able to have family and friends stay at the resort for the whole weekend. They were always very responsive to my overwhelming amount of emails and I had several in person meetings with the event planner (they changed event planners mid-way through my planning which I was bummed about). They are a little strict with their policies, but have a little more flexibility as the wedding weekend came closer. Overall, I would choose the Purple Orchid again for my wedding venue. The staff was very helpful and provided quality services.
