  • I’m not even sure where to begin with this post. From the moment I toured the Umstead and met with Ms. Kayla Bower, I knew it would be my top choice. I can’t express how deeply grateful I am that I went with my gut. We were forced to postpone our wedding one week before our original date due to COVID. Kayla and her team at the Umstead were so incredibly thoughtful, gracious, and flexible with us, given the circumstances. They truly helped us make the best of what seemed like an awful situation. When the day came to finally celebrate our wedding, of course we faced further COVID hiccups and weather issues. The Umstead acted quickly to accommodate us and the situation and did their absolute best to make our wedding as close to our original vision as possible, while keeping in mind COVID restrictions and guidelines for everyone’s health and safety. As an anxious bride I fully trusted Kayla and her team at The Umstead and they completely alleviated my stress and worry about perfectin... Read more

  • To have your day be nothing less than amazing look into the Umstead Hotel and Spa. Not only getting to marry my best friend but we had our dream wedding with the most amazing staff! From the moment you walk in to when you leave you will have nothing to worry about. Kayla and her staff listen to what you would like and make it all and then some happen! Do not over look this hidden place or think it might be to much. It is worth every penny and more! Can’t say enough or thank them enough for everything they did for us!

  • Kayla Bower was truly the best to work with! She went above & beyond in sharing her vast knowledge and wedding planning expertise for our recent wedding. She made our entire wedding planning process run smoothly and made sure that nothing was out of place — everything looked absolutely perfect! Kayla continually worked with us and helped us create personalized touches, an amazing day, and truly unforgettable memories. Our wedding was truly the best day of our lives and we loved every minute of it! We owe it all to Kayla and the wonderful Umstead team!

  • We could not have asked for a better venue to host our large, Italian/Colombian/Southern wedding. The Umstead staff and service is incredible as our many guests complimented them to us throughout the evening. We knew from the initial meeting to expect an excellent wedding weekend but they far surpassed anything we could have imagined. Terri and her team answered all of my questions in a timely and helpful manner throughout the planning process. The wedding packages at the Umstead include so much that the planning on me and my husband was really quite minimal. And none of that even begins to touch on how INSANE the food was!! Good luck whittling down your choices of meals and hor d'oeurves, because they were all spectacular and delicious. I cannot thank this venue enough! You will want to book your wedding here!!

  • Kayla Bower, the Umstead event coordinator, along with Gina, our day of wedding planner, went above and beyond to make our big day an absolute dream, the kind of day you imagine having as a little girl! From the ceremony location outside, to the reception in the grand ballroom, the entire day felt like a fairytale with attention to every last detail. We were adamant on including several personal touches into our wedding that could not have been incorporated without their help. Our guests were completely blown away by the high-quality service, friendly staff, beautiful venue, and overall experience at the Umstead. There is no other place I could’ve pictured having my wedding or a better team out there. The food was absolutely incredible -- the best meal we have ever had. It was so good, we wish we could have it all over again! The service was, unbelievably, even better. The staff treated us and our guests like royalty.

  • Oh my gosh! Where do I start???!!! First of all, I’m a photographer in the industry and have been shooting weddings for 15 years so I knew exactly where I wanted to get married! The Umstead did not disappoint and exceeded my expectations 100 times over. From the room, to the food, to the attention to every little detail I was blown away by them. We ended up extending our stay by 4 days!! My parents wouldn’t even stay with us(we’re local) because they love the hotel so much! None of us wanted our time to end! I just can’t say enough good things about The Umstead and their staff. We felt like royalty!! And Amanda...I could go on and on! This is a person that is beautiful inside and out not to mention amazing at her job! Even though we have a personal relationship, she treated me with the utmost professionalism and I felt so special throughout the entire process. I get teary-eyed just thinking about it. Umstead, Amanda, Heavenly and the rest of the team, we thank you from the bott... Read more

  • We recently got married in November and it was an absolute dream!! The Umstead treated us with such class and grace from the very first day! Amanda and Heavenly are truly a god send! From the beginning until the end they were there to support in every way! The Umstead service was out of this world and the food is amazing. I would recommend anyone to choose The Umstead as their wedding venue! Truly world class!! I can't thank them enough!!!

  • Everything Amanda and The Umstead did was absolutely perfect! I had little to no doubts throughout the entire planning of the wedding because I knew it would be taken care of! The whole ceremony was flawless and the service and accommodations were beyond my expectations. I would without second thought recommend Amanda Colfer to anyone looking to plan their wedding or any event at The Umstead.

  • Having just had my wedding at the Umstead Hotel, I must say that the memories are still really fresh in my mind. Everyone on staff that night was fabulous, my now husband and I left with more friends than when we got there. The food is absolutely fantastic and our venue coordinator Amanda made sure that every little detail about it was executed flawlessly. Amanda is the sweetest, most diligent, compassionate, understanding, hard working, creative, and friendliest site coordinator you could ask for! As a bride you want to make sure that you don't have anything to worry about on your wedding day and Amanda is definitely the person you can hand the reigns over to without a doubt. The Umstead grounds are beautiful and every area is picture worthy. Never has the expression you get what you pay for been more apt than the Umstead, and its worth every penny. The one note I will make to brides who chose to get married on the wedding lawn: if it has even considered raining recently, invest in he... Read more

  • The Umstead was the perfect place for our wedding! The service, hotel, grounds, food... everything was amazing! Amanda Colfer did every thing she could to ensure our day was the day of our dreams-including holding an umbrella over my head when it started raining. She treated me like a princess and I will never forget her stellar customer service and kindness. She genuinely cares and made wedding planning far less stressful! If you’re thinking about the Umstead, don’t think anymore! Book them!

  • Having our wedding at The Umstead was an absolute dream come true! We fell in love with the location and everything that their wedding packages had to offer. Amanda was our coordinator and she was very responsive to emails. As a bride, I wanted answers fast, haha! Amanda was so patient with us and accommodating. She definitely put us at ease and we were reassured that everything would be taken care of. Amanda pays close attention to all of the small details. We loved that their wedding package included a wedding planner. Amanda and the wedding planner had a great relationship and they took care of everything! The second we stepped into the hotel on our wedding weekend, we were treated with the utmost respect by the entire staff. Everyone was so professional. We were extremely impressed and felt like royalty. We received several hand-written notes during our stay and special yummy treats were delivered to the room. Our guests loved the classy environment and had a great time!! And, of c... Read more
