Wedding Testimonials


Your Feedback Says it All!

We know we have done our job well when those we have served take the time to say “You made our wedding dreams come true”. We are so happy you chose the Herrington for your special event!

My husband and I have been coming here for years as a special treat on our anniversary.  So when our daughter was looking for a wedding venue I strongly urged her to check you out-on a whim we stopped in so I could show her the facility and stumbled upon Rose who just happened to be there and gladly gave us a tour.  Based on her kindness, down to earth sense of humor and honestly alone we would have jumped a the chance to host the reception at the Herrington.  From the very first second of this chance meeting our daughter felt like her wedding mattered.  And that was the beginning of what turned out to be the most delightful collaboration.  Rose and Deanne are the dream team of coordinators.  Their attention to, and delight in, the details is professional, courteous and genuine.

Beautiful, classy, elegant, unforgettable…..just a few characteristics to describe this venue.  My husband and I enjoyed our reception there and we are overjoyed.  Deanne and Rose were absolute rockstars.  they are so knowledgeable and incredibly helpful, not to mention fun and friendly.  The decorations at Christmas time are breathtaking, creating a magical setting.  The food…DELICIOUS.  Our guests were commenting on the food all night.  The bartenders were fantastic and servers were attentive.  The hotel is beautiful.  We are so lucky and incredibly happy to have had our reception at this beautiful place!

If you’re looking for a beautiful, unique wedding venue with an amazing view of the Fox River, delicious food and extremely helpful staff, we recommend The Herrington.  We visited the venue a couple of weeks after we got engaged and were immediately sold due in large part to the sales staff Deanne and Rose. With years of wedding experience, Deanne and Rose were probably the best team anyone could ever ask for when planning a wedding: I can’t imagine what we would’ve done without them!  Again, the venue itself is beautiful, but if you’re looking for extra help from a coordination perspective, this is definitely the place for you. Also, be sure to use their preferred  vendors.  Everyone knows each other and their way around the hotel, which left us feeling relieved and in good hands the entire time.

Had my daughters wedding here, I cannot begin to say enough great things about the venue, the food and the staff.  You will NOT regret having your wedding here.  It’s an amazing place, detail oriented, over and above excellent service.  You can’t go wrong here, seriously.
Dawn -July 2018

I wish I could give them 6 or 7 stars! I can’t say enough good things about The Herrington Inn & Spa.  Rose and Deanne were amazing and always made me feel like their only priority even when I stopped by unannounced with questions.  They worked with us to make the most of our budget.  They set everyone up for our reception exactly how I had imagined it and they repacked everything for us to take home the next day. The space is beautiful, the food was amazing and our guests loved the night time cookies and milk service in their rooms.
Amy-February 2018 

The staff was warm and friendly and we initially met with Deanne and Rose and they were so kind, friendly, and had high energy.  We immediately said to each other, this is the place, due to the beauty of the place, but overall, the staff.  We both are in the hospitality industry, and customer service is always high on our list.  So, we chose The Herrington for the staff and of course the uniqueness and beauty of the place.
Jenn and Chad – October 2017

Deanne was beyond amazing at making it unbelievably easy to want to choose your facility.  Then when we met Rose, and saw how terrifically well Deanne and Rose worked together, we knew we found the perfect spot.  So, my final answer for why we chose your place was because of Deanne and Rose’s confidence, positive attitude, and love for what they do.
Cristiana and Bryan – September 2017

It was amazing and I really want to thank Rose and Deanne for making our day the best it could possibly be.  We had people from out of town and were there a day before the wedding.  The entire staff was so helpful with anything we needed.  They walked me through everything and took the worrying away.  We appreciated them so much.  The food was absolutely amazing and everyone kept raving about how good everything was and how beautiful the venue was.  I cannot thank them enough!
Danielle and Joshua – August 2017

When Pat and I came in to have a conference with Deanne and Rose about our reception, we were blown away by how warm and caring they were.  They catered to our every need and gave us such helpful suggestions to make our wedding even more than we could have ever imagined.  They were the SPARK that made us understand we really wanted to use the Herrington!  We have recommended The Herrington to many of our friends, and will continue to do so.
Rae Anne and Pat – May 2017

We went to a lot of places, and it was easy to choose The Herrington.  We talk about our wonderful wedding day all the time.  Best advertising you can get is word of mouth and we certainly spread the word that The Herrington is the sweetest place to celebrate a wedding.  We were over the moon with our special day and Deanne, Rose, and the rest of the staff made it a pure pleasure!
Mary and Jim – May 2016

I cannot say enough about the staff and facility at the Herrington Inn! Deanne and Cyndi are so accommodating and have lots of suggestions for design and setup. The banquet staff, especially Ian, is absolutely amazing! They take pride in what they do and work together so seamlessly. On top of the wonderful staff, the facility is so unique and beautiful.
Morgan and Andy

The Herrington was the best venue we could have asked for. Deanne and Cyndi were incredibly friendly and accommodating, and Deanne went out of her way on the big day to ensure everything went smoothly. All other staff (the servers, the bartender, etc.) were thoughtful and attentive, as well. All the guests at the wedding raved about the food, as well as the impeccable service, and the overall experience was outstanding.
Kathryn and Daniel

I don’t know how we were lucky enough to find the Herrington Inn, but the whole experience was like a fairy tale. Perfection at every turn. Thank you for making our dream wedding come true!
Chrissy and Mike

This was the best wedding that we could ever ask for. Deanne and Cyndi were amazing every step of the way. I have received so many compliments on our wedding and I will definitely be contacting the Herrington for any future events that we throw!
Katie and Steven

Family said that the presentation by the wait staff was like watching a well-choreographed show. Guests said that the meal was one of the best they’d ever had. Several guests want to come back for a weekend at the Herrington!
Rhae and Mike

If you are considering booking your wedding at the Herrington, do it! Look no further! It was the absolute best wedding venue I have ever been to. Our guests loved the unique experience of being able to have a drink by the river and then go back inside to dance. My guests raved about the food and service – there was one of a kind attention to detail. Also, listen to Deanne’s suggestions! I was not receptive to her advice at first, and I should have been. She absolutely knows 100% what is best for your wedding at the Herrington…you are in the best hands with Deanne and the Herrington!
Carrie and Zach

We looked at many venues for our wedding but as soon as we walked into the Herrington we knew it was the perfect place for us. Deanne was so professional and helpful from start to finish. She made our day stress- free and everything was absolutely perfect. Other venues were pretty, but the Herrington has such class and raised the bar of wedding venues. We can’t thank you enough!
Gillian and Chris

I can’t imagine a better venue for a wedding. My husband, myself & all of our guests were so impressed with the Herrington, the service & cuisine. The presentation was outstanding & I couldn’t have gotten through my day without Deanne Mitchell’s help! She made it the best day of my life, It was simply outstanding!
Suzi and Matt

Deanne is by far the best in the business. I still have people complimenting me because they say we thought of everything, but without Deanne, my wedding would have been a disaster. Thank you so much!
Dena and Peter

The Herrington Inn & Spa gave us a wedding that has and will be talked about for many years to come! Thank you for making our dreams come true!
Samantha and Jason

Outstanding, classy, first-rate attention to every single detail throughout the planning process, as well as, during the outdoor wedding ceremony cocktails and reception. Deanne Mitchell and the entire Herrington staff catered to our specific wedding requests while offering wonderful creative suggestions to ensure that our daughter’s wedding was a wonderful and happy day!  Thank you so much.
Nicole and Rudy

There is no need to look elsewhere for your special event!  It is almost as if the staff can take your vision, make it their own and produce a spectacular day. My wedding went off without a hitch, and it was because the staff cared enough to ensure it. Your event is their event, and they take pride in their services.
Shelly and David

When you find the person you want to spend the rest of your life with you just know it. You feel it deep in your heart, in your soul and that kind of love takes your breath away. When you find the place that you want to marry that person you get the same feeling. The minute we walked into the courtyard at The Herrington we knew that was the place we wanted to get married. From the gorgeous trees to the Fox River in the background it was just the most picturesque place we had ever been. The hotel has a homey feeling, from the friendly staff that welcomes you when you walk in the door to the milk and cookies they leave at night. The banquet room has the most elegant touches from the brick wall, to the windows on the far side, it is just the most fabulous and cozy room for family and friends. You will not find a staff that is more refined or tuned in to the needs of their guests than the staff at The Herrington. Our wedding is something that we will remember for a lifetime, and a part of that is The Herrington and we could not have asked for a more perfect day!!
Vicki and Jeff

The Herrington has a European ambiance that makes an event unique and charming. Deanne Mitchell, the event coordinator uses her experience to work with you to incorporate your ideas to create an unforgettable wedding. We were thrilled from beginning to finish!
Lindsey and Tim

We were very impressed with the entire event. During the course of the evening we heard countless compliments on the venue and the meal served. Some of these compliments included, “This was the best wedding dinner I have ever been served,” and “This is the most beautiful wedding arrangement I have ever seen.” We spent a lot of time and money on this event, and we can’t think of a single thing that we would change. Thank you very much Deanne, Ian, and the rest of the Herrington staff for making it a wonderful weekend of celebration.
Jennifer and Jarrod

Five star, world class service! This comes from a couple that stayed at 5 star hotels around the world. We couldn’t be happier or want anything more! The staff, especially the manager Deanne, are unbelievably professional, helpful and nice. They guessed our wishes and did things without asking. I would recommend them to anyone who’s looking to have their event coordinated with utmost care and attention to smallest details.
