What Our Guests Are Saying…
JoAnne, Brittany, and the entire Sunnybrook team helped us plan our dream wedding. JoAnne was very responsive and worked with us to ensure the day went off without a hitch. Brittany has an incredible eye and passion for detail and design. She brought our vision to life in the ballroom. The ballroom is absolutely stunning and can accomodate any size wedding, and the staff will do all that they can to make sure that the space looks full but not crowded. The staff was so friendly and the food was incredible.We opted for a buffet so that our guests had options, and it was a hit. I highly recommend the risotto station! My guests could not get enough of that all night. Throughout the night, JoAnne made sure that my husband and I ate and took care of getting us drinks and whatever we needed so that we could enjoy our evening and spend time with our guests. Our reception was outside in the wedding garden, and Brittany did a wonderful job decorating the arch and the ceremony space. The space looked so lovely and the pictures definitely showcase that. The grounds themselves are well shaded which helps when it comes to pictures. We had a late June wedding and it was hot, but having the shade made a huge difference. We are so fortunate that we found Sunnybrook and so lucky to have worked with such an outstanding team that went above and beyond for us.

I can’t say enough about SunnyBrook. It took us awhile to find the right place, but once we found SunnyBrook, we knew it was the perfect fit. JoAnne, Brittany, and the rest of the staff were a pleasure to work with from start to finish. Despite all of our questions, hand-wringing, and occasional anxiety, they guided us with an expert hand and absolute confidence that we soon came to share. We were in the most capable of hands throughout it all. The venue itself is beautiful and full of history, which was important to our families. It’s a much larger space than we needed for our guest count (~150), but by the time everything was set up, it didn’t feel excessive at all. The food was outstanding, and we got many great reviews from our guests. I wouldn’t have changed a thing about it.

My husband and I cannot offer enough compliments to SunnyBrook Ballroom. We looked at multiple venues for our wedding, including several vineyards near Charlottesville, Virginia and locations throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and our wedding (~110 people) at SunnyBrook was far more than we had ever hoped for. Sales: Of all the people at the venues we considered, JoAnne was the friendliest sales director we met and the most willing to work with us and our budget. We had been looking at rustic locations, and JoAnne figured out a way for us to have the wedding ceremony in their rustic social house and the reception in the ballroom, which worked out perfectly. She was responsive to our questions and put us in touch with multiple people throughout SunnyBrook who helped us plan the wedding. Ultimately, we always felt like we had someone who cared about our day working with us. Food: Amazing! While I am underselling the reception dinner, we had strip steaks, Thai curry chicken, and Gnocchi as our entrée options with numerous hors d’oeuvres. Our guests loved their food, with several people mentioning that it was the first wedding they had attended where they “actually liked the food.” The presentation was superb, and the service was excellent. Organization: Brittany, the banquet organizer, pulled the wedding day together for us. In several instances, we essentially threw a bunch of decorations and ideas at her and she made something beautiful from our mess. On the day of the wedding, she coordinated with JoAnne, the DJ, the Reverend, us (pretty much everyone involved) to make our day as smooth as possible. While I am sure there were several issues that arose during the day, few of them ever reached us because Brittany had handled them. Location: SunnyBrook Ballroom has an amazing legacy, and I highly recommend doing some research on it. This is a location that was nearly lost and is now a protected historical site. The ballroom itself is beautiful and spacious, and the social house has perfect rustic charm. Final thoughts: Our experience with SunnyBrook was simply fantastic. I can’t think of a way the wedding day could have been better.

I do not even know where to begin! Sunnybrook and their staff did an absolutely amazing job! We had the best day ever and everything went as planned. JoAnne and Brittany definitely went above and beyond in making our day so special. We had our ceremony at the outdoor site, had our cocktail hour in the Social House, and the reception was in the Ballroom. We chose to have a buffet style meal which we do not regret our decision one bit! Planning: JoAnne and Brittany were super quick with responding to emails and answering all of our questions. Each step of the planning either JoAnne or Brittany were contacting us and keeping us on track. The Week Of: Brittany and JoAnne met with my husband and I to go over all the last minute details, the seating chart and everything other little detail that a bride has on her brain the week before her wedding. They took care of everything!! We brought over all of our decorations a few days before our wedding. I did not worry one bit leaving all of the setting up and decorating in their hands! Day Of: Words can’t express how hard JoAnne, Brittany, and the staff at Sunnybrook worked to make our day perfect! I used a wagon for our flower girl during the ceremony and I did not have time to decorate the outside of it. As I was getting ready to walk down the aisle, I looked at the wagon and noticed Brittany worked her magic and made it match the rest of the ceremony! ( I didn’t even ask her to do that!) I walked walked into the ballroom and had tears in my eyes! Everything was set up as we had planned and looked amazing! The bar service, service at the buffet and the service during cocktail hour was perfect. We even had our own personal server find us during our picture session to make sure Kyle and I had hors d’oeuvres! Needless to say we were thrilled with everything. Food: I need to mention that the chef did a phenomenal job on our buffet! There were so many guests raving about how good the food was! Overall, Sunnybrook was amazing!
