Che'ne Rouge was the perfect place for my wedding! I planned my wedding from Houston, TX and our wedding coordinator, Allison, made planning a wedding from out of state so much less stressful than it could've been. The vendors including the DJ and caterer both were amazing and able to accommodate us when we were able to come in town to do wedding planning. Although the florist, Nina's, services were very affordable, I was not impressed with the centerpieces that were provided. They did not look anything like the pictures that I provided her. Jesse, our photographer, was amazing and gave great direction when taking our pictures on the big day! I can't wait to see our pictures, I know they will turn out great. Lastly, our wedding coordinator, Allison, was the BEST! She was always quick to answer my emails with questions, she worked with us to get everything with we wanted regarding decor, and she was on top of everything on our wedding day, which insured us that we had nothing to worry about! Thanks to Allison and Che'ne Rouge for making our wedding day a day that we will remember forever!- Kacey Scott

Chene Rouge was an excellent venue for our wedding and everyone gave us plenty of compliments about the venue and that everything was well organized and flowed well. We had the Grand Fare package which included florist, dj, coordinator, photographer and caterer. We used all vendors except the photographer. I broke down my thoughts on each item below.Venue: The venue is well kept and I love the garden and reception hall. There is an additional patio for guest to hang out and a new addition of a photo booth room. Only complaint was that the grooms lounge was warm and the guys were uncomfortable. They were not in there long so it worked out great. They have even started building a rain pavilion that looks beautiful for future weddings that need a Rain Plan B.Contracts with Venue: I did like the listing of prices that was given to us in a packet form. I will say closer towards the big day, contract details started to get confusing. Chene had changed prices from the original contract so I had to compare the two and remind them of the prices we originally agreed to. I will recommend anyone doing a contract with Chene should review them thoroughly because several prices changed on us, however It was no issue to get the originally prices agreed. One suggestion for Chene is that It would have been very helpful to get an itemized invoice of everything that outlines the exact pricing, since there are several additional add-on fees (optional items you can add such as chandeliers, chargers, etc.). We had a bit of confusion and ended up overpaying.Food: Food was excellent; Gwen does a great job preparing all the food. We got compliments on the food and how tasty it was.Florist: The florist did an excellent job and her pricing is very reasonable. We have started recommending Nina to friends because her flowers came out perfect.DJ: The DJs did a great job and were very organized. They play music from guest entrance all the way to the big exit of the bride and groom. Would recommend.Wedding coordinator: Chene Rouge offers a wedding coordinator with their package. Our planner was Allison and she was excellent! She gave us the step by step throughout the day. She even brought us drinks during the toasts and dinner. I would recommend her to everybody.Overall, it was a great experience and they make planning very easy.- Courtney Jackson

From the very first time walking through the venue, I absolutely fell in love! Between the gorgeous outside ceremony space and the elegant decor on the inside, I knew this was the place I was going to marry my best friend! The staff are the kindest people you will ever meet. They are wonderful at answering any questions or even concerns you may have. Allison was our wedding coordinator and she was such a delight to work with. It was amazing not to have to make any more decisions the day of the wedding. You don't have to worry about a thing, Allison takes care of everything for you that day! I would recommend Che'ne Rouge to anyone who is looking for a elegant and timeless wedding!!-Simone Dempsey

If you're a bride looking for a venue with rustic charm and touch of elegance Chene Rouge is the perfect place to be. They're budget friendly and the best part they make planning your wedding a breeze everything from your cake, alcohol, catering, flowers, decor, dj, coordinator, and photographer can all be included in their packages... which is a huge plus for those of us who hate going thru all the extra hassle of searching for outside vendors. You could do any color scheme, any theme it’s totally up to you. They have an onsite coordinator and she’s amazing she'll work with you and ensure everything goes as planned. The staff is incredible and the food provided by the caterer and my lovely wedding cake were all delicious! We've gotten a lot of compliments. Thank you guys for making our special day the best day ever!!- Shana Cook

On August 9, 2015 we held our dream wedding at Chene Rouge. It exceeded our expectations in ways we could never have imagined. Every intricate detail was planned with key contribution from "the gals" (Bonnie "Bon" and Tracy). From inception we discussed all the package options that were available and went with the option that allowed us to utilize all of their preferred vendors (Jesse Garrett Photography (Jesse), G & W Catering (Gwen), DJ's-2-Go (David) and A Perfect Wedding (Gail-Florist). We contracted at a specific amount and that is all we paid. There were no hidden fees or unexplained charges after the fact which allowed us to stay within our budget. Everything we were promised we received and some. We had access to various centerpieces, table decor and the entire facility. The two bridal suites were spacious and each had their on restrooms. Bonnie met with us as often as we requested right up until the day of the wedding. She treated us as if we were the only couple that mattered. Every vendor went above and beyond to make sure our day was special and made recommendations whenever possible based on their experiences. This helped us to make decisions quickly and minimize spending unnecessary time on concepts that wouldn't work with the venue. Our wedding coordinator (Rachel) was fabulous given that we had so many activities planned during our ceremony and reception. She held herself to an impeccable standard as she had to cater to two brides and made sure we each had all of our needs were met. The amount of running back and forth she did was incredible. She made sure that everyone participating in any aspect of our day was cued at the right times. The gals made sure all our guests stayed hydrated as it was an extremely hot and humid day. Jesse captured all the photo moments we requested and many that had us speechless. Gail prepared such an exquisite meal that our guest had multiple plates. One of our guests requested two bags of wings be kept aside strictly for us because they were such a hit during cocktail hour. In addition, to-go boxes were prepared for us so that we could eat later upon our hotel arrival. And yes we enjoyed every bit of it the next day! David our DJ made sure every song we requested for the ceremony and reception was played in its specific order. We had different songs being played for our bridal party reception entrance, surprise performances with special music and a singer for the ceremony. David made sure to go over every detail so that he didn't miss a beat. If you are in the proces of deciding where to get married you should definitely consider Chene Rouge. #Usher-QuinneyWedding -Min Texlin Usher

Allison is AMAZING! She helped us through every step of the process and was quick to respond with questions. The place is beautiful and well equipped with everything you need for the big day. They were super helpful in helping us get what we needed, especially if you're doing an off beat wedding like we did. The dj was very personable and such a great person! The caterer has some of the best food too! All in all I would pick this place again if given the chance.-Becca V

I got married at Che'ne Rouge September 2017 and it was AMAZING! Allison and the vendors (DJ, photographer, caterer and florist) worked with me closely throughout the process to make sure our big day went off without a hitch. The venue is gorgeous as well! I am so happy we got married here and would recommend anyone to consider.- Krissy D

Wonderful experience working with the people from Che'ne Rouge! We chose to use all of their preferred vendors and that made the planning and the entire wedding day go so smoothly. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect venue and staff for making our day feel so special!- Morgan P

Allison, I wanted to reach out to you and express how grateful I am and tell you how impressed I was with the job you did for my daughter's wedding. It was beyond my expectations and you and your staff made the day the most special it could have been. Jason and Ashley had the wedding of her dreams and that's all a father can ask for. You did a remarkable job and it is deeply appreciated. My regards and wishing you the best in your future. Respectfully, Gary Marotta HAPPIEST DAD EVER!!!!😀- Gary M

Where do I even begin? Everyone kept telling us to expect at least one thing to go wrong at our ceremony but looking back, we could not have asked for anything to turn out better than it did. Our coordinator, Allison, was professional from start to finish and absolutely amazingin accommodating the countless phone calls with questions leading up to the event. We looked at a myriad of venues in the area and when we saw the grounds at Che'ne Rouge we fell in love. Inside and out, this place rocks! The place combines a stylish upscale elegance with an ageless country appeal. We couldn’t have made a better choice. The layout includes a small courtyard, a main ball room, a center room, a HUGE area for the all the ladies to dress and shower, a bar (yes, fully stocked bar), a photo fun area, and the absolutely gorgeous center grounds where we ate and congregated. Allison made all the arrangements. G&W Catering’s food was AMAZING. We received many compliments from our guests about how delicious the food was! Sweets by Flea to set up a “desert” table and OMG was that incredible! All the kids stayed basically around this table the entire ceremony. And for the flowers, they were absolutely beautiful. There were flowers hanging in the trees, in bird cages around the venue, on the tables as centerpieces, and many other various places. Overall, our guests had a great time, we had a great time, and all with the convenience of staying in Hiram which is where we live. Thank You Allison! We were thoroughly impressed by every aspect of the Che'ne Rouge. If we had to do it again, we wouldn’t change a thing! Kalyn and Scott

I absolutely loved having my wedding here. The staff is amazing and accommodated me throughout the entire process. The day ran smoothly and the staff made that happen. The ballroom is simply gorgeous which is the entire reason why I decided to get married there. The pricing is reasonable and there is a payment plan. The DJ that comes with the Grand Fare packet was my favorite part. We danced all night. I have gotten non-stop compliments on my wedding and I owe it all to them. Terrika C

This was the most magical day of my life! Allison and the entire staff at Che'ne Rouge as well as ALL of the recommended partner/vendors were amazing and attentive. The day was perfect from arrival to departure. Che'ne Rouge was priced VERY WELL compared to other wedding venues as well. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM to anyone and everyone!!-Lisa T
