The Grain House @ the OMI was the perfect place for our wedding. a) Service: The service at OMI is UNBELIEVABLE! We first met with our Sales Rep, Lindsay Stewart. She is an angel. She answered every single e-mail and every single question I asked her in a timely manner. She was so incredibly helpful when it came to booking the venue, and in the months after until we were assigned our Maitre D’, John. He was outstanding as well! He made sure that every. single. detail. that we wanted at that wedding went perfectly. He put all the decor around (and we brought a lot) in the right place and in the right way. All day he was around to make sure that myself, my husband, bridal party, and family were fed and taken care of. Multiple guests commented on how superb the service was. b) Food: This was very important to us, as my husband is very passionate about cooking and food. He did not want bland typical wedding food. That is not what you are going to get here! If you have any concerns, go to the Grain House Restaurant before you book your wedding and eat anything on the menu. Everything is cooked to perfection. The food was outstanding and we got a ton of compliments on that as well. We did the mashtini bar and ice cream cookie sandwich station for dessert, both were huge hits! c) Ambiance/decor: The grounds at OMI are gorgeous! There is colonial decor. It is charming, quaint, classy, and simply elegant. We loved the Grain House in particular. They have a beautiful gazebo outside. Because it rained on our day, we actually got married underneath a tented patio, which is also gorgeous. d) Convenience: There is something to be said about having everything all in one place. We did the rehearsal dinner in the Grain Room, the wedding in the Hunt Room, had our guests sleep over in the Inn, and did a breakfast the next morning in the Inn. We did not have to deal with shuttles. So much less planning involved, and everything is top notch!
