Testimonials from the Bradford Estate
From our initial tasting through all of our planning until we walked out of the door when our day was ending, Corey and his staff were magnificent. On September 29, 2012, we had the wedding of our dreams. We couldn’t be more pleased with our decision to have our wedding reception at the Bradford Estate. Corey was always there to support and encourage us with the many decisions that had to be made. No request by us was ignored. Our reception was more than we imagined with Corey and his staff taking care of us and each and every guest. When we arrived, the landscaping was a stunning backdrop to all our photos. As we entered, we felt like we were in a fairy tale. The service was outstanding and the food plentiful and superb. We have received so much positive feedback from our guests about the amazing service they were given throughout the whole reception. Everyone loved the food, and said they couldn't believe how beautiful everything turned out. We were always made to feel so special throughout the whole process of planning and throughout the reception. Thank you, Corey, for all your efforts. We will definitely recommend the Bradford Estate as an excellent venue for any event!

We got married at the Bradford Estate on Friday 9/28/12. Corey and all the staff at the Bradford Estate were absolutely wonderful throughout my wedding planning and on the big day. We were always made to feel that our event was special and important. The wedding day went so smoothly. I cannot thank the staff at the Bradford Estate enough. The food was delicious and abundant! On the day of the wedding, Corey coordinated everything with the DJ, the photographer, videographer, photobooth, and cocktail hour musicians. I didn't have to worry about a thing on my wedding day except for me and my new husband. We had an amazing time and it was the best day of our lives. Our guests keep telling us that the food and the party was amazing. Looking back at our wedding day, I would no doubt choose the Bradford Estate all over again. I have nothing but positive things to say about the Bradford Estate. The recent decor updates made all the difference, too. The windows in the ballroom are so beautiful and make the room so open to the outdoors. The new bar, new carpet, table settings, floral arrangements, elegant chairs, just everything was beautiful. We also loved how during cocktail hour guests could go outside on a covered patio and enjoy the beautifully landscaped view. The location was even great. Our church was about 25 minutes away from the Bradford Estate but it was so easily accessible off of I-295 that there were no issues with the distance or directions for our guests. Everything was absolutely amazing!! Thank you thank you thank you, Corey and all the staff who made our day so wonderful! Looking back, I will have nothing but amazing beautiful memories.

Dear Mr. Hrubash,
We just want to thank you again for the superior service that you rendered for our daughter's wedding party last September 8, 2012.
The party was a success because you and your staff had that attention and care for every detail that needed to be addressed. It was certainly not a surprise that everything went well since from the very beginning and throughout the entire planning process, you handled our portfolio with professionalism. We will not hesitate to recommend The Bradford Estates and your excellent service to all our friends and relatives. We wish you more success in your future endeavors. Good job. And good luck.

We had our beautiful ceremony and reception on August 11, 2012 at the Bradford Estate. We couldn't have chosen a better venue, and better people to work with. Corey was very helpful and professional from the first moment we met him. Corey was very helpful, always available whenever we had questions. When our wedding finally approached, the Bradford staff went out of their way to make sure that we were comfortable even when the rain threatened to fall. Everything turned out beautiful and we got our fairy tale outdoor garden wedding. The food was delicious; our guests couldn't have been happier, with the quantity and quality of the food. Thanks Corey and your staff!
Lots of love,
Eunice & Silas Wandera
My husband and I were extremely satisfied with our experience at The Bradford Estate. Corey could not have been more patient, informative, helpful, and kind. We knew that he cared about our day and making it all that we wanted it to be. As a bride, I frequently emailed Corey with questions and thoughts and he always responded promptly. The day of the wedding from the moment we walked in we were taken care of. The staff did an exceptional job setting up the tables, setting out place cards, our guest book, pictures, etc. Everything came together SO well! We were treated like Kings. The food was OUTSTANDING!! We were actually asked during cocktail hour if that was dinner. There was more than enough DELICIOUS food and the staff couldn't have been nicer. I was overwhelmed by the joy and pleasure the staff had for me and my husband. We were so happy throughout the day and we felt that they were so happy for us which made the experience even better. From top to bottom the Bradford is gorgeous and many of our guests described it as a "gem". Many of our guests said they hoped to either have their wedding their one day or would highly recommend it to someone on a venue search. When my husband and I look back on our wedding day we are THRILLED that we chose The Bradford Estate.

My husband and I were extremely pleased with the experience we had at the Bradford Estate. We booked with Corey over a year before the date of our wedding. He was wonderful to work with, especially anytime I had a question or needed advice. There are two things that I would like to bring attention to that stood out to both my husband and I. First, we have 3 daughters who were in the wedding, one of which is only four years old. The staff was absolutely wonderful with all three of our daughters. Our youngest fell asleep half way through the night and the staff was very helpful offering anything to help with her. Corey, the assistant personally helping me was especially wonderful!! Anytime I needed anything she was available!! The second thing I would like to mention is how patient and wonderful Corey and the staff were about us making a last minute decision to move our wedding inside. Every bride doesn't want to see this happen on her wedding day, especially when the outside was setup so beautifully, unfortunately 15 minutes to the start of our ceremony the rain came. My husband and I wanted to wait until the last possible second we could to make our decision and thankfully Corey was wonderful about it. The staff was very efficient and the room was just as beautiful, especially with the sun returning to shine halfway through our ceremony. Overall, I wouldn't have wanted our day to any different. My guest all had a wonderful experience and continued for weeks to talk about how great our wedding was!!

Jim and I wanted to pass along the compliments that we've received from the guests at our May 6th garden wedding. Our guests were very impressed with everything from the outdoor ceremony area to the dinner reception The weather could not have been more perfect....sunny and mild. The gazebo looked enchanting with the flowered garland draped over the entry. It was an exquisite backdrop for our photographs.
After the ceremony, our guests were ushered into the newly renovated Crystal Ballroom. The chandeliers and art work pieces were truly magnificent. The table settings sparkled with crystal and china. Although our guests were impressed by the decor, it was the selection of hors d'oeuvres and dinner entrees that garnered the most compliments. Everything from puff pastries to clams casino and bacon wrapped scallops....our guests were amazed at the variety. Each of the waiters and waitresses were professional and courteous seeing to every need and request. Dinner was delectable....absolutely fabulous!! (My mostly Italian family raved about the food, a sure sign that everything was A+.) The bartender mixed cocktail drinks with expertise. Thank you, too, for accommodating the DJ that we had hired.
Aside from the ceremony and the dinner, Jim and I were told that you and the staff were truly outstanding. We heartily agree! You and Cori took care of each minute detail allowing Jim and I to simply relax and enjoy our special day. Nothing that we asked was too much trouble. Even though your vacation somewhat coincided with our wedding date, you saw to it that every possible request, concern and detail was covered. We were confident that our day would be perfect....and it surely was.
Jim and I can't thank you or Cori enough for all of the hard work you put into making our day very special. We will absolutely recommend the Bradford Estate to all of our friends and relatives.
Keep up the fantastic job and thank you, thank you, thank you!!

On Saturday, November 19, 2011 my wedding reception was held at the Bradford Estate. Words cannot express how satisfied the entire wedding party and guests were with the services provided by The Bradford Estate. The management and staff were absolutely awesome. From the moment our party entered The Bradford we were met my management and offered cheese and fruit trays and refreshments. From that moment on we felt as though we were the most important persons in the venue. Mr. Corey Hrubash and Ms.Cori McGrath both were excellent, excellent, excellent. The staff were seen yet invisible and equally as good. The decor, food, bar everything exhibited just a very superior quality service.
Our wedding was flawless and topped off by this beautiful experience at The Bradford makes this day an experience that will forever make our marriage special. I am the Groom and my Bride was just beaming at how beautiful our day had been. I do understand that this is your profession but if this was your normal level of service all I can say is, "MY MY MY".
Thank you all so much.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of your hard work and effort to give us the wedding reception of our dream! Your impeccable attention to detail paid off with an elegant and enjoyable evening that our family and friends raved about! The staff was professional, courteous, and highly capable. It was clear that everyone at the Bradford took great pride in every detail of our special day, which went off without a hitch. From the first time we met, you too such a personal interest that we felt as if we were your only clients. Your responsiveness and willingness to accommodate our special requests took all of the stress out of the planning process. We will definitely be recommending the Bradford to all of our friends and we can't wait to come back for future events of our own!
Thank you again!!
Love, Yardley & Dave Matlack
I know this letter is long overdue, but the life of a caterer is as hectic as they come. I just wanted to say "thank you" again for such a wonderful wedding ceremony and reception. Everything was absolutely perfect!
With the holidays just passing, we were with all of our family that we still raving about the GREAT TIME they had at the wedding. Family and friends alike were impressed with the quality and quantity of food, service from the server and bartenders (most of our guest still name their server) and the beauty and elegance of the hall. It feel like just yesterday was the wedding as everyone keeps talking about what a great time and wonderful experience was had by all.
I could not ask for anything more for our wedding day. I had a blast from start to finish and wouldn't to change anything! Fred and I have never been happier than our wedding day and you, Cheryl and the rest of the staff were a big part of the day.
A special "thank you" to you for all of your accommodations with all of my special request that really made my day feel different from all of the wedding that I work every weekend. I really felt like the bride and NOT the caterer, which is usually difficult for me to let go of!
Family, friends and of course Fred and I would recommend the Bradford to anyone who is looking have the best night of their life! Our wedding day would not have been complete without you!

To Whom It May Concern,
I just wanted to send you a thank you for the wonderful time me and my guests had at the Bradford Estate this past Friday night. It was an evening no one will forget. Working with Corey Hrubash was an absolute pleasure. He is the consummate professional. Pleasant, reliable and always helpful! I am going to miss working with him. While putting this event together Corey made sure I had everything I needed and if I was stressed he was there to lend me support. He made the evening even more successful by being there and helping me out with whatever I needed. The Bradford Estates is beautiful and many of my friends were very impressed with the layout and the decor. I am sure that a few of them will be making plans for an event of their own at Bradford Estate. Thank you again. It was a wonderful event and we have you and your staff to thank.

We just wanted to thank you for everything you did to make our wedding night so amazing. It truly was the night of a lifetime! Everyone was amazed at all that The Bradford Estate had to offer, from the food to the beautifully landscaped grounds. We have not heard from a single person that did not have an awesome time. We especially, had a great time dancing and enjoying our big day! You and the rest of the staff did a great job making everything look so wonderful and allowing us to just enjoy everything. We just saw some of the wedding pictures last night, there are some amazing ones with the Bradford in the background. We will be sure to send along copies for you.

To Whom It May Concern,
My husband and I had our wedding reception at The Bradford Estate in May 2011. I could not have been more pleased with our choice of location. Corey Hrubash and his team did a truly amazing job. As an Event Manager myself for Marriott Hotels, I know that I have high standards. Not only were my expectations met, but they were far exceeded. I worried about absolutely nothing that evening. Everything ran smoothly and as planned. The biggest hit was the food! I can not tell you how many of our guests raved about the food, both the quantity and the quality. You will be faced with many choices when planning your wedding. One choice that should be easy is to have your reception at The Bradford Estate. You will not be disappointed!

The Bradford Estate,
My family & friends had a tremendous time at my daughter Rachel’s wedding last Saturday. Both the ceremony & reception were run and coordinated like a well oiled machine. I cannot tell you how many people came up to my wife or I, and told us how great that the weeding was run. I’ve been to over 200 weddings as a photographer, and I must say that my daughter’s wedding was as good as any that I have been to. There were no problems at all. No bumps in the road just smooth sailing. I have been to some “klunkers” but the good weddings are the ones that you never forget. There were no complaints. People told me that the food was great and plentiful. From the cocktail hour thru dessert. The mashed potato bar was the family’s favorite. The dining room sparkled. The set-up was very very impressive. My brother Jack, who was a guest, remarket that of the 1,000 or so weddings that he has photographed, Rachel & Dan’s wedding was one of the Top 5 classiest & well run wedding that he has ever seen.

To Whom It May Concern,
I am writing to you to thank you for hosting the Hainesport School Parent Teach Organization Mardi Gras fundraising event held at your facility. Our school PTO worked tirelessly to plan the event, and your facility truly made it grand. We are so glad to be able to utilize such a wonderful venue, and keep our business here in town. No detail was left out! The room was set up so nicely; it was clean and the table linens looked great. The appetizers were generous and the food buffet was excellent. I would also like to complement you on your professional wait-staff and bar tenders. Every single person we dealt with was so kind. We had a wonderful time. Thank you very much for your time and all of the consideration you gave to our school PTO. We look forward to working with you and your representatives in the future. Continuing this strong partnership with our school and such a valued member of our Hainesport business community is meaningful to us.
Corey, Chef, Peggy & all the staff,
Our sincerest thanks to everyone at the Bradford for their hard work to make our wedding perfect. Our wedding guests had nothing but complements for chef’s delicious food and the willingness of the staff to meet everyone’s needs. The place looked beautiful and Corey and Peggy kept everything moving along smoothly without a hitch. We would highly recommend the Bradford to anyone for any special occasion. Thanks again for all you did to make our wedding perfect!! w

Dear Bradford Estate,
My family and I attended Josh and Jen Thompson’s wedding at your establishment last Friday night. I felt I had to write and tell you about the EXCEPTIONAL service your employees provided. We felt so welcomed and were treated like royalty!! The personal attention that we were extended made the wedding a HUGE success! We honestly felt that our servers, bartenders truly enjoyed their jobs and truly enjoyed having us there. What an incredible change form the “ordinary!” The food was FANTASTIC!! From the passed appetizers to the buffet, everything was spot on! Thank you for making the night truly remarkable! We will recommend your establishment without hesitation!
To the Bradford Estate Staff,
Thank you for all your hard work and excellent service for our wedding ceremony and reception on Saturday August 9, 2008. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves and could not stop raving to us about the wonderful food and amazing service. Thanks for making our special day perfect!
Love, Diane & Patrick Walke
