    So happy to find Allison

    Where do I begin? Our wedding was originally scheduled on the beach and with being out of state we did not have a back up plan. The day before the wedding we were told there was no way to have it outside… well 5 hours later we end up on the phone with Allison and found the GORGEOUS 108 BUDLEIGH. Allison was a breath of fresh air, she even came into town to meet us and show us around. We have only positive things to say about her hospitality and being able to help us in such a crunch. She is passionate and knowledgeable, I feel like I’ve known her for years. The event building is perfect, there is a nice kitchen, bridal and groom suites, upstairs bar, and space for plenty of people. Thank you Allison for making sure our big day was more than perfect!

    Beautiful Venue

    We stumbled on the 108 Budleigh while perusing through venues online and immediately fell in love with it. Working with Allison was easy and straightforward which was necessary since we were planning our wedding sight unseen from across the country. Allison was great with allowing our photographer in to check out the venue to look at lighting beforehand and with making sure that we had everything we needed. We chose to pay to get in a day early and were happy that we did because it was extremely relaxed. The space is bright and open with separate spaces that all blended together in a way that made it easy to use for a ceremony and reception. We loved the simple elegance of the 108 Budleigh and were extremely happy with the wedding!
