Seamless - the best day ever!!!!
We live approximately 5 hours away from this venue...I had never heard of it prior to booking it. I was searching for an experience that would be all inclusive and allow us to just show up, yet still have fun celebrating. I wanted a non-stressful day, a day that I could just enjoy...a day that my family and friends could just spend time with us and enjoy before the wedding as well. We love DIY things; however, I wanted this to be different. We have the best family and friends in the world who would have stayed up all night the night before decorating if we asked them to; however, with the 1812 Hitching Post we didn’t have to!Sent on 09/15/2019
I didn’t see the venue before I booked it, I just booked it by the photos and reviews I was able to find online. Sure there were a few negative reviews that made me a little timid about it, but man am I so glad I didn’t let them stop me! From the very beginning Wendy took time on the phone to answer every question I had, allowed payments to be made which kept it affordable, and she was quick to respond to any text message or email I sent. She prefers email communication so she can keep track of everything leading up to the day.
About a month prior to the wedding she sends a sheet for you to answer questions of what you want and how you want it. They have beautiful decor to select from...most pictured online! We gave her a list of songs (some not so popular) and picked a cake style displayed on their website.
I literally showed up the evening of our wedding. JUST SHOWED UP!!!!! Wendy and her husband are so sweet and accommodating. The home and landscaping are just breathtaking. It is an older home so don’t expect perfection, expect unbelievable history and character.
Our package included the decor for both the ceremony and reception (we only provided a couple flowers and small things), the officiant, DJ, cake, bartender, and food. The decor, perfection. The staff are just the sweetest and so professional! The food...DELICIOUS!!! The DJ, that man kept the party going until the moment we left!!!! The cake, beautiful and so tasty!!! The bartenders, kept the drinks coming and were so respectful of everyone.
If you’re wondering if you should go with this venue, please do! You won’t regret it. I had the most relaxing seamless day...and that would not have been possible without Wendy, her husband and her staff.
Wendy, from the bottom of my heart....thank you. I swear (not just because it was our wedding)....that was the best, most fun wedding I’ve been to in my life. Our guests raved about you guys!

A Magical Fairytale
My Husband and I got married at the 1812 Hitching Post on 11/3/19, and I have nothing but incredible things to say about our experience. The venue itself is beautiful and whimsical - nestled in the countryside. After a few minutes of being on-property during our initial visit, we knew this was where we wanted to host our wedding day. We had a small wedding, 14 people total, but we never once felt like a small fish in a big pond. The venue is incredibly versatile, and has options for both large and small weddings. Wendy was a dream to work with, and was so kind and lovely during the entire process! She was extremely welcoming and warm to both of our families and our friends who attended our wedding, and ensured everything was taken care of so that I could enjoy being on a cloud on the big day vs. being stuck in the details. Patrick, Wendy's Husband, was the officiant for our ceremony - and he conducted everything so beautifully. Our ceremony was heartfelt and emotional, and we're so glad to have had Patrick to guide us through. The 1812 staff were all so kind and sweet, and the DJ was absolutely fantastic. All of our ceremony music went off perfectly, and he played all of our suggestions and kept with the theme for the entire evening. Our friends and family had a fantastic time!
As a professional event planner for my career, it is hard to hand over all of the details - especially on such a personal day. However, I had complete trust and faith in Wendy! She and her team paid attention to every detail, and truly brought the vision of our wedding to life. I couldn't have asked for a better venue, team to work with, or experience overall. It was incredible to have 90% of the details taken care of/included with the venue, which is not something you will find often. I feel so lucky to have found the 1812 Hitching Post for our wedding day, and we will forever fondly remember the incredible memories made there.Sent on 01/24/2020
Incredibly beautiful breath taking wedding venue!!
1812 Hitching Post is a beautiful venue, with gorgeous landscaping and a historical appeal that makes for romantic wedding pictures! The venue offers so many options and flexibility. Owners are a joy to work with and really take note to all the details. I am always thrilled to hear of couples getting married at 1812, knowing it will be an amazing event!
We had the privilege of photographing a late summer wedding at 1812 Hitching Post in 2013. We were impressed with the beauty of the property as well as all the details that were handled for our bride and groom. They were able to enjoy their special day knowing that the staff had everything under control!
