    Absolutely perfect!

    255 Milledge was the perfect place for our wedding! I fell in love with it the moment we arrived. The house is beautiful and the garden stunning. It’s even more beautiful now than when I booked it last year- the wall paper and light fixtures have been updated and are gorgeous! Kim Moss and her staff made the whole process a dream- every detail reflected the picture I had of how I wanted our big day to be. I loved everything about having my wedding here and would 100% recommend 255 to anyone looking for a romantic garden wedding venue- it is perfect!

    Our Son’s Rehearsal Dinner

    We had our son’s rehearsal dinner at 255 Milledge Hardeman-Sams. This venue is absolutely beautiful! The house and gardens are amazing. We were able to have our dinner outback in the gardens. Kim did a wonderful job at planning the layout for our event. Kim and Bonnie were always available anytime we had questions. We had great weather and a beautiful evening outside surrounded by the beautiful gardens. I promise you will love Kim and Bonnie! You will never regret having a beautiful place to invite your guest to along with the staff at 255 Milledge Hardeman-Sams Estate.
