Even through changing of event coordinators, the communication never failed. Gina was always there to guide and answer any of the questions I had. There is a suggestion for any vendor you may need. I can’t express enough words how breath taking this venue is. The historical home, the the oak trees on the property, to the river bank views, to the pavilion. Everything is so beautiful and there are multiple places to choose from for a backdrop for your ceremony.Sent on 08/19/2019

When we started this wedding planning process we had a few venues in mind. We stopped at The Burroughs Home first and we didnt look any further! After meeting with Christine and her staff and viewing this unbelievably beautiful home we were stunned and fell in love! The detail and care that Christine takes in organizing your wedding and bringing it to life with this beautiful home are unmatched! The home is gorgeous and has the most beautiful, photogenic scenery i have ever seen. We were blown away by every elegant detail this home provides. Christine is a professional, she knows what she is doing and guides you through every little detail with ease. The home is simply breathtaking and we absolutely love being a Burroughs bride and groom. Thank you Christine and staff, you made our dream come true!!Sent on 10/18/2012

I cannot say enough good things about the Burroughs Home. Not only is it a beautiful venue, but the coordinators who work there are very professional and very efficient. All of the preferred vendors were professional as well and were great with communication. But, we really couldn't get over how beautiful the venue was and how easy everything was for us on the day of the event. Getting married here was the best decision we made!Sent on 06/09/2019
