My daughter had her dream wedding at Compass Point November 2018. The venue, food, floors and staff were truly amazing! Thanks to Erin, Amy and Mindy for a beautiful stress free wedding. They truly made this her happiest night of her life.

The most beautiful venue
A week later and my guests still haven't stopped talking about how beautiful the venue was, how it was very organized, how perfectly gorgeous my flowers were, how delicious the food was (especially catfish and meat pies). I recommend brides stay in a cottage the night before, it makes getting ready and making sure you have everything go very smoothly.

We absolutely loved our experience with Compass Point! From day one, Erin and her team went above and beyond to accommodate all of our requests/wedding details. They were so fun and flexible to work with -- it made the planning process easy and enjoyable!! Despite a rainy wedding day, Erin made sure every single detail was still in place! The venue and property are historic and beautiful. We wanted a romantic vintage feel for our day and Compass Point captured that beautifully. Our photos are stunning and ethereal. Erin also handled our flowers! She did an amazing job with each arrangement and worked with me one on one to make sure to capture the romantic vintage look I was going for! We are so appreciative for everything!! Amazing experience!!
