    best experience ever!

    Please, please, please check venue out! Me and my husband got married on October 3, 2020. We almost missed out on this amazing place as the pictures do not do it justice even in the slightest bit. We decided on a whim to go and check Cumberland Estate out but already had another venue on hold. When we went to look at it we knew that this was where we wanted our wedding. You truly don't know how beautiful this place is until you go to look at it. It honestly was the best decision we ever made and made our wedding one to talk about. McKenzie was so accommodating and amazing! She made us feel just like family as did everyone working there did. We visited about 3 times and every single time we fell in love with it more and more. I know how cheesy that sounds but it truly applies to this amazing hidden gem. The price was totally agreeable for what you get! They made us so comfortable and helped so much! The day before our wedding, the groom and groomsman along with our dads had purchased the skeet shooting and they had so much fun. We got to relax and enjoy our time there. It also has airbnb's for 3 other properties, one of which we used for our rehearsal dinner the night before and my parents stayed in for the weekend. I did not have any nerves about my wedding on the day before or the day after. We had been telling our family and friends for MONTHS about this place and I still don't think that they were prepared for how amazing it was. We are known for being the couple like like being extra and over the top and this venue succeeded in making that happen without us having to put in any effort. The best part is you get to make your wedding completely your own. We got to choose any location on the property. We decided to have everyone come up the big driveway at the front of the house then have our wedding behind the house under the magnolias so that everyone could see all around the house. We had the cocktail time is the rose garden the reception tent beside that. I loved having the option to make it how we wanted it. McKenzie worked amazingly with my wedding coordinator and all of my vendors. I truly cannot recommend this place enough or say enough nice things about it. It was the wedding of our dreams and was an amazing weekend there. I wouldn't change our wedding or the venue for anything.

    Cumberland Estate's reply:

    Oh my gosh, Rachel! I must have read this 100 times!! But I guess it’s finally time to publicize my total appreciation for you and Josh…and your wedding party…and your everything! Y’all’s wedding was a total reflection of how amazing you two are.

    Thank you for your continued support and lasting friendship. I’m so lucky to have a couple like y’all and look forward to the next of many more visits :)
