We had our daughter's wedding at French's Point in July 2017 but started our relationship with the French's Point staff long before. For the months leading up to the big day, we received excellent resources and assistance from the French's Point staff. All our questions were answered quickly and professionally. On the day before and for the rehearsal, the staff was ready and prepared to address and handle all the details. On the actual wedding day, we were in excellent hands and French's Point served as a perfect venue for the bridal party's getting ready time and for the special afternoon and evening our families and guests enjoyed. From the staff to the beautiful home and grounds, French's Point served as a lovely setting for our daughter's wedding memories.Sent on 08/19/2017

Heaven. Just Heaven.
Our October wedding at French's Point was simply amazing. Back in the planning stages, we had plans to tour six or seven other venues, but we canceled all our other tours after we toured French's Point because we knew we'd just seen something special and that it wouldn't get any better.Sent on 11/07/2018
We were right. Everything about the estate is amazing--the location, the view, the estate house itself. It's warm, welcoming, and elegant. The staff is sweet, encouraging, communicative, and helpful. They provided us with suggestions and inspiration that made our day unique and fun.
If you book the venue, you should also consider booking the adjacent farmhouse for your family and wedding party. It's a quaint, cozy, and adorable place to stay, but it's also incredibly handy to have the wedding party within walking distance of the venue. We were so happy we made the choice to book the farmhouse too!
I can't thank Jessika and Nicole enough; they were amazing, and I get misty just thinking about what a wonderful day they helped us create. I loved everything about it! We even battled a little rain and couldn't get married outside at the gazebo like we planned, but it didn't for one second feel like a compromise to get married in the lovely estate. This place is just heaven!

My husband and I got married here in July, and could not be more thankful we chose French's Point. From the very beginning to end, the owners and staff were exceptionally professional, organized, and available for suggestions, questions, and concerns. Most importantly, they are genuinely kind-hearted people who don't just run a business -- they clearly find joy in serving their clients.Sent on 09/14/2018
The venue itself is exactly as pictured -- views are breathtaking, property is beautifully maintained (by the entire family :) and is overall just... so peaceful.
We rented the both the Farmhouse & Retreat for the weekend and all our guests couldn't stop raving about the accommodations, quality of service, and venue as a whole. We recommend without reservation!
