The General's Daughter was the perfect location for our wedding of 59 people! We fell in love with GD during our initial walkthrough. The location is very homey and cozy and it provided us with the intimate atmosphere we were trying to create. The staff was amazing to work with - professional, prompt communication, and always willing to help! They made the whole experience of finding a venue much easier. The site has multiple indoor and outdoor spaces to use and help spread out the different activities. They had a beautiful stone fireplace which became the focal point of our ceremony and we used the other outdoor space for cocktail hour. There is a wine room that we used as our dance floor/dessert area but has been popular as an indoor ceremony location. Another reason we loved GD was that they allowed our dog to be part of the ceremony - a lot of venues don't allow dogs within their premises other than service animals.Sent on 12/28/2017
One thing that made GD the ultimate venue is that it has a fully operational kitchen so no pre-cooked catering food that is reheated was served; everything was hot off the stove and our guests were able to taste the difference! GD/Ramekins was also our caterer and everything was delicious! Our guests have told us that ours is the best wedding food they've ever had and a few have asked me what was the wine served that night as they wanted to buy some for themselves. GD played a huge part in making our wedding the best day ever!

The General's Daughter is an exquisite wedding venue! We had our winter wedding here and it was perfect! The timeless charm of the Victorian house lends a comfortable and elegant atmosphere. The indoor and outdoor areas create interest and variety for the flow of the event. We worked primarily with Susan da Ponte, who was so sweet, accommodating and professional. During the ceremony and reception, the staff was kind, efficient and unobtrusive. We never had to worry about a thing! We love this place!!Sent on 02/20/2014
