Great venue with beautiful outdoor spaces
We toured this venue in March 2019 for our December 2020 wedding. It has a great vintage feel with beautiful grounds for photo ops. If beautiful wedding photos are on your must have list, this is a great venue. The indoor space was very nice and would have accommodated 150 guest list just fine. We ultimately chose a different venue just because it didn't match the vibe we were wanting for our wedding. Definitely consider it if you are looking for a beautiful outdoor venue with a vintage feel.Sent on 04/05/2019

The most amazing venue
This is the first and last venue we toured. We fell in love with the grounds and booked immediately. Samantha is also the best. She took a huge weight off our shoulders on the big day and even with our hiccups that day, everything was transitioned smoothly and it was the best day of our lives. She was so easy to get a hold of and answered every question we had. We also had the most amazing food through gray gables as well. Everyone couldn’t stop raving about all of it! We were blown away by every aspect and highly recommend everything about gray gables!Sent on 09/06/2019

Jennifer made everything run so smoothly and was open to being flexible with our needs. She was ready with tips and ideas to help us when we were at a loss. She was attentive, the venue itself was gorgeous and the wait staff and in-house catering was the talk of the town. I am so happy that we chose this as our venue and couldn't imagine having done it anywhere else.Sent on 08/24/2019
Fairy Tale Weddings. That's how it feels each time I arrive to officiate a wedding at Gray Gables. The gardens are magical. The ballroom is elegant. The separate houses for the bridal party to prepare in are roomy and quaint. This venue offers everything and is hosted by wonderful people to see to every detail of your wedding day.
Love this venue -- so many great areas for getting ready, ceremony, reception activities, from small intimate celebrations to huge parties. Amazingly friendly, considerate, and competent staff. Highly recommended.
