Mike and I absolutely loved our venue at Hagley! Heather and Dot were wonderful and super sweet people to work with. They also were very professional and a lot of help the day of the wedding. The venue and even the catering staff were awesome. I really have no complaints on anything that they did. It was relaxing and less stress on Mike and I. I think they enjoyed our day as much as we did and we would recommend to all our friends! :)Sent on 11/05/2015

Professional service, beautiful venue
We recently had a smaller wedding (72 guests) at Hagley with the ceremony and reception on-site at the Soda House. The day was perfect from start to finish! I worked closely with Alisha, the events manager, and couldn’t have done it without her and the on-site manager, Bob. The venue/building is beautiful for a wedding less than 100 guests with a great price point. I would absolutely recommend Hagley for your wedding!! Service and location is terrific!Sent on 04/22/2019

The moment we stepped out on the patio we knew we were in love with Hagley. The first thing I have to mention is what an amazing value it is. The Soda House and grounds are absolutely gorgeous. We knew all of our guests would just not be able to stop oohing and ahhing and we were right. We were hearing for days how beautiful it all was. I can't even begin to describe how our wedding photos look like a fairy tale. Heather and Dot were absolutely amazing and professional, so responsive. They were able to answer all of our questions, found my photographer when she got lost, and were available at every turn. The Soda House was a beautiful place to get ready at, the deck out front was perfect for the cocktail hour and most wonderful of all was the spot where we had our reception, down by the river. The staff here really does work seamlessly together and I couldn't be happier to have gotten married here.Sent on 04/24/2018

We love the charm at Hagley Museum. They have a Romantic feel to their venue that is timeless and beautiful. Photographers love Hagley
Having photographed a few weddings at the Hagley Museum now, I can say their staff and venue are first class. The setting and grounds are absolutely beautiful, and the options as a photographer are seemingly endless. The grounds are so large they have a guide to help you around the grounds. The staff at the ceremony and reception sites really are terrific as well. There's great communication from the start, and they make sure we know about everything that's planned for that day.
A beautiful and classy venue for your celebration ... Scott Brown Collars n Cuffs
