We are all very happy with our special event at Hancock Shaker Village. From the very first visit to the site and meeting with coordinator Amy Chin to the smiles at the end of the wedding dancing, everything was just wonderful. There was always a "can do", "of course" and "sure" attitude to everything we asked for. The site was beautiful and maintained exquisitely. The entire staff was friendly, flexible and helpful. They even managed to give us good weather and flowers blooming in the gardens. The tent was more than spacious; the exclusive caterer provided everything we requested and it was yummy. We are all still smiling and very happy with the memories that were created at Hancock Shaker Village the night. We thank everyone there.

Hancock Shaker Village is beautiful and Amy Chin is amazing! She helped us work out all the details and made everything so easy and stress-free. Our wedding was affordable, beautiful, and unique thanks to HSV. I cannot say enough, I highly recommend it!

Hancock Shaker Village is one of my favorite venues. Not just because it is stunning and offers endless photographic options but because of the staff too. The staff were always in tune with what the couple needed and their guests as well. HSV has it all. The beautiful venue, lots of options, super kind and accommodating staff and history. Love it!! Can't wait to photograph another wedding there in the near future.
