    So lucky to have found Harding's!

    We had an amazing wedding at Harding's. After our original venue canceled on us with 3 months to go until our wedding, we stumbled across Harding's and they totally saved our day. Jill, Ken, and the whole Harding's team were a pleasure to work with and so organized. They helped us figure out the right plan for our party size, walked us through everything (anticipating questions we didn't even think to ask), and helped coordinate with vendors to make sure everything was seamless before and on the day of the wedding. The space is so unique and charming - it didn't need much to look magical on our wedding day, and there was enough space for a big dance floor and photobooth. Not only that, but the food and drinks were OUTSTANDING - our guests were raving about how good everything was that night, and we still get compliments. As an added plus, they worked with us to customize a menu without meat. We are so happy to have discovered Harding's, and we had the best wedding we could have imagined!

    The perfect touch

    There is no way I can describe how incredible Jill and Ken are. What an important part they played, and how well they played it. From the moment I had my first phone call with Jill, to the moment she said good night that Saturday evening, I wouldn't have worked with anyone else! The venue is sensational! The set up is perfect. The location is just right. The quality of the food superb. My guests are still talking about it and many have gone back for dinner already. :) I was a bride planing a wedding in NYC from LA and I really dont think that I could have done it without Jill. From all of her suggestions, on set up, timing and vendors to use for flowers, cake, music, etc... Its was so seamless. I had 80 guests, with a huge dance floor, room for a photo booth and a two piece acoustic band, and plenty of seats (had a buffet style set up) - this place was Simply The Best!

    Top notch Food, Service, overall experience!

    Can't say enough good things about Harding's. From day one of our wedding planning Jill and Ken were not only professional but personable as well. During the planning Jill was organized and responsive and made us feel assured every step of the way. The day of our wedding was absolutely perfect. The food and drinks were incredible! We received so many compliments on how good the food was. The staff was also top notch. It was also great to see them smile and dance along through service. They even asked the kitchen to prepare a plate of fries for a few hungry kids who were not interested in the raw bar. Seriously top notch crew. I really do not have a single negative thing to say about Harding's. My husband and I had the best night.
