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!Sent on 10/17/2019

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.Sent on 10/01/2019

Incredible food, attentive and professional staff, and absolutely gorgeous venue. Cost is super reasonable and you get a lot for your money. Highly, highly recommend for those who want a beautiful, rustic wedding rather than a traditional ball room. venue is gorgeous and the couple who runs it are really fantastic people.Sent on 06/18/2019
