    The Perfect Venue

    We cannot say enough amazing things about Hawthorne House. It is beautiful, all inclusive and well managed. They were so easy to work with and so helpful on the weeks and months leading up. We used this location for our bridal photos to get ready, ceremony at the chapel, reception and cocktail hour. It included all alcohol needs and all of our photos were used on the grounds! Highly recommend even if it is expensive.

    Our wedding was a DREAM COME TRUE!! Hawthorne House was absolutely gorgeous and our guests raved about it!

    We lucked out and had perfect weather, allowing us to use the porch and lawn which looked beautiful and green in early Sept. The chapel and reception hall are so pretty on their own that they did not need a lot of decor -- we used candle votives and greenery as our center pieces and it took my breath away when I first saw it!

    Not only was the space exceptional, but Adona and her team were organized, friendly and quick to reply to ALL of our crazy questions!

    The bartenders moved fast and kept our guests happy.

    I would highly recommend using this venue, especially if you want to use the outdoor space! Thank you for making our wedding the best day ever!!

I always appreciate Hawthorne's organized style and professionalism. I always here fantastic compliments about Hawthorne House, from my brides that have been married there!

CaraSue Hall, Professional Freelance Makeup and Hair Artist CaraSue Hall, Professional Freelance Makeup and Hair Artist Wedding Hair & Makeup

I am always thrilled when one of my brides chooses Hawthorne House for their wedding. The setting is beautiful, ample parking, easy access. Darla is a joy to work with and is always helping the brides/families with whatever they need. The dressing room is the best that I have ever been in at a wedding venue. As a hair and makeup artist, I need the space, lighting and overall accommadations but don't always have the luxury of having it. At Hawthorne House I have it. Not only is it wonderfully accommodating for me, it is for the wedding parties as well. There is so much space and comfort to be able to get ready. You won't regret having Hawthorne House as your venue on your wedding day.
