Highgate is beautiful!

We had our wedding at Highgate 06/29/24 and were so happy with the venue! The venue has a vintage charm with modern amenities, and stunning gardens! Tyler and Abigail were great to work with, and responded quickly to any questions. I highly recommend Highgate!

Great experience!

An excellent experience from beginning to end. Tyler put us at ease from the moment we walked in for a tour. It became clear right away that we couldn't possibly have our wedding anywhere else. Highgate is a very special place. They made a stressful process easy and fun. Our guests loved this venue as well.
