    Lovely, Lovely, Lovely evening at Rucker Place

    This lovely mansion nestled on a street near downtown (with plenty of parking for guests) was the picturesque setting for a wonderful rehearsal dinner. Gail, the owner, and Paula, the event planner, were so helpful during all of the planning and the actual event. The vendors they work with at Rucker Place are top notch (Kellie at Savoie Catering and Laure at LSL Event Design).
    Our guests thanked us over and over for the experience! We recommend Rucker Place for any event but especially weddings!

    Historic Rucker Place is the perfect venue!

    You will love everything about Historic Rucker Place!! We had a beautiful Rehearsal Dinner there and everything was perfect! We had appetizers in the garden with the beautiful twinkling lights and dinner upstairs with a city view. The food was delicious - from appetizers to dessert! Paula at Rucker was so easy to work with ...the servers for dinner was very accommodating. I would recommend to anyone!
