Whatever it takes
We planned our wedding with rural hill over the course of 9 months. They were so friendly and wanted to know everything we had in mind for our wedding. They are so kind and did everything they could to make our day special. We had to change our ceremony site at the last minute and the staff were very accommodating. The property is so beautiful. We had a simple and intimate ceremony and used the venue on the property for a dinner. Everything provided directly by the venue was amazing and we really feel like we got fantastic service and it fit our budget well.Sent on 02/10/2020

Venue was perfect! Staff was excellent! We had rain and had to make last minute changes that morning with the wedding starting at 2pm. Staff quickly and easily worked with the changes to make everything run smooth. I HIGHLY recommend this venue!Sent on 07/19/2015
Gorgeous venue for rustic weddings, with a nice touch of elegance.
Rural Hill is a great location in Huntersville that is full of charm and has such a peaceful "rural" setting. Lauren is amazing to work with and she is always so pleasant. The venue is very open and lots of options there. They have some great areas for photography so you won't be disappointed.
The management team at Historic Rural Hills is top notch. Lauren is very easy to work with, is patient and is sincerely kind. It is wonderful to work in a venue that is very well taken care of and they show a genuine concern for their clients special event. I love the kitchen area at Rural Hills. For me it met our needs as a caterer coming in to hold and serve our clients ,menu selections for their event. I have worked in many Venues and knowing I would go back to Rural Hills eases my mind. It is a gorgeous place and I myself would love to hold a private event there one day. It is so important that vendors work well together in a venue. At Rural Hills they are just as professional and kind to us as they were to their clients and I thank them for that! Especially Lauren! I look forward to working with you all again soon! Keep doing what you are doing! All my best, Chef Tara
