    We are very glad we chose Hockessin Memorial Hall for our reception venue. Sarah was phenomenal, and catered to our every need. Our theme was a little less traditional (based on a board game), and we had some quirky requests-- such as rolling dice to announce tables for dinner. Sarah worked hard to ensure that we were able to incorporate all of our ideas and that the evening ran smoothly. She was very responsive and helped our event go off without a hitch. They also have several packages to choose from and you can really design your event to fit your price and needs. It was a plus that the inside of the venue is already so nice that you do not have to do a lot of decorations to make it feel classy. We would definitely recommend Hockessin-- great value and great service!

    Thanks Beth for all the kind words you shared with everyone. We loved having your and Travis' wedding here with us!

    There aren't enough positive words we can say about Sarah. From the time we booked 2 years ago all the way through the end of our reception she had made the process extremely easy. She answered every question we had and even made suggestions that we used. We can't thank the staff at Hockessin enough for everything they did to make our reception smooth and flawless.

    Hockessin Memorial Hall's reply:

    Thanks for the kind words Joanna. We're so glad we could make things easier for you along the way. Congrats to you and Dan again! --Sarah
