STUNNING views!! My husband and I hosted our wedding ceremony and reception at Hopsewee Plantation in September 2017 and it was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! We could not have made a better decision to host our wedding at this location. Thew views were unreal, the weather was absolutely perfect, and the owners and staff were wonderful! Raejean was so kind and accommodating. She made sure everything I wanted/needed was perfect. The food was SO delicious and she will make ANY menu you have in mind. All of my guests couldn't stop talking about how beautiful the venue was. If you are looking for a location to host your wedding, look no further! You must book here, I promise you will not regret it!

We hosted our bridal luncheon, rehearsal dinner, and Raejean catered our wedding at another location. Everything was absolutely delicious! She worked with us from day one to make a menu that was both within our vision and our budget. The food was delicious and my only regret is not eating enough of it at the wedding :) The venue is absolutely stunning. The large oaks with Spanish moss hanging down makes for the most romantic view ever! Whether you are looking to host a small event or a wedding, Hopsewee has so much to offer. Thanks so much to Raejean and the rest of the staff for helping us put on the wedding of our dreams! Love, The Dixons
