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 DixonsSent on 12/12/2016
