    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
