Abbie was AMAZING to work with! Sad that our wedding is over, but having it at Leatherwood was amazing and we wouldn't have changed any detail!

Our daughter's wedding was perfect, in spite of any rain, it was such a wonderful day! Abbie did a great job coordinating the ceremony especially with the music since we were unable to rehearse with the music. Everything went smoothly and our dinner catered by Leatherwood was very good. We had many complements on the food! This is a great venue and we hope to come back and stay in the cabin we rented and enjoy those beautiful mountains!
