I cannot say put into words how absolutely wonderful our experience was with John & the rest of the Lee-Fendall House team. This was the first (and only) venue we toured; once we saw how beautiful the house and gardens were, we knew that this was where we wanted to celebrate our special day.Sent on 10/15/2019
John was incredible to work with. He was quick with responses, extremely helpful with recommendations, and was there on the day-of to make sure everything went smoothly. We had a snafu with permitting leading up to the event, but John was extremely helpful in getting everything smoothed over - it was a HUGE weight off our shoulders.
The venue itself is indescribably beautiful, and there is so much history to explore. We didn't have to worry about entertainment during cocktail hour, as our guests were free to roam the house. The gardens and grounds were immaculate; the team takes special pride in the landscaping, as we witnessed during the multiple visits we took leading up to our event and on our wedding day itself. The two trees in the garden provided the perfect backdrop for our ceremony... there was no need for any decorations.
As someone who is a professional event planner, I really cannot recommend this venue enough!

The magical garden wedding I had dreamed of!
I can NOT say enough about the Lee Fendall House, and its director John. The venue was magical, and he was so helpful from start to finish. Extremely professional, responsive, went above and beyond and just an overall good guy. We had the most perfect day, and would recommend this venue to anyone with historical interests and visions of getting married in a natural, garden space!Sent on 10/17/2018

My husband and I had our ceremony in the backyard at the Lee-Fendall House Museum and Garden. It was an absolutely lovely setting, and the big trees in the yard provided some much-needed shade.Sent on 07/06/2018
We had a great experience working with the folks at Lee-Fendall. John was very helpful, flexible, and responsive to our needs. We cannot thank him and the rest of his team enough.
