Look No Further To Make Your Wedding Day Magical
The day was meant to be magical and wonderful and all the things dreams are made of, and IT WAS!! The professionalism and "can do" attitude of the McDowall Acres staff was top notch. They were extremely supportive and said on more than on occasion when we were trying to make decisions about the decor, "let's do our best to create the bride's vision", and they set out to do just that. They were hard working, and were problem solvers! When the caterer forgot to send serving spoons with the buffet meal, Elizabeth disappeared for a few minutes and then voila! magically appeared with a half dozen serving spoons. There were several little bumps in the road that were barely noticeable because of their good help. Even down to not having enough greenery to add the the backs of the chairs - Lucy hopped on the golf cart and went foraging around the farm and brought back the perfect greenery solution. You just can't go wrong when you have a team like that making your special day happen!Sent on 10/06/2019

Like family, but better
Absolutely amazing venue and vendors!Sent on 11/24/2020
We booked them in December 2019, and we knew right away this was the perfect vendor for us! Jim and Elizabeth were so kind, warm, and welcoming! They really helped us through the covid lock down and happily soothed my frayed nerves during the whole process. Day of rehearsal came and they were very hands on and helped us with the optics of the barn to make sure that it was picture perfect. We had a crazy wedding day with a bridesmaid running late and am accident on the highway leading to many of our guests getting delayed.
I cannot thank them enough for being so phenomenal and kind. My husband and I joked that it's almost a shame that we can only get married once, otherwise we'd pick them every time!

McDowall made my wedding just perfect! They were a pleasure to work with, very helpful with vendors and just really made us feel comfortable and at ease with the whole process! We made plans for an outdoor ceremony and struggled with the rain the day of! I never felt uncomfortable or not important!
