    Best Day Ever!

    Thank you SAHC for making our wedding day so incredible. A HUGE thank you to Kirin Battaglia, who was the glue keeping it (and me) together! She helped coordinate and arrange so much (flowers, food, rentals) in advance and on the day of the wedding, she was an absolute ROCKSTAR. She helped my husband and I, as well as our 48 closest friends and family, ensure that everything moved smoothly and that we could have the best day ever. The venue was gorgeous and special, the food was delicious, flowers were magical, and everything about our day was just perfect. Thank you all so much!

    Warmly,
    Kirin

    Best Day Ever

    Oh wow I don’t think I have enough words to talk about how much I loved this place. The views made my heart sing. Kirin and Amanda with black orchid events were so helpful and kind and made this process very easy (and weddings aren’t easy at all!) Booking my wedding here was the best decision I could have made. The farmhouse on the property was beautiful and so cozy and comfortable it was the perfect place to relax when the event was over.

    Flexible, customizable and beautiful

    Kirin and the SAHC were wonderful. When we found out that the money for the event would go towards conservation, we were sold- just hoping the price would fit our budget. Even through lengthy email chains of questions and clarifications, Kirin was patient and flexible. We were able to customize a package to fit to our small, short morning wedding, taking the elopement package of 2 hours and adding on 2 additional hours. The number of additional guests outside the range for elopements was customizable as well. Two days before the wedding, we did a walk though and noted a few needed changes which were all addressed. The venue is beautiful with the gardens, view and the 200 year old tree. It is well maintained and with all of the amenities we needed, including chairs, tables, food truck hookup and some decorations. The SAHC was perfect for us in every way, highly recommend!
