We had a truly exceptional wedding ceremony at the Old South Meeting House. The staff was very helpful and responsive over the planning process and made it very easy, especially since I was planning halfway across the country. There were some staffing changes over our planning process, but the staff made the transition totally seamless. We ended up working with Devon on our wedding day - and she was so great! She made sure the rehearsal went smoothly and was such a positive and calming presence day-of. She was very communicative throughout the day of our wedding and made sure everything went off without a hitch! We loved the natural beauty of the building and that it really didn't need any additional decoration or touches. It was such an amazing space. Since most of our guests were out-of-towners, it was so cool to have it in such a historic site and for them to get to explore it a little. We also appreciated that we could bring an iPad with pre-made playlists to use as our ceremony music. Since it is a museum, we didn't have access to the space until after 5 PM, which abbreviated our wedding timeline a little, but this was absolutely not a problem for us, just thought it would be useful information for other brides. Regardless, we absolutely loved our experience with the OSMH and greatly appreciated being able to have our ceremony in the beautiful space.Sent on 10/16/2018

We had our small wedding reception at the Old South Meeting House and it was beautiful. Even though it's a large space, it felt very intimate with a small group of people. Autumn was very helpful and knowledgeable in getting everything set up for us, and helped the day run smoothly. The venue was exactly what we were looking for, and we were thrilled with the outcome!
