Amazing experience from start to finish!
My husband and I got engaged in December 2017 and immediately started searching for wedding venues. We visited Payne-Corley House in early January, and I'll admit we visited only because I wanted to do my due diligence when researching options. However, we absolutely fell in love with the venue once we stepped foot on the property. It's a beautiful and historic old home, and the Payne-Corley House staff is absolutely amazing. We'd had several venue meetings before Payne-Corley, and we ended up choosing them mostly because we met Hope Follmer, their Director of Sales. She was super friendly, very knowledgeable and was willing to work with us in any way possible from the start. We were able to visit the property several times over the course of our year-long engagement, and we had several phone conversations and email conversations with the Payne-Corley House team. They were always available, and they were always 100% accommodating. We were assigned Jen Fulford as our 6-month wedding coordinator, and she worked hand-in-hand with Hope to ensure that everything we needed was taken care of. We were even allowed to visit the property a month before the wedding to complete the southern tradition of burying a bottle of bourbon on the property to bring good weather for the wedding day. The rehearsal was great, and Jen was able to answer any and every question thrown at her. The day of the wedding went off without a hitch - if anything went wrong, Jen made sure I didn't know the difference! She made it easy, and she made everything look absolutely beautiful. Plus, we got married at Christmas time, and they were even so accommodating as to take down several of their property Christmas decorations to allow for our flowers and our decor. I got several compliments on the venue choice, everyone RAVED about the food (I highly suggest the mac and cheese bar) and I am so glad we chose Payne-Corley House for our wedding. You should too - you won't regret it!Sent on 12/30/2018

Historical home with an amazing team.
My Wedding was Mid-November. The team at Payne Corley House is the best. It has been 3 months since my wedding and my guests still talk about how amazing the food was! The food is out of this world amazing. Working with Jen to get everything right was wonderful, the amount of detail to insure nothing fell through the cracks was refreshing. The house and grounds are absolutely breath taking! I had a catholic wedding and they were very accommodating with it!Sent on 02/08/2019
