Just a dream
Words can’t describe how amazing this venue is!
Pearl S. Buck was the 3rd venue that we toured. The instant we stepped out of the car we could feel the magic. The grounds are stunning and beautifully maintained by volunteers. The stone house is something to be admired. The tent, with it’s beautiful fabric drapery, was the perfect place for an outside/inside wedding. It was comfortable and laid back but also elegant and sophisticated. When we left the tour, we knew Pearl S. Buck Estate was where we would be married.
Every single person who attended our wedding was in awe of the venue. We had numerous people asking us where we found it. I think people remarked on the beauty of the venue more than me or my wedding dress! Haha! Many remarked that they had never been to a venue like Pearl S Buck before and loved it!
This review would not be complete if I did not mention the coordinating staff at Pearl S. Buck. Kate, Rachel, and Natalie were exceptional in every way possible. When one of the groomsmen popped a button on the suit, Kate was right there sewing it back on. When the photographers pulled us away for pictures during cocktail hour, Rachel and Natalie brought the appetizers and drinks to us without our asking and made sure we had whatever we wanted or needed the rest of the night. There was not a single moment when I felt like I was dealing with all of the coordination on my own. Kate was in contact with me for days prior and eased my mind when I was feeling stressed. She handled every aspect of the day and executed our wishes flawlessly. Without this team, I would have lost my mind!
You absolutely cannot go wrong by booking this venue. I’d do it again a thousand times!
