More than just a typical Venue!
PERFECT WEDDING! From the time we chose to have our wedding at the Pierce house until Our wedding day, we couldn’t have been happier with Our choice! The beautiful house, the lush and romantic grounds, the beautiful tent set over the patio (not on grass ....which was awesome) , the porch for cocktail hour, and with out a doubt, our personal favorites..... The Trees!!! Weeping Willows and Shady Oaks gave us the perfect backdrops for so many amazing pictures! Victoria Otis was beyond wonderful to work with and made us feel so special! Her attention to detail is flawless and she truly cared about making our day everything we wanted it to be! Five stars isn’t enough!!Sent on 10/14/2019

I had my wedding at the Pierce House in July. This venue is absolutely gorgeous. Both the house and the grounds (30 acres I believe) give you endless options for your event. When I toured it they told me that they wanted it to feel like it was our house for the day. You are able to decorate and use the property as you’d like. I also really appreciated that we didn’t have to pick from a set list of vendors (they have recommendations but you have complete flexibility). The tent out front is also very reasonably priced and easy to rent. Everyone was very responsive and informative. We were able to have the exact wedding that we wanted here, and without spending nearly as much as we would have at other venues. I absolutely recommend it!Sent on 07/26/2019

We had a beautiful, custom wedding thanks to the Pierce House!
My partner and I got married here October 6, 2018 and it was STUNNING! Nancy was so easy to work with and let us add our own touches to the house to make the evening even more sentimental. We put up family pictures all over the house. We looked at a lot of venues before selecting the Pierce House. The other venues that were even close to the beauty of the Pierce House all had in house caterers or 2 that you could choose from and were incredibly overpriced. The Pierce House lets you customize your event. The only tricky part for us was picking a caterer who met the insurance requirements for the Pierce House, but that turned out to be a blessing in disguise because we ended up with a caterer from their recommended list who saved our wedding (rental disaster) on more than one occasion. Guests went on and on about how beautiful everything was! We highly recommend the Pierce House!Sent on 10/26/2018
