Magnificent weekend wedding!
I was recently married at the Preston Woodall House and I had an absolutely amazing, out of this world, experience. Chef Jon prepared delectable food, the staff displayed astounding service, and Kaitlyn and Joel (while maintaining total professionalism) made the entire planning process so fun, enjoyable, and relaxed. I cannot sing all of their praises enough. We also loved all of the accommodations that are offered, as it made it very easy and convenient to have everyone right there together, and the breakfast that followed each morning. Should I need a venue for any event in the future, I will undoubtedly make a beeline straight back to the Preston Woodall House! Highly recommend!Sent on 12/19/2019
ETA: Although my "getting married on date" is set for 2020, I have repeatedly tried to put the date as 11/16/2019 and it won't change. However, we have been happily married for 33 days. :)

The Perfect Venue!
Where do I even begin? From the moment we walked into the venue we just knew it was the place for us. Joel and staff do an AMAZING job and go above and beyond to make the day perfect. From the venue itself, to the catering, to everyone who works there, we were blown away. They made the day so stress free, and all of our guests couldn't stop talking about everything. It truly is a magical place, with magical people. I cannot recommend them highly enough.Sent on 09/26/2019

Lovely venue that attracts the loveliest of clients. It's a pleasure to work here when the opportunity arises!
Joel & The staff at Preston Woodall House are just amazing! I cant even describe how attentive they are to each and every Couple! They are extremely responsive, they pitch in on things that are not necessarily their job which a lot of place don't do....AND THE FOOD....AMAZING! I LOVE working with you all! Can't wait until next time!
The Preston Woodall House has been excellent each time I've worked their. Their staff does a fabulous job of keeping the bridal party refreshed and fed during the portraits, and the food has been delicious every time. They make you feel really pampered even as a wedding professional. It is a beautiful building with lovely people running it.
