    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!

    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. :)
