    The Perfect Day

    We just had our wedding at the Publick House on 9/21/19 and everything was absolutely amazing!! We fell in love with this venue the day we drove in to view it and were sent on our way with a bag of sticky buns! Every question I had leading up to the big day was answered by Catherine O’Brien with such kindness and professionalism. The day of could not have been any more perfect. Allison and Sabrina were so attentive, patient, and so down to earth that our day truly went flawless and amazing. I was told that I was “the queen of the day” and these two ladies definitely made me feel that way. The way the barn and Paige Hall were decorated surpassed our expectations. Our guests all raved about how beautiful everything was and how wonderful the food was especially the cake. We know we made the right choice about where we were going to get married from the second the day started. Thank you to all that were involved we appreciate it all from start to finish. ~Danielle and Jeff Wallen
