A perfect day to mark the beginning of our life together
Our wedding at the Publick House exceeded our expectations in every way possible. The staff are responsive, knowledgeable and exceptionally professional. They were able to meet our complicated requests with ease. Our day of coordinator, Anthony was amazing, we cannot say enough about him, he made our day perfect. The food and cake far exceeded our expectations and the landscaping ws seasonal and gorgeous. We felt like king and queen.Sent on 10/27/2019

We can not say enough about how wonderful Publick House was from the start of the venue search through the end of reception! Every person we encountered or asked a million questions to was so helpful. The food and cake were amazing, almost all of our guests commented on this (we also did our rehearsal dinner here and received the same feed back).
There were two other weddings the same day as ours and you wouldn't have been able to know just based on how amazing they run things, it is a well oiled machine and executed perfectly every step of the way.
We cannot recommend Publick House enough, it was truly magical.Sent on 10/29/2019
