    A seamless dream!

    The Publick House was simply tremendous from start to finish! They coordinated every detail and made it so I had no worries or stress on my wedding day. There was another wedding happening in the morning before mine and I never would have known it. Staff members introduced themselves to me early in the day and checked in often to ensure all was going well and that I didn’t need anything. All I had to worry about was getting ready and they did all the rest. They had me drop off all decor, favors, etc earlier in the week and they set everything up and cleaned it up as well. All the food was wonderful and our guests were very pleased with their meals and cake. Cathy and Anthony S coordinated everything flawlessly and the day went without a hitch thanks to them! I would HIGHLY recommend the Publick House to anyone looking to get married or hold an event!

    Absolute perfection!

    Our experience at the Publick House exceeded every expectation! From the moment we first visited to leaving the day after the wedding, everyone was so communicative and friendly. We couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect day, and that is mostly due to the amazing staff at the Publick House. Cathy O'Brien answered all of our questions beforehand, and Jon and Paige were so attentive on the day of. The food was amazing and the hall was decorated so beautifully for the holidays. We would highly recommend the Publick House!
