    Perfection

    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.
