Would Definitely Book the Rand- Bryan House Again!
Not only is the Rand-Byran House a beautiful venue with multiple options for a ceremony or reception, it's owners are top notch! Martha Liles, owner/manager of the venue, is organized and cares about the details. As a planner, I want the best for my couples- and this venue delivered. Martha worked with me to ensure the floor plan for my couple's reception was executed perfectly. She made suggestions on how to best utilize the reception space and gave advice on cocktail hour setup. In addition, she helped me coordinate a surprise carriage ride for the couple during the cocktail hour. Mr. Robert Liles was on site the day of the reception for questions, assistance with table moves, and as an additional contact for our reception vendors. In addition, Mrs. Wanda was on site to assist with any details- even lending a hand with the lighting of multiple tea lights and votives to bring the event space to life. Having held numerous events at the venue, Martha has worked with many vendors. When one of our vendors dropped out last minute, Martha recommended credible businesses that she worked with during past events. While we were able to work though the vendor issue, it was comforting to know Martha was just as concerned as I was about my couple not just liking, but loving their reception. I would definitely recommend this venue to couples looking for a wedding venue.Sent on 10/31/2019

Excellent service and flexibility!
My husband and I can't speak more highly of the everyone at the Rand-Bryan House! COVID-19 forced us to revamp our entire wedding plan and Martha helped us every step of the way to make those changes as painless and seamless as possible. She gave us plenty of options to choose how we wanted to proceed and guided us in that decision-making. We were able to have a beautiful, socially distanced small wedding on the gorgeous property on our original day and are looking forward to being able to have our larger party/reception there next year!Sent on 12/08/2020
