This was only the seconds venue that I visited and we booked only a few days after our tour. My wedding was yesterday and this proved the be the absolute perfect place for my intimate wedding. I had about 50 guests and the dining room fit everyone perfectly with comfortable elbow space. The Dr. Phillips house is beautiful with an enchanting historic charm. It can be dressed up or dressed down. The staff was very helpful and flexible. The price is reasonable as well and if u picl Millenia Catering off of their vendor list your wedding will be spectacular. There is not one thing I would change about my wedding event at this venue. The evening became magical as all the market lights came on in the courtyard and we danced the night away.Sent on 02/20/2017

When we went to tour it was immediately love at first site. We will admit that from the photos online it didn’t seem that great, but as soon as we walked through the front doors we knew that was our venue. It’s an antique “Savannah-style” estate complete with antique furniture and an old-time feel. It is very affordable, including the catering and bar services. It’s also a bed and breakfast, so you have the option of renting out all 6 rooms in the house for the night with FREE breakfast for those staying the night! They have a large, newly finished courtyard in the back that is perfect for cocktail hour. They are very accommodating with special requests and Angie is a fantastic person to work with. We are very excited to host our special day here!! The price we listed includes buffet dinner and premium open bar, tables, ceremony chairs, linens, 5 vendor meals, 1 overnight stay for bride and groom, venue, cake cutting, etc.Sent on 09/01/2018
