Ginger and her team did a phenomenal job. They left no detail out. They were there for every step of the wedding and reception and made sure it went as planned. The DJ did a great job of getting people involved and Earnest, the officiant, was personable and friendly and made our ceremony exactly what we wanted. I would recommend their venue to everyone!!!Sent on 09/24/2018

They have everything you need!
My husband and I had a short engagement and I knew we needed to find a venue that did more than just provide a place to get married. Ginger and her staff have nearly everything you need. They do the catering (excellent quality food!), they have all all the decorations, and everything else you need they provide quality recommendations for in a wedding planner. Also, a HUGE benefit they offer is a discounted honeymoon to an all inclusive resort in Mexico. Our wedding exceeded our expectations and our honeymoon even more so. Everything on our wedding day was absolutely perfect!Sent on 05/19/2019

Dream Come True Wedding at The Gingerbread Meeting House!
Oh wow. I don’t even know where to begin. In first meeting Ginger when viewing her venue, her passion and excitement shown through and you can easily see how much she truly cares about helping brides and making the most magical and unforgettable experience of their life. She provided a notebook planner that had all these amazing ideas, tips, planning sheets, vendor recommendations, etc. and I think I slept with that thing for 9 months, it didn’t leave my side! 😂 She has so much to offer! When you say one stop shop, this is it!! I couldn’t think of anywhere else that would have included half of what she does!! And to top all that off, the venue is simply gorgeous! With an outdoor covered area and indoor use as well, it was everything we could have ever wanted!! In the planning process over the months leading up, Ginger responded to everyone of my many emails over questions, details, etc.! At the rehearsal, we met our coordinator Andrea. She was so sweet and so amazing to work with on my day of! She kept everything in check and was so nice and amazing at answering and guiding me with anything I was unsure of. The day of, Ginger, Andrea, and staff worked effortlessly transforming their location into my custom vision! They worked tirelessly around me and what they designed simply took my breath away from the ceremony arrangement, to the reception decor, to everything!!! Which leads me to the food. Can we talk about the FOOD?!? If they owned a restaurant I would probably go there every day! 😂 It seriously was the best bbq chicken, baked macaroni, green beans, rolls, etc. and I’m NOT just saying that because it was my wedding. It was GOOD y’all! I made sure and had time to eat my entire plate I wasn’t letting anyone stop me! And that brings me to even the table decor with the linens and flatware, everything was presented so classically and timelessly it just took our breath away. I couldn’t have asked for a better venue, better experience, or better team to work with. They were incredible and I can never thank them enough for the best day of our lives!Sent on 06/24/2019
