    My June wedding at The Gingerbread Meeting House was amazing!

    My husband and I recently got married at The Gingerbread Meeting House in June and it was an incredible experience!

    Caroline, the venue coordinator, is amazing! She helped answer any questions we had, was very understanding when I didn’t always get her the information she needed on time, and she was easy to get a hold of. The day of coordinator (I’m not sure of her name) was also absolutely wonderful. She helped to make sure the day went smoothly and was extremely professional and helpful. She even helped to watch my toddler during the ceremony and he is super picky about who he will let hold him!

    The day of my wedding was very hot and we initially planned to eat outside. After realizing how hot it was that day, my mom asked if we could move the tables back inside after the staff had already moved them outdoors. My wedding was very small, but I would’ve completely understood if the staff weren’t able to accommodate my request. I am SO thankful they agreed to move the tables back inside though! I was so incredibly grateful as I think everyone was happy we didn’t have to eat in the heat.

    I was truly blown away by how professional everyone was and just what a great job the staff did. We even were given a nice basket with some items in it for us at the end of the night! The staff also put out a box where guests could put advice slips in. I wasn’t expecting that, and I’m so glad they thought to do that!

    We are so glad we chose The Gingerbread Meeting House as the venue for our wedding. I cannot recommend them enough. The venue itself is absolutely beautiful too! Thank you so much to everyone at The Gingerbread Meeting House who had a part in giving us an amazing wedding day!
