    Look no further!! The HSH makes dreams come true.

    Hands. down. The absolute most dream worthy wedding venue + most accommodating venue owner in all of the South.

    Sooooo I originally planned to get married in New Orleans in November 2020 but due to COVID and everything that brought, we decided to downsize and move it to my hometown in Picayune. Let me just say that this was not settling AT ALL!!!! First off, the venue looks like it dropped right out of Southern Living but what’s really so charming and whimsical is the team you’ll work with.

    The moment I met the owner, Dustin, I knew we should’ve made this our original plan since day 1. He’s full of charisma, charm, and hospitality…and not to mention he knows how to throw a helluva party!! Since everything was booked for our wedding 12 months out, we already had a team of vendors confirmed out of New Orleans. Dustin was so accommodating and made sure we were able to bring those companies onboard so we weren’t out any extra money… you truly do not find this anywhere!! He coordinated with all of my original vendors to make sure everything would run smoothly day of.

    Then the next curveball… the weather! I was frantic the week of because we were expecting rain all day Friday and Saturday and originally were planning to use all of the grounds for a welcome dinner, brunch, and our reception throughout the weekend… well due to having to create an alternate plan and moving all events under the pavilion, Dustin went the extra mile to make sure no decorations for the reception were visible at the welcome dinner since it had to happen under the same pavilion. He originally was planning to wrap the beams in greenery on Wednesday to get ahead of it, but due to the rain, he waited until everyone was out of the pavilion on Friday night to start adding decor for Saturday’s festivities. I truly didn’t believe he was doing this when he told me. As a bride who had to already change all of the plans, uninvite hundreds of guests, then deal with all of this weather, it meant so much that Dustin cared so deeply about making my fiancé and me happy. You really do not find this level of care anywhere.

    Then the events!!! OH MY GOODNESS!!! We are still receiving so many compliments about the venue as a whole. From the Victorian home where all of my bridesmaids and I stayed the night before then got ready to the luscious green grounds of the HSH, everything is jaw-dropping beautiful. I’ve several friends who’ve gone to weddings in Tulum, Napa, and Italy, and they literally told me that this is the most beautiful venue and wedding reception that they’ve ever been to.

    If you’re thinking of booking the HSH, just do it. I promise you will not regret it and it will forever be the best decision for your wedding weekend. I’m already thinking of a reason to book the HSH again and cannot wait to come back to Picayune to visit Dustin!

    Attentive staff + delicious food + beautiful location = Perfect wedding & a happy bride!

    Everything about my wedding was perfect, and I wouldn't change a thing. The owners are super sweet and helpful. Even their staff was super attentive. They were there for me at all points of the evening, checking on me, making sure I had a drink.

    Only note for brides: Reduce stress on yourself and ask Mrs. Jeanette to coordinate/communicate with your vendors. She has an eye for quality and will not let you down. Had I known she would do this, I could have saved myself several headaches.

    Basically, if you choose The Henry Smith House as your venue, you won't regret it!
