Amazing location for our June wedding!
We got married at The Hitching Post on 6/29/19 – and we cannot possibly thank Angela enough for everything she did for us in setting our wedding up from across the country. The venue is absolutely beautiful. The grounds allow for a natural transition from ceremony, to outdoor cocktail hour, to indoor reception. You really have to do very little to the barn in preparation, as the space is beautiful as is. It was so convenient and helpful to have access to the barn the day before, and morning after the wedding. Weather showed possibilities of thunder storms the afternoon of our wedding, and Angela had the barn completely prepped for an indoor ceremony – which luckily we didn’t need. We received so many compliments on how beautiful our wedding was and how beautiful the space is. Angela was so quick to respond to emails, so kind in answering our sometimes silly questions, and so gracious and fun in watching our crazy families let loose. We cannot recommend this space highly enough, and are so thankful for having Angela help make our day so special!Sent on 07/03/2019
